Weakening Perception

A thin perception of poetry has long been the cause of worry among poets. It takes a lot of labour to compose poetry. When poetry is presented, that is classically articulated, with poetic vocabulary (readers abhor the use of rich vocabulary, poetic language, the embellishments, and intricately written lines) because it makes poetry mysterious and difficult to interpret. This is the era of speed-reading, which … Continue reading Weakening Perception

The Metaphors Fail to Impress

When you fail to balance between the esoteric creative genius and create a metaphorical wall around your creations, a conflicting space emerges from the reflections. A mind is no doubt being spoken of so carelessly till now because it yields so many rich ideas which fail to resonate with the weak frequencies of life. Language is supposed to translate the most critical thoughts, but it … Continue reading The Metaphors Fail to Impress

Perception and Relevance

Literature is misunderstood more often because they are treated literally. There is that expectation to communicate with a direct narrative, without the metaphorical and imaginative inclusions. While we can say that literature does arise from the subtle observations about the unexpressed feelings of a society that is too busy suppressing them. Probably, the writer detaches from the unruly distractions and manipulations or even surrenders to … Continue reading Perception and Relevance

Comparing Criticisms

I do not know if criticisms work, whether it is ‘constructive criticism’ or ‘destructive criticism’. Criticisms are here to stay and even gets more sophisticatedly vicious. Ideally, criticism is necessary and must only come after much investigation and deliberation. There must be a reason and method to reach a point and build the premise for authentic criticism. Unfortunately, criticisms have been out of a mala … Continue reading Comparing Criticisms

Feelings About Poetry

Poetry is being written in large numbers, but scarcely discussed. I feel poetry is not read carefully, but literally. The flaws in the nature of reading a poetic piece turn into the general discourse that leaves the poet aside. The words are no doubt important, the essence of poetry is in the poet’s nature of artistic craft which transforms the words into important notes; just … Continue reading Feelings About Poetry

Till Creativity Finds Acceptance

As we believe there are limitless opportunities for creativity, we also cannot deny the stubborn gates locked by unbelievers and sceptics, who try to prevent its progress. If they are being festooned by ulterior motives, audacious promotions and boastful imagery can gain passage through the stubborn gates quite easily. With bizarre contradiction like these, we can rarely trace the narrow passages of hope and existence. … Continue reading Till Creativity Finds Acceptance

The Censure

We rarely discuss and frequently criticise! Even before one can reach a logical conclusion, the premature criticisms eclipse any further reasoning. The idea of censuring is more of an acquired consciousness from a traditional way of approaching a new idea, especially,  if it is a creative one. There is rarely any creative criticism, but a lot of rudimentary ways to counter them! Is it the … Continue reading The Censure

The Destiny of Writing

The destiny of writing is quite indiscernible! Stories may emerge from the author’s intimate imaginations, clandestine communications, and times of unsettling moments of the mind. They can stretch it from being extremely docile to a very provocative nature; the imagery can startle the eyes. It is with the eyes, most of the times, that a piece of writing is explored. It depends on the articulation! … Continue reading The Destiny of Writing

It is Literature

How well do you comprehend the ambiguity of literature? Often perceived to be fictional truth, an exaggerated manifestation of the conspiring emotions which trouble the mind, it goes further to etch out a path to understand the passive anxiety. Writing may simply be the urge to chronicle the daily experiences (both significant and insignificant) the daily communications of human aspirations, failures, struggles, heartbreak and pursuits. … Continue reading It is Literature

The Depth of Brevity

There can be melodrama in brevity too! Only if one is cognizant of the sensibilities of creativity. Lack of forward-thinking perspectives can make criticism a feeble effort to sabotage a piece of work. Creativity cannot be trifled and stifled with frivolousness! There always have been those voices screaming for attention with scant respect for creativity, and thus, making a diabolical review of it.  ~Amitav Continue reading The Depth of Brevity
