Creative pursuits are always dotted with emotional wave-forms. These periods of indeterminate intimacy with the heart perhaps propel the mind to vent out one’s innermost feelings. These thought waves show up as creations to the world outside. The world within is glimpsed by the world without. However, can words completely map feelings? They invariably fall short. You might be able to vent much of it through your sketch, poetry, or song but the iceberg that you see is not the iceberg that exists. Chester Bennington of Linkin Park is no more with us. Our first article A Thousand Suns puts one of the most discussed and polarising albums of Linkin Park into perspective and dedicates itself to the days that we are going to live without one of the most heard voices on this planet.
On our website, we had published our thoughts on our reading of the book – Josephine MacLeod and Vivekananda’s Mission by Linda Prugh in June this year. It was a deeply immersive read for us. About a month later, we had the opportunity to interview the author who also serves as the Secretary of the Vedanta Society of Kansas City. Linda’s Josephine is a conversation that the editorial team at Bookstalkist shall cherish for long.
We intend to make you reflect upon the subjects we discuss. A reflective piece has its own special place in the world of literature because of the unflinching participation of the writer as well the reader. That’s a precondition for the articles we decide to publish. We hope all the specimens of writing in the present issue will make you sigh, think, ponder, and reflect.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the contributors for associating with us.
