Rattled Cage

Dreams and freedom are the same.
In order for them to be,
they come with a price.
– Criss Jami

A bird flying in the sky, fluttering through the wind, was living her life freely in the world. Her eyes getting a beautiful view warming her heart to the core. The feeling of opening her wings and diving in the air was magnificent. She sat on the highest branch of a tree for some time. She was enjoying the view from up there. Something caught her attention, as she squinted her eyes more, in a very long distance a beautiful castle came into view.

A castle so beautiful and shiny, it took her breath away. She wanted to see it from a closer distance but it was too far away. Deeper into the forest it was going to take a very long time for her to cover the distance and that’s when a dream took its birth. A dream that needed endurance, pain and patience to come true. It was time to cross many obstacles and bring the love to nurture the dream to grow. Her belief got stronger and she was ready to withstand any storm. Believing in her wings, she kept flying through the strong wind and kept going in the direction of the castle.

It took her months of hard work and struggle to reach the beautiful place. She was now looking at the castle from outside and was mesmerized by it’ beauty. She took a deep breath and slowly started flying into the castle.

The moment she entered the boundaries a new plant started growing around the castle climbing the walls and creating a dome-like structure all over the place. It appeared as if someone has decorated the whole castle with beautiful golden flowers and silver thrones.

The bird was enchanted with the beauty and luxury that was present within the whole place. Suddenly many more birds came from inside and started playing and feeding on all the different kinds of food and she joined them and played with them for a very long time. When the sun started setting down she gazed outside and took a deep breath. She was relaxed, happy and very satisfied by thinking where she was.

Few days went by and the bird was happily enjoying her days of living in the castle. One fine morning she thought of going for a fly around the place and stretch her wings. And that’s when the bird finally noticed the decoration over the place. It was beautiful but impossible to cross. Realization dawned within her, that she was actually trapped in the castle and it was actually a golden cage.

Fluttering her wings, she tried flying up and crossing the barriers and ended up damaging her wings by the silver thrones. She was deeply wounded. She looked up at the sky through tears and wondered how her pained efforts resulted in gaining more pain.

The castle was filled with everything to survive other than her freedom. The bird started scratching on the main wall of the castle using her beak and wrote, “All dreams and wishes come true, but with a paid price.”

Book Review: Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

Click on the above link to buy.

Hello Everyone!

So I read this book recently “Midnight Sun” by Stephenie Meyer. It is a companion novel to the book “Twilight”. The Twilight book came in 2005, in which the whole story was narrated by the female protagonist Bella. It was Bella’s side of the story with her perspective about her love story showing her compassion for Edward even though he is a vampire. But in the entire series, we never got to know Edwards thought or his feelings about being in love with a human.

Well people who loved the Twilight series, for them this book is a treat to sink their teeth into. You are going to know Edward’s struggle about his feelings for Bella while his thirst is overpowering his senses. How he falls in love with a human being when all his senses are pushing him to just quench his thirst for blood? Well, this book is going to tell you all about it. Being a vampire, Edward is also gifted with the power of reading people’s mind and hearing everything that is going on in their head. And also he is much faster than other vampires. Well, the twist is he can’t read only one particular human’s mind and obviously it’s Bella. These things are already told in the book Twilight. But in Midnight Sun you will get to know how this particular twist makes Edward curious about the girl he wants to kill the most in the entire world. How his curiosity overpowers his normal senses and reflexes and while he tries to figure this girl out he falls in love with her.

It’s quite funny and romantic, the way Edward tries to figure out Bella by just talking to her and asking her about her favorite books, movies, food, color etc. Well, normal human beings get to know each other the same way, while they make guess and make mental judgements. But being a vampire with the ability to read minds, trying to figure out a human without this ability is very irritating for him.

In this book, you will also get to know more about Edward’s family. You will get to know in detail about Edward’s foster parents and foster brother and sister. And how they react to the addition of Bella into their life.

People who haven’t read the Twilight series yet, even they can also start with this book and if you like the story then you are definitely going to read the Twilight series as well.

Though this book is all about a simple love story but is really full of compassion, romance, fun and tragedy.

Well this is quite a long book series consisting of sixteen parts but people who like reading thriller and murder mystery, for them it is definitely a treat. It is about five girls who are in high school and become victim of life threatening murder plan.

The Girl in Room 105 By Chetan Bhagat
I read this book recently and absolutely loved it. It is an un-love story about a guy who tutors in a coaching center and is trying to find a job. And one day when he goes to wish his ex-girlfriend on her birthday, he finds her murdered. It’s a must read.
