Red goes with everything and red goes with nothing-Chloe Thurlow

“Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath. Every moment is the guru” Joko Beck

“I’m in love with red. I think it’s such a passionate colour. Every flag of every country pretty much has red in it. It’s power, there’s no fence sitting with red. Either you love it or you don’t. I think it’s blood and strength and life. I do love red. I love all colours. Great shades of blue, you find them in nature. They’re all magic” Bryan Batt

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

World’s Oldest Optical Illusion

“Public art is encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks or outdoor public place” PPAC

Bull-Elephant

“Our perceptions are fallible. We sometimes see what is not there. We are prey to optical illusions. Occasionally we hallucinate. We are error-prone” Carl Sagan

Have a look at the above sculpture.

The sculpture work is quite interesting.

Perception paradox

An important teaching in Hinduism is…What we see is not real.

It’s called MAYA (Illusion)

If you look at the sculpture from the left side, you can see the bull raising its head including the horns.

If you just move to the right you start noticing the elephant raising its trunk.

It’s said to be sculpted in the ancient Cholas Dynasty style (907 and 1215 AD)

Mostly misinterpreted as a fight between two animals.

In ancient Indian art, it’s common to find these kinds of combined creatures.

Maybe modern computers or software trying to copy these ideas?

My guess is it’s nothing but the artist’s way of illustrating optical illusion.

Optical Illusion in our daily life?

“There is an optical illusion about every person we meet” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you.

Hello? Is it beer you are looking for?

Hello…Is it me you’re looking for?

The title reminded me of the popular  Lionel Richie’s song Hello, which reached number one on three Billboard music charts.

My God! What a beautiful song!

Such great lyrics!

I loved the way it was scripted.

The song was produced in 1983 and I am sure those born before that time loved the song

Do you know what  BEER stands for?

B = Brew

E= Enjoy

E= Empty

R- Repeat

Secret of Beer

‘Beer is an improvement on the water itself” Grant Johnson

Does beer remove kidney stones-real or myth? 

My friend, it’s true to some extent.

But you should be aware of something about beer’s property and kidney stone’s size. ( Kidney stone size is assessed in ultrasound studies).

Beer is a diuretic, which means it produces a lot of urine and can help passage of stones less than 3 mm. If the stone measures more than 3 mm, don’t expect beer to help you and you will be wasting money on beer at the cost of your health and finance.

Sadly prolonged beer intake makes you dehydrated to remember that beer can increase the risk of uric acid stone formation and damaging kidneys further!

And beer is alcohol my friend, sure to harm your liver.

So always better you consume in moderate quantities.

Finally

“I got 99 problems and beer solves every one of them” Unknown.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

While we wait for life, life passes-Seneca

 

“There is a world out there. Open a window and it’s there” Robin Williams

Why do you ignore your closed windows?

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living.

We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today” Dale Carnegie

When windows are open, as humans how do we behave?

“Two men look out a window. One sees mud, the other sees the stars”  Oscar Wilde

Queue Sense

This is a repost from my achieves.

It is said that people spend billions of hours waiting in line throughout the world, in order to get their things done.

What is Queue?

According to Oxford Dictionary

1.British- A-line or sequence of people or vehicles awaiting their turn to be attended to or to proceed.

2.Computing
A list of data items, commands, etc., stored so as to be retrievable in a definite order, usually the order of insertion.

3.Archaic- A plait of hair worn at the back.

Why do we Queue ? (Standing in the line)

Because it is polite to wait for your turn. Without Queue, there will be chaos, resulting in a further increase in waiting time.

But still, why do some people jump the queue? ( cutting the line )

  • Maybe they lack discipline or
  • Bringing up is not proper
  • Not keeping well or
  • Arrogant or
  • They may miss an appointment in some other place
  • May be carrying a sick child…..

One can go on and on…and surely at least 90% of the time these jumpers face the wrath of others.

 Looks like animals have better queue sense than humans!

Take home message

“An Englishman, even if he is alone, forms an orderly queue of one” George Mikes

Thank you.

Can art be Therapy?

Yes, my friend

It’s said to be an ‘expressive therapy’

Art is nothing but self-expression and through this artists can communicate for the betterment of society.

Art is said to have a healing effect on mentally disturbed people.

What is public art?

Public art is encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks or outdoor public places.

“A wall is a very big weapon. It’s one of the nastiest things you can hit someone with” Banksy

Don’t ask me what is that the above painting conveys… or who is hitting whom!

I can’t answer because I am not an artist.

Let me struggle to find out the answer.

Meanwhile if you get anything from this painting, please let me know.

But I am happy with this art because it’s colourful and I enjoy the colour display and my mind is at peace.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
