Depth of my feelings - II

Depth of my feelings - II



The lights were dimming fast, thoughts perishing as they went. A meticulous merry mark of mischievous matrimony
Scarred in places, reborn with paces
He touched her hands ever so slightly as she reflected on the riches of her guilty pleasures. 
Once deflected of the most unclear joys he perched his sorrows on ulterior grounds.
Searching in the brisk moonlight, putting out his hand in the scorching moonlight
Unearthly forgetfulness centered around one such dissonance
Truth be told, it never went so far but ever so further
Crossing oceans of agonizing happiness he pulled her close and dipped inside her inner sanctum
Marching past disbelief, he somehow felt at home
Upper and lower, near and far. I saw but a raging fire trapped inside a little jar.
I crept ever so gently across the promised lands
I received solace as I felt her's in my hands
She smiled ever so calmly while she cried a raging river
The sorry little poster child finally reached under my skin

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…

6 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT YOUTH

It is said that the world’s two most prized gifts are the love of a woman and the beauty of youth. While we always talk about women, today let’s take this opportunity to talk about youth. Youth is the most treasured trait that a person can have, without it a person can be 45 but feel like 85.
