More thoughts about as to “Why do I write?”

There are tremendous healing power in writing, can work as a therapy, as the best medicine of broken heart. 

By writing, I don’t actually  mean it to be the work  of an author or a poet. 

It can be just anything, even insignificant. It doesn’t matter what you write, whether it’s a masterpiece, a heartwarming letter or simply a zig zag scribble in your diary.

 The thing that matters is, you are not carrying any more any burden of truth, spoken or un-spoken, discussed or un-discussed, disclosed or un-disclosed.

Writing  enables you to introspect. It’s only through writing that you realize how much you know or don’t know.

 It’s the only way to know the circumference of your knowledge or lack of it. It can even surprise you. It’s something like looking at a mirror. The only difference is, here the mirror reflects your inner image instead of outer image.

Writing enables  you to live in your dream world. You can fly into the world of imagination,  be the creator of it and see and show the world your own perspective. 

The most important thing is that, at the same time you can live here and control this completely. When you write about this dream, even if you come out of it at the end, a reality of this dream is always there with you, the written words.

Who knows, it can even be a masterpiece in course of time. Even if it doesn’t become a masterpiece, you can re-live this dream again and again whenever you feel like.

Writing  has the power to calm down your restless heart releasing all the tensions. 

It can enlighten your mind and soul. You can realize the power of your fingers when it brings out all the emotions from all chambers of your heart in the form of writing.

 Writing has got the advantage over a heart to heart talk, in the sense that, here you needn’t bother about the other person’s feelings and trust-distrust that much. It’s mostly your own territory where you are the king and the king maker, both.

Writing can make you forget your wounds, the hustle and bustle of this noisy world, your depressions, frustrations and saddest thoughts. When your heart breaks, when you lose your dear ones, writing can be the best consolation.  At times you may even forget your all hurts and pains in the joy of creation.

    हमारे संस्कृत में कथन है की लेखन अक्सर
    “स्वान्तः सुखाय, न परेषांहिताय” की अवधारणा पर चलता है। हम अपनी भावना अपने लिए प्रकट करते हैं, न की दूसरों के लिए।हाँ जब उस रचना से समाज का कुछ भला हो जाए तो वही महान शिल्प का रूप ले लेती है
