Shadows shimmer too!



Trust light to shine itself

Trust the shadows to find light

All is not dark forever

For light shimmers on shadows

What’s hidden uncovers itself

At some point or the other

Trust in time

Develop patience

Patterns are meant to shape

And change itself along the way

What shines has shadows

And shadows shimmer too!

Keep the faith

Shadows will find the light

All is meant to be well and bright.

A Beautiful Blessed Day!

Every morning is a proof
Of another shift in her axis
By our mother earth.

We are wiser by a day
After each and every night
To emerge anew at dawn.

Let our dawn spring forth in freshness
Of our spirit for living life well.
Let us discard the spurious.

Let us work with empathy for nature
Respectful of their presence in our lives.
For we are made of the very elements of nature.

Nature is in each of us.
Earth wind fire and water and space…
We are a force of nature.

Let us move with care
Let us proceed with dignity
And never take ourselves for granted.

Let us recognize the infinite intelligence
Bestowed in our being by nature
Let us be the best expression of our being.

As we move closer to our authenticity.
We will resonate to the truth of our life .
We will move closer to the purpose of being.

A beautiful blessed day to you all!

Heart of the Arts.

Created from a few drops of water

My artwork . Art of the heart. Created from few drops of water.

When I chose to study arts many years ago I chose it because I loved arts I was drawn to it just as much as I was drawn the physics of artistry or the philosophy of science. I wanted to understand more, I always felt there is so much to contemplate and discover for oneself, to discuss and reflect with one another.

Today having joyful engaged with many professional paths in my career over the years in both mainstream and offbeat tracks, I am voicing what’s in my heart.

Speaking from the Indian perspective
in those days, arts was a stream not taken by the so-called achievers, it was not for those who wanted to study management and have mainstream careers. It was way to become a future teacher or an artist. Not too many career options were thought to be open for the arts graduate. It was often ignorantly assumed that those who did not do well in Math and Science subjects will end up with the arts.

I knew then how wrong it was to segregate people into water tight compartments and more so to differentiate between subjects as unimportant and unnecessary. Unlike the times today, where every field of study has great scope… arts was given a frivolous status.
Thankfully over the years from literature to performance art from entertainment to edutainment, the range and the scope of art and its application grew to encompass a lot more.

Education suddenly realized the holistic approach to education and started integrated methods of education. With awareness came the realization that nothing exists in a vacuum.
There is interdependence in between various subjects and there are areas that are common to two different pathways. And in the intermingling new thoughts emerge and evolve in time.

Truly so, arts is interwoven in the tapestry of life and living. The way we are, the way we move and chose to flow with life everything is part of an artful flow . For life is an art in itself.

Today more than ever this very art is making life bearable.
There is a sudden leaning towards the arts, to poetry, paintings and prose, to dance and music, there are takers for all things’ art.
Perhaps as a means of entertainment, to simply sense the finer things of life in the interim period with nothing else to do. But art and its application has so much more to offer, in every season, to lift us from our banal mundane existence and creatively enrich and empower our hearts and minds with engaging experiences.
Trust art, to always deliver beyond the apparent.

Create light, feel light, live light!

Always have something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

It will make you a happy person.

And yes the potential to create that beautiful ‘something’ is in each of us.

It simply needs to be acknowledged

As it flows, choose to channel it with love.

Create light, feel light, live light!

Serenity of Silence

Silence is serene

There is a general consensus

That Silence is deep

So much is submerged

Between the apparent and the hidden

Beneath the layers of learnings.

Is the truth of solitude.

In the serenity of silence,

One can tap the wisdom within!
