Art of Simplicity

Some years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco.

Mensa, is an international organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe.

When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand?

Clearly — this was a job for Mensa minds.

The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.

They then called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution.

“Ma’am,” they said, “we couldn’t help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker contains pepper…”

But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted & said…

“Oh — sorry about that.”

She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

For most of the problems in our lives there are simple solutions, but it is our “Brilliant” minds that complicate every simple solution. …Change the Caps and enjoy life !!

Simplicity resides in the complexities

Complexity is just simplicity turned upside down.

Bridge of Love

Bridge of love


As we stand on this bridge of love
Living life in this now by the river of time
That flows on in its own course.
How wonderful it would be to always remember …..
It’s the way of love to bridge the spaces in between
It’s the way of love to build a connection
It’s the way of love to show the way
It’s the way of love to linger in memories just as much as…
It’s the way of love to let go and move on
It’s the way of love to mend the broken
It’s the way of love to accept and allow
It’s the way of love to empower with hope
It’ss the way of love to sense pain and pleasure.
It’s the way of love to brings out words to share from the heart.
It is the way of love to shine through a smiling heart
For love is the gift of life
And its the way of love to be filled with gratitude for its beautiful ways.

Dedicated to ‘Love’ and the ones I deeply love 💙


Illusions in the reflections 

Reflections in the stillness

On a patch of water

Reflections of sunlight

On a passing cloud

Reflecting colours

We humans have named…

The truth of clarity

Is the freedom in the uncertain

What seems to be, may not be

What is, may be not

What is apparent, may be invisible

What is assumption, may become a contradiction

Or simply delusions of our own imagination.

Or simply a clarity of illusions in the reflections.


Was watching the reflections of sunlight dancing on this patch of water on the window sill of my terrace one evening.  I was mesmerized by the fleeting cloud it had captured and its amazing colours that held my fancy for a long while…

The lady on the tree

In that center of placid calm stands an angel of hope and resilience

She has birds of hope surrounding her haloed presence

Be like the lady on the tree

In the stillness of the water…sensing your spirit feel so free

Climb the tree in the serenity of the calm and unwind

Bring composure to the cursory mind

Move away from the mundane

And feel more humane.

See the birds dancing by your side

Singing their sweet song of hope that will always reside !

Tread gently and softly move

In your journey as you find your groove

Climb that tree and rest awhile

Witness the water silently settle…

Renew your spirit and discover your mettle

Delve in the solitude seeking the clarity in the calmth  unbound

As in still waters… runs deep, the wisdom profound

​Explore your being!

Artwork by Savvy Raj

Dare to explore the magnitude of your being
Unlock the infinite wisdom you hold within without knowing
You have the answers you are seeking
You have to just try to be, all that you choose to being
Ignore the pitfalls… Ignore the naysayers
Increase the threshold to one that bears
Increase the ability and be the one who perseveres
You are in the right place at the right time that adheres
To make the so called trivial in you valuable.
So make every moment  preciously accountable
Strengthen your being
Know you are sufficient and self  sustaining
Just remember
You are enough for you!

We will travel afar…

An Artwork by Savvy Raj ‘Spectrum of Stars’

We need to come to place of understanding where

We do not discriminate between man and nature

We are humans and we are part of nature.

Our nature makes us who we are as much as the nurture.

And  we are beautiful in our uniqueness.

We are breathtaking in our magnificience.

We are bound by the very same laws of nature.

We are challenged in its fervour

We are santified in its glory.

We are crucified in its destruction.

We are celebrated for cocreation.

We are complex in our ways of being.

But we are no different from nature.

We are born, we breath and we are perishable.

Although full of life we may be but we are totally accountable

As we are blessed with conscious choice

Free will and intention.

And that makes way for infinite potential.

We are our own wayfarers in the choices.

We make our own present and future

Like we made our past.

We are made of stars

And will travel afar…


Speaking Pictures 2

​She seems calm and composed and at complete ease .

A pretty picture of her face framed by her curly locks.

She seems to know more than she wants to tell

Her smile seems to sense much more as well

Her truth is hers alone, as her lips may seal

Oh! but what all a good capture can reveal.


Our personna is so transparent on the verge

Of Shadows thrown open to light

The  inner and outer may merge

And unmask thoughts that may be shut tight.

Shadows of past out in the open today

And capture thoughts  held at bay

All it takes to know is a shutters click

In perfect timing of  what to shoot & pick

This picture was shared on one of my networks in Social Media  and I felt compelled to take a second glance …. the picture spoke much and my pen had to flow to capture the thoughts on this pretty capture.

Light on the dark

Emotions unveiled

Of memories & musings 

A photo reveals it all!


Amazing Photo of a Beautiful Child 😊
