About

My name is Prabhat. I am from India(though I prefer calling myself ‘a Citizen of the World’) Actually, since I read so much of novels, and stories from around the world, I feel connectedness with every culture in some way.

Reading and imagining and thinking and writing are my biggest passions.(Perfect traits which make me quite a useless person when it comes to handling practical tasks of life.) I am deeply fond of books and libraries.I  read a lot of fictions,mainly the ones considered ‘classics’, because I love the old school language- classy, gentelmanly and exquisite,which has a fine-smooth flavour, just like red wine! And I like red wine so much! You will find me reading most of the times. I am always in a different world based on the book I am reading. I sometimes get crush on a female protagonist and think how will she look if she were real and sometimes I get worried about the  lead actor so much that you can see it bringing lines on my forehead!

I am an avid reader of poetry too,my favourites being RL Stevenson,William Wordsworth and Alfred Lord Tennyson.

When not reading or writing I like to watch documentaries,or explore book shops in my area or hang out with my cool friends or go on a long walk. I like to go on long walks quite a lot, it helps me ponder upon many useless things which I somehow find quite entertaining.

I am a keen admirer of art.Well I dont understand art to appreciate them like a pro, but I get drawn towards some paintings for unknown reason. I think it affects at subconscious level as one of my artist friends had once  explained me. So I like watching artworks and also try to make some naive drawings myself sometimes.

I am currently working with the marketing deptt of a company.  I work in the digital marketing domain, which I like and, I have got some really cool people at my office! I also handle content writing and it often helps me pass a lot of time at work! Don’t misunderstand me, but I do like working on tasks that help me pass time at office!

So in short I m 26, living a normal life with a mind immersed in a different world of books and fictions, and so I am a man of more ‘written’ words than ‘spoken’. My friends find me too mysterious, and haunt me that when I get married, my wife will hit me on the head with a saucepan if I answer to her in monosyllables like I answer to them sometimes.

In my blog I write about books and poetry that I read and some random thoughts that I just feel like sharing to express myself, thoughts which best gets expressed by writing!

  1. Hello, Prabhat..
    Thank you for following lifehelps.wordpress.com; for liking and commenting on “heralds of Spring”. For one thing, your visit to me prompted my discovery of your blog: How delightful!
    so, how did you come up with the title Dancing with MOSQUITOS”? Most of us don’t think of them in a positive light.
    Also, I have a counter for one of the quotes from the book on Murfy’s Law for you:
    “Don’t argue with an idiot: He’ll bring you down to his level; then beat you with experience.”

    Have a wonderful day.

    • Hi Hannah! Yeah,it’s a delight to get connected.You write nice poems and I wanted to explore your style. 🙂 Thanks for the follow.
      Well you know, even I don’t think of them in a positive light.I think mosquitoes are the worst creatures that have been harrowing every other living being of the order higher than them, since time immemorial. But there is a poetess friend of mine who once spoke this line and it kind of blew my mind! For the first time I had heard positive about them, and I wanted to commemorate it.As my blog has the subtitle of ‘Rendezvous with the beauty of life’ I decided to use her words to make the title! 😉

  3. Thanks for the follow and reading some of my posts. I do have two blogs….
    I see we have a few things in common, I call it wanderlust and my home is where ever I am sleeping that night (or where my motor home is parked). And I hate mosquitos but they make me dance as I try to swat them away! They love me….LOL

    • Oh thanks a lot Debbie for paying a visit! I got pretty engaged as I found your blog, probably because of the same reason of finding certain things akin, like wanderlust (thanks for the term!) and also because of your passion towards living a more fulfilling life! One after the other , the headings kept attracting me. The idea of a “Gratitude Journal” is what made me start pondering , lastly. That is the one thing I am still thinking about. “I should also start maintaining one”, that is what I am saying to myself!

  4. Hello again, Prabhat. I’m a little later getting around to your blog than I had hoped today, but at least I’ve managed it before midnight. I’m glad to say that reading, writing, travelling and exploring are four of my greatest passions, too. We tend to do a lot of travelling – and exploring – nowadays, and I love to post about places we’ve visited on my blog. You have a great choice in literature – you can’t go far wrong with the classics. As for Wordsworth, I studied his poetry many years ago for my A Level English And have loved his work ever since. I look forward to reading more your posts, Prabhat, and I’m very happy to follow you.

  9. I am very pleased to meet you.

    I love books and libraries too, I am like a kid in a candy store when I enter into a book store. Books are wonderful and writing is a great creative outlet. 🙂

  10. I’m happy to have come across your blog and love the paintings and poems. What an interesting title to your blog? Mosquitoes are something I usually swat or scream at! Although it might look like dancing when I’m trying to get away from them! How did come upon this title? But the way I like your statement of being a citizen of the world. Aren’t we all? It is really that simple. Warmest wishes to you.

    • Oh thank you so much Annika for paying a visit! I am so pleased to hear you appreciate my artworks and poetry! 🙂 Haha, regarding the title, I will tell you… I had this friend of mine and she was such deeply poetic.. and once I asked her if she was back from college.. and she said..’ I am still out and dancing with mosquitoes’ .. that line of her amused me so much it stayed in my mind always..and when I was going to make my new blog and was thinking for the title..bingo! That phrase came back- it was so funny and optimistic! I wanted my blog to be about happy things.. 😀 Haha.. that’s the story.. yeah even I despise mosquitoes, and this is the only phrase I ever heard that gives a funny side to the troubles they give us..So I kept it! 🙂 Thank you again..I am really happy to meet you! 🙂

    • Yeah 🙂 It has been quite interesting so far. Got some challenging projects at work but I m glad it is helping me learn formal writing styles. Because of so much work, I am back to the only-reading-mode, will try to get back to writing soon. 🙂 Thank-you Millie for the visit! 🙂 I also need to discover about your newest explorations. I too can’t miss to be up to date 🙂
