             After a long while of moratorium i sat to write again using shades and shards of scribblings. It had been a while of struggles,up until now, against my inner scruples, and it almost seemed as if the poet had become entangled in a psychosomatic asylum, a psychological abberation.  I would have given a compendious reportage of the arduous bouts i had with myself but space and time abhors vacuous exegesis and since the past is a heap of withered branches i have chosen to ex-foliate it from my being as an excrement. Needful,though, to say, these ordeals have heaped on me mammoth lessons: to make premonitions before peregrinations. It has taught me to recognize the lethargy in anarchy, the principles in simplicity, the beauty in silence, and the dignity in humility. These were colossal lessons for a benign mind.
              Yesterday, i was enmeshing myself in a video clip, and the lessons i learnt from the clip are immortal. The clip talked about some few individuals who had influenced the world positively and immensely. Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther, Wright Brothers... These individuals paid the prize for greatness. The reticence, the denigrations and vilifications, the segregations...the only thing they didn't suffer from was nothing. They were viewed as madmen at first, but due to their importunity, they made the world recognize the slim line between genius and madness. 
              Hellen keller, the blind poet, made a simply profound and profoundly simple statement. she said; "History is simply the biography of great men". I want you to brood over that statement and tell me what you think about it.

               Below are the pictures of some who left foot prints on the sands of time.

                                           MAHATMA GANDHI (1869-1948), The indefatigable puritan

                                               ALBERT EINSTEIN(1879-1955), Thinker and Scientist.
