On the 13th  of June, it was raining. Didn’t that date ring a bell? School reopening, everything new and oh, the rainfall. Perfect… the memories…

I sighed heavily as I wrote this. I was absolutely dazzled by how one moment (in the example: rain) creates so many memories (in the example: school reopening). Moments and memories. Yeah, such a unique way to time-travel. I also wrote a poem about it titled ‘Unlock Memories’. It was my last update on this blog. In May. Four months passed. I had stopped blogging. Then, my phone beeped with a WhatsApp notification. It read:

Your writing style is fabulous. I have read a lot of your blog posts

That was from Prashant. Prashantji was in my Creative Writing workshop of Jan ’20. I got a few more from friends and family but this was from a writer himself, which made it special. It motivated me to revisit my blog and to write again. There, I stumbled upon this. It was an article I wrote about simply Doing stuff and not just keep Trying. So, I did what I had advised someone recently,

‘Go For It’.


Don’t Try

Once upon a time, I came across an intensely moving quote:

Don’t try, do. Because if you’re spending your time trying something, you’re not doing it… DON’T TRY.

–          Linda Bukowski (Charles Bukowski’s wife)

That created great curiosity in me about who Charles Bukowski is.
