“My deepest impulses are optimistic; an attitude that seems to me as spiritually necessary and proper as it is intellectually suspect”


“What is not started today is never finished tomorrow.”

As there is a saying, when one door closes another one opens. Yes, that’s how life is and this book of mine is just like that as I make progress on its release.

Me and my friend we are working very hard to put together this book of mine.
It’s like a baby who is growing each day and making progress towards that day when the baby will walk…yes that’s how I feel about this book of mine.

“My deepest impulses are optimistic; an attitude that seems to me as spiritually necessary and proper as it is intellectually suspect” ~ Ellen Willis

This is the cover page of my book and I want to see what do my friends see when they see the cover of this book :). This could be one of your eye test ;) …lol!

Well the title of this book is ‘Khawabon Ki Zamiin’ meaning ‘Land of dreams’; as I feel this is the land where we dream and we also make our dreams come true.

This book consists of all my poetries belonging to my childhood, my teenage mind and heart and the youth where I feel others pain and injustice and wants to voice that to all…!

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” ~ Lyman Frank Baum

As I said this is my first effort and with my friends encouragement I could give this baby a birth :).

I do want to mention about the cover page painting yes, its one of my dear relative and friend who is witty and yet naughty but then his imagination on the canvas made me to choose this painting of his ;) and his name is Jagadish Bhaskar Pakravoor.

“Dreams are like the paints of a great artist. Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas. Believing, is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality.”

I thank all my friends for their blessings and prayers and also to my friends who are helping me in releasing this book :).

“One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.” ~Malayan Proverb

The draft of my book is almost done and is in the preparation of releasing it.
The due date is yet to come ….wait for it ;)

The painting looks like a keyhole with a person inside opening onto the world. I think that is a perfect image for a book of poetry. Good luck!

hi dawn... all the best for ur book! I think the cover depicts a keyhole and thus its an insight into a woman's mind.. as there's a woman painted in orange.

Hope I've given good feedback! :)
sreedevi said…

Hope to pick up some fragments of your dreams emerging from the all giving soil one day SEHER, it could be in the form of grain or an apple. i know the fruits of your imagination and efforts would be the sweetest.
i bow to mother earth, and all mothers in the world.
Mother earth forgives her children who inflict injuries on her and heals herself.
My next post is on the dreams of a farmer. A bit harsh i am afraid.
My best wishes for the coming book.

नमस्ते फिज़ा, कैसी हो? पुस्तक हिन्दी मे है तो मेरी टिप्पणी भी हिन्दी मे ही! पुस्तक का शीर्षक पसंद आया..साहस का आभास देता है..आप आसमा पर रहने वाले ख्वाबों को जमी पर ले आईं.:)..कवर पेज पर धरती का हरा और आसमान का नीला रंग भी साथ साथ मे अच्छा है!..अँधेरे मे रोशनी खोजने के लिये औजार (हँसिया और चाभी!) भी हैं! हिम्मत वाले केशरी रंग के साथ्!

बहुत सारी शुभकामनाओं के साथ-
रचना.
