Some scribble ‘something’ on bits of paper, some write in their minds, some techno savvy just type in on some word pad, notepad; some others finger out on their reminders & messages & rest others simply rely on the ones who make efforts to write ‘something’. This writing ‘something’ for quick & easy reference or for just some sake of writing seems to be a rarest of the tasks, at least outside the schooling & college days & life. So the ones who have left behind or rather cleared out those golden vicious days of education have also probably left behind the compass box with classic cartoons & double decker boxes with complimentary accessories, which were carefully packed in those school bags.
So opening one such compass box to explore more & find those fountain pens, pilot ink pens, gripper pens, ball point pens & even pens of no use; in hell lot of designs, sizes, shapes etc. Those evergreen shades of colors of ink or refills, with glittery shine, color pens, lead pencils were very much beautifying the pages, subject to pearl’s handwriting. So thinking about tearing of those usual or even eco friendly papers from those notebooks, long books, rough books, experiment journals, personal diaries, spirally binded registers, memos, phone book directories, mini size notepads & countless stuff to write on. The colors of such long & short sized papers from bright white to pale white, light brown; with stripes & borders of different lengths. Not to forget, rather the uniquely refreshing fragrance of raw paper opened from the new lot or even some old book opened from the scrap dumped for more than couple of years; can still be felt at the very spur of thinking about it.
So having arranged for the desired papers, with requisite sizes, lucky pen with filled ink or some refill, a place to sit back & relax just to pen down that ‘something’ out of mind & on to the paper. So just give it a thought as to when you had written that ‘something’, to let express yourself, be it couple of words to form sentences, & sentences to build up into paragraphs. To start with, if you are an amateur, than just let open your mind & think of any abstract thing, familiar events or wacky incidences in the past or even some weird experience you have had at any point of time. The moment you start to pen down, you will for sure gradually find that the words are just flowing in & around your mind to give you innumerable options & competing to be one of that ‘something’ classic yet interesting & appreciative piece of art form called as ‘writing’. It is literally on the verge of getting instinct in the very near future, just coz we are the techno savvy generation, letting our fingers to crawl over the alpha-numeric keys, be it on a smart phone, lappy or just a simple mobile phone.
It’s not merely that I am used to writing on ‘something’ or anything when time permits or when I permit the time to spare for ‘writing’, whatever be the occasion, routine course of activities or even any special moment. But writing makes me more expressive & innovative in my own way at best possible point of time. So just let yourself come out of the cocoon, & give it a try to explore the potentials in ‘writing’ that ‘something’; at least once in a day until you are addicted to it & also your world will be filled with words to command proficiently over everything.
To give a simple instance, you are still reading on one of the brilliant gadgets; & still you are thinking to write down especially with pen & paper; while you are just scrolling down with ease, a couple of clicks away from typing that “something”….
