I was talking to my friend the other day. Things here in India are a bit different from other countries. She was talking about how it is difficult to be a dancer in India. The society does not respect your talent, tags you as a lady of bad character and even your parents are not with you.

I smiled at her and told her how difficult it is to be a writer.

First of all, when you are a dancer, at least your friends think it is cool. This is not the case with writers here. If you write love poems, or things which make you feel sad. You are labelled as a depressed, antisocial and pessimistic person. Your friends tease you asking what’s wrong with your life. And the person for who you write all these things, doesn’t care at all. It’s too difficult to be a writer.
