Writing -An Awakening

Writing for a blog has unleashed a new spirit in me. And the spirit had taken me away to the library for the past week .I have been reading book after book about writing. Three books that I have on hand are A History of Writing by Albertine Gaur, the story of writing by Andrew Robinson and To Tell the Truth by Connie D. Griffin.

I am awestruck after reading these books. Honestly, I started writing just to echo out my thoughts, poems and feelings. Neither did I know down the road I would be so fascinated by writing that, I have started gathering information about the origins of writing to where it has reached now.

Seriously now I want to explore more about writing, for which I have been doing a lot of Reading. I now believe reading enhances writing skills. I myself can tell the difference when I read blogs, Newspapers, Articles, Magazines, Books. It has showed me different styles of writing.

What an awakening writing has been to me. There’s no second thought from now. I have taken writing more serious now. Will I get better .All I can tell is, I am going try and try and try to get better.

Boundaries or Barriers its all about Writing

I was walking to my work couple of days ago. I happened to pass by a tunnel it was 4:00 am in the morning ,As I set foot into the tunnel a moment of doldrums struck me .I started moving forward step by step each step i took i thought i could analyze my life and mysteries surrounding me.call it a moment of despair. couple of big strides and i was moving into darkness that’s when i went into a apprehensive state and gave myself a nudge saying to myself in life you might end up in situations like these most of the time. Then i remembered no matter what there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Halfway through the tunnel i reassured myself, if i can get through this tunnel and see light at the end of the tunnel i would always savor this moment to gain strength and courage in every aspects of my life. And i took pride in marching forwards by now i could throw away all the inhibiting thoughts that were hindering me. I was more focused on reaching the end of the tunnel .As i gazed at my watch at the end of the tunnel it was 4:22 AM. I made it through to the end .It might have taken me 22 minutes to reach the end.

Sometimes to become a good writer one should try to get the readers feel absorbed to what you present to them. Just write don’t worry about the outcomes of who follows your blog or who read it .Everything comes with practice, the more you write the better you get. Readers will follow if your work gets better and better. Is it just me or everyone who write ask themselves what kind of a writer they should become. Is it going to be that hard to write, what you think or what you for see. Honestly i don’t know the rules of writing. But i give my heart and soul when it comes to writing. I guess a writer has no boundaries or barriers.
Its just all about writing

Joy of writing

Writing is of interest to me always. My friends ask me how? All I tell them is. I just write there’s no full stop for my imagination. I put my pen on paper and it just flows, I don’t know how but trust me. Take a paper and pen and start writing and just see what happens, who knows you could be the next Dan Brown or J K Rowling. There might be a William Wordsworth in the hiding or there might be a Jane Austen in the making.

When I started writing for this blog.My friends asked me what do I get in writing and when do I write? I enjoy writing and the thought process of what i get out of writing is hard to explain. For in simple human terms I would say, It is like love you just feel it .I write on my commute in the bus.At times Before I go to sleep. Sometimes when I wake up .And at times whenever I feel like. There’s no special occasion to write so I
just add along a small rhyming poem that I wrote when I was writing this blog.

A writer's rhyme

Writing is my long term vision
For I am on the way of my mission.

Pen and Paper work in unison

I willnot stop for any reason
I willnot stop for any season

May be I wish if people ask me when do I not write?
I would say, may be you can tell me .If you keep following my blog.

waiting for the one-Just a repost

Every year that passes by,
I wait for the day to come.
I don't know when,
I don't know how,
Will I ever meet my future "One".

Every year that passes by,
I wait for the day to come.
I don't know where,
I don't know why,
I'll be the last to get the "One".

Every year that passed by,
I always thought "This is the one!"
But...I don't how and I don't know why,
It always turned out to be...NOT the "One"!
I wish I knew,
Oh...I wish I knew...

Wherever you are....Let me know if you're the "One".
So that, every year that passes by,
I will wait for the day to come,
Till I can finally get,
To meet....my truly "One"

Who says you need near death experience to change our lives around. Not everyone are lucky to get a second chance . There always will be another day. But will we get to see another day does not lie in our hands.

All we need to do ,to get hold of life is make every opportunity count.May be we get different choices but chances are you have the moment to make it count. All we need is a change in our Attitude. A change can be small or big. But a change that’s all.

we need to look at ourselves.Don’t look for inspiration elsewhere. Look at yourself in the mirror. Once in a while you need to turn back and see where you have reached and where you were. Moments like these help us restructure our lives .

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Famous quote by Mohandas Gandhi

My reasoning for a relationship.

Relationship,why does it end with ship?May be someone wanted it ironically compared to a ship.When a ship starts sailing from the harbour,every thing seems to be perfectly fine.Same can be said in a relationship and you fall head over heels in love, everything seems to be perfectly fine.

The ship enters the sea ,where everything changes .Same can be said about relationship.everything starts to change.Now that the ship has entered the sea.Someone has to take control but heres the deal the person who lets go of the ego gains the upperhand..heres where trouble starts in a relationship.sacrifices are necessary in the ship sailing smoothly.when one person lets go.and helps in directing the ship and the other taking control.the ship gains control.That was just the start..

Now that someone lets go..nature turns its forces to see who controls who and testing the ship..it influences its forces ..high tide..low tide...storms.big waves etc...likewise a relationship takes a beating due to natures test.its times like these how people guide their relationship through sadness,happiness,failures.success,etc.get to stand the test of time and change..a realtionship without compromises might not reach the destination and sinks .

hence i think it ends with ship..

Writing the journey within..

My morale was on an all-time low. I thought am I getting somewhere or am I just getting stuck in time. I had been intimidated by failures. Every time I took one step forward I had been pushed two steps back. Everything I tried to do, I always ended up on the losing side. All I wanted to do was share, how i felt about myself to someone. But i was ashamed to do so. What if i share it to someone? What would they think of me? When I just wanted to cry out loud saying. Why is life so unjust to me? And when all of this was happening. I started writing a Journal. And i found solitude in writing.

I wrote and wrote about what was happening to myself and i shared everything through writing. Writing has definitely made me ease up and has made me take note of my other side which I have been pushing aside for a while. It all started with a small poem I wrote about how I felt about myself. Since then I haven’t looked back. I always needed that extra push when doing something .one thing blogging and writing has helped me to gain is Self-Motivation.

It is not when, where, why or how you start .If you get around to start it, that by far is a stepping stone to moving forward I would say. I really enjoy writing; you don’t have to make any set rules or topics for writing. Just start and then see where you stop. As of now one thing, I am sure of is I don’t know when, where, why or how my journey started I am not looking forward to the destination. I am going to enjoy my Journey with writing.

All i see

Time just went by,everything seems to be a dream .
In a blink of a eye the most memorable day's of life
Have just vanished
Mind just wander's back to the past .
Memory forbid's eventually everything falls back to the present

All i see is
Lingering thoughts about the future.

Life seems to be a pendulum in a clock
Moving back and forth
Oscillating into the past ,present and future
Just reminding us to live in the present
I am a wandering soul ,for i remain.

All i see is
lingering thoughts about the future.

Thank you my dear dad

When i was a zero
Dad u rescued me
For your my superhero

You always ask me to dream
You tell me not cry and scream
For i am a big man now

Whenever i fall flat
you ask me to
Make a fresh start

You never gave me a choice
You always gave me a chance
To make my own choice

Dad hope i made you proud
And iam going to say this loud
Thank you for always being there for me...

dear oh dear..I wish mum was here.

Your love means no boundaries
You love me no matter how i am
I cant expect the world to be the same
I know you will still love me if i was lame

Ten months you took the pain
I know its hard what you have been through
You are so humble
Writing this i fumble

Mum you are the best
Forgive my writing i know
You won't think its worst

I always have looked upto you
And have always
Found a friend in you.

I miss you mom
love you.

IPOH -what you have to know ?

Life isn't about finding yourself.Life is about creating yourself.You know it took me a few minutes to realise,what if one cannot find themselves first what chances do they have in creating themselves.If we donot love ourselves.what chances do we have in creating the image that we love to create. All i think is .Is it all about happiness.Its not being happy all the time is it?

For you cannot be happy all the time.It means you have to be happy with what we have .Thats the hardest thing for we humans. we cant be happy with what we have. So what does it take to be happy?Happiness is big as the sun,you cannot go near the sun.So we need to learn to enjoy the warmth by learning to love what we have everyday.Onefine day i will be happy .how long will it take to reach that day depends on noone but us.most of the self help books you find make promises you can be happy all the time.

Time is what play's a major role in dwindling our happiness. Happiness can come to you in much lesser time as long as we learn to appreciate things around us.but you will have to go around doing things to acheive it.And start appreciating and thanking on our way .The idealogy of creating ourselves or cremating ourselves is a thin line .Nothing comes without a price.

To achieve happiness the sacrificie's ,the chance's and the choice's we take lead us one step closer In Pursuit Of Happiness.

Incase you are wondering its me trying to take you down to a trip back in time to your memory lane .IHM chennai it is a sanctuary of Nostalgic good old days for many of the Alumini of the Institute.

With dreams of making big in the Hospitality world we walked in through the doors. As we walked in through those corridors for the next three years ,neither did we know the value of time nor we wanted to.

The mystic journey of college life thus began.
when we say college life so many memories flood into our minds.

If you cant recollect your own memories....well wait for this column.

just a thought

smile is your beauty
girl why are you so pretty

where were you for so long
i dont know where you belong

you are so friendly
your smile so deadly

i will remember you dear
for i forgive you forever

all i want is a good nights sleep
for the night is so deep

i just twist and turn in my sleep
dreams so steep

my mind cant forget you ever
for until iam alive here.

A Ode To Newzealand

welcome to this land
we are called Newzealand
its a land full of flora
we are also called Aoteora

Its a land of many races
you might see so many faces
haka and hongi will welcome you here
you will enjoy your stay for sure


we are a race from evolution
its we humans who started this revolution

when it starts there's no information
you may never know its transformation

sometime its taken as a concession
where in there is lots of contamination

it starts as a depression
its end knows no destination

if you understand its not a illusion
if you dont its a delusion

some see it as a long term vision
at the end there is a solution

what are you
how did i fall for you

i knew it was not my thing

they call love is bliss
do you know what i miss

the feeling is so strange
in love you can push me of the edge

my heart feels its in a cage
in my dreams you are the only image

my memories just stand still
i enjoy this thrill

i need you
and that is my will

at times your breezy
at times your noisy
you are the wind

for you are the wind
your anger causes the storm
you dont follow any rules nor norm

at times your fast
at times your slow
you are the wind

for you are the wind
you are a battering soul
where things get lost as a whole

at times your gusty
at times your dusty
you are the wind

for you are the wind
thou shall blow
when the moon shall glow

hey wellington wind
thou shall blow
in your respect we bow

when you were near
i never had to fear

took us away
for iam farway

brought us near
for facebook is here

in life are forever
please dont forget me ever

the sun may shine
maybe it may rain
friends may we remain

gone are those days
in my dreams
memories just flow as streams

Do i beleive in the saying?
When life throws lemons at you make lemonade.well honestly lemons,from when did life start throwing lemons at us due to the recession and so called GDP(gross domestic product)growth. Life has changed its tactics too.Life doesnot throw lemons anymore instead anything and everything that it could get its hand on.

No matter what is being thrown upon us .what we tend to do varies upon every individual.what would i say when life threw lemons at me .Trust me i would grab it and throw it back saying i donot have time to make lemonade,instead why dont you throw lemonade in a bottle so i can just energise myself. honestly thats me.

So whatever is thrown at us we just move on . dont we? so theres a optimist in everyone of us.well so you heard me sometimes in life no matter what is being thrown. we have to move on by moving on, we tend to learn to master the outcome in doing so.we learn a lesson.That reminds me of Winston Churchills quote . A pessimist sees a difficulty in every oppurtunity and A optimist sees an oppurtunity in every difficulty.

The difference between the height of optimism and the height of pessimism is nowhere to be found but within us.The next time WLTL happens .oh I mean When Life Throws Lemons.I am going to make a milkshake.

born in the summer solice
at a roll of a dice
life took a turn real nice
destiny will just do its malice

lifes toll i couldnot elude
for years rolled in solitude.
loosing many things on the way
gainning lifes insight bye the way

feel like a nomad
walking down the road
the town so bright
the night up here so quiet

i had a strange feeling
for iam a human being
twilight was touching down
answers i should have known

you are who you think

caring is what a mother does
is all your feature
oh i ask you mother nature
there are so many creatures

destruction ,demolition you lead them to extinction
is there a purpose for all this action
as humans we regret with emotion
oceans,seas,rivers and streams
you demolish most of our dreams

your power so fierce
you cause so many fears
and finally you leave us in tears
oh mother nature...

by dinesh


earthquakes may test your will
i know its hard to stand still
mother nature may leave you in tears
people of christchurch have overcome their fears

for all this has to end
in your determination a message you send
christchurch will rise up
for the people put their heads up

A big salute to the people who never giveup
the nation gives you a big thumbs up
we never know what will happen tomorrow
people of christchurch
know how to overcome their sorrow

younger generation in christchurch are strong
for i can hear them say bring it on
in hope we move forward
from now on no turning backwards..

remembering the lost souls ..


you walked through the door
when i was on the floor
i love to say i like you
for iam afraid you may say no thank you

you swept me with your smile
time went slow as the snail
for i want to tell you dont miss me
in my dreams you just kiss me

i want to be frank
when you touch me i go blank
my mind says dont worry
i think lets not hurry

for i thought relationships end in pain
if i dont tell you everything ends in vain
if i miss you its your gain
i dont want to catch the last train

please excuse me iam sorry
i hope this is not the end of our story..

writing a poem for someone is new

enjoy this life dear
trust me you have no fear
i hope your dreams come true

life gives you no clue
donot regret for what you do
time moves on
change goes on

always have fun
happiness is big as the sun
for you may leave
in your memories we remain

to the person who rekindled my inspiration to write poems again.....


My thoughts are on the inside
For you are on the outside

On the horizon we go on a horseride
I know we can talk on the beachside

You walk with me on the roadside
At times you change side

In my life you are always beside
In my memories you reside

For you are the shadow
Always by my side
