Like a good school boy writing an essay I shall begin this blog with an introduction - commenting on the act of blogging itself. I like writing. I have been writing ever since I learnt to write (what a coincidence!). So blogging is not something entirely new that I am trying. But, there is a non-trivial difference. This can and will(I hope) be read by other people. This warrants a change of style- primarily in the degree of modesty. The face that I show to myself is not really modest though I don't really like that too much as it can keep one from learning from others. Anyway I don't like to me immodest in public and since this blog is public I shall attempt to be modest. If someone takes a sufficient interest in my blog I would appreciate comments where the immodesty shows itself. Somerset Maugham once remarked that one looks at one's older writing with a contemptuous amusement. I couldn't agree more. Sometimes when I look at what I had written a couple of years ago
To Be Free is to have the ability to choose. But this does not bring with it the desire to choose. I prize freedom and want it,and feel compelled to use it. And yet, I know not what to do with it!
