Wilted…

Back to Source…

A trip at the garden on my occasional morning walk brought this lone flower wilting away as if waiting for the day it gets one with the source it once arose from….!!

Eventually it is all about getting in touch with your basics,your roots and the source you came from…but all this would make sense once you have achieved the true potential,true heights of why you’ve been raised.

It’s interesting to become philosophical once in a while…๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Maa Saraswati

Maa Saraswati

Yaa Kundendu tushaara haara-dhavalaa, Yaa shubhra-vastra’avritaa

Yaa veena-vara-danda-manditakara, Yaa shweta padma’asana

Yaa brahma’achyuta shankara prabhritibhir Devai-sadaa Vanditaa

Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavatee Nihshesha jaadya’apahaa.

Shuklaam Brahmavichaara Saara paramaam Aadhyaam Jagadvyapinim,

Veena Pustaka Dhaarineem Abhayadaam Jaadya’andhakaara’apahaam

Haste Sphaatika Maalikam Vidadhateem Padmasane Sansthitaam

Vande taam Parmeshwareem Bhagavateem Buddhipradaam Shardam.

A Wish a Day

I generally relate birthdays to yummy birthday cakes and birthday cakes to birthday candles and candles to birthday wishes….yeah long connection ๐Ÿ˜‰

But what if we make one wish every day and work towards making it true…something as simple as making someone smile just for today…

I wish .....

I wish …..

A wish a day and see how simple happiness can be ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Submission

Going through my archives, I came across this shot of my dearest friend Kavya taken during her Mancha pravesh….

Submission ...to the Divine

Submission to the Divine

The last stance of “Moksha” as a finale to the dance recital and how elegantly it summarizes the whole concept of Submission.

Totally love it !!!

Prosperity

In India, Rice has always been considered as a symbol of prosperity since ages… the primary reason being that India wasย  & is still traditionally a farmer’s country.

Hence when we worship Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth,prosperity and success; a cup of rice is always decorated besides the idol to venerate the goddess and pray that wealth and prosperity always keeps flowing in the house. Decided to focus of that symbol for this year….

Symbol of Prosperity

In Bengal, a lot of families worship Maa Lakshmi on Kojagari night rather than Diwali night.

Alpona, Luchi, Naaru are few of the delicacies that are prepared for the festivities. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

 

 

Another Sun sets ….

Felt as if I was walking down the beach after ages….the soft sand beneath, the chaos of kids and hawkers all around and the serene sun setting down behind the calm waters. Missed sunsets big time ๐Ÿ™‚
