Why Do I Write?

When I started writing on my blog, I used to ask myself if I should write at all. If yes, why? I would like to share my views on this topic with you.

I write for myself. This may sound egoistic, but it is self-explanatory as well. Because I want freedom from my thought cycle, I get mental catharsis by just writing out whatever it is. While having some serious events with myself, say the death of my mother first and then father, writing down makes a record of my emotions at a given time which I’m never going to repeat.

I do write for my daughter Vaishali, son Rahul and their friends. I want to tell my experiences and let them know about me. I have done this in Life At 60 article series – it is my mini-autobiography, telling all about me. Article on Marriage, Parents in old-age homes, etc. are other such articles.

I want to summarize what I have read. My book reviews are one example. I can re-read the book and memorize the same after reading my own book reviews.

I want to be a history teacher. I have read so many books on the history of Gujarat, India and the world, I want to tell this as a story-teller to all. History of India for No Time Tagged People, Partition of India and Before World War III Kills You are such articles teaching history without bothering much. And the series will continue.

I want to teach all the major religions. It is a wide subject, but I want to write as briefly and as precisely as possible. I have done this in Jainism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam. I will carry this on and on.

An ultimate for all, the life expectancy of an Indian is 65, Gujarati is 70 and my caste – Anavil – is 75 years. I am 62 and so, I have to start preparing for my zeroing, I – even from the highest level of my physical, intellectual and financial gains – will be nowhere, just a zero. My writing is keeping a record of all I want to say.

If I conclude without this last point, I won’t be happy – I want to exhibit my level of high intelligence and prove it to myself, if not to others. The series of around hundred articles prove this for me and makes me a showman of the types I want to be.

  2. @ Bharat uncle, I liked the way you accepted the 'process of zeroing' with so much calmness and positivity. It already reflects the level of intelligence of your mind. Commendable .. Keep writing, and it will be a treasure of knowledge for your offsprings and for us as well..

Pyramid Of Virgin Dreams

This is a novel depicting the story of an IAS officer’s life. Author Vipul Mitra is himself an IAS officer serving in Gujarat and living with his family in Ahmedabad. This book could take birth after ten years of thinking, writing and rewriting!  The title pyramid was derived from an Egyptian pyramid with a gigantic structure, a symbol of power stretching higher and higher into the sky. The author compares the pyramid with bureaucrats. He says the only difference was that one housed deceased Egyptian pharaohs while other housed living, conniving, tattling officers. There is a long (300 pages!) story of dreams those are virgin like unconsummated physical relation! You will read this novel to know what happens to Kartikeya Kukereja who meets his first failed love Revati Kapoor after both married and long gap of time passes. Revati desires to re-unite but does Kartikeya have the courage to hold on Revati? Honest? Mediocre? Coward? Does he ultimately succeed in fitting her in his life?  Th

Anavils - An Endangered Community

After Parsis, Anavils ( Anavil Brahmins , અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why? Because,    - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.

Gujarat – Introduction And History

A student of History has to understand Geography, Economics and Anthropology simultaneously. A person curious to know about world history has to proceed step by step, learning his own state first, then country and then only one can understand world history. Well, appreciating above facts, I am starting my study with History Of My State Of Gujarat . I have put it in order of time and later described important states and rulers.
