Ganpati Bappa Morya..!!!

There are various myths, stories and tales about our beloved Elephant-head and each one of them is a legend in itself. Growing up in the western part of the country, this particular festival has been of huge significance in my life and there are in-numerous fond memories entwined with Bappa and his birthday 🙂

SWAMI VIVEKANAND

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

This is first picture that came to my mind coz of the word “swag” (a very confident attitude or manner). Infact when I read this quote, I realized that this masterful personality of modern India has already spoken about a philosophy which is more relevant in today’s times than it was then.

P.S: Clicked this picture at the Gateway of India last week

Monday Blues …. literally..!!

Aparajita

Again from the archives…. This particular flower is called “Aparajita/Shankhpushp” (Butterfly pea) and is a certain favourite of my mother. It is believed to be used as an offering to Lord Shiva and the name Shankhpushp is self-explanatory (Shankh=Conch , Pushp=Flower…. Shaped like a Conch). The one that I have posted is a hybrid of the actual flower and hence you’ll see the petals are more curled.

Footprints in the Sand….

Footprints

Let’s walk together…!!

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”

– Mary Stevenson (1939)

Tu Chal Main Aaayiiiiii……

Tu chal Main Aayi

Saat phera…!!

Shot at one of my best friend’s wedding, it was one of the most happening marriages literally…So much action both on-stage and off it simultaneously!! Infact, one of the most loving couples I’ve met till date and two personalities who are poles apart and yet share so much love and understanding.

No I’m not going to start talking about Marriage per se….its just that this particular pic reminded me of an extremely popular song from a cult movie of our generation – Tu Chal Main Aayi from “Maine Pyaar Kiya”
