Book Review – An Absolute Remarkable Thing

A very fast paced, emotional, gripping and thought provoking story written by Hank Green, brother of John Green. Probably that was the reason I bought this book but I ended up becoming a fan.

This book is so densely crafted like there is a whole new city inside a dream. There are puzzles to solve in that city which are at various locations, one of them is under the tile of a restaurant and it is very important to solve those puzzles because the whole world is dependent on that. You will be compelled to get sucked inside the imagination of the writer plus there is a twist in the end. Maybe a sequel is coming.

Fame comes with a lot of responsibility, it has the power to mould humanity. Protagonist, April May constantly fights with her inner turmoil and fears to create a meaning in this world by giving purpose to herself and humanity. Her struggles, her journey is so deeply written that you will fall in love with her in the end. This work of fiction is perfectly mixed with strong emotions and you will come across some enlightening quotes as well. On of them is-

We are each individuals, but the far greater thing is what we are together, and if that isn’t protected or cherished, we are headed to a bad place.

It is a perfect work of fiction which is equally touching. Overall a remarkable debut by this author!

Paradise Song

In the world of Hatredness
Full of agony and restlessness
Sing me a song of Paradise

In this world of Cruelty
Where faith is not humanity
Sing me a song of Paradise

Where humanity creeps
In the valley of corrupt powers
Sing me a song of paradise

That song of love
That love Bathed in sacrifice
Sing me that song of Paradise !

In The North

The earth is burning,
The soil is dying,
Masses are tormented,
By the Flames
In the North.

The Sun
Showering embers,
The winds Blowing fire,
The Home is in peril,
Our home in the north.

Heaven we seek,
To the south ,
We Retreat
But the heart never blooms
Away From the north.

And then we see
The monsoons
From the heaven,
Quenched our Land
And our hearts
In the North.

Mother’s Day

Some people don’t believe in God and always question him. Most of us define God as the one who has created this universe , the one who has created us and try to find him. But we never realise our creator is around us, the one who make sure that we always smile, the one who sacrifice so much for us to make sure our lives become a perfect one. She is the one who has created us , our mothers.
My mother sacrificed her life for me, for her family. But still I see her in my dreams, alive and always inspiring me to move ahead in life by overcoming all the difficulties. I know she is watching me from heaven and guiding me in the right direction through one or the other way.
You can’t deny the fact that Mothers are epitome of sacrifice. Sometimes A son can go wrong but a mother is never wrong!
Hats off to all the mothers of the world. Make her feel special every day so that you don’t regret later!

Happy Mother’s day to all !

Divine Connection

The moons revolve around planets, the planets revolve around the sun, the sun revolves around the massive black hole in the centre of our galaxy and our galaxy revolves around other galaxies. Everything in the universe is connected , all depend on each other for their survival and continuosly look for reasons or insipirations from their surroundings to thrive. Maybe that’s how the life suppose to be, the continuous struggle to motivate and inspire yourself to be happy!

If you are breathing, you got to find some goal , otherwise there is no reason of all this. Sometimes it is tough to do that but it is the only way forward. You got to remember one thing in life that it is imperfect. All the negative elements- dejection , frustation, defeats, losses, apathy, sufferings do not last forever. Infact these experiences just increase the taste of happiness when you finally get it. In this way you can say that these negative experience have their own importance in life.

The best way to overcome negative experience in life is by connecting with the people around. Maybe they are the miracle you are looking for just like the sun for our planet. They can share your grief, can give you inspiration, can guide  you towards right direction. You believe it or not just the presence of others in bad times makes you feel comfortable.  Its like a magical charm that has given purpose to our universe, that has harmonized our  system.
