It has been ages that I wrote anything, or to be more clear, wrote anything publically! It was a call from a dear student Ashutosh that made me resolved to write openly about all that I feel so strongly about. “Ma’am. you must write and expose it all…”, he said in a sincere voice. “if you don’t write, their purpose in taking from you what they so despise and are afraid of would be fulfilled”. How right he is. By not writing anything was I not helping them in achieving all that they wanted?
But on the other hand is my Little one who says that these people don’t even deserve my contempt as they are so vile so why to give them importance by writing about them, even if it is to despise them. “Don’t bring yourself to their level, it is awfully deplorable” she say.
And so far as I am concerned, I think of Howard Roark who says to Toohey, “I don’t even think about you” and walks away! So do I walk away and don’t write about them or do I expose their misdeeds or do I write but write with impersonal perspective attached to my writings.
I believe that my writings will have some personal touch even if I try to avoid getting personal but then I am not a God!
May my readers advice me as what to do?
