Way of Life !

“Do not worry about going fast; you are not in a race. Do not think of going far; you cannot defeat death. Just walk. Enjoy the journey.”     —- Ahmad & Ahmad

This post is part of two challenges: Cee’s which Way Photo Challenge: 2014 #23 and Nurthuring Thursday

In response to the Challenges, we share below few of our photographs that actually describes the Way Of Life!

Here they are:

1. Beautiful

Our life is sometimes beautiful, straight, smooth, supportive (represented by the green tress, if you could not guess that) and with available directions to show us the way to our destination.

 2. Indecisive

In many instances life puts us in a situation where we are not sure which way to go; whom to follow, whom not to follow. The choice is ultimately ours! 

 3. Twists and turns

Sometimes our life changes its direction as we climb up the path of growth. This is seen through the changes we undergo, in our thoughts, behaviour and way of living as we cross childhood, adulthood and old age.

 4. Challenge

Our life offers us many hurdles. These hurdles may be in the form of depression, rejection, fear or failure. It is up to us if we wish to go back, wait or go ahead and face the challenges. 

 5. Struggle

Life is not always smooth. (represented by the gravels on the road). Though we know the way, it demands hard work and patience as we move ahead. 

 6. Unsolved Mystery

Finally, life is an unsolved mystery. However smooth or straight the way is, or far it may stretch, after a point it goes out of view. To relate, we are heading towards infinity, towards the unknown!  

How would you describe your way of life?

An Extreme Tale

We made it

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens quotes: 

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

There were several instances in our lives too when the above quotation best described our life. The extreme tale between emotion and logic, the tale between appreciation and criticism, the tale between having everything and having nothing which exist even today and has been told and retold since ages.

Here are few of the instances that we tried to recollect from memories of our life span to create this post.

1. Emotion and Logic:

There was this period in our life when we had to take that difficult decision and choose between emotion and logic. While emotions gifted us with the utmost strength to face the harsh realities of a self-realized and self-designed life of blissfulness; logic on the other hand tried to guide us to a known world where everything seemed to be absolutely perfect or at least were destined to be perfect. On the contrary, if logic helped us choose the partner of our choice, emotion reminded us of our responsibilities. That was the best of times for us as we were extremely excited to dream our future together. But again that was the worst of times for us because we had to choose between ‘people we love’ and the ‘person we love’.

2. Appreciation and Criticism: 

Yet another period in our life when we were caught between appreciation and criticism that resulted into yet another extreme of acceptance and rejection. While our hard work and efforts were recognized and appreciated, every minute detail of our success landed us into criticism. It was like being sent to the top to be pushed down to the bottom. While trying to scramble between appreciation and criticism, we were introduced to a new world of stress that left us juggling between acceptance and rejection. Accepting life as it comes or rejecting the situation and fight back. Everything seemed to be in a network, leaving us bewildered. While stress left us with sour memories, it also opened the door to new opportunities. That was the time when we realized our new love for writing and discovered WordPress. That was the worst of times but it has also been the best of times.

3. Having everything and Having nothing:

For whatever reason; knowingly or unknowingly, we found ourselves lost in life’s philosophy. It was like a turning point. It was like going back after travelling half way in the cycle of life; going back to where we came from. It is the period of realizing new dreams and aspirations, where we are all set to face an entirely different world where dreams could turn into reality and where we develop the craze to create our own path. The tussle between having everything and realizing that we actually do not possess anything further enunciates the pleasure of contentment and at the same time leaving us with a heart filled with unfulfilled desires. This is the period when we tend to question our existence and at the same time desire to live life to the hearts’ content. This is the period when heaven and hell coexist. This has shown us the best of times and also the worst of times.

Though difficult, life moves on and so did we. Life is not a competition. It is all about living, not winning. Find the good in the bad while accepting the bad in the good. Faith and hope finally helped us make the two extremes meet and it is the combination of both the extremes that actually completes the life-cycle

Lost in space

Since childhood we have been hearing about meteorite attacks on mother earth. The thought of a huge rock hitting the surface of the earth with immense impact always left us with an awesome feeling and multitude of questions wandering in our minds. The thought of space always left us spell bounded with a hope to travel to space sometime and experience the darkness; before bidding farewell to mother earth.

Whenever we plan for a holiday we usually try to cover those areas less covered by tourists. With an adventurous spirit and the mind of an explorer, we started to Google for amazing and strange places in India. And lo and behold- we found one! The Lonar Crater!

Crater? Are we dreaming? A crater in India? Does it really exist? We were curious. The curiosity and the childhood dream dragged us to Lonar crater.

As we sit to pen down our experience, we are not sure if you are wondering or just thinking- what is the big deal? It is just a crater. Indeed. The cab driver also responded in a similar way. He said, “There is nothing to see in Lonar Crater. It is just a large and deep hole, (about 150 metres deep and approx. 1.8 km in diameter !) on earth with water at the bottom.”

But as we already did some homework before the visit we were destined to go. We were excited to take a close look at this ‘hole on earth with water at the bottom’.

We started off early morning at 6:30 am ready for the 160 km drive from Aurangabad in Maharashtra, India, to see the wonder created on earth by space. Finally we were there! Though we could not make to the dark space above our head, this was as close as being lost in space.

We stood speechless and wondered how the asteroid must have hit the earth! What could have been the impact?

Honestly this feeling cannot be expressed in words.

We provide below few pictures of Lonar crater and give you few moments of silence to feel the impact of this huge event.

Lonar Crater in Buldhana District of Maharashtra, India is the world’s third most impressive impact crater formed more than 50000 years ago when a 2 million tonne meteorite impacted the earth. The Lonar lake’s salinity is 10.5 times that of sea water making it difficult for any species to survive. Yet scientists have found various living organisms here.

India’s Lonar Crater began causing confusion soon after it was identified in 1823 by a British officer named C.J.E. Alexander. Lonar Crater sits inside the Deccan Plateau—a massive plain of volcanic basalt rock leftover from eruptions some 65 million years ago. Its location in this basalt field suggested to some geologists that it was a volcanic crater. Today, however, Lonar Crater is understood to result from a meteorite impact that occurred between 35,000 and 50,000 years ago.

The Tussle between Venus and Mars

Women and Men are both marvelous and inspiring creations of the Unseen Creator. They are different: yet meant to be together. They are opposite: yet they attract each other!

Men and women

We have been together for the last ten years (by grace of the Almighty). We happened to bump into each other’s life out of the blue and decided to take the ride through the ups and downs of the most heard of ‘conjugal life’. We learnt! And learnt a lot! We are still learning!

Though a decade of this relationship is not something to be very proud of, yet, it has been the most enjoyable years in our personal lives. We have fought. We have survived! We have cried. We have lived together through thick and thin.  This is our life lived with a soul mate. We are not a perfect couple because perfection is the end! The best is always the best and we still have a long way to go. We are still wondering what would keep us moving. What are the ingredients of a happy married life?

Marriage is not an agreement. It is not an institution either. There is more to this relationship. Narrow down the definition and we narrow down the bond. Broaden the base and it will hold countless aspirations.

Marriage is an ocean of love that creates life. There is no sympathy in marriage. Sympathy is shown to the needy. It is not meant for couples. Couples go together. We need not sacrifice anything to be together. What we need is “the ability to understand and share the feelings of the other”. It is love and love alone that shelters this bond, and empathy is the driving force.

Over a span of these ten years we realised ‘the beauty’ of this relationship. It is an ‘accept and reflect’ relationship. Accept that we are different and reflect how opposites attract!

We came across this short narration in The Editors Journal that clearly describes the difference between a man and a woman. 

Hope you will love it as much as we loved reading it.

Let’s say a guy named Fred is attracted to a woman named Martha. He asks her out to a movie; she accepts; they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else.

And then, one evening…

when they’re driving home, a thought occurs to Martha, and, without really thinking, she says it aloud: “Do you realize that, as of tonight, we’ve been seeing each other for exactly six months?”

And then, there is silence in the car.To Martha, it seems like a very loud silence. She thinks to herself: I wonder if it bothers him that I said that. Maybe he’s been feeling confined by our relationship; maybe he thinks I’m trying to push him into some kind of obligation that he doesn’t want, or isn’t sure of.

And Fred is thinking: Gosh. Six months.

And Martha is thinking: But, hey, I’m not so sure I want this kind of relationship either. Sometimes I wish I had a little more space, so I’d have time to think about whether I really want us to keep going the way we are, moving steadily towards, I mean, where are we going? Are we just going to keep seeing each other at this level of intimacy? Are we heading toward marriage? Toward children? Toward a lifetime together? Am I ready for that level of commitment? Do I really even know this person?

And Fred is thinking: …so that means it was…let’s see…February when we started going out, which was right after I had the car at the dealer’s, which means…lemme check the odometer…Whoa! I am way overdue for an oil change here.

And Martha is thinking: He’s upset. I can see it on his face. Maybe I’m reading this completely wrong. Maybe he wants more from our relationship, more intimacy, more commitment; maybe he has sensed – even before I sensed it – that I was feeling some reservations. Yes, I bet that’s it. That’s why he’s so reluctant to say anything about his own feelings. He’s afraid of being rejected.

And Fred is thinking: And I’m gonna have them look at the transmission again. I don’t care what those morons say, it’s still not shifting right. And they better not try to blame it on the cold weather this time. What cold weather? It’s 87 degrees out, and this thing is shifting like a garbage truck, and I paid those incompetent thieves $600.

And Martha is thinking: He’s angry. And I don’t blame him. I’d be angry, too. I feel so guilty, putting him through this, but I can’t help the way I feel. I’m just not sure.

And Fred is thinking: They’ll probably say it’s only a 90-day warranty…scumballs.

And Martha is thinking: Maybe I’m just too idealistic, waiting for a knight to come riding up on his white horse, when I’m sitting right next to a perfectly good person, a person I enjoy being with, a person I truly do care about, a person who seems to truly care about me. A person who is in pain because of my self-centered, schoolgirl romantic fantasy.

And Fred is thinking: Warranty? They want a warranty? I’ll give them a warranty. I’ll take their warranty and stick it right up their…

“Fred,” Martha says aloud.

What?” says Fred, startled.

“Please don’t torture yourself like this,” she says, her eyes beginning to brim with tears. “Maybe I should never have…oh dear, I feel so…”(She breaks down, sobbing.)

“What?” says Fred.

“I’m such a fool,” Martha sobs. “I mean, I know there’s no knight. I really know that. It’s silly. There’s no knight, and there’s no horse.”

“There’s no horse?” says Fred.

“You think I’m a fool, don’t you?” Martha says.

“No!” says Fred, glad to finally know the correct answer.

“It’s just that…it’s that I…I need some time,” Martha says.

(There is a 15-second pause while Fred, thinking as fast as he can, tries to come up with a safe response. Finally he comes up with one that he thinks might work.)

“Yes,” he says. (Martha, deeply moved, touches his hand.)

“Oh, Fred, do you really feel that way?” she says.

“What way?” says Fred.

“That way about time,” says Martha.

“Oh,” says Fred. “Yes.” (Martha turns to face him and gazes deeply into his eyes, causing him to become very nervous about what she might say next, especially if it involves a horse. At last she speaks.)

“Thank you, Fred,” she says.

“Thank you,” says Fred.

Then he takes her home, and she lies on her bed, a conflicted, tortured soul, and weeps until dawn, whereas when Fred gets back to his place, he opens a bag of Doritos, turns on the TV, and immediately becomes deeply involved in a rerun of a college basketball game between two South Dakota junior colleges that he has never heard of. A tiny voice in the far recesses of his mind tells him that something major was going on back there in the car, but he is pretty sure there is no way he would ever understand what, and so he figures it’s better if he doesn’t think about it.

The next day Martha will call her closest friend, or perhaps two of them, and they will talk about this situation for six straight hours. In painstaking detail, they will analyze everything she said and everything he said, going over it time and time again, exploring every word, expression, and gesture for nuances of meaning, considering every possible ramification.

They will continue to discuss this subject, off and on, for weeks, maybe months, never reaching any definite conclusions, but never getting bored with it either.

Meanwhile, Fred, while playing racquetball one day with a mutual friend of his and Martha’s, will pause just before serving, frown, and say: “Norm, did Martha ever own a horse?”

The above narrative inspired us to pop up with the story of our own life. We were lost in the conversation. This is exactly what we encounter in regular intervals in our own life. How about you?

Now the question is: We all agree to this fact, don’t we? Then why do we not agree to go that extra mile to accept this difference in our real life? Is it so difficult to crack this puzzle? Is it so difficult to embrace this difference? What do you think?

From Pangaea to Laurasia then Eurasia and Back!

A photo that tells us what ‘FRAY’ means. We could not find any better example to explain this word!

Our planet Earth
Our planet Earth in motion since ages

The animation above is an example to show what the word ‘FRAY’ means to us. We have presented a small description of how our Earth faced her wear and tear, and which even now is on the move, and how it is expected to unravel. If the story interests you, you can visit the links provided along with.

Pangaea or Pangea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras. It formed approximately 300 million years ago and then began to break apart after about 100 million years. Pangaea was the first reconstructed supercontinent and its global ocean was accordingly named Panthalassa.

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangaea)

Pangaea
The blue Ocean surrounding Pangaea is Panthalassa

Panthalassa, also known as the Panthalassic Ocean, was the vast global ocean that surrounded the supercontinent Pangaea, during the late Paleozoic and the early Mesozoic eras. It included the Pacific Ocean to the west and north and the Tethys to the southeast. It became the Pacific Ocean, following the closing of the Tethys basin and the breakup of Pangaea, which created the Atlantic, Arctic, and Indian Ocean basins. The Panthalassic is often called the Paleo-Pacific (“old Pacific”) because the Pacific Ocean developed from it in the Mesozoic to the Present.

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panthalassa)

There were three major phases in the break-up of Pangaea. The first phase began in the Early-Middle Jurassic (about 175 Ma), when Pangaea began to rift from the Tethys Ocean in the east to the Pacific in the west, ultimately giving rise to the supercontinents Laurasia and Gondwana. The rifting that took place between North America and Africa produced multiple failed rifts. One rift resulted in a new ocean, the North Atlantic Ocean.

The second major phase in the break-up of Pangaea began in the Early Cretaceous (150–140 Ma), when the minor supercontinent of Gondwana separated into multiple continents (Africa, South America, India, Antarctica, and Australia). About 200 Ma, the continent of Cimmeria, as mentioned above (see “Formation of Pangaea”), collided with Eurasia. However, a subduction zone was forming, as soon as Cimmeria collided.

The third major and final phase of the break-up of Pangaea occurred in the early Cenozoic (Paleocene to Oligocene). Laurasia split when North America/Greenland (also called Laurentia) broke free from Eurasia, opening the Norwegian Sea about 60–55 Ma. The Atlantic and Indian Oceans continued to expand, closing the Tethys Ocean.

Eurasia is the combined continental landmass of Europe and Asia, with the term being a portmanteau of its two constituents. Located primarily in the Northern and Eastern Hemispheres, it is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Arctic Ocean on the north, and by Africa, the Mediterranean Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean to the south.The division between Europe and Asia as two different continents is a historical and cultural construct, with no clear physical separation between them; thus, in some parts of the world, Eurasia is recognized as the largest of five or six continents.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasia

Pangaea Ultima (also called Pangaea ProximaNeopangaea, and Pangaea II) is a possible future supercontinent configuration. Consistent with the supercontinent cycle, Pangaea Ultima could occur within the next 250 million years. This potential configuration, hypothesized by Christopher Scotese, earned its name from its similarity to the previous Pangaea supercontinent. The concept was based on examination of past cycles of formation and breakup of supercontinents, not on current understanding of the mechanisms of tectonic change, which are too imprecise to project that far into the future. “It’s all pretty much fantasy to start with”, Scotese has said. “But it’s a fun exercise to think about what might happen. And you can only do it if you have a really clear idea of why things happen in the first place.”

Supercontinents describe the merger of all, or nearly all, of the Earth’s landmass into a single contiguous continent. In the Pangaea Ultima scenario,subduction at the western Atlantic, east of the Americas, leads to the subduction of the Atlantic mid-ocean ridge followed by subduction destroying the Atlantic and Indian basin, causing the Atlantic and Indian Oceans to close, bringing the Americas back together with Africa and Europe. As with most supercontinents, the interior of Pangaea Proxima would probably become a semi-arid desert prone to extreme temperatures.

Thanks to WordPress (the technology in disguise) for taking these small leaps ahead in unraveling the world population back to one platform! High-Five!

Below is another example of FRAY that we found to be unique! Check it out!

The Tunnel from A to O

journey through the tunnel

We’ve been given the ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect our home with the location of our choice — anywhere on Earth. Where’s the other end of our tunnel?

When we came across this Daily Prompt, the first thing that crossed our mind was WOW! Ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect our home with the location of our choice-anywhere on Earth!

But as the strings of our mind started loosening up, we were caught in a dilemma. We’ve the ability to build a tunnel.  Well, tunnels are dark inside. Isn’t it? No fresh air, no natural light.  

We would rather prefer some other way where there is light during the journey to one of our favourite places anywhere on Earth! The journey also has to be a beautiful one. We do have the desire to travel around the world, breathing in all the beauty around. How would the journey to our favourite destination through a tunnel be like? A journey in the dark, full of struggle! Will we be able to do justice to us? 

We decided to select a tunnel with a narrow opening, then use our magical power to build it bigger and bigger so that we can quickly and secretly at the blink of an eye connect it to light at the other end!

And we finally discovered this narrow opening!

Have you noticed the small triangle in the letter ‘A’ in the word HATE? Yes this triangle is our starting point. Our Earth- our home, is surrounded by hate all around. There is darkness in this hatred, because we lose our senses when we hate someone. We forget our existence as a superior animal- a human being.

Luckily there are small magic like WordPress Daily Prompt that knocks the closed door of our mind and encourage us to build bridges to connect one end of the world with the other.

So our work begins. We dig and dig quickly, silently and secretly using our magical power until we reach the other end of the tunnel of HATE. And at the blink of an eye we finally discover the new horizon.  We come out from the small triangle in ‘A’ to a broad opening in letter ‘O’, a new world, where we breathe fresh and free! Notice the letter ‘O’ in LOVE? Yes, we’re in a new place, a new location, LOVE. We are now satisfied that we’ve used our magical power to get to something better, where there is light all around. 

We made it! What do you think? 🙂

The Incredible Journey with WordPress!

The Incredible Journey
The Incredible Journey

It was just last month (July 2014) that we began our journey with WordPress. And so far we have had a wonderful journey and we will definitely keep taking wonderful rides with our fellow bloggers. The ride through the depths of nature, through the intense feelings of happiness and sorrow of fellow bloggers, through the ups and downs we faced here, learning how to operate the many features of WordPress, all were marvellous and exciting. We initiated and WordPress kept us moving! We are just like the thin line of road visible in huge mountains. The mountain is the vast world and the thin line represent the niche we have struggled to create for ourselves in this world. 

Thank You ‘The Daily Post’ for the innumerable fascinating, out of the box topics on ‘Daily Prompts’ http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/ and the untiring efforts of the whole team to help us develop our writing skill. Though we missed out many, we particularly enjoyed scratching our head on some of them. It was difficult because we felt they were not mere topics but ‘topics with a difference’!

We started our journey with ‘The Daily Post’ with ‘Back to Life’, https://siapositive.wordpress.com/2014/07/30/back-to-life/.

The most recent one ‘A Bookish Choice’ https://siapositive.wordpress.com/2014/08/12/no-thank-you-literary-witch/ was the best one so far, where we discovered some hidden aspects that we, as writers,  need to reflect on certain issues instead of plainly jotting down words here and there. 

‘Second Opinion’ https://siapositive.wordpress.com/2014/08/10/no-second-opinion/ also helped us bring out to the limelight, the ‘Real We’. It was a remarkable post to discover some truths about us (the human soul).

Not to forget, ‘Not Lemonade’ https://siapositive.wordpress.com/2014/08/09/taste-the-lemons/ was just right to put forward our perspective towards life! 

WordPress is a great place to learn and meet new people with varied background and thought process. It is a tremendous platform to keep wandering around trying to look for the ultimate truth of our existence. We have tried to make our expressions just simple and excellent (Perfection is God’s business) to reach out to millions who look forward to new dimensions to lead a fruitful life. 

We write for self satisfaction. Writing is our passion. We write to capture our memorable thoughts and crazy ideas passing by our mind. We write because we feel the emotions. We indeed look for appreciation because we are humans and we are here because the world exists. The white star with orange background do excite us just like any of our fellow bloggers! But even if not appreciated we tend to write more with extended zest and zeal. Because this is what keeps us moving! And WordPress never disappoints its audience.

We take this opportunity to thank WordPress for this wonderful and persistent effort to help us express and share our thoughts and reach out to millions of diverse and unique audience. We take this opportunity to thank all our readers and visitors. If you have enjoyed the ride with us so far, it is our honour. We have as much enjoyed the ride with you, your unique ways of presentations, your unique pictures and your unique perspectives.

And for those who have not enjoyed the ride with us, we take it as a challenge! There can not be everything about someone that we do not like. There can not be everything about everyone that we like. But there are certain things about all that we may like. So thank you all! 🙂

It has been an incredible journey.

No Thank You, Literary Witch.

Keep writing and spread the message of hard work and sincerity.
Keep writing and spread the message of hard work, honesty and sincerity.

 A literary- minded witch gives us a choice: with the flick of the wand. We can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions.

We choose NONE! No MAGIC! No short-cuts! No greed! Though literary-minded, the witch will definitely have some form of evil in mind. Absolutely discarded! If writers begin to spread EVIL, where would this world head to? Words have the power to transform a world. We do not need any evil magic wand to gain admiration or popularity. What we desire is a beautiful world abundant with love, peace and harmony.

Whatever we are/will be writing would be the words coming directly from our heart, the hidden truths which we have been trying to explore and understand, and share with millions of people.

Sorry to disappoint you literary witch. 🙂
