Today I came across Sakshi’s blog while surfing around…and I was impressed by her writing, which showed a maturity way more than her age. Her personal story…the Himalayan Chronicles…had me hooked so much that I read the same post thrice, just to experience the romantic thrill. You write amazing Neona… 🙂
Apart from that, the day was a bit marred by some disappointments by people whom I chose to trust as friend too quickly I think. I hope I am wrong or what I thought was friendship was my illusion. Anyways, the week has been tiring and hoping to finish the rest two days quickly, which I know ain’t going to happen 😉 .
I had started reading ‘Curfewed Nights’ by Basharat Peer, which is a reporter’s take on the issues of Kashmir, who is originally from the place. It was Swati’s heartbreaking poem which induced me to purchase the book. And I found many of the descriptions in the book replicated in the recently released movie Haider. Still haven’t managed to complete it, but whatever I’ve managed to read shows a heartbreaking story of a beautiful place and happy, satisfied people changed to a horror story. Recently, while surfing internet, also came across the pictures of ISIS terrorizing common people. I am ashamed to call them humans. How can one person do such things to others. Religion, which should be an intensely personal subject, has turned people into monsters.
