A million thoughts collide
possibilities, impressions, questions, time
I dive into each, rippling through layers
just to know few bends
perspectives of the mind.
As the smog lifts
and the clouds pour
the clearest view lies
at the stretch of sight.
My eyes draw out
what the mind gives form
I attempt to shake
notions held tight.
a walk through time
prejudices, talent, strength outlined.
no matter how tight the bind
no matter how deep the divide
extraordinary in every ordinary soul, defined.
Magnum Opus is designed to be a collection of my perspectives and women stories.
What I trust, believe is what I script. Poetry, Quotes and much more.
World of Women (WOW) – The WOW sections will talk of seemingly ordinary women that have some extraordinary stories. Some might have been lost in pages of history and then some who live courages lives. All show us how similar we are.
Many a times we feel that the west is a certain way; East lives by a different set of values. We might not even need to go that far. Sometimes our focus, comparisons and prejudices just splinter through the neighborhood. From our vantage point; we instantly make opinions based on the other’s race, community, country, social status, religion, a news article, a book or movie we once saw or simply color of their skin. The day we have our first conversation or pack our bags, board a flight and head in different directions outside our cultural borders is the day our true education begins. The world turns smaller and more familiar as we collect our airline miles and the one thing we learn is our perceptions of the other, sometimes teachings passed on were but a mirage. Sitting within our borders, we seem to form opinions without actually experiencing, judgements without even having shared a dialogue and defend rules of our society or home to many a times simply justify the paths we take in life.
Through the amazing World of Women (WOW), Magnum Opus will be a journey to break exactly such prejudices. An attempt to travel the world not through our opinions but with real women from different parts of the world, our shared stories, expressed dreams, our motivations even preconceptions we carry. This will be a platform for the extraordinary stories of ordinary women.
Understand and embrace who we truly are.
See beyond the differences and recognize the similarities.
Magnum Opus – Let’s celebrate life extraordinaire!
