Reluctant Waking Up

Why not relinquish the consciousness to the darkness, a burden, an unwilling heaviness amidst morning A sharp contradiction of brightness and dormant emotions, enjoying the gloomy moments Pushing back sleep, the healthy desires, the space to dream of beautiful moments, even if they cannot fructify Defying the odds of them revisiting me, again and again, I fail to shut the door on them, knowing they … Continue reading Reluctant Waking Up

Courageous Misdirection

The courageous conformity, voluminous misconceptions run after them, like a lasso trying to control the game Either everyone adheres or coerced into a twist where thoughts take a convoluted shape The audacious performances of fake seriousness, with a sophisticated script dramatically unfolded A misdirection, a vehement push to control the psyche; each and everyone through trained institutions Depreciated thoughts, usually they facilitate the mediocrity to … Continue reading Courageous Misdirection

Without Introspection

More than the inability to introspect, it is also the misapprehensions and misconceptions surrounding this experience that effectively keeps away an individual from initiating the experience. Yes, it is an experience, a sole journey of myriad experiences guided by the consciousness. There is a strong chance of being delusional at the onset of this journey because so many falsehoods already occupy the crevices of the … Continue reading Without Introspection

When Acquired Prematurely

How liberated the mind is, the thought never really arrives in a busy life Here, there, elsewhere; so many voices call, cajole, and contravene  As if anchored to the demands of the world that pushes the body all along Some mysterious meanderings coerce the mind to plan accordingly All against the free background, the contrasting pictures of this life emerges Languorous time confiscates freedom; as … Continue reading Think of the Mind


Curved thoughts strain the mind  Finding it difficult while negotiating a bend Unassailable spaces are confronted The absolute seems a distant reality Gesturing the heart to accompany at this hour Until the ambivalence is resolved Life’s dreams are under an obscure veil Earnestly waiting for that sunlight Till they awaken and puncture the bubble Wiping away the agony of dichotomy Finding the courage to straighten everything ~Amitav Continue reading Unbend

The Illustrations

The illustrations in the book were distorted Heavy graphite smudges reflected the darkness A mind that was not illumined with life Lines demarcated the field of comprehension Barren landscape where nature did not tread Stern looking faces demoralised the reader The pages felt heavy with prejudices An intellect without the nourishment of the Universe Deceptive narratives accompanied the illustrations Every character coerced to deliver verbal … Continue reading The Illustrations

A Mind and its Fate

When the mind leaps out of the head Following the alluring alleys of life Ecstatic, in a state of stupor, feels freedom A pseudo-world created with realities Grand designs, with glamorous appearance A perfect stage, to enact as scripted  Holding the hands of temptations, a surrender To the unknown plan to reach a cul-de-sac Till then the mind can run amok Leaving the inner world … Continue reading A Mind and its Fate
