“when a person really desires something,all the universe
conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”
– Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)
For the past one month, I was contemplating on what topic to choose as a subject for my Main Prose’s scholarly paper and FINALLY, I have decided or rather struck home on Paulo Coelho and his famous book The Alchemist.
As I was reading his biography in Wikipedia , I found that when he told his mom that he wanted to become a writer,his mom asked him “do you realize what it means to become a writer?” ; to give her a proper answer, Coelho did a research and found that a writer “always wears glasses and never combs his hair” and has a duty and an obligation never to be understood by his own generation,” among other things.He was sent to an asylum due to his obsession for writing.
Ha! now, think about that!! I certainly do wanna become a writer…and if you actually think about it….HELL!! looks like I AM born to be a writer!!(Let’s forget the bit about the spectacles,shall we?? 😉 ). HOW COOL IS THAT??!!! Whoa…wait a sec….thankfully,my parents won’t send me to an asylum (i think!! ).
