If I know today Is my last day,
I’d do things a little differently,
I’ll live each moment slowly
I’ll rise before the sun;
and hear the echoes of the Azaan,
the chirping of the birds,
the melody of the wind,
the trance of the clouds,
with a cup of tea in my hand,
and will watch the slow and everlasting glory of the Sun
I’ll walk on wet dew drops fallen on thy soft grass barefooted,
I’ll taste those dews of heaven from my burning eyes,
I’ll sip those dews of heaven from my warm-parted lips,
I’ll run on this heaven so slowly,
cherishing every step,
I’ll run until my lungs burst for breath,
I’ll run until my legs won’t work,
I’ll steal every step until I fall on the ground,
I will feel those wet dew drops,
from my body through my bones to my soul,
shaking and walking it up, telling
not just to feel but live the moment
I’ll sit the whole afternoon ashore the beach, on wet sand
cherishing the cold wind and the golden rays of sun,
dipping my feet in the water, travelling the whole world
whilst reading my favorite book
Late afternoon, hand in hand long walk on the beach,
leaving nothing but our footsteps,
slowly fading away by the slow tides of water,
standing beside her, hand in hand, breath with breath,
hands wrapped around her waist,
nose sipping into her hair,
lips touching her warm neck,
my life would’ve been incomplete without her
from the moment I saw her till my last breath, telling
how much I adore her, cherish her, Love her, ALWAYS
with blazing eyes following her sparkling eyes,
with endless wonder and with infinite love,
watching the Dying Sun…
Whenever I listen or read the word, Classic, I always am covered with a feeling of abhorrence. I have never ever read a classic worth reading and the classics never gave me a feeling of appreciation until now. Now I understand why they called classics a classic. I cannot say that I’m profoundly spiritually affected by The Prophet. All I can say is that it brought me close to the literal meaning of love, giving, pain, pleasure, passion, friendship, life and many more.
Kahlil Gibran took each of the topic and gave them a slightest touch of religion. Whether you consider these prose as absurd or life changing, they are truly a master piece and worth praising.
Even though most of the things were way over my head but those things which I did understand are something unordinary or ‘next level’ I felt and learned what I read and it was a new experience worth having. Every single thing was beautifully illustrated with a power of strong words which Kahlil Gibran select. They really had a strong vibe on me. The words, hold me closer to the books.
If someone doesn’t understand the deep and literal meaning of the prose of Kahlil Gibran then its ultimately not their fault cuz, one cannot miss something they never had. One can never love something or someone they never felt for. One can most definitely not understand something they don’t have any experience of.
“You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”
Once Paulo Coelho said, ‘if I write more than one book over the same idea then people will, of course, read and love my book but they will get tired of me and they won’t learn anything new which is the most important reason of be writing.’ I think writes like him are born only once in every century.
John Green, no doubt is an exceptional writer but alas! All his books have the same repetitive idea. I enjoyed Paper towns but I didn’t love it like other John Green work but i loved the title, though. It was fun and adventurous at one point and pretty boring and Margo Roth Spiegelmanic, cuz John Green used her name again and again that it was pretty irritating, at other point. The story as well as the writing of John Green didn’t need any introduction as it is and always have been the same as say, Looking for Alaska or An Abundance of Katherines.
The characters are what makes Paper Towns so intriguing. I never found this book absolutely boring, just slow at parts. What makes this book interesting and exhilarating is that in the start and in the end it is deep and has many different level of humans and ways of reasoning. A truly compelling and thoughtful book. But I was desperately and utterly disappointed in the end cuz in the whole story, Q thought of Margo as an un-human alienist or out of this word kind of amazing girl but in the end Margo wasn’t what I expected or what John Green wanted me to expect. The whole book just so overly put the level of Margo Roth Spiegelman so high that I was frustrated in the end. But it was true that:
Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will,” she says.
“But then again, if you don’t imagine, nothing ever happens at all.”
All in all, even with the deep and literal part of the book, it was a quick read but still I wasn’t impressed. The plot was weak and I didn’t like Margo Roth Spiegelman, Quentin. I only loved the only character in the book worth praising and who really kept the book fun going and he was, ITWASAKIDNEYINFECTION. Whenever the book was about to get boring, Bloody Ben took it from the bottom and took it to the next level. I really loved his character.
Ibrahim ibn Adham, ascetic Sufi saint, finished his prayers in his room and saw two angels sitting in the corner, writing something on a piece of paper. He approached them and asked them, “What are you writing?” with tender curiosity.
“We are writing the names, in the list, of those people who loves Allah” one of the angel replied.
“So can you tell me whether my name is on the list or not?” the Sufi saint asked politely.
After checking the list from top to bottom they replied, “It, certainly, is not”
The Sufi saint, strangely enough, wasn’t even a bit disappointed or dishearten. Instead he replied with a warm smile across his lips and rather enthusiastically, “Then you should write my name, in the list, of those people who Loves the creature of Allah”
The next day the angels arrived again in the room where the Sufi was bowing in the glory of Allah and were writing something on a piece of paper. The Sufi came near to them and asked, “What are you writing?”
They replied, “We are writing the name, in the list, of those people whom Allah loves”
The saint asked them, “So can you tell me whether my name is on the list or not?”
The angels answered, “Ibrahim ibn Adham, your name is on top of the list”
Legends never die they always stay alive in our memories and in the hearts of those who love them. Born in Kentucky on January 17th 1942, Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. Clay began his training when he was 12 with an odd twist in fate. His bike was stolen, and Ali told a police officer that he wanted to beat up the thief. “Well, you better learn how to fight before you start challenging people” that’s when Ali began his training in local boxing club.

It was definitely not a romantic book. Consider it as an obsessive book. It was a light and fun book. It wasn’t what I expected cuz I didn’t expect anything from this book that’s why I’m not disappointed and I’m glad I didn’t expect anything. Half of the book was composed of football and the other half consists of Nikki which is the ex-wife of the protagonist, Pat Peoples.
The whole book revolves around Pat reuniting with his ex-wife after the apart time gets over. Pat spends eight and a half months in mental neural asylum cuz he was considered dangerous and mad after he caught his ex-wife cheating and he beat the shit out of his ex-wife former lover and current husband which was a colleague of Pat in school where they taught English and History respectively. Anyways, since he left the “mad place” he changed his life according to the way Nikki likes. Like losing weight, having a perfect body, learning how to dance and bla bla.
And yes there is another character, Tiffany which is also like Pat as they both lose their other half in some tragic way. And hence as they both had spent some time in the “mad place” one way or another so they do understand each other very well. And whether I tell you or not, you pretty much had the idea with the title The silver linings playbook, that in the end everything will sort out with Pat and his silver lining cuz he’s an optimistic person and he views his life as a movie and he also believes that his life will end with a happy ending.
Yeah that’s pretty much it. All in all, the book was boring and at some point dry where the football part comes. In short, Thank God it’s over.
