It is that moment again when the reader in me woke up the writer in me. I’m amazed how any form of expression and creation is so divine. A piece of writing, music, movies, art, and any many things we ‘create’ can make us immortal! Be it Steve Jobs through Apple, Jagjit Singh through his Ghazals, Rumi through his writings, or Rajesh Khanna through his films – aren’t they all immortal? Because even today we talk about them, we use and enjoy their expressions.
And Writing is such a beautiful form of expression. Either you write it for yourself, for others to read, or both, impact of some sort is inevitable. There are times when you write for yourself, to clear your mind, give way for thoughts to flow, uninhibitedly and unwaveringly. Which otherwise remain stuck in a labyrinth fighting with each other, troubling each other, and you of course. In the process, ignorantly though, you explore yourself, know your mind, heart, and where the thoughts are actually heading. Writing for self could be so healing, which probably I’m doing now for no specific reason. It is like I’m telling my self to get back to writing. Or may be I’m trying to remind myself how beautiful it is to write out your mind.
Also, we write to preserve beautiful moments in the best way possible. Because only you can express what you experience. And when you flip back these pages of life you made for yourself, it ensures a beautiful walk down the memory lane. And weaving such beautiful pages of life with fiction and allowing it for people to read is another level! Writing is even more amazing from a readers’ perspective. When you read, you are knowing something, and most importantly you are knowing someone. Every piece that comes from a writer is coupled with his/her emotions and creativity. At the core, a write up is various corners of an author’s mind put together!
Books that keep you intrigued or poems that make you emotional, fiction that makes you believe or bios that inspire, it is amazing how words can leave a huge impact! Indeed, every one of us is immortal in our words. Someone rightly said – ‘you are what you write’, and this way we all can be immortal! And I’m glad I am!
