You ask me to show humility Bow down before the Almighty It is my quest for excellence That you’ve mistaken for impudence The worst breach of piety Is succumbing to mediocrity
You call God by different names Then go on to play those filthy games Games of ‘My God is the best’ ‘My faith is superior to the rest’ This is what I intensely detest Wake up now and introspect
You sing in God’s praise everyday For success and recognition you pray And the minute calamity strikes You blame the Almighty in a trice Time now to accept this reality You are your own responsibility

With every book I feel I grow So much to learn, so much to know I’ve travelled the world on these pages Through different cultures, times and ages Engrossed in some awesome creations I've run the gamut of emotions Known characters of every kind Peeked inside the human mind Seen the past , gone in history Tried to unlock future’s mystery Attempted to fathom …

An Introduction

Hi..well I guess I am supposed to give an introduction but I really don't know how to descibe myself or my blog..because tomorrow I may learn something new and the definitions may change..still this is what comes to my mind right now..

A li'l good, a li'l bad A li'l grown up, a li'l childish heart Looking for shapes in a cloud Heard a message, clear and loud The shape changes in an instant Nothing stays, only change is constant Don't get me wrong, i am not fickle I am just complicatedly simple But isn't it the case with everything? Who can claim to be all-knowing? Therein lies the joy of living The endless quest of discovering So in my quest to discover further I decided to become a blogger..
