For those Who Feel You Should Be Doing Something Else!

I dread of one thing in life- the lack of creativity. If the significance of it’s existence is crucial, the parallel truth of the reality, the commitments, the 9-5 jobs, kids, marriage, college, assignments and many will chain you down to the ground. It will seem like forever to reach the goals you dream of.

But then, what comes for free and flows as effortlessly as a brimmed gloated river? Absolutely Nothing!

It Demands.

Yes, your passion, your dreams( whatever it might be or however insignificant you feel it to be) demands your time, your dedication, the urge for success like a thirsty man on a summer afternoon. Briskly and consistently looking out for a drop of life.

As much as the anxiety is promised, so is the necessity for the calmness to prevail.

It is nothing less than a meditation done over ages.

The sounds(rather the noises) around you are to be muted. The rummaging brain needs a beam. A single ray of light that can take you, enlighten you and carry you through the stifling journey.

I will warn you. It is not going to be easy.following dreams, passion, inspiration, motivation, follow your heart, author

Pursuing your dreams would account for a stigma in the well-settled society. It starts as a low whisper, a collective grumble and spread into a noisy shout from the cheap loudspeaker they use in political speeches.

“There will be no security”

“It is not worth risking your perfect life”

“Think about a stable future”

The grunt never diminishes unless you bow down and have your neck to their voices.

Yes, money is a funny thing. It is extremely significant at the same time insignificant! It will be like walking on a thin rope on a high building! But can you pursue your dreams while doing what you are doing!

Then yes, none can stop you from doing that unless it is you who is creating a barrier for yourself!

There are only a few mortals who listened to every heartbeat, there was just no choice. The dreams haunted them, never letting them to sigh and that is why my friends, many people despite the two-day jobs or the part-time work, they still made time for themselves! And a herd was born.

They have all writhed with time, fallen, quit at times, cursed, cried, screamed and at the last. Picked themselves up, squared their shoulders and got back into the game.

And that’s how games were created, that’s how rules were made. They sweated blood and tamed the lazy body to see a dream fulfill that only they could visualize. And after years and years of practice, commitment and sacrifices, they rose!

Now they here the applaud, revenge taken.

It was not easy! But it is never impossible.

Prove the time that you are not easy, you are not fragile. And see till the end of the journey!

And keep doing what you have to do until you can do what you want to do!

Atta Writer: Here are your Vows

Have I been touched by a hairy hand that denies my right to think? I sit here wallowing at my aims and my fingers hover over the keys on my keyboard, unlike every day a fortnight before. I have been on constant leave, for such an excruciatingly long time that I have no other option but to simply write, whatever I can, whatever allows me to get into the dark spooky tunnel and light the candle of creativity.

Atta writer, I am sure that every writer would have gone through the mean phase of loss of creativity and ideas. So here are a few pledges that every writer ought to take!

I AM A WRITER

Of Course, you need to be authoritative of the designation that you allow yourself to be crowned with. Take the possessions, scorn a little bit, be a bit strange. Who am I kidding, writers are strange? But most of all, you are a writer and you gotta believe in that funny thing.

THERE ARE NO RIVAL WRITERS

Stop comparing yourself to your rival writer, dead or alive who are helped by the night fairies to weave a better prose or poetry than you.

Because, well, rival writers are just a myth, brilliant works are a work of absolute immortality. Yours, could be, will be one of those, bloom on your own. Love your works, for all of them are a thing of beauty, a creation, YOUR creation.

ALL WRITERS EXPERIMENT: LOOK AT GOD

Look at nature, you find the most disproportionate animals and the perfect designs as well. GOD was freaking experimenting all along.

If he went through that excruciating pain of creating things, experimenting on them, having them instill their species on earth, look at the hippopotamus and the peacock. He loves them all. Love all your creations, it’s a learning curve to produce beautiful things.If you really hate one of your creations, it would be hard but you need to eliminate it if it is absolute nonsense. Remember dinosaurs!

WRITERS CREATE LIFE: Do It Right

Never write something just for the sake of it, it would be a catastrophe. Sit down, take your time, plan, replan, write, rewrite but stay connected to your little world that you are creating. You are awesome and hence fill life to each one of them.

If you are writing about a protagonist, never stop at . “Charles was a man in a black shirt” and leave it hanging there! No, not all readers love to have an image of a man with an unknown age, unknown taste, and strange smile walking around until the half of your story!

Instead

“Charles, clad in his favorite black shirt that read “ I hate People”, stood in the middle of the busy street, occasional rubbing away the dust from his spectacles that hid the fine wrinkles at the corner of his eyes. Being in the late thirties was not his favorite”

You get the idea, right, improvise the lines. Mine was the first draft, they will not be pretty, it’s the rule.

Drafts are never pretty, ACCEPT THE *@*%$*** REALITY!

WRITER’S LIFE IS MORE OF EDITING

The sooner you realize this point, the better you will rub your knees and stand up after a fall. Never submit anything before you check. There needs to be a check on every damn item on this list

  • Vanish all the red lines, error-free…do that and tick!
  • Read once aloud to make sense of your punctuations.
  • Read again for the improvisations in vocabulary.
  • The third time will be a fast read with a satisfied smile.

DON’T OVERTHINK

Never stop for more improvisations after the third fast read, you are never going to publish a single thing with that pace. Do it and hit the publish button and work on the next project.

Never brood over the success or the failure of a specific post.

Remember, you need to love your works, they are the kids born with your brain as their womb!

WRITERS NEED TO READ

That’s pretty much you really need to do! Read anything, read everything but never force or wait for the feeling. It’s more like disciplining yourself. You need to write like you need to BRUSH!…You need to write and you need to read!

Phew!

I needed to tell you this to get me on track!

Monday-The Day before Tuesday

The title is bound to bring a smile on your face, well the same smile urged me to write about it. Open your oxford dictionary and look into the meaning of Monday! It is the day before Tuesday and it is so funny as to how the dictionary defines it and how we define Monday to be, it is the cruel day after a relaxing relishing partying Sunday!

As always  I start my evening with an article in a newspaper or a page in a book, relishing each little nuggets of pure literature and some mind-twisting vocabulary, I obsess on them hence I rush to take a pencil to underline the words that went off my radar! My fear of such a little knowledge in something that I like is like a phantom always haunting me.

Monday, time

Enough of the bantering . But some philosophical twist to this day!

So Monday is a recurring phenomenon very much similar to other days and months and weeks. I contemplate on the interesting fact that as time ticks by, tides fall and nothing is actually constant, days pass, weeks pass but the day by which we refer it is constant. Monday can never be a Tuesday( I like this phrase) It’s constant.

Likewise Birth is continuous but birth is a constant, so is death, people die, but it is constant and inevitable. hence we live in a world so interrelated and interconnected, we often fail to recognize the irony’s graceful appearance. Such a placid representation of the mysterious mystic life we live in.

Some might say that it’s just grammar or vocabulary rules, but I think both constant and continuous are conjoined twins known to be on a perpetual journey that often dominated by each other’s presence for their different perspective.

The day  before Tuesday is going to come back as fast as it moves away, the beauty of recurrence is enthralling. I wish I knew them from their birth, their initial time; time zero. When everything started, the days, the weeks, the months, the years, the earth and the Universe.

Anyway, Sunday is about to end and your much dreaded Monday is seeking your presence. Brave up a smile, it’s just another day, show Monday what ignorance is, it’s time that it is shoved away from the exaggerated limelight.

Happy Monday:)

Points On How to deal with your Nightmares!

Nightmares are seldom present with our invocation but they still visit our peaceful dreams every once in a while.

It is not just as easy to ignore the fact that when we are jerked up with a nightmare, we always tend to be fragile and weak, for some, it might be casual in a general manner, for some more, they will be haunting in series every other night!

SO here are some tips that might help you to overcome the shivering fear:

Let’s take you through what you go through.

Imagine yourself deep asleep in your cozy bed with soft cushions and there is a calm peaceful countenance that fixes on your pretty face.

You are slowly getting into a deep slumber after a hard, busy day or even after a lazy one too. But somewhere along the mid-night, when every other creature on the world fades away into the silent envelope of the dark, you are running, afraid, falling, a dream that stresses you out.

You jerk up, you are sweating profusely, unable to breathe , unable to connect to your surroundings.

Trust me, even a brave heart suffers under these attacks.Dreams basically occur during your rapid eye motion that helps your brains to run a movie in your head! Some are pretty, heart-warming and few more hell!

nightmare and to-do

Things You Must Do:

1.Switch ON the light

Yes that is what you must do, switch that light on, connect to your surroundings, calm yourself convincing of it being just a dream.

The light speaks the truth, shows you the deepest corners and assures you of your safety, your brain needs to feel secure around this time

2.Go for the water

Always make sure that you keep a glass of water by your bed-side before going to bed, it helps you to quench the sudden thirst and your parched throat gets a treatment of cool water that calms your mind.

The other amazing thing that water does is to improvise your blood circulation to your brain cells, the nervous system gets activated and differentiates well between the dream and the reality and assures of the safe place

3.Switch on the FAN

Remember, you’ll still be sweating, hence give the fan some work , if it is switched on then increase the speed of the motor!

With this, the breeze from the fan enters the spaces amidst your sweaty head and soothes the temperature rise that you experienced.

4.Divert your attention to belief and trust

At times like these Belief and trust works wonders, if you believe in god ,then it’s time to put your entire trust in him and chant a few mantras or recite a few slokas too. I do it at times!

For other people, to divert from the nightmare, take out a good book from the shelf, something that you have always wanted to read, also make sure that the book should not put you under stress, so no assignments and exam preparation! Just a few proverbs or motivating books would do.

Then for music lovers

Not the usual music that tears your eardrum but a music that is melodious and has a lullaby effect would help you out.

Survive on positive thoughts

Though you are forced awake from sleep due to a bad dream, you should always concentrate on positive thoughts; remember your thoughts are powerful enough to become real.

“Everything exists twice, once in your thoughts and once in reality”

Your thoughts and feelings are a force that exists in nature, make sure that you use them to create a beautiful future, now make the flow of your thoughts into a beautiful dream; you are almost about to dozz off now.

Go to sleep!

For Recurring nightmares

These are the people with amazing creative power, yes it is not a wretched dream but hides in itself your potential that is buried because of your untimely unnecessary stress.

So figure out: If your dreams are recurring in a cycle, then remember the details and try to connect it with your reality, are you worried about certain event, by certain person? Then unless you figure it out and solve, you tend to suffer.

If this is not working and nightmares are more common that you never get to dozz of into a peaceful sleep, then it’s time for the psychiatrist to intervene.

And it’s not a bad thing to visit a psychiatrist, we all have issues and the sooner it gets treated, the sooner we can live a better life, so ignore not the point in any time of your life!

It’s no big deal

Having nightmares is no big deal, everybody gets it and you get it too, so chill and follow the steps above, if you want add in a stroll and a shower ,you are more than welcome…Nobody will be able to stop you from getting back to that deep slumber that very same night.

Good night sweet Dreams and don’t let the bed-bugs bite:)

Benefits of Milk and Horlicks Growth+ for Kids.

“Have your milk and go, Shabnam!” My aunt screams loud till the little girl is out of sight, jumping over the fence, hurriedly slipping into her shoes and excitedly plunging towards the road is my seven year old cousin Shabnum. She is unaware of the benefits of the milk!

To have her stranded and gulp the milk down is the toughest thing for my aunt. it’s not only her in the list where the mothers lose their temper at the active child who never abides to anything and Milk has always been one consistent drink that most kids hate drinking.

My aunt sighs as she puts up as to how her mother always used to cite the benefits of drinking milk.

Benefits of Milk

1.Milk provides the necessary calcium required for the bones.

The growing children has the streak of growth hormones and the proper measure of calcium is required for the strengthening of the fragile bones. You do know how kids are and how often they bruise themselves in a game

2. Milk provides the Vitamin D that provides that is required for the absorption of the calcium into the bones.

Now we do understand the importance of the morning sun rays and vitamin D, isn’t it? But the kids never seems to understand a word of wisdom that the parents speaks.

3.The proper consumption of milk helps in stronger bones and rapid proper growth in children.

4. They aid for the healthy teeth, rehydration to the body that is always active and improves the ability of the body for vitamin intake.
