Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known


A little girl I saw in Lal Bagh, Bangalore. Her parents were probably busy in browsing the shops around while she was standing like this since long.  I felt the joy behind her elevated thoughts while taking this picture. For a moment, it occurred to me as if the world was deeply interfused into her sublime mind and she was well aware of the fact that, somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known!

PS: It is also an example of backlight subject photography using a medium telephoto lens, where light is coming from behind or sideways of the subject. I was sitting very far and my presence was unknown to her. This is one advantage of using a medium telephoto lens (85mm in this case), one can sit in a corner and just gaze around the world and its people, while still remain incognito!

Deep into thoughts


Portrait of a woman, a fruit seller as you can see, sitting next to her cart, roadside
Deep into thoughts she was disconnected against momentary lapse of reality around her
Passing by the same roadside I took this picture
And she remained sitting - calm and gently - deep into thoughts
Disconnected against momentary lapse of reality 
And I moved on...

A Thoughtful Mind!

When we think of 'Mind', 
we can see all the colors that mind possesses. 
It is the real beauty of mind.
The colorful mind as I call it.





When it comes to 'Thoughts',
there are good thoughts & bad thoughts.
And I say that black has it all.
And the White too.
Their beauty is absolute. 





And I say 'Life' is the combination,
a perfect blend of colorful 'Mind' with monochromatic 'Thoughts'
that brings in the perfect harmony!

Random Thoughts about Life: Bend you Genius

Random Thoughts about Life:
God to Man- "You work with this tiny little screw and prove that you are genius!! I made it drop on floor full of grit to thwart your ego!"

(While I was working with some hardware and I accidentally dropped a tiny screw which took me about half an hour to find it. It made me bend down at my knees literally!)

Conversations: My Identity ?




 I saw a butterfly today...
 And realized how colorful those wings were...
 It was flying freely over those tiny yellow flowers...

 I wanted to fly too...
 To enjoy the beauty of nature...
 Flying with those colorful wings...
 Across those tiny yellow flowers...

 I became butterfly for a moment...
 Through my eyes realized that the world was huge...
 Saw those big yellow flowers...
 But those wings...
 Those colorful wings were not visible...
 Those colorful wings which gave me my identity...
 I couldn't see...

 Got this fact...
 Wings I possess, I cannot see...
 But others can admire...
 Which sometime becomes my identity...
 But not all can fly, I can...
 Is the reality that identifies me...

 I shouted at the nature...

 Our Identity is perception of Self ? ...
 Or what others perceive becomes our Identity ? ...

 Got this reply...

 What am I ? ...

 A river...
 Gives water...
 Gives sounds...
 Gives flow...
 Gives life...

 They perceive me as what they get from me...
 They see me as a river...

 Who am I ? ...

 I am a sea inside me...
 I have waves of thoughts...
 I have shore of imagination...
 I have depths of beliefs...
 I have shells of curiosity...
 I have calmness of love...
 I have hugeness of doubts...
 I have storms of confusion...
 I have questions inside me...
 I have answers inside me...

 This perception of self is my identity for me...

 I am a river for others...
 I am a sea inside me...

Random thoughts about Life




Life is a Lock, You are the Key. Knowing this is not a secret but the fact that moving the key in right direction can open this lock.

Random thoughts about Life

Does the thought you are now thinking take you where you want to go?

If not, what thought would?

Random Thoughts about Life





Zindagi ek khayal hai?
Yaan khayal ki talaash hai?


Life is a thought?
Or a search for a thought?
