The changing walls of Thane

Wall-e-art

The dull walls of Thane have become vibrant, and lively. The new TMC initiative “Paint walls, beautify city” has brought together artists to paint murals depicting nature, history, and culture on the walls of the city. The beautiful murals around the city walls have added a much-needed artistic touch to the bland concrete jungle. Continue reading The changing walls of Thane

Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish.

Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

Haiku

Haiku --waves

euphoric dancing

waves play tag with the seashore—

the rhythm of being

After writing poems during my school years, I had totally given up poetry. So, few of you might be wondering about my sudden change of heart. It’s the summer. The heat is becoming unbearable. And it’s just April. I don’t even want to think of May.

I’ve heard that attempting something you’ve never done before can cheer you up. So, here’s my first Haiku. It’s on my favourite topic—the sea. I’ll be happy if you offered honest criticism. Be blunt; you won’t offend me easily. 🙂

**Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry which captures an image of nature, or a feeling. A traditional haiku consists of 17 onor (Japanese sound unit)in 3 lines. It’s English counterpart consists of 17 syllables in three lines—five in first and third, and seven in second.

Vibrant lights

“Where glowing embers through the room Teach light to counterfeit a gloom”

-John Milton

Okay, so these aren’t actually glowing ambers, but these did add to the cheer. We reached Udupi right during the festivities at Shri Krishna Math. A big tent was built to hold the cultural activities, and the roof was decorated with the above string of lights. These lovely lights  delighted me as much as the rest of the celebration.

Forces of nature

dark clouds

I love the dark clouds. Yes, the same one in which people look for a silver lining. You know why? Because, the dark clouds bring us rain. The azure sky with fluffy clouds might look bright, but the dark clouds are the one who sustain life.
