The Writer

You know what’s the best thing about being a writer? We live different lives every single moment. We watch things much more keenly. What to the world is pointless and inciting, for its inviting.

Instead, we embrace them, learn from them, and capture them in our

नैतिक बनाम अनैतिक

जो सोये हैं नींद में गहरी हम उठा सकते हैं उन्हें पर जो हैं जागकर सोए हम नहीं उठा सकते उन्हें उजाले में किया हर कार्य नैतिक नहीं होता अंधेरे में किया हर कार्य अनैतिक नहीं होता अंधकार और प्रकाश तो प्रकृति का नियम है जो दोनों में करे कार्य नैतिक वही बड़ा संयम है थक जाते हैं कार्य से दिन में तो रात विश्राम देती है जब मन हो जाता है कुंठित तो रात
