  A request to fellow writers: Inscribe your book to me with one pithy piece of guidance. By Amitava Kumar It has been nearly 20 years since the night in a newspaper office in Delhi when I came.   He had a clear plastic bag with a cotton ball containing a few drops of holy oil. He carried a photocopy of pages from a liturgical book. At a.m., he slid open the door.

The book is a novel, actually comprised of three novellas. In the first a clergyman is called to the bedside of a dying man named Johannes and due to his unfamiliarity with the gospel, the clergyman is unable to offer Johannes any words of comfort. Words seem inadequate to express our sadness over ___. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead. We are deeply sorry to hear about the passing of ___. _ brought so many gifts to our life. We will never forget _. May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you now. Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow.

  A dying person’s world shrinks, narrowing to a few important relationships and the progress of his illness. When dying people aren’t allowed to talk about what’s happening to them, they become lonely, even amid loving, concerned people. They may feel isolated and abandoned, and in turn become resentful and angry.   While there are countless themes in books, a few are the most common. These universal themes are popular among authors and readers alike because they are experiences we can relate to. To give you some ideas on finding a book's theme, explore some of the most popular and discover examples of those themes in well-known writings.
