  1. What they said regarding ‘inspiration’ is very true. Plato had once said that there is nothing as such called ‘creativity’, arguing that only God can ‘create’ and we can only recreate or imitate (mimesis). No work of art is original. Every piece draws inspiration from one source or the other and it is not a crime to get inspired unless you clearly know what it truly means apart from plagiarism. Literature, cinema, music, visual arts and all other forms of art forms can draw inspiration from one another without forgetting to add a signature touch of itself to it.
