Waging a War

Every morning when i leave for office around nineish it looks like i am a part of a raging war.Hundreds of vehicles are moving in various direction.....sometimes they move like the tankers slowly but alert enough to attack when needed......And sometimes they fly on the road like fighter planes.... they just zoom ahead .....with iron deterimantion to show off... to amttract attention and sometimes to disturb the peace of mind.

If you happen to be too close to any vehicle the vehicle owners do attack you with blaring honking which will kill you with annoyance. To take revenge they will keep honking behind your vehicle unless you go out of sight.....

Every morning i feel i have the huge responsibilty of protecting myself and my bike form the irresponsible and absolute reckless riders...... The way they drive can easily give some weak hearted person a heart attack.....

I never understand whats the hurry dude...... if you want to rush and go somewhere , so do we......

but who cares..... isnt it?

Well this is my state of mind in the morning....
By the time moon rises and sun sets.. the wonderful morning breeze is taken over by the hellish pollution.... it is so foggy that you can hardly see the next vehicle.... the body gets aware of the pollution around and adjust itself to the situation ......
When i reach home....... my face is painted in grey with the dust and pollution......... the endless thoughts drives me little cranky.....
when will these things decrease...?
when will we breathe in pure air..... when will we ride in peace.... oh lord.....when....
I pray that very soon we ride on horse backs and enjoy the bullock cart rides...... how long can these roads acomodate the innumerable cars... and rickshaws and PMT buses and trucks, bikes, scooters ... and cycles .....gosh.......

i think i'll tell you tomorrow.

Zip Zap Vroom!
The thoughts are speeding zoom!
They are standing in Que,Ready to jump on you.
Each fights with another,seeking for undivided attention.
Listen to me one thought stomps and says.
While other pinches you to contemplate.

All These are pawns,The king is waiting back;
When all the pawns over do.
The majesty will take charge;
And shake your system,only to tell you
'Quieten your mind,Train your thoughts'
Or else your brain will remain Just a Grey matter stock.

Be aware and fight the pessimist ones,
Which creates doubts and paralyzes you with fear.
Encourage and multiply positive thoughts
Which will guide you, Free you from fear and give you faith.

Life is a game,
Thoughts are pawns
Making right moves by entertaining right thoughts
Will give you gifts of lovely lively sorts

Power Of Visuals

Imagination is such a wonderful mechanism of our mind. Imagination is made up of visuals, visuals are made up of words that we have saved in our system for years. When i say water, your mind creates an image of water in your head.You will see the most recent visual of water.

When i say bird an image of crow, or sparrow or whatever bird you are fond of or whatever you have imagined as a bird for years will swim up in your memory.

Visuals have a great impact on the heart and mind of human being. We live in an era where we our bombarded with endless visuals; be it the whats app, facebook, on the hoardings , on TV screens, in the newspapers, magazines, internet and all around us there
are some visual that communicates to us.

Photography is a very integral part of visuals. A photograph has the power to generate emotion and tell a story if it is composed in the right way. Photography is an art which can be developed, with Consistent Self motivated Efforts. Like every art form , even photography requires tremendous patience and discipline. ""I click what I see", this is what MOST people do, I see something, I like it and I just click a picture of it. Sometimes it turns out to be fantastic, sometimes it is not all that great but anyways it doesn't matter because I have something to show right!

Well, right! but if I have the tool that is a "camera" then why not focus on creating wonderful pictures?

I Am going to do just that.To all the photography enthusiasts, I am going to share with you my experiences in the journey of photography and life. You are welcome to share yours and together lets create some visually beautiful, impactful,appealing pictures. Click Click
