My Power Quote !

A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

Life is not what one lived, but what one remembers and how one remembers it in order to recount it.
            - Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Every season has its own flavor.

Delhi for the past so many days is experiencing scorching heat and rains now have considerably dipped the temperatures and my writer's pen is dancing with delight !

Since April, 2015, my pace of writing is almost dead slow. The huge factor for this dismal performance is 'professional commitments'.   To bring sanity back into my writer's life seems to be  stupendous task and I must maintain a soldier's spirit.

To write means to embrace the best in life on daily basis. To jot down in the journal of life, the only prerequisite is,  to live on it.  The incessant rains that swept Delhi reminded me Khushwant Singh's classic 'Train to Pakistan' where he says that Monsoon is another name for rain.   It's Arabic name ( Mausom)  indicates it is a season.  He further elaborates that there is a summer monsoon as well as a winter monsoon, but it is only the nimbus south-west winds of summer that makes a mansoon the season of the rains.

This rainy day - 11th July, 2015 though has its ugly patch as it leaked my bedroom but it definitely caught my imagination more than anything as I went to bookstore amidst heavy downpour  to purchase two books one of which is American Classic : Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin.  The joy of reading the  favourite portions of those two books in an unconventional venue called a bus stop  is truly rewarding !
