  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    There is a very subtle, diffused and fine line of demarkation that separates the two worlds of a Reader and a Writer. In my view, the Reader crosses that fine line and becomes the Writer, either when she/he does not find the right material of quality to read, or when they realize that their vivid and deep experiences will enrich and uplift the lterature from status quo. It's always good to share express yourself, and share your experiences and thoughts as the Writer, no matter how trivial those may be in the eyes of others. It's a wonderful way to return something precious to the society, retain the valuable information, and salvage the most valuable in this most uncertain world.
