Why people write?
Mapping herstories - "I think I can make a difference, so I write"
Ever wondered, why people write?
No, here the subject is not those who have to write as part of their duty/profession. Writers like Premchand or Kamala Das...Or R K Narayanan or Guru Datt...
Believe me, for some of us, writing is a "cleaning process". Once written down, the heaviness in the chest gets reduced. I know one person who keeps a ruled note book handy and uses it as a trusted friend, to share secrets or worries.
