Take the refuge of Buddha..!

"बुद्धं शरणं गच्छामि।
धर्मं शरणं गच्छामि।
संघं शरणं गच्छामि।"

Buddhaṃ śaraṇaṃ gacchāmi,
( I take refuge in the Buddha.)
Dharmaṃ śaraṇaṃ gacchāmi,
( I take refuge in the Dharma.)
Saṃghaṃ śaraṇaṃ gacchāmi.
( I take refuge in the Sangha. )

Meet My Mr. Pi

My dear Mr. Pi..
Wished me in the morning "Hello- Hi"
Slowly whispered into my ears
The saga of many years..

"Since you were a teen-aged girl,
I have been there with you...
Watched your small curls
Through the table-lamp's light..

Now you are a lady..
I am still there with you...
And when you will be very old..
I will still remain on your table top..
But when you die..
Make sure that...
I will lie next to you
And say all 'The final Good-Bye'..!"

Happy Deepavali

It was great fun at RMV hostel as the evening set in...

Diyas, Candles, some of my creativity in-house, Gifts from my bitter half ;),
Sweets, Yummy delicacies cooked by friends and lots of Crackers- many of which were really crazy and wild ones, entering the neighbours courtyard, chasing Mr. Anjaan, dashing the hostel room in 2nd floor and many many more stories..
Wishes from friends and family..
waah... a perfect end to this year's diwali..!!

I was playing with my camera as usual and screaming everytime some rocket was launched by the crazy physicsts..!
What a memorable time we all had..!

blink blink....

I wish all my friends and blog-visitors a happy, prosperous, safe and eco-friendly deepavali festival...! May the light conquer all the obstacles in each one of your life and bring in happiness, peace and success.. all health and wealth..!

I dedicate to....

I dedicate these flowers for:

One for Mankind and Humanity
One for the victims of that division between "We" and "They"
One for that long awaited decision, which should have been made some 6 six decades back!
And one for peace to persist till mankind is existing on the Earth.

Creativity Never Dies...

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.”

- George Bernard Shaw

I will strongly agree with Theodore Levitt's words- “Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.”

I took photography seriously in Jan'07 when my mom gifted my the first digital camera, a Cannon S3 IS (Proud to be a Canonite ;)). I have been playing with it now and then, very often since then. It feels proud to be possessor of this cam-model (which is now almost outdated, since there have been new Canon cam-models). I must agree that in the midst of the ride on life's roller coaster, I don't do justice to my creativity. Work, at times in office sucks, home and household works pisses me and at times my illness make me irky. People around me eat my soft matter of cranium almost all time,- Boss at office is a scary-ghost on some days while better half gets transformed to bitter half on other days. But what has been always given a smile to my flowery face (well I love self-praise) are the snaps I get to see, after I press that steel button in the right corner of my three-years old flashing machine.

Now I have found out my secret power and desire and I am somewhere happy from inside. I have realized that creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
In Oscar Wilde's word "The imagination imitates. It is the critical spirit that creates". I guess my critical spirit is too powerful to make my forget my desires, my passion, my creativity...!

Experiments with Camera Session2

My animal ear rings have been always a matter of discussion and gossip amongst my friends and colleagues. That night I took the swan ear-studs off my ear and seeing the camera lying on the bed, the basic instinct of photographer arose and the results were something enormously satisfying..

Good old days are back

After a long time, fighting with all the odds of my life and adjusting with those evenly uneven pitches of life's curvy road, I have realized one big truth-"United we stand, divided we fall."

But what about united we sit.....!! ha..ha..!!

Once again life seems beautiful and I feel in top of the world.

Life is a Game....!!

"Jindagi hai ek jung..!!Maro ya Maaro...!!"

Life is battle, Do or die...! Somebody had said so and once i read it somewhere. Now I am getting older, don't even bother to remember where and when I read that line.

Today life is the same. We still have to drink eat and struggle to survive. But the definition of this struggle has got modifications. Its now reformed into more harsh and real truth with the change of eras. Today's the slogan is "Life is a game, play safe and cleverly... if and only if you want to win it...!!"

I had been to this folk mela (trade fair) during last winter and was amazed to see these typical bangles ...again and again...!! since last 2 years I see them...!! people do buy them.. i guess if it has become a fashion..!! creativity at heights... a rounded plastic and colored threads (monotone and multitones both) twining the plastic and finally what we get is these colorful dangling bangles...!! I too got one for me... Chai gifted me...!! It 's a multicolored bangle...

and when I think of that love...I get reminded of the lines which come to my mind...!!

Bangles.... Oh Bangles..

We are the Bangles...
Not just triangles..

Shaped in round..
Making that unique sound...!!
Love to be in hand...
form the bride's colorful band..!!

Oh! we are not just bangles...
We make the relations tangle...
Now we dangle
And here we jingle....

Oh yea...we are the bangles...!!
