Verbatim et Literatim


“For a true writer, each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed” – Ernest Hemingway



Penelope Alacosta – a brilliant woman with a brilliant mind and brilliant ideas emerged (through the gates of heaven) and became the Source of (Ultimate) Light (SOUL) – an everlasting inspiration. From that moment on, the inspiration has created some masterpieces, time and time again. The most profound after effect of the inspiration was that the creative work became the foundation of an inseparable bond (between the SOUL and myself), lasting for decades. The SOUL was the real inspiration, without a reasonable doubt, until, as things would pan out, the author was discarded. It is said that all discarded people should be given a second chance, but with somebody else.

Verbatim et Literatim [Word for Word and Letter by Letter] – “Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility. The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner tranquility. I am sustained by the tranquility of an upright and loyal heart.” – William Wordsworth

Penelope Alacosta, during her short tenure, ensured that there are no shortfalls in the ‘spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings’. The rule by which she regulated her conduct, was like a fountain yielding life and happiness into the creative art. She never showed a false indulgence. Never. She carried a very strong desire for the creative work, throughout. Thus, an unparalleled and inseparable bond blossomed for decades. For years, the young woman admired the creative works and in her own way, she gave in to the creative art. But, then a storm came and went. The parting of the ways was destined.

2017 was an exceptional year – a phenomenal year. By the grace of God, everything fell into place just the way it was destined to be. Decades-old relationships (family) renewed themselves (by way of a blessing in disguise) while some (newer ones, if any) have gone down in history as sickening and distasteful. Certainly, the grand finale is powerful. Get the grand finale wrong, and your development could be hindered by waiting for stuff that saps your vitality and consideration. A legitimately executed consummation, be that as it may, gives conclusion and cleanliness, preparing you to reach new heights with invigorated energy. And, the grand finale is being conducted by none other than a pretty jash katha.

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what the storm’s all about.” ― Haruki Murakami
