A TUESDAY FEATURE


host: Muskaan Ahuja

“Happiness is something that multiplies when it is divided.”


– Paulo Coelho


Paulo Coelho, (born August 24, 1947) is a Brazilian lyricist and

novelist known for employing rich symbolism in his depictions of the often spiritually

motivated journeys taken by his characters. Coelho was raised in Rio de Janeiro. His

novel ‘The Alchemist’ was an international best seller.


So, I will be sharing interesting quotes by him every Tuesday which I am sure would help you read, write and reflect!


The time spent with family and friends is a source of happiness for all of us.

A festive season or birth or a wedding or maybe a get-together of old friends – these

moments are truly golden in our lives.

What is your haiku that you wrote celebrating such moments?


I have a poem coming to my mind:



cricket fever

the CEO talks batting order

with the peon


--- Quamrul Hassan


(From the book, Naad Anunaad)
