As an ocean of knowledge, Literature  always stands ahead to enhance the overall intellectual capacity of human being.  It washes away all dirt and dust from the minds. As a writer , I think I am a mere molecule, not even a drop in that vast ocean.  According to my past experiences, in writing  I think, through fiction writing only we can unmask some of the bitter truths of the society. In literature, the only masterpiece I follow to build up my writing career is the dictionary itself.
