When stray animals and human beings sleep in the same room in public space, it says a story in itself. Here are two pictures I captured on an early morning at Itarsi Railway Station. Poverty is widespread everywhere in India and sometimes, it just becomes a little too much.
A cycle happens to be #Samajwadi party’s symbol and the picture represents something else!!
Happiness can be very tricky at times if you are not clear with what you expect from life. One of my friends says this all the time, “You can be surrounded by a lot of problems and not feel good. Alternatively, you can simply wake up each morning and thank God for another beautiful day in life and try to make the best of it.” Or as another friend says it, “Happiness is a way of life.” This is my new year resolution as well – be happy, and do things that make me happy.
After being stuck in traffic, I had finally reached Nagarcoil having spent 1 hr 45 mins for a 20 kms distance! Its then that I came across this tea vendor at the bus stop. He seemed more than happy to see me given that there aren’t many Sikh people around in this area or for that matter state.
An infectious smile was accompanied with a very refreshing tea. The tea device that you see here is something I saw in Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the areas that I travelled. A unique travel experience indeed!
I haven’t come across this blunt a way to promote communism or protect public sector company in any other part of India. Kerala is one of the states that has deep roots in communism.
Its the season when nature teaches us to let go of the past and get ready to welcome the new …
Its the season to forgo the baggage that we tend to carry with us all the time …
The breeze is no more chill, the sun is getting bright …
Its the season when change is in the air …
I am alive …. still..
the bright sun in the blue sky
the shining clouds
the mystic air
the rhythmic instrumental music
I am alive to see this …
I am at peace for a moment
for the next moment is going to take me back to troubles
for the next moment is carrying unbearable p___
for the solitude is _____ me
for I am alone in this chaotic and crowded world
as my dear friend shared this quote the other day:
“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.”
