The Complexities of Writing

The concept of ‘arriviste’ does not seem suitable for writing and literature. There is no escapism once one decides on this journey. All this hubris about “I know everything” and “I can rest comfortably on my previous work”, is nothing but an illusionary world that jolts the feeling of complacency. The writer’s humility and genuine fierceness to reflect upon the human fallibility, tribulations and prejudiced conflicts … Continue reading The Complexities of Writing

Siege

Push aside the crucible of woes before it fills the vessel, And overflows towards the sacred streets, where life exists piously; Away from the violent ways and bloody rage of delinquent outrage. When a simple fire is not used to prepare a meal but to burn down reason, Treason for every season, as there’s no time to till the land with kindness; Where food is … Continue reading Siege

The Knowing and Comprehending

Let’s say, “Do we really know ourselves?” Apart from our name, religion, beliefs, culture, educational degrees et al, can we really describe ourselves in as many words?

Cursed Ink

Do the words breathe or suffocate?

Unreasonable Reason

Our eloquent eulogies of greatness and legacies are given less importance compared to the vociferous support of mediocrity and dogmatic actions. While we all are more or less aware of the philosophies that have and continue to shape human existence, there is always a fierce battle to belittle those efforts. We cannot rise above selfishness, idiosyncrasies, and mass hysteria. Our monumental effort to seek freedom … Continue reading Unreasonable Reason

Pen Feels

The pen feels and yields to the gripping desires Heart consents after the inky darkness plead Notes unpraiseworthy wish to surrender The critical eyes singed the heart with infamy Claim to fame with blame, but shameless voices Truth painted controversially within a circle Of conceits and conceals of immoral disguises Stubborn pen dares to correct the profane courses Contemporaries aren’t pleased with stressed syllables Unworthy … Continue reading Pen Feels
