#BlogchatterEbook – The Three Flowers

“I take on the Baton of Blogchatter Ebook Carnival to VT Rakesh  whose Ebook “The Thorough Check” is also a part of the mix. 

About VT Rakesh’s Ebook: ” So much have been talked about to quell the great religious divide in India. But it pervades like a dust storm all across the society, politics, business and intelligentsia. Here is an honest attempt to see the nation first, a nation which cannot afford to talk divisive after sweltering for hundreds of years under foreign rule and their loot. This is the story of a police officer who puts his life at stake in protecting the country. Narrated at the back drop of some scintillating scenes of love, passion and adventure it keeps the readers glued to the content. The earthly appeal, scenic locales and the contemporary relevance, make it a darling for all age groups. The book creates yet another “tryst with destiny”, this time in the twenty first century. The protagonist achieves what the creators of this nation couldn’t, a change of heart of the hardliners. A must read for the world citizens of tomorrow – Vasudaivakudumbakam. “
 

Micropoetry is a genre of poetic verse which is characterized by its extreme brevity. As a poetic art form, it doesn’t really have any rules. There are also no real character length limitations either. The limits are set by the medium with which they are being shared, and also that invisible line where micropoetry becomes a regular length poem. Micropoetry, whilst not new forms, has found a home on social media. On Twitter, the poem is restricted by a limited character count. On Instagram, a micropoem can be defined as one that fits easily on a single post, without the use of the caption. This E-book of mine has 26 Micropoems on various topics which are not bound by word, stanza or syllable rules and rhyming is optional.  Themes remain at the discretion from the humorous and bizarre, to the deeply personal and political. From the outside it might seem like an easy option, but those who practice this poetry form know that it is not always easy to get it right and an excellent micropoem requires the same amount of work, and revision, as their lengthier cousins.

“I pass on the Baton of Blogchatter Ebook Carnival to Nivedita whose Ebook “Other Poems and Rusted Goddess” is also a part of the mix.

I love my blog

I take on the baton of Blog Love from Shweta Dave

What is your blogging story? Are you a self lover of your own blog? If not you should be, your blog deserves all the love of the world.

I love the fact that my blog is mine and mine only – and only I can dictate what it looks like and what content is on here. And that is SUCH a good feeling full of LOVE.

I’m support self love and love for your blog, because the more you show yourself and your blog all the love, the more your viewers are going to love your blog too, trust me, it is tired and tested theory.

I am in absolute LOVE with my blog. Like I said before, I love it so much that I regularly hop onto my blog every morning, afternoon and night, pretending to be a reader, so that I can enjoy reading my posts from another point of view. I can also pull up any missed spelling mistakes or grammatical errors I may have made when I first wrote the post too – oops!!

I love my blog because it gave me a chance to be part of some great blogging communities and brands and form some key connections. I have the freedom to express myself through words. I manage myself and I don’t have to report to anyone. Sometimes when I forget to publish a blog post, I only have myself to get angry at and no one is held responsible. I get to pick my own hours to write even though ever more this is becoming a full time engagement for me which I love nevertheless. And I get write about ANYTHING – whether it’s my own personal story, health awareness advice, or a Where to Eat, Shop & tour around and the most important which BOOKS to read.

It is truly grand being a blogger. I am different to every other blogger around me. My content is like chalk and cheese, my writing style is diverse, and every one of us, do have unique stories and personal sides to share with readers.

Exercise self love for your blog. Be proud of what you have made of every chance that you were given. The more love you show for your blog, the more it will show to your readers and the better the blogging world will be for you. This Valentine’s Day pledge to love your blog and it will love you back for sure.

I pass on the baton of Blog Love to VT Rakesh

Serendipity

Sometimes it comes down to ideal timing, total twist of fate or just plain chance. I am always open to serendipity. I never know the cause, but there is always a motive. I would like to share few of my Serendipitous moments to remind how Beautiful life truly is.

  1. Exchanging a smile with a stranger.
  2. A sip of ice-cold water when I am thirsty.
  3. A kiss from him.
  4. Opening windows to the first sunrays
  5. Laughing at something incredibly random
  6. Finding a note from him
  7. Trying a new cuisine and loving it
  8. Reading something that gives me thrills and chills
  9. A hug from a loved one.
  10. The sweet smell of rain.
  11. An unexpected phone call
  12. Stumbling across old photographs.
  13. Listening to a song that brings back memories.
  14. Seeing your reflection in the mirror and feeling confident.
  15. Having a deep conversation and feeling like they ‘get it’.

Serendipity can change your life in ways you may never have dared to dream; it’s just a matter of recall to welcome these moments into your life and to make the most of them. The more you believe in serendipity, the more it’s likely to come about.

One shape on one Globe

One shape on one Globe, but why?

Her zero waist and thunder thighs

I’m stuck with having just nice eyes, but why?

That long black hair and her perfect skin

I’m trying to just get into shape, but why?

The society praises the ideal woman

Who exists flawlessly only in the magazines

We edit, nip, tuck and afflict our bodies

As we are the ‘object’, men lust about, but why?

I want to change this outlook as we are not objects. When we act inside the lines of society it changes our principles, we act wickedly because that is what is expected. Men face stereo types but are told to ignore them but as women we are told to grip them but why? How can we not with main stream celebrities flaunting their tall, short, skinny bodies and we are thick. There’s more than one form so just take that in. The stereo types of flawlessness are not fair. Women hurt themselves to be perfect…I think it’s time we stand up and be concerned. Every woman is different as we come in many shapes and sizes so why do we make one mould? We need to embrace the variations because if were all the same, don’t you think it might get old?

The Confessions of a Happy bird

I’ve read many blogs about people’s pet peeves and all those really drive me to an instant anxiety attack and I’m not going to focus on that today.

I have ‘happy bombs’ in my life. They are small, little life eccentricities that makes me feel like the world isn’t so bad after all. When they happen, I feel like a mini explosion of happiness in me.

When I do not expect to be noticed and I am encouraged on something I’ve been working hard on. I get random snack cravings and to find them in my fridge, this is that happy moment. Cravings sometimes suck when you don’t have access to slake them. But when you do? *Does the happy dance*.

I always like to be on time and only few times with blessings of city’s magical phantom algorithm I’ve been able to completely bypass the infamous traffic and make it to my destination cuss-free and this is when  the gods of traffic shine down on me, happy very happy.

A new notebook, a beautiful pen, a gorgeous letter-writing set or note cards unleashes a powerful emotion called happiness in me. Stationery, seeing them gives me beyond measure satisfaction like being super happy just finding an organizer big enough to fit my lot. 

It’s not just the stories I love when I say that books make me happy; sometimes it’s the presence of them. I can never think of a time I was unhappy in a library, a bookshop, or in the nook where I keep most of the books I own in my room. I can sit near a pile of books and be happy is all I am saying; maybe it’s because they have given me so many happy times throughout. 

Coffee is happiness in a cup. I’m thrilled to have this one guilty happiness carry with it less guilt and more pleasure. The smell of coffee in the morning is a happy alarm clock, except I won’t just press the ‘snooze button’.

He makes me happy to talk to. I am happy when he calls, texts or writes to me to respond on something silly I have posted on social media or shared with him. Those little arguments we have makes me happy thinking about the makeup love. It is happiness when he teases me. It is a happy moment when I make him laugh. Happiness is his handwritten note(s) appreciating me. When he looks at me, I mean really looks at my kohl’ed brown eyes with focus and smiles; like I’ve just done a bit of something wonderful and worthy are always the newest, the brightest, and the happiest moments.  

I am always surprised how successful and fulfilled I feel when I do what makes me happy. Whatever it is: writing, reading, sports, eating, studying, surfing, drawing, or singing. Choosing to be happy doesn’t mean turning off your brain. It means tuning your brain and heart to work better together than disjointedly. So what makes you happy, let us talk about it?
