Writing is one of the skills that differentiates humans from other living things. Drawings in caves by early man also provide the evidence that writing has prevalent since long time.Pen has been in use in human kind before its inception in the form of quills (pen made from a bird's feather) or bamboo sticks (dip pens).

The most enjoyable moment for me is when I am used by a student, who has just graduated to senior class. Such a student will keep my different varieties in a geometry box. The sense of pride that comes on a student’s face while using me is so innocent. Students boast their seniority while jotting down the notes. And those pen marks and ink spots blotched on their school dress add glory to the gold.
These are the few contributions to mention that I (pen) have made to humankind but more such contributions are yet to come. So keep penning as you never know that you might end up with your name in history.
