Because Tagore

And because he is right about writing. Always.

সত্য মূল্য না দিয়েই সাহিত্যে খ্যাতি করা চুরি
ভালো নয়, ভালো নয় , নকল সে শৌখিন মজদুরি।
Theft is getting fame in writing, without paying the true price for it.
It’s not good. It’s not good, this fashionable blue-collar-working-writer sham.
(my own plebeian translation, of course)
