Panorama :

Among all the passions that I have, I place Photography at the top. Photography is such a hobby that continuously strives to make us aware of the present moment. I realize the difference that Photography made in my life. I have started observing everything that goes around me, it has enriched my travelling experiences, it has allowed me to live in the present moment, to see the incomparable beauty of Nature. I have become attached to all the creatures on earth and now I can feel the connectedness between them and me.

I am surprised by myself that everyday I wake up surprisingly early just to capture sunrise from my hostel's balcony. Thanks to this hobby, I have developed enormous love for our Motherland. My love for India has increased thousand-folds. India offers so much diversity in people and traditions that it stands out of the rest of the world in cultural heritage. I consider myself fortunate for being born in a country like this.

Nowadays, in weekends I consciously visit pilgrimages and natural sites for photography and am continuously being touched by people and nature's picturesque scenes.

Just take out time, just 10 minutes, from your daily routine and spend time with nature and see how refreshing it is.

Just wonder, if our world is so beautiful,
then how beautiful be the place where God resides...

Pursuit of Happiness :

yun to guzar raha hai
har ek pal khushi ke saath
fir bhi koi kami si hai
kyun zindagi ke saath

rishtey, wafayen dosti
sab kuch to paas hai
fir aaj is tarah kyun
ye dil udas hai

Searching for that everlasting happiness.

Happiness is a very gross term, it has no definitions........I cant get happiness from this material world unless i am happy with my inner world.

Am a Secular :

I am a secular bcoz I believe in all the religions. I believe in all the religions bcoz(No, it isn't philosophical) every religion has its New Year at different times of the year and I get to make and redefine my earlier New year resolutions which (ofcourse) had not been completed earlier.


I picked up

This winter vacation I picked up some new activities.
1) Photography : Thanks to my Nokia 6300, with a decent 2 mp camera, I have got some really wonderful snaps. The beauty of a photograph lies in its timing and light and shade. A colourful country like India offers wide range for photography. And Delhi, a conglomeration of different cultures offers a much richer diversity to capture. From Chandni Chowk to the Railway Station to High-tech malls to beggars in front of Akshardham, its a great place from the point of photographer. Thats not all, I thank my luck for having my hostel room's directly facing the sunrise offering beauty in bulk.
2) Travelling : Being a travel bug, having travelled almost whole of India, I am never ever satiated with travelling. This time on my trip to Ajanta and Ellora, I learnt a great thing from my Dad i.e. before going to a particular place : Be aware about its history, read magazines, articles and books about that place. This awareness enriches our travelling experience into a broader perspective. Instead of glancing or looking at things we tend to observe and relate to what we have read and this process leaves an imprint, about that place, forever in our mind.
3) Writing : Writing one's own view or experience about any particular thing makes oneself observant and self-satisfied. It allows us look into deeper vistas of our life and sometimes we also get to be awestruck to look at the hidden creativity within us.

Prayer for the New Year :

Lets not allow ourselves to be upset by small things that we can forget in life for "Life is too short to be little."
