5 MAVERICK FEATHERS IN THE WINGS OF ICARUS!


Creating topics for me to reinforce back the reduced passion of writing since the last few days,        

  http://managuagunntoday.wordpress.com  tagged me in this wonderful challenge to give me a chance to come out of  inertia!

 

Well! I have to host a dinner party! And thats always been  my favourite! 🙂 Only that the guests were always  friends ,relatives or somewhat new acquaintances and believe me Iam a wonderfully perfect host! The challenge lies here in the guests list which is completely different!

The dinner is a simple affair:

– Five guests and myself . While relatives are permitted, it will be more interesting if guests are public figures – dead or alive, speaking any language – or even fictional characters.

– In turn, tag five others to hold Virtual Parties of their own.

The dinner would be held in the beautiful cozy hall with candlelights,although its not a romantic night! I would prefer having candles all over the place lighting up and creating the aura! People tend to open up more easily in dim light! rather than the brightness ,so to let everyone be comfortable and relaxed ,this would be the  perfect ambience.

For the Menu! It would be an ambrosia with the real nectar as a drink! 🙂

My guests of honour shall be arriving soon and here is their list as I welcome them on board with a fresh bouquet of wonderful exotic flowers!

MY 1st GUEST would be my Lord! without whom I cannot think of any occasion or ceremony! So for you all ! He is Krishna! According to Bhagavata Purana, Krishna was born without a sexual union, but by divine “mental transmission” from the mind of Vasudeva into the womb of Devaki.He is considered to be an incarnation of Vishnu, the Ultimate hindu God. All art forms that are found in India whether it is  dance ,paintings,scriptures,prose,literature are inspired by the life and divine presence of Krishna.His life is full of inspiration which if understood gives a clarity in our thoughts and living.

He can be a true conversationalist,as he is a good diplomat has the knack of twisting words to form rephrasing and an everknown statuette of  love and divinity. Being a prince ,he has his own charms and as an eternal musician ,his flute shall mesmerize the other guests and me like anything. A perfect one to be with  in all sense!

MY 2nd guest would be THE SINGING NIGHTINGALE OF INDIA- Lata Mangeshkar .She has a golden voice never to be forgotten. An evening with her would surely add a beautiful aura to the atmosphere ,for music shall be eternal then . Lata Mangeshkar is an Indian singer, and occasional music-composer. She is one of the best-known and most respected playback singers in India. Mangeshkar’s career started in 1942 and has spanned over six and a half decades.

My 3rd prominent guest is INDIRA GANDHI,the most powerful woman and the first Prime Minister  of India.She  remains as the world’s second longest serving female Prime Minister as of 2012and the only one  to have declared state of emergency in order to ‘rule by decree’ ..A multi faceted personality,who was deprived of a normal childhood due to the political activities of her parents,Jawaharlal Nehru and Kamla Nehru..It would be interesting to have her as a special guest ,where she interacts openly as how has her country changed and the world too in these years.Had she been there what would have been the condition and the difference in  India now?

My 4th special guest is William Wordsworth. The famous Romantic poet of all times.Wordsworth was Britain’s Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850.He married four times and its interesting to know what would have been his psychological conditions when he went through all the traumas of losing his wife and then again falling back in love.The zeal of moving on and the zest to live carries on such artists and writers to create historical creations… The Daffodils who would be the cherry on the top to hear from him. His inspirations,depressions,complexes and the homesickness he had when he went to Germany would sure be a delight to listen to alongwith what triggered him more to write!

My 5th guest would be Emperor Ashoka,who has been a significant ruler an d the most powerful kings of India from his kingdom spread upto the boundaries outside India from Afghanistan to Bangladesh!.He fought innumerable wars,and and is known to have flooded the paths by bloodshed in the historical War of kalinga.What transformed him into embracing Buddhism will be so touching to hear in his own words.The incidents and experiences shall be worth listening and inspiring for anyone who has a  spiritual bent of mind.

The combination would be a exhilarating one,, Gandhi having a world around her,with the Majestic Emperor analysing what would have been his place ,had he been born now in this present age…Wordsworth enjoying his own words, Lata to immerse the occasion with her melodious melody   ..and above all the Lord himself…. having a look at the scenario happening! His creations.all different in every respect in front of him.

WEEKLY WRITING CHALLENGE- SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT


Challenges always fascinate me!The ones which have a positive effect and are not harmful to anyone.Accepting challenges just for the sake of fun,thrill  or adventure isn’t my cup of tea.But the ones where I need to struggle,put in my efforts,improve,excel,learn or perform are always welcome ,for they give me the sense of proving myself to me.

These days  I am getting obsessed with the idea of taking part in  new challenges every week. Not that I wasn’t aware of them,but nevertheless I never felt the urge to look at those.

I am more than happy in keeping myself immersed in my world of poems,where I can think,dream,breathe and write poetry on whatever I feel .

So fresh and free it feels!

As I accepted the challenge of writing in this weekly challenge I had no idea what was  I going to post. For being completely different, there are various topics to ponder  on,but I felt I should have the passion and the feel to write about it as I have for my poems. Because without the passion and the love for my lines,I won’t be able to deliver anything appropriately. Might be the post will be a very good in technicality but my heart won’t be with it.

So I just decided to let myself go in and have few words exchanged with you all directly in a talk where I just emoted what I felt at this moment of time !

Sometimes in life we tend to get impressed by the challenges that lie ahead on a particular path.The challenges make the path more colorful and interesting. It proves to be a changing point or a makeover of ourself . Often challenges involve a change in the way we have been perceiving life and our surroundings sometimes along with a change in place and position too.

And we as humans,always fear the change. The comfort zone within which we breathe and live is for us the complete world and beyond which we cannot comprehend anything.

For growth of self , in terms of imagination or success in the materialistic life , we have to accept the change,that is we have to accept the challenge of changing and accepting the new one. I must say,winning a challenge is not important then,because the moment we accept any challenge of any form and be a part of it,we have already won the fear of losing it and overcome the hurdle that kept us pulling back .

To depict a role in a new play on a different stage and different artistes proves our worth and the faith we have in ourselves.

Changes are inevitable in life and accepting them and going along with the flow makes us easier to understand and explore new ideas and thoughts.Going with the flow doesn’t mean just flowing without resisting even if it is wrong and it doesn’t either mean to give up, instead it is the subtle  and composed way in which  we accept our new challenge.

For we learn to swim in tides that flow in opposite direction,the resistance and the thrust of the flow makes us more stronger and we strive hard to maintain ourselves to remain afloat.The nature of pressure and challenges on us transform us into a more  better human being.

Here it means a chance which has been offered to you,or a path which is completely new , has several difficult stairs and bends, but with  the most desirable or fruitful results,we decide to walk through it.

Unlike blogging, Life outside this blogging world isn’t that simple where all are welcomed with a big hug and supported and cheered when felt low . This world of blogging specially WordPress is an island in the ocean of our outside world where all are  received with warmth and showered tremendous love,which makes a person resinstate his confidence, personality,likes ,passion and the talent he possesses naturally.Hence in Life whenever you face  a challenge ,just remember the WP,the thought  will bring a smile instantly and you will win…

Like this beautiful plant which humbly bowed down,

In the times of a storm,

to let the strong winds pass away,

without losing  its actual form…
