An aspiring Marathi writer Sushil Swami talking about his journey – Engineer by education and then find out his passion for writing.




Belong to a small village Borgaon from the Solapur district, traveling from different cities, Sushil didn’t know at that time that this experience will be helpful to him in the upcoming future. His primary education was in Vidarbha, Secondary in Western Maharashtra, College in Marathwada, and finally engineering again in Vidarbha.

Remembering his first interaction with theatre so vividly, he said that he was in 7th standard where he got a double role in the skit. After this, he was a little detached from the theatre but used to write poems or an article. Spending time on writing he realized that by doing the writing, he can express his thoughts more clearly rather than performing on stage. 

Around 2010 he has started official creative writing. Sushil Swami had written an article for the college magazine. The reason he inclined more towards theatre writing is that he believes it’s challenging and it had to write by keeping certain boundaries in mind. That’s when he realized that the life of a fictional character is definitely interesting. As a result of his father’s transfer during their service, he has been able to write about his experiences in different parts of the places where he lived.

While studying at the Government Engineering College, Chandrapur, Sushil Swami was selected for the State Drama Competition. The journey that has begun from there in this field of writing is still ongoing after the completion of engineering education. He decided that he wants to continue his journey in this field and for that, he thought he needs to gain more professional knowledge in terms of writing. He came to Pune to work in the field of drama. In Pune, Mr. Abhiram Bhadkamkar who is a renowned Marathi play writer and screenwriter, and also Mr. Prashant Damle, a renowned Marathi theatre actor-producer encouraged him to continue writing.

Political satire is his favorite subject. Sushil Swami said that, when the gap between satire and reality is narrowed, the situation becomes gloomy. If the political and social situation comes before the people through satire, the awfulness of that situation is felt more intensely. His play “Our Politics Was Stolen” won the first prize for writing in the state level drama competition held in Solapur and the same play also won the award for “Best Eye-Catching Performance” in the state level trilingual drama competition held in Nashik district.

Writer Sushil Swami

In October 2019, where Sushil Swami was selected for the playwriting workshop organized by the National School Of Drama, New Delhi. Shanahan Khan, Rajiv Naik, and Abhiram Bhadkamkar provided valuable guidance in the workshop. Apart from drama, he had written a short film named “Self Talk” which won 3 prizes.

When asked about what approach he used to start writing about something, Sushil Swami said that he usually likes to write things as simple as they can be. According to him, a writer should be honest with his own thoughts. Sushil Swami always wonders how great writers used to make at least 3 drafts of their work. Later when he started writing drama or any short film, he realized that your first draft is purely naive. Once you made the first draft you have to forget about it and keep the draft as it is. When you came back to what you have written you automatically have a new perspective in your writing as your subconscious mind is always evolving with your story. 

Sushil Swami said that he feels, like music, there is a rhythm in dialogue writing also. The reason he feels why rhythm is important is that it makes conversation between your characters more engaging. For writing, he thinks that the person himself is his best critic. One has to have read his work without the perspective of the writer. 

At the end when asked about his perspective of writing, Sushil added that, the purpose of his writing is he likes to tell stories, and he wants people to experience the world of his stories. He doesn’t want to restrict himself only to a certain medium and be flexible to any writing genre.
