What should I write?


What should I write???
Nothing comes in my mind.
No idea and no creativity.
How can I be so lazy?
Thought of writing something real.
Ended up writing the unreal.
This happens several times.
But I really enjoy such times.

Writer’s are different from rest of the world.
They have the power to create and change the world.
Writing requires imagination and thinking.
Every literary piece is amazing.
Be it love, romance, sad or motivational.
Writer’s are a source of inspiration.
I too want to write something now.
By reading it, you can say waw.
I am willing to write.
What should I write?
Not able to think the exact plot.
Do I need to take a rest to create the new plot?
Thinking from morning to evening.
I am not able to write anything.
But I will write soon.
With a positive noon.
But…
For the present.
What should I write???
Nothing comes in my mind.

The Writer’s Block…


Writing is an art. When a writer pens down his creativity with the use of magical words, a new literary piece is born. It takes immense effort to write, from beginning to the end. What to write and how to present it? It happens several times when you thought of writing something chosen but came up writing on something else. Isn’t it??? Even though when you come up writing something else which you didn’t thought of doing so and when the end result is satisfying, it is again a new creation. This happened with me several times. I think to write something specific and come out of writing something else.

Writing gives me satisfaction and I am sure it gives satisfaction to all who writes. But what happens when the writers are unable to write for some time or the thinking ability slows down for a while. The situation where writers are unable to produce their literary pieces is what we call the “writer’s block”. It is the situation where the author loses the ability to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown. This is quite natural and happens with every writer. It gives the writer to take rest from writing for a while and come back with refreshing new literary pieces. Going forward, refreshment does play a role when one comes back. As the mind is ready, devoted and the best part is, one writes from his heart.

As it is said, when you write keep the heart and the soul intact in your literary work, then only readers will get the real fragrance and taste of your writing.  Don’t let the “heart and soul” missing in your work. Writer’s block is a way to revive yourself, think little different and come up with a new genre. For example, if someone is writing mostly on romanticism, he may come up writing on social issues etc. I think the writer’s block gives a chance to think differently, try different genre and also present in different way. I have been away from writing several times. In blogging world, I was silent for about six months too due to my studies and other personal stuffs but was always happy to come back. I avoid forceful writing. Whenever I have something in my mind, I try to present to all of you. Writer’s block is not a misfortune. There might me several reasons making writers to go in the writer’s block, from personal to professional etc. But there is always a chance for come back. So, what is your take on writer’s block? Have you ever been in the writer’s block? Do share your views and experience…

The road ahead…


 

The road ahead is immense.
One needs to focus and be present.
Not only physically but mentally as well.
That may turn all into well.
Life has many options available.
Which one to choose is crucial.
Choosing by interest or compromise.
One has to think and decide.
Tough decision is required some time.
Carrying you ahead of time.
Think and decide.
As…
The road ahead is immense.
One needs to focus and be present.

Convert into positive…


Life has no reason to cry.
It is we who make ourselves cry.
The way we perceive things is important.
Rather than to make our mind insolvent.
Why we always think negative?
Better to convert into positive.
Ups and downs are part of life.
They are necessary to stand and survive.
We become happy when seeing good news.
What happens when it comes for bad news?
Converting bad to good is a challenge.
It is we who have to manage.
It’s time to be practical.
Instead of being philosophical.
Thinking in the right direction.
One will reach the destination.
Stop indulging in blame game.
Put the effort and win the game.
It can be done if executed properly.
This can be achieved if planned properly.
Why we always think negative?
The question is still alive…
Instead of thinking negative.
Approach should be converting  to positive.
Converting to positive.

Why do I write?


Why do I write?
A question of which I never got an answer.
It gives satisfaction and pleasure.
Gives a chance to talk in leisure.
Even many think poets are mad.
They are not able to judge is it good or bad.

Why do I write?
I write as I love to do so.
Have no specific reason in doing so.
Walking in the streets of life.
I have found a good reason to survive.
Writing has the potential to change.
Requires the authors to manage.

Why do I write?
No real reason.
Still an unanswered question.
I write to talk to myself.
One can convey his feelings to himself.
Writing power is infinite.
Rather than to remain finite.
It requires one to explore inner and outer world.
Once done, it can change the world.

Why do I write?
People say I am mad.
Yes I am mad…
Mad about writing.
Passionate about to think out of the academics.
Writing gives me inner satisfaction.
That requires giving no explanation.
Why do I write?
I write as I love to write…

What is good and bad ?


There are times when we are not able to distinguish between the good and the bad. How do we come to a conclusion whether this is good or that is bad ? Is there a parameter for the same ? Well… this is an open debate and will remain as everyone has its own way to distinguish between the two. One thing can be good for someone and the same can be bad for others. This happens for sure. This article discusses about the goodness and badness.

In the fast moving world, we often come to circumstances where we are  not in a condition to come to a conclusion. A dilemma surrounds us. How do we call something is good ? If somebody helps you in trying condition, is that good ? When you are forced to do what you don’t want to do, is that good ? The normal answer is yes and no respectively.  There is also a time when we take some startling decisions hoping to have good impact in future but reverse happens. Life is full of twists and turns. Every individual has its own way to distinguish between the two.

Let me give some practical examples. Suppose a boy and a girl are in love with each other. The girl suddenly thinks that he is not a perfect match for her and decides to call an end to the relationship. When the boy comes to know the same he will be in shock for sometime for sure. Boy will definitely have  a kind of negativity and darkness at that time and in general he will say the girl did very bad to me. Ladki ne mere sath bahut ganda kiya… bla, bla etc… 😦  The reverse can also happen.  The thing is the boy thinks that the girl had done bad to him and at the same time the girl will think its good that I decided to dump him…. Now have a look at a different perspective. Suppose there are two friends who are having good friendship for a long time. First one has never been in bad doings and the second had done some bad in the past but not to his friend.  Both are having equal trust on each other. Suddenly there is a U turn taken by the second one due to greed or some other reason and he did something to his best friend which the later had never expected which ultimately lands his friend in no mans land. Now with this kind of betrayal the one who had never done bad in his life seems to have totally gone out of his goodness. He starts doing things which is totally out of his domain and range indulging in nuisance activities and ultimately harming others as well. Here betrayal made a good man finally coming in to a bad man now.  Is it right to become bad from good ?

The question what is good and what is bad has no answer in general. This is also a question which was running in my mind for many years. So I thought of raising this uncommon question in the form of this article. At the end, I would like to share one of the quotes of one of the greatest son of India, Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati  who in this quote had given a strong message which makes this quote one of my favorite.

When bad does not leave their badness why does the good leave there goodness.

            – Maharshi Dayand Saraswati 

 

So what according to you is good and bad ? Share your views… 🙂
