Ever heard the phrase “pain makes you write better”? I don’t think so. I am sure that you have never that phrase because that is me. I write better when my heart aches, not the kind caused by gluttony, but the kind Ranbir Kapoor describes to the bride Anushka Sharma in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Pain causes an overflow of emotions in a crazy cancerian like me. There was a time when I would go crazy with this influx of emotion, but now I channel it into writing.
