Thought thought all the time, not a word to jot...


(Caution: Author is developing a style to write seriously on lighter notes. Please don’t take this piece lightly!)

These days’ I am feeling quite privileged having a state, some greats call as, the Writer’s Block! As the Webster of the Era, widely known as Wikipedia, suggests Writer’s Block is a condition in which an author fails to produce new work. This also relates to the condition when an Author couldn’t recognize his own work’s worth and underestimates it.

I am regular guy learning to write pieces; comparing me with the ones who have proved themselves in professional writing is far from imagination. But the condition I’m in right now has at least something to do with the big words, the Writer’s Block.

CONDITION: I’m just not able to sit calm, sip coffee, have some water, eat pistachios, crack nuts, listen to some music, and write some piece! Hmmmm…it’s not though very untypical of me. It had happened a lot many times in recent past, but this time it’s different. Other times, I had problems ideating on the topics. This time I have zillions (use of Hyperbole) of ideas, only thing I lack is mood to sit calm, sip coffee…..and write some piece!

CURE: Had I known it, I would have applied it!!! But still, on a general note there may be a few curative measures, like:

1. Write some crap (please, unlike me, don’t publish it; it may ruin your ‘popularity’, if any)

2. Read as much as you can. Now this is one serious measure. The more you read, better you evolve. Reading will not get you out of your non-creative mode, but also open to you newer and wider dimensions. Participating in Blog-Communities' Contest may do wonders!

3. Do jot down the ideas you have while in the Block-condition; they may help you building stories later when you are back on track.

4. Do what you love doing! If you love to travel, get your backpack ready. If you ride, like me, get your bike done! If you are in love, that may be a reason behind the Block; get some time for yourself dude!

5. Meditate, if you can. It's proven to to brighten the subconscious which actually helps to be creative!

6. Try to to sit calm, sip coffee, have some water, eat pistachios, crack nuts, listen to some music, and write some piece! (Yeah that was a cliché, you got right mann!)

HELP: Yess, I need some serious help from the patient souls who have read this piece till now. Do share your Writer’s Block condition and how you fought with it' it will not only help me to write better, but also others too.


(PS: Author of this article never claimed himself a Writer. It’s just his self-admiration mode that gears him into comparing his feeling with the greater community of Writers!)

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

A Day at Global Vipassana Pagoda (A Photo Story)

What I like most about the cities we live in is the places we generally not aware about. Like the case of one of its own kind Butterfly Park of Thane, which is at stone throw distance from my place and I came to knew about it a few months back only. Then there is this Pagoda – another one of its own kind – world renowned and still not known to many city dwellers. We visited this place to take pictures and let me confirm it, we were stoned by the colors and the mystical sky (check out the Photo Story at the bottom of the post)
Located at Northern most corner of the Megacity of Mumbai, across the Gorai creek, Global Vipassana Pagoda is a meditation hall built out of gratitude to the Buddha, his teaching and the community of monks practicing his teaching (Wikipedia).  The Pagoda is also known for being built on the world's largest stone dome without any supporting pillars, at height of ~29 metres and external diameter 94.82-97.46 m. It is, thus, twice the size of the Gol Gumbaz Dome in…

AshtaVinayaka Yatra with Bisons

(This post has already appeared on Bisons Ride Hard website, to check out click here) Ever since I read Vinni’s post on last year’s Ride of Faith, I have been waiting for this year’s ride. The day I came to know about the Bison’s schedule, I started preparing, until I realized I don’t have leaves. Few days left to the ride, multi-reminders received and I was like, will I be able to make it? Something happened, meetings deferred, jobs got completed and I was able to ask my boss for leaves; and, who can deny you leaves that too for a Ride of Faith, Ride to AshtaVinayaka! I felt blessed that day, and now after the hard ride we had, I know I’m blessed! We are a nation of faith, which plays an immensely large role in our lives, being homely, officially or on the tar. Though Bisons have started riding hard the day they first met at BKC on a fine Sunday evening of July 23, 2011 at BKC; official announcement was made on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chautrthi, Shukla Paksha, Bhadra maas, i.e. Se…
