Note# 0: Haiku For Me

The sky over me is cast with specks of horizontal thin clouds in all directions emerging from a round blue sky over a hill, much like the sunrays of the blue sun. I find from quite some months, I have been observing the beauty of nature more subtly than earlier. What could be the reason. Yes, I started writing haiku few months back and it has changed my world of metaphors, free verse, prose intellectualism and imagery.

It could well be a healing tool. The mind wanderlust can stop right here because you can observe summer and winter solstice without being at equator or hear the chirp of migratory birds without being to any famous marshland or wetland reserve. All you need is to keep your words within the syllable count of minimum 17 syllables and pour your heart and mind in it. When you read out your outburst you can feel how much connected you are with the nature. The deviation in life due to complex worldly situation we learn through newspapers, t.v. or internet can suddenly go thin.

Though haiku cannot offer you any solution but surely it can make you understand what you love the most and cannot do without. May be it can serve you as the blue sun.

Nothing further let me escape a heron's silent walk across grass, fresh cut grass, water seeping beneath a bridge and ignoring the oblivion an honest urge to reach the waters first.

The lake as it is stood beautiful without a reflection of clouds or sky, bounded by sitting platform which one reminds of comfort and invigorating view. Otherwise undulating with one so serene, from the uppermost platform the eye travels from this shore to last filled with hues. The poem has to be born and "For No…

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…
