Creativity is birthed anywhere, within the four walls, in the wilderness, in solitude, in the midst of a crowd, and even in semi-conscious sleep. Now, there are so many destinations and myriad avenues for creativity and all we can come up with few words of lament and tired feelings, that too by isolating the heart and mind from all the wonderful places.

Merits, Demerits, and Excellence

The things that we like, choose and acquire maybe because we are not given any other choice. Do we choose? Or, compelled to choose- the direction of our choices is carefully crafted by the available resources at that moment. Every little moment bond to stretch the pathways of our choices. Most of the times, we adopt and adapt to technologies which we may not really … Continue reading Merits, Demerits, and Excellence

Poetic Nature and Reality

As a poet, it is difficult not to be inspired by nature. The tranquillity, rage, transformation, struggles, and persistent lessons are not only profound but also teach patience and keen observational skills.
