How unexpectedly life takes turn,
making all decisions worth!
Like a shooting star you fell into my lap
with beaming optimism and jazzy claps.
That first eye contact is still continuing
Your magic of touch is still worth pursuing.
I can’t get enough of your talks
Everything is enchanting from your voice to our datenight walks.
I found in you a reflection of me
Your arrival tickled the half-slept child in me
Baby, sweetheart, and darling were just some words till now
Your affection, your love made these words sound wow!
The very initials of your name bring a broad smile on my face
My lips instantly start craving for your mouth’s taste.
We have shared an unstoppable kiss
whose power carries a pure bliss.
I don’t know how far this bond will go
I don’t know how bright our memories will glow
I just know we love, we laugh, we fight, we tease, and we care
Falling hard for each other every time and keeping alive our love affair!
Khaled Hosseini is an Afghan born American novelist who wrote three best-selling books – Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns and And The Mountains Echoed. When I read his books I realized that Khaled Hosseini has a deep understanding of human emotions and relationships which is reflected in his writing.
“A Thousand Splendid Suns” took me to the middle of Afghanistan and threw me in the turmoil that Afghanistan went through for thirty years. Khaled Hosseini left no stones unturned to describe how women were oppressed by the men who were supposed to be their protectors. But this book is not about how women were treated nor about the ongoing war. It is about the beautiful relationship that formed between two women who were supposed to be hostile towards each other. Mariam and Laila were born in two different generation but shared the same husband. Although Mariam resented Laila but later they became each other’s saviors. Mistreated and abused, Mariam and Laila found solace in each other. And that’s where the beauty of the book lies.
Most of the books only talk about lovers or blood relations but this book dealt with a much more difficult relationship which could not be termed in words. Mariam & Laila were sisters sometimes and sometimes mother and daughter but what bound them together was their love for each other. It is not a romantic novel but it has shown love in a manner that expresses love in a more complex yet better way than any romance novel could. Love in any form even as a memory is the key to survive any harshness that the world puts on us.
This book made me feel angry and disgusted at the world and yet those two women brought happiness and hope, a happiness in the midst of immense sorrow. A happiness that I never thought could be possible in such a situation but Khaled Hosseini showed me that the heart had mysterious ways to find hope of survival.
I would give this book a 5/5 rating and would recommend it to the readers, so that, they themselves could experience the emotions that I have experienced through Hosseini’s writing.
Paul Burke is a lesser known novelist and a better known copywriter & screen writer. Before becoming an author, Paul Burke wrote some of Britain’s best-loved TV commercials, including campaigns for Barclaycard, PG Tips, Volkswagen and Budweiser. He is best known for his book – Father Frank and The Man who Fell in Love with his Wife is his third novel.
“From the moment Father Frank Dempsey’s covetous gaze fell upon Sarah Marshall, he knew that his vow of celibacy was on a life-support machine. Once it became clear that his love was reciprocated, an invisible doctor had come in, coughed politely and switched it off.”
Seldom does a book leave an aftertaste so addictive, it leaves you craving for more. The sequel to “Father Frank” however does that and manages to live up to the glory of its prequel. The Man who Fell in Love with his Wife does an incredible job of giving a fitting end to Father Frank and Sarah Marshall’s love story. A Catholic priest’s celibacy vows end the day he meets his true love. They get married. Life after marriage isn’t as easy as it seems with Frank having to struggle for a job after having been under the church for so long. The story has its background set in England and has an Irish touch to it. The life of an Irish family is described hilariously and is informative in its own ways. His struggles in the world outside the church and his journey on being an actual father to twins are one of the many concepts explored in this book.
This book is very special because it has a rare genre that is usually dominated by very few authors. It is highly underrated and very cleverly put together. The author has woven an impossible yet realistic story at the same time which makes it so hilarious and charming. Be sure to check out this quaint and highly entertaining book. It is definitely worth an afternoon.
I would give this book a 4.5/5 for it’s humor and it’s ability to capture the readers attention till the end. It is definitely a must read.
Coz some people are worth melting for ❤
“Ignorance is bliss”, they say
and I was an ardent follower too.
Surprises never crossed my way,
only, until you decided to woo.
Hugging me with all the love was something
which you did then, and still do.
It’s been a year now, of our togetherness
clearly, it was worth melting for you!
Perfect in every sense
like an angelic presence you have been.
For me, your passion is so intense
that our love is a kind no one has seen.
Shakespeare gave us the true definition of love ❤
Being in love is like walking with an invisible halo of happiness around you. The most precious inner and outer joy called love transports you directly to a fantastical la la land. And, we celebrate this magical love on Valentine’s Day with our loved ones, although, I truly believe that we should celebrate it every day. I believe when you are with the right partner, your every day is gushing with love. But Valentine’s Day for me is an opportunity to express my side of love since I’m not that expressive. It is a day to convey to my valentine how much I love him and to thank him for being the perfect substitute of missing perfection of my life. So, I’m dedicating this Shakespearean sonnet to my special someone and all the lovebirds out there 🙂
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
Yeah, Love’s not Time’s fool
Don’t just wait for your Santa, be the Santa of somebody else’s life as well 🙂
Christmas is a synonym for gifts, love, happiness and, most importantly, positive vibes 😀 I know how excited all of you are, waiting for your Santa to bring you loads of presents, I share the similar kind of sentiments too! And, it is not just a foreign phenomenon anymore, we, in India, celebrate Christmas in the same spirit (or may be in higher spirits) as it is celebrated all over the world.
My favorite part about Christmas is, obviously, eating the most yummy plum-cake but also to spread happiness, just like Santa does, in others lives by doing charity. I may not dress up as a Santa but I do pledge every Christmas to do some sort of philanthropic work and this is what my post is about. I want to request all of you guys that, our spirit of charity should not stop as soon as 25th December ends. Please continue the humanitarian contribution throughout the year and take a pledge to be the Santa of someone else’s life 🙂
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, may all of your wishes come true and may, you gain enough potential to make someone else’s wishes come true as well :*
