About the author:
I am an established writer who has written articles in magazines, blogs, and various newsletters. I have an extensive experience of writing in diverse publications world wide. As a writer, I have had unique experiences over 20 years in my career. The first and the most fundamental experience has been that writing began to be recognized as an independent profession only with the onset of internet era. The internet has truly unleashed the dormant potential of writers with the adage 'content is king'. It has made me feel truly liberated because there are endless platforms to showcase your work and there are endless niches to write into. The second most profound experience has been that a writer must not only write but learn to sell their work.

I currently work for different clients and also write independently on different web platforms.

In the process of building my career, I have come to learn a valuable lesson. It is not for your personal satisfaction alone that you write, rather you write for others pretty much like any other professional who works for others. Your writing is only as good as others can empathize with it. The others empathize with your work only if it solves their problem or gives an insight into their problems. The others empathize with your work only when they get a feeling of dejavu or your work conforms to at least a part of their experience.

The second important lesson which I have endeavored to include in my narratives is the unique way of telling a story. There are hundreds of thousands of writings on pretty much every issue you can think of, but it is how unique is your story that sets you apart from the crowd.

Buddha Smiles
 

Authored by Ajit Kumar Jha

Siddhartha, the Buddha, radiating peace and bliss moves with his band of monks across length and breadth of Indicaland meeting commoners, die-hard criminals and monarchs on rampage, with his mission of peace. 'Now' and 'this moment' is the only truth on which he builds his thesis of peace. The greatest of logicians and the war-crazy monarchs get humbled by his crisp and sharp logic that adds to his presence. Men, women and children from the best and worst of backgrounds and professions are magnetically drawn to him as his words and physical presence powerfully transforms them. His monastery rises and falls but he persists in his mission-the first organized pacifist movement in the world. In course of his peace mission, he faces several challenges. There is a plot to humble him down in an open debate and banish him to the forest. There is plot to kill him. But he emerges unscathed through these challenges. In fact, the greatest challenge comes to him in the form of a royal concubine, who is persistently bent on meeting him and joining his monastery. The rules forbid women from joining the monastery. But ultimately she has her way. Siddhartha is touched by her devotion and courage. He has to change the rule and a royal concubine becomes the first woman to join his order.
