Solace in writing

Why do we write? To express. Most of the people would say that. And its 100% true. To me writing is like dancing or drawing where you are not bound by limits, you express what  you feel.

I have also realized that for someone like me writing is a getaway for the unspoken words. I am not shy but I am very cautious to say what I want to, when and where. Does that bind me? At times yes. And when I write, there is no gauging of situation, you lay your words out on a plain canvas and let them take their own shape. At times these words lay a larger impact than what they would have left if spoken! Because when you talk you flow in emotions, so does when you write, but you have ample opportunities to correct yourself.

At times when we meet people we just fall short of words, maybe we miss the spontaneity. But the moment we talk to the person in writing, in any form, message, text, letter, email, we are much more free and open to discuss things.

It has its flip side too. When you are writing it’s more of a monologue. People who read it do not respond instantly and they can’t see how you are emoting. This is a sign of DANGER! Because many a times even something said for good might be taken the other way round.

But as they say that words always inspire action, whatever you speak or write, you will always receive a reaction – good, bad, ugly. But the important part is to emote, express, communicate.

It’s better to hear some music than not hearing anything at all!

Founder, Happy Roots. Passionate about agriculture, social change and rural economic development. I am on a mission to address the biggest problems faced by small and marginal farmers in India with technology and supply chain efficiencies. I work with small and tribal farmers across Maharashtra and help them connect directly with end consumers in high potential urban markets. At Happy Roots we not only build market linkages for our farmers but help them train and upgrade their skills so that we can nurture the next breed of micro entrepreneurs.


  1. Very True! I find writing to be very therapeutic and healing- its a form of expression and its a great way to get in touch with yourself! I’m hoping one day to write a novel.
