Fiction- the Imaginable truth

“Fiction gives us a second chance that life denies us.”- a great saying by the famous travel writer and novelist Mr. Paul Theroux. When I first heard of a fiction novel, years back the first thing that comes to my mind was why? Why fiction? The idea of reading fiction novels seems absurd to me at first because fiction was nothing like reality. Why people want to read something which is not even true, which is just an imagination of someone else written on a piece of paper. But I remember one of the most famous quotes of Albert...

Success and failure two sides of a coin

A great saying by the most successful entrepreneur of our era. There are 19,000 startups in India and yet only 2-3 will be successful but for rest of them it is the ‘perfect storm’. After the ‘perfect storm’ most of them return to their previous jobs and give up on their dreams. But the main question we face here is why? Many people having a good business mindset and knowledge, having good financial background should be able to succeed shouldn’t they, well not necessarily, because every successful entrepreneur has one extra thing in common, they refuse to give up....

Lost Friendships

Friendship is one of the most beautiful aspects of a person’s life. There is a famous saying which says, “Friends are the family we choose for ourselves”. And how very true is that statement? A friendship is a beautiful bond between two individuals, built on the foundation of trust. When we make someone our friend, we trust them. Such friendships often last long. As we are sure, that our friend would never hurt or betray us. Alas! That is not what always happens. Often we read about incidents in which, the betrayal comes from the closest friend. Some friendships...

BORN IS A SAVIOUR For to us a Child is born, To us, a Son is given… -The Book of Isaiah the Prophet   Part – 1 As the donkey trudged on On whom a woman sat upon; The turbaned figure to and fro went, Seeking for inns till his vigour was spent. A rich carpenter was he, He had lots of money, you see. But no room for him and his bride, Who now felt labour was by her side. They saw a manger near Out of which they could hear, Cooing and mooing and bleating. Was God now them cheating. For, many a month’s awhile, She had received a message with a smile; “Born shall be a Child, Whose doings shall not be mild”. This Baby was singular He would in two millennia be popular, For all He would speak and do And for His holy death too. As the virgin with birth pangs was hit They rushed into the manger to sit. The carpenter readied his hand His forehead sweaty and bland. ‘It’ll be over soon dear’ Voiced the tensed carpenter. He flashed back to the past And got lost at last. Said the angel to him: “Fear not, this is not a dream; It’s a vision on the stead And peace until you’ve heard what I’ve said. “Your wife still does a virgin remain Understand...
