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….
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….
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.
Sometimes it’s heartfelt to observe the inner feelings that would erupt from the inside. Sometimes the very heart misses a beat when thoughts of the past and the present can create an aura of pain deep within, but sometimes being alone is what we all need to undergo as a part of life. Our footprints get washed away only to replicate themselves once again in a few footsteps…….Our life our very precious life is very much ours to take care of. You are the ultimate guardian and parent for yourself…………there couldn’t be anyone better
Hidden but not visible. True but still not the best.Intricate but not really complicated is what man is. Like the four sides of a cube which are the four phases of life , we still are amazing in the way that we are and as we are. Identifying our strengths and the weaknesses that we possess are what we fail to recognize in ourselves and our amazing abilities always remain as the hidden talents that would probably always remain submerged.
Could you ever become like me. You have everything, I have nothing, yet I am happy
