Hello friends!! Thank you for dropping by. I’m glad you’re here.
Wondering what this ‘magnanimous’ word is all about? Well, the name of my blog ‘Magnanimous Word’ just came by, like some revelation. Probably because words have always fascinated me.
Word is divine – most religions say that.
Word is a bond – giving a word implies commitment and people die for their word.
Words have great power to hurt or heal. They can break it or make it. In the form of compliments and praise, words can build someone up. By way of insults and humiliation, words can tear someone down, sometimes for the full life.
Words can inspire and motivate. Our actions, that cause revolution and change the world have their seeds in our thoughts, ideas and words.
If words have so much power to change the world, then writers should make sure it is a positive change. Let’s keep our words generous and abundant in giving, forgiving, inspiring and sharing, while we entertain others and keep them engaged.
And that’s what I try to do through my blog – by using words that convey truth, humour, sadness, romance, inspiration and much more. A huge variety of themes, social messages, feelings and emotions can be seen in my writings – poems, stories, musings, articles. I’m equally comfortable in all genres.
Most of the posts are my creation – my own words and pictures. Very occasionally I bring in other people’s stories and thoughts to inspire you. In this case, I fully cite and acknowledge the author, poet or creator. Otherwise assume the work is mine, of course with full copyright.
I write about whatever I observe in life, from my experiences and sometimes that of others.
Like a proverbial cat with nine lives, have lived many lives in one single life, at least in my variety of career experiences as well as moving from one city to another, or one suburb to another which meant friends too kept on changing while extended families were left behind.
All in all, a wider exposure to life often comes with wonderful gains along with losses and resultant instabilities and insecurities. I’ll share some of them with my readers so that it can inspire or guide someone in some way .
Quite often my work is sheer imagination with no relation whatsoever to my life, or to any known person or character. So there you go 🙂
Please stay a while. Check out all the stories and ideas, and feel free to give me your suggestions to improve the blog.
