“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at the airport. Gereral opinion makes out theat we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I dont see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often its not particularly dignified or newsworthy but its always there. Fathers and Sons, Mothers and Daughters, Husbands and Wives, Boyfriends, Girlfriends, Oldfriends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, none of the phone calls from people on board were messages of hate or revenge, they were all messages of love. If you look for it, Ive got a sneaky feeling you will find that LOVE ACTUALLY IS ALL AROUND.”

leaves left on the trees..
i stare at the clear sky...
i see the branches overpowering..
a web it creates.
Soon these too will be gone..
Today one friend said..
Don't be sad.... they will come again..
What i felt was not sadness..
it was something else..
fear? agony ? sorrow?
just don't know what...

the streets here are so different..
there is no aroma.. there is no smell..
there are no people walking around..
there is no noise..
is this change in environment good?
Missing these small joys...
of going on the streets and starting a conversation with anyone..
stopping by anywhere and experiencing life..

Day by day the trees get bare..
...all i can do is sigh and stare...
More than half the leaves are gone..
it seems that mother nature has won..
Wish i could stop the winds..
Wish i could stop the rains..
The sadness that starts that is so unkind..
The agony, lost joy and the pains..
The mercury constantly fails to rise..
wearing an overcoat would be just wise..
The winds brutally hit my face...
i realize the triviality of the human race...
The sun is out and is bright...
i see the spotless sky...
wish there was heat as much there is light..
and i could, just as the birds fly....
Soon all will be black and white...
The days short.. and longer night..
Everyday will be a test for survival..
with the hope of a new revival..
The hope keeps me going..
this will end soon.... spring is coming..
Did you just notice the fall ending?
I thought winter was just starting!

When I was deciding on what to do for a living, some years back, my father said that "Son, do whatever you want to do. But be "good" in it! "
Good design is a lot about practice.. being able to think in concrete concepts and supporting your design with an design argument.

Jo hua, achha hua.
Jo ho rahahai, achha ho raha hai.
Jo hoga, voh bhi achha hoga.
Tumhara kya gaya ki tum rote ho?
Tum kya laaye the jo tumne kho diya?
Tumne kya paida kiya tha jo nasht ho gaya?
Jo liya, yahin se liya.
Jo diya, yahin par diya.
Jo aaj tumhara hai, kal kisi aur ka tha, aur parso kisi aur ka ho jaayega.
Parivartan sansaar ka niyam hai.
Essence of the Bhagavad Gita.

Was sitting on a street at Kirkwood,
was waiting for the bus.
There comes this chick siping budweiser,
offers it to me (and my friend).
Did she think of us as homeless?
Its so difficult to deal with the problem of a homeless in a different country, especially having been with many homeless kids in India.

Homelessness is the condition and societal category of people who lack fixed housing, usually because they cannot afford a regular, safe, and adequate shelter. The term "homelessness" may also include people whose primary nighttime residence is in a homeless shelter, in an institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized, or in a public or private place not designed for use as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings. A small number of people choose to be homeless. An estimated 100 million people worldwide are homeless.
Been working on a project for the homeless as a part of the curriculum.
The emotional content involved with the project is really strong.

Have you ever felt a desire burn you from within?
The wanting to do a certain thing before its too late..
Want to shoot the fall before its too late.
Everyday I have been watching a particular tree since the past few days...
and wonder if tomorrow will be the right time to shoot it..
Perhaps waiting for it to turn colors completely.

Don't you miss the things you loved doing some time?
What is stopping you from doing it today ?
Don't you remember being happy in what you did?
What is making you sad today ?
Why let the circumstances come in your way of happiness?
Why not let it just take care of the sadness?
Remembering the portrait days.
will be back so shooting portraits soon.

Everyday you met someone new...
Some fail to do so...
Some have an everlasting impression on the heart...
Some are just worthy of a glance..
Some not even that.
It does not matter where u go together..
Or what you spoke about..
What really mattered was
if both were happy together,
if both enjoyed their time together.

I stood there...
Till the end of time..
Till the stars did not shine..
I felt each water droplet touch me..
i felt it just could not be ...
The force touching my soul..
the waters creeping through the hole..
I stood there...
wishing for you to be back..
wondering what it was that i lack..

Every corner of the heart cries for you..
Every moment I am reminded of you..
Whenever I am in solitude..
and in awe of the moment of truth..
I feel for you..
Was i too fortunate to land up here..
Was i selfish to leave you and not be near..
I will be back soon my dear...
I will be back , so do not fear..
I will be back.
