Time do change


 

Hi Everyone,

2017-02-26-00-44-59

This is a view from my window.  I could have taken a picture and posted it but wanted to give my fingers a little artistic exercise.   Hope it turned out good though miles away from the details of original scenery ☺.

It’s just a small passage but seems different to me with every changing season.  Winters are blank with snow laden branches and stairs whereas autumn is grey with leaves leaving their abode and taking shelter on ground.  Spring and summers – sun adds to the colour of the sky as well as kisses each and every nook and corner of this petty corner facing my window thus giving it a picturesque beauty.  To put it simply there’s an entire palate of colours – white, grey,  black, lush green, golden-yellow, soothing orange, lively blue and so on.  Changing colours of this petty passage gave me an important message of life – Time do change.

Just because leaves were shed from branches, a tree doesn’t uproot itself from the ground.   It  waits patiently for the kiss of sun rays that is due in spring.  And when that happens the tree knows that its time has changed.  Similarly few people trend that passage during winters but summers witness a constant flow of people especially parents accompanying their kids taking that passage.  It simply means time has changed.

Time changes – it is true for everyone.   We may be encountering lonely and rough phases and engulfed with sorrows but hope and patience would see us through.   On the other hand when in happiness one should never forget to keep allowances for bad time which is as unexpected as a guest.

I cannot draw the curtains forever because the sky outside my window is grey and breeds gloom in me.  Time would come soon when I would let the windows wide open to let in the whip of fresh air.

There’s a beautiful line from a pathetic movie 😁 that everyone must keep in mind:

Good thing about a bad time is that it ends;  Bad thing about a good time is that it ends too.

I strongly believe that no smile is permanent and no frown is forever.  But these things will ensure everlasting peace of mind :

  • Hope in God
  • Patience
  • Humble tone
  • Love fellow being.

Fade Away


Hi Everyone,

This is my trial with crayons.  I was not sure if I should bring it forth or not.  After a lot of self questioning I thought opinions do matter especially when you are trying something new.  Take a look and do let me know your honest opinion or rather how you felt.

As we have just entered into new year one more year has been added to history data.  And as we march further  many moments/ memories  would gradually fade away till completely lost in the vast ocean of time.  This is how I perceive it:

2017-01-02-01-03-19

Don’t let your soul be sorrow stricken because of events that are a matter of past now.  Everything will “Fade Away”.

Would you like to dance with me?

Hi Everyone ,

My question is to you only, would you like to dance with me?  Since year is drawing close to an end and many parties round the corner are you prepared to don your dancing shoes?

What did you say?  You don’t  know how to dance.  So what, I am not a professional  either and we shall not dance to impress but to express.  Isn’t it right approach?   So let your hair down and dance, dance like there’s no tomorrow ,  dance like no one is watching you.  And feel the beat, let your feet move to the tune of your favourite number, doesn’t really matter even if you have two left feet.  Every  movement  with happiness adds grace to your moves, period!   And if you still feel awkward just close your eyes, put on your headsets, turn on your favourite song and let your imagination hit the dance floor.  This is what I  do when I  can’t dance physically and I bet I am a dancing diva there who can share the stage with likes of Michael Jackson (only name that comes to one’s mind on the mere mention of word dance).  Isn’t it ecstasy of a kind.

Dance definitely works as a stress reliving therapy.  If you don’t believe me give it a try once behind closed doors and let me know your experience.   And I am sure you would agree with me then.

Ok, let’s put the therapy aside.  Dance is not only a stress reliever but a great exercise to burn calories the fun way.  If you are more “into logic” person then also dance is for you.

So going by any account of benefit that  dancing carries it’s a must try for every soul because “ABCD” – Anybody Can Dance.

So, would you like to dance with me?

Down the memory lane, Part 1-Paris Trip


Hi Everyone,

It is said that Paris is the city of romance and fashion capital of the world.  I agree to that.  It’s been seven years when I first visited this city  just a month before my first wedding anniversary as we were supposed to celebrate our first anniversary with family in India.  I was very excited (who won’t be) after all it was my first visit to the French capital which I have been seeing only on television and first time comes only once in life.  We boarded Thalys, the superfast train plying between Brussels and Paris and duration of the journey was about 1 hour 15 minutes.  After reaching there and checking in our hotel room we chalked out plan for our three days.  Prepared a bucket list, which place needs to be visited first and so on.  We decided to take metro for reaching various destinations in the city.  Talking about the metro, the very look of the stations and the metro trains looked very old which meant they were running since ages. But we had a comfortable ride, in fact taking metro is a best option.  With a guide (book) in hand we were all set to paint the city red
