Have been growing vegetables in my terrace garden
Every potted plant has a story to tell
A lesson to share in the growing…
Take this tomato plant for instance
So much growth but not many fruits
Perhaps they were densely planted
And hence contained in their pot
A few tomatoes have showed up
Others have yet to see the light of the day
Amongst these few, the tiniest tomato
Is very visible to the eye, having ripened the earliest.
The rest are as yet awaiting
Patiently for their evolution
Like they say
Wisdom hath no age!
Perhaps this tiny one at best
Received the rays of sunshine
Nourished in the nurture.
Matured well before it’s time.

So much for spaces
Gained and lost
Conquered and abdicated
Sensed and enjoyed
Or relinquished in the letting go!
In mindless efforts & attempts at attention one loses track of what truly matters!
Sanity of being and most importantly sensing of life’s moments!
Some songs weild power over us
Of playing with our emotions
Of altering reality in just a while!
Merging reality and dreams
Shifting our perceptions and reactions
Making us cry or laugh as we tune in
Some songs bring memories rushing in
Of moments lived and loved
Songs can create moods
Play on our senses
Shake thoughts up
Or make things feel alright!!
Everyone of us may have
Our own special song
Appealing to our senses
Touching base to who we truly are
Have so many favorite songs
That leave lasting impressions
Of life made a little more memorable
All evoked through those untold stories!
What about you?
minimal or no effort and the result is plain to see. Whatever happened to no pain no gain? Anyway I am not complaining here, hi techno gizmos you are most welcome.
The thing that is a cause for concern is that with all this easy way of living that technology brings forth there is a paradigm shift in the thinking of this new generation of hi tech users who are so hooked up to these gadgets of convenience that they expect it to be so in all others areas of life too… The emotional ,physical ,personal aspects of life cannot somehow become machine like and that’s how it is seeming to be.
Many are aware of their growing sense of inadequacies in mutual relationships. The lack of care and concern due to time, and work pressure is somehow seen to be adjusted and neutralized by hi tech gadgets in our households. So much that the person lets the products of convenience make up for his personal presence or absence in family situations and experiences.
Similarly if one notices most students are averse to listening to another and taking in information from another as their attention span for personal communication is overridden by convenience of Internet, chats and social networks and group calls so why bother.
Every house in the city and even villages are connected with Internets, so there is a network of telecommunications system without any hazard control measure in place.
Lack of empathetic responses makes us more and more mechanical in our approach and we seem to be losing the humane side of us. This is exactly what is happening on a large scale. People are growing indifferent and unapproachable, shrewd and over efficient for a purpose. There is no genuineness left in most relationships as well, everything is for what can I make from this.
So whether its education or otherwise the trend is to conveniently download information and present your work as done instead of contemplative thought and deep understanding. There are very few individuals who are not caught in this web of technology and their numbers is dwindling…
My reflections on this beautiful picture….
Sun kissed leaves shine like gold
Majestic tall trees lined with wisdom untold
A winding woody path so green
emerges in between …
It beckons you onto a journey to the unknown
Yet with the radiant light of the sun leading you on
You know for sure you will never lose your way
Basking in the beautiful morning suns ray ….
Walk the path … befriend nature and dare
To accept the experiences, it’s ready to share
Live this moment, do not leave it for another day
awaiting when the sun shall shine this glorious way …
Cos Life is so much like this unknown path my friend
Make the journey as the sunshine around the bend
Trust yourself to be all you can be
And perhaps, its awaiting you … that which you wish to see!

My photo of the day! Blooming in my terrace garden…
Roses have a beauty of their own
Colours contrasting with the green leaves
They blossom and capture hearts
To look at , enticingly fragrant
So delicate and fragile
But in all their vulnerability
Their charm flows in abundance
Always a sight to behold
For a Life so short lived!
Such is the wonder of life and living!
Amazing nature! Amazing beauty!
Teaching us it is not the length of time we live , but in how best we can live the time we have!
