See the upside in the downside – Poetry and Quotes + Sets For Sundays – Episode #024

Life is a funny proposition, it throws you down suddenly every time you’re up and feeling great. Everyone must, in this life, experience downs but it’s what you make out of it and what you learn out of it that counts.

Be smart and see the good side of it. At least you’re not broke and needing to feed a family of children. Be grateful of your beginnings and family protecting and caring for you. Make peace with them if there are misunderstandings. It’s hard, believe me, I know but thank them everyday and live your life.

See the good side of everything, it’s a lessson and a path to something more, something better. Life is funny, it makes you strong and prepared for the future by making you go through struggles.

Parents, don’t raise your kids by spoiling them with whatever they want, it only makes them dependent on you. Chances are if they’re raised rich they will end up being horrible human beings. They’ll feel entitled and have egos and not think about the people who struggle. I’ve met a lot of such people but I don’t associate with them too much.

People who get drunk and abuse or fight with waiters and the little guys threatening them saying their dads will do harm to them and stuff if they don’t get their way. They’re just doing their jobs trying to feed their family.  So stop being entitled pricks. Nobody is entitled to anything. We just play with the hands that are dealt when we’re born. It could’ve been you in their position, so put yourself in people’s shoes. They are people too, who are doing their jobs and trying to make ends meat. Treat people equally and well.

Keep your kids broke and make them work hard to earn money and make a living for themselves. They’ll understand life better that way.

See the up in the downs. If you’re going through something talk to people about it. You’ll find a way out. Help people and don’t expect anything in return. The ones who will help you out when you need it might be the most unlikely ones. But yes – help people, as much as you can. Live a life of meaning.

I wrote this quote last week and I thought I’ll share it with you. Here are some quotes and poems for you to read.

And music has some great lyrics at times

Here are some poems I wrote last week. They just pop up in my head(I don’t know why) so I put them together and write them down.

Homecoming's Planet. A bit more classical. Meaning – the first line signifies in two words what Aldous Huxley wrote about the eliminative nature of our brain and nervous system giving us just a trickle of consciousness to perceive necessary for our survival as mammals on this planet. The next lines refer to the countless lives our soul has lived in the analogy 'games we have played' and dreams we have dreamt all leading to our battle with life and its good and bad moments and the elements of life itself. Theres is time for everything ups and downs. Using the analogy soldiers of/with mettle it must surely lead to finding ourselves and a home and love on this planet. Yet how insignificant are we in the grand scheme of the cosmos. It ends hinting at my firm belief that we are not alone in the universe. We don't even know if the universe is finite or infinite so surely there is life somewhere we just don't know. There's a meaning for each poem. Just thought ill share this with its meaning. Cheers!

Requiem for the nightmare . . . Slightly dark but honestly sometimes I look at the world around me and think.. "Is this it? Is this all we're here for? Make money and die? Why? Its a fucking nightmare. " People kill. People change. People do things all for money. don't be like them. Be simple. You don't need 90% of the shit ads tell you. Do more. Find your soul. Grow spiritually. Spirituality is not god its connecting with your soul. Help people. Touch their lives. Do more than address selfish desires. Do more meaningful things.

In metanoia Metanoia – *noun* A change in ones way of life resulting from repentance or spiritual conversion . . . . Also a #porcupinetree album name. This is about a monologue in the head of the struggle between letting go of past experiences and mistakes and working towards a changed present and brand new life. Something I think, a lot of people can relate to. #poem #poems #poetry #gauravkrishnan #endlessnight #book #outidunnowhen #poemsporn #poetsofig #poetssociety #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #poem #poesy #poet #poets #poemsoflife #poetsofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poemstagram #poemsofinsta #poemsofinstagram #words #dailywords #wordporn #life #lifepoetry #poetryisnotdead #indianpoet #wordsforthemoments

The Pirate Poet Anthem

To start off this picture is an original I took at Gokarna’s Paradise beach that I went to back in 2011(the first of many trips there).

I wrote this poem this morning and I loved writing it. It’s inspired by this little chant by the fans of Rayo Vallecano in Spain. As soon as I heard it, my mind began to hum a poem out so I wrote it down. I don’t know when my book ‘Endless Night’ will be out, but I’m working on getting the right publisher because the treatment by publishers in India is really pathetic.

Anyway here is the chant.

And here is my poem

Inspiration is seriously everywhere! You just have to find it.

Have a great week!

Random Word Poetry – Day 1 & 2

Hey Folks,

I hope you all are enjoying the holidays in your countries. Christmas is 9 days away so I hope all of you are having a good time!

In the build up to my book release, I’ve decided to do this v-log or video series where I make a small poem out of a random word everyday. It’s basically to help improve my creativity, writing skills and thought process apart from just something for when I’m bored 😛

My book should be out in two months, I’m currently working with the publishers, ironing out all the details and stuff.

I’ve got a heavy Jim Morrison influence because I’ve read his poetry the most and The Doors are one of my all time favourite bands.

So here are the first two episodes of – Random Word Poetry.

1. Word – Pastrami

2. Word – Scissor

So that’s the first two days, I will keep posting more everyday, so I hope you like it !

And since it’s going to be Christmas soon,  here is my favourite football team in the world wishing everybody a Merry Christmas!

I’ll be back with Sets For Sundays this Sunday and an end of the year playlist titled Goodbye 2016, so stay tuned for that and these Random Word Poems.

Endless Night should be out in February 2017.

Take Care!

Happy Holidays!

Cheers! 🙂



A BAG OF GIFTS – An Essential Software All You People Need / Thom Yorke’s set for BBC Radio One + A small poem

So I thought I’ll do some community service today and give you guys an essential software which I use. This bad boy is a must for all you people who stream your music online, whether podcasts, internet radio streams, youtube mixes etc

How many times have you heard something online and thought, “Damn, I need this on my computer or on my phone”. Well your prayers have been answered.

This software records any sound playing thorough your speakers straight from your sound card! It’s a recorder which has multiple inputs – You can choose your sound card as the input or the microphone but of course choose the the sound card because mics usually are pretty shitty on laptops.

This is a sweet software with a great interface and why I like it the best, is that it saves the audio in such high quality that it sounds even better than the stream online. All you have to do is go to the settings menu and choose high quality audio output.

No more wishing. Save whatever you’re listening to! The only downside is that you’ll have to listen to the whole thing while recording it. But that’s okay.

And guess what, I’m giving you the registration key so it’s absolutely FREE.

Here is the link to the website where you can download it. It’s called Apowersoft streaming audio recorder

And here are the registration codes

License Key:
Email address:
Registration code: 50102981009755565053

When prompted for registration, just copy paste the above email address and code.

As I type this, I’m recording a set by Thom Yorke & Benji B for BBC Radio One which happened at 1am-4am GMT last night in the UK.
It was 630 am in the morning for me, so this set happened this morning!!  FRESH TUNES!
There’s nothing better than fresh tunes or wait probably scoring a 25 yard screamer right into the top corner. I can’t decide, but anyway, here is the link to the radio one broadcast. It’s a must listen!!! If you ever wondered what Thom Yorke listens to, here is a slight preview of it! Man he is legend and will remain one of my favourite musicians of all time.

Here is the BBC Radio One broadcast

And just to say good bye here is a small poem I wrote last night! Stay tuned for my book!


And last but not at all the least here is a picture I took of Eagles flying above my head yesterday. I really love eagles, you know flying highest in the sky!


Be like an eagle, keep your head high, aim for the sky  and be indifferent to all the bullshit!
