Falling for Darkness

images-1

I folded your darkness
In my arms
And named my
Blazing star yours.
How many times
Did i watch
My mornings sneak
Into your garden
But I can’t stay
And it feels alright
Because
The stories of our love
And not too little
They’ll hold your back
For tonight.

This is a translation of a song called Channa Mereya by Arijit Singh. I thought that it would be beautiful in this language and here is the outcome. Enjoy!

Happy new year, everyone. I hope this new year of possibilities brings you happiness ❤

In Vain

images-3It is hard to know sometimes

If all you’ve done is enough,

Enough to give reason to life.

And in those times

It all seems to be

One big ,vain expedition.

So I’ll live between

A sense of  distrust

And a feel of toxicity

Until life makes sense

And loving doesn’t  feel

Like murder.

– Saadia

A Sense of wrong

images-2“Tell me which piece of you
You love the most?” He asked
And A sound escaped her lips
The shadow of words
Which never were there
She knew it was wrong
She should have had an answer
But her lips quivered
And no words came
And a sense of wrong
Started to take a toll,
It was sad
That a girl  had grown up
Without seeing
the many facets of her own grace.

Merry Christmas everyone. 😊 Joy to all.

OCTOBER-NOVEMBER WRAP-UP

Up on my 2nd blog:

15258915_341792086191041_2097474612173471744_n.jpg

I’ve been gone for a while now. 2 months almost. Exams, internet bans and shutdowns can do that to a person. On the brighter side, I am here with an Oct-Nov wrap up. These months have been beyond great for reading and I got done with more books than I’d thought I would. Kudos!

My bookish Instagram: @ollivandersbooks . You won’t regret a visit.

Lets begin. (insert Voldemort voice)

OCTOBER:

  1. Romeo and Juliet,Shakespeare, the graphic novel: This illustrated edition of the play really brought out the magnificent vintage feel of the play. It was kind of short but really aesthetically pleasing.
  2. A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens: A miser and business man, Scrooge who calls Christmas ‘humbug’ is taught the essence of festivity and giving by the 3 spirits of Christmas. The harbinger of the spirits is Scrooge’s long dead business-partner Marley or rather Marley’s Ghost. A very enjoyable tale, one to remember after years.
  3. Malgudi Schooldays, R.K. Narayan: this book follows young Swaminathan as he ventures through school-life and tends to adopt methods that allow him to skip school. Though highly comical, there is a touch of emotion at the very end. this book can be considered the Indian version of ‘ Diary of a Wimpy Kid’
  4. Hemu, Amar Chitra Katha, comic: This comic tells the tale of a shrewd statesman who uses his cunning means to slowly rise to the place of a King. The son of a grocerer, Hemu designs himself a life he finds pleasure in, not a life of hardship but slowly finds himself to be doomed by his own ways.

Rendezvous with the past || A Gallery

Here I am after 3 months, annual exams, an internet ban and nights full of nightmares.

Mesmerizing, aren’t I?

All sarcasm aside, I have no excuses to fall back upon, just a whole lot of after-tornado like mayhem.

The Annual exams have reduced me to a state where i no longer recognize myself. A whole relaxation preparation went to waste as more things came up.

In the midst of everything else, my blog suffered the most and I am so mad at at myself when most of the damage was caused by non-availability of the internet and exams.(For those of you wondering, they go on for a month)

Now, I ain’t got much but an apology and some pictures from when we used to go on a bunch of road trips and I was 10 or something. DSC01193DSC01342
