There is no denying the fact that writing is a universal panacea. It enjoys a great and unique status in the world of art. Writing has been a very keen interest of most of the people since the beginning.
To a lover, writing is a medium to praise the beauty; to a philosopher, writing is a mirror to reflect the power of wisdom; to a scholar, writing is a source to preach and to a fighter, it is a weapon to burn the fire of revolution in society. However, the importance of writing is always found at its summit.
Writing sometimes proves to be a true and loyal friend. When one has no source to express the feelings and share ones thoughts with, writing at that time works as a friend and listens to. Besides a source of giving a concrete shape to the abstract ideas, writing also works as a sword in unison.
There are various marvellous writers in history whose writing proved to be a source of inspiration and motivation of numberless faces. History witnesses that writing has been a key to unlock the locks of prosperity and a stroke on the chains of slavery. The amazing work of such writers caused independence and awareness of the masses. Whether it is the matter of the Renaissance in England or the freedom of the land of the pure people; whether it is Russia or the war of 1857; whether it is a problem with a single community or any serious religious matter, writers are always found playing their leading role to turn the tables of the foe with the help of their precious writings.
When the Muslims were found far away from standing against the evil, the writing of Shah Ismail Shaheed proved to be an asset to revolutionise the Muslim Ummah. When the young were found lazy and disappointed, Iqbals poetry burnt the fire of high aspirations in them. When the world was found in the grip of materialism, the names of Keats and Wordsworth appeared to be a source to identify and praise the beauty of nature.
Nevertheless, the significance of writing needs no evidence to prove it true to its salt. It itself speaks of its unique characteristics and artistic beauty.
