The Quote Challenge #1

I have been tagged by a blogger friend, Vinay Leo R. from I Rhyme Without Reason for ''The Quote Challenge''. I will share a quote from my favorite book or a quote from my favorite author for three days consecutively in a blog post and tag my friends to be part of this challenge. I would like to tag Maniparna of Scattered Thoughts, Purba of Laugh, laugh and reflect and Tennyson Thomas from The Tea Celebration(s)

''Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.'' - Rumi 

I greatly follow Rumi's sayings and one of them is, the one I have shared above. His thoughts come from deep roots of various emotions- Hope, happiness, sorrow, helplessness and admiration. Dad and I often debate on doing things based on 'what I love' and 'what I don't love but do it anyway'. I always take my heart's call for things I really like and I rebel. My parents were worried because of my interest in literature over Science and they were against to let me opt it for my higher studies. I had a tough time convincing my parents 'but the strange pull of what I really love' didn't let me lose heart and hope. I am happy that I am actually implementing over it. And I am sure, it will never lead me astray.

  2. That's actually true. I'm very glad that you are able to convince your parents. For me, it was very tough, so I chose the other way. To follow my heart, and to make my parents happy!

    I recently read a book by Elif Shafak "Forty Rules of Love" it was through this book that I learnt much about Rumi and Shams of Tabrez.

Book Review: The Camphor of Night by Samir Satam

This  book  is like a warm coffee that soothes and rejuvenates you from inside out.     Kindle  |  Paperback   The Blurb: This day, Today, when looked at from the window of Future; Wouldn't it seem golden? But today it feels like just another day. Why does all this preciousness have to pass to be seen? Why can't it get its due while it lives? Unfortunately, that's the way it has always been. The Future seems to hold a certain value for The Past. But the present seems to be like an unfinished coin. It's still incomplete to derive any worth. The poems in this collection 'The Camphor Of Night' are little things stolen from life which found their way to a treasury box in which they lay locked for years until these little things developed a life of their own and hence they need to be set free, because now is their time to breathe. Excerpt: Titled: Shivers In those moments, When I think, Of his lips on yours... His skin against
