So the next time…

Of late, a lot of forums have come up (WhatsApp groups, Facebook groups, blogger networks etcetera) where people can post their work for honest reviews, feedback and constructive criticism – precisely what they are meant for. 
An artist chooses a medium to communicate. To convey to the world his thoughts, his ideas, his message. When you give the artist your feedback, understand no one is born an expert, no one is flawless. Understand his need to be heard, understand his want to be accepted. Language is just a mode to communicate – so focus more on the message he is trying to convey. The grammar, spelling, rhyme, etcetera are important – but those are meant to be perfected with practice, with experience, with exposure.
So the next time you criticise, make sure you don’t show off your “Grammar Nazi” skills to project how good you are. Or how good your language is. Or how far he is from where you’ve reached. Instead appreciate him for having the guts to step out to communicate with the world. Guide him, help him understand how he can excel at what he does.
Criticism in any form is meant to hit the target, not wound it.

Let yours help the artist improve for the better, not make him shut himself down for good.
P.S. None of this applies to the family, to the teachers, to the best friends who know us even before we learned to communicate..

To Dreams!✨

It’s never too late,

Don’t push something to be destined by fate,

Instead, work your way toward what you want,

There’s​ nothing in the universe, that achieve, you can’t,

For, what you’re seeking, is lying in wait, seeking you,

And all it takes, to reach there, is, efforts true,

Be your own paragon

Become your own icon,

Create for you, a niche that you’d be proud to own,

An identity, a name, that no one can dethrone,

Begin to climb the ladder to a life you think would awesome,

Live to see your dreams blossom!

Relish your journey, revel in your expertise,

Each day in your life, grow more wise!
