Writing 101- Day 1: I Write Because……
I write because I enjoy writing. It helps me write about things that is not always possible to carry on in a conversation.
I am not sure my friends or relatives would like me to talk in length what my thoughts are, some may show interest only half-heartedly ;others may tune me out; thinking what I’m saying is not interesting enough for them.
When I write I please myself, I do not have to think about anyone; it’s just my world and I get the luxury of putting my thoughts in print. Some may read it , others may not. I write because it helps me to express myself.
I like to write about myself, who I am, why I’m writing, why do I have a blog. I have made friends through my writing.
Blogging has helped me write about things I would not otherwise write.
I’m glad I decided to translate some of Tagore’s poems and his songs. I feel it is interesting for people who’ve heard about him, but are unable to know about his writings because of the language barrier. In a very small way I’ve tried to post some of his writing by translating them.
