Commerce of Commercial Writing

A commercial writer is one

Writes as naturally as he eats

It is so natural as sex

Someone says…

Mocking to many and shocking to me

Inspired by Arundhati Roy’s and Arvind Adiga’s

Common heroes of Indian English writers

Like a jet lag

There seems a time lag in thinking

And re-thinking in writing his thinking

But I am glad we didn’t

Stop thinking in mother tongue

We have a father tongue too…

Essential whether father cares for or not

Calculating convenience of father tongue

Like a window shown us the world

Taught us to be smart

Prolific writing…

Tumbling out of dictionary

I wonder when we will stop

Degrading our mother tongue

In much learned father tongue…?

After all! Father is only a belief!!!
