The Critic's Loss

In music, poetry, even a game of cricket
so much pleasure, enjoyment is lost
on slipping into the garb of hard core critic
whether by choice or playing designated role

Knowingly or unknowingly, you slip from
Soul consciousness to body consciousness
losing spontaneity, forfeiting

the sheer pleasure of unbridled appreciation!


  1. This is so true. Beautifully said :)

  2. Add to it the fact that most of the time the people giving criticism do not understand art/music/literature. Criticism is mostly given just for the sake of giving a feedback and to present oneself as clever and intellectual.

    1. Very nice observation. This happens when the person is in a body conscious state.Thank you Amit for going into the essence and giving your take on the subject!
