Essence Esoteric

Shadows aren’t soft today and more restless than the prancing winds There’s some strange aroma; some ancient magical spell could have escaped from the cracked phial Walk carefully, the steps seem wobbly and strewn glass can inflict deep pain Contradicting their nature, the voices sound heavier; some confusion and dizziness The air feels stifling and penetrates the being with an unusual message  Could it be … Continue reading Essence Esoteric

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

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 Catharsis

Writing is a cathartic process in the sense that one can clarify many unsolved, distressing, and agonizing situations in life with logical interpretations. The troubling incidents tie life in a knot, and writing can be the most purifying experience after dealing with persistent turmoil. It is not easy to resolve all needling issues at that very moment but as one regains balance to introspect, there … Continue reading Writer’s Catharsis

Intentions

Protecting yourself from inclement weather becomes an arduous task when you cannot help weave a strong social fabric. The feelings of being exposed to the harshness, deceit, and voyeuristic eyes unsettle the innocent soul. Eyes witness the social degradation as it crumbles helplessly. Dust of destruction settles deep within the lungs, thus choking the breathing and the freedom to inhale life. What remains are the remains of hostility; humanity fails every time they battle against each other. The image of self-destruction is a persistent nightmare in the history … Continue reading Intentions

Showing Empathy is Difficult

Is being empathic difficult in times of persuasive competition? We may be seeking to compete where there doesn’t exist one. Contradictory views perceived to be antagonistic is only looking at the partial paradigm of communication. We forget, that communication is to accentuate the ideas and also settle such trivial rivalries. When the distractions and images of (fierce) competition are seen only as a rivalry, it … Continue reading Showing Empathy is Difficult

Misused Words

Abusing those words when they are prepared for an unnecessary diatribe Under duress, they lose confidence and their meaning is lost in the commotion New meanings or insinuations are thrust upon them; attempt to armour the motives Incisive meanings have the ability to disable the honest attempt at communication Holler at the silent observers, create a scene and drama over a flimsy plot Dance like the … Continue reading Misused Words
