The Brightest Dark Room




So, what is your relationship with your birth place? Do you still live at the same place? Is it special? Does it mean something special for you? Do you still visit the place some times? Do you feel anything different?

P.S – I don’t know what the point in writing this post was. May be, I just wanted give my present a perspective. Or, may be, I just wanted you to introduce to a very personal thing. My handwriting. I hope, you can read it all right. It used to be much better.

  2. first of all You got beautiful Handwriting :)

    I moved out of my house when i was in 4th class went to hostel , then college .. and then came to uk..
    but my room in my house was always THE RETREAT .. where all my dreams were made ..

    and Yes the room is still there , though with the wear and tear of the house we are planning to rebuild it all over again ...

    I am very attached ot my room DID so much in there and it had a big sign do not enter .. and only my dad would come in..

  3. i don't remember the room/place i was born in coz we moved out shortly afterwards.
    though i know that childhood memories are refreshing and inviting, you cannot visit that time again , thats a different thing.
    nice post! :)

  6. :) I was pleasantly surprised to see a post- handwritten! I love how you used a yellow tinted paper to give that an effect of a special writing. And the paper the handwriting the pressure on the words the little strikes.. Ah! They add a new dimension to the post.

    Whatever was that graphology I had read.. handwriting does give away some traits.

    Here is a short fiction about the connection to a house: http://life-in-a-jiffy.blogspot.com/2011/08/dilapidated-short-fiction.html

  7. Your hand writing is cute:) I have affection with the room where I was born, my cousin recently posted the picture of that house and I started missing it. This post is so warming and I guess for 2 reasons, The subject and your hand writing:)

  8. I think you hand writing is great! I could easily read it all...and the post is very well written!

    I never visited my birthplace after we moved away from there and I have zero recollection. All I know is where it exists on the map...

  11. things change...we move on...but still there's strong bond with our roots...that's being human...if we cannot be proud of our roots, we cannot be proud of ourselves....probably it's that ego that will always bind us to the place where we were born...

    lovely post...and great handwriting :)

    Cheers!

    Everyone does. The more we grow...the more we miss being children. Sweet and Innocent.

    Thank You

    Sameera:

    Actually..it was a white paper and I edited it to make it look like a yellow tinted paper. :)

    But, I am glad you could see sense and logic behind that. Thank you.

    I have not visited your place yet. I will for sure. :)

  15. Saru:

    Thank you for very much. I am happy that this reminded you of your own birth place. One always misses their roots.

    Siddhartha:

    Thank you. Its never too late to actually see that place..right?
    Rather than just knowing it in the google maps..I mean.. :)

    Aakriti:

    Thank you for this wonderful comment :)

  16. Princess:

    ok..so..you are enjoying me opening up..?
    Well..don't have your hopes too high. ;)

    I knew 'The Lost Dream' was about your old home, which in a way saw you become what you are today. :)

    Sub:

    Thank you. Its true when you say that if we can not be proud of our roots..then we can be proud of ourselves. Even if its ego..I won't let this feeling go. :)

    Neeraj:

    Thank you very much. :)

  22. You have a lovely handwriting. Which has put me off slightly. Mine is almost ugly in the way it forms its curves. I can't seem to help it. And our birth places. So special. Not so for others.

    We shifted house 5 times since I was born. It was always a good change. And great memories from each of the place. I like it that I got to share my childhood with so many different rooms, localities, neighbors..

  23. Your handwriting is nice.
    I never visit the place I was born, only the city (Oslo).
    Thanks for you visit and comment!:-)

  24. You have still preserved your handwriting!!! I don't even remember how mine looks like. Nice concept. :)

    Anyway, I visit my old room only twice a year. It still exists, and I guess it always will...

  25. kaafi purani kahawat hai - Intezar ka phal meetha hota hai.. n mujhe meetha pasand hai.. I don't mind even in that case.. ;)

  26. Kunal!! Your writing shows you are quite an ambitious person, the slant in the writing and the way you write from left to right and go higher, same thing with your signature :)

    Way to go!!

    Apologies, I got carried away as I have read tiny bit about the handwriting analysis ;)

    And, this was amazing...you should do this more often :)

    I never really had a room....:)

    Cheers
