I took this picture, early morning from across the Tungabhadra river. The air was cold and I could still hear the crickets and the frogs from along the water edge.
The water was cold all around, and I couldn’t help but wonder what a million years of creation would have been like !
Shadows of the famed civilization of the Vijaynagara Empire that once stood on the banks of this famous river could still be seen in the fading morning light, and I wish it would come back all over again….
Our first duty is not to hate ourselves, because to advance we must have faith in ourselves first and then in God. Those who have no faith in themselves can never have faith in God.
I would like to reflect on a few things that would probably make me understand more about my self and even more about the world around me. The world was made a beautiful place, but civilization destroyed it and made it what it is today. As I type these few lines , hundreds are losing their innocent lives to atrocities of arson, robbery,theft,rape. Every incident is associated with jealousy, gain,greed etc. It’s funny for the sheer fact that all our gains on earth would remain very much here on earth. We go empty handed, in very much the same way as when we got here.
We amass all that we can, and as fast as we can , in the hope that we come out as the winner, but we just need to pause for a moment , because we aren’t winning any marathon in life, we are just burning our existence away in the vain hope that we are achieving for tomorrow, when actually we are not….
Don’t worry about what people say behind your back.They’re the ones who find fault in your life instead of fixing their own…
You may think that you don’t lead that much of a beautiful life, but you are wrong. Those nights when you’ve stayed up just smiling about something or someone that made your day, embrace it. I can guarantee it will always be the little things that make your life special and remarkable, not the materialistic ones. So with this said, I challenge you to get lost in it, all of it, this is the only way you can live the most fulfilling life possible. Lastly, it is important to remind the ones you care for and love how happy you are that they get to share the beauty in the world with you, because who knows they could be gone tomorrow.
A little emotion of expression is what turns the world around, a spell cast to part the oceans and divert the waters of a waterfall in a reverse direction. A small action to add a spark to a life. A gesture that could make a day. A value that sets a path of inculcation. A smile that can drive away the thoughts of a negative day and a touch that would give one the much needed warmth which says, I am here for you.
When all seems dark and clouds of rain are all that remain, when the light of time would never touch the heart, when all that’s left is an empty day , you should count on friendship to come your way.
Blowing past the summers faded away like the hours of a day, leaving just a trail of sunlight, like a faint glow visible through a woven victorian basket…Then the morning brought the chill, which no warmth could contain,and I knew that Winter had come, bringing along,the past, all that we cant escape from, and times that may last for a long time..Its only hope that would give you the ounce of faith to pull through…
