#Everyday Inspiration, Day One, Why Do I Write?
Day One : Why Do I write?
The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword’ is an adage coined by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839, indicating that communication, or in some interpretations, administrative power or advocacy of an independent press, is a more effective tool than direct violence.
I believe writing helps me to express clearly which a violent weapon cannot. I know writing is powerful, politicians are afraid of press which is why they call it ‘fake News,’ which convinces those who either are blind followers or do not understand the words in print.
Our sub-continent achieved independence with the help of powerful writers like Tagore, Iqbal, and other writers, they did not use weapons to drive our foes away, they used their writing to convince the masses to understand their poverty will not disappear as long as they’re inactive and blame their fate for their condition.
God wants us to use our intellectual power to change our lives. Violence will never help change our current situation.
The politicians put fear in the minds of innocent people, they tell them everything the press write is fake news!
