Everyone in their life has somebody leaving a deep impact, changing them entirely. So is mine. However, I have too many of them inspiring and guiding me throughout my course of journey and one of them whom I follow to lead my life as he did is Ruskin Bond. I know that perhaps I’m too late to chase my dream and aspiration, but of everybody who let me muster up courage to take leap and follow my dream, Ruskin Bond would undoubted be the most important person.
I remember gobbling up stories,novels in my schooldays many of which were his masterpiece. I started knotting stories in my mind but never I had the courage to pen them. My life went on. I graduated,completed my master in HR (Human Resource) and started working with a company after post-graduation. Things would have probably remained unaltered had I not decided,one fine morning, to write stories and everting that once I used to knotting-on in my fantasy.
I noticed that I was very expressive about my opinion about which I wrote in many social networking platforms.I started writing blogs, articles which somehow grew in me the confidence that I was lacking. Then, I read through the life of Ruskin Bond, the journey, the unbelievable talent, the writing prowess that he showed right from his young age at sixteen.Untouchable was his first short story that he wrote in 1951.Then, many stories and poems came to being from his magical touch which remained alive in history
Today, as I write this short synopsis, I proudly say that I have many small stories, articles, poems in my kitty which I could have never written had Mr. Bond and many other authors likehim not inspired me to write in. And many unknown writers like me for that matter.
