A star that shattered like a glass

Cassiopeia-A, its name

A supernova remnant, when captured

In a telescopic lens, it showed

The colours of peace that overtook the space

When the star exploded

Breaking the shell into pieces

To embrace the space

To become one

Dying not, but evolving

Into what is the infinite

Not far or near, but everywhere

Direction-and-distance-free

Beaming brightly, lives

The star that shattered like a glass.


The structure contains cosmic dust, which has the potential to coalesce under gravity over time, to grow and grow and eventually form brand new stars.

Ode to the Book – Easy SUDOKU Puzzles

Literary Nonsense
Su-Do-Ku time, anytime!

There is a book and it goes by the name

Easy SUDOKU Puzzles, it’s part of a series –

Medium SUDOKU Puzzles, Hard SUDOKU Puzzles.

All I can say is don’t buy the Easy ones.

The reason is damn straightforward,

Easy ones are way too easy and damn

Full of mistakes and it begins from the

Very first page. It makes you feel stingy.

Instead of creative juices flowing in your brain,

You fall asleep on the book and drool all over it

The book then sits eating dust and you forget it

Completely. And when you look at it, you start crying.

Friends might mock you for buying the book -Easy SUDOKU Puzzles;

They will crush your feelings and not understand,

Some will even question you as an individual.

Forget them, forgive yourself and solve the puzzles nevertheless

Or you can write a blog about it and kill the readers,

Oops!
