#SpecialFeature :: #GuestPost - Best way to learn is to write by Sunil Mishra

*** Special Feature - March 2018 ***

About the Book:

"Transit Lounge" is a contemporary book consisting of short incidents, observations and reflections while travelling to 30 countries across six different continents during the last 15 years. 

The book is a personal account of travels to places in Africa, South America, Asia, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.  

It was interesting to observe all these different cultures and people from an Indian perspective. The book is a compilation of small incidents and events during such travels; it includes losing an air ticket, dealing with difficult custom officials or getting mugged in a prime location in a foreign country.

One of the best way to learn is to write. 

Writing is probably the most creative process after reading. The author confines himself to the imaginary world of his creations with the characters of his or her making. It allows the person to slip into a cocoon and live in a different world during the writing process. The writing requires lot of reflection and this is when the learning from the events happen.

Each writing whether fiction or non-fiction needs to be backed by good amount of research. So each writer invariably reads a lot of books before he or she starts writing. That is also where the personal learning comes from.

For me writing of Transit Lounge has helped me to collate all the disparate piece of useful information and thread it in a logical sequence. I enjoyed writing it as it helped me re-live those moments all over again. Many authors I have spoken to candidly admit that they write for the joy of writing and possibly learning.
