You will only know that the story you have been writing in your book of life is drab and meaningless only when you become trustworthy enough to glimpse a few pages of what others have written in their books. Then you will find heroes who have fought real world monsters, who have burn marks and and claw marks on their pages but still having beautiful and cheerful cover pages.
This is where I want to be,
Surrounded by countless stacks of books.
This is my home
And I belong here.

So you would pick up your menu today, reader, and skim through the items. Hotdogs, Mayo, Mustard, BLT, the one with the turkey bit and exotic sauces. At the end you would come across a new addition, a last minute hasty scribble in a small, sad little corner of the menu.
"MISPLACED. WE WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU WHAT THE INGREDIENTS ARE, BUT WE HAVE FORGOTTEN."
This is the one you choose. It comes quick, and at first glance you are - well - intimidated. The top and the bottom bread look nothing like each other. There is a stick of beef inside, cheese drips down from both the sides, and on top, there is a folded note. Letters from the Chef.
"So you are eating MISPLAC...
~° I try to remember the best thing you ever said to me.
Then my name echoes in my head,with your voice. °~
I read the book called "The Shallows" by Nicholas Carr and wondered if we can ever escape the shallows of social media again. Mr Carr predicted the governance of feelings, minds, emotions and even cultures through a cacophony of never ending disposable tweets and chats, inviting us all to perpetual reflex as a replacement for reflection. He suggested we would write less, but also think less, at the same time - and he predicted the shallows 5 years ago.
Our daily mental routine of 2017 sees a faster, shorter and infinite supply of the tedious and the superfluous. The sensational has replaced the substantial. Perhaps it's up to us, alone and even lonely, where the quiet mind must force i...
My favorite author is Paulo Coelho.
When I read his books, he talks to my inner self and this is what is says:
I am the "Warrior of the light " and I just have to find my own power like the "Brida" ,the God who is the "Alpha" will always help me to achieve anything in this world 🌎 and the "11 minutes" showed me that all I need to do is follow my heart and dreams.
And I am the "Alchemist" of my life!
A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference."
-- Eeyore (Winnie the Pooh)
#Favourite author challenge:
For me the world Cassandra Clare created is a quilt made of very differently coloured shimmering threads. A quilt that is very much like an invisibility cloak that I could use to escape from reality. Within the characters she made I found mirrors reflecting some elements of mine. Even when facing the life's challenges my heart would take a visit to the shadow world and bring a smile with it. That is why I love Cassie, cause she made many readers to find themselves within the pages and also put a smile on their faces.
Always retain the ability to walk away, without sentimentality, from a situation that felt unmanageable. That was a basic rule of survival. Don't lift a finger for a lost cause.
Stieg Larsson, The Girl Who Played with Fire
Ripping my heart out,
Digging holes in my soul
Grilling the organs
Slicing my skin open
And my eyes are wide open,
And my lips sealed tight.
I feel everything but pain.
I feel sick and restless.
And like the worst person of the world
I feel cold and ruthless.
Like i don't deserve my own trust.
And i wanna crawl away and hide in the darkness of my mind.
But the wounds are carved deep,
I couldn't walk, i couldn't sit.
And it still looks the same, outside
When they look, i fake a smile.
And may be i am same inside.
Its just mind games,
Taking all the blames.
Its the dusk of my life,
And the dawn of what's after.
Its an effup world,
Filled with hollow laughter....

Dear Rick Riordan,
Thank you for making me dream.
Thank you for taking me to those adventures with Percy, Annabeth , Carter and Sadie.
You made me believe in magic wands and Pegasus's.
You've taught me the vale of friendship and love,
Made me love the oceans and skies more,
You've given life to many more.
याद है एक दिन
मेरे मेज़ पे बैठे-बैठे
सिगरेट की डिब्बीयाँ पर तुमने
छोटे से एक पौधे का
एक स्केच बनाया था
उस पौधे पर फूल आया है
"I could sell my soul, just to wish you away..." I whispered, gasping. "But you'll always haunt my dreams- every single day and night."
The silence seemed to stretch for hours, before he replied.
"Yes, I would."

Dear J.K Rowling
Thanks for giving us the best series in the world and opening our minds to beautiful imagination.
Harry Potter series has been much more than just books for me,they were and still are my escape from reality,a world of my own where I feel free and myself. It's not just magic that is amazing,every character and the relationship they share is beautiful.
There are millions of books written on friendship,but this one stands out ,even after not being totally based on it. The friendship between the golden trio is my favorite part,there selfless love for each other and the feel of family maked me crave for such friends.
Harry Potter with his magical world has given me my bes...
I am not fascinated by the riches and luxuries of the world. My fascination includes books, characters in those books and Love between People.
