Will you still love me?

‘Will you still love me?‘ by Ravinder Singh is the book I picked up to get into the reading habit once again. It’s on the first rack of the small library I found in this ‘library-extinct mode’ city. 
This is a light read, not so heavy novel (content and size wise). Started typically as a love story between a Punjabi boy and a north-east girl, it shows the contrast in mindsets at various levels. I had read the earlier works of this author, “I too had a love story’,”Can love happen twice?“, they go in the similar line. But two points stood out for me in this book, one is the best portrayal of North-eastern states, specially Meghalaya and the streets of Patiala which fed the traveling soul inside me. And the Second point is of the parallel track on the Road safety issue (One of the many issues we are pertinently careless about). 
Overall, It’s a good try to convey a social message through the rapid change in lead characters lives. Likewise, showing that an accident does not happen spontaneously, but stems out from a series of events until then. 
Lines like, “Happiness is felt more deeply in the face of unhappiness.” and “Some goodbyes require us to express ourselves.” stayed with me.
So it’s fine for single-go reading, without putting much effort on our side. 

See you next time with another peek into the time experience.

One long oscillation!

To go or to not go.

To be or not to be.

To breathe or to fake.

To merge into or to let out.

Last week showed me how life constantly throws the complete contrast situations at you and tests the balance you come up with. That’s it, the more you face things, the more you come up with ways to balance. The more the balance, the more the peace.

Of course, some contrasts are actually fun. Like watching first cricket match inside a stadium. But some contrasts leave you to not get illusioned for fun too. Like, missing your sister’s wedding with no possibility. or way out.

 

Whatever the case, the handmade card I am trying for sister gave me a feeling that it never oscillates that bad to the worst case scenario situation. Everything will eventually come around!

Detach and Connect.

Whether it’s a satisfying-happy phase or a clueless, tiring ride, it’s important to find a middle path to refresh and reboot. Refreshing gives the cleanly washed vision of the things that matter than just keep on roller-coastering through happy or sad emotions.

The refresh and reboot point for me today is sipping lemon infused green tea in silence. Detoxing body along with mind detaches you from emotions and helps to focus on the job at hand. So back to the basic philosophy. One thing at a time… savor the life in moments and experiences slowly.
See you, world!
