I Write & Want to Create Graphic Novels – Sample Writing: The Deadly Embrace – A Buddhist Thanka or nightmare of a Wild Goddess? A dark deity, much bigger than me – the goddess with black radiance - embraces me with her arms, her lips red and her enormous tongue jutting out ready to eat me up. My naked body she holds in a deadly embrace and it is akin to a timeless, tight embrace - a volcano of energy I feel is being transmitted on to me. Dark matter or the goddess with glowing eyes, a bluish black tinge of colour on her glistening dark bare skin, primal energy Shakti - personification of the force. I am as if riveted to her, my head falling back, my yellow body in contrast to the black contours of her form - her bosom crushing my ribs with several kilo-tons of cosmic power – I am truly terrified.
Writing Continued… Red and yellow flags all around in the background and several little elfs and demons, surround me baring all their jagged teeth as if ready to dig into the leftovers of me, if anything was left after the goddess devoured me herself. Her long grey nails dig deep into my back and squash all my pain at the same time I feel numb and a strange free-floating feeling as if attaining a state of perfect calm, I can see a blurry scene as blood oozes out of her mouth, the very state of the mother in her most terrible form. I close my eyes and let it be, the ringing of bells continue and the surrounding atmosphere turns red and crimson from the diffusing blood. I vividly view the scene as if I were not the victim or the exalted – I am a third person. As I remain in this state – rapidly losing consciousness I am about to collapse – but the goddess holds on to me as if I were a corpse or a dear son!
Poetry!!! College Campus on Cloud Nine. Rabidbrain, Glumchum,Bottleneck and Hohum.Sitting over a bottle of orange rum,Checking pockets for rupees, some.Sweetie swine, friend of mine;Blabbers Neitzsche and explains Einstein.Joining in on RocketScience and BellyDaince;Who can lecture on anything from Relativity to Psycho Conscience.Glimmerick, FattyChick,Two of them who are always sick,MonsterMani and Always Funny.Call out for some extra dose of NimbuPaani.SubhoRatRi and Namastewaali;Talk of Hemingway's vices, of Picasso's folly,Eclectic ViolinVaasu and Erudite Jhaptaali!Argue on Mozart, Ravishankar and fight over Salvador Dali. Over uber intellectual talk they dine.Reunion done, feeling sleepy and having gorged onMeat of a sheep or perhaps a porcupine?Raise a last cheers, break and move on.Back then at the college campus,Among enlightening adda and general ruckus.With coffee, tea and half-cooked snacks; life was fine.For professors, study and exams the mind will always pine.Ah! College Campus on Cloud Nine.Oh! College Campus on Cloud Nine. MORE: http://shamitb.blogspot.com/search/label/Poetry

THANK YOU! One regret till date is the fact that I have not been able to travel abroad (outside of India) due to lack of opportunities or circumstances and work pressure or academics etc (whatever…) . Being very open minded and with a global outlook, a voracious reader on diverse topics from all over the world, I would love to travel, work and socialize across nations and learn. Looking forward to international opportunities, as well as domestic opportunities as independent consultant, thought leader, coordinator and as a team player on collaboration/marketing/management options in the Arts and Culture space!
