to write or not to write?

To write is the biggest task -
Difficulties unfold in a jiffy,
Mind is cornered with a thought,
Yet ill-equipped with right words.

The mind wants to share it all -
But the heart is too weak for this,
The nexus is a complex one, for,
What's in the heart comes out in words.

The question remains unanswered -
While the eyes take a journey around,
The feet stuck to the ground, and,
The bone house remains motionless.

To write or not to write?
To think or not to think?
Is that a question?
Can it be answered?

A good question to pose. At times due to various reasons the words won't take their shape on paper despite coordination, to me this particularly things are not in good order. At times when we are happy words flow without our knowledge.

And at times we won't get those expected results despite the fact the amount of labour we pool in!

All the magic remains in "expecting", this makes the whole lot of difference. For the one who is well versed with "Gita" you know what it says.

Miracles happen not because they are destined to happen, but because you choose to believe that they happen!

The Forest of EnchantmentsThe Forest of Enchantments by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"The Forest of Enchantments" is a beautiful attempt at narrating the 'Sitayan'. Divakaruni has a way to keep her readers engaged through the text effortlessly. This story provides a soothing insight into what Sita went through as a woman, as a possible daughter of a rakshasa, as a royal wife, and as a loyal wife! The story appears well-researched, and there is a beautiful blend of imagination, and creative and fluid writing. However, it didn't match up majestically to Divakaruni's "The Palace of Illusions"; the present story expressed a kind of hurried-ness, some chapters, or some incidents could have been more engaging if elaborated, but there was some kind of a rush to finish writing the story, and it was evident.
