Life in colour- Gold

“The statue of the Laughing Buddha act as a good friend. Whenever we are off the track, his smiling face can bring us back to the present moment, to a positive mood” Sakshi Chetana

Take my word, my friend.

You never face any problem in your life if you follow this advice

“Conquer anger with non-anger. Conquer badness with goodness. Conquer meanness with generosity. Conquer dishonesty with the truth” Buddha

I know it’s very difficult to follow.

Anybody can advise.

But this advice is not from an ordinary person.

My friend, just try once and you notice a sea of difference.

You are in total bliss.

Yes, my friend, you need not search for happiness.

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

My friend, what are your thoughts on cell phone Photography?

I must confess that most of the cell phone photos I take are substandard as compared to DSLR or Mirrorless cameras.

I have tried many cell phones cameras of a different make.

I am also aware of the technical limits of the cell phone camera.

Ironically high-end cell phones have become costlier than DSLR cameras!

The whole thing boils down to portability, ease of use and multifunctionality

The only advantage with the cell phone is, it’s handy and clicking the photos are much faster even before an outsider realises that a photo is taken.

It’s a boon during street photography since many won’t notice you.

A cell phone is perfectly OK as long as we don’t mind the quality of the image.

But satisfaction with the quality of the photos taken depends on the eyes of the person…beauty in the eyes of the beholder!

Cell phone manufacturers claim that their photos are superior to their competitors.

Coming to my image above

The above image is taken with my One Plus 6 cell phone.

As you can see in the above image, there is a sofa in need of an urgent repair, but kept on the pavement by some unknown.

Maybe it’s kept for transportation to the repair shop or maybe it is thrown out because it’s become junk.

Since it’s on the pavement I guess it’s discarded.

Most of the road users, when they see such things on the pavements, get disgusted or annoyed and curse the maintenance department of the agencies and also the people who threw the sofa irresponsibly.

What is the point I am trying to say?

The point I am stressing here is that nothing goes to waste in this world.

As long it’s there on the pavement, there are lesser fortune people who can have a nap and enjoy the rest of the day.

Any needy can pull up this sofa and have a siesta!

Don’t complain. 

Either you get a suitable or workable solution to the problem or just shut up (instead of whining).

Bathing in the River

Once I have gone to bathe in a river. 

By bathing the water cleansed the body.

I told my friends “there’s another river, bathe in it and you will cleanse the inner being too”

They asked, “Which river is this?”

I answered ” The river of Love” Osho

My friend, believe me if I say….this river of Love is very very scarce at any given point..

One may come across exceptions, but mostly we fail to understand the real meaning of ‘TRUE LOVE’

If you really experience this ‘true love’ and continues to enjoy the same…then you need nothing from this world!

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Tomorrow is another day, and there will be another battle!-Sebastian Coe

“it turns out we were some people which has been chosen by God to be happy in a different way # beggars” ys sroyer

The topic ‘Another Day’ reminded me of Phil Collin’s song ‘Another day in Paradise’

An emotionally touching song! Worth watching and listening!

Love this song.

For you and me it’s another day in Paradise.

But for beggars and homeless- it’s another day of battle!

Why begging?

Begging can be out of necessity or because it has become a habit.

Poverty is the main culprit.

I don’t have any idea of beggars or homeless people in other parts of the world, but in India, we do come across beggars and homeless people in most of the cities.

Problems faced by the beggars are too many including no home or proper food and poor hygiene.

Less said better about their health condition.

I also understand that there are gangs that force people to beg.

Chances of getting abused or trashed (thinking that the person is a thief) are possible.

It’s much worse in case of disability.

The government is helping these helpless people by taking various measures to stop it.

Many NGOs are also helping in eradicating this problem.

Another day in beggar’s life

Let us imagine ourselves as a beggar.

  • When you wake up in the morning no water to brush your teeth or take a bath
  • Proper clothing and grooming are your biggest problems
  • You must live nearby restrooms (provided by the Government & NGOs)
  • No breakfast most of the times
  • If you are lucky you may get breakfast at the wastage bin near a hotel
  • If you are fortunate, during begging you may get some coins, if unlucky you may be showered scolding and shouting
  • If your coins are sufficient in number and worth, then you can try your luck for lunch which is not guaranteed every day
  • Forget your dinner
  • You get drenched during rainy days and have to sleep or sit on those drenched pavements
  • During hot summer days…chances of you getting dehydrated and suffer sunstroke- a possibility.
  • As a pavement dweller, you can get hit by erratic vehicle drivers

I can go on and on…

So before you complain…

“Before you complain about your life, remember the life you are living might be someone else’s dreams” Manoj S Naik

But life is life and to be lived fully!

“There were worse things than death, as she’d discovered. Sometimes living took far more courage. Facing another day. Enduring. Those things took strength. Far more than dying” Maya Banks

Focal point

Focus point on the flower

Focus point on the chain-link fence

The focal point is an interesting and most important aspect of photography.

Blurring the image can be intentional or accidental.

But we prefer to have perfect clarity and sharpness of the selected image in photography.

This is achieved by concentrating the area of interest before we press the shutter button preferably with back button focus.

What can be the Focal point in our life?

My friend, if you are serious there is one such thing that you can follow.

This should start right from within.

“Let love be the focal point of your daily life. May you find hope, peace, faith and love in each other’s arms” Unknown

And be positive all the time, a piece of regular advice easy to give but difficult to follow.

Blue Sky behind the White clouds

“Clouds in the sky very much resembles the thoughts in our minds! Both changes perpetually from one second to another” Mehmet Murat ildan

Many times we come across a lot of obstacles in our life.

Sometimes we are confused and other times we are depressed.

And most of us take it for granted that gloomy days are ahead.

It’s not so my friend.

Always imagine that good things are going to happen.

Saturday Saying

In the above image, how do you think the plant not only surviving but blooming with flowers.

How is this possible?

All the rocks and stones have cracks in them.

And these cracks hold water during the rainy season.

Also, the water from beneath the rock is absorbed by the plant roots through the capillary suction.

“Relationships are more important than life, but it’s important for those relationships to have life in them…” Swami Vivekananda

Here the relations ship between rock and plant is…in the form of water which is the ‘life’ sustaining the plant.

But what exactly do we do?

My friend, I have come across many families and friends who boast of the number of cousins or number of friends and how well it’s closely knitted.

Facebook, Instagram etc talks about the number of follows.

Sadly they are not finding ‘life’ in these relationships.

Everything is they talk about is superficial and many miss the real bond.

All are egoistic.

No question of ‘give and take policy.

No need to complain or feel bad.

It’s OK.

And that is how we lead our life!

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
