Have you found your “Calling”?

The easiest thing to dish out as well as the toughest thing to receive is advice. For we do keep our hands closed tight, by holding on to the same old beliefs and imaginary feathers of our own crown.

So how do you open up that hand to receive abundance of happiness and contentment, while the closed hand hurts the one holding as well as the stuff being held?

You have to open up one finger at a time, loosen the grip and gently convince to let go of certain things, while still holding on to the thread of life and good things.

That’s how the book by Priya Kumar “The Calling”, calls out to the inner self that has become dormant in the chase of materialistic success at the cost of life itself. By unraveling the knots one at a time, and also by tying the right knots to lengthen and strengthen the beauty and miracle of life.

Life is short to learn everything by experiencing personally. Hence take time to learn from the experience of others. The book speaks of experience of one guy, who could be identified as ourselves in some aspect. But his life takes a blow, bursts through pits and blooms into a promising future. A leaf or two from his life might help in enriching the lessons of experience.

A simple narration, smooth flow, slow and strong introduction of the characters, one at a time, makes the book an easy and happy read. The flow of writing allows you to finish the book in one sitting, whereas the content of the book needs chewing for the healthy digestion and absorption of the profound thoughts, which could be life altering, when taken up at right dosage.

The tough and serious ideas are laced with humor and wrapped up in the finest of sugar coating, for the intake of ideas happen even before the realisation hits hard. The narration is vivid and brings life to the story on its own.

Though it may be argued that it’s old wine in new bottle, this new bottle is comfortable to hold and a pleasure to consume. And it also beautifully serves as a healthy dose of reminder to focus on the very purpose of life in an alluring way.

The book has a feel-good attitude and provokes your thoughts or at the very least brush away the negativity while spreading warmth and cheer. The life altering suggestions are spelt in a very practical and easy-to-follow way.

So go grab your copy of the book and find your calling and step up few more rungs in the ladder of life. Happy reading!

Bound by Shyness

I’ve written my letters for you
I had been ever shy to post them
I had waited for the time to be right
I had been waiting for you to ask..

And the time ticked away
And I kept re-reading my letters
At last I bound them to post,
And I got the invitation from you..

Of all the guesses I made
The only one that seems to be,
Most accurate and appropriate is,
It won’t make a good wedding gift!
