“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” Thomas J. Watson

Art can never exist without naked beauty displayed-William Blake

“The naked truth is always better than the best-dressed lie” Ann Landers

Nude art is Weird and wonderful!

Yes.

That is the way it is!!

I was wondering whether the words ‘nude’ and ‘naked’ convey the same meaning.

Nude vs Naked

Both mean having no clothes on.

But there is a difference in the situation.

‘Nude’ is a kind of pose to bring out the artistic expression in a tasteful way.

‘Naked’ is said to be embarrassed and vulnerable while trying to cover up the body with clothes.

I also understand that male nudity indicates the ‘power’ in the form of a muscular body, while female nudity indicates ‘Feminism’ and ‘delicate being’

How common are these nude statues?

Each period of history had distinct sculptural styles based on the accepted aspects of culture and tradition.

What people feel objectionable these days might have been a basic form of art in those days!

In the Western world, we come across many nude statues in many places.

Male nudes were popular in Greek Art.

In Asian countries, we do see naked statues of medieval times but are restricted to very few places of ancient temples and caves. (Carvings)

Why nudity, of all the things?

My feeling is people were mature in ancient times.

“When we respect the nude, we will no longer have any shame about it” Robert Henri

Men and women had equal status in society and women were never thought of as sex objects and one can easily make out that people, in general, are aware of the difference between adoring the human body and lust.

Artist of those days knew what they were doing

“He who does not master the nude cannot understand the principles of architecture” Michelangelo (1475-1564)

Sadly modern days nakedness is a different story and fast getting commercialized.

I am not sure about other countries, but in India, people, in general, are less comfortable when they come across such statues

Probably ‘culture & tradition of the modern era’ plays a significant role.

Why nude statues were common?

Hats off to ancient times, when men and women respected each other, were treated equally and their dressing styles were similar.

My guess is in the olden days topless body was common among both men and women which was never considered erotic, so most of the art depicted was in the form of topless body and never anybody said bad about this, after all, whatever ancient art we come across, it must be depicting the social norms prevailing in those days.

This ancient culture may also be linked to hot climates.

Life is simple just add water

“When the water is calm, take as much distance as possible with your boat!” Mehmet Murat ildan

Water and life are inseparable

Interesting to note that water provides no calories are nutrients yet is a centre piece of life.

And water is hard to crack!

“When life places stones in your path, be the water. A persistent drop of water will wear away even the hardest stone.” Autumn Morning Star

Water Philosophy

“Surrender to the flow of the River of Life, yet do not float down the river like a leaf or a log. While neither attempting to resist life nor to hurry it, become the rudder and use your energy to correct your course to avoid the whirlpools and undertow.”  Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When I drink I think and when I think I drink-François Rabelais

“We drink one another’s health and spoil our own” Jerome K Jerome

We love everybody in this world

And you agree with me on this.

We wish and pray that everybody lives long, healthy and happy.

We wish that everybody is allowed by the Almighty to see their great-grandchildren and if possible their children too!

But then drinking one another’s health adds to the problem.

Can this be true that we drink one another’s health and spoil our own??

This can be understood in two ways.

1.In the alcoholic world.

2.In our family world.

In the alcoholic world

Are we drunkards?

Don’t we have self-control?

Don’t we have willpower?

Is there any chance that this quote telling the truth?

“First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you” F. Scott Fitzgerald

In the family world

Probably it can mean that parents toil to give a better life to their children and then the grand children and……then their children…they may continue this in their 90s at the cost of their health just to see that everybody in the family tree is comfortable and we’ll settled.

” We grew up thinking that our parents did not understand our struggles but the truth is they made sure we never felt theirs” Unknown

Here parents are spoiling their health and happiness so that their offspring lead a decent life.

Is this for a selfish reason??

The sun always shines above the clouds- Paul F Davis

“Only the clouds can tell where hidden sun-rays dwell” Munia Khan

We are in no way different from ocean creatures

“It is easy to forget that you live in the sky – not beneath it, but within it. Our atmosphere is an enormous ocean, and you inhabit it. This ocean is made up of the gases of air rather than liquid water, but it is as much of an ocean as the Atlantic or the Pacific. You may think of yourself as living on the ground, but all that means is that you are a creature of the ocean bed. You still inhabit the atmosphere like a sea creature does the water.”

Kill fire before it executes you

Fire Extinguisher 🔥 in our lives

“The Hopelessness of life is a weak fire, that can only be extinguished using the fire extinguisher called Hope” Auliq-ice

Thank you, Firefighters!

“Nothing cries out for compassion, concern, and danger as a fire engine screams by carrying firefighters ready to do battle without flinching from any demand” Byron Pulsifer

We rarely express our gratitude

We never thank people enough.

We are a selfish lot.

This is human’s nature.

Human tragedy.

When We don’t even remember God in our happy days where is the question of remembering anybody doing either a thankless job or some social services.

But we do remember when there is a requirement!!

Just like how well we remember God when we are undergoing difficulties in our life, we too remember firefighters when your neighbourhood catches fire.

Here you are calling them because of your selfishness since your house may be in danger of being engulfed by the burning neighbour’s house.

There are more than 25 most dangerous jobs in the world where a mishap can result in death.

But do we remember these professionals who risk their lives to make our lives easier?

My friend all that we do is dedicate one day to these heroes and thank them and then forget the next minute.

After all, life has to move on!

International Firefighters day is celebrated on May 4 every year

This day is celebrated to honour the work and sacrifices made by these professionals.

This day is also celebrated to pay respect to those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

This day is also celebrated to bring awareness among people regarding fire prevention and safety methods adopted when there is a fire.

On this day people wear symbolic red and blue ribbon badges.

The red colour symbolized fire while the blue colour represents water.

So next year On May 4th try to salute these heroes.

Message

  • Think of fire before it starts.
  • Never trust fire.
  • Electrical safety leads to fire safety.
  • Fire prevention…Do it for life.

Sunday Silent Advice

“We need to find God, and he can not be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence.

See how nature-trees, flowers, grass- grow in silence; See the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence.

We need silence to be able to touch souls” Mother Teresa
