Let's assume that you have a brilliant idea for a film. You may think that the directors of movie~studios will catch your idea like a bag of gold. You're terribly mistaken. Your movie idea must incorporate a villain, a boy meets girl tension, a crime scene, etc. If your story does not have these elements, no movie studio will grant your idea. They will not even listen to what you have to say. They will not even let you cross their gates. This is the case all over the world. From Orson Welles to Martin Scorsese — the movie studios have historically limited creators from fledging their wings. They would not have financed even a film like "Citizen Kane". The financier of that film was unfamiliar with Hollywood, that's why he financed the story.
Netflix has upset all these equations. Because of Netflix, filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and others are now capable of fledging their wings. Maven is a media juggernaut. Maven is like Netflix. Because of Maven, we writers are now able to fledge our wings fully.
So what's stopping us from winning the Nobel Prize in Literature? ~Nobel Prize of Literature Committee is increasingly getting digital. They are getting more and more unorthodox in their choices. They have gone so far, that in 2016, they awarded the prize to a songwriter (instead of a prose writer or a poet): "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."

I think time is propitious for us hubbers in 2021. We somehow have to catch the attention of the Nobel Prize Committee towards the works that Maven (& HubPages) is doing. We don't have to tell them too much. They already know how rejective and restrictive the traditional book publishers are. They would love to award the members of a (fully) digital platform — because this is the future!
Please do some research before proposing your ideas. To win any of the Nobel prizes, candidates must be nominated by approved individuals or groups. None of these would even consider a pieces from a content farm like HubPages.
It's still a lovely thought. Keep your dreams going, Bro.
Bob Dylan is more than worthy, he has contributed greatly to mankind in an inspirational way. But yes, there are some questions, particularly in relation to the politicising of the Nobel Peace prize in general. Much Love.
I genuinely appreciate your enthusiasm, my man. And I get your point about Netflix - and it's what I like about it; that people other than the established film makers can get their work out there. Same reason I like the Internet in general; it can give voice to people who used to not have such an outlet - reaching people around the world quickly and in some ways making major changes in narratives and dialogues.
I see how you might connect Hubpages to that equation, in the sense that it gives a platform to people who otherwise would not have had it at one time, because they're not a "big name" and have limited resources and connections. I'm just not so sure it is at the level of a Nobel prize or if it would get the attention of the Nobel prize committee who, to be honest, gives prizes to questionable people anyway.
From where you get all these ideas from, Tanmoy. I am amazed by your ever flying thoughts.
Lovely Ideas (keep formatting)
Do you want to talk about poetry, or something else?
No, Tanmoy was just kidding. Seeing your brilliant ideas. Poetry maybe some other day.
What you are having already on forums is a nice idea. Keep it up !!
Blessings and Peace
I listen to an internet radio station (HBR1 Dream Factory). Listening to music like this makes us inventive!
While it is far-fetched but still it is a lovely dream and as writers and poets we have the perennial license to dream and create a utopian world of our own. Thanks for giving flight to your thoughts.

Brilliant Ideas here
Great research work, much appreciated
Do you know, The country with the most Nobel Prize winners in Literature is France
Did not know that. The French people have pioneering spirit, if I know correctly. Here is a Wikipedia article I found about the subject that you've mentioned:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_N … Literature
By the way, thank you again. And blessings.
Rabindranath Tagore, a Bengali if I am not wrong also won a Nobel prize in literature in 1913.
Iqbal and Tagore were simultaneously writing poetry in the sub-continent and if the level of poetry of both the masters is assessed dispassionately, Iqbal has an edge over Tagore. Both were mystics and they were heavily influenced by Persian mysticism of Fariduddin Attar, Jami, Hafiz, Sanai, Khaqani and the most sublime of all, the redoubtable Jalaluddin Rumi. Iqbal called Rumi, his ‘ruhani ustaad’ (spiritual master), whereas Tagore was influenced by Hafiz Shirazi.
Though comparisons are always odious, at times one has to compare to bring out the difference and put things in perspective. The first and foremost criterion for Nobel in literature has been the writer’s comprehensive work and its transcendental universalism. The message has to be germane to all ages. On this count, the message of Iqbal has more relevance and greater reach. If humanitarianism is the core of Tagorean poetry, Iqbal also doesn’t lack a universal vision. Agreed, the great Iqbal became a bit Islamic in the final phase of his life, it doesn’t take away his greatness.
I always have wondered why Iqbal who is known as Shair e mashriq never won a noble prize in his life , I got the reason here

There are two Muslim surnames that I find extremely interesting: "Khan", and "Ali". The Khans are particularly interesting. A Hindu (bollywood) actress married a Khan. Her name is Sharmila Tagore, and she's related to Rabindranath Tagore. Here is her son:
Shah Rukh Khan also married a Hindu woman. London's current mayor is also a Khan. Pakistan's current P.M. (very handsome) is also a Khan. I sometimes wonder, what makes the Khans so good?
Thanks for complimenting Imran Khan, he is a hero
It is used as surname and as caste as well,
Khan in general are Pakhtoons (Pashtun)
I like all the Khans of Bollywood
Wikipedia has an article about the keyword "Pashtuns": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pashtuns
Looks like Malala Yousafzai is also a Pashtun.
Yes Malala, was Pashtun, lived a hard life, faced a lot in her childhood, a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. Do you know, There's a documentary on Malala's life on primevideo amazon
Here's the link https://www.primevideo.com/detail/He-Na … UZIDS7ZMOO
Check out this One too https://malala.org/malalas-story

The left side of her face has been disfigured to an extent: https://twitter.com/Malala/status/1363561388531154945
She has some of the biggest names in the game as her friends now, like Apple (Tim Cook), Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Citi Banking Group, among many others.
She has a long life ahead. I wish her all the best. I've started to follow her on Twitter.
In many British schools in Europe, we have sections named as Malala (based on Malal Yousafzai)
"Pashtuns are the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan, constituting around 48% of the country's total population. They have been the dominant ethnolinguistic group in Afghanistan since the nation's founding. Additionally, Pashtuns are the second-largest ethnic group in Pakistan, forming 15% to 18% of the country's total population, and are considered one of the five major ethnolinguistic groups of the nation."
Pashtuns are a beautiful people. I will be learning more about them. There is still a lot to be learned. Thank you for enlightening me.
Pleasure, yes Pashtuns are beautiful, My mum is khan and my father Punjabi
Punjabis are brave, and they take the role of leaders in whatever field they choose to be in.
It's always nice to see world becoming a global village

I created 6 forum threads and discussions around the Nobel Prize in Literature. This is a thread to recap all of them. Let's face it: The Nobel Prize in Literature is given to writers.

I can't wait to read about how big of a joke the (Norwegian) Nobel Prize selecting committee is and that since nazi Germany loved Hitler and so many love Obama, it logically makes Obama Hitler.Can you people be proud for once that we have a great leader? He is not perfect, nobody is, but for god's...

Following the recent trend towards creativity and online writing, marketing etc, I was wondering, who knows if we had had the privilege and pleasure (that we seemingly didn't notice) of having hubbers among us who were Nobel Prize in Literature winners secretly? Do share if you are one. We'll keep...
