First Place, Poetry: “In The Valleys of Kashmir,” by Sharvari Deshpande
Grade, SYBA, S P College, Pune, Maharashtra, India
“I was browsing the internet one day when I came across the ‘Writing for Peace Young Writers’ Poetry Contest. I read more on the website and I decided to submit my entry for the same.”
To begin with, I am an artist and I love to express myself through my paintings. But there was a point in my life when I was feeling low and that is when writing, through the medium of words, came to me as a supporting friend. I began writing by expressing myself, and then I started to elucidate my feelings about my surroundings and social issues through it.
I aspire to be a civil servant, so that one day I have the authority to bring change in the society and work for its betterment. I want to help those children dream who cannot afford to dream in their current conditions. And that is my ultimate goal.
I feel that my writings and the work that I will do in my future can contribute to bring this change and make someone’s tomorrow better!
