Book Review: An Ode to Life

Image
I am not a poem reader except when I come across something from a friend or social media. When Mr. Tajammul Kothari shared his collection of poems in a book ' An Ode to Life ', I was more than happy to read and share my experience with all. Poems might look like a simple way to convey the message, but as simple as the craft looks, it is really difficult to draft the emotions. An Ode to Life is collection of poem taking through a person's life from birth to death. It covers various emotions from being parents to ashes to also love and heartbreaks. The journey called life passes through various phases and the book talks about all those phases.  You feel connected with many of the poems in the book as every one of us have experienced that phase or seen someone going through it. The happiness of seeing your child or waiting for your loved one. The book also touches the various phase of our life which is less talked about - Death. A goodbye to life, reflecting over w

Don’t take it for GRANTED!

So many things in our life, we take it for granted till the time we realise how important it is. I came to this realisation when I took my health for granted and it hit me back at the wrong time. Result – I am missing the thing I love the most. So while sitting at home doing nothing and missing on big fun, I saw that so many of us do this. We take things for granted, we take people for granted, we take their emotions for granted and what not. In our journey called life, we have started talking it lightly and made it complicated. When we can’t solve these complications created by us, we think of ending it. I have heard of cases where people have taken their life for granted and ended it because of something or someone. A happy going guy suddenly jumps from his room on 11 th floor; a struggling actress ends her life by hanging herself. I try and try but fail to understand, how one can take their life for granted and decides to end it? Do they think of consequences, do they think

Yet Another Step..

Life is ever changing. Each day we think of taking new step ahead or we take back the step we took before. Each moment of life, we analysed, we get happy or we get sad, we relish or we regret. Every moment of our life is a step, whether it's taking up new job, joining a college, getting married or buying a house.. all this is a step taken ahead in your life. At the same time, there are few steps which we wish to take back. Divorce, Leaving a job, staying in a particular city and so on. It is said that life moves on, if one day is bad doesn't mean whole life is bad.. but when you are in dark all you see is darkness. If a person losses his/her job, they wont see this as an opportunity to do something else. If a person gets another job, he will think that it is a new step but that job might worth taking. Step towards happiness are memorable step in our life. All those happy moments.. falling in love, finding a friends, time spent with family.. all these steps brings a new s

So yet another blog on New Year. Quite late this time but atleast I Made it before the New year ends! This year was like a rollercoaster ride. There were happy and sad moments. As usual this year new adventure started with new job and new life. Never imagined that so much can happen in 1 year. 2012 started on bad note by losing one of my best friend. I still miss her on many occasions. May her soul rest in peace. This year was also year of no job satisfaction. Constant changes and peoples behaviour made it difficult to learn or grow. At the same time, this year was also full of trip. Short trip or long trip, every destination was amazing and full of memories. February month was filled with short trip to Alibag and again short trip to goa. Then in April, we cousins went to Mahabaleshwar. April was month of hometown, Rajasthan. Udaipur, City of Lakes welcomed us. June was for family and 50th Anniversary celebration of my Grand Father and Mother in Satara. After that comes the week

Stuck in the Moment!

Does it ever happens to you that you feel you are standing still when world around you is moving. Do you feel like staying in that moment forever. Or do you feel like getting out of the world where you are. Many a times it happen that being is a moment is momentary. Sometime it is like best part of your life and many a times you feel that there is no way out. When day goes bad, when you see others getting success, when you see others enjoying when you working your ass off and still not enjoying. No promotion, no salary hike, no new job, bad boss and so on makes you feel that you are stuck in an evolving universe and however you try you are not moving ahead. The world is progressing and you are still or going backwards. It not just feeling of professional life, this feelings can be there for personal life too. When you try to find someone, when you try to impress someone, when you want to be perfect child, list is endless and so does our feelings. But there are moment where we wan
