Mostly through a change of scene. Short or long time. For the quick fix, I take out my two-wheeler and go for a ride.
I have a particular playlist of instrumental songs that always triggers my mood and pen and then start writing. I also shift from writing on my Macbook to writing on actual pen and paper.
For the longer spells, I read, always. Getting lost into a new book brings in a crossfade of new visuals. Reading helps me in the long term. (less)

खारी आँखें

 मुझे ठंढ बहुत लगती है। बहुत। अभी बंगलोर में तापमान तेईस डिग्री है लेकिन हम हैं कि जैकेट पहन के बैठे हुए ख़ुद को कोस रहे हैं कि मोज़े धो देने चाहिए थे एक जोड़ी। पैर में बहुत ठंढ लगती है। हाथ में भी। टेबल पर एक कैंडिल जला ली है। कभी कभी उसपर हाथ सेंक लेते हैं। लैवेंडर कैंडिल है, काँच के जार में। तो हवा से बुझने का डर नहीं है। हाथ लौ के ऊपर रखने के बाद देखती हूँ कि हथेली से लैवेंडर की ख़ुशबू आने Read more of this blog post »

Teen Roz Ishq by Puja Upadhyay
"जिंदगी कहानी है और कहानियों में जिंदगी है,इसी बात को सही बनाती है,तीन रोज इश्क़। पढ़ के लगता है,उन मैं से काफी कहानिया आपने देखी है,अपने आस पास और कुछ आपकी अपनी ही है। कभी नहीं सोचा था कोई किताब इतनी भी प्यारी हो सकती है।

Must read"

“उसे मेरे खो जाने का डर था. इस इतनी बड़ी दुनिया में, जहाँ मेरे होने का कोई सबूत नहीं, उसे मेरे खो जाने का डर था. सिर्फ उसके डर से ऐसा लगा जैसे मेरा अचानक से कोई वजूद हो गया हो. मुकम्मल.”
Puja Upadhyay, Teen Roz Ishq

“उसके हाथों में वो सिगरेट जितनी खूबसूरत लगती थी, उसके होटों पर उससे कहीं ज्यादा कातिल. उसे सिगरेट पीते हुए देख कर यकीन पक्का हो जाता था कि स्मोकिंग किल्स.”
Puja Upadhyay, Teen Roz Ishq

“पहली बार व्हिस्की उठा कर होठों तक लायी थी तो वही वनगंध साँसों में भर गयी थी. जबां पर सिंगल माल्ट का पहला स्वाद पहली बार चूमने की तरह था, अतुलनीय. याद का दहकता जंगल मुझे अपने आगोश में भर रहा था, हौले हौले, शायद वो अपनी बाहें कस कर मुझे तोड़ डालता. यक़ीनन, मुझे अफ़सोस न होता. पैरों के पास कोई खुशबूदार बेल उग रही थी और महसूस हो रहा था कि हर छोटे सिप के साथ मैं दार्जलिंग का वही जंगल होती जा रही हूँ कि जिसके बादलों में भीगे तने पर कोई अजनबी अपने होठ रखने की हसरत लिए हर साल लौट आना चाहेगा. चाहने और लौट आने के बीच उलझा हुआ शामें सिंगल माल्ट में डुबो कर आग लगाता रहेगा.”
Puja Upadhyay, Teen Roz Ishq

“Toska - noun /ˈtō-skə/ - Russian word roughly translated as sadness, melancholia, lugubriousness.

"No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody of something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.”
Vladimir Nabokov

“A book is a physical object in a world of physical objects. It is a set of dead symbols. And then the right reader comes along, and the words—or rather the poetry behind the words, for the words themselves are mere symbols—spring to life, and we have a resurrection of the word.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.”
