you, too, think he was a coward, no? “what a pussy!” “he quit too soon, what a shame!” “never thought he was the suicide sort!” you have conveniently forgotten that you too had tried to end your life a zillion times but stopped – not because you mustered the zeal to stay alive but because […]
“Air pollution isn’t new to us but does it happen indoors too. Didn’t know!”
Is it possible that your home is so polluted that you feel suffocating and no activity is possible inside? Then it feels better outside to breathe in fresh air. A matter of a serious concern. Thanks doc2poet for this lovely article and bringing this issue to our awareness.
Air pollution; As I recall we learn about it as part of our primary education. If you
remember those water cycle, solar system and types of pollution days. Air pollution isn’t new to us but does it happen indoors too. Didn’t know!
Pollution has been a hot topic over the news lately with a number of Indian cities making it to the WHO list of most polluted cities of the world. Surprisingly, Delhi isn’t the most polluted any more, according to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) urban air quality database released in 2016.

If you are already feeling lucky that your city is not on the list or because you mostly stay indoors in your home or office, you need to align some facts here. The…

It’s too powerful! I loved this dashing unflinching articulation. Thanks Chey for writing such a wonderful piece! 🙂
I m sorry
I am sorry that I never lived up to your expectation.
And I am sorry for every time I questioned your rules and regulations.
I am sorry for every NO when I should’ve said Yes.
And I am sorry for not being a damsel in distress.
I am sorry for liking Tinkerbelle instead of Cinderella.
And sorry for not liking that pink coloured umbrella.
I am sorry that I punched that guy when he did wrong to my best friend.
And I am sorry for wearing clothes that weren’t even of the trend.
More than that I am sorry for not being the ideal girl type.
Because good girls don’t rebel and never do they create any hype.
I know that I should be a good girl and aspire to be a princess.
Because ‘to look good’ is my only power and sole purpose is…

In one of the rare interviews he did, the fiction writer and poet Denis Johnson — who died on Wednesday at 67 — was asked about his craft, and he quoted these lines from Joseph Conrad: “My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word to make you hear, to make you feel — it is, before all, to make you see. That — and no more, and it is everything.”
In his own novels and poems, Mr. Johnson fulfilled that task with extraordinary savagery and precision. He used his startling gift for language to create word pictures as detailed and visionary, and as varied, as paintings by Edward Hopper and Hieronymus Bosch, capturing the lives of outsiders — the lost, the dispossessed, the damned — with empathy and unsparing candor. Whether set in the bars and motels of small-town America, or…
