What do you See?

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?

Yarns

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

The Depth of Brevity

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

Essence of Literature

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. This is the reason serious literature is seen with disdain. Let that be true, but a writer should not … Continue reading Essence of Literature

So, you write?

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?

Aggrieved

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

More than Storytelling

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

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

Windows

How many windows would you settle for in a house? Whether they are open or closed, will speak of the weather and prevailing mood Would it be too distracting for the neighbourhood when light escapes through them? Distracting the passersby, when their eyes wish to see the road ahead clearly Hope, a house with many windows do not become a mysterious legend Perspectives change too; … Continue reading Windows
