It’s a wonderful world!

All of us know that our world is wonderful and Louis Armstrong ‘s song ‘What A Wonderful World’! beautifully conveys the feelings.

We know that the wonder surrounds us throughout in the form of Mother Nature.

It’s awe inspiring!

We can find beauty in everything we see.

Whether you sit on the edge of Trolltunga cliff (Norway) or make a road trip through death valley (USA)…the wonderful feeling you experience can’t be described.

I wished to look at our world slightly in a different way.

We all exist because of our parents.

Is this not a wonderful feeling?

“Life is beautiful. It’s about giving. It’s about family”  Walt Disney

Wonders of Parenthood – Even when it’s hell, it’s heaven!

“One of the greatest titles in the world is parent, and one of the biggest blessings in the world is to have parents to call mom and dad” Jim DeMint

Wonderful Dad

“A dad is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you, even when you fail”  Unknown

Wonderful Mother!

A mother’s love and care towards her children is nothing but a labor of love.

“Mothers do achieve the impossible, finding time to raise their children, run their households, work, volunteer, and care for spouses, pets and elderly parents.” Amy Newmark

Motherhood is a sweet labor of love.

“What is unconditional love? Someone asked me. I looked at my mother”  unknown

In the photo above, you can notice that this mother  60 + yrs, is struggling with the hand pump to draw municipal water, in the street to help the family’s basic daily water needs, since water is a scarce commodity.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Shades and shadows

Shade & Shadow

sometimes these terms confuse us.Do they convey the same meaning?

No, my friend. They are different.

That’s the beauty of the English Language.

I understand that most of the European languages have just one word to represent both.

 

Shade

Denotes a significant sized dark area resulting from the blocked light source.

Here the importance is given to the absence of light.

The shape of the shadow is vague.

Examples – shade from a tree or shade from a light-house.

Object blocking the light is irrelevant.

Shade indicates shield from light.

In this image below, the road and most of the river covered by shade

The thing about the light that shines within us is we have the option to put a shade on it, which impedes the light from emitting, or take the shade off it, which allows the world around us to become illuminated.Jeffrey G. Duart

 

 

Shadow

Denotes a dark area with a definite shape. Here, the object that created the darkness is important.

Example- Our very own shadow from Sunlight.

Object blocking the light is relevant.

Shadow indicates, blockage of light.

“In faith, there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.” Blaise Pascal

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
