Be strong and determined my friend


“The wings of transformation are born of patience and struggle” Janet S. Dickens

Do you know why a butterfly is the happiest?

A butterfly says, “The caterpillar-me is history, my metamorphosis, a mystery, and today is a present. My struggle gifted me” Manali Oak

Patience is a virtue

We all know this.

My friend, if you possess this quality, you are the winner in every aspect of your life.

If you have patience, the actions which you take are based on not rashness but a proper assessment of the situation giving you the advantage.

Having patience is not an easy task but in the end, you love its fruits.


“To lose patience is to lose the battle” Mahatma Gandhi

Whether it’s the things or the persons (we are with) that we routinely see or come across, we never care.

We take things for granted.

We give the least attention.

I don’t know the reason why we behave like this.

But we behave differently when we notice similar beauty in a different place.

Strange are the ways of human behaviour!

Everything that the spider needs to make a spider-web is not found in the housefly it’s right there in the spider! Whatever you need to make an impact is in you! Discover yourself and make a difference! Israelmore Ayivor

The above image is that of an Orb-weaver spider.

Just look at its majestic pose.

What about the design of the web?

The moment you see a spider, feel like crushing it. Because you are scared.

“The spider crawls eight legs and furry: Better get out in a hurry!” Rusty Fischer

Why you should not kill a spider?

Because spiders eat disease-causing pests like mosquitoes, roaches, flies and clothes.

Believe me, if I say, they are the best home pest controllers.

You are indebted lifelong to these eight-legged wonders!!

Humans have already caused enough damage to Mother Nature and the present Corona Virus pandemic giving the warning bell!

Have a ‘Live & let live’ motto and share your home with these great creatures.

“If you want to live and thrive, let the spider run alive.” Spanish proverb

Spider is a magnificent creature and an Engineering marvel and millimetre perfect!

Spiderwebs are always amazing.

5 Life’s Lessons to be learnt from the spider

1.Patience is a bitter plant, but its fruit is a sweet Chinese proverb.

It takes about a minimum of an hour to spin its web which easily gets disrupted repeatedly and you must know that spiders are not disappointed and rebuild their web every day and wait for the catch patiently.

Spiders tell humans to work daily with responsibility and to have patience. Rome is not built in a day and rewards are astonishing. We must have faith in our work.

2.Life is fragile. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow so give it everything you’ve gotTim Cook

Spiders web looks delicate but scientifically it is stronger than steel. Similarly, our life is fragile and just like a spider makes its best effort to build a web and wait for the catch we must make our best efforts to lead a better life.

Let us remember that we are stronger than we think.

3. Always expect the worst, and you will never be disappointed   Peter Wastholm

Any number of times, you destroy the web, never spider complains, instead patiently rebuilds its web, spider already knew its home is temporary and prepared to rebuild the damaged web.

So if you are mentally prepared for the worst you are sure to rebuild your career. Perseverance matters.

4.Creativity –“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt”   Sylvia Plath.

The creativity of the spider, in the web formation, is unique and the spider never goes into self-doubt. Humans should adapt to creativity. There should be constant creativity of the soul. Never doubt your abilities.

5.Don’t wait for the perfect time to start making changes to your life. The time is now   Chris Gardner
The spider never looks for a perfect site or day and it knows where the food is available and quickly starts building the web.

Don’t wait for the perfect day or perfect time. There is no such thing.

Get started today, try to reach the goals, whatever you are planning.

Take-home point

“Each of us is a unique strand in the intricate web of life and here to make a difference” Deepak Chopra

Thank you.

Take care of your skin than cover it up with makeup

” Be good to your skin, you will wear it everyday for the rest of your life”. Unknown

What is Loofah?

Loofah (loofas) is a shower accessory used for getting clean while rubbing on the body along with soap solution…

These loofahs have course and spongy consistency with a feel-good factor, as you clean your body.

I am not sure whether it’s still popular these days.

How important is skincare?

“Take care of your skin and your confidence will take care of itself.”
Amit Kalantri

Loofahs are made up of…

It can be synthetic fibres are natural (from Luffa gourds)

The Luffa gourd plants are commonly found in Japan

And advantages of body scrubbing…

✔Along with the soap solutions, it helps to cleanse your skin.

✔Helps in exfoliating (removing the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin) the skin on your body and face.

✔Stimulates the blood circulation

✔Skin appears shiny

✔You feel rejuvenated after the shower

How safe is Loofah?

Usage of loofah has some hidden risks.

That is the reason I choose this topic.

After use, usually, hang the loofah up in the shower area so that it can dry up over time.

Dead skin cells are accumulated in the fibre net and a sure recipe for multiplication of the germs since the shower environment is nice for organisms to multiply (humid, no air circulation)

This requires that you should thoroughly clean your loofah regularly before you dry it for using it next time, otherwise bacteria are back on your body.

If you are still using a loofah these days, it’s time you start rethinking!

If you still love ‘Loofah’ scrub

All is not lost.

Suggestion given are

  • Thoroughly dry it after usage
  • Replace it frequently
  • Microwave it (20 seconds), avoid microwaving plastic loofahs
  • Using washing machines or treating with bleaching solutions allowed.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Colourless Wings

“The most colorful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colors and at the same time excludes all.” Vikrmn

I felt something different about this dragonfly.

Every time I come across a dragonfly, I notice its colourful wings.

The dragonfly above showing Black & white wings and a colourful body. Strangely its face & mouth resembling that of a monkey(side post..profile view).

Do you like colourful life or colourless life my friend?

Everybody wishes their lives to be colourful throughout.

But is this possible?

“If you are living a colourless life, it doesn’t matter whether the world is colourful or not!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Thank you.

Challenge Your Camera #10 Close Up


Is the above photograph that of a honey bee? I am not sure. But my guess is it’s some kind of bee, busy in gathering the nectar.

In Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says that one should work without expecting the fruit.

But in our case we don’t work hard, rather we are lazy and enjoy the hard work of the bee. (Honey).

At least do we ever express our gratitude to bee any time? No, instead we are busy killing them because we are scared of its sting.

Bee does all the hard work and we enjoy the fruits.

“Not a single bee has ever sent you an invoice”   Unknown

Soap Bubbles

“Your ego maybe just a soap bubble. Maybe for a few seconds, it will remain, rising higher in the air. Perhaps for a few seconds, it may have a rainbow, but it is only for a few seconds. In this infinite and eternal existence, your egos go on bursting every moment. It is better not to have any attachment with soap bubbles”  Rajneesh


“You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow”. Jack Black

“The human eye uses the eyebrow as an anchor point for the rest of the face. This is why a woman can look truly stunning without any makeup but perfectly shaped, full eyebrows”.  Anastasia Soare

Do you know that Eyebrows tell a lot about what the person is feeling or what he/she about to say or do?

  • Inner corners drawn up- sadness
  • Lowered and close together- anger
  • Raised and arched -surprise
  • Unibrow or continuous brow-since both your eyebrows are connected,it indicates that you barely care about what people think of you

Eyebrows are helpful in face recognition.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

This week Dr.B wants us to try ‘close up’ photography.Thank you Dr.B.for the inspiration and keeping us busy.

Broken Wing

“The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.” Rabindranath Tagore

I took this shot when the butterfly was resting on the ground.

I was wondering why it should rest on the ground instead of flying, because just before I saw it moving from one flower to another in the garden.

I realised that half of its right-wing is torn. What could have been the reason? I don’t know. Maybe a close shave with a spider or lizard.

Maybe it’s getting tired too quickly because of less ‘wing power’…I am not sure.

What does broken wing signify?

Broken wing symbolises a person who is hurt badly and emotionally.

Said to be common among people who are highly sensitive.

Still, all is not lost. One can make sincere efforts to ‘fly’ again and at some stage, the unseen power lifts you high and things become easy to fly again.

This also made me recollect the friendship quote.

“Friendship is like a butterfly’s wing. Once it is torn, it may never fly again” Unknown

No surprise majority of us become introverts as we lose faith in the friendship over time.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

My soul speaks in flowers

Why Purple is an exciting colour?

“Purple colour said to balance the stimulation of Red and calm of Blue.

With a sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is well-liked by very creative or eccentric types

And is the favourite colour of adolescent girls”. sensational colour

“The only medal that I am certain I deserved is the Purple Heart’, Bob Kerrey

Do you know the meaning of Purple Heart?💜💜💜

According to Dictionary.Com

The Purple Heart emoji 💜 depicts a classic representation of a heart, coloured purple. It is commonly used to represent love, support, close bonds, and admiration for things that have some relation to the colour purple.

The other meaning of this emoji is an honour of sacrifice. The Purple Heart medal is awarded to the USA military veterans.

One should be careful in using this emoji in routine chats since it could also mean sexuality. The context is important.

Are there other heart symbols(Emojis)?

Yes, my friend. There are many. Each signifying one type of emotion. You have to get acquainted with the meaning of each!

No need for you to express your feelings physically! Emojis are the modern way of conveying your feelings!

Internet has changed the very meaning of the word ‘L O V E’

Have you used any one of these at any time?

  • Red Heart
  • Yellow heart💛
  • Greenheart💚
  • Blue heart💙
  • Purple heart💜
  • Blackheart🖤
  • Broken heart💔
  • Two hearts💕
  • Revolving heart💞
  • Beating heart💓
  • Sparkling heart💖
  • Heart with ribbon💝
  • Heart with arrow💘
  • Growing heart💗

My guess is millennials know more types of hearts and understand better.

Rest of the generation has to learn and understand how suitably one can express ‘Love’

So granny and grandpa out there…catch with the present generation to show or express love to your better half.

Better undergo a learning course😄😄

OK, my friends.

Have a blessed day my friend.

Spread love, smile, support, close bond and admiration. That is enough.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
