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. ūüôā

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!

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. ūüôā

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.

Don’t Impress! Express!

Below are some of the photographs we thought of sharing with our fellow bloggers. Check what they have to express!

This is a challenge before us, to show what “express yourself” mean to us. This post is in response to The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Express Yourself.

We love to capture different moments in our life and find it exciting to express our thoughts through these random clicks. We made an attempt to express our journey of life through these photographs. So, fasten your seat belts and enjoy this journey through our head and heart ! ūüôā

1. Hunt for truth:

The oar as seen immersed in water has something to say!

Clicked while we enjoyed boating in Nainital, Uttarakhand, India

Do not believe what you hear, do not believe what you see,

A smile on your face may not mean you’re free;

The actions we take are the reactions we face,

Do not judge, the truth lies beneath;

This is what we believe.

2. Surprises matter

IMG_1254

Life is full of surprises, good or bad;

Never stop learning, happy or sad.

3. Solve problems

When faced with problems, do not complain;

Look for alternative solutions, take a concrete decision.

4. Plan with open mind

IMG_0977
Lonar Crater, Maharashtra, India

Dream and plan with an open mind,

Follow the step you’ve designed;

If plans begin to fail, do not sigh;

The open mind will help you to fly! 

5. Mould to fit

Millipede

Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery;

Mould to fit today, shape your destiny.

6. Adventure calling

IMG_1363
A village women cutting down branches to be used as fuel for cooking

Up and down, far or near;

Live your dreams, don’t you fear.

7. Free- flowing

IMG_0984

Life is not a race, reflect and see,

Be good, humanity is the key;

Among the masses you may be known,

But it takes everything to stand alone.

8. Emotional

IMG_1698

One, two, three, four, five;

Ready to taste the flavors of life.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten;

Here and there we fall, but rise again.

Walk to Remember

This photograph was taken during our trek at Lonar Crater, India.

“Follow us, but we may not lead you;

Lead us, but we may not follow you;

Walk beside us, you’ll always find us with you.”

Which Way!!

IMG_2004

This is the road we traveled on our way to Munsyari, Uttarakhand, India. This route to the beautiful Hill city is less traveled and not recommended for tourists. However, for crazy travelers like us, it is a challenge! The photograph was taken after we crossed this particular landslide point and we were startled when we could not actually see which way we traveled!

A New Day

IMG_4532
A sunrise behind Sam Desert, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India.

Everyday is a new day,

A new beginning that tries to say;

Be as happy as you can be,

Be the change you want to see;

Keep it simple, keep it clean,

Live the life that you always dream;

Where there is a will, there is a way,

Be thankful to the Lord while you pray.

Be the change

The Daily Post: Be the change
What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in this world? 

Change is something inevitable. And those who adapt to the changes survive. This has been the rule of this world since ages. However, change cannot and should not be imposed on anyone. Different situations and circumstances demand different rules.

Talking of this world and its people, a change is brought about by someone who thinks different. And those who think different will either be followed or criticised. Had we the power to change this world, we probably would not have been blogging here. We do not blog to bring about any change.

Yes, we have followers here in WordPress. They are our followers by their choice. They are those who probably like and enjoy our posts or get lost in the photographs we share. We love our followers because that gives us a sense of satisfaction, that we exist. This is a platform where we can be what we are- eccentric, stupid, crazy!

We are just like anyone else living in this world, with innumerable imperfections.  We make mistakes and learn from our mistakes. We are here to share our life; the good and even the bad, but trying as we do, to add a touch of positive vibe to make life look as simple as possible. We are one among those, struggling to create a life comfortable and suitable to live. We are here to make us feel good. We are glad to be part of the blogging community, learning everyday as we share our posts.

We are not here to change this world through our blog.  We are here to change us and be the change.
