A gentle word opens an iron gate-Bulgarian Proverb

Does life’s gate teach us anything?

Yes, my friend.

It teaches one lesson every day.

“Today I close the door to the past.

Open the door to the future.

Take a deep breath, step on through and

Start a new chapter in my life”  Unknown

Too many people miss the silver lining because they’re expecting gold-Maurice Setter

“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you” Carl Sandburg

I have a doubt

Are the coins are still popular?

I guess it’s used but rarely.

Flipping of coin is noticed during matches or when people bet.

I understand that small coins are still used in small businesses because of the decimal added to the product’s price. Otherwise I don’t think they are much in circulation.

Earlier days they were required to make a call from public telephone.

Most of the times I see the coins being thrown into the fountains or wells. If the coin landed heads up, wishes are granted, and it’s time honoured ritual.

It is said, the Trevi Fountain in Rome collects almost $4000 per day (1.5 million per year).

Now that we are in the midst of Covid pandemic, and many places still under lockdown, my guess is over the time the coins may disappear because we are all getting used to the digital currency and many avenues are available for cashless currency.

Do you miss the ‘coins’ when they disappear because of digital onslaught?

I don’t think one should worry too much.

Change is the way of life.

Because of the change and advancement, so many things got outdated and disappeared quietly.

Of course for everything we have ‘collectors’ who keep them for remembrance like any other ‘antique’

What do you think my friends about the survival the coins?

Living Statue

“I am a living statue

Unable to move

unable to speak

To feel

People walk by

Some look at me

Others are busy with their phones

But no one looks deeper

No one interested in a story

I lost my passion

I have no purpose

I am made of stone

Nothing more than a figure

I am a living statute” LD

How easy is the job of Living Statues?

Living statues are popular in tourist places.

I feel that the living statue job is physically demanding since the muscles of the body get sore and the job is tiring for the persons.

Another hard time is to keep up the posture when people try to distract.

What about the fun part?

But it’s fun to watch when the statue moves or scares the people!

And those who watch these scenes are enthralled!

Do you know that there is the ‘World Living Statues Festival’ celebrated in Arnhem, a city in the Netherlands?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Life in green is a life serene

“It’s been proven by quite a few studies that plants are good for our psychological development. If you green an area, the rate of crime goes down. Torture victims begin to recover when they spend time outside in a garden with flowers. So we need them, in some deep psychological sense, which I don’t suppose anybody really understands yet.” Jane Goodall

Thank you.

Title Quote by Shilpa Ahuja @shilpaahujadotcom”

Paradise is a sip away!

Hot, Hotter & Hottest

Most of the area in India (Excluding Northern most part) has just three seasons. Hot, hotter and hottest.

We are nearing the end of March Month.

We Indians dread the very thought of our lives between April to July months when the temperature rises both mentally and also weather-wise.

The weather is very hot, humid and stuffy. The temperature ranges from 101ºF(39ºC) to 114ºF(46ºC)

Do you Know?

Of the worlds’ 15 hot places 10 are in India. source-El Dorado

Last year Rajasthan’s Chiru recorded the highest temperature of 122ºF(50ºC)

How do people manage this unbearable heat?

It’s is simple.

We are used to this temperature.

We also are aware of why an individual’s temperature rises during these days resulting in heated arguments but ends in a friendly way by sharing coconut water!

Nutritional value of coconut water

Coconut water is always refreshing.

It contains digestible carbohydrates in the form of sugar and electrolytes. It has few calories, less sodium more potassium and much superior to those Gym/Sports drinks.

Coconut water is lower in sugar than fruit juices and for those who are conscious about weight, it can be a magic beverage.

Coconut water keeps you hydrated and at the same time giving the required nourishment for quick recovery from heat-related exhaustion.

Any modern-day ‘life’ lessons?

“In the world of carbonated soft drinks…be someone’s sweet coconut water”  Smiling Tea 

 

Thank you.

Focus on the subject

Selective Focus

What is that we are trying to focus-

Foreground or Background? what else?

“I don’t judge people.
It blurs out the center of my attention,
my focus,
myself.”  Toba Beta

“You don’t get results by focussing on the results. You get results by focussing on the actions that produce results”  Mike Hawkins

 

Leading lines

Are there any rules in Photography?

“To consult the rules of composition before making a picture is a little like consulting the law of gravitation before going for a walk.” Edward Weston

 

Color

What exactly B&W photography conveys?

What is that extra kick colour photos give?

“One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty” Paul Outerbridge

 

Focussing on the eyes

“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter – often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter – in the eye.”  Charlotte Bronte

 

Freezing In Action

“Sometimes the best thing you can do is, not to think, not to wonder, not to imagine, not to obsess.Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best”  Unknown

 

Arch

“The real voyage of discovery consists not seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”   Marcel Proust

Varying shades of a single color

This is an aerial view of the field, green representing the grass and I was wondering how different shades noticed in the grass. What could be the reason? I don’t know

Varying shade of single colour

Whoever always looks for greener grass on the other side will never be able to appreciate the green grass that was right under their feet the entire time. One who is always looking for the next best thing will never be happy or satisfied with what or who they have.”  Doe Zantamata
