Call from Home

Call from Home

“Fetch me a home.” He said.
“Home?” I chuckled.

“Yes, some place, where the walls offer solace and the rooftop soothes me,
when I lay beneath it” His eyes seemed lost.
“You already live there, darling.” I slipped my hand into his.

Bewildered he gazed at me.
So I continued,
“If home were some bricks stacked
upon each other and some concrete piled up,
I would forever be a vagrant.
But I reside, here under this skin.
My soul plays in the gaps of my veins.
My body is my home.

I’d decorate it with the fabric of love and
pierce my flesh with utter emotions.
Cleanse my blood for the dirt of the times long gone.
The phenomenon of home is restrained to an enclosed space
or a hundred paged book or some person or some memory you decide to live in.
Shed that cloak of pretense. Accept the home you were born in. For once.

The melanin in my skin shall be the glittered sky you wish to see from your window.
My dull hair shall be the rooftop encasing the miracles and the energies in it.
My skin shall contain my space.
Home is me, honey. It is me and it is you.
Wherever I reside, my home shall be.”

The Unique Blogger Award

unique-blogger-award

Another award, Yay!

First off, how have y’all been? Blogging daily has slipped out of my routine, apparently, so make up to it— I’ve decided to keep blogging for next 21 days in ANYWAY possible! Why 21 days? Because I believe doing something for 21 days is enough to develop that particular thing as a habit. Let’s see what happens next. sigh

Now, let’s start what you’re here for!

The Unique Blogger Award

unique-blogger-award

I’ve been nominated by the Aesthetic blogger- Riya Rajayyan from AestheticGraphy. I know I’ve said this before that her blog is aesthetic as her name, but lately, it’s improved to a whole new level! Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already. You won’t be disappointed. (Same goes for the unique bloggers that I’ve nominated below. Each of them are unique in their own way and it’s quite difficult to find similarities between the style of writing and blogging. Don’t miss any of them!)

THE RULES:
  • Share the link to the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 15 people and notify them.
  • Ask them three questions.

Since Riya is lazy, she’s asked me to answer the same questions that were asked to her.

1.What (or who) inspired you to get into blogging?

Ans: I’m tired from typing it so many times. Here’s the link to where I described why I started the blog.

The Honest Fabler started because my writings were homeless (Literally). This blog has given them a home, and to me, the recognition as a writer/poet and of course a learning Blogger!
It was short, right?

TheCramm & Blogger Recognition Award

2. Describe your ideal three-course meal? 

Ans: You really don’t want to know what I consume to create poop, do you? (Why doesn’t it sound gross when Liza Koshy says it?)

3. Would you consider naming any future children after fictional characters, if so which characters?

Ans: Never thought about that. But mostly, no, I’ll save them the embarrassment of being just another person with a famous name. And I’m pretty good at naming characters (Certified by me XD) So, yeah, I’ll name them something good.

THE QUESTIONS:
  1. Would you rather work on your dream job and never be appreciated OR take up an unwilling job and be appreciated by everyone you know?
  2. What would had been your first words as a kid, if you had the vocabulary that you have now.
  3. Do you believe in bashing what you hate or appreciating what you love?

My Nominees are

  1. The Girl on the Go
  2. Poetrylover
  3. Sanchali 
  4. Sanjita
  5. Victor
  6. Shreyas

Captioning Photographs

captioning photograph

Pre-Script:

If you’re a writer and you’ve got friends who do photography or, well, post any kinda posts you’ve heard this:
“Bhai is photo pe caption dede”
Translation: Bro, give me a caption for this photograph.

A few months ago, I did this:-

Jokes apart, the sole reason I do it is, I get a good subject to write upon. So, it’s kinda a thank you note to those photographers who have given me such great subjects to write upon. The amount of amazing shots that I’ve seen, inspired me to try photography myself. (Obviously on my phone, I’ll show it to you, soon.)
Here are two of the recent photos that I wrote a caption for and they’ve left me perplexed!
They’ve perfect lighting, The perfect feel and the perfect message.
Please make sure you see the amazing instagram feed of these photographers and I assure you, the job of blowing your mind will be done by their work.

Flowing Water — by Ameya Parab (@photo_scopic)

captioning photograph
Over the course of time, a strong rock may not be moved by the stream but it’s edges, for sure, would give way to the mighty droplets to flow ❤

A passionate photographer of the nature and potraits alike, Ameya, is an enthusiast who always carries his camera everywhere he goes. There’s rarely an occasion that I’ve seen him without his camera and he’s always behind the lens.

Camera Man — by Akash Nair(@akxshn)

captioning photographs
Walk barefooted on the dirt.
Capture strange things.
Talk to strange faces.
Hug the paved roads.
Kiss every rain’s droplet.
Burn in the nature’s oven.
That’s all he does & That’s all we should.

Isn’t this a masterpiece? A camera man resting on a pavement near the Gateway of India with his album open in front of him. The perfect timed shot is somehow very meaningful and so is the caption! I wonder how talented is the guy who wrote it. XD Just kidding! Check out Akash’s insta feed for more such masterpieces!

Original Idea for “Minimalism” — by Omkar Borade(@omkarborade)

Captured on a Camera Phone!

I can’t believe it, either! Omkar sure does prove that camera phones can do wonders if used right. Don’t forget to check out his gallery, he has tons of amazing CAMERA PHONE shots!
Warning: NOOB CONTENT AHEAD.

Take Flight

Take flight

This is for all the artists out there..the ones who had so many things in their head to recreate on a paper with something as simple as a pencil and colours of any kind..who were waiting to get better and better so that they could show the world exactly what they wanted. The waiting is over. Pick up that medium and just start creating without holding back. You were born to do this. The art is not just in your skills it’s in YOU. No one can compare to that. Let the lines be wobbly and let those colours out of those crooked borders. Just keep creating no matter what. No block or nothing can stop you. It’s you who’s waiting. Waiting to feel inspired and motivated enough. Waiting to feel confident. But that just begins in this exact moment when you decide it has started to flow through you. Let it go. For real. No force is big enough to come between you and your imagination. No force can take that away from you. You are enough. You are powerful enough to impact the world. Even after you are gone. I know. No one cares about your art now when you are alive. I know how it feels to see people praising dead artists and ignoring the live ones. That’s just cuz I’m one of you. But you know what? We matter. Our art matters. Without our art this place would stay bare and colourless and lifeless. We put the colours and life in this world. Keep doing it. Stop doubting yourself. Do it now. Go. 

P.s. The title is a song which was muse for me when I wrote this. This is how that music makes me feel.

What makes us human?

© Divya Gupta – A writer of deepest thoughts and widest vision. A person whose short write ups will indulge your heart in an emotional sea. I won’t ask you to follow her, her work will make you do it yourself.❤️


We were only a couple minutes old when we started to express.
It wasn’t something we learnt.

It was something we were created with finesse.

Expressions which should have been awakened and optimized,
Were only beaten away and criticized.

We grow up to learn that it’s critical to be logical,
And it’s only logical to be critical.

Expressions portray vulnerability.
While vulnerability depicts weakness.

We start to strive from what we learn.
We detach ourselves from one’s to be attached.
And attach to what we’re trying to get detached from.

We realise many things aren’t real,
And real things aren’t many.

We hold on to feelings and souls so close.

And just when we realise someone’s eyes are on us,
We leave them all hanging midair no matter the vows.

All because we feel “feeble”
Oh but feeble only rhymes with “evil”.

We fail to discern that,
That’s what makes us human.

“Knowing that love is seldom about first impressions and
Rain is not just about lighting and thunder
Giving away all
Our tears and smiles.
Even when there’s a lot to surrender
Imagining what we can create
And creating things we can’t even imagine”

But what we do is
Cry when we’re happy
Laugh through the pain and call it joy.

We hurt others when we’re hurt and
Seem to earn pride in calling it satisfaction.
Our mortal sins and fatal flaws.

Words that soothe us, hurt others like claws.

Our envy, hatred, greed and lust.
Our desire for attention and ignorant trust.

Broken promises, misunderstood silence
Lose our ways to find ourselves

Neglecting the difference between
Innocence and violence.

Instead of being the way we’re and having fun,
We change our paths and just say “I’m done”.

Building rules and wrecking it, too.
Sometimes being human is the most inhumane thing we do.

Looking for humanity

“So students, this lesson has
taught us that a falling apple
made man discover Gravity.”
The teacher concluded, closing the textbook.

A student stood up and asked, “If a falling fruit can
make us discover gravity then why can’t the falling bombs
make us discover humanity?”

Be kind, be brave.

“How was the city? Did you like it?” She enquired. “Well, it was helpless and romantic but mostly suffocating”, I replied. She sighed, apparently this wasn’t the answer she was expecting.

But I only spoke the truth. I could see people with hollow eyes and dry lips- so void of any feeling.
I could see people getting into those showrooms buying a piece of cloth that costs far more than the actual worth, while children begged outside these very showrooms.
I could see how everyone was in search for some place to escape, for something to disappear in.
And since they were unable to find it, they pretended to be in love or having fun. Pretension was their escape. I could see how history no longer mattered to them, how scared they were of the future.
And somewhere in between these two they were living the present.
And at that moment the world seemed so bitter and unkind as if it’s put there to watch you drown or build a wall to trap you with your sadness.

That was the moment when I knew, that this beautiful world could be brutal but that is the exactitude of time when you need to stay strong, when you need to preserve your kindness and love this world back.
Funnily enough, this vast universe seems to need us as much as we need it!

I let them die.

I am bitter.

I mourn for the people I couldn’t become and I blame the world for it.

They killed the poet

They killed the writer

They killed the playwright

and everything they could’ve written.

They killed the actor

They killed the model

They killed the muse
and everything they could’ve become.

They killed the firefighter

They killed the doctor

They killed the soldier
and everyone they could’ve saved.

They killed the child

They killed the romantic

They killed the dreamer
and everything they could’ve accomplished.

They killed everything I could’ve become and I’m bitter.

Because in the end, I let them die.
