book i loved the wisdom of Rilke

my first introduction with Rilke was through the bookt letters to a young poet his book taught me a lot about poets life and philosophy for now its the wisdom of rilke which is on my bedside table some of few topics which i loved in this book is his insight on art language nd love.
some of the favourite quotes from this book.


in what soil of misery we poet moles are digging around, never sure where we will push up and who might devour us at that very spot where we stick our dusty nose out of the soil.


art presents itself asa way of life, not unlike religion, science and socialism. it differs from these other modes of understanding only in that it is not a product of its time and appears, as it were, as the worldview of the ultimate goal.


there is no force in the world but love, and when you carry it within you, if you simply have it, even if you remain baffled as to how to use it, it will work its radiant effect and help you out of and beyond yourself one must never lose this belief , one must simply (and if it were nothing else}endure in it.

book review - my friend my enemy - Ismat Chughtai

This book on non fiction by Ismat Chughtai has many windows about the life which I have not seen. I specially loved the essay on Manto by her in which she painted about his life in a tragic way.
the essay my friend my enemy show two sides of her life while one part talk about her good heart the other part talks what she couldn't understand in manto

some of my favourite quotes.

"will god break this brass shell one day and come out."

"now it doesn't matter if the world refers to the heroine of contemporary literature as immodest or repugnant because our times have allocated the status of a heroine to her.She is the brick formed as a result of history's upheavals, a brick that has found its place in the construction design."

"literature and life, literature and society, and literature and history go hand in hand. If any of these is separated from the other it will be destroyed altogether. In other words, a vacuum will be created is literature is cut off from life and the hero is separated from the heroine.

the balcony

Most of the time I pick books which tell me more about the icy where I was once most of the time its those places which call me back to visit through words again and again
Balcony is one such books the stories are not pleasant ones the characters have too many layers wih each story you come to know more about the character reading this book is like peeling raw onion
Loved it \.

solitude - micropoetry

Solitude doesn't mean
Being alone and lost
Solitude means
Opening the door
Of your mind.

- while saying merci R is supposed to be muted
