Wishes, Flowers

‘When you know what you want the whole world conspires you to achieve it’ – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Wishes, Flowers...
“It’s as if there’s a benevolent conspiracy of unknown people that is tirelessly creating hundreds of useful things you like and need.” – Rob Brezsny, Antidote for Paranoia

*I was looking for a flower shot for someone special. And was disappointed after I shot about a hundred pics at this stop on our way to another city. It was when we started driving, and that I saw the pictures again, I realised, what I thought was some dirt on moss, was actually a very tiny flower. :)

Music of Thought

Everyone has a fascination for music.
I categorise music in 2 types. The Foreground & The Background.

Dance & Rock n Roll. Foot tapping and Head Banging on Music – The Foreground Type.

The subtle music playing your car, in your room, in your phone – The Background Type.

There was a time when I was The ‘Foreground’ Fan. And then the priorities changes. I love being in the Background category now.
I love to have goosebumps when I hear particular scores of music.
Music of Thought

I believe, being happy & content is complimented by Music.

Eerie

Eerie
A Walk in the Park can refresh you.
If it is Eerie, its all the more better. It will scare the shit out of you, and your ugly thoughts.. :D

Horsie, Bad Horsie

A very Exciting Moment. A little Scary. A little Panicy.

Bad Horsie

The Horsie, who was a little too active for the morning, down on the sand in a very playful mood. (*It Scared us for a while too.. ) :D

This picture always reminded me of the Steve Vai Performance – ‘Bad Horsie’ from ‘Alien Love Secrets’

Eyes on Rent

This is a common spectacle at the Gateway of India. You can get Binoculars on rent as cheap as $2 per hour.
Eyes on Rent
The Gateway is traditionally the first thing visitors arriving by boat would see of Mumbai. Behind the Gateway steps lead down to the waterfront, where boat trips can be had to locations such as Elephanta Island.

A Part of the Series ‘Mecha’

Shutter.141

Coming from a Mechanical Engineering Background, the stuff we studied about during our Graduation, has developed a lot of fascination in me.
The series ‘Mecha’ tries to explore the mechanical side of things. And to some extent combine my Formal Education with my Formal Passion.

Hold Me. Feel Safe.

The Train

A Local Train Door-Pole. And a Night view of another Train rushing past.
- The picture was taken from inside a Local Train Compartment, before Sunrise, using the Light coming from within the Compartment itself.

The Past few weeks have gone by in Top Gear. Just like these images. The Speed & The Rush in my Life is somehow preventing me to write too.

Perseverance

Tireless 2009
May this year be full of Energy!
And Give you the Strength to follow your Dream.
May the path you take lead you to where you want to be.
May this year help us Work Harder, Be Tougher (& More Compassionate), Think Smarter & Get Better.

- The Railroad Tracks always remind me of their Persistent Strength to exist.
May the road you choose give you strength like these.

This is a part of the Series of 5 Prayers That I wrote for you for the coming Year & the Days that follow.

God Bless!

Perseverance

The Song that never fails to amaze me.
The one that Pushes you to do that extra bit.

“So many times
it happens too fast
you trade your passion for glory
don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
you must fight just to keep them alive

It’s the eye of the tiger
its the cream of the fight
risin up to the challenge of our rivals
and the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
and he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger” – ‘Eye of the Tiger’ Performed by Survivor
