All that glitters

I feast my eyes as I lie under the star encrusted sky;

Under the gazillions of stars that twinkle and glitter,

Sprinkled high up, like in Van Gogh’s starry night.

They soothe my depleted spirit, they make me sigh.


But I know deep in my heart that all that glitters

Or exhibits brilliance need not be brilliant in itself.

For brilliance can be reflected, just like the stars

Reflect the light of the sun that is the emitter.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
