What makes your day?



 Last Tuesday, the traffic was not that irritating, and the people were not that insensible as they generally are on my way to home. I was surprised and happy that the drive from office was smooth with no need for sudden brakes, and enjoyed a short drive with my favorite songs. Infact, the entire evening went well.

Later, I reflected about the day and realized that it was not the good  traffic  but my heart was on a rejuvenation mode. I subconsciously ignored the ruckus of the road as I was happy and satisfied at the end of the productive but a hectic day. I didn't have time for lunch but never felt that pang of hunger. It makes you happy when your efforsts yield that desired output. The results of my efforts made that day.

This reflection originated the idea for the post that what are those six things that can make one's day so much so that he or she would do anything on that day if asked for....(ofcourse upto certain limits :) 


Productive work-I have already talked about it. This one tops the list.

Good Book: I should not say the end of the book but a well written section of the book can make your day. Most of the books have that chapter that you connect with and feel happy as you find similarities with your thoughts or life, or if you find something new that you didn't know before. You may not be able to explain that feeling but from inside you becone very happy.

Sporting Activity: If you win something in any competion or in any sport, that feeling of winning gives a new energy in thoughts. It gives the self confidence that you can do anything in this world, and nothing can beat you.

Good Food: Perhaps, sometimes it is true. if you getnto eat the delicious cuisine, you become happy  , no matter how much diet conscious you would be, but it dies fill yp your belly and heart.

Family/Friends time: Yes , if everybody is meeting after a long time. I think this one is due for most of the people because of the COVID time. Spending time with people you like gives you happy moments and makes your day.

Appreciation: If somebody appreciates your work then also  it does give you good moments to cherish and your entire day goes well. If you plan to appreciate someone do that favor in the morning.

Book Review: Mythological Monologues


Mythological monologues is one of those eclectic books which can be in your bookshelves for a very long time. The readers, from any generation, who would have an interest in mythological characters would find it fascinating to read this one by the Author: Purba Chakraborty. This book is a collection of poetry based on reverend characters of the Mahabharatha and the Ramayana.

One thing I liked about this book is that it not only depicts the celebrated and famous characters of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana but also illustrates the emotions and journey of the unsung heroes of these epics. Ahalya from Ramayana, Chitrangada and Satyavati from Mahabaratha are such examples. 

Although I was aware of most of those characters but it was really fascinating to know about them in the form of a monologue. It depicted the hard work and the research that the author had done to portray these characters in the book. An  apt usage of metaphors and similies helped me understand the true emotion of the characters. In some places, I became happy as sometimes it felt that I was again watching the Netflix series: Dharmakshetra, but that series was only based on Mahabharata characters, and this had from Ramayana as well.

Some of my favourite lines from the book:

In the darkness of absence

The night jasmine silently blooms


And then this one


Leaving behind my Shyam in Vrindavan, 

The melody of His flute in my heart,

 His Divine Name entwined with mine 

Together we will be called 

Radhe Shyam till the end of time.

This is the first poetry book that I have read, and I am happy to realize that the thought in each poem can be the central theme of an independent novel in itself. It shows the deep clarity of thoughts that the author had about the topic.

I recommend this book to all the readers who love mythological tales or want to know more about the respected and not-so-famous characters of these epics.
