PC : @shainadaina
When midnight stucks, we find our vulnerable self sulking at same old stuff.
The people who left us, or may be forgot about us.
Our stupid mind, keep strumming those chords, of OLD TIMES.
and our eyes knows all our pain.
Heart, it can’t be seen by everyone. But eyes, ahh !!! By night crying, in morning all ready with mascara to Shine On !!
.
.
.
.
It was my birthday day before yesterday, and I still feel so SAD.
That one of my closest friend didn’t remember it !!!!!!
Its frustating, yaa he got married n got busy ??
Or may be the date just slipped by his mind ??
.
From others it doesn’t matter sometimes, but when people close too doesnt even remember, then we tend to ignore our birthday ourself too !!
And thats what I did πŸ™‚ It was just an ORDINARY DAY, like other 364 days πŸ™‚

Book Review – ARDH-SATYA

KnittedTales_n

Book : ARDH-SATYA The Half Truth & Other Stories

Author : Ananya Mukherjee
Paperback price : 243.00/-
Kindle (discounted price) : 191.69/-
Pages : 230

This was my first read by Author, and WHAT A BOOK. I am really impressed with the writing of author.

This book is bounded with 20 beautiful and some amazing stories, and divided in four parts :
-> The Equation
-> God Must be a Mother
-> Between Divine & Mortal
-> Life Positive

“In beginning, there were only a few words, then sentences. Then songs happened; then poetry. What remained of me became my story”

I have loved how author Ananya Mukherjee has expressed her stories in words blended beautifully. Since the very start, dedicating book to her parent, she had me captured. I knew it, it will be greatest of reads.

Being an Indian and knowing different places is what had worked for the Author. She has captured different states of country and their culture. In the book you can find, stories from all around the world and some are very much embedded with Indian culture from Mumbai, Kashmir, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Calcutta (Kolkata).

The biggest disadvantage of book compromising short stories is, all can’t be 100% your likeable. Same happened to me while reading Ardh-Satya. There are some stories, which I felt like was far too much stretched in the middle.

Also I read a lot of Indian authors, and I have NO SHAME in saying. Ananya’s writing style and language used is one of the finest I have read.
The author has a way of describing things like a simple sunrise

“I grew up watching the sun trickle its first rays through the round-headed glass windows with coloured motifs above the doorway on the porch, and sunshine slipping in through the large Venetian window at the East-end. It overlooked the blue mountain in the distance and the emerald green valley below.”

Didn’t those words just made a beautiful painting in your mind, of what the person feeling,viewing. And there are many such places, that author has done this beautifully.

I know, authors tend to do that. That’s why they are authors, but go and read other Indian authors and you will know what I am saying :3

Also what more I liked about the stories were they started off like a first person format. And we try to imagine its a man or woman, but after first page or few paragraphs it turns out Ouchh.!! the first person was someone else. I really liked that kind, and usually went backwards to see if I missed seeing it at the first time.

Ananya Mukherjee has included amazing words/poems at the starting of each parts and some of the stories, that blend amazingly with the parts/story.

My favorite part will always be God Must be a Mother, because that’s the part where all 4 stories are heart touching ❀

Book Review : Knitted Tales

KnittedTales_n.jpg

Book- Knitted Tales: A collection of emotions
Author- Rubina Ramesh

Format : e-book

It’s not just a book, its collection of short books/stories.
Each story deserve their own reviews/stars.
Some I simply loved, some were good, some were fine. ❀
Every story had a deep human emotion, and kept readers beautifully binded till the end of story.
Stories are not very short, not very long. They are just about the perfect size, to keep readers intrigued about what going to happen next.

It’s the debut book of blogger, book marketing and author Rubina Ramesh. And she has done amazing while weaving each story with correct amount of emotions.

The tittle of tales

A Secret in Their Closet
Betrayal
Chicklet
Forgive me
Lolita
No regrets
SuvarnaRekha
The Little Godmother
The Missing Staircase
The Other Woman
Daddy hear me out
Cliff notes

The book has 12 tales, and my favorites have been quite a few. The first one ‘A Secret in Their Closet’ gave me jitters, to what it’s about. and after it reveled I was all soaked in emotions..

My personal favorite is Cliff Notes, it’s so precious to see how mountains feel about humans. It’s from their perspective, and its Great one.
Others being, The Missing Staircase, The little Godmother .. ❀

She was someone’s dream and someone’s lust. She was someone’s passion and someone’s curse. Yet no one knew her nor did anyone dare to come near her.

– Lolita

Just tell him, Everest freed you.
He knows me…

– Cliff notes

“Where the heck is the staircase?” I shouted.’
….
“Why are you searching for it?” he asked, his voice hoarse, from lack of use perhaps.
“I need to sit on it and remember the innocent days of my life”

– The Missing Staircase

Lying and cheating is not good. I won’t recommend it to any housewife. But if there is a moment when I have to choose to lie to save my marriage and sanity, I will do it all over again.

– Ne Regrets

I Miss You (50 words)

Weekly Writing Challenge: Fifty


Image

I miss his talks, I miss his Smile..
I miss the walks, that we had for a while.
I miss his computer, I miss his seat..
I miss the way he sings without beat…
I miss his message, I miss our fight..
I miss him saying ,you are not Right..!!


50 words are not enough to express how badly I am missing one of my very good friend…. 😦

I read our old chats ‘AGAIN’..!!

Image

Well most of the time, it happens with me..
That at same time I am surrounded by many people at once..
And suddenly, there is no one around..

Not just once…twice..thrice… and it has happened to me 1000000th times may be..
Suddenly all the people I know, go..disappear..back off from me..
I don’t know the reason..

And so I very frequently go back…to the time, we were talking…chatting..having good time together..
All those moments are captured in the chats/pings/messages we exchanged…
All those times when I said you to sleep, and u said no..
All those times when I asked u , if u had your lunch/dinner.. and u said no..

All that we had is/was wonderful.. then where did it go suddenly..??
All that I said, was so true.. then why didn’t u got its meaning..??
All that I felt from u side was so pure.. then why didn’t we headed in the same direction..??

Why we are no more friends now..
Why don’t u call me now..
Why don’t u message me now..
Why don’t we chat now..
Why don’t I look forward for the day now,like I used to..

And the questions will be unanswered forever..

All I know now is, that people are meant to be lonely.. May be not today..just this moment, but someday..
I have been been with people and still feel alone for so long. That now, being with people means nothing to me I guess. But being alone surely HURTS a LOT..!!

Its hurts not to talk to someone u used to talk..
It hurts not to see them, like you used to..
It hurts that you are not center of there life anymore..

Because time change..
Circumstances change..
People change..
Fate change..
And moreover.. ‘Our TASTE Change’ …

And I just don’t like Changes..

I know people might like this post boring..or some might thing what a loser girl she is..
But believe me, I have been in this position now for a week.. Have written so much, still So much needs to be shared.
So thought of finally posting one of THE DAY’s of my life..
where I go back.. and read the CHATS with my friends…

Β 

Loneliness is a good feeling when it is created by Our self..

But it is the Worst feeling when it is gifted by others…
