What should I write?


What should I write???
Nothing comes in my mind.
No idea and no creativity.
How can I be so lazy?
Thought of writing something real.
Ended up writing the unreal.
This happens several times.
But I really enjoy such times.

Writer’s are different from rest of the world.
They have the power to create and change the world.
Writing requires imagination and thinking.
Every literary piece is amazing.
Be it love, romance, sad or motivational.
Writer’s are a source of inspiration.
I too want to write something now.
By reading it, you can say waw.
I am willing to write.
What should I write?
Not able to think the exact plot.
Do I need to take a rest to create the new plot?
Thinking from morning to evening.
I am not able to write anything.
But I will write soon.
With a positive noon.
But…
For the present.
What should I write???
Nothing comes in my mind.

Book Review – An Ode to Life – Tajammul Kothari



Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Poetry is an art and when you pen down your emotions, feelings and experience with words which can be related to the readers, you become an artist. Writers write in different genre and each has its own style and taste. This blog post is about one of my blogger friend who gave me a chance to go through his debut book titled, “An Ode to Life” containing his collection of poems. My friend Tajammul Kothari is the author of this book and it takes me immense pleasure to write the review for his debut book. I would also like to express my apologies to him as I am writing this book review post after one half years of publication as I was quite involved with my studies and other aspects. Apologies for the same Tajammul. The writer is available at his blog titled Worldly Realization. Kindly visit his blog for his beautiful work.

For all poem lovers including me, this book, An Ode to Life is a gem and is a collection of poems that highlights the different stages in the journey of life. Life has many layers and this book contains several poems depicting different stages of life. The writer has even written a thank you poem titled “A Big Thank you” to all the readers which is a lovely read and I really liked this. The book contains beautiful literary pieces with simple words and in a lucid manner. I firmly believe the one who read will definitely find it worth. The book contains poems of various genres like inspirational, romantic, sad etc. The writer in depth can be seen from an extract of his poem ,“The Road” which says:

 A long winding road called life

In each and every turn there is a surprise

Bright paths to guide you aright or

Dark alleys that hinder your sight

The book also contains romantic poems. I became really impressed the way he has expressed love in one of his poem titled “Love is to Stay” which says:

You can pierce a dagger deep inside

And break this feeble heart of mine

You can kill me with your words unkind

But you can’t murder the love

The sentence “You can’t murder love” is more than enough to say what love is. This is amazing and you will find many such kind of poems with beautiful stanzas in his book and I am sure you will love it. Poetry has its own taste and this book is really worth to read.

The book is available at following:

I would like to congratulate him for getting his work published and also like to thank him for giving me an opportunity to go through his literary pieces and I hope he will continue to offer the readers with his beautiful work in future as well in the form of his writing.

Ignoring the beauty of life…


 

Looking at every aspect of life.
We do ignore the beauty of life.
During the midst of happy and sad.
We really become, sometimes mad.
Chasing the one which we don’t need.
Lands us in situation of greed.
Even the heart says it is wrong.
We indulge in doing the wrong.
Involving in the thorny path.
We ignore the present golden path.
Instead of finding the positive.
We do find negatives in positive.
Leaving the glorious beauty aside.
We move towards the unhealthy side.

One needs to have introspection.
Instead of indulging in conspiration.
Life has several layers to come.
Good or bad, we need to overcome.
During the sole honeymoon period.
We forget the struggle period.
One should learn from the mistakes of past.
Rather than blaming the past.
The mindset needs to be changed.
Then only we can bring a change.
Harsh reality still persists.
As…
Looking at every aspect of life.
We do ignore the beauty of life.
Ignore the beauty of life.

Walk forever


Weather is cool and the breeze is smooth.
Moving with you is always smooth.
Although hesitation of interaction is clear.
But how can I leave you my dear.
The expression coming from your eyes.
Allow me to go to your side.
Leaving the haunted memories forever.
Holding each others hand we will walk forever.

The first day interaction is still fresh and alive.
You said something which gave me reason to joy.
You talked and talked and I just listened.
The way we met, it just happened.
Your facial expression has something to offer.
Just wondering, is it my offer?
Leaving the rest and coming together.
Holding each others hand we will walk forever.

walk together

You have suffered and I have suffered.
Its time for each of us to offer.
The dark side will never be the same.
Together, we will ignite a new flame.
The joy on each of our face is clear.
You are my dear and I am your dear.
Situation never remains the same.
Nothing lasts forever.
Good or bad.
Happy or sad.
Either the pain is light or severe.
One thing is clear…
Holding each others hand we will walk forever.
we will walk forever.

इस दुनिया में |


इस दुनिया में हर रोज़,
लोग मिलते हैं अजीबो ग़रीब स्वाभाव के |
पल पल रंग बदलती ये दुनिया,
ना जाने कब अपनी करवट बदल ले |
पर क्यू कम ही मिलते हैं लोग, 
जो होते हैं मिलनसार व्यवहार के |

इस दुनिया में,
भीड़ तो है हर जगह |
हर तरफ लोगों का ताँता लगा रहता है |
सारा संसार भरा हुआ है, जगह खाली नही |
पर क्यूँ ऐसा होता है,
लोगों की भीड़ मे अपनापन खोजना परता है |

रघुपति राघव राजा राम |
लोग भूल गये करने अच्छे काम |
धर्म गया और कर्म गया |
ममता के लिए अब कोई मर्म न रहा |
इस दुनिया मे कभी कभी,
ऐसा भी होता है |
जो अपना होता है, वो ही दुश्मन बन जाता है |

इस दुनिया मे ही,
हमें जीना है |
सब कुछ यहीं करना है |
कभी हसना है तो कभी रोना है |
दूसरों को नही रुलाना है |
धूप और छाँव से खेलना है |
खुशियों को गले लगाना है |
दुखों को मिटाना है |
कभी संभलना है तो कभी संभालना है |
मानवता की सेवा करके,
मानवता को बचना है |
क्यूंकी…
इस दुनिया मे ही,
हमें जीना है |

…LIFE TEACHES US…


Life teaches us to be persistent.
Without losing patience.
That is why it always gives us a challenge.
So its our work to manage.

Good and bad memories comes.
Bad one should be dumped.
Some moments gives us pain.
Although we don’t want to be in vain.

life-has-no-ctrl-z

Hard times are difficult to carry.
We need to have strength to marry.
Having thorny moments aside.
We bleed from inside.
The moments either good or bad.
Will never remain always on our side.
It will go one day.
The other will come next day.
Life is a cycle of mixed moments.
One has to choose the moment.
The moment which makes joy.
The joy which will enable to fly.

Life teaches us to be self confident.
That is why it tries to break our confidence.
It depends on how we face the situation.
Despite of having too much tension.
It wants us to never give up.
So it tries to break our speed up.
Life has an expectation from us.
Turning unwanted to wanted.
Sad to happy moments.
Cry into smile.
Because…
Life wants us to enjoy.
Wants us to fly through the sky.

happy-life
