Charcoal: A love found

In august last year, I have tried my hands on one of the exquisite form of art, Charcoal painting. As messy it is to put your thoughts through the black char, it comes out equally beautiful once you are able to handle it. The first painting is of a girl. As they say- Truly the life is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the hope for a sweeter one.

I sketched the second one, Radhe-Krishna on Janmashtami, birthday of Lord Krishna  as an ode to the ethernal love.

Only Love: Erich Segal

Book Review

Rating: 2.5/5

A short love story of Silvia and Matthew, hailing from completely different social background and brought together by their affection for music. Two lovers vowed to spend their life together only to fall apart in pieces.

This is the second book I have read that is written by Erich Segal. Love Story was brilliant in its portrayal of evident and non-evident emotions. Only Love, throughout its length was also impeccable, the everlasting bond between Matthew and Evie and the magnetism between Matthew and Silvia. A heartbreaking story of a love lost and a love found. But when it comes to end, how he (Matthew) can say that I have always loved you, Evie. We, as human, always keep parts of them whom we loved once. One can be free and moved on. And in order to do so, we forgive them and ourselves, keep the good memories with ourselves and not put blame on the other one. Whatever the reason Silvia had for her disappearance from his life whether it was sense of responsibility or fear for survival, it cannot change the fact what she and Matthew had once was beautiful and it was Love.
