Childhood Memories

The Daily Post: The Transporter : Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

Wondering who is our transporter? SEE the photographs of our child below. Sense the TOUCH of those tiny fingers. LISTEN to that music- a lullaby! Ah! There’s nothing like a BABY SMELL. Feel the sensation- the TASTE of Childhood Memories for a short duration. 🙂

Q. 1 What was the last time you went to a new place?

Answer.

A place need not be necessarily new;

We could find something new in old places too!

This is what we generally do,

Explore and discover the new,

And feel delighted to share it with you! 

Q. 2 If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels, other?  And what type of genre would you prefer?

Answer.

We know how to write,

Yes, we are writers;

Short stories, poems or novels;

We’d like to share our experience,

In the simplest way possible. 

Q. 3. Out of your five senses (touch, taste, sight, smell, hearing) which is your favorite?

Answer.

One is incomplete without the other!

We see everything around us,

Develop a sense of taste for what we see,

Bitter, salty, sour or sweet,

A touch of words make it lively;

We love to hear from you without measure,

The smell of your presence gives us immense pleasure. 

Q. 4 If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

Answer.

Our life is our own,

Yes, we are satisfied;

Their journey is unknown,

Is our answer justified? 🙂

Proud of Me

In response to The Daily Post: Proud

IMG_0150

I may be small, but I stand tall,

Without me, the beauty would fall;

This is how I’m made,

No matter if others hate;

I’m here for a reason,

Earth is my home, not a prison;

 I can stand against the wind and the rain,

Even if I fall, I can rise again;

I’m food for the honey bee;

No regrets, I’m proud of me.

Yes! Thanks!

The Daily Post: No,Thanks? Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?

Why talk about what we don’t wish to do?

Let’s talk about what we wish to do,

And where we wish to go!

Let us allow good to flourish,

Think positive and cherish;

Let us dream good and feel good.

Everything happens for a reason,

Let us embrace every season;

Heaven or Hell is part of literature,

It’s alright to not know all answers,

Life is a gift of countless mixture.

Size Relationships

This is in response to The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale. No matter what the size, it’s all about relativity. A skyscraper looks tiny in relation to the vast sky; the sky visible to us is tiny in relation to the universe! Appreciate everything despite the size. Enjoy!

Breaking the Law

In response to The Daily Post: Breaking the Law. This photograph was taken in 2009, when our son was three years old. He was experimenting with talcum powder, which for him was snow! 🙂

IMG_1179

Had there been no rule or law,

We’d have looked at this world with awe;

There’s so much to learn and grow,

We wish to go steady and slow.

Many a times we broke the law;

Never worried who saw;

It’s our life, we’ve to live,

We make mistakes, God forgive.

We’re happy, never regret,

What we did, we wished to get;

Our motto: Break any law in a lifespan,

But never forget  to be human.

Mural- The Ajanta Caves

We probably would not have thought about sharing these photographs, had we not come across the Challenge: A Word a Week Photograph Challenge-Mural hosted by suellewellyn.

Last year 2014, we were blessed with the opportunity to visit a historical place- Aurangabad. This place is well known for the world famous Ajanta and Ellora Caves. Below we share few photographs of Ajanta Caves- excavated in horse-shoe shape and the finest surviving example of Indian art particularly paintings. This group of caves dates back to the pre-Christian era and is inscribed by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Monument in the year 1983. There are a total of 30 caves, but the exemplary painting could be noticed only in caves 1, 2, 16 and 17. This is a place worth visiting!

Enjoy as you surrender yourself to the past. 🙂

The ceilings are painted with geometrical, floral and faunal depictions that create an impression of a decorative shamiyana held above. The painting contains some of the finest circle designs drawn in contrasting colors, which still retain their brightness and lustre. The walls are painted with countless figures of Lord Buddha with illustrations of the former births of Lord Buddha known as Jatakas. The caves contain some of the masterpieces of the world of painting Padmapani and Vajrapani.

Know our world JPEG

Q. 1 Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?

Answer. Why not both? Go to a park, then shop and come back. 😉

Q. 2 If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

Answer.  One that fits no one! That, which can be used as a show piece for decoration at home. Why? We don’t wish to get soiled, but admired and handled with love and care. We don’t wish to get replaced in the long run. 😀

Q. 3 What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?

Answer. Locked out? Not a big deal. Break the lock! 🙂

Q. 4 Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? 

Answer. Not old enough to dislike nuts. 😀

Q. 5 Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Answer. Oxygen and Carbon dioxide for our survival so that we can exist in WordPress. 🙂

Morton’s Fork?

Good Bye

Morton’s Fork is an expression used for a dilemma, especially one in which both choices are equally undesirable. A Morton’s Fork is a specious piece of reasoning in which contradictory arguments lead to the same (unpleasant) conclusion. It is said to originate with the collecting of taxes by John Morton, Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 15th century, who held that a man living modestly must be saving money and could therefore afford taxes, whereas if he was living extravagantly then he was obviously rich and could still afford them. 

So, who is playing Morton here? WordPress?

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

Either way, we are the victim. If we were not able to write our blog, why would we even think of being here? On the contrary, why would anybody care to read our blog, if we do not play their audience. Guess what? It’s a Good Bye!

Human beings are balanced creatures. They need small doses of everything- good and bad, happy and sad, day and night, summer and winter, spring and autumn, love and hate, oxygen and carbon dioxide too! If we have the capacity to read and/or listen, we also keep the desire to write and/or express.
