Come forth into the light of things. Let nature be your teacher


This morning...was a new beginning :)...I was all set for a good and healthy start of my day :) ....I went for a long drive...Gosh!!! I have to say...its scarrrrrrrry.........I was thinking what possible remedies could be there so that...one can make the traffic system like in Canada ;) but guess what..my inner voice were like those two who are debating with eachother...with the pros n cons :D ..when one looks for remedies..the other says of population...then suddenly I saw ..a huge bus, truck and scooters...and cars and cycles...n all possible vehicle ..in the midst of this...pedestrians crossing the roads...my lord how people are not worried for their lives...!!!! I really felt that Pedestrians should be given there right of way first....!!! I can just keep on writing on this Pune Traffic...a chilled air flows through in my heart..! Like Madame Curie said.."Nothing in life is to be feared, only understood".
But then I relaxed my mind by doing some photography...! I caught this couple in pink ;) and grabbed my camera..! When I looked at it..I really felt these are like couples living on that branch where they have green leaves which provides food and the thorns...too showing the reality of life..! Like the two sides of a coin. What a big lesson we all can learn just from our own surroundings...nature..and still we humans - the most intelligent animal on the planet..try to run away from problems and the facts. "Life is like a taxi. The meter just keeps a-ticking whether you are getting somewhere or just standing still".
Wow..that quotes for both todays traffic and reality of life ;).

Well...these flowers also remind me of my Botony practicals..where I used to spend hours peeling the flower and trying to find a stigma & ovary :) how things have a different look as we grow ..! This picture teaches me a lot of reality in life and I find so much of peace in mind :)...that no one is different....its the individual ..how they react to that situation. I am content!!!!
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it :-)

I've Been quite lathargic lately...

But your blog and words sure makes one feel great.... it does to me..

To look around and realise that it was always there, but you never noticed,
Nature... Beauty... what poets have expressed through their words.

Your words are always poetic, its a real gift to see, enjoy and express all at the same time and that too with such finesse.

You always wrote well, but when I read a few of your blogs together today I see that your words are growing, maturing and refining with each posting to express your thoughts which I know has the depth to make words find new meanings....

Keep writing... and we will keep reading
