I’ve seen you in my dreams
Sometimes crying, sometimes smiling
I’ve felt I’ve known you all along
In your love I felt like flying
You gave me joy that knew no bounds,
Felt happiness worth a million pounds.
I know it will be difficult to live without you,
In my heart, I’ll always think about you.
I’ll always remember you name,
As they say, ‘child of the windd’
In my life, like a breeze you came,
Touched my soul, deep within.
No matter what happens tonight,
With destiny, I can’t fight.
As always, will take what comes my way,
Thanks for giving me strength,
For making all the pain go away.
Inspired by this poem, the book talks about a journey. A journey that an author takes to share someone’s love, trials and tribulations and how hope wants to surmount against all odds. How the protagonist, Samir, who is in love with Naina… yet doesn’t know if he will be able to survive the odds. This book is about the story of Samir’s life told to the author by Naina the girl who is in love with Samir and willing to do anything for him before the final chapter unfolds…
Child of the Windd is a journey ‘5’ years in the making. A journey that I hope to take along with all of you. What you are about to read is a concept called ‘Blook.’ (Blog + Book)
Essentially, blogposts / blogs that are generated to transform into book.
The work is originally based on certain blog posts that I started writing in 2005 registered on
Started writing this blook so to speak, in 2005, with a lot of changes and a lot of learning from many a publishers, friends, family and reviewers and of course a lot of rejections from the likes of Penguin, Rupa and Co. etc… Decided to take on this concept. Original draft written to be published by AGM Books by Parvez Abeideen, the project needed a lot of modification after which, I never approached the same publisher.
There are many reasons why it has not been published up until now. One of them being, that technically and from the tightening perspective, it needs to be redrafted with fine editing process. This I realized when I attended a creative writing course at Xavier’s Institute of Communication. Now that I have a bit of time and learning from that course at XIC. I plan to keep on constantly editing this Blook and of course that with all your help.
Now I approach all of you, my readers / my friends to participate in this experiment I’d like to conduct. A social means to understand the reader, my audience and take feedback from you and hope that this ‘blook’ becomes a real time ‘Book.’
Hope you all enjoy reading this book, hope you respond to comments either through direct comments or email whichever suits you. It’s not necessary that you give opinion / feedback after reading the entire blook. You can give your comments randomly on any posts.
I’d certainly be editing the same as part of ‘Trance Writing’ concept and this blook will be constantly under review, till it reaches certain sets of expectations.
