Poem: Loving a sailor

Away from the sea A sailor feels good as dead So is true for his lover Whom fate often parts  The sailor longs for the wind in his face His lover waits for the warmth in his arms One sunset the ship must forever rest His lover eyes are on the next sunrise - हेरंब Author of The Last Nomad ISupportNAAM

The Edmund Wilson experiment

The American writer and critic Edmund Wilson said, "No two persons ever read the same book." So true, Mr. Wilson! Readers find their own special story in each and every page they read. Won't it be awesome to hear a passage from The Last Nomad in your voice? Let's prove Mr. Wilson right. Start here. Select a passage you would like to read (from the nine given below) Record it in your clear voice (a voice recording on any mobile/pc/tablet/voice recorder would do. A video recorded at a beach/park/cafe would be simply amazing.) Quickly send it across (maybe along with a nice selfie :-)) using: Message on Facebook:  @thelastnomadindia Email it on  connectinsight@gmail.com  with the subject line 'The Edmund Wilson experiment | My story in your voice'. Tweet to @insightstories  with the hash tag #MyStoryInYourVoice You can also share it using  Dropbox / WeTransfer / Google Drive  to connectinsight@gmail.com. Your stories will be publ

I experienced KAUL - A Calling. Did you?

Understanding any movie will seem to be the easiest thing... only until you watch Kaul - A Calling. Maybe you'll feel like quitting it halfway, but hang on till the end to have the complete experience. This is neither a praise post neither a review; I can't rate this experience.  Maybe I can go on talking about unconventional cinematography, sound design and so on. But it won't do you any good.  Kudos to team Kaul, especially writer and director, Aadish Keluskar, for attempting such a film. Watch it, at least once, but only if you can dare to be left hollow in the end. The movie opens with Friedrich Nietzsche's quote, “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” Not all things experienced can be understood, not all things understood can be expressed. We danced. Welcome to KAUL - A Calling ! - हेरंब Author of The Last Nomad ISupportNAAM
