Rains are amazing; even more amazing is the view after them. After the rains, all I go out to capture are the drops. I went out, as the rains had just stopped. Armed with my mobile phone and a (cheap)macro clip-on lens; I knew something or other would be there, waiting for me. Droplets can be amazing to capture.
It was office time, and the work was completed. I had some spare time, so ventured out. The thing about macro photography is that they can be quite tedious to observe. You need a keen eye, an eye for elusive details to see them. Luckily for me, I was glad to have seen the beautiful view.
हम अपने ही घर में मेहमान बन जाते हैं
जब अम्माँ हमारा स्वागत करती हैं
क़दम रखते ही बचपन की यादें घेर लेती हैं
आँखों में एक नमी सी झलकती है
आँगन में ना अब हम दौड़ते
ना ही अमरूद को तोड़ कर खाते
छुट्टियों में चार दिन की लिए घर आते
सारी यादें समेंट कर फिर वापस चले जाते
बचपन की वो यादें
वो थप्पड़ और चाटें
उन्ही ने तो सही रास्ता दिखाया
वरना हम तो सड़क पर ही पाए जाते
यादों को समेटते
चाचा चाची नाना नानी को याद करते
वो चार दिन ख़त्म होने को आते
बिखरा हुआ बचपन को समेटते हम नज़र आते
If ever there was an award for “The most infrequent blogger ever“, no wonder I would have been the king, dethroning every other for the last year or the previous one before that.
Consider the world a vast ocean, where you venture out with your very own small boat when blogging for the first time. With every (regular) post, it’s like you’re investing on that boat itself, going a little bit far from the shore where it all started. Move even further, and you will find other boats too, other like minded people with there own boat, out to venture in an adventure. We interact, make completely new friends. That’s where we gain followers, likes and comment. Quite a correlation.
For if you need some motivation to start off your day, or maybe if life has got just an upler edge over you, all you need is a hint of self confidence. And you will see all those fragile enemies vaporised in the ether. This reposted blog by The Higher Authority will sure cheer up the day and if not all, give you a few ideas for that inner Hercules in you to conquer the world….
Have you ever doubted your worth? Have that ever crossed your mind? Well, I’ve.
What I’ve done to gain confidence to say: ‘I AM WHO I AM’ today.
The way you treat or see yourself sets the tone for how other people treat and see you.
To receive a positive outcome, you can not give a negative effort. Likewise, to receive good vibes from others, you NEED to feel good within yourself .well that’s hard because everyday, we are constantly fighting a battle against NEGATIVITY . But by simply repeating positive affirmations and embracing who you’re, you’re going to start feeling like a QUEEN . And that’s one of the best ways to gain confidence .
Know yourself what you stand for and who you are.
How can life be an adventure if you have no goals? Same goes for you! How can you be confident if you don’t know…

Starting today, I am giving myself a challenge. I will upload a picture, shot by me, at regular intervals, and do a writeup on that. I will call it Photo Challenge. It’s going to be a tough task ahead, so why not do it!!
Up until now, in most of my blog posts, the scenario was quite the opposite. I would do the write-ups, and then search for the relevant image to compliment that. And I guess most of us bloggers here follow the same.
Hope I survive this new challenge, and in the process of it all, test myself and keep you guys entertained. Since it’s a new endeavour, any suggestions and advice is gladly welcome.
P.S: This lovely picture was captured on a lovely evening at my office site on iPhone, and edited in Snapseed.
