The Interview

Daily Post: The Interview: Interview your favorite fictional character.


Sia Positive is a fictional character in WordPress. The thoughts and ideas expressed are unique in some form or the other that try to view the world from a different angle. The reality is that we are never free from fear and negative thoughts. Its not a double standard or dual personality but Sia Positive is indeed the character we try to play everyday.

We bring to you an exclusive interview with Sia Positive. (The questions are selected questions from Share Your World 2015 hosted by Cee’s Photography). Guess this is the first step to knowing the secret to Sia Positve’s glaring personality. 😉

WordPress ShowBiz: Hello Sia Positive! Welcome to WordPress ShowBiz. Thank you for sparing some time from your “Never Busy but Never Idle” schedule. We are very pleased to have you among us today. The blogging world has been waiting for quite a long time for you to reveal the secret of your unique personality.

Sia Positive: Our pleasure. 🙂

WPSB: Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

SP: Growing up is part of learning, we admit it!

Small town or big, we lived our life and we liked it!

WPSB:  Where did you live at age five?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

SP: Five is a number so tender; the life of an offender, defender and pretender;

      None other than parents we did surrender. 

      Now is the time to look around; go ahead and take that stride; 

      Near or far, to follow our dreams, we plan to travel worldwide.

WPSB: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

SP: This is simple. An adult!

WPSB: What are you a “natural” at doing?

SP: Dreaming 😀

WPSB: What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

SP: Do whatever you want to do! 🙂

WPSB: Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

SP: We’re crazy travelers and passionate photographers;

       Sorry to say dear bloggers, we’re not huggers. 🙂

WPSB: Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

SP: Body and mind are the jewels of mankind; face, heart and soul makes a man refined;

      Exercise them daily, very skillfully; they are the five aspects of harmony.

WPSB: If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

SP: Ability to wake up every morning with quality of our choice! 😀

WPSB: If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

SP: 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. 😀 

(Note: We are passionate travelers though, but would never wish to be used by anyone so. 🙂 )

WPSB: What was the last time you went to a new place?

SP: 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! 

WPSB: 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?

SP: 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. 

WPSB: Out of your five senses (touch, taste, sight, smell, hearing) which is your favorite?

SP: 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. 

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

SP: Our life is our own,

       Yes, we are satisfied;

       Their journey is unknown,

       Is our answer justified? 🙂

WPSB: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

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

WPSB: Thank you very much Sia Positive. We had a great time trying to dig out the secrets of your fictional world.

SP: Thank you very much WordPress for giving us this opportunity to bring our fictional character into the limelight. 🙂

Beauty and Blur

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur IMG_2136

Quite often, images that are not taken intentionally can also produce beautiful effects. This photograph was taken with the purpose of a blurred background. But the absence of light on the focused image somehow created a completely blurred photograph which we found very much suitable for the current challenge. 🙂

Album of Love

Daily Post: I Want To Know What is Love

We each have many types of love relationships — parents, children, spouses, friends. And they’re not always with people; you may love an animal, or a place. Is there a single idea or definition that runs through all the varieties of “love”?

Love album

Love is no idea to be defined

Love is a flow of emotions refined

Love knows no condition

Love is a  wonderful expedition

Love is not false or true

Love is a string between souls two

Love is not an illusion

Love is a chemical fusion

Love without expectation

Love is boundless adaptation

Love needs no sacrifice

Love craves to satisfy

Love is an ultimate desire

Love will make you fly higher and higher.

Parents, children, spouse or friends

Just keep loving till the end

Person, place animal or thing

Love one and love all but never cling

An unmatched beauty so sublime

Love creates a music as melodious as the chime.

Ultimate Reward

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

…and we are back! On a funny note, our blog looks prehistoric after a long gap of two weeks. However, WordPress never disappoints its bloggers. So, here we are back again with our crazy and thoughtful delights for our fellow bloggers. 🙂


Call it a coincidence or a creative expression, without a second thought, we decided to share our Reward with our fellow bloggers. On 17th February, 2015, we set off on an unplanned journey which was infact a dream come true. We experienced snowfall. The most awesome part of our journey was driving through the snowstorm. The memories are relived as we sit to share the wonderful experience with you. Since it was our very first experience, there were mixed feelings of joy, wonder and fear. Somehow, we managed to take few snaps.

So, here it is! Enjoy the journey as much as we enjoyed it. 🙂

Snowstorms are storms where large amounts of snow fall. Two inches (5 cm) of snow is enough to create serious disruptions to traffic. Key to driving in snowstorm is to avoid using brakes and drive slow. Otherwise the vehicle would skid. Driving through the snowstorm was awesome. Thanks to the Almighty for a safe journey.

Gift of Love

This is our first Gift of Love, way back in 2004.

The Daily Post: Cupid’s Arrow

Love needs no season

Love finds no reason

Love hears the heart beat

Love carries souls to meet


Love knows no boundaries

Love traverses across countries

Love has power to deceive enemies

Love creates countless remedies


Love wipes out sorrow and pain

Love makes us dance in the rain

Love tunes the heart to sing

Love transforms autumn to spring


Love is deaf and love is blind

Love defeats the mind

Love propounds the eyes to speak

Love is a language unique

Excellent Symmetry

This photograph was clicked in Sam Desert, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India.

The Daily Post: Symmetry

Symmetry comes from a Greek word meaning ‘to measure together’. Love the way these two kids used their left and right brain in symmetry. 🙂

What a ride!


We happened to cross this biker and was delighted to see him take this cute family on a ride. See the three boxes of chicks! The rooster is indeed the guard. What better way can there be to describe love and affection for ones family?
