Living yourself, only with your dreams can be a lonely strugglePressured into adopting an image, a character defined by societyPeople complain if masks when rarely they get an honest replyLove damaged by vagueness until all the layered disguises wear off Not in a lifetime, may be luckier if you probe deeperStrange, when eccentricities turn into a diabolical game While born, the soul begins its struggle … Continue reading The Struggle is Real
You cannot dictate my dreams, my commitment to imagine beyond this reality forced on me Fail! But you have not evolved to accept your failures, like each soul tormented at the defeat, yet, rising again to bludgeon my dreams It’s a dysfunctional spectacle, enough said, what grotesque power can transform those souls into My love for my dreams, the soul I want to surrender to … Continue reading Failure
Do you pull your eyelids over your eyes deliberately? If you are afraid of exposing your eyes to the truth for long, your mind may be influenced to narrate it. Is it pathological psychological conditioning of the consciousness that makes negativity and acrimonious sentiments alluring? It may be quite awkward walking through life with a mind always leaning towards a chronic perspective. Let’s not manipulate … Continue reading What do you See?
How the thoughts are arranged in the mind like different coloured yarns Segregated and placed according to their urgency To be woven after a long hiatus within; to be designed and interspersed with white spaces The sizzling sounds distract the mind, even the tongue feel the loss of words For a brief moment; it is impolite to be silent in the world where stories are … Continue reading Yarns
Do you buy the ticket to become an onlooker or evade the crowd to create an opening through the throng of chants and jeers? Even the tightly held crowd has little space for air and light to pass through. Now, why cannot ideas bypass them to delve right into the arena and sing the freedom song? Without nodding in a synchronous manner and following the … Continue reading The Onlookers
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
With less attention span, the culture of literature does not explore beyond a certain point. The seriousness of literature turns away many as it requires them to delve deeper and urges to forget the tightly held beliefs about the certainty that characters are supposed to possess.

Writing is never an easy journey. It’s a circuitous way towards a handful of words. Sometimes they are unknown in their nature, sometimes forceful, sometimes evocative, sometimes depressing, sometimes flattering, and sometimes argumentative. Even a tiring journey as this won’t assure the writer a peaceful way with words. Adroitly handling the diverse nature of emotions requires tact. The pen is only skillful only after the … Continue reading So, you write?
Of Horatian satire, the summons of common follies Transforming into something more sinister Shrill, and extremely adamantine desires; often lethal criticisms From the extravagantly erring spirits- torching those intellectual fodder Wit is misunderstood in times of anti-intellectualism Morality pranks- yes, that’s the idea of depreciating celebrations Too many citrus fruits borne by the laborious efforts of futility Aggrieved tongue; and even the jaundiced thoughts aren’t … Continue reading Aggrieved
There will be an attempt to drain the life of vital forces with all sorts of negative thoughts and actions that will disrupt the flow of life from time to time. Storytelling of the distorted types will inculcate aggressive thought processes, only to jeopardise the internal mechanism of perceiving life from a completely antithetical viewpoint. Gradually the lethargy sets in; to take control of the mind to influence and tutor it to decide on some inelegant actions … Continue reading More than Storytelling
