Leaving the stage is not a weakness. Just a matter of a season we meet again.


मेरी कमजोरी पे हसने 

से न कुछ हासिल होगा। 

मेरे जाने में और लौट के आने में,

बस एक मौसम का ही फ़ासला है। 


Last week went by so fast

I am showcasing some perfect moments in my imperfect life. Last week was dedicated to preparations and presentations besides travelling. At times we pour our heart to fulfill a task but at the end we are not satisfied with our own efforts. Let our dissatisfaction be positive and let it motivates us to turn a dream into reality.

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure. Paulo Coelho

I didn’t manage a single walk in the last week and photo walks were quite out of question. I know it sounds funny but the weather didn’t help either. The images in the post were taken while travelling.

Our well being

depends on

how, when and where

we devote our time.




आप सभी को नवरात्री की शुभकामनाएं 

नवरात्री के इन नौ दिनों में देवी और देवी के रूप की चर्चा है।  मेरी कुछ पंक्तियाँ

देवी कौन  है

सीता एक स्त्री थी। 

दौपदी एक स्त्री थी। 

अहिल्या एक स्त्री थी। 

मेरी सास एक स्त्री थीं । 

मेरी माँ एक स्त्री हैं। 

पढ़ने वाली आप और लिखने वाली मैं एक स्त्री हूँ। 

धरती भी एक स्त्री है। 

सबसे जुड़ी हुई,

सबको जोड़े हुए। 

ये धरा है, तो हम हैं। 

हमारा अस्तित्व इस धरा से जुड़ा है। 

देवी कौन है, धरा ही देवी है। 

धरा ही दुर्गा, लक्ष्मी और सरस्वती है।

Witnessing Autumn

Today was one of the best days to observe the gradual “changing of the guard colours” in the vicinity. A day off would have been good but 2 hours break in the middle of the day was also a blessing. We took a walk looking for the first beautiful leaf then the next and the next.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lao Tzu 

Search begins at home

We all live amidst various kinds of responsibilities or pressures. Some of our choices and some which are thrust upon us. Do you remember a lesson in physics on electric circuits, series and parallel? It’s better to have parallel circuits in real life. It would be impossible to live a happy and contended life if all events in our lives are connected in series. To cut the story short, we decided to go out and enjoy our “we time” in nature in spite of our current circumstances. You may find it strange but we plan and change our activities according to the weather forecast 😀

Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.~ Thich Nhat Hanh

We are happy and satisfied today. Hope you enjoy your day too.

Dawn’s Festival of leaves

Celebrating Autumn

22nd September marks the beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. I am joining Dawn’s “festival of leaves“.


Warning – This image was taken in the past. Right now we are in our default weather mode. BUT we hope for bright autumn days in the coming weeks 😁


सुन ले बातें उनकी ग़ौर से,

पर रश्क न कर। 

हक़ीक़त कुछ और है,

वो बयाँ कुछ और किये जाते हैं। 



My photography

is still in

it’s primitive form.

I am still not there.

I try and try.

To learn about

the perfect angle,

the perfect light


the perfect composition.

Till then

what we see

is just a prototype.
