The pen, the sword, the eternal magic

The pen, the sword, the eternal magic,

The enigma of life stood still,

On her journey to heaven,

On her quest for peace.

She was a poet, a deadly fighter

A warrior, a believer

But the truth of her life,

Remained in the dark.

She was the antagonist,

The protagonist of her own story;

She laid it down on paper,

All her tranquil thoughts

But there was war outside her door:

There were tears of blood.

As the world stood still,

Her pen moved;

And won endless hearts,

But outside her door,

Was the oxymoron of what the world should really be.

It was the war against humanity,

The war against fate;

But she did win that war,

With words the world will never forget.

But then came the final blow,

The blow which was the end;

Thanatos took the disguise of typhus,

And excruciating pain.

But her name has been sung,

And her diary has been read,

The pen, the sword, the eternal magic:

Write it down, fight it off, the eternal tragic.

Dunkirk: Movie Review

Hey world! Hope you’re having a great weekend!:) Today I’m gonna review Dunkirk (directed by Christopher Nolan).

Image result for dunkirk

Director  – Christopher Nolan

Release date – July 21 ( US theatrical release)

Music byHans Zimmer

Undoubtedly, Christopher Nolan’s films are breathtakingly beautiful. This one really did live up to the expectations of a Harry Styles fan. Actually, I watched this movie only because Harry was playing a role in it. But, however this movie led to new favorites : Fionn Whitehead as Tommy and Barry Keoghan as George.

It was nice to see UK and France as an united side in war. They were allies, but I couldn’t help but notice a few discrepancies in this film regarding this fact. This movie was successful in weaving a tapestry of the two generations – the 1900s and the present world with the antique effects and the modern sound effects. Honestly, at times,  the sound mixing made me believe I was actually in the war zone. I could hear the same things the soldiers could hear – the intricate gunshots, dropping of bombs, etc.

This films saw youngsters trying to cheat death. Alex ( Harry Styles), Tommy ( Fionn Whitehead) , George ( Barry Keoghan) and many others were young combatants in this war against the Germans. This really bought tears to my eyes. Especially, George, who was my favorite in the film. George, at a mild age of 17, fought hard against pain when he got shot in the head and lost his eyesight.

The last few scenes of this film were probably the most inspirational ones I have ever seen. I really loved this movie from the depths of my heart. We really know anything about how difficult the lives of soldiers are. Dunkirk at least showed me a fragment of what their lives actually are.

Well, talking of war, we, humans should really stop fighting against each other.

Well, these are a few lines from George Orwell’s book 1984!

Make sure you watch Dunkirk!!!!!

Maya Angelou was an extremely inspiring person. Many of her quotes tell us to be the cause of someone else’s happiness.

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain; ”

– Emily Dickinson

Trying to cheer someone up during their misery is excruciatingly beautiful. I think this quote is self-explanatory. These are just a few simple words. But I’m bound to say that these words really lit up my day.

Don’t you think it is a bit like the universal language of kindness and love which Paulo Coelho wanted to explain in The Alchemist? The language which everyone understands? Yes, it is a language which people from cultures and origins different to us can understand effortlessly. And, yes, once we stop discriminating handicapped people, this language can mean the world to them. And nowadays isn’t there a saying which says:

” Throw kindness around like confetti”?

Quotes have me submerged in their beauty. So, today, here’s a quote on imagination:

Image result for imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. but without it we go nowhere

If you have read Cosmos by Carl Sagan, then you surely know that he had a galaxy in his eyes and an universe in his mind. Astrophysicists have always blown my mind and are continuing to do so. To be honest, imagination is reality itself. What we think is what we imagine, and what we imagine is what we are. We are composed of our imaginations and beliefs. Whenever I read any work of fiction, I get transported to the author’s imagination. And getting transported, or sharing someone else’s imagination, is a really intricate and beautiful labyrinth. And we should actually visit those labyrinths often in our life. Imagination takes us to places that never were, or never will be, it takes us to places where we can explore the tranquillity of thoughts.

For my nominees , today I pick:

Brewing Hope

Inside this tranquil emotion lies myriad thoughts of mine. Hope is like an endless pit. It’s like a tunnel you cannot stop falling into. Just like the tunnel in Alice in Wonderland. It is an iridescent flower in the garden of darkness. Just when you thought it was the end, this nonchalant thought pops up. And then hope takes over your mind. And in the end, you end up winning the match. You end up winning the challenge. It is exactly like a kaleidoscope: blooming and blooming with happy colours. Does anybody remember the ancient Greek story including Prometheus and Epimetheus and Pandora? Well, I don’t criticise Pandora for bringing the evils of life into this world. I actually appreciate her for bringing them, and also for bringing the concept of hope. Can you imagine how much hope can do to the mind of a homeless person? How much it can help?

 

Well, this is a poem which I wrote. Hope you like it!!!!

THE PLEBEIAN

Hell was peeping through his sky,

All he wanted was one more time;

He looked around amidst his cry,

All were extravagant but couldn’t spare him a dime.

He felt around his cheeks where,

He had been lashed for taking food;

He already had it clear,

That this world was actually no good.

Tears came streaming down his eyes,

For his sister had just perished of hunger;

He had tried a million times,

To shut down all his anger.

But trying was no good to him,

And all he did was wonder;

Wonder about all those men,

Who had the world at their fingers.

All around him people were passing,

All rich, rich and rich;

Only one of them seemed to care about,

Poverty’s glitch.

She knelt down in front of him,

Asked him his name;

And in a trembling voice,

The plebeian said, “Ma’am, I’m Benjamin.”

She told him to unclench his fist,

And dropped umpteen coins and smiled;

And Benjamin’s heart was an unkempt beast,

As he had never thought that anyone could ever be so kind.

He muttered a small, “Thank you.”

And she just smiled and left;

But he didn’t have enough words to thank her,

So he just smiled and wept.

But the greatest unanswered question,

Was for the world to answer;

The same question throughout the generations,

What about the ‘Plebeian’?

Words are everything

Mellow, playful , supple and bold – that’s what words are.; and an intrepid reader tends to trip over them. Words are beautiful but stubborn children of our brain. And doesn’t that moment always come? The moment when language fails? The moment when  English fails to portray your thoughts? Yes, that moment arrives. Soon or late, it does come. During fall or during spring, that moment’s always there.

Image result for quotes on thoughts you can't describe

But we do understand that moment. The pain or the joy, the relief or the grief, we do understand. If you cannot simply explain it, here are some words which might help you to elaborate:

1.PETRICHOR

Image result for petrichor

Aaaaahhh……the smell of the soil after rain…….Beautiful, isn’t it?  Beautiful, just like the smell of new books? I really hope there is a word to explain that…

 

2.VOORPRET

Image result for beautiful words

Don’t we always feel it? The voorpret of life? Or something like the countdown before Christmas, or Halloween or Easter?

3.CHUTZPAH

Image result for beautiful words

Hmmmm…. some of us stink of  chutzpah, while some of us seriously lack it……

4.MUDITA

To be honest, it’s a really beautiful word and a really beautiful trait.
