A drizzle of love, half promises and memories, laced with infatuation, fleeting moments of desire and incompleteness. The trails of these are thought to be long entombed by the sand clock. A glance through those blurred maze of delirium. Nameless, yet familiar!


The title gives us a hint that Passion is of the nature of seed, and finds nourishment within, tending to a predominance which determines all currents towards it, and makes the whole life its tributary. “Seeds of pomegranate” is a beautiful and an apt title for the book. As every seeds of a pomegranate make the fruit a beautiful one, similarly each photograph along with the prose portrayed in the book makes the book a perfect one. Since the beginning of Greater things starts as a seed. Passion, willingness to learn and tenacity is the key to rising above the average and the mediocre. I believe Keep pushing and the refinery of life will bring out the Gold within you.

Relationships are tenuous, like a fragile seedling. You could ruin its chances at growing and thriving by carelessly trampling it or shrouding it in a canopy of darkness. And also like a seedling, if you give it light and love and time for the roots to grow deeply, it’ll flourish into a majestic redwood. Love and friendship are the two main themes portrayed through this book.

I loved the piece “another autumn”. The concept of togetherness portrayed was brilliant. Just like pomegranate a pineapple is a compilation of berries that grow and fuse together. When joined, they create a single fruit. And within each eyelet, contains a location where a flower may grow. I see the Creator of all existence as the crown on a pineapple, and all religions of the world as the spiky eyelets, where each eyelet symbolizes a different religion or race under the same crown. Each garden of faith may have different perspectives of God, yet every garden belongs to the same God.

There are instances where we find the essence of meeting our true love. “And Then” beautifully describes the fact that Love is the sister to Truth, but they differ in two ways. You must go to Truth to find her. She will never come looking for you. However, you are never to go looking for her sister Love. Love will find you in your own divine timing, when you are ready for her. So don’t look, she will come. She always does.

There are variety of emotions weaved throughout the book. Without waiting anymore order your copies at
