When I started this weblog almost two years back, I didn’t have to think what to name it. It just popped into my mind and I named it "rooted". The name describes me rather well. Rooted for me does not mean to be rooted to all that is around me, my family, my country, my religion or my culture. It has much broader meaning for me. It means my unshaken faith in humanity, my beliefs that all religions can only teach us something good. It is we who interpret it as otherwise.
I write poetry. Poets are assumed to be dreamers. I am a dreamer too. Despite that I stay well grounded. I do not soar above in dreams never to come back. I am practical, pragmatic and rational. At times too pragmatic..:) For me, rooted does not mean that I have to be at one place in order to have a sense of belonging. It can be anywhere and in anyway. It is all within the mind and not just any mundane place. When one is rooted in the mind, one does not need excuses for places, people, religion and culture. In a way, rooted means spirituality for me. Do I make sense?
# I write very short verses too. I can write as little as 4 words verse. I do haigas too. I have a blog too for it. I just do not advertise it at all.
