Write stuff

Javed Akhtar has hit the nail right on its head, when he has asked Mumbai University to produce scriptwriters (link may cease to work after some time). We have an chronic shortage of good writers (script writers as well as lyricists). Schooling in Hindi is going out of fashion and so situation can only get worse. Atleast in music, the gap is being filled by Pakistani singers and poets. But the stories and dialogues in the films are suffering due to the lack of decent script writers.


The situation needs to be addressed right away. Or outsource writing jobs to Pakistanis.


My earlier notes on this are here
