Sometimes some things, events, places or people are just not worth of one's time or emotions, but still we keep thinking that one day it will all come to a good ending. But does Happily ever after exists in real life?
Asura :Tale of the vanquished is one the best book decisions, I made this early year. After a long time I thoroughly enjoyed reading every page of it, this tale evoked the urge of reading books after a long time which was into a sleepy state after reading some very horrible pieces. Quote- "The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the most eminent people of the past centuries." stands absolutely true for this classic piece of tale.
Writing of Anand Neelkantan manages to take up the most important tale of Indian Mythology -Ramayana & has narrated the same story from the other side- from Ravana's point of view. The best thing about the book that impressed me the most is that , the whole story was told in a way that it evoked the interest in a novice reader of mythology like me. The whole story is based on intelligent debate & explanation that will make you see Ravan's story with equal empathy & respect.
I am not going to post any spoilers in this post, but would recommend everyone to read this thought -provoking piece.
We all have goals in life and as soon as one finishes the other starts taking a place in our heart and mind, but the question is why few people achieve them & few dont, and the difference lies in determination & keeping the thrust of achieving the goal alive ,every single day.
All my goals need clarity & real attention this year. Crossing my fingers that I will make this year a productive one.
I am gasping for air and that too hard...There is a unknown feeling of loosing something may be vision or may be movement or may be not. The feeling of being in a race and at the very end point where you do not know are you going to win or not , some people screaming your name which does not reach your numb mind because you are high & at the same time in peace...yes I am gasping for air & that too hard..
So today is one such day where I dont know what to do, hope or not, jinx it by saying it or keep mum on the topic.Neither there are any butterflies in my stomach nor sadness in my mind I am just plain "Still" . I am jotting it down because tomorrow I wanna come back and see whether I am back to the point where I started or up to the next level, I was delaying this day for so long but today had to face it, just few hours may or may not change things.If it does or do not , I dont know how would I feel.
