Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore, some have heard and read about him some have not. Last week was his birthday. He was born in Calcutta on 7th May 1861 and died on 7th August 1941 in Calcutta. He was a Proud Indian He was a Writer, song composer, playwright, essayist, painter. And he received Novel Prize for ‘Gitanjali’ in the year 1913.

Honestly speaking on my blog today I won’t write what everyone knows or can read about him. This is my blog so today I will write what I truly feel, what I truly think about him.

I had read about him since my childhood. My Grandpa used to say one cannot finish reading his works during his/her whole lifetime. Of course he had written a lot. I somehow could feel whatever he might have felt during writing either a sad poetry or a love poem.

Many bengali people in India love him but some hate him. I remember, last year a renowned camera person from a renowned channel told me there’s no point in loving that man’s work because he got whatever he had because he was born in a rich family.

I didn’t respond him, I just smiled. Of course I could have argued with him because I have read him since my childhood. But I couldn’t make him understand what I exactly feel about Rabindranath Tagore.

If any artist is reading this then my question to you would be, have you seen Rabindranath Tagore’s old age photograph? If yes have you looked deep into his eyes? What do you see?

It is said that eyes of a human reflects everything about that person, I am not sure about others but about Rabindranath Tagore it was applicable. His emotions would be easily understandable from him eyes. I personally avoid looking in his eyes of his picture. Do you know what I see?

He might have recieved everything a man ever wants or wanted but his eyes says he was in agony, in deep pain which he couldn’t share with anyone. His eyes say he wanted peace. His eyes depict, only if he could turn over the time.

There are many portraits about him. Many people draw about him. I only sketched once about him because I can’t draw those eyes. I can’t draw that pain, that hurt. I can’t. I only sketched about him once in my lifetime but for me that was worse because I felt like thousands of knives were hitting me.

I have never seen him but I feel like as if I have known him since ages. May be it’s common.

Many “FAMOUS” people would say ,”Ah, that’s very normal”, if I share my true feelings about what I feel about Rabindranath Tagore. But my question is do you feel connected to him like I do? Do you feel like you have known him always like I do? Do you?

Honestly speaking he isn’t my favourite writer or poet or painter but still I love reading his works. This reminds me of one more incident in 2017 while I was working as a journalist, my senior asked me about one of the phrases of Rabindranath Tagore’s work “Ghore Baire”, a lady who sort of hated me commented, “How would she know about it? You asked the wrong person”, and she chuckled. My senior knowing me well then told her, “Why don’t you answer it then”, she didn’t have any answer to it. I simply completed the phrase and told him the other required details and left the room.

You know I didn’t feel victorious that day because she couldn’t answer it and I knew about it. I was extremely hurt because I can’t portray my feelings.

I know whoever reads it might feel it boring because for the very first time ever I have revealed this side of me but one thing I would say Rabindranath Tagore was really a great man. Not because I know it but because I feel it.

A quote by him, “Who are you, reader, reading my poems an hundred years hence? I cannot send you one single flower from this wealth of the spring, one single streak of gold from yonder clouds. Open your doors and look abroad. From your blossoming garden gather fragrant memories of the vanished flowers of an hundred years before. In the joy of your heart may you feel the living joy that sang one spring morning, sending its glad voice across an hundred years.”

That’s all for today.

Depression

It is a common word now a days. Someone is less depressed someone is badly depressed. Sometimes it is easy to understand that a person is in depression but sometimes it is not.

You might see a person daily waking up, behaving normally, smiling, working for the entire day and then having a sleepless night. It is because people who are deeply depressed but don’t want to share their issues decide not to open or can’t open up.

These people who can’t open up and are scattered from inside and are dying inside everyday.

There are 9 easy ways to detect if someone is depressed:

1) They behave unnatural. That is, they hide their feelings.

2) If you ask them how are their response would be ‘neither good,nor bad’ or something confusing.

3) They prefer to keep themselves extremely busy.

4) They get angry easily.

5) Their unnecessary risky behavior or decisions.

6) They are unable to think clearly

7) Unable to concentrate. Or unable to do things which they once loved to do.

8) They can’t sleep.

9) And lastly, They prefer to be left alone.

Depression can hamper your mental peace from inside. It kills you slowly and you start giving on. This sometimes may lead to suicide as well.

But yes this is not the end. People in depression can get rid of it by themselves. I personally would suggest 8 solutions that helped me to get out of a deep depression.

Yes, once upon a time I was also depressed. I started giving up slowly. I became suicidal I was tired of life. I was dying everyday. But one fine morning I told myself, “No, why the hell should I give up. This life is worth living for”, and then I did these things and I am doing great today.

1) Set a routine for yourself. I know it sounds tough but there’s nothing one can’t do. If you get accustomed in a routine, trust me you can overcome depression.

2) Set a Goal for yourself. When a person is in depression they may not feel like doing anything or even if they do they don’t do it wholeheartedly. So if you set a goal for yourself you can achieve it step by step. That’s what my friend is another step to overcome depression.

3) Exercise everyday. I know it might be tough of people who don’t prefer exercising but it helps. Join a gym. Work hard. You can feel depression leaving you along with your sweat.

4) You need to eat healthy food. I hated eating when I was depressed it caused me anroxia but once I forced myself to eat and that too healthy food, firstly I hated it but later on I must say it helped me.

5) You need to sleep. Having amnesia is different but when a person is badly depressed they have a sleepless night. You need to overcome it. It will be a a forcible step but you have to do it to recover from depression.

6) Negative thoughts will cross your mind by default,but force yourself to think positive. If you can’t on youtube there are many trances which you can listen which will help you.

A) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=txQ6t4yPIM0

B) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kxRRuM99yg0

C) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xWpdsx9WZq4

D) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0yMZ-04ud_Q

Try listening to these. They help a lot.

7) Travel, go out. Though you might not like it bit force yourself to do it. You will feel light. You will feel better

8) Lastly, read. Reading good books will help you alot.

People depression is worse. Try to get out of it for your own self or if you see someone with the problems I have stated above, help them to get out of it.

Let your pain go away and live a happy peaceful life.

Take care.

Butterfly

Today while I was sitting in my balcony and sipping my black coffee all of a sudden a butterfly flew inside and it sat on my shoulder.. I tried to catch it but it flew and sat on my broken right hand.

This time I didn’t do anything. After sometime a thought came to my mind that was, there is no comparison of a butterfly. It is a part of nature. And nothing can be more beautiful than nature.

Then what?

I started painting about them…

I hope you liked them. Feedbacks are always welcome…

💖❤

Art

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” by Thomas Merton.

Well this is not about others paintings but mine.

I don’t only write but paint as well..

I remember last year after my accident when I was bedridden it left me devastated. One and half months later when I could stand up I asked my mate to get me a canvas and colors. He never asked anything he just got me those.

I don’t know what came to my mind I created this.. 👇

This was the starting.

After that I have made many but never found a gallery to exhibit them and in this case my instagram account deserted_queen helped. People from all over the world appreciate my work.

Today I thought of writing this because I really feel glad when galleries in India rejected, they supported.

Today in this post I will add some of my works. I hope you all will like it.

This one I made when after accident I was tired of myself. So I named it ‘Tired’.

I made this from a selfie of mine which looked dull after I cried… So I named it, “Sorrow”.

I made it the day I got up from my wheelchair and started walking. I named it, “Freedom”.

So what do you think about them?

Let me know if you want to see more works of mine.

Today’s generation wants to go for go for business rather than waiting for job. Today in Interview Zone I have such a person with me who could have gone for a very better in his job but yet he wanted to step in the world of business. And now slowly he is reaching to the top with all his hard-work.

Mr Vedant Saxena, co-founder of online magazine ‘Intellectual Owl’ has given us his interview. Without further delay I would start the conversation.

Moni: Hello Mr Saxena, welcome to interview zone. So shall I start with my questions?

Vedant: Sure, Go ahead.

Moni: What triggered you with the idea of starting Intellectual Owl?

Vedant. I wanted to start something different. I wanted to give people a platform to write as no one gives amateur writers and bloggers a chance.

Moni: That is a great initiative. You were chef why did you change your platform?

Vedant: I can’t do 9-6 job.

Moni: So you write pretty well. Is there any inspiration behind that?

Vedant: I find inspiration from within. From people I meet and talk daily. And the tragedy and traumatic incidents in my life are like cherry on top.

Moni: Tragic and Traumatic. Would you like to share it with us?

Vedant: I don’t like to talk about my personal life. Let it be a locked book, where no one can take a look.

Moni: Do you have any writers that inspired you?

Vedant: John green is my all-time favorite.

Paulo Coelho – for motivation.

Nicholas sparks – for romance.

Charles BUKWOSKI – for poetry.

Moni: You told us that you had some tragedies so What did it change in you?

Vedant: I am more humane now. Mature and calm. I love helping people and motivate them. I had no one, when I was suffering, depressed and in problem. So, when I moved on from that period, I decided to help people going through the same phase. I’ve motivated and talked around 15 people out of suicide and suicidal thoughts.

And yes, it made me a better writer. It’s funny how artistic we become after getting shattered.

Moni: Very touching it was. Yes I agree with your last point as well. Umm well moving on to the next question, any favourite quotes you have?

Vedant: Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think I am not going to make it, but you laugh inside remembering all the times you’ve felt that way..

Legend – Charles BUKWOSKI.

Moni: That’s great. Well, You know that you are handsome and of course ladies hit on you. So anyone on your mind right now?

Vedant: Hahaha that’s generous of you to say that. No I don’t have anyone in mind right now.

Moni: Lol. OK moving on to the very last question. Vedant any words for the youth.

Vedant: We all have to die one day. So why not try to live, smile a little more, everyday.

Moni: That was very sweet of you. Thank you so much for your time Vedant, it was a pleasure and honour to interview you and get to know you and I know you will be inspiring anyone who comes across you.

Vedant: Pleasure was mine. Thank You.

So Readers, this was Mr Vedant Saxena. Enjoy reading his interview. See You soon.

Interview Zone: The Episode Author (Thriller)

textgram_1524652842

Episode is an application that has given many writers a field to write their stories and to direct it as well. Everyone can read, write and direct their stories with this application. You can also find your Genres and read the stories from there. It is very well categorized with its stories.

Today in Interview Zone I have writer/director E.Walker whose rose to fame with her first story CSI. She’s an American and she specializes in thriller stories though she is very young, she writes very well and she is the sweetest person I have ever spoken to. So without further delay I will post the interview with her.

Moni: Hello Miss Walker welcome to Interview Zone. So here I will go with my first question. You technically writer on thriller. Why so?

Walker: Well, I write so because I have so many ideas in my head about them and just keeping them there is horrible. I like to express my ideas and that’s why I began writing.

Moni: Interesting answer. Apart from episode where else do you write? Do you own a blog?

Walker: I do not write on anything but Episode. I am trying to get into Wattpad but I don’t know yet.

Moni: Which novelists do you admire?

Walker: I don’t really look up to any novelist.

Moni: Well, ummm, that’s pretty impressive. So apart from writing what do you do? What are your hobbies?

Walker: My hobbies are playing violin(nerdy but who cares) and I do sports such as soccer and track.

Moni: I don’t think it’s nerdy. I personally would like to learn violin someday. Reader’s love your stories, your work so have you ever thought of publishing your own novel?

Walker: I have thought about publishing a novel but I believe I’m too young as of right now. A friend and I are writing a story but it is nearly impossible that we will ever publish it.

Moni: Someday you will definitely. Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Walker: No actually. I always and still do want to be an FBI agent. That’s what inspired my first story CSI.

Moni: Okay, what are your upcoming works?

Walker: Some of my upcoming works are a winter break story with a terrible twist and a story about a new town being plagued with murders.

Moni: Final question (promise!): do you have any advice for the yet-to-be-published writers reading this?

Walker: Yes, it does not matter how many readers or views you get. But also don’t give up on your story. Make it advanced, don’t make it simple. Simple is boring. Thinking of new ideas, not ones from other authors. Be original.

Moni: That’s all for today Thank you so much Walker for this lovely interview.

Walker: You’re welcome dear.
