Writing 101, Day-8
Assignment: Expand a comment.
Thank you Robert. When I read the book for the first time, I had an unbelievable reaction. I loved the book immensely.
I discussed it with Shafique and wondered what kind of a person would the author,think I am if he was alive according to what he wrote about people. I felt I did not quite absorb everything he wrote, my mind was not one hundred percent there. To bring myself in the zone, I decided to do a second reading, this time chapter by chapter. I thought it would help if I shared this with my friends in the form of a post, I might succeed in understanding myself and the author. Was I able to, I’d say partly, I’ll have to go through a third reading, this time only for myself, and on occasions discuss with Shafique, he has always been a very good friend. I feel he is my brother, whom I lost years ago. (my comment to Robert).
Kahlil Gibran’s book, “The Prophet,” is an amazing book. I read it twice, once to find out what it is about. I felt this is one of those books that leaves you with the thought, “I wonder what would the writer think about me as a person, if he were alive?”
I’m still trying to find out, I didn’t get an answer from my inner self. I think I have to read it more than twice. may be if by reading for the umpteenth time, I might get an answer. Right now it’s up in the air.
Friends please leave your comment, harsh or nice, it’s all good. Thanks for taking the trouble!
