All the above pictures are taken in various parts of Kashmir. Sadly, Kashmir is going through a very difficult time. But, the time will pass. Even though terror might seem powerful, its hold is momentary; love, on the other hand, reigns forever.
These are the blossoms from the mango tree in the compound. The whole year, I wait for the tree to bloom. It signifies the start of spring and the mango season for me. 🙂
Every year, spring brings us fresh blooms. The happy trees dance in the breeze flaunting their flowers. Some buds blossom into beautiful flowers; others grow further to turn into a fruit. Just as the blossoms, it is our duty to reach our fullest potential. Don’t give up on yourself. Start afresh like the tree which sheds its leaves in the autumn to start fresh in the spring.
Today is new year is most parts of India. The first day of the year is known as Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra, and Yugadi in Karnataka. May this new year bring lots of love, and joy in your life.
