when darkness feels so dear

you . .

runaway from the source of light


nested with evil thoughts

you . .

get to see your ensides




Book Review: a mirrored life

I happen to read A Mirrored Life by Rabisankar Bal as third book of this year. Given that I have the goal of reading just twelve books this year due to reasons of time management for other tasks – I am more than safe to pick the books that will not stuck me and let my goal be completed at the end of this year.


Whenever I don’t have the philosophical flow of words in my mind about any book, I try to be technical in the book review; pointing out the goods-and-bads of the book that might help the other readers to choose that book.


The book revolves around multiple characters including Rumi, Shams, Hussam, Sultan from an era & Ibne-e-batuta from some other. so actually I’m really confused about how the author unveiled the story (if you can call it a story). To me, its like some one has compiled a lot of events in a single story but failed to display the connection.


So the things that kicked out the book out of the list of my recommendations:


Repetitiveness. One thing I hate most in a book is the unnecessary addition of words and phrases. Explanations that could easily be avoided to keep the interest of story. By the end of the story, I was loathing the immense use of a repetitive phrase throughout the story, that is: let me tell you a story.


Another example of repetitiveness includes the same account of Ibn Arabi and Maulana Rumi being the icons of Sufism with different paths of love and knowledge, respectively. If I’m not wrong this fact was acknowledged thrice in the book when it can easily be replaced with some another.


& da lack of a story plot.


A mirrored life by Rabisankar Bal could have been much better if the author have tried to narrate it through a genuine plot. The random description of the main characters of story here and there disturbed me and due to that all I wanted to do was – finish the book as soon as possible.


but still there were couple of phrases that clicked me on the first glance.




The good thing about the book:
Here you go. There is one thing that I really liked about the book – It is fast paced and short.




Here and there

now and then


telling me

that I’m un growing

day by day . . .

they remember

da bloom and blossoms

of past days

And here I’m

recalling myself

of that phoenix

I read about in a book

who used to revel

en ets youngest days

then churning

night after after

like a hopeless

autumn leaf

and at last

burning en ets Own fire

Only to get a new birth

and live again

Da only thing es

after withering

night -after- night

day- by -day

I don’t want to get

a new life again

I just want this apocalypse

to be my end . . .


thankyou ammi!

Initially, I planned to publish this post on my birth day (the idea of thank-you note) but given that, today is international women day. I realized ett es something special. And I wanted to share my love and gratitude to someone who made me realize how beautiful creation is a woman. Thanks to my mom – ammi – who never let me feel that I am in any way lesser from my brother as a girl or any other boy out there in the society & who carved the best of my personality out of me.

This might sound simple but going through daily routine where I see even the most educated girls from my university behave in such an inferior way, who let themselves use/abuse with the so called principles and patterns of society. And where the women put ett like: Ett es Okay for a girl to bear the torture – just because in the end she is the one who is supposed to be the homemaker.


Things like that are painful and Things like that also makes me realize how much blessed I’m to have a lady in my life, who taught me the beautiful ways to live this life.

Who loved me enough to let me go and explore on my own and at the same time for being a backbone to me.

Thank you Ammi. For making me what I’m today! 🙂

Happy women day, everyone! ^.^

fifty shades of being an undergraduate

So I was supposed to make a research paper proposal, instead I came up with this:

Introduction: the individual who’s the student of undergraduate final year is supposed to make research paperroni proposal but facing the mind block issues. ‘mind block’ is a sibling of writers block and artist block but has more effects on an individual as its directly controls the mind.

find out a peaceful place.
the research doer should find a peaceful corner to relax and relax more. only this can fix the mind block problem. it will also be helpful to ponder upon the factors of why the mind isn’t supporting the individual with the current task at the time (in this case, proposal making, brainstorming).

find some ‘other’ activity: this other refers to anything other than the current task. research found that the more you try to focus on the demanded task, the more your mind will try to get away from it. the only possible solution is to divert mind somewhere else or something else. this would be a effective strategy to deal with the mind block problem.

Oh yes! it helps. get a blank sheet and write. write anything and everything. write whatever comes in your mind. this is the activity of that would help your mind to vent out the extra (or maybe worthy-extra as you may call it) material out of your mind that might be surrounding over the main channel of your mind and blocking the path for the current task.

Thank you.

Da cutest game

Ett was a rainy day since late morning and I had nothing good to do except surfing da internet and exploring my phone over again. That’s when I came across – sago mini friends – game application.

Sago mini friends is a game for little kids, as I realized while playing that worked on ets graphics very finely. From the activities in the game to the use of color combinations. ett seemed almost perfect. Even after being a person who is not into the games much (can say: not at all), I found myself playing it fondly.


characters giving expressions

Sago mini friends is a great choice for parents/people who want their little kids to get invested in something interesting yet educating; where they are able to learn something useful while they are holding their gadgets.

I really liked some specific acts portrayed in the game that could show manners to growing kids. like ringing the doorbell before going to your friend’s place and drying up the dishes after washing them. This game is the blend of work tasks and fun tasks; like planting, mending, playing, eating/drinking and other daily routine stuff. With the game characters designed by the creators in a unique perspective, they are surely worth the time and price for you.


Ode to Unknown

Hey, everyone!

I have not been writing for some time. Mostly poems but not long posts etc. this one, I wanted to write for a long time but couldn’t find da best words to express my gratitude.

As I expressed several times, I love well-organized websites/blogs (guess, everyone does). Everything from color combinations to da choice of da theme & da pictures or illustrations bloggers select.

Sometimes, even a writing piece which looks like ett es written well does not attract da way other blogs posts do, which quotes things and highlight stuff in a good manner.

When I started writing this blog I realized I need to combine my words with pictures, but given that I am no good with captures I got da help of internet like many others. Da pictures of those incredible artists, photographers, designers and random-special people. Whose work of art has become a source of beauty for our blogging community.

This post es an Ode to those amazing unknowns. ✨

a small effort to thank all those artistic and creative minds.

Thankyou – for filling da internet with such beauty and being a help to numerous people out there, including ME! 🙂
