I can say I have evolved as a writer in the process. I understand that once you put your writings on a public domain whether on a blog or in a book, you wait to see how you have connected with the reader. I view feedback as an essential component when it comes to style or in the way I communicate, but not the thought process. Thanks Pankaj (less)

MILK TEETH by Amrita MahaleBOOK REVIEWMatunga the year is 1997, a muggy evening in late April. The milky clouds of the past weeks had curdled into thick cheese, blotting out the evening sun, raising hopes for a spell of unseasonal rain. The air felt slightly stale. Being outside was like taking an evening local train cramped up against a mouth breather. When I started reading Amrita Mahale’s... Read more of this blog post »

Darkness and Beyond by G S Subbu
“He made me realize that life was not all darkness and that it can be dispelled with the light of hope. I learned the value of faith and loyalty in the conduct of one’s life, for that was how he led his.”
G S Subbu
What better spiritual experience one can have!
Darkness and Beyond by G S Subbu
“In that slowly descending darkness as the moon ascended and a gentle breeze blew, I found myself enveloped in that stillness and a strange sort of bliss. I let lay the existential dilemmas somewhere within me for the moment and allowed myself to be immersed in that beyond. Next”

“When you have stripped yourself bare like the trees in the fall season you will be standing totally barren with nothing to hide”
GS. Subbu, I am just An Ordinary Man

“How can one ever write the story of one’s life when it has not ended? If he does, then it is an incomplete story. But isn’t it a paradox that one has to be alive to write one’s own story, a story which is never complete till he is dead”
GS. Subbu, I am just An Ordinary Man

“It is the impact that the poem had on my own thinking process and set the tone for the first and longest story in this book, ‘Autumn Leaves.’ Having seen around me the reality of aging and loneliness predominant, and the younger generation moving still further away and the older ones slowly learning to cope with being by themselves. This story traces the disintegration of families from what was once a joint one with a ruling patriarch and the other members strewn around not far away, to single units ultimately spread out in far and distant lands; the slow but perceptible shifting away in distance and relationships and acceptance of which as a reality was unalterable. The advancement in knowledge and the growth in opportunities away from home, contributing to a more independent individual learning to live life on his own terms, though desirable, has led to the splintering of families and in a sense an inevitable reality of being left alone as one aged.”
GS.Subbu, Autumn Leaves : Seasons of Life

“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”
Lewis Carroll

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“As you grow older you come to appreciate those little things and laugh at your own idiosyncrasies. It is when you are able to do this, you move towards a total acceptance of the person that you are and life becomes easier and comfortable. Your relationships become genuine, for you do not hide much.”
