"A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people."

--Thomas Mann, 


Being a Senior Journalist, Activist, and Columnist Jatinder Pannu is the Editor of Nawan Zamana. Jatinder is currently a prime host with Prime Asia Television including ‘Prime Discussion’ along with Navjeet Singh and ‘Prime Focus’ with Gurpreet Sandhawalia.

  • Jatinder Pannu was born on 19 October in Village Sheikh, Tarn Taran Tehsil, Amritsar, Punjab.

Let's read out what it takes to be a writer :


To be a writer

smother your

racing thoughts

until they breakthrough

their breath

unable to be extinguished

by your doubting fear


to be a writer

is to stay awake

until the sun starts

breaking apart the darkness

at the edge

of the earth's seam

with a full-page

of words

tangled

that you won't be able to read

when you wake up

at noon


to be a writer

is to think

not only for yourself

but for every character

locked in your soul

trying to reach out

for their thoughts

and words

to stretch across

the lined

expanse


to be a writer

is to think

for everyone else

you know

and form thought bubbles

and backstories

for the strangers

you meet on the street


to be a writer

is to see the beautiful

in the ugly

whispering

and the ugly

in the beautiful

screaming
