Frustration

I never really thought myself as an angry person. I did keep my calm at many times in my life. People being arrogant, insults, general plain nastiness. I was never angry. I was always in control. Until I found out that it was not anger which I was supposed to be afraid of.
I was supposed to be afraid of frustration. If anger was a short madness, frustration was like a psychotic episode put on a gradually growing cycle. Continue reading “Frustration”

My First Writing Contest

My First Writing Contest

Many of you guys know that my first ever story to have been penned by me was ‘My Closest Stranger’. It was the first ever serious story I had ever written for an online literary magazine and to be honest, it was just a chance that I saw it in an English newspaper in my school’s library. I did not win, sadly and quite cruelly if I may say so, but the contest was something that was something akin to a proper push which pulled me deeper into the pages of this hobby. But my first competition dates back to when I had yet to change schools and was even a few grades back, maybe three or four before doing so. Continue reading “My First Writing Contest”

The Unflinching Critic

***Disclaimer: All characters mentioned in this post are fictional. Any resemblance to real life people is just a coincidence.***

“This book by John Casrem shows an intriguing story which many will come to love. However the characters could be called lackluster at best, with convoluted motives and not enough development to call…”

“The music is mediocre at best. The things to standout still was the piano section towards the end which I though could have been more than just a closing remark and the great vocals of Hilary Nipton. Still fans will…”

“I have always been a huge fan of Diana Supper’s style of cinematography and this new movie could really be  a benchmark in the art. The directions, the sudden instances of change of the lighting to convey the mood while still keeping it natural and believable…”

“Outstanding and sublime…”

“Fails to reach the mark set by…”

“An honest attempt, but…”

“A shoddy job…”

“Visionary…”

“Satisfactory…”

“Something for everybody…”

“Something everyone can appreciate…”

We are critics. We give our opinions to a creative work submitted by an artist. Yes, we judge them and assess them their values. We always try to take an objective approach but the end product will always contain some amount of subjectivity. You can say we act as the food tasters for the public.

My Thoughts On Depression

My Thoughts On Depression

***Foreword: The thoughts present on the subject below the post is in regards to clinical depression but they can be used to understand normal depression too.***

Many people who know me on social media, know me for my joking nature and silly antics. I am known to make light of situations to get a smile out of and I am blessed that I have not offended anybody until this day. Yet. But, even there are some subjects that even I dare not take an indifferent and humorous approach, not because of fear of the backlash of the people but because my conscience would berate me forever for it. And I don’t want to hurt the sentiments of anyone going through them by my ignorant behavior.

And today, I am going to talk about a very important topic which I have been newly introduced to but was aware of its existence since I was a child. This specific topic is a state which has been growing in an excessive rate. It is Depression. Continue reading “My Thoughts On Depression”

Defining Success

Defining Success

Everybody wants to become big in life. Success is one of the main motivation for enjoying life. Basically, when we reach a certain checkpoint of our career or work, we deem it as a success. People associate different concepts while defining how much successful they have become. We can define success in two different categories albeit in a very rough and rigid sense. Therefore I have not considered sports success, cause I did not want it to look more, but look smart. Spare this indiscretion, dear readers!

Let us look at it, one by one. Continue reading “Defining Success”
