"You can't edit a blank page", I was once told. You need to start writing something if you want to be a writer. You need not be harsh on yourself when you see your first draft. The rough sketch will hopefully sow the seeds for better things to come. I was thinking along these lines when I wrote 'A Blank Page'. I see that poem as the sand paper that will clear the rust and grime that has accumulated over the years.

Hi Arvindh,

Writing is a very ennobling experience. You can never know where it takes you. I liked the poem 'A Blank Page' very much.
