Being immortal

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.

eynjuls-writingAnd 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!

    Writing for yourself more satisfying then writing just for the sake of it. We often surprise our self after reading what we wrote. Nice post. Keep writing :)

    Wow. I couldn’t agree more with your words! Today, if I go through things I wrote years ago, whether a journal, or a blog or a story, I learn so much more about myself than I ever thought possible.

    Loved this post!

    I write to heal. It’s good that you’re getting back. It always helps, I feel, to clear one’s thoughts and gain some peace of mind.

    Where is my comment, something is terribly wrong with wordpress. I wrote a comment the day I shared this post on FB, check your spam please.

    It is such a nice post, I mean any writer would fall in love with it. :)

    1. Harsha

      I checked the spam folder, couldn’t find your comment. Something must be wrong with WordPress. That’s okay! Thank you so much for loving the post, Saru! :):)

        i write for 2 reasons .. first, what goes in my mind, i want to put it down and free myself from holding it there for too long and secondly it gives that nostalgic feeling (after few years) when you look back your own pages and think about what mood or situation you were in while writing such posts 😛

        very well written harsha .. it’s been a long time since i last visited your blog ..my apologies ..

        hey how do i subscribe to your blog so that i do not miss any more updates…?

    I strongly agree with what you say. Writing is a wonderful thing.
    By writing, unsaid things can be expressed beautifully.
    By writing, we can express it buried within us.
    About immortality, I agree, immortality is our work that can be enjoyed a few people or many people.
    Once again I strongly disagree with your opinion this

  14. matheikal

    Absolutely, writing is one of the best means of expression. If more and more people take to writing there will be less and less violence (or any kind of evil) in the world!

    Writing like a true writer :)
