Losing Faith

Losing faith, in life and it's ways
Losing faith, one incident is all it takes
And then you question what it's all about
You wonder if its worth the pain
When you have nothing, there is nothing to lose, and therefore, nothing at stake
Too many questions, none are answered
Too many questions
Losing faith, in life and its ways
One little incident, one small, minor incident, that will push you off the track
One incident is all it takes
Losing faith, in life and its ways

Flies, bloodthirsty
Buzzing in the background
Tormenting - Annoyed,
The traveler
Wearies of the road
And puts himself
Below the very next car
To screech down the
Desert highway

Mishika said…

This is veryyyyyy nice. :) But you know how I lost my faith? By watching American Pie. Reveals so much about guys, I lost my faith. So now Mallika's the only one whom you have to get disgusted at. I'm DONE.
But excellent post.

Your comment just made me laugh..!

Not all guys are like's too much exaggerated.. hahaha..!
Mishika said…
@srishti: thats some relief. Agreed that all guys are screwed up in some way or the other..but aint that common to the entire human race?? I mean to come to think of it, i think i'm quite messed up too. If you can feel all emotions, you are bound to screw up. Im guessing Prasad would agree.

P.s. Cant decide what sucks more-stuck in bed for over a week, or writing this using touchscreen!!!
pRasad said…

I have to agree :)

Don't ever lose faith...not in Yourself atleast.

No, I am not sharing my views on (not) being committed. Yes, this is one of my (vain) attempts to keep this blog alive. No, I have not made any effort of writing in the past few months even though I had all the time. Yes, that is certainly not a very good thing. So, this is a book review. Well, not really a review, just a few words here and there since I finally managed the onerous task of finishing reading this mostly boring book. Just a few things that will stay with me. Ok fine. Yes, this is a book review.

A brief background about how I came to read this book. My dear friend for almost six years now gifted me this this Valentine's Day (much to my surprise as I did not expect him to actually take into consideration my all-time love for Eat, Pray, Love) and hoped this would give me some insight on our 'future'. Marriage was always on the cards albeit things have been extremely rocky lately. This was supposedly my anchor to rough…

Book Review - The Temple Bar Woman (✩✩✩)

Received this review copy from Writers Melon.

This book had all the qualities of being a 4 star, save the ending.
But I will get to that later.

The Temple Bar Woman is a story of a young, innocent Radha aka Rani aka Radhika Chaudhary who struggles to avenge her honour by punishing her rapist - Vikram Pratap Singh, a young politician and a spoilt brat - and his friends who gang-raped her for standing up to their shenanigans. The narrative traces the protagonist's journey from 1999, when she was just another girl ready to embrace life with open arms, till 2017, when she has become the Chief minister of Agria Pradesh.

Radha, a teacher in her father's school, is brutally gang-raped by three men and thrown at the mercy of Habiba Bi, the wicked and shrewd 'malkin' of the brothel - The Temple Bar. What follows is a series of incidents which makes Habiba Bi and Radha/Rani come together as an unparalleled force to overthrow their common enemy, Vikram Singh, and his father, Bharat S…

About Time!

Hello Lovely People (some of you are still reading this, I hope?)
Anyhow, realising how my efforts for reviving this blog have failed miserably over the last few years, I have decided to make this platform more than just a personal blog. I plan to post my book/movie reviews from hereon.

I managed to read 41 books in 2017 and have already read 13 in 2018.
I have become supremely active on my bookstagram and goodreads page.
I am reading and reviewing books like a pro!
Makes sense to use that impetus to revive this dying soul?

That's it for now.
I will be uploading reviews every 2-3 days from now on. Hopefully that will motivate me enough to keep this blog alive even otherwise.

P.S. This July/August will be the 10th anniversary of this blog. :D
