A novelist, essayist, poet, painter.......

I was deep in thoughts about all the going around us....the bombay blasts, israel bombing lebanon, kashmir always at war.....

Always and always the weaker dying at hands of those having the power. Isn't it true that it is more of a sinful act of these cowardly ministers ruling our nation which calls itself democratic. Do I need to elaborate this uwritten truth????

Israel bombing Lebanon and it is more of a practice session and testing of their firepower over the weak "Lebanese" which dose include people from various other nationalities too: canadians, indians, sri lankans, thai and many others. India has put forth the biggest evacuation for their own people and so must have all the big nations. But who will save the innocent lebanese???? Where does UN stand when all these atrocites are happening?????

Talking of Lebanon always reminds me of Kahlil Gibran besides the Lebanese food. A novelist, essayist, poet, painter....his teachings may not be acceptable by everyone, not even me at all the times. But they are really compelling and fascinating. Two of the recent ones I read and liked are:

"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."

"But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love; let is rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."

Its raining in delhi......almost unbelievable

Finally the rains.....
Oh what a tormenting place delhi can be for a person returning from a place like guwahati after 4 years. The rain gods surely don't like the visits to delhi.

In guwahati it was like the black clouds following the rains, with the waterless white ones pouring their heart out even before the black ones had a chance to show their own capability. But Delhi, its the desert like sandstorms and thunder gods who rule.

Anyways I am enjoying the weather today after a long long time.......
