EDITOR’S DESK

The past stood witness to my present uncertainty while future was evasive. And it is this uncertainty of the present and the evasiveness of times to come that gives birth to poetry and poetic words. The standstill time stays put, the moment doesn’t pass, yet the day is gone. In gathering these moments the life is gone. What gives us a reason to wrap up these bits into one whole is our dreams, the reason to live. Dreams, even while staying silent, speak volumes. Give words to your dreams and they come alive!

Turning the pages of life I find some words half-baked, some half-erased, others half-written. I choose to tell those tales now.
I too have grumbled at bitter loss, have experienced the pain of being a lost winner, my eyes have had tear behind laughter and lips trying to hide pangs of pain. Yet I always believe one should hold on and keep trying to string the fallen beads. In the end, the story of what has been will connect to what will be, though the moorings of the past will never be snapped!

HAPPY READING…AND LET YOUR MINDS BE FULL OF THOUGHTS AND PENS OVERFLOWING WITH WORDS…AMEN!

Penguin Random House hosted Love is in the Stories event at Anti-Social, Social in Hauz Khas Village on 14th February with the much coveted authors of the day – Ravinder Singh, Durjoy Datta, Bhaavna Arora, and Sudeep Nagarkar.
Prior to the arrival of the guests, the audience took part in various contests and activates, and participated in talks on love and friendship, and shared their many treasured experiences. The evening began with the authors interacting with their fans, Ravinder Singh taking the lead by dancing to a Punjabi song.
Ravinder Singh talked about the eternal qualities of love, on how love endures hardships to triumph at the end. He went on to explain love based on the characters of his novel. He said that love is not limited to us humans alone; love transcends all know forms and extends to even the inanimate objects.
Durjoy Datta talked about his own experiences on love, the many strategies he employed to be closer to his loved one much to the delight of his many fans in the audience. He said that the minute is got to know girls, he learned to listen. He also went on to explain the phase of his life when he was depressed of loneliness. He confesses to not know how to court women, though the gathered had a different opinion.
Bhaavna Arora talked about the rather mischievous nature of love. When you are single, she said, variety is the spice of life. But when you are married, imagination is. Make out on the terrace, in the elevator; Waste not a naughty thought but cherish love, she said, as it is the most natural attribute that one is born with.
Sudeep Nagarkar when asked whether love is an extension of friendship insisted that every relationship begin in friendship. Trust is critical for the love to sustain, he said. He pointed out that life, as you know it, is very unlike a Yash Chopra movie. You learn just the same from breakups as you do from falling in love, that you cannot have a definition for love or friendship. It is what it is and happens when it does.
The authors then answered questions from the audience and shared their experiences before announcing the winner of Valentine’s Couple contest. Love certainly was in the air at Love is in the Stories.
