Write when the creative juices flow, struck by a passionate creative angst to carve out our own stories, nurture them, praise them or put them on a pedestal, with ink, carving out their space, before presenting them to the world for some sincere scrutiny and sometimes harsh critiques. Writers write, stories and experiences accumulate, memories tickle the pen…everyone of them wants a tribute. -Amitav Chowdhury Continue reading Why write?
Writing is like diving deep into an unknown ocean. With only a few words and phrases to build a raft, the pen becomes the oar. It is scary and there is no sign of the end. The beginning is that of procrastination, or of impulsive decision to start the journey. There is also a feeling of nervousness and about learning the surges of new emotions; … Continue reading Through Writing
Writing seems to be ebullient even while narrating the continuum of depreciating existence. The type of energy writing survives on seems to be of an unearthly nature. As a writer, I feel, there is a narrow labyrinthine scope allowed for a piece of creative narrative to witness the other end of the deliberate maze. All that the maze is composed of are — criticisms, rejections, premature conjectures, … Continue reading Labyrinthine Journey
How well do you comprehend the ambiguity of literature?

Ascend, adopt, adapt, adept- thus, the synchronization of the journey. Writing it is… -Amitav Chowdhury Continue reading Writing it is…
Creativity is birthed anywhere, within the four walls, in the wilderness, in solitude, in the midst of a crowd, and even in semi-conscious sleep. Now, there are so many destinations and myriad avenues for creativity and all we can come up with few words of lament and tired feelings, that too by isolating the heart and mind from all the wonderful places. The missing dimensions … Continue reading It is Essential and Important
Mediocrity is always comparable, noisy, and desultorily vivacious! It weans away the efforts of creativity towards a crowded labyrinth. Thoughts are weighed unenthusiastically, without even caring for the true sentiments. The narcissistic value of mediocrity is a flame that cannot dispel darkness! ~Amitav Continue reading Mediocrity
Are the words whole, or their slices of different meanings being assembled From irrelevant situations, their predicament of being stretched and jumbled Pulled away from their ancient wanderings as we fail them with our effort The pen never has a chance to bathe in thoughtful ink and barely becomes a consort Those silent eyes stare at the glaring misgivings and the ability to distort It … Continue reading Lamentations of Words
