Poetic Design

It is difficult finding the rhythm if it is not a meditative journey. The words will come to you and you shall stare at them in annoyance. Those visitors, feeling unwelcomed will place themselves in the puzzle according to their liking. How often, the forced education does not allow the mind to be fluid enough to flow with the thoughts. The struggle and despair of … Continue reading Poetic Design

Crawling through Perceptions

Don’t crawl through distorted perceptions, for all, it may be a twisted, shape-shifting labyrinth, capable of squeezing out the life force mercilessly. From (un)truths are birthed numerous demons who gnaw the intellects. It is not a classical warning or some historical excerpt, but a reality of clarity to precisely read the characteristics of such perspectives. ~Amitav Continue reading Crawling through Perceptions

Rectifying the Social Discourse

While a lot of people are trying to interpret the social discourse, it is happening in a haphazard manner. The distortion of language limits the scope of communication, as we still believe it is a mere exchange of words. The intention to listen is lacking most of the time; acting as the ‘black hole’ where words are absorbed, without leaving a trace, or transformed beyond … Continue reading Rectifying the Social Discourse

Literature and Writing

Literature is not supposed to be devoured. To really appreciate the essence, one has to hold a book with care to listen to an unopened book; it’s the silent appreciation of the sentiment it radiates is the beginning of a long relationship with literature, a culture, characters, and a world of imaginations. Creativity just does not spill over in haste, it flows over eagerly, only … Continue reading Literature and Writing

Mundane Tragic Elements

While writing tragedies and eulogizing them with the intention of not only an artistic purpose but also to generate intense emotions, it becomes a habit of tragic-philosophical expression in a mundane language. While scrutinizing life there is a chance of missing out the subconscious darkness that casts a shadow on a piece of writing. Literature is about exploring all the elements of life, the positive and negative, and creating a balanced view through mature interpretations of life. To emphasize … Continue reading Mundane Tragic Elements

On Reflections

Deficient reflections aren’t handed over with any benevolent intentions They slump ignominiously immediately after passing through the faulty prism All the condemned mirrors multiply the confusion Starting a battle over misinterpreted and overlapped visions Virtuous ones observe in silence as the squabbles consume positive energy The philosophy of the psychological turmoil is distorted in every possible way As contemplations are misshapen by the rough surfaces … Continue reading On Reflections

Writer’s Perspective

Writing is not a task. It is much more than narrating from the peripheral consciousness or just being aware for the sake of flaunting the impressive array of words. A conscious individual’s relationship with the self and humanity! It is not just the culture, thoughts, and historical perspectives but also the subconscious world. This holds much more relevance than we attribute to other factors while interpreting and judging … Continue reading Writer’s Perspective

The Blinkers

Forked ideas pick on the brains at will, rather ferociously, as the ravenous ideologies desire to chew on them. Interesting times always; there is an evolution of narcissism, and its rapid proliferation has become sophisticated with the digital age. It travels swiftly across the globe, creating sensational ripples to unsettle subtle ideologies. There is the propensity to seek validation; be it one’s conviction about faltering thoughts or deep-rooted cynicism that is eager to find legitimacy. So, the best way is to … Continue reading The Blinkers
