Thought process is a peculiar phenomenon. One thinks something and his/ her mind repeats the same thing times and again. On many an occasions, something occurs to my mind and when I trace my memory I find that this I had already thought of earlier. It doesn’t end here only as what happens many a times is that some body somewhere else gave an expression to his thoughts, and the thoughts I am having now are just similar to that. The ethics applicable to bloggers provide that whatever they write should be just ‘unique’, but what I see in practical terms is that it is just not possible as because this amounts to an attempt to trespass the rules of Nature. Sometime back I wrote a post titled as Every thing we do is initially an imagination only, but only the other day while reading Bernard Shaw I found that more or less exactly the same idea was expressed by him in the following manner:
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.”
George Bernard Shaw has been my favourite writer right from my school days but I had never come across what he said on imagination like it is quoted above. Those who may not be aware of this fact may just develop a feeling that the very idea I did expatiate in my above mentioned article (link) is borrowed from Bernard Shaw, just contrary to what is not the fact at all. It’s for sure that almost every writer might be undergoing such a problem. My daughter once told me that one of my poems in Hindi quite resembled the one sung by Jagjit Singh. I went through my records and found that the poem so recited by him itself was written much later after I wrote my own. Such a coincidence is just very normal in every field even the ones much outside writings. Look wise every person differs from one another, and so are writings. They differ from person to person howsoever much be the similarity in expressions.
