Trying a concise tribute to Jane Austen, her work and adaptations (if that’s even possible)

When you think about all the love gestures, poured as words, in every romantic novel ever written, there is everything else and then there is this letter written by Captain Frederick Wentworth to Anne Elliot. The letter from Jane Austen’s book Persuasion, that, when I first time read, did unspeakable things to my gut till my soul. I could actually and deeply feel the beautiful words as I could feel rain. I knew in that moment that it will be Jane Austen’s contribution to English literature that will be my example for “par excellence”.

Speaking of the times in the 18th century, when female writers were not allowed to publish books in their own names, I felt Jane Austen wrote about female characters who were ahead of their times. Just thinking about it makes my gut churn out of annoyance, but it is a fact that during the century, female writers had to have a male representative for publishing their books, hence all her books published while she was alive, were anonymous. And yet, Jane’s female protagonists were courageous to speak their minds and stand for themselves. Remember when Elizabeth Bennett fearlessly refused the ridiculous marriage proposal she was offered in Pride and Prejudice. And conversation between Anne and a male friend (in Persuasion). As he tells her that how all books, songs and proverbs talk on woman’s fickleness and inconstancy, to which she very calmly replies “weren’t these all written by men”. Her exact words being “Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.” She ends the conversation saying, “all the privilege I claim for my own sex, is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone!” Just wow!!!!

I will fall short of words if I start describing the astounding male characters of Jane’s books. I have read, re-read her books, watched and re-watched her movie adaptations and I fall for them, their words, their actions, every single time. Be it Fitzwilliam Darcy (Mr. Darcy) from Pride and Prejudice, Frederick Wentworth from Persuasion or George Knightley in Emma, Jane Austen’s words had given the characters such romantic contours and sparkling charms that I cannot help but fall for these characters who are fictional. Jane’s precise timing of the principal (male) characters’ specific words, gestures and actions makes me wonder “can he be any better”. Romance, so beautifully crafted, it gives me goosebumps and butterflies in stomach. The passion between the protagonists, the tension, the confusions, the hidden and unacknowledged romantic connections and the strong yet uncertain emotions, all these overwhelm me. The curves of “will they end up together” or “won’t they end up together” inching towards the climax, feels like an exciting, emotional roller coaster ride to me. And she captures the helplessness of someone fallen in love, so beautifully, you simply fall for the characters.

Jane Austen also has one most sought out endings, common in most of her books, “happy endings”. She proves that a book to be called as classic, doesn’t necessarily means should have a tragic end.

Jane Austen is one of my reasons I prefer female writers (English) over males. Sadly, she died at a very young age of 41. Most of her work was acclaimed after her transition. Two of her books were published posthumously. Some of her books still remain unfinished. Unfortunately, most of her fame came after her. Today, we have numerous adaptations (movies, plays, books) on Jane Austen’s work and I sincerely follow all of those. But somehow I feel that just 6 novels from her were just not enough for us.

Ending on one of the most loved love confessions of all times. Because if you mention Jane Austen, you have to acknowledge Pride and Prejudice. These words soaked in love, from Mr. Darcy to Lizzie, are my all-time favorite. “My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you, you have bewitched me, body and soul and I love...I love... I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on”.
See, how can you not fall for a character who says these words and the author who wrote these characters J

Souls are eternal

I have reached to that age and stage in life where I have realized that everything in life comes down to one universal hard fact “any moment of life can be our last”.

We know the fact yet live in denial for years. We know that we are not our bodies. We are souls, we have bodies. We feel more attached to our bodies as we have never experienced our souls. Accepting the fact that our bodies might not be with us forever becomes hard as we have never seen our souls. We doubt its existence. Therefore, every time someone we love goes through a soul transition it shakes us up to the utmost core. Every time we lose someone close, it breaks us from inside.

I know the hardest thing in life is to cope with the sorrow of losing someone but I also have learnt that there is only one way of saving ourselves from the extreme grief, is by experiencing our divine soul and theirs too. All our souls are so godly, it will take all our efforts, every moment of persistence and everything we have, to connect with our souls and be able to accept all of us, as souls and not as bodies. I have learnt that the moment we realize our existence as souls, will change us forever, even after we lose our existence as bodies. It will change us in ways, which will be beyond our imagination. It will make us realize that our souls are and will be forever. But all we have to do is keep trying to get through the process of realization till acceptance.

And meanwhile, in the process of finding our souls and accepting, we should embrace every moment and every breath as a souvenir from life, reminding ourselves to feel alive than to just stay alive.

This note is to remind us all to be living every moment we have been gifted with, confess love to people you love, call them when they are expecting it, send them messages that touch them, make them laugh, give time to people who need you, let go of grudges and forgive, love people and not materials, become someone's strength in crisis, care a bit more and be kinder to every soul.

This note is to remind us all to love, live and laugh a little more than usual.

This note is to remind us all that all our souls are eternal and will always be.

Me vs. The Day that was

I penned down my thoughts on the rough day that was...

"Yes, the Universe today was itchy and not ticklish as other days;
Things fell, but not in place;
I might have pained in many ways.
And I searched (even on Google) but didn't find any of hope rays.
"Helpless" was the word that kept bouncing in my mind...
And my feelings and this word were totally aligned
But then there was this voice from the invisible
It was almost inaudible, totally negligible..
It might have been the Universe itself or my inner being
It whispered slowly, leaning in... 

"Would you rather succumb to the day or survive? 
It's almost up to You to decide.

Cos it's just a day, not your whole life."

What is your destiny? And who will decide it for you?

“What if it is not your destiny to live that dream you are trying so hard for?”, he asked me skeptically. I knew he meant well but his question churned me from inside out. I stared at him for a while and gave him a confused look, not very sure of how or what to respond. It was a day we were having a thoughtful debate about life and related pieces. From soul to life to mind till destiny, we had been through all subjects with an infectious enthusiasm. We were on the verge of closing the dialog, when my friend’s question about destiny infected me with a virus of negative thoughts. Although I told him I will get back with a response as we parted and dispersed at the end of the day, I was not very sure about it myself.

On my way, back I typed “destiny” on the google home page and smiled at the thought of letting google tell me what my destiny is. A plethora of definitions appeared on the screen but none satisfied my yearning. As I relinquished to that itch of not knowing about what my own destiny is, I also decided to find it out by any means. Be it through books, people, or any other source, I should know what destiny is. Am I destined to live my dreams? Or is it my destiny to just live, earn and pay my bills on time, surrender to society’s idea of settling down, populate the planet, accept my nature of surviving till the day I leave my body. Somehow I was not ready to accept this.

Through time, phases and experiences, through enlightened people and their books, I gradually started to understand it. And realized that people always have misunderstood the word destiny. They use the word negatively, use the word as an excuse when they can’t achieve something, they use the word as an acceptance to not being able to win over something which is beyond their control. Their exact words being, “I couldn’t achieve it because it was not destined”. They think they can’t go against their destiny, unaware that they create their own destiny.

Yes, we have been wrong about it all the way, for what I now know, my destiny is synonymous to me, it is my mirror image, it is something I can shape as I want. It is something I can create on my own. And it is true of every single being on this planet. Our destinies can only be created by us and only us. Our paths of achieving our destinies may vary but are destinies are same. Our destinies are to be our highest selves. And the faster we acknowledge the fact, faster we will be able to achieve our destinies.
In here I sum up what I now understand of our destinies.

1.       Our destiny is to know who we are, and experience ourselves.
2.       It is to find our purpose and fulfill it.
3.       It is to evolve with time and take ourselves to the next highest level and then the next till we reach to our highest self.
4.       It is to accept our faults and act toward remedying those.
5.       It is to realize that our soul is divine and achieve our potential as a super human, as the Universe, as God.
6.       It is to live in pure harmony with nature.
7.       It is to rejuvenate our body till the day we want to use it.
8.       It is to surrender to the idea of perfection of life in the moment but also keep trying to make it better with every moment.
9.       It is to align our souls with the Universe.
10.   It is to unleash the power of our infinite mind.
11.   It is to allow the flow of abundance inside us.
12.   It is to focus only on the positive aspects of life and radiate only positivity to people surrounding us.
13.   It is to achieve the ultimate happiness and stay with it.
14.   It is to reach that state of mind where we feel ecstatic to be alive.
15.   It is to nurture a desire, know it will be ours and create a path to gain that desire.
16.   It is to forgive ourselves for all the wrong paths we have taken and accept those as learnings and not as detours.
17.   It is to commit ourselves to the very moment we are living in.
18.   It is to live all our dreams, the small ones and the ones we find so audacious it scares and excites us at the same time.
19.   It is to have that courage of following our idea of bliss.
20.   It is to live free of the societal ideas for our lives.
21.   It is to love ourselves to the core and know that we deserve the highest level of love.
22.   It is to not settle for anything less than what we deserve.
23.   It is to live the highest form of love with someone whom we connect with at every level.
24.   It is to not accept what others, say about what our destiny is or should be.
25.   It is to design our own destiny.

Today, as I write this, I believe I am ready to answer my friend’s question about my destiny. I know I am destined to live all my dreams, every single one of my dreams. I know my destiny is me with all my dreams.

2017 – The year that was…

Nothing less than a roller-coaster ride, the year 2017 kept me at my edge, out of my comfort zone and pushed me to do things I never had imagined myself doing. Today, with only a few days of the year left, I look back at all the good madness, the grief, the hope, the courage to go beyond the fence I had created for myself, the happiness of shaping my life the way I wanted and thank the year 2017 for all the teachings.
The year that will be remembered as the one, where I lived some of my most cherished dreams, surprised myself in amazing ways and took some unexpected yet fulfilling risks. The year in which I took some astounding steps that it seemed to me that someone else has taken over me. I did different things and, also, did things differently. The year when I witnessed that the things are falling into place, it is all adding up together and everything is started to make sense.
As the year comes to an end, I felt like jotting down the lessons, the year taught me, based on the incidents that happened to me in these twelve months. Here is to the year 2017 as a teacher…
1.       January
·         Take risks. It is always better to take risk and regret later than to not take it at all and regret.
·         Sometimes, plunging into the unknown can seem the craziest to do, but it will also be the most adventurous and fun deed to do.
·         Trust your instinct, let it guide you when you are not sure.

2.       February
·         Happiness, sorrow or the life itself; nothing is permanent. Take it easy.
·         Live as only you can, you don’t know what the next moment is holding for you.
·         Blessings usually come disguised as a dilemma. Just wait and give them some time to reveal.

3.       March
·         You might call them mistakes, but later in life when you look back, these mistakes will bring a smile to your face.
·         Stand for what you believe is right, no matter others agree to it or not.
·         Being positive even if everything seems to be falling apart can be the toughest but the most heroic deed to do.

4.       April
·         Whatever you learn in life, it will not be relevant unless you apply it in life.
·         Don’t be afraid to speak about what you want from people.
·         When you feel good about yourself, you will attract people who make you feel good.

5.       May
·         When life gives you a second chance, grab it without any second thoughts.
·         Your mind will always know the right opportunity to grab, listen to it.
·         Forgive them.

6.       June
·         Patience will take you places.
·         Appreciating yourself will help you rise the quality of your work.
·         Do not carry the work stress to home and to life.

7.       July
·         Keep yourself uplifted if you have taken an uphill road.
·         Worrying about things not going well will not help you get things right.
·         Keep giving your hundred percent, no matter what.

8.       August
·         Raise your vibe to attract people who will be your guides, mentors and your cheer squad.
·         Nurture your subconscious mind with positivity and it will push you and make you take up tasks you feared.
·         Find your mojo and use it.

9.       September
·         Making a month, your best month, is in your hands.
·         When you believe in people, people come through.
·         Everything is inside you, as your beliefs; change your beliefs and life will change from inside out.

10.   October
·         Everything, each of your decision will start making sense one day and things will start falling in place, eventually.
·         When you do, what you love or love what you, there will be no one and nothing stopping you.
·         Get out of your comfort zone; all your dreams lie outside your comfort zone.

11.   November
·         If you love something, you must put in everything you have got to get it. You need to work on strategies, plans, maps and connect all the dots to achieve it.
·         Don’t be afraid to confess love, or your mistakes.
·         Never stop following your passion.

12.   December
·         Be thankful for everything.
·         Dare to choose new beginnings, no matter how novel or conventional they seem.
·         Celebrate life!!!

As I usher into a new year or the new year enters my life, I wish you all (and myself) an extraordinary year ahead. Here is to the year 2018!!!

No one knew about it because I chose not to tell anyone

Disclaimer: I write this after I accumulated all my courage to open up. I write this because a friend of mine found it difficult to comprehend that a girl like me had gone through such a phase. I write this on behalf of millions of other people who still are not ready to write about theirs. I write this because I am not ashamed of it anymore and am profoundly proud of myself for defeating it without the armor of medication or counselling. I write this because I want to share how I overcame it. I write this to represent people who find it impossible to acknowledge that they have/had depression.

I have been there, seen that, felt it, felt the ache, cutting through my soul. Felt the pain, the desperation, the feeling of loss, the feeling that something has died inside me. Writing this brings back some of the most awful memories but today these memories don’t affect me anymore. In fact, I am smiling write now, smiling as I write about the phase which I can, without any second thought, coin as the worst phase of my life.

The pain was so brutal and unforgiving, it seemed it was clutching my heart, grabbing it so tightly that I was not able to breathe. They say mental pain is almost like physical pain. And I was living this fact. I used to feel someone has stabbed my heart and tore it into pieces. Yes, this is exactly how I felt. Crying had become a second nature to me. Insomnia came next, dark circles around my eyes came after that. I used to walk a lot, for hours, aimlessly without any idea of where I was going. I used to walk, as if hoping to walk away from my pain. My ambitions, purpose, career, everything seemed blurry. Life seemed blurry. May be because of my “always teary eyes”. I used to cry myself to sleep.

I chose not to confess this, not to take psychiatric help. I always have been a secretive person, always good at keeping secrets, and I kept this as secret and decided to take this feeling of void to my grave. Not even my closest of people knew what I was going through. My mind used to keep asking one question, on a repetitive mode “why me?”. As it got worse with time, I reached to the lowest of the lows where I started questioning my life. Scary thoughts of wishing it would end soon. Still I couldn’t get the courage to ask for help. I had accepted that I will never be able to come out of this abyss.

It was almost 1 year since it got bad to worse. I didn’t even realize what I might have until one day I overheard some of my friends talking behind my back, something about them convincing and talking me out to go to a psychiatrist for help. And then it stuck me hard. Was I depressed? I googled the word “depression” for the first time in life. And was able to relate to almost all the symptoms (except for the self-destructive thoughts). Acceptance was the toughest. For days, I didn’t believe that I might have depression. I knew I had to do something, but “what”, seemed like the toughest question ever. I used to search out names and addresses of psychiatrists near me and used to stare at the names imagining how would I open up about the pain I was going through. I was not ready to share and speak about it. Few more days passed and I still was clueless about what was happening, still used to cry my eyes out, still used to sit in a dark room staring outside the window.

And then one fine Saturday morning, I looked outside the window, and it was raining. It looked so beautiful, I felt the rain washing the pain for me. For no reason at all, I felt exceptionally ecstatic. For no reason at all, I laughed out loudly, it felt weird. Not only because it was loud, but also because I had laughed after so long, I had almost forgotten how I felt like. I didn’t know if I felt superlatively happy because it was part of one of my mood swings or it was because of the rains but this was the day I felt fear and courage existing simultaneously inside me. Fear of losing myself if I don’t fight and the courage to fight back. I knew I had to do everything possible, to get out of this impossible void I had gotten myself into.

Distracting myself was the first thing I knew I had to do. So, I began with none other than Music as therapy.  I discarded all the sad cassettes and started using my walkman only for cheerful music. I started getting back to all the hobbies I had renounced completely. I started with singing and dancing. Singing was at number one on my priority list. I started singing in weird voices, to make myself laugh. Dancing at fast numbers, as if no one was looking. Yes, I was so desperate to bring back my old self. And it started showing some results. At least I started getting rid of my unusual and unwanted tears. Music always does miracles, trust me. In my case, it had started pulling me back from the dead.

Reading came next. I am an avid reader and reading was another hobby I re-ignited during this phase of getting back on my feet. I used to read the thickest of my books in a night or two. It helped me prevent worrying about myself and instead worry about the protagonist in the book. No wonder they say books are your best friends. Not that it showed results immediately, but at least I had started feeling sleepy at nights due to excessive reading.

I got rid of people (so called friends) who used to send me self-pity and sympathetic messages. I realized, they were just extra baggage I had to get rid of. And I did it without feeling any guilt. Not that they were bad people, but I knew that unless I get rid of them, I will never get rid of the past they all were part of. Trust me, it was a big relief and I felt lot lighter.

Yoga calmed me in a way I can’t explain. Although I always used to do yoga, I earlier had no idea on effects of Yoga on mind apart from my body. It was the phase I used to practice rigorous yoga. It worked wonders for me to begin with and it started soothing my mind in a way which was inexplicable.

But as time flew I again started finding it difficult to manage life. It was that moment I realized I had to resuscitate my ambitions as well and I knew how to do that. Changing air, water, house, street, place, job and people around was the last resort for me. This was the cusp of me getting rid of my depression. I left my job and the city I was living in and to be honest, as we drove out of that city, that was the first time ever I realized I had left my depression in that city forever. I knew I would never look back, and in that moment, I again had tears in my eyes, but this time, these tears were of pure bliss.

It took almost 1 year of my rigorous struggle in a new city, to find a new job and settle with it; and all my life’s effort to prevent myself plunging back into depression. This was also the time I realized that how I unknowingly was using the law of attraction to leave the city I didn’t want to live in. I used to affirm myself that I would be leaving this city by the end of a specific month. And guess what? I left that city by the end of that month, and with that I left all my sorrows and never looked back. I knew, I had done it, all by myself, knowingly and unknowingly, because I wanted to do it.

Today I open about my depression, but there are so many people who have it but it is never accepted by them or acknowledged by their family members. They live in a fear surrounded by social stigma, suffocating inside. I wonder why does it take a celebrity’s confession for people to acknowledge that it is serious and people with depression need support and love? Why is it so hard for people to comprehend the fact that it’s not a phase, it will not get over by itself? Also, people in depression are not doing drama.

Although choosing not to ask for help was not the right thing I did, but today I feel proud of the fact that I overcame it myself. I have reached to a point where I can laugh at my own depression. Not because I won and it lost. But because it is part of who I am today. It made me realize I can come through anything harsh. It made me recognize how strong I am. It was the reason I regained my identity, my ambitions and started my journey of finding my purpose. I wish everyone ever, going through such anguish, gets through this, and opens up to the fact that life is too worthy to be wasted for a person, phase, or event.   

P.S.: I thank my depression, the inspiration behind this blog.

Life lessons from kids can demystify The Law for us!!

Running senselessly till I am out of breath, laughing uncontrollably till my stomach starts hurting and playing games that are so childish, I start questioning my maturity level. Yes, playing with my nieces is like travelling back in the 80s. The time when my only wish was to grow up, me oblivious of the fact that growing up would only make life complex. Playing with them is also like working out because they never let me rest (as if they are my personal trainers) and I find myself trying exceedingly hard to match with their energy level. Sometimes, it becomes tough as well but to be around them and stay crazy is priceless. And there are innumerable things I learn from them; I might even allow them to have regular classes for me and grown-ups like me. Every time I see a twinkle in their eyes, I catch it unknowingly. Their lighthearted laughter is infectious and so care free, it makes me forget everything I am fretting about. And I wish, if only, I could learn and be like them, I will always find myself on cloud nine for no reason, be less prone to the drama around and more receptive to the fact that the Universe is magnificently magical.

Being around their unusually ecstatic company and listening to their exquisite conversation, I have started believing that kids are Universe’s way of telling us to be like them if we want ourselves to be happier, appreciative, pleased at everything around and connected with our source, like they are. There are life lessons they teach us, that can be so transforming, we as grownups should rethink on spending more time with them. If I could replicate at least one of their qualities below, I will be pulled a bit closer to my source. Also, if we observe these lessons minutely, they demystify the universal law of attraction for us. Let us dissect the learning and see how it all fits together to simplify the law for us.

They are enthusiastically energetic, and so full of life, most of the time (touchwood!!). It takes so much of extra efforts for us to keep up with their energy level. It is as if they are some kind of highly vibrating energy balls. And if you are around them, there is no way you will not be able to match their energy frequency. It is infectious. If we can exhibit their kind of enthusiasm toward life and its challenges, we automatically will start raising our vibes and feeling good. And once we start feeling good, the law will take its course and one by one, our pieces of troubles will start resting in peace.

The unconditional love they offer to everyone, without any judgement or conditions or expectation, can we ever love like them? Sometimes I think they recognize people (even if they are strangers) through their vibes and automatically connect with them. And if they like you, they don’t care if you like them back. If we match with their vibe, they will love us anyways. And that is how they easily attract back love, even it is from a stranger. Loving like a kid, with no conditions and radiating love for everyone around us is what we need to learn. Reflecting love always bring love back to us, as they already say “like attracts like”.

For them, the tiniest of the things is proportional to the vastest of happiness. They can effortlessly find pleasure in the simplest things. From a broken doll to a funny looking key chain, from a tiny twig to a clumsy sketch, everything is amusing for them. Seems like they want us to learn how to find joy in life’s simplest things, instead of waiting for some monumental event. And yes, it teaches us to appreciate everything we have in life right now, even though it is small, to attract a major life altering miracle.

Have you all noticed how persistent are they when they want something. If they want something they want it with all their heart and are so determined, they usually don’t give up until they get that. They have all their focus on that one toy which they believe will bring them happiness. You might call this obstinacy; I call it persistence. Something that teaches us how to be persistent for our dreams and goals, keep it in your mind and focus on those, every time you have time. Be it through your affirmations or consistent thoughts, be it through your visualization or through your words, believe in the fact that you have achieved your dream. Be persistent for your dream and the Universe will be persistent in helping you achieve it.

Forgiveness was never my forte and I think it is difficult for us all, but see how quickly they forgive each other. Sometimes in a few seconds, they are from each other’s worst foes to best of friends. Isn’t this something you would like to grasp from them? Instead of clinging to our anger, forgiving it and letting go will be the best gift we can offer to our soul. The law says that if you can’t forgive your past, you can never be grateful for your present and can never achieve the future of your dreams. Forgiving and letting go is one of the first few steps we all will have to take to continue on our journey to the destination of our dream life.

If you have to witness make-believe at its best, watch children’s pretend plays. Psychology says it is healthy part of their social, emotional and cognitive development and every child engages in pretend plays. It is fascinating to watch them making up stories, imagining, role playing and acting as someone else. It is like witnessing a fantasy. They act as fairies, super heroes, prince/princesses or anything they want to be.  It’s something we should learn from them on how to imagine or visualize who we want to be, what we want to achieve or how we want our life to be. Imagining miracles will be one of the most important steps on our way to becoming deliberate creators. (Although I would like to emphasize here that mere imagining success with no action will lead you nowhere. The Law of Attraction has “action” as suffix).

Wow…their belief!!! So strong, so unwavering. They believe in fairy tales and magical kingdoms, queens and kings, princes and princesses. They believe that Rapunzel has magical hair or Cinderella owns a magic shoe. They believe in every magic and everything magical and they believe with all their heart. They never question the existence of miracles. Unswerving and firm, I wish I could have that kind of faith for my dreams. I consider believing in yourself and in the Universe is the most important part of manifesting your dreams and is also the most difficult. But if we can master our belief, we can be the masters of our destiny. And mastering our belief is what we should learn from kids.

Their sense of oneness, their connection with who they know and with those they don’t know. Can we try and learn it from them, to know and act as if we all are one, that the Universe is one and we all are connected through the superconscious, that there is abundance for everyone so we should cheer for everyone, that if we wish or pray for others, it will be given to us as well. That sense of oneness found in kids can be lighted in us as well.

            Do kids need reason to laugh? No. My nieces laugh at lamest of my jokes. They find everything hilarious. Yes, they can feel good for no reason, smile or laugh for no reason. And they laugh open-heartedly. FEEL GOOD. The words I just highlighted in capitals is the MOST important lesson you can learn from kids and the MOST important step you must be at for the Law to work in your favor. Either you feel good because you are grateful for the things you have right now or else find another reason to feel good. But you must anyhow try and feel good, no matter what. The Universe always reciprocates your feelings while it is working on manifesting your dreams. And your emotions play the MOST important signals for the Universe. So, send out only the best of emotions out and be ready to get the best.

Yes, only if we take them seriously, children can teach us how and why not to take life so seriously. And, how life and the laws of Universe will always be in our favor if we let our inner child keep having fun.

Trying a concise tribute to Jane Austen, her work and adaptations (if that’s even possible)
