Words deserve the limelight

I watch too many dramas but I am most mesmerised when the character narrates his/her thoughts about situations and life overall. For a moment after watching such scenes, I feel I should document my life using pictures and videos – the values I have, hardships, my ways to cope with it, my dreams, the way I converse with my friends, the topics I converse on, my nerdy side, the good thoughts I have and much more.

I obviously never do that except I journal. I know it’s an art to picture a scene in mind and implement the act exactly the way it is envisioned. The intended vibe manages to reach out the audience.

Storytellers are beautiful.

They explore their imagination and play around with words to express it.
They’re not simply talking, they’re narrating; we get lost in their world.
The form of expression is insignificant. Writing, saying it out loud or exhibit via act using fictional characters.

When I read books, I don’t need visuals to imagine what is happening or a voice to understand the tone. The narration and the texts takes me where the writer intends to (obviously not all have the skill to do that).
I have travelled to places and spaces just by reading.

That’s the magic of words and storytelling skills.


Book Lovers

There are two categories of book lovers –
1) Highly possessive
2) Not much possessive; usually willing to share them.

Belonging to the latter category, I never shied away from sharing my books.
I get a satisfied feeling when the opposite person loves the book I’ve shared.
Of course, I have my check points to confirm whether the person I am lending to will take good care of it or not.

I, myself have read so many mystery thrillers purely based on lending arrangements.

During my internship days, I was once assigned a client whose Director loved reading books; so much so that he had a shelf filled with books of varied genres in one of the office rooms. I felt ecstatic when I managed to get the approval of the Director for borrowing the books. Train journeys and books have a special connection.

However, if you visit someone’s place next time and spot a shelf of books, be careful.
Some don’t like even a page turned of their book.
