The intellect



The beauty, the love, the admiring gaze,

Is it not just fleeting?
I sit not just superficial

So what then are the depth and the true depth of things?

WSo what then are the depth and the true depth of things?

We say animals are lesser being,  what are they to do but be superficial, if they have no intellect
As we say they attract their mate through the dance they do, the preening they do .

Well are we humans any different, how do we attract out mate?

Then what’s the The beauty, the love, the admiring gaze,

Is it not just fleeting?
Is it not just superficial ?
intellect doing,
Are we not taught to ask if the other is going to be a long time prospective lamb to be slaughtered when the time is right, he / she has enough money to see us through our lifetime ?

Amazing at 80, and getting younger is Mom


How is it even Possible

My mom is 80 +
She is up at 6 no matter what and is reading something all the time,
Newspaper, storybook, and yes she does write.

She is never sitting doing nothing,



When she is not doing something like cooking or chopping she is watching TV and can have a full on discussion on cricket and performances about players and records and in form, players and there statistics,  
And so is she knowledgeable about Indian idol, dance shows n so on

She is never lounging or doing nothing, she is never rushed, the food is always ready on time her time management is amazing, 

As the day starts, come morning she’s ready to cook breakfast, if I m too lazy to get out of bed, she will go to the market herself and pick up supplies and not a word of complain in action or words.

Now that she has a smart phone, I have to run scared as I find myself being shared on Social media “ images by my mom of me “, and here I thought I was the photographer in the family.

Hats off to you Mom, you can easily put me to shame with your energy and zeal for life so much to learn from you still.
 An house back she asked for the Wi - Fi password and is online right now, she is watching you tube videos on her mobile, and wondering why Hema Malian lost so much money because of Bobby deol , do I even wanna know more ? 

So much to learn still MA.

mindful or unmindful- you can't deny your cell phone




It was one of those days, I was on the train and was sure I would get there eventually after all the train was Two hours late and fairly done thing while travelling on Indian railways

 Till I overheard my co – passenger telling his friend that the train would terminate early and not go all the way, oh oh- is that like even a possibility and frantic phone calls reveal this guy was indeed correct and the train would be stopping early and not at the destination that I had been sold a tkt for.

Oh well there I was calling and calling to get through to my sources to help organize cars, all s well that ends well, n here I am making some images at the location.
