Silence and your inner voice

When there are no words left to express what you want to say, when there is so much emotion that voice does not suffice, when there is so much love that it crosses all known means of communication, then there is silence.

Silence does not mean that there is nothing to say.. It might mean that there is so much.

Silence is essential because only when there is silence do you listen to your inner voice.. That little voice which gets completely drowned in the daily noises of life.. Music from the i-pod, more music on the CD, Music on the radio, mobiles ringing, friends dropping by , kids fighting, playing, spouses interrupting.. traffic noise, city noises-airplanes, cars and everything else that attempts to make you go faster to wherever you want to reach.. All of this kills the inner voice.. We constantly seek these noises of life, because listening to that inner voice is something that most of us do not want to face. It compels us to act and shakes us out of our comfort zone.. It makes us want to do things that we have never done before.. It also makes us accountable for our actions. .and that is something truly scary.
It is the easiest thing to hide.. We seek refuge behind set patterns, behind societal norms, behind traditions. We run constantly because if we pause we do not know where we are going.

Take a moment to think about what you really want.. In silence. Reflect on it and see what steps you can take to reach there.. It may be a small step, but if it is taken then the amount of satisfaction felt is tremendous.. It may be the answer to our quest for eternal happiness and bliss.

  1. the piece on silence...is very good ...as its a must for every individual to take stock of how he or she is living life. Is there meaningful contribution & return by & for self? And the inner voice geting lost in the day to day existence is so common that a quiet self appraisal or self questioning as\suggested would go a long way to tackle life & its challenges.

  3. This post really strikes a chord with me! Currently, I'm in a position where everyone is going one way and I'm stopping myself from following this set pattern that you spoke about. Following your dreams is hard but whats even harder is finding one!!

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017
