**The Book Review**
"The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck"

'Introduction'
In an era where CEOs read 52 Books in 52 weeks, I finished this book within 3 months. Well the excuses say that this wasn't easy to break an habit of procrastination. But the truth is as follows:

"I read more than half of the book in the last week only."

This small realization clearly shows how easy it is to finish a book within one week.

'The Book Review'
The title may suggest you to be practical about life or be emotionless about some matters. But it's way more than that.

As they say, don't judge the book by it's cover, it has a lot to offer to a reader.

Even I personally believe that so many myths or misconcepti...

You will have dark days;
they will cling to you
in an attempt to smother your light.
Fight back.

“When you live without someone for as long as I have, love becomes this abstract concept, something you attach to a memory. And when memories are that old, they feel like dreams, and you wonder if any of it was real, or if your mind created it all.”

BOOK REVIEW-#1

LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA
                             -Gabriel García Márquez

Before I sing my praises for GGM , I have to say that the English translator, Edith Grossman has done some fine work .
This is the first novel of GGM that I have read and his work does match his  reputation.This novel however doesn't have much of magic realism for which he is most famous but it is a meditation and study on relationships.With words that may have been written not in ink but in honey,this novel explores love in all its facet.

On the surface it is a love triangle spread over a half century presumably in Columbia's Cartegna de India at around the late 19th and early 20th ...

Sat amongst the settled dust,
all the painful memories of us remain.
I have to fight the constant urge within me to settle too,
no longer wanting to be the person I once was with you.
My body aches,
I move,
I bleed,
a life from which I can never seem to escape.
Another piece of me,
another piece of us,
gets added to the settled dust.

I wondered why
i questioned, every word that ever came out in that direction.
I went back and forth between the meaningless conversations,
all the teasing and jokes and mocking interactions.
I read, i surfed, i searched, i looked!
I thought for hours and hours
and Blamed you, me , world, time, a bottle of beer , situation and god knows what!
only to clearly see, why?
why?
there's no answer.
simple. it is what it is.
my sanity fell down on the floor and scattered in million pieces.
the bulb of knowledge and wisdom broke!
the time took a hillarious turn
and I felt nothing but numb
though the million pieces are making their way back home.
causing damage and havoc!
wait till the blood run stale,

I've grown tired of this crusade of mine,
losing myself into pages and pages of books,
trying to find my story,
myself,
in them.

You are the kind of person that falls in love
with the moon and the stars, every single night,
as though you were seeing them for the first time.
You worship the sun because even on the darkest of days,
it still manages to shine so it’s no surprise that you always end up hurting like hell when love is involved.
You give 100 percent of yourself all of the time and yet no one has ever managed to match your level of love like the sky can.

‘When it comes to love, the sky never disappoints.’

Skylark Challenge 205

"Oh so quiet" you sigh,
But inside am drowning,
The voices of head and heart,
At odd with eachother,
Like the waves clashing,
Roaring,
Drenching,
Engulfing every bit of my being.
"Another bookworm" you remark,
But you don't realise,
The book am holding,
Is the cause of my inner turmoil,
And also the only path to my rescue,
For it showed me the mirror,
To all my hypocrisies,
How I've ingrained the very traits I dislike.
"Show me what you're reading..." you ask,
Yet I feel, your arms are reaching out for my life,
And like a drowning man holds onto a straw,
I clasped the book with all my strength,
Not wanting to part for even a second from it,
For only understanding it and...

       Summer vacation was all that mattered to her. This was her moments of freedom from school, the stress and drama at home, the bullies.
      So naturally, when the first day of vacation presented itself, she went out on her little adventure. She was walking through the river side, met a hermit who was meditating under a tree. She stood there for a while.
      After some moments, he opened eyes and smiled at her and asked " Hello little angel, why are you here? Do you have anything to say me? " She said politely "I am on summer vacation, I would like to ask you that why we human beings are suffering despite of all the comforts we have " He said calmly "we have every comforts. We can f...

The sun began to fade behind the horizon. Red, orange and yellow fill the sky overhead. The colors temporarily painting the pavement at the train station. On a bench sits an abandoned book. People passing by take a quick look at the cover as they rush by. The book hoped the dream of someone turning each page in awe of it's story within would soon come true. The fear of fading out of existence was creeping in as the book sat on the bench waiting, begging in silence for someone to pick it up.

Reading
transports you
to unique places
created by the imagination
that each one creates
with their own story,
with their own dreams.
Each book
is like a train
that leaves from a
station and does not
stop until the end of
its journey.  
Each one of us rewrites
the book he reads with
his own mark.
Each story is
a different journey,  
an uncertain path,
a new chapter
in a different
situation.
Sometimes
it all depends
on the eyes when you read it,
and in what kind of train you are
that the story finds us.

With books, books and books
And of course, a cuppa tea

I dreamt a dream
To travel through air ,trains n sea
Far away with my team
Of books, pen n cuppa tea

Butttttt... trrinn..trrinnn..triin
The alarm clock rang
breaking my dreams stack
Smiling at me, indicating
to come back to reality.

Always live your life to the fullest,
like it’s a never-ending parade.
Fill it with every kind of colour
and music that has you dancing
amongst strangers as though
they were lifelong friends.

Forgive me. It has been quite some time since I’ve wrote anything selfishly, all for me. I used to love writing in English class, but that was years and years ago.

Think of this as a diary for myself to the world. A reverse Anne Frank. That’s a terrible comparison, because she never thought her work would be seen. The pretentiousness.

All of these words and thoughts roll around in my head with nowhere to stop and nowhere to go. Perhaps they can stay here for only a moment.

My favourite author is currently Chuck Palahniuk. He has such a dark humour and he is quite the wordsmith. I could get lost in the worlds that he weaves, caught up in dialogue and descriptions. That reminds me, I need t...

Currently reading The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri as it was recommended to me by my sister. She read it for a class and she thought it was amazing. So I had to read it myself.

I 100% agree. It is an amazing book, well written, it feels very raw and submerged in culture. If you’re on the edge about this book or if you’re looking for a recommendation to check out, you need to read this book!  Either way, you won’t regret it. The author also got a Pulitzer Prize for her story collection Interpreter of Maladies. I’m looking forward to the ending and checking out her other stories as well.

Have you guys read it? What do you think about it? Would you recommend it to anyone? Is it a favorite? What...
