Srinagar, Mar 21: A young writer from summer capital Srinagar has written his maiden book titled ‘A war already lost’.
Abid Ali Mir (29), a resident of Pandrethan, Srinagar after pursuing graduation and diploma has been writing on different issues and has published his first book recently.
Abid while talking to news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) said that he has been interested in writing since childhood but after completing graduation started writing fully.
“A war already lost is a short fiction that is my first book and I am already working on my second book that is going to be published next year,” he said.
“At a time when many youths are inclined towards mobile addiction and lethargy, with little interest in literature, I keep writing so as to attract more and more towards literature and keep them away from drug addiction and other social issues.”
He encourages everyone to pursue their passions with determination and achieve success in their respective fields, creating their own history in the process.
He is grateful for his parents’ and wife’s love and support, which have shaped his journey with strength and resilience.
“My main motive behind publishing this work is to show people that writing is a way to empty your mind from stress and share the thoughts which we are usually unable to speak about,” he said, adding that lot of people usually find it difficult to share their problems with others and this stress eats them up from inside and writing it down can possibly help one to stress less and feel better.
A person should share his/her knowledge because if a person leaves this world, their knowledge will stay alive,” he said, adding that he strongly believes that culture defines a person and one should always entertain it’s culture no matter how low or high they are in life.
“My message to the youth of J&K will be that be strong in each and every situation and never let depression and other things decide your fate,” he said—(KNO)
