UNIZULU celebrated the South African National Library Week at the University Library recently where authors shared their thoughts.
Author Sajida Sabjee-Khan said she was inspired by the books and newspapers that she used to read. As a result she found herself being trapped in the love of writing.
“I used to read different books to acquire knowledge and information and today I am an independent writer. I like writing and it’s where I share my thoughts with different people. Gathering with people helps me a lot because I get different views.”
She added that she believed knowledge is power and advised women to think out of the box and know that they are not only there for cooking and having babies. She said since she had done it, they could also do it.
Another author Sadia Crouch is collaborating with Sabjee-Khan in writing books. They presented their joint book entitled Nine Spaces of Chic.
Fazel Khan said he started writing for Free Press and he also wrote for political organisations at the former University of Durban-Westville. Khan said he learned a lot from reading other people’s work to gain ideas.
