A slice of a good life

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” Mahatma Gandhi

Bread is the simplest form of food.

Bread is a staple food.

There are more than 30 varieties of bread in the world.

Sadly we take bread for granted all the time

These days we are not giving much importance and respect to the bread-which it is supposed to command!

We forget that bread is a basic food worldwide

Bread plays an important role in religious rituals and cultural life.

Food riots are scary things and can start with a bread shortage.

It’s said bread shortage has ignited the French Revolution.

Bread is prepared from a dough of flour and water. And we waste water just like that.

Are you aware of the Egyptian proverb?

“Rather a piece of bread with a happy heart than wealth with grief.” Egyptian Proverb

The real King

“Bread is the king of the table and all else is merely the court that surrounds the king. The countries are the soup, the meat, the vegetables, the salad, but bread is king.”  Louis Bromfield

Can Bread be a Delicacy?

Yes. It is.

“Malta is the only country in the world where the local delicacy is the bread.”  Alan Coren

What about people wasting food?

Less said better.

In India, there is significant wastage of food during wedding times. India’s estimated 10 million weddings per year said to waste almost 30% of the food.

I am not sure about food being wasted in other countries.

“Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry”  Pope Francis

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Even Busy Bees stop & smell Roses

‘Remain as busy as a bee so that you find no time in discussing the flaw of others. Let your action speak the truth” Swapnam

Are you killing yourself by being busy unnecessarily?

There is nothing wrong with being busy.

But there is something wrong if you are busy to fulfill your greed.

Even the busy bee stops, takes time to smell the flower and picks up the best honey.

“Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life”  Unknown

Spinning like a top

I have been taking photographs of honey bees, hoverflies etc. for quite some time.

One thing I find difficult was photographing the bee when it’s in ‘flight mode’.

I always wished to have a good shot of both the ‘wings’ Viewed from above at the same time with the wings blurred nicely giving a fast-moving ‘spin top’  appearance.

Fortunately, I was successful.

Shutter speed-1/800 sec,f/4.5, Focal length 100 mm, ISO 100

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
