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….
Sometimes we stop and think of the past , of a hundred years ago when life would have been so very different. We never had technology or i-phones, but when we may have had the time to sit on such embankments and immerse our legs in the water and gazed at the white blue skies.
Work may have been easy and we may have had time for everyone we cared about, someone we could talk to and share our thoughts with.Life may have not been mere Facebook and twitter message. Those may have been times when Facebook meant , we saw each other faces and carried books to record our memories.
I would like to ponder and wonder ,would such times come back or would we keep advancing into this technology filled world day after day and finally have these memories in photographs only or would we make some effort to bring back these times……
“The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.”
“I don’t know the meaning of life. I don’t know why we are here. I think life is full of anxieties and fears and tears. It has a lot of grief in it, and it can be very grim. And I do not want to be the one who tries to tell somebody else what life is all about. To me it’s a complete mystery.”
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.
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.
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We all are a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me
Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand
When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Let’s realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one
