Ailing Fighter!

I turn the pages from the past,

Memories from which have still not run fast.

I write and edit,

And see how my own words misfit.

I wonder if ‘I’ really wrote that?

And rate it again for being it so tad.

And yet you call me a writer,

While all I deem myself is an ailing fighter!

Sometimes…

Sometimes all you need to do is

Stay back, and let it all pass.

To sit awhile, and let it all pass.

 

Sometimes all you need to do is

Let the blood drain away to your toes.

To let the air be sucked out till your ears.

 

Sometimes all you need to do is

To close your eyes, and not talk.

To just lie down and not walk.

 

Sometimes, all you need to do is

Let it all go,

To let it all be in the past.

 

Sometimes all you need to do is

Turn the page of the book.

To end the chapter.

To close the book.

To just forget everything.

And start afresh.

To let it all be and have faith.

To try and smile and have faith.

To simply believe and let it be.

Sometimes all you need to do is

Simply do nothing.

26 Short Stories, 7 days -Rajaraman R.

What I learnt by writing 26 short stories in 7 days:

The kick you need as an upcoming writer

-Rajaraman R.

Length: 37 pages

Mr. Rajaraman R has come up with this short yet exceptional book detailing his experiences and learnings while writing 26 short stories in a span of just 7 days.

He starts with his initial planning of taking up this challenge, and ends with sharing some writing tips for novice writers. The small book notes how he took up the challenge and how he himself grows as a writer, coming full circle from not being a confident writer, to being one.

The book portrays the possibilities and the impossibilities of being a fictional writer. Though he divides his time for writing doing the entire math, we realise that sometimes the tools aren’t just enough when it comes to writing.

Despite the hurdles the 26 stories were completed giving the writer a different perspective of himself. Mr. Raja not only learns about himself, but he also shares wonderful writing tips in the book, which he learnt in the process of writing these fictional stories.

He aspires to write more novels and short stories in the years to come, and we wish him all the best.

The book is on kindle unlimited and can also be bought on amazon at a very convenient price.

Marry someone who could be..

Marriage? Just how big a decision it is? Enormous, right? Who to marry? When to marry? Is the person right for you? And many more unanswered questions pop into one’s head when thinking about this earth-shaking resolution.

So me and my friend we were sitting in the food court of a mall, sipping coffee and discussing over this very subject. Well, even we could not conclude to any answer and ended up saying it is contingent to every individual. But he said something very deep, something that kept me smiling the entire day.

“You love reading books so marry someone who can be your book, whose pages are unending, whose words mean always something new to you. The book that imparts wisdom, makes you laugh, makes you cry, tells you the truth but also lies to you to make you smile, whose words make you wonder again and again, who is a puzzle, a mystery you love to solve, a book that has all the answers to your questions. A book that you want to read again and again. A book that may not be a bestseller but would surely be you’re ‘the only classic’. A book which after every read, you close it and stare at the cover smiling and you wish that it would happen all over again. So marry someone who could be your book.”

PS: The idea belongs to my friend’s philosophical mind but I took the liberty to exaggerate it.

So what are your thoughts on it? Do you agree? Would you have it any other way? Would you marry someone like this?
