Book Review: Tuck Everlasting

Tuck Everlasting
By Natalie Babbitt
Number of pages: 139
Genre: Children’s fantasy novel, drama
Publication date: 1975

I spotted this novel one day , and instantly requested the owner to allow me to read it first. What made me so impatient to read a book that I won’t wait for my turn to get it? Simple answer, the title “Tuck Everlasting” caught my attention and sparked enthusiasm for me to read it.

The novel revolves around a very interesting story of a family and an eternal life.
Natalie Babbitt, did a beautiful job capturing the emotions of all characters along with vivid and rich imagery with light touch of humour throughout the book.

The story starts off with an adventure of a ten year old girl Winnie Foster who is tired of her family daily routine and decides to run away from her home town called Treegap. In her quest to run away she meets a seventeen year old boy Jesse along side of a pond and from there the author takes over with an interesting story about the family of Tucks and a mystery behind the spring water. Complications arises when a stranger follows Winnie Foster and find out the secret behind the spring water.

The story not only revolves around eternal life but beautifully captures the sincerity and purity of various human emotions and a special bond of friendship while leaving a reader with a question to think about towards the end of the story about immortality.

I will definitely recommend this book and give it a five star.

Black, White or Grey

“Black, White or Grey” – is a very diverse topic of discussion with different conclusions drawn by each and every one. However, it is important to consider that how this phenomena fits itself in the form of a communication and dealing with people? It is an established fact that everyone has different personalities with different behavior traits. Some individuals seem themselves fit in the category of highly sensitive people, while other consider themselves as strong, stubborn and not easily affected by criticism or negativity around them.

5 fingers

Starring at steam coming out of my hot tea in my favorite tea mug, one thought after another came in my mind and then faded away just like hot steam from my tea started to settle down.

I then looked at the title I gave to my article – “5 fingers”. Instantly my mind started to reel at various incidents around the globe among various communities, religions, race, and countries. Of course media plays a very powerful role in delivering these incidents to us. However, sometimes creating a positive influence on others yet at times fueling up negative thoughts and emotions among individuals of all age groups. Whatever, the impression might be given by media, the outcome sometimes fades away instantly and sometimes it lasts forever.

Developing as a person

Back in school days I always used to wonder what does “developing as a person” really mean. At times the message communicated through educational institutes and professionals conveyed dual and mixed message to understand this term. Does developing as a person mean higher grades or does it mean to excel and thrive among yourself to become a more accepting and understanding individual?

How can I help?

I decided to do this blog post as I get asked how can one help in supporting a humanitarian cause be it helping Rohingya Refugees, victims of terrorists attacks, natural disaster, violence, health matters, importance of education, or any number of other issues that are happening around the globe. I myself used to struggle around thinking of ways of giving my best back to humanity. However, we all have limitations. Our limitations are around unable to travel to those parts of the world and physically helping those who are in great need of financial and medical aid. This does not mean that we should get disheartened and give up.  Take some time and read the following steps one can take and make a difference around the world even from their electronic devices. Always remember change is a constant process and does not happen overnight. One single step, even a thought of making a difference around the globe and reaching out starts the cycle of change and creates vibrations in the universe that overtime reaches out and affects everyone.

In the midst of events
When judgment is foggy
And pain unbearable
When night seems longer
And days are unhappy
I want to quit, run and hide
Letting my fears to win over me
But then I hear this voice
Gearing me in the direction I missed
Reminding me of my inner powers
Lifting my soul, bringing out my strength
To be a healer, a fighter, a hero
I bow my head in silence
To thank Him for not letting me give up.
