I am not what I am…. but the dream you always had…
They Lie when they say Lightning Doesn’t hit the Same Place Twice… or Thrice…
I had been trying to finish off the old stories I started with and then I remembered about this, So I thought of having a fresh start. A thought came to my mind and a an image flipped through my eyes. The result – a short story. A story about our decisions, about the times we just followed our instincts and were lead astray by them.
You just need one more reason to be happy.
Yesterday I was planning to blog about the new government policy about data storage and encryption. By the time I was able to type something it was late night and I didn’t want to write something about it half asleep. So I thought lets take it up today. I normally do not bash up anybody, thing or thought, well coz its personal. but this time somebody in their mind thought about it and then thought to impose it on all of us .. Whoa.. it was crazy brave of that guy.
Day 1 has you always on a high and that’s why this post was written at 2 am. I hope to keep up with the active blogging challenge. Read Active Blogger Initiative – Innaku Durgashtami to get more details about the challenge and to understand about few different ways I screw up my happiness 😉
I like listening to songs which are soulful and then I finally end up listening to them so much that I can hear them in my mind and then I am done with the song for ever.
Recently I watched Malayalam move Premam. After hearing a lot about it from friends, I had huge expectations but somehow I felt that I am not gonna like it. Before I proceed further, I should say that I am not a big fan of movies with college theme or based entirely on those one liners which are good but the storyline is nil or those short story movies bloated to fill the 3 hrs. mark. Also I have never liked Nivin Pauly’s acting, he fits in certain roles but that’s not coz of his acting skills, rather the credit should go to film crew.
Disclaimer: I am not qualified enough to make a remark on any cinema/actor, rather its just an personal remark from a cinema lover.
This is part of the Team Up initiative but rather different from the previous attempts of collaboration. This is an on the fly collaborative story creation. These were the points to keep in mind before the action.
- There is no subject, and participants are free to divert the story based on their interests
- One participant starts it with few lines and the other participant continues it.
- There is no specific end to the story and it’s based on participant interest.
You could also try this with fellow bloggers or people interested in story creation. The story was done in Malayalam but I am also providing a translation in English.
Color coding has been used to show the contribution by different authors to the story.
This is fiction and to be enjoyed as such. This is part of the regular series – Team Up. I wrote up the English story while the Malayalam poem was written by another budding blogger. I also added the transliteration in Malayalam so that people can read it in its original language too.
Sometimes you need to close your eyes and dream, for the dream is more beautiful than
