COMING UP.......
Hello friends! 
It’s every 30 minutes on an average that I have visited my own blog since yesterday (!).

But to be honest, nothing seems impressive enough...I had always wanted my blog to be a place where I could post something useful to the community as a whole. So, here’s what I have decided...Under the heading “Pearls of wisdom”, I will write about some topic of general interest....something that you can feed your soul on!! So, watch out for the special feature from next post onwards.

 Anyway, I will keep writing stuffs other than this special column also! As for now, I will leave a poster for you all with a meaning so deep that it will surely arouse enough faith in you to leave no room for doubts and worries!


It was one fine day,
as usual, he crossed my way.
The most annoying things, he would incessantly say,
Still at the top of my friend’s list, he’d always stay!

Gradually, he opened up and shared,
& I came to terms with how much he cared!
It felt so nice when just for my sake,
he’d often place his own interests at stake.

I was so confused the day he said, “Believe me, it’s true,
in my life there is nothing without you.”
I knew I couldn’t accept, yet I didn’t dismiss,
not to say a thing that could hurt him, was my only wish.

And then one day, as I returned awake
from the fictional world so veritably fake,
It seemed as if lotuses were replaced by mosses and hake
in my crystal clear, beautiful dream lake;

I kept watching as he walked away,
I remained wordless, even when I’d so much to say.
My faith shattered in a moment,
I didn’t have time even to lament.

I cried as if I would never again cry,
I could stop only when my heart went dry.
As many times as he framed rigmarole of lie,
my soul had learnt to silently die.

Even when before me, every truth lies bare,
Giving him all happiness still seems fair!
It’ll take a lot of effort but I’ll try,
to give him the best gift ever – “A GOODBYE”!

I realize thereafter what my life will lack,
I want nothing more than my FRIEND back;
I was a mere human, bound to commit mistakes,
But to mend my ways, I’ll do whatever it takes.

Hey pals!! Couldn’t stop myself from writing another post today....This poem suddenly struck after a real long writer’s block period. (Seems it's the BLOG EFFECT!) However, I am sorry if you supposed that this tale was my story! Well, let me put it like this- If you don’t like this poem, don’t worry, I’ll try to do better next time.

But if you have liked it, let me tell you where the inspiration came from. It was not me or my friend’s life. The inspiration is the following poem I found somewhere on internet written by an anonymous poet. It has been  written very beautifully and I would really like to hear from the person who wrote it!

Anyway, it now feels good after penning down something I am actually finding worth posting....:)
I’d try to be regular though...Bye for now friends!
Have a good day, believe in yourself and DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!

For a host, a guest is always a ghost
If he has come, the host becomes dumb.
But still he has to talk, or else the guest starts off about his folk!
He is not liked, because of his terrible sight;
Today, the day is sunny, and the guest who has come is funny;
He has a long nose and small eyes that look like flies.
His old fashioned coat, looks like a big boat,
His large pants make you visualize military camps
He is so fat, that on the chair he sat, mewed like a cat!
He must have sat on the large armchair with the help of a mare!
Or the table would have made him able!!
He eats almost everything, till he goes in the house is left with nothing!
He sleeps so soundly on the bed, as if he is dead,
He seems alive only because he snores so loudly that it trembles the doors!
Don’t mind, I promise if I become a guest,
I won’t be a ghost to the host.
I love my guests the most,
And never tell them “Get lost”!!

Yes, I know this poem seems a bit not too promising. Two days, since I created my blog, I was wondering about what to write for the first post. There were a few good ideas and I admit some even better than this. But this poem of mine seemed the most special one because this is the first one I ever wrote. It's a bit childish but then, when it was written, I was a child!! I am reproducing the poem “as it WAS” without any editions....I hope this won't be taken as a loss at decision making, but as a profound attachment with my first write up!!

Anyway, don't be disappointed by the first post...there is a lot more to come, not only poems but all that I want share with the ones who take time to go through posts of a beginner like me. I will try to devote some time to this blog amidst the so called busy schedule of mine. If I say writing is my life, it's absolutely an exaggeration. But I will add that it’s my passion for sure. I am bad at expressing ‘all I want’ through speech. Whenever I am very happy or very sad, the first thing that comes to my mind is WRITING!! Be it a thank you or sorry, a smile or scorn, criticism or cynicism, love or friendship, for me, writing is the best option!

And one more thing, the name for this blog “ABHIVYAKTI” has been taken from an incident of my life I always wanted to forget. But recently, I realized that “NOTHING CAN BE SO BAD THAT IT CAN’T BE WORSE”. And hence, I have stopped running away from things that scare me...Now I embrace them! I do love the name – ABHIVYAKTI.....

They say I am a person of ‘TOO MANY WORDS’. I work for a newspaper and the editor is tired of making me get rid of my prolixity! I thought maybe I should find a place where I can express myself as I want to and what would have been a better option than a blog? Still I’ll try to express in as few words as I can! (As if I haven’t written a lot in this post itself!!)
