Writing Prompt: Share the Love
Tell us about another blogger who has influenced your own online journey.
I started blogging with zero knowledge. I was lost and wasn’t quite sure I’d continue. Suddenly one blogger who is also a participant of the course I’m doing came up with a few suggestions: He encouraged me to translate Tagore’s poems, it’s because my native tongue is Bengali and Tagore’s work is written in the same language.
At first I was nervous, I thought it was a huge task for me, would I be able to do it. I accepted the task, but thought I might not be able to continue. I translated one at a time and he was very kind and generous, he read them and left his wonderful comments. I was encouraged and soon found it enjoyable.
He also asked me to write about some towns and cities in my homeland which I’ve done. He continued to read my work and left valuable comments which is the reason I’m still writing.
His name is Akhtar Waseem Dar, I am very grateful to him.
