#while i’m away…

Once I’ve read that when little things make you happy, you can seek a paradise in yourself. Though I couldn’t map an exact context of the read, it had a great impact on me.  How couldn’t they…?

Writing a novel is more like a sailing a small boat in the middle of an ocean. Nobody would challenge you yet your free will entice you. It might be a passion, but more of the credit belongs to positivity. Although passion might make you row for several hours, a slight desperation for an invisible target would get you disappointed. Whether you find yourself as a Gulliver on the other side or not, It wouldn’t matter. A writer must always keep writing.  How couldn’t they…?

I have started my journey about a year ago, in a small boat with a strong arm. It is about the journey of a reporter and her boy in a chaotic world. While I am away, writing a piece of my novel, she called me after a long time. The character of which the ‘reporter’ is based on.., The brief moments of her talk made me realize that those little things weren’t just a coincidence.

And I took the liberty to compose the first Kindle edition on few of my short stories.

 

 

 

#how I found ‘Captains courageous’

We always feel lucky to see the part of the world that inspires us.

I must say that I am quite grateful to breathe and see the works of David Fincher. Maybe he has captured every situation of our lives.

I happened to rush down four stairs of our office building on the evening of July the 12th. As the memory pushed me to remember my forgotten charger, I have no chance but to climb the stairs. It took another half an hour as my boss insisted on listening to his brilliant idea. As I have an enough comfort to leave the building,

Poets would have described the evening as calm as still water until it went cats and dogs. It came to a halt only to show me that I had no money in my pockets. I walked to the nearest ATM and as it was a late evening, it consists of notes worth two thousand rupees. My eyes left the calm mood and began to find a way to get enough money for bus fare. It found the nearest bookstore midst the soaking weather,

“What do you want, brother..?” A young man asked, only after he removed his headset.

“Uh…That book” directed to the extreme left.

The shopkeeper gave a smile at the two thousand rupee note in my hand for a book worth about fifty rupees.

“You could’ve asked for a change,..” he said to me while I was leaving the store.

That is how I’ve got Rudyard Kipling’s Captain’s Courageous and the currency notes suitable for my bus fare…

Only If I haven’t forgotten the charger,

Only If the ATM had one more hundred currency left,

Only If I haven’t had an impression that no one would give me a change for two thousand rupee note,

Only If I haven’t been kind to offer thirty rupees to a beggar on the morning run,

I wouldn’t have got the book.

It is an exact replica of a scene from the 2008 movie named ‘The curious case of Benjamin Button’ directed by David Fincher.

The book isn’t the greatest read but the process is…

To think of various perceptions and get to know the importance of every moment…

I began to think that it might be how I’ve started to write quarterly stories.

#My curious case of life

It’s been a while I haven’t thought about what I did…

In brief, rejecting an offer of 3.5 CTC from a major IT company, I have joined a start-up on an average stipend. Being a mechanical engineering, I don’t see any interest to waste precious life for another two years to get a car and to be on a hunt for nothing. It is said that a 21-year old should take advice from elder people.

I honestly contradict it.

Often I saw many furious voices asking about what my plans were for the next ten years. After a few lectures, I realized that they have a most pathetic view on life. They have lived decades of life,  while sat before me with utmost pride of achievement and claim to have a pocket full of money, whatsoever with no integrity, waiting to enjoy at some point in their life, their innocence of belief on death as only comes at an old age perplexed me.

One of them has a bald head along with a bulging stomach, claims that he had two sons and that they are his achievements. One of them tried to convince me that I will be one percent successful if I follow the other way. And more interestingly, he said that they would be very happy if I succeed.

I have got an internship at a startup as a content writer. I was decided to make savings for a solo trip to Kerala.

#this is a good day to start…

So happened on the night of February, the 17th.

I find myself asking the same question for the past few days.

“Can I become a writer? ”

I hardly wrote a dozen articles and a story(to develop into a novel). The inertia of motion is always greater than any force thereafter. Comments on my life from others is never a concern. But emotions are the dangerous thing. I am always aware of what they can lead to.

Events that happened in my life triggered the possibilities. After 20 years of being a survivor on earth, I finally found that there is a life. Life before death as a virtue of joy. There happen to be a zillion possibilities to end a life but one possibility to lead a life. A life with no regrets. The perspective of people always mention differences in possibilities of life, but they all unite under one community.

The process of doing the work I respect may be the best religion found so far. Hitherto,  I decided to write as much as I intend to.

I may not find a suitable answer to my question. But I certainly can enjoy the journey awaiting ahead.

Curiosity as a quintessential thing..

curiosityFreedom is sort of thing seldom recognized in our century.It’s choice of a path that is chosen to lead to the destiny.Private education made it look like a dangerous thing.They are suppressing the basic element of human evolution.”Curiosity” Isn’t it ?.It is the main subdivision of freedom.On the account of early ages on earth,man would be afraid of  fire as it hurts him.It is his curiosity that gave us enough luxury to make a healthy lifestyle.Maybe we wouldn’t have known the law of universal gravity If newton finds himself hungry rather than amused on seeing a fallen apple.

Money is just a bargaining note of civilized culture.But it’s being influencing the people unnoticeably. A 21 years old human who became a billionaire was made as an example in the mind of young kids.Their prime motive is being diverted to that of money.Whenever expectations become superfluous, fear begins to conquer the minds and thereby causes the unnecessary disappointments.Every emotion in the world is unique,private and self-centred.They are to be inspired by their own motives rather than challenging the infected thoughts.

I saw some books named after “How to make friends within a day ?” “10 secret ways of success”..e.t.c     Is it really necessary to read them ?.

God created every single person on the earth with distinguishable features.They have potent to do something amid journey of their life.A wise man quoted : If death invites me,I shall not ask god for an another day.Life is full of possibilities with the freedom not opted as a choice but as a necessity .

04/12/2016

Positivity is not about bargaining some attitude to resolve problems in certain matters.Sometimes environment pushes  deep into the situations where the people annoys with their juvenile behavior.Ethics are certain theories which can help them to control their emotions.

Nowadays, age became a great hindrance for learning such ethics.An old man can’t tolerate being taught by a wise young boy.Life experienced by the old man constantly adapted to appreciate him.To make him believe that the world is as wise as he was.When the time which definitely shall arrive in the future,he mourns on being a fool at which time would be too late  to have a breath of fresh air on this earth.

 

A little uncertainty..

uncertainty

I have felt the threads embedded on the bottom of fila shoes when it leisurely trudging through the unfinished road which leads to our apartment.People around me who cursed the sun of it’s intense hot at that very afternoon was busy photographing the red bright sun creeping to the west. People say that every moment can be enjoyed.Neither can I deny nor accept such things.When I was seven years old, my dad used to say that failure is not a part of success but rather teaches a way to reach the destiny.He exemplifies by asking ” Which part do you prefer to shift between two rooms.Among one with complete darkness and the other with complete brightness ?”

He says that the easiest path lead by people hurts the most as they were afraid of failure that may tempt them in the future.I always remember him and his words like an engraved crystal which helps to mold all the problems in my life.But life is on uncertainty principle. A slight deviation from the present would vanish the dreams.

The Artists..

The Artists..

People are busy in their usual life who always irritate to the slightest imperfection.Art is the one thing that can visualize their inner thoughts.They can be of different forms such as a  painting or a novel or anything that can inspire them.Generally, reading a novel provokes a person to imagine his own characters.Such as, whenever it states as an”a haunted place”, Some may think of his own house, or his favorite fictitious Baskerville’s palace or any other thing that really scared him.The artist who wrote it rides with you in his story.A painting or a movie was rather a one man perceptive accomplished by using his own experiences in the form of art.

A selfless work of an artist can be considered as a masterpiece.They revere the work rather than amused by the fame acquired due to it.It holds him to the entire life not as a pride but as an inexplicable glue of satisfaction.Such artists deserve the appreciation that our heart could give at its best.
