Once Upon a Time


Once upon a time, everything was normal.
Startling arrival of Corona, life became abnormal.
Once upon a time, we used to chill.
Startling arrival of Corona, fast moving life came to stand still.
Everyone is expecting to get back to normal life.
“Life is not willing to get back to normal,” it seems.
Enough precaution required for everyday survival.
Corona virus is the latest and biggest rival.
Once upon a time, roaming here and there was habit.
“Quarantine” is the general concept, due to COVID.
Once upon a time, weekend enjoyment was at peak.
Sudden arrival of Corona, enjoyment is now weak.
Let’s hope for that “Once upon a time” to come soon.
We all are waiting for that noon…

Prior to Writing…


Weather is cool now so is the mind.
What to write is the question in mind.
Writing requires creativity and thoughts.
Providing the reader’s, a meaningful thought.
But what makes writers to write is unknown.
It requires efforts which they only own.
Writing is a virtual and pleasant world.
Powerful writing can change the world.
Writers are amazing and so does their literature.
Every piece provides readers, some creature.

Writing journey can kick anytime.
It depends on how and when one finds that time.
Imagination, thinking, creativity, editing and many more.
It needs all the hard work to create the pleasant world.
Good literary pieces touch the heart and the soul.
Leaving behind the memoirs which were foul.
Powerful write up provides a ray of hope for the depressed.
Rejuvenating them from where they were suppressed.

Writing is a unique art and can’t be stolen.
Those whoever tried have fallen.
Thinking beyond the normal life is required in writing.
Presenting the real and the unreal scenario for reading.
What readers read is the final version of the draft.
Writers must deep think to make the “craft”.
Duration from starting to publishing is not easy.
As it requires mind to be constantly busy.
Words doesn’t come many times, prior to writing.
Words doesn’t come many times, prior to writing…

Perception about writers…


Hello  to all my bloggers and writers and to all who are reading this post. There is a question which often comes in my mind that why people think writer’s are unconventional and not normal. Most of the times I have seen people commenting about the writers ability to write and convey their thoughts. Or better to say they simply conclude that “writers are mad”. 😦 Are we really ???

Being myself a writer I can feel this kind of thoughts coming from those group of people who are non-writers. The question is how and why they perceive like this? I think if I am able to write something apart from academics work , it is an extra talent which I posses. This perception can be easily observed and I think you might have felt the same at some point in life. It is a kind of startling perception.

writer

One reason can be they are jealous that how he/she is able to write while doing other task as well. 🙂 Those who write they only know how much effort and dedication is required in writing which include fiction, short stories, poems, articles etc. What to include and what not to include in the posr? Is the post can be related to those who are reading ? Also those criticize writers they forget that they too are reading something either in books, internet or newspapers, novels  etc which are also being composed by non other than writers itself. I have been also criticized by many like “Kya likhte rehta hai… koi kaam nahi hai kya? (What you are always writng… Don’t have any other work?) ” 

I tell you the reason why I write. I write because I love to do so and I hope most of the writers write because of the same. It is the passion which keeps on growing  which results into creation of new posts.  I have written a poem summarizing about why people write. You can read that poem titled Why do I write?  So whats your take on perception about writer’s? Share your views in the form of comments…
