About Me

About Me

On that misty evening, she asked me to pen down regarding myself! While writing besides the warmth of fiery firewood, I got stuck by its unusual ending; all I wanted to say to her was not about myself, it’s all about herself.

A Writer’s Pen

He dreamt of a fairy-tale

Bits of paper flew away

An end, left undone.

Book Review: The Other Side Of The Bed

Whenever I read a book, I invariably have a feeling to finish it at the earliest as possible. But most of the times, my bid to rob the contents written by someone in his book, through his thoughts, would end up only after days or months since I embarked on taking it. Only when it fares to “The Other Side Of The Bed written by Bhavya Kaushik, I still don’t know whether I’ve completed reading it in just 2 and half hours because of the little connection I’ve with this new Indian author. No… Never… I admit the fact that I’ve done it in a short yoke of time (for me), in the meanwhile I wasn’t acknowledged by the flow of time while reading this simple work. This isn’t an emphasis to state that the source of this story- Bhavya Kaushik have done such a bang-up job via his officially published 1st book; the tender stream of words together with a predictable novel plot is what really mattered here. I hadn’t ever been through a writing class similar to this one from any other Indian author than Preeti Shenoy yet.

That moment when I started reading The Other Side Of The Bed!

“The Other Side Of Bed” written by Bhavya Kaushik engages with an average-romantic-tragical thread which might not constitute a perfect reading experience for many of the readers, I’m one among them; the vibes of a different-hysterical story is the backbone of a novel. If a writer can act with the words and mixing them in the right portion, not more or less, in a normal story plot, and so the probability of creating a magic on certain pages of paper definitely deserves him. I shall call him not a writer, but an M-writer. As I ceased reading the 1st few pages of the book, my mind lingers for more to find out what he’s conveyed in his story telling process using the M-factor.

“Thirty days have passed since I saw her for the last time, but neither did thirty seconds could have passed when I didn’t think of her”

The novel reveals the life of Nakul, Tamanna and Devayani who faced a little harsh and sadistic event during the serial bomb attacks happened in the urban center where they were dwelling, their later life and the changes they brought back to the life after the catastrophe. The first half brings the stories of these 3 characters pinned together with their love story, emotions and the relationship, however the other half deals with their empowerment to act against the grounds they’ve confronted in their biography.

Positives:

1. A better beginning for a young Indian author in the field of writing.

2. The magical flow of the words he’s used in his novel for the manifestation of his thoughts in a lifelike way.

3. The perfect expression of certain personal experiences can be understood in the novel’s plot.

Negatives:

1. An average story plot which is predictable and the story slightly drags during the middle portions.

2. The repetition of same dialogues, regarding the 2 major events, in many sections of the conversation between the characters compelled me to give out 2-3 pages.

3. Even though a twist was expected by the end, the climax part of the novel hadn’t given me ANYTHING special.

If you’re willing to follow an aspiring Indian author who portrays his poignant thoughts through the marvelous language of expression in his debutante novel, and hence I strongly recommend “The Other Side Of The Bed” to you. Have a wonderful read.

That Day

Sometimes, I forget the intentions to be accomplished in my life, the things I’ve to be done before that day. They constantly address it as a sacred moment- a couple seconds which helps to interpret the other face in me- a hooked path yet to be unknotted…..

Goddamn angelic outlook she has…. I know… I know I’m…. My mood swings…. Um… When she enters our S3 105 classroom.

വെളിച്ചം (ഭാഗം 2)

ഈ കഥയുടെ ആദ്യഭാഗം എന്തായിരുന്നു എന്നറിയുവാന്‍ ഇവിടെ തപ്പുക!

‘മലയാളം’ കീബോര്‍ഡില്‍ എഴുതിയെടുക്കാന്‍ കുറച്ച് സമയമെടുക്കും എന്ന കാരണം കൊണ്ട് ഞാന്‍ എന്റെ സ്വന്തം കയ്യെഴുത്ത് കൊണ്ട് കഥ ഇവിടെ തുടരുന്നു. തുടര്‍ന്ന് വായിക്കാന്‍ എന്റെ കയ്യക്ഷരം ഒരു പ്രശ്നമാവില്ല എന്ന് കരുതുന്നു.

വെളിച്ചം

വെളിച്ചം

വെളിച്ചം

കുറിപ്പ്: വെളിച്ചം എപ്പോഴോ എന്റെ കയ്യില്‍ നിന്നും വിട്ടുപോയ ഒരു കഥാതന്തുവാണ്! ഇന്ന് വളരെ ആകസ്മികമായി എന്റെ ഒരു ബ്ലോഗ്‌ ഫോളോവര്‍ ഈ കഥയുടെ ബാക്കി ഭാഗം എവിടെ എന്ന് ചോദിച്ചു. ഇരുട്ടിലായിരുന്ന എന്നിലെ ചിന്തകള്‍ക്ക് ഊര്‍ജം പകര്‍ന്ന ആ അപരിചതന് വളരെ അധികം നന്ദി. പിന്നെ ഇത്തരമൊരു രീതിയില്‍ ബ്ലോഗ്‌ പോസ്റ്റുകള്‍ ഇടാം എന്ന അഭിപ്രായം എനിക്ക് മുന്നില്‍ പങ്കുവെച്ച ആ മഹാതിയോടും ഞാന്‍ എന്റെ നന്ദി രേഖപ്പെടുത്തുന്നു.
