Vellichor

The strange wistfulness of used bookstores, which are somehow infused with the passage of time. It’s filled with thousands of old books you’ll never have time to read, each of which is itself locked in its own era, bound and dated and papered over like an old room the author abandoned years ago. Just like…

Do we need Godmen to reach God?

The Great Gatsby

Generally considered to be F. Scott Fitzgerald’s finest novel, The Great Gatsby is a consummate summary of the ‘roaring twenties’ and a devastating expose of the ‘Jazz Age’. Through the narration of Nick Carraway, the reader is taken into the superficially glittering world of the mansions which lined the Long Island shore of the American…

A Tribute to My Mom

I have been waiting, for a day when l’ll prove myself. When I hail even half as much, as you greeted life with zest. When I make you proud by being kind, and by loving one and all – the way you did, and you’ll hear the world sing, “She belongs to her nest” Wanna…

Freeze the Frame

The present moment is changing so fast that we often do not notice its existence at all. Every moment of mind is like a series of pictures passing though a projector. Some of the pictures come from sense impressions. Others come from memories of past experiences or from fantasies of the future. Mindfulness helps us…

കർമയോഗി

ജീവിതത്തിലെയും പ്രവര്‍ത്തനമേഖലയിലെയും പ്രതികൂലസാഹചര്യങ്ങളെ ചെറുത്ത്, ഭാരതത്തിൻ്റെ മര്‍മസ്ഥാനങ്ങളെ ബന്ധിപ്പിക്കുന്ന മെട്രോ റെയിലുകളുടെയും കൊങ്കണ്‍ റെയില്‍പാതയുടെയും നിര്‍മാണത്തിലൂടെ ഇന്ത്യയുടെ മെട്രോമാനായി മാറിയ ഇ.ശ്രീധരന്‍ എന്ന തളരാത്ത കര്‍മയോഗിയുടെ കഥ. ഏതൊരു കര്‍മമേഖലയില്‍ പ്രവര്‍ത്തിക്കുന്നവര്‍ക്കും പ്രചോദനമായിത്തീരുന്ന, അതിഭാവുകത്വങ്ങളില്ലാതെ വിവരിക്കപ്പെടുന്ന ജീവിതാനുഭവങ്ങള്‍. രചയിതാവ് : എം.എസ്.അശോകൻ നിങ്ങൾക്കും എഴുതാം..ഒരു പക്ഷേ ഇതൊരു തുടക്കമായിരിക്കാം. പണ്ടെപ്പോഴോ പാതിവഴിയിൽ ഉപേക്ഷിച്ച ഒരു യാത്രയുടെ തുടക്കം. അക്ഷരങ്ങളുടെ ലോകത്തിലൂടെ ഒരു കൊച്ചു പ്രയാണം. ഈ പ്രയാണത്തിൽ പങ്കാളികളാകാൻ താല്പര്യമുള്ളവർ താഴെ കൊടുത്തിരിക്കുന്ന ലിങ്ക് വഴി ബന്ധപ്പെടുക, എനിക്കും…

Forever

For them I have always been, For them I will always be- For the ones who cherish my presence. For them who do not notice- Am I that easy to disregard? Am I that hard to acknowledge? Is it that simple to misjudge? Am I that difficult to read? You might realise one day, You…

Adomania

Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a project, to create a compendium of invented words for every emotion we might all experience but…

Seamless Thoughts

Your thought comes seamlessly, like a cold breeze after rain. It lingers there, enveloping me in a cold embrace, I always work tirelessly to make it go away. Your thought is becoming an addiction, something that I long for, even knowing what it entails. And yet the momentary inclination- of what could have been were…

The Silence

Four monks decided to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks. By nightfall on the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out. The first monk said, “Oh, no! The candle is out.” The second monk said, “Aren’t we not suppose to talk?” The third monk said, “Why must you two break the silence?” The fourth monk laughed…

Life Interwoven with Thoughts

Thoughts come like waves in the ocean. Human thoughts travel very fast, in fact, faster than sound and light. The moment we imagine things, we reach there. We can reach anywhere with multitudes of thoughts. However, there is what is called our real self. It is like an ocean. No thoughts reach there. It is…
