WHY I WRITE

Please welcome Binod to the Writer’s Journey Blog this week.
WHY I WRITE
I am Binod Dawadi from Purano Naikap 13, Kathmandu, Nepal. I have completed my master’s degree in English from Tribhuvan University. I get motivation and enlightenment from reading literature. It inspires me and makes me a better man, changes my habits, and my writing slowly developed from reading the work of others.
I read the various genres and types of literature such as essays, short stories, poems, novels, and drama. I used to believe that all things are materialistic, and all things are related to wealth. I thought I could do anything with wealth… I could achieve happiness and fulfill my American dream. But when I read and read and completed my master’s degree, I began to realize that money is not everything.
This paper (money) cannot provide the happiness it promises, and also it creates discrimination and division as well. For those who have no money, no one listens to their voices… So, I decided to listen to their voices, and I started to write.
My aim of writing is to give justice to the people who are in pain. Whose voices are neglected and not heard. They weep and cry all day and night, struggle and do hard work in their life. But they can't join their hand and mouth. I have also read texts related to them like Heart Of Darkness, Sailing To The Byzantium, The Waste Land and Kubla Khan. Such text motivates me so much to write and do something in literature so their voices may be heard.
So, I started to write. I express the situations of society as poverty, women’s inequality, young generations problems, child life problems and elderly problems.
I also focus on the metaphysical world like looking at the world which is beyond imagination, and which is beyond our control. In thoughts writers bring forth worlds like Utopia. I think myself and other writers are doing so to heal our own pain also. Maybe to resolve our problems which cannot be unraveled in this world, and which need to be answered in any world. So, I don't look at any particular issue. I write about all the things of this world and the metaphysical world to heal the people and the world. Writing works as a medicine.
One’s writing can exist in immortal time, and it will be a response to the same problems or situations of the people or the world. Without writing we can't express our imaginations or thoughts to the world. People can be motivated as well and get inspiration from our writing.
A writer is a third God, so I sometimes imagine I am God and write to try and solve the problems of the people. To give justice to them. Some of my published books are The Power Of Words, The Power Of Words 2, The Life Of A Vampire and others are coming soon.
The loving audiences and readers sustain my writing. I never want to stop my writing journey. The only advice I have for other writers is that they connect to writers and literary groups and just write. They can sharpen their talent and be great writers. This is a digital world, and it is very easy to learn, write and publish your work.
