The Power of the Humble Pen and Paper.

The pen is still mightier than the keyboard.

I love the good old-fashioned pen and paper.

In the digital world, we have forgotten the inherent benefits of writing with an old-fashioned pen and paper. The benefits of digital tools cannot be ignored. But we cannot become slaves to technology.

I am a big kindle fan and cannot deny the ease with which books can be searched and downloaded. Even while reading on a Kindle, I have a pen and paper to take notes. Kindle has a feature that allows you to highlight and share to other apps and devices. But I prefer making notes with pen and paper.

I have a weakness for pens, and whenever I am in a stationery shop, I look for ball pens, fountain pens, and colour pens and buy at least a couple of them.
