The Myth of Sisyphus

myth of sisyphus” It is during that return,that pause,that Sisyphus interests me.A face that toils so close to stones is already stone itself ! I see that man going back down with a heavy yet measured step towards the torment of which he will never know the end.That hour like a breathing-space which returns as surely as his suffering,that is the hour of consciousness .At each of those moments when he leaves the heights and gradually sinks towards the lairs of the gods,he is superior to his fate.He is stronger than his rock….”

Physician by profession, I like to spend my spare time reading literature and philosophy, getting to know different cultures and exploring various forms of creative expressions,..paintings,music, photography, cinema, theatre, sculpture and of course poetry. I usually write in my mother tongue Gujarati and sometimes in Hindi and English. Nehal’s world is at the crossroads of my inner and outer worlds, hope you like the journey…
