Playing with light just like it plays with us.
A different kind of fun.
Rest of the photos are in Black & White.
It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
~ Aristotle Onassis
Who in the rainbow can draw the line where the violet tint ends and the orange tint begins? Distinctly we see the difference of the colors, but where exactly does the one first blendingly enter into the other? So with sanity and insanity.
“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.”
~ Alexandre Dumas
(French Novelist and Playwright, 1802-1870)
I think they both have their own charm. No comparison!
This leaf is the same leaf which I shared in my post : Brutal Nature – “Ooh that hurts!”
I was hoping that it would survive but it didn’t. It is the only leaf which has dried up among its green fellows.

This photograph was taken on 11th March of this year.
The header picture is of the tree just outside the window of my workplace. Recently, the red flowers have bloomed, and red and green make a good couple, so I just clicked it (a few hours ago).
As I always say -
GREEN. IS. GOOD.

As reflection is within the mirror,
So does your Lord abide within you,
Why search for him without?”

It was a beautiful, beautiful day! I still am glad that I got that opportunity to visit this place. That was the first and the only time I visited it. I hope to do it again someday. The feeling there is something inexplicable.
This photo was clicked using a 2MP mobile camera. Just felt like sharing it today.
“Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of
the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.”
- Zenkei Shibayama
Yay, Spring is here! Cheers.
These flowers decorate the boundary walls of a school named DPS (near Badhani, Punjab). I always look forward to observe this place whenever I pass from here. It’s so colorful and clean.

Have a colorful March, everyone!
It’s always amazing to experience the transition from the rough turns of the Himalayas to the never-ending waves of the vast Indian Ocean. A very beautiful experience, indeed. And the realization that, this whole world is so so big and yet what remains with us is the world which we all have created in our minds, is spell-bounding. Yet again, I come to realize of our Existential Aloneness.
”Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment.”
~ Morihei Ueshiba

“A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.”
Have a happy weekend everyone!
