The approach towards writing should be honest and writing should be done with a pure mind without thinking about fame or money.
An interesting plot, realistic characters (except in case of fantasy fiction) and smooth flow of words makes good writing. If good vocabulary is used, the writing turns great. (less)

When an absolute stranger reads my book and tells me how he/she was moved by my book, I feel that my life is worthwhile.
The next good thing about being a writer is that you don't fear solitude, instead you love it. You have so many characters in your head that you seldom feel lonely. The characters you create become your friends on the journey of writing.

The roaring thunder and the vigorous pouring of rain was enough to predict that it was a bizarre night. Rajeev has been working overtime that day. He reached the bus stop finally, when it was 9pm. The bus stop was secluded and instantly, Rajeev worried about getting a bus so that he can reach home.

“Some people are not meant to be a part of our lives forever. Some people visit our lives for a brief period, not to stay in it, but to show us something that we have been unable to see it ourselves. In the form of a gift, a lesson or a piece of wisdom, they change the course of our life and help us to fulfill our destiny.”
Purba Chakraborty, Shades Of Life

“Everything changes: situation, people, time, place and feelings too. There is no solution in complaining, but rather it is wise to accept the changes occurring around us and within us….When life keeps no other options for us, it’s better to move on.”
Purba Chakraborty, The Hidden Letters...

“A woman desires to be a man's last romance, her baby's first love and a person who can live with dignity all her life. As a girl matures to be a woman, her fairy tale imagination gets superseded by her struggle to be a good wife, a good mother and most importantly, a woman of virtue. As victor or vanquished, a woman keeps fighting the sequence of odds and evens throughout her life. Since nature had made women strong, society has very wisely done the reverse to maintain the balance.”
Purba Chakraborty, The Hidden Letters...

“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.”
Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds

“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”
Studs Terkel

“In love, no question is ever preposterous.”
Andre Brink, Before I Forget

“There is no secret to success except hard work and getting something indefinable which we call 'the breaks.”
Countee Cullen
