Every now and then,
I do contemplate.
I sit and wonder
Go over all of it
Every little detail, aspect
Of my insignificant, yet significant
Little piece of life
A solitary being of no consequence
In this vast, vast universe
Am I actually just a grain of sand?
Or do I really possess the power to move a mountain?
Leaving my footprint etched for newer generations
To carry on the legacy of the old
Indeed, it is a strange, strange new world.

I hold my breath
The flowing, meandering waves encompass my very being
A heaviness descends upon my being as I make my way through the depths of the ocean
Miles and miles of crystal clear reflections
I feel it hit my skin and make me feel alive once again.
Because before, i seemed to have lost my senses
In that depth, that abyss
Of the deep dark ocean.

I am Devangana, an Indian undergraduate student who just completed her bachelor’s degree in Science from a prestigious Indian college, St.Xavier’s, Kolkata.
I am 20 years of age, soon to be 21 and am kind of going through a semi-awkward phase where I’m not sure of what exactly I want to academically pursue and achieve in my field of study. I have been studying Microbiology honours, but am not exactly sure whether I would call myself passionate towards this field of study. I have been a decent student in the past, but honestly, I have been missing a sense of freedom and space to understand myself and analyze my thoughts and express myself in a way that I would have liked otherwise. Somehow the rigorous nature of the course that I have been studying in has taken away from me my personal space of creativity. That is perhaps what I wish to achieve by writing my own blog, re-acquaint myself with my creative, expressive side and stay closely in contact with the written word, because I love words, phrases, expressions and everything to do with it.
Of course I would like to indulge in discussion and intellectual activity to keep myself stimulated. Maybe also learn how to write humour…
Finally, I recently re-discovered the joy I feel on reading a good book, books in general. What would we do without them?
