The reasons to live are many and so are the reasons to love someone. What happens when somebody experiences the emptiness of time and discovers that the self within is not something monolithic or one dimensional? It results in a combination of different persona that coalesces into a big bubble. The burden of such myths of love and relationship takes us onto the journey of the unknown along the periphery of our hearts.
In the end, how much do we know ourselves?
Arunangshu Paul has been living, in
his own words, a mundane nine to seven existence for a major part of his life
as a small cog in the big wheel of financial markets. The creative side of his
persona is, at the same time, restorative and cathartic for him. Writing poetry
and stories has been his hobby since a very young age. He is an active
social-media commentator and blogger. This is his first attempt to bring forth
his feelings and emotions through a collection of poetry. The author believes
in the transient nature of life and this encourages him to explore the relations
that bind us with each other.
