Solo Artists- Music by Children

Solo Artists- Music by Children

Children have incorporated varied interests in the early school days from dancing, singing, music, sports in their academic year. The schools have introduced this into their curriculum so that children develop all-round personality apart from their regular education. I recently attended a children’s orchestra which left me quite impressed with the children’s performance. They performed as solo artists as well as with SOI (Symphony Orchestra of India) They have been coached under the special music training program. The NCPA Special…

Candlelight

Candlelight

  Candlelight begins with a spark. It is the chemical ignition of energy produced by mixing fuel and oxygen resulting in heat and flame. This flame represents our source of creation and our inner light. Our soul. Candlelight is an important part of our rituals in all cultures and festivals around the world. Light is the symbol for Christmas, the light of life at Easter. The Festival of Lights in India kindles the light of wisdom in every heart. The Festival of Lights in Thailand, with floating candles…

Book Review- Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod

Book Review- Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod

Your client must go to jail tonight, the judge said, as he picked up his pen to formalise the pronouncement cancelling Atul’s bail. Atul’s heart skipped a beat, the blood rushing about in anguish as he sank down on his chair, discredited and shamed. Atul hadn’t been as prepared for this; so when reality struck, it did so with a paralyzing force. The above are opening lines of ‘Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod. These opening lines lure us into the…

4 Apps That Will Make You Productive

Isn’t living in the age of apps the best? These days, you can forget about doing the actual work and let various apps on your multitude of internet-connected devices do it for you. Your fridge can make a grocery list for you, your washing machine can tell the difference between the kinds of cotton and the linens, and the apps you use for writing can help you transform the world with an idea.

A review of Nature’s Gift to Humanity

A review of Nature’s Gift to Humanity

Nature’s Gift to Humanity: Fowl Art II is a collection of prose by Mary Rensberry. She truly feels that in seeking the truth we define ourselves. And in finding the truth we discover ourselves. The following are some lovely quotes from her book In seeking the truth, we define ourselves. In finding the truth we discover ourselves.   Observe reactions and behaviours Living in nature with full conscience Is living with and in God.   Sometimes making that last leap of…

Shakespeare’s First Folio found on Scottish island

Shakespeare’s First Folio found on Scottish island

In 2016, the world will pay tribute to William Shakespeare. I found an interesting article on ‘The Bard’s’ 400 death anniversary…   London: In a monumental literary find, a copy of William Shakespeare’s original First Folio, one of the world’s most sought-after books containing 36 of the Bard’s plays published seven years after his death, has been discovered at a stately home on a remote Scottish island.   The goatskin-bound book which was published in 1623 was found at Mount Stuart House…

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Magical Realism

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Magical Realism

I came across this lovely and interesting post on ‘Magic Realism’ and thought of sharing. I love to read magic realism novels. UNSPEAKABLE THINGS by Kathleen Spivack Knopf, 304 pages   For many years, magical realism felt to me like literature’s answer to a prop comic. It was the cheapest screwdriver in the author’s toolbox, an indulgent and nigh unpardonable offense on the level of the dreaded Third Act Misunderstanding whereby a character’s real motivations are revealed in an aloof and…

Golden Oriole

Golden Oriole

A beautiful, coloured bird with striking yellow and jet black plumage and fully black wings was perched on the tree outside my window sill. It had camouflaged so effectively amongst the leaves that it is hard to spot. It has this song that alerts everyone around and can be heard over considerable distances.   The female of the species has dull-looking slightly greener colour. They have dark red eyes and a fairly thick, pink beak that is curved downwards at the end. It…

Power of NOW

Power of NOW

I recently came across this book, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle as I was going through my book collections. The book is enlightening. It is beautifully written. Eckhart Tolle introduces us with his story. A story of early depression and despair that resulted in a wonderful experience of awakening one night not long after his birthday. Here is what he states: I opened my eyes. The first light of dawn was filtering through the…
