The Missing Art Of Traditional Writing

I opened up a facebook page for my group of Medical College and closely see that it expected the Viewer to act on inviting phrases: ' write something '.

Before I answer I happen to play with these words for a while. The phrase seems to be a flaw with the literal for me. It must be said ... ' Type ' of something and not writing. A few years ago when writing with a pen became a habit for most writers (as PCs and laptops that are affordable for most), people often say ' write ' (i.e., using a pen and paper) and say ' type ' when using a typewriter.

Just today I came across an interesting story from the book ' the continent Of Circe ' by Nirad c. Chaudhuri. Once, his friend, the writer Khushwant Singh has lent her new typewriter was a friend, a talented Bengali poor economy. All was good until the name Khushwant Chaudhuri in an interview as one of the writers who like to read. But this is not without salt. He said, "the poor he can't even buy a typewriter,! So I had to lend him one. " Nirad dumbfounded that his country's poverty made into delicious dishes for the readers. So this ' poor ' Benglee his last possessions were stripped of ... his pride and prestige. After reading this story, I realized that the ' writing ' on a typewriter isn't so rare then.

But because the gentlemen who ' write ' (not typed) in the United Kingdom, it may. Vernacular writers I think till date choose to write (literature with pen and paper). But, if we are talking about people in General, in the current time, it is still true because now the term has become a synonym. How many of us actually writing a letter or even a post card with birthday wishes handwriting strokes of our emotions?

Life has come on fast forward mode for the most part, the communications explosion has connected people with the click of a mouse, and one can communicate with the ' number of n '-a desirable desk in a fraction of a second. Of course, it is now customary to invite relatives and friends via mail (via the internet) rather than take trouble completing the long, exhausting, organized way to write dozens of letters to many people, and then fix them with gum (very often we see most of the fixtures barely noticeable at home when needed) before dropping them in the mail a mile away, hoping at least half of them will reach their destination in time. All this suffering has become a thing of the past, thanks to modern technology.

This morning, a Sunday, I had the chance to chat leisurely with 80-year-old who is a good listener. I reveal how the charm of seeing old letters and manuscripts is gradually growing rare and rarely last more than a decade. One can find many hidden gems in the papers ... like the quality of handwriting, mood and character of the person when writing it (whether it's perfect, organized, calming, or vice-versa). In the script of Tagore is usually we see that the author used to convert invalid section of the line, the words or the full column to a variety of people who have a unique art form. It added to the charm of the main stream of his poetic creations and themes. Whether the Tagore sitting with a computer with software to make Bengali poetry Avro (I should know about software from my dear friend Siddhartha I dear m. address as ' Sidhdha Mukh ' and most of all, he doesn't mind it being used and ... can be abused by me), how on earth would this gem fell out of his fingers (instead of ' hand ' ... again, I try to be ' honest ' clinical as we use the entire hand in writing and only the fingers while typing). We will, as a result only get part of it through the genius of modern techniques of ' writing '. It will be an abject-dina products that very 'un-Tagorian '.

The point is, with the all-round construction of us unconsciously accepted typing and writing as a synonym. But in this case the smooth transformation of the norm and practice a lot of the charm has been lost which bore a sense of humanity which includes qualitative dimension of inspiring and thought-provoking (like the colorful Rainbow). What we have to offer in its place is flavorless, dull, stereotyped, charmless, colorless method of expression.
