Been a while… hasn’t it?

It’s been a while since I last posted anything on this blog. Well, to be honest I’ve been busy with stuff, especially concerning my book (which is done editing and copyrighted, so Publishers, you may inbox me). However, in those last few hectic months, I went on a small weekend trip to Konkan with my family. It wasn’t the best of trips cause I was sick, but it did give me a chance to click some pictures on my much neglected camera. I’ve been so focused on my books, I almost forgot how fun it is to just look through the viewfinder at the beauty of the world.

Here are some of the clicks. I was a little under the weather so couldn’t click as many as I would have liked, but I’m happy with what I got. What do you think?

Dear Sangh Parivar

With an abrasively right wing party now in power – our country is at a crossroads of sorts – longingly stretching its arms towards “development” while clinging to dangerously medieval beliefs.

“Pseudo-secularism” seems to be the new catchphrase for people who’ve only recently learnt how to spell.

Let’s break it down:

  • pseudo : (adj) – not genuine; sham; insincere
  • secular :(adj) – not connected with religious or spiritual matters

‘Secular’ in the western context has traditionally meant a detachment of the state from religious affairs. Owing to India’s amazing ethnic composition, our Constitution Makers chose an interesting middle ground – disfavour towards, yet acknowledgement of all religions, offering protection to minorities.

Today “pseudo-secular” (and its infantile cousin “sickular”) is thrown at everyone who rejects the notion of Hindu…

Pretentiousness at it’s finest in a Symbolism lost to Words

Transforming paradoxes into metaphorical lunacies
to unburden the staggering mind into deterioration
and flinging faeces at the flimsy formations of information
that create all that might be and may not
for all that might be or may not is naught
but complete absurdities of the nature of illusions
amidst the passages that bridge the realms of the multiverse
to decode the binary codecs of life and death.

Existential Decomposition

Fractured Moonlight falls upon the lonely tomb
of he whose name no one shall ever remember
For time hath eroded his existence from the very stone
that carved unto itself his name, his fame.
The Doer of Good or Evil unknown
lies nameless in his Decomposed Coffin.
And here we sit dreaming of Eternal Glory.

Cosmic Fallacy

Blinded by the greatness of the radiant sun,
The stars shy away every morning as,
The moon hides behind the shoulder of the horizon.
Yet, what astounds the people is not,
The astral beauty of the cosmos,
Nor it’s functionality.
It is the breached privacy of those
They deem worthy of fame.

– Ronit Jadhav
