Half a year blew away With it carnage Leaving wreckage For a while To sense make Is it an Error 404 Of a time Where every search Hits a ‘Firewall’ A Great Wall Of Challenges, Confront with a mask With a ‘distance’ From ‘Business as Usual’
Writing is an art. English is a language, rather a class affect in India, but writing clearly, is about thinking clearly. Writing is the best pedagogical tool for thinking through ideas, cutting the clutter of noise. It is sad writing is learnt by default rather than by design. Writing is not about scribbling your class 10/12 essay from the guide book. Attention spans might be plummeting, however text is not dead, rather sky rocketing as we are reading the most. We need Amish as well as Spivak. Hoping that formal writing education picks up in India.
