About Me

I am:

1) A recreational writer who enjoys occasionally dabbling with ink, though time, ability and energy constraints limit my capacity,

2) A conflicted, possibly lonely, soul with internal contradictions running deep into my very being,

3) A proud patriot with true intention to make a difference in the world,

4) A philosopher, in this case synonomous to the word 'thinker, something I believe anyone who does think and enjoys doing so can qualify,

5) Just another human being sharing this planet with nearly 7 billion others,

Not, of course, necessarily in that particular order. As for the rest, well, who honestly cares about the specifics? And who amongst you would dare to believe me if I did reveal all?

Well then, that all the more proves your competence as a writer! It's great what the little things can trigger, isn't it? I used to walk past (and notice) two small yellow flowers side by side along the pavement, the only flowers peeking out of the neat grass, every day while I walked to and from lessons, and every time they would renew my spirits for no reason other than just existing.

Most of my poetry is inspired by little things. Things that go on around me that spark those ideas in my head. The jumbled words of strangers as I walk down Bank street, a church with it's stained glass windows, or in this case, a tree with all it's leaves no where to be found. I haven't had anything all that bad happen in my life, so most of my poems aren't based on what I'm feeling. Though some are an exception.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review. I really, really appreciate it.

Isn't it? There was once a time when people learned for the sake of learning. Now, people learn to pass exams!

Ahh, yes, that makes much more sense. And no, I don't think it's just in India; it's basically a prerequisite to succeed at any sort of exam. I mean, I understand why it's necessary, but the way that education these days is so exam-focused is just utterly despicable. :

Thank you for your wonderful review of 'Close your eyes and read' ^_^ . By 'enslaving memory', I meant to convey that our memories are being trained at school to remember particular tidbits of information, whether we like them or not. That certainly is the case in India, though I know not about foreign lands :)
