Pen's might

The pen is sharper  than the sword. So true. Particularly in the Blogosphere, where the power of the pen is amplified by the keyboard ! Writers have influenced history, more than the men of the sword. According to Indian philosphy, there is not a philosopher who is not a poet. Writing can survive the cosmological cycles.

Another verse says like this

A fool is respected only in his own house
A landlord only in his village
A king only in his kingdom
Whereas a writer is extolled everywhere !

Swagrihe poojyathe moodah
Swagrame poojyathe prabhu
Swadese  poojyathe raja
Vidwan Sarvathra Poojyathe
