Review of Hannah  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: E | (4.0)
This is a small, enjoyable article about a palindrome. Many people would know the meaning of the word but few would be able to name five or even three. Here, the author gives as many as forty examples!
A job well done.

This is a small nice anecdote about doing an admirable deed (saving a drowning child). Such small deeds help keep our life meaningful and worthwhile. The style is fine.

You have given practical hints about how to overcome writer's block. Some readers may benefit from it.

As regards myself, I have never suffered writer's block. There is so much to do that if one window gets closed, another opens up.

The main thrust of this small piece is that ---- I want to feel your touch, your heartbeat and warmth and tenderness etc. I believe forever that we both are for each other.........

The expression of such feelings is fine. What is not fine is calling this write an essay.

This a small and interesting article on the ancient Egyptian history and architecture. Being small and being question-answer based, it is easily readable. It helps that the author belongs to such culture.

TO HELP YOU:

Born from a famous king who is Akinaton,
>>> Born to a famous king


The researchers found many other proves

Review of Fix  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: 18+ | (3.5)
This poem does convey what it intended to convey--summarised in the last three lines as follows--

After all this why do you need me
I can't even fix myself
But I somehow get stuck fixing everyone else.

There are no mistakes.

Review of Human Upgrade  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: 18+ | N/A (Review only item.)
This is an unusual story, a sort of scientific fiction. A lady, the inventor, comes to a patent attorney who demands 600 dollars as the patent fee. She fumes out, thinking the amount to be too high. She leaves behind the gadget to be patented--a can opener with multiple other faculties. And, so on .......

The story is well told. There are no mistakes.

Review of His Night  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: E | (3.0)
COMMENTS:

1--The form of poetry you have written is not known to most readers. It would be appropriate to explain the form or provide a link to such explanation.

2--Year does not rhyme with appeared.

Born does not rhyme with warm.

3--Internt search led me to the following:

https://www.writersdigest.com/write-better-poetry/...

rimas dissolutas is a poem that rhymes and doesn't rhyme. For instance, each stanza contains no end rhymes, but each line in each stanza rhymes with the corresponding line in the next stanza--sometimes employing an envoi at the end.

This is a nice story, whether actual or otherwise.

Here are a few corrections you might like to take care of:

This is a time in my life where I was cought between heaven and earth
>>> caught


My heart was broken unlike its ever been before or since.
>>> it has ever been


The heavy burden that sweet precious man had to live with, were no more
>>> was no more.

Thanks for letting the readers know about the ancient architectural feats of Egypt.

Did the advent of Islam cause damage to the great pre-Islamic culture of Egypt?

The question-answer style is quite helpful.

This is an excellent write, especially because it is in a Question-Answer format which makes understanding the subject easy.

I am surprised to note that it was written about 4 years ago and has only one rating of 2.5 stars!

This is a nice little article about blood pressure for a layman.

It would be advantageous to write a line or two about hypertension being a silent killer. It would be also good for the lay reader to emphasise the need for exercise, weight control and salt control for those having high BP.

Ref: Indeed for example 14/09 and 15/09 can be absolutely normal for certain persons at the same time this can be a dangerous sign for another one.

>>> The above is pretty confusing. Did you mean 140/90 and 150/90 mm. of Hg?

This is a nice true story as experienced by the writer. While he was swimming (during training), he found that a large number of swallows congregated at the roof of the swimming pool.

Well, that certainly was an amazing experience!

This article emphasises and advises about the importance of not overspending during the holiday festivities so as to avoid depression that may follow (because of financial issues) once the festivities are over.

The above advice is a sane advice which, as a matter of fact, is inbuilt in the Asian / oriental psyche. The Western culture is more in need of such advice, especially as regards year-end holidays and festivities.

There are certain language issues but they deserve to be ignored because English is not the first language of the writer.

This is a long poem alternately showing the thoughts and moods of a man and a woman in relationship, with some reference to violence, vibrator, jail and death thrown in.

It is written cleverly. There are no mistakes.

Review of The white horse  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: E | (3.0)
This item is difficult to comprehend well because of the following:

1--An unclear story;
2--Language issues.

Ref: When people will no longer be human and will turn their backs on you, the horse as a twin comrade of both the soul and spirit, will take you into his living world where time is full by the realization made of an infernal perseverance, of wonders.

>>> Maybe you meant infinite perseverance in place of infernal perseverance. [Infernal means hellish].

Review of The fairy  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: E | (3.0)
Comprehending this story / dialogue was enigmatic.

The item is described as --"A dialogue between the fairy and a child about the beauty of the world the will to live."

However, the ending of the item is as follows:

"Yes you will command like a king and will pierce surely the glory and success world .And when death will carry me, your mother will stay alive in your memory in order to lead you.
Tomorrow you will command like a king a world which even though is great but malleable between your hands.
The life will be yours even your inherited blindness."

Was this child blind?

If yes, how would he see "the beauty of the world".

Moreover, did the fairy not have the power to cure the child's blindness?

Also, where does the "the will to live" fit in?

This is a reciprocal review.

Review of Broken Pieces  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: 13+ | (3.5)
I don't really know what to say about this item. I am a male aged 79 and have seen a bit of the world, having been an Army officer, a professor of Medicine and, since 2001, a practicing advocate in Indian courts. The writer of this item and the character of the piece are both ladies.

I am unable to fully appreciate the sentiments of the girl here. To me, they seem hyperbolic, typical of the thought that all men are demons and all women are virtuous sufferers.

I know what I wrote above may be objectionable to many, but I have to be honest in my views and I am just being honest. [However, being honest does not mean I am necessarily correct.]

The writing style is good. There are no mistakes.

MY COMMENTS:

1--You apparently wanted to present this information as an essay. An essay should have paragraphs with, preferably, an introduction and a summary. However, you have written independent sentences without grouping them into paras. Grouping sentences into paragraphs helps the reader understand the subject matter properly. On the other hand, it helps the write also, enabling him to present his thoughts / information in a proper, categorical and sequential manner.

2--Tobacco is a health public problem.
>>> Public health problem.

3 --many tobacco firms found their selves disappointed and near ruin
>>> found themselves

Review of Burning Embers  
Review by Dr M C Gupta
Rated: E | (3.5)
MY COMMENTS:

1--When you write an uncommon poetic form, it would be better if you define the form or give a link to the same, so as to help the ignorant reader.

2--I found the following link--
http://www.shadowpoetry.com/resources/wip/triquatr...

3--As per the definition given therein, there are two obvious mismatches in rhyming:

i)--I love you and no one else, the stories you have heard are false.
>>> else and false don't rhyme.

I can keep up with you my dear, I won’t fall behind again.
