River meets the Ocean is a collection of short musings that I wrote as notes to myself during the Covid pandemic. As I was struggling to come to terms with the new normal, and every aspect of life was disrupted, these contemplative moments that I spent writing empowered me to swim through this period with more clarity and contentment.

A drop of water has its unique identity until it reaches the ocean. Once it reaches the ocean, its individuality dissolves and it takes a mightier form. The water all along had all the properties of the ocean but it did not know the full potential until it merges with the ocean. Likewise, humans too think of our limited existence as our true identity and mistakenly cage our limitless potential to thrive and flourish.

This book has been written in free style in the form of short poems. It will be a good read for someone with a contemplative mindset who would like to ponder over deeper questions about life.

As the river meanders to the source
gushing and rushing with the flow
stumbling and changing its course
in the confluence of
the real and the unreal
the seeker and the sought
the knower and the known
It gets to realise
the Ocean in a droplet
the Cosmos within it.

~ Brindha Venkataramani

Coding and poetry share a lot in common and both can complement each other. Just like coding, poetry is a creative process that brings about efficient use of language constructs, that is concise and takes the creator through an emotional journey of hours to make something perfect. Coming from an IT background and having learnt many programming languages over the years, ‘River meets the Ocean’ has been an attempt to write and codify her thoughts in the form of short musings.
