Literature is the distorted mirror of the society

  1. So, “Literature is the mirror of the society” is bullshit paddled by those who write such literature.
  2. How is the literature the mirror of the society when no litterateur has been doing any hard constructive work for the society?
  3. Who was a good doctor in the time of Mirza Ghalib? Who was a great architect in the day of Kalidas? Who made great shoes in time of Kabir?
  4. The literati have no ‘real’ jobs to sustain themselves. They have to depend on some sort of patronage. This must dictate their narrative.
  5. Fact is, the hard working people who build the society are forgotten in the ashes of times; only asshole rulers & ‘nikamme’ literati last
  6. So, “Literature is the mirror of the society” is bullshit paddled by those who write such literature.
