A Story Away from Reality

When given the freedom to imagine, the most difficult choice is to bravely take that challenge of allowing the mind to experience such ideas that may be too powerful and transformative. It’s a fateful moment, while accepting or rejecting the hour that itself begins with the mind being placed at the mercy of an unknown situation; a hypothetical time can be as real in this … Continue reading A Story Away from Reality

The Structures

Everything seems to be a barrier; the decorated architectures were never meant to blend, but a way to differentiate the present from past. The resilient structures are intricately embellished to narrate inspiring stories. The architecture of any age reflected duality with candid confessions and cryptic hieroglyphics inspired by the culture of that Period. Tremendous respect for space allowed the free voices to echo genuine concerns. … Continue reading The Structures

The Beginning is Ambiguous

When exactly we start dealing with aspirations, without even realising the spelling of this word is a mystery; apart from that, the immaturity we have about its origin and exploits in context of society and ongoing communication. It isn’t everything about formal education but the conditioning of the mind from leaning ideologies with which we have surrounded ourselves with. Mostly we prefer leaning against the … Continue reading The Beginning is Ambiguous

For Literature 

Literature is never understood through chance reading or mere glances through the lines. As for a writer, his/her responsibility is to present a conscious and meaningful expression of dialogues from life to enable more minds to participate in the communication of thoughts.  Sensationalism with crass thoughts to titillate the mind for instant gratification does not reflect the true purpose of writing.  When readers mature and … Continue reading For Literature 

Monosyllables and Other Conversations

Leaving incoherent comments such as- ‘Indeed’, ‘Wow’, ‘Fabulous’, ‘I See’, or even going further to comment with various ‘Emojis’ (without a word before or after that) do not express any complete meaning and I have a serious inability in processing such frivolities or engaging with incomplete thoughts. I am no mind-reader, so those comments vanish into the world of oblivion as they do not add … Continue reading Monosyllables and Other Conversations

Drop of Ink

A drop of ink mirrors profound truth. ~Amitav Sometimes, the reflection is too intense for the naked eyes. Writer’s imagination inspires every drop to carry that passion and fuel the reader’s mind with thoughts. Words are the voice of a writer; presenting a collective and cohesive image. With the idea of sincere conversation with the reader, the writer takes risks to defy common perceptions and … Continue reading Drop of Ink

Criticism

Constructive criticism is an art. It is effectively articulated by knowledgeable minds after considering every aspect of a literary piece. Ignorant minds perceive criticism to be a diatribe borne out of jealousy or an unreasonable argument. Such views of criticism are ubiquitous, due to the popular and obsessive perception to interpret this effort from a myopic viewpoint. Mostly, criticism is regressive, an art not perfected, or usually … Continue reading Criticism

Writing and a Writer

Intense communication in solitude gives birth to good literature.  ~Amitav As a writer, it is easy to fall into the lure of ‘likeability’. Trying to endear oneself to every mind possible, is an attempt to reach out to more readers to create an atmosphere of bonhomie between a writer and reader. There’s nothing wrong with being polite and courteous to everyone, but one should not … Continue reading Writing and a Writer
