Is Today, a Flowery Day?

Looking through a glass,
Purple friends I  found
Peeping through the leaves
I could listen to their sound.

Right with friends and family you say,
What would be life without colors anyway?

Complete with pricks, this path I chose
Blooming alone, I’m a burnt rose.

White, pristine, unblemished.

Raindrops are falling…

Raindrops are falling..

It’s raining here.
After the 152 talukas that had received less than 150mm rainfall in the current season were declared as scarcity-hit, the widespread rains in Gujarat have come as a relief to everyone.

Hoping for the rain to not elude the other dry regions as well.

I don’t really like rains.
Do you like rains?

What’s beauty to you, darling?

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” 

Elisabeth Ross

When my good friend, Munz, was capturing this portrait, he was scared as hell. He was scared because “he might think that I’m mocking his disease”. “But actually”, added Munz, “he was very nice. And he smiled while I was clicking”.

I do not know the portrait-man’s name. But what I know is that he is ultra-courageous. “He’s leading a very successful life right now, running his own business.”
And I cannot even begin to imagine all the hardships and struggles he’d had to face before he reached where he is now. His eyes speak about it all.

“Face is not just an id.
Face is the mirror of the mind.
A face can tell you stories;
A single look can transcend thousands of unspoken words,
Experienced almost all emotions of life.
Some faces will haunt you. Yes, haunt you.
You can dig out the whole life-story…”

– Munz

INDEED.
