Duality

Black and White

Many a times I do think that what would it be if life was just in binary.
Only yes or no.
Only 0 or 1.
Only black or white.
Only good or bad.

But then, I am sure it would be too abnormal then.

..and it rained.

But It Rained

It was so hot since the past days.
...and yes.. it did rain finally today.
The feeling was blissful.

I love the rains. It rejuvinates the tired soul.

When it starts, all of a sudden, you will want to do n number of things.
It gives something to look forward to.
You start planning what you would do when the rains stop.

I Miss Kerela

House Boat

Don't know why .. suddenly today I missed the beauty of Kerela.
I guess it was due to the image from a friend that I saw.

Laugh out Loud

With Wells

Live your life in a way that when you are gone,
the moment someone remembers about you..
all they can remember is a laughing face...

:)
Keep Laughing and Smiling!

Towards Light

Towards Light

...is what one should always keep trying to achieve.
darkness is always temporary and there is light at the end always.

The Skyline of Chicago is so impressive that I just like to see it again and again.
I could go on shooting it time and time again!

Sail away...

Sail Away

This is one of my favorite quotes.
"May you sail of the ocean of opportunities and harbor at the port of success."

I had this quarrel with my roommate and he was being very mean to me. Reminding me of all small small things and things were like a year old and nagging for a dollar! I was shocked at his behavior. But then I just kept my cool. He asked me later whether I was mad at him. I said No. Just because he is like that, I cannot be like him.
I just wished him luck, as he just got his Visa approved.

Its funny how one forgets the good times one spends with people, and the comfort one gets when one is in trouble and there is this person there for you to motivate you.
However, all they remember are the moments when they had quarrels and in such times only they come out of them.

I guess there is some basic flaw in the human nature. But then... exceptions are always there.

Fly Away

Fly Away

What if we could fly too?
Just like that.

Wouldn't we all fly away to glory... a life without hardships? And then fly away again from there once something is not working there.

But frankly speaking .. whats a life where there are no hardships.. wouldn't it be tooooo boring?

A friend .. named Solitude..

In Solitude

In solitude I remain
With absolutely nothing to gain
Perhaps in time I will be strong
You see! Solitude is not my favourite song

A solitary place
Is not where I belong
Read my lips and trace the lines on my face
You see! Solitude is not my favourite song

But social isolation
Combined with social manipulation
Places me once again in solitude
You see! Solitude is not my preferred attitude

This isn’t a journey of spiritual enlightenment
As some people might say to my resentment
But in great loneliness of this magnitude
I must find some self awareness in solitude

I must find strength and pretend
That everyone around me is my friend
To put this state of scale of elevation to an end
I must pretend, I must pretend
That even Solitude is my friend

Balance

Balance

Life is all about the balance between the things you like doing and the things you are forced to doing.
A balance between the heart and the mind. The heart saying one thing .. and the mind the other thing....
Between the left and the right..

Very often there is a misbalance. And thats when all the trouble happens!

Escape

Escape

Would life be different if we all had access to the easy escape route?
Would life be less challenging?
Would it become too predictable?
Would you not feel that come what may, you can just escape with the flip of a wing...

Doing what u like..

At the Lake Michigan

There are some people who do what they like doing without worrying about the rest of the world. Look into the pic closely you will find it.

I have also wanted to do things I love doing. So there is no public swimming pool nearby and I love to swim. So I went to swim in the lake Michigan. And on a day when its warm enough, there is no better feeling than that!

Slow Down...

To New York

Sometimes life requires to you to take things slowly ... and just let the tides take you where it wants to.

Exit

Exit

Many a times we see a door/path labeled exit and that is actually a way to lead out of current mess and perhaps lead to better opportunities. But there is something that stops us.
One fails to understand why?

Destination

Next Destination

Life is a journey.. the destination is unknown.
What is known is the moment in which one is traveling.

Make the journey memorable by enjoying each and every day, every moment.
