The Riot of Colours..... is Life!

"Life is a celebration of passionate colors. " This statement of Leialoha Cator makes so much of sense in everyone's life.
Some days are red (when you are high), some are green (when you are productive and fruitful), some are pink (when you are young at heart), while others are blue (when you are down). Some days are orange (peaceful and make you satisfied) and some are yellow ( bright and gay)..!

There are even a few days in your life that are real drak grey and black (when you are damn sad and frustrated) but you also find some days to be white (everyday is white, start it fresh with a new brush to paint the "canvas")..!

While surfing some photography pages that inspire me a lot to click more and more, better and better every time I press the click button of my camera for my face-book page, I noticed a truthful line ( guess I saw that in Lakshmi Prabhala Photography) and that inspired me a lot and lots so much that I have even written those and pinned at my workspace too..!

The golden words are ~

And now that I have spent more than a quarter of my life, I have realized that "life" what-so-ever situation you are in, is always and always colorful..!
All of a sudden I find myself content..!blink blink :P

An Encounter with Pitta

Indian Pitta (Pitta brachyura)
 Last weekend was fun when Ruta called Chaitra and told that she has spotted Indian Pitta inside their campus. What next, we both packed up our bag with Chai's binocs and  my camera! Eager to catch this bird live, we drove to RRI. But to our surprise, Saturday went in vain and we couldn't spot this bird (don't ask the reason, I guess it should have been obvious by now from the picture). 
As small as a baby's palm or slightly bigger in size (may be the palm of a 6 years kid), Indian Pitta is a lazy bird. Resting on the forest floor amongst the rusty colored dry leaves, Pitta shows an amazing degree of camouflage (even though it has such terrific bright colours), and that's the reason we missed out the beauty on Saturday (apparently I took a lots of pictures and saw many birds and at end of the day had forgotten about our pitta mission even!). 
However, Sunday was a favorable day for all three of us. Again Chaitra's phone rang and from other side was Ruta saying to hurry up to institute as she had again spotted Pitta. We reached (literally dropping all my household cores) and what else..There was only 4 of us- Me, Chai, Ruta and Pitta... The only sounds were- either click-click sounds of my camera, or the rustling sounds of the dry leaves due to our slow walks while chasing this damn gawdy critter, or the hopping sound of Pitta trying to hide and feed on vermis.
Must agree a truly memorable feel, I had!
Peacefully resting in the tiny scruby forested patch inside RRI, we could not only enjoy the bird's sight but also studied its typical way of feeding, its laziness and degree of smartness too..! 
Thanks Ruta for spotting the beauty and calling us on time.
Sunday was a really memorable day for me..!

Buddha says....

 Of lately, I have been reading a lots of quotations and poetry stuffs. I find this one from Buddha' saying simple yet very concrete, less words yet powerful worded, pure yet very true..!
There is no fire like passion
No crime like hatred,
No sorrow like separation,
No sickness like hunger,
And no joy like the joy of freedom.

~ Buddha

Let's brighten our own path first

"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own."

~ Ben Sweetland

Shot @ Nandi Hills, this picture was on the trip to Gauri Bidnoor, sometime in mid-July last year. I must agree that I loved the place and the feel of the moist evergreen to semi evergreen forest made me feel go gaga...! Of course not to forget the trek I and Chaitra had. That was a day amongst all days. :P

A woman should be an illusion

To all women over the world, who are a mystery and riddle for me and many...!

I remember when I was in class 9th. Those famous lines were from 'the Unexpected' in my English literature book where Mrs. Parker says, "Where women are concerned, they are always Unexpected!"

While goggling on internet, I came across these lines:

"A woman should be an illusion."

~Ian Fleming

So very true.I dedicate this click of mine to the dark side of a woman.

About the snap: This a ceramic ash-tray, taken at CKP, Bangalore during Kala Madhyam 2010.

Current Mood: Unexpected of course (dedicated to the unexpected part of Me).
