When The Dreams Leave

While dreaming, I turn away from the earlier ones, feeling saturated and satiated with those experiences. Not that they have been fulfilling! Chances have been squandered for fear of alienating the others. There’s always a feeling of comparison that works against each other. I do not enjoy comparing their uniqueness, but the consciousness rushes in to group them and create an identity to place them … Continue reading When The Dreams Leave

Bernardine Evaristo

Controversies such as this are irresponsible. Who scripts such narratives, especially, while talking about the literary world and the achievements of writers/authors, poets have to be delved into further. It is not trivializing the accomplishments of an author, an individual, after all the recognition she has due to her work? Here I am talking about the latest fiasco, where BBC (The British Broadcasting Corporation) anchor … Continue reading Bernardine Evaristo

The Story of Stories

We look at a story, as a stranger does, after arriving at a new city; with curiosity and awe or instant dislike. It takes some time to absorb the essence of a new destination where the story originates from. An introvert’s narrative is mysterious and disguised in metaphorical embellishments. It is not the language barrier, but the inability to connect with the sentiment, history, and … Continue reading The Story of Stories

Unsure Days

Some days are just glances, others stay here to scrutinize Their temperament lasts a little longer- Moods sway between tranquillity and unsettled time Prompted by the duality of a day split into ‘either’ and ‘or’ Silently the oars cut through the little undulations On days like these, the mirrors are also confused The reflections are scattered and multiplied erroneously You never decide the colours on … Continue reading Unsure Days

Labyrinthine Journey

Writing seems to be ebullient even while narrating the continuum of depreciating existence. The type of energy writing survives on seems to be of an unearthly nature. As a writer, I feel, there is a narrow labyrinthine scope allowed for a piece of creative narrative to witness the other end of the deliberate maze. All that the maze is composed of are — criticisms, rejections, premature conjectures, … Continue reading Labyrinthine Journey

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

Stubborn Feelings

Studied stubbornness stands like a sentinel  Guarding the senses against venturing out  The pages that were forcibly torn out, strangulated Fists of fiends empower them for this task Frankenstein feelings claw the soul in a frenzy A desire to witness the pain and life being wrenched Oh! That knot consists of all possible evils The stubbornness stretches the skin so taut ~Amitav Continue reading Stubborn Feelings
