Perception

Have realised in the last few months that how often we take things on face value and make our Perceptions based on that. When I was going through my photo archives today, came across this very recent shot I took on one of my biz trips.

Where are you looking?

Where are you looking?

All that is visible are the silent raindrops on the window pane but what lies beyond it is a deep blue sea which is roaring and full of giant waves.

But none of that can be made out from the shot….isn’t the same applicable for Life too?

Thanks to the decisions I made, I have now learnt to look beyond and seek the actual reality than take things merely on face value…..!!

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.

Reborn

After being totally razed down by some miscreant (rat/bird), I had lost all hope that my Tulsi is going to live again……

but it was real surprise when my lovely green baby spread its leaves again…it was like being reborn….!!

How it feels to be alive again....

How it feels to be alive again….

Felt that tingling experience of being Reborn again…..and it felt very liberating πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚
