ESE’ S WEEKLY SHOOT&QUOTE CHALLENGE – WHOLE

Even after all this time, 

The sun never says to the earth, 

” You owe me.”

Look what happens with a love like that.

It lights the whole sky.

- Hafiz of Persia

Making a person smile can change the world- may be not the whole world, but their world.

If we could see the miracle of a single flower, our whole life would change.

The hotel is Mumbai’s first harbour landmark (built 21 years before the Gateway of India) and the site of the first licensed bar in the city. For more than a century, the Taj has played an intrinsic part in the life of the city, hosting Maharajas, dignitaries and eminent personalities from across the globe. Today it is a Leading Hotel of the World and favourite destination for discerning business travellers.

Everyday is Friendship Day

Posted on

Somewhere in life

There must be someone

To take your hand

And share the torride day.

Without the touch of friendship

There is no life, and we must fade away.

- RUSKIN BOND

Sourse- Healing into Wholeness

My take on friends and friendship

What are friends there for ?

If not for 
Care, concern and adulation
For being comfortable
In silence and communication
For supporting each other
In every difficult situation
For helping each other
Without humiliation
For accepting each other
Without any discrimination.
———————————

Some Haiku(s) 

1- Friendship can unite

     Different species together

     Miraculous bond

2- True friend and friendship

     Most rare and valuable gift

     Treasure it with care

3- Love, trust, compassion

    Synonymous with friendship

    True friends are a bliss 

4-  If all religions 

      Shed their animosity

       Friendliness survives

5- Who cares for color

     When bond of love is strong

     Friendship matters more

black and white

 

Size does not matter

Caste and creed may be different

Friendship cares for none

affection

Friends! What’s your take on friendship, share with me .

Five Sentence Fiction – Whimsical

wimsical playhouse

Whimsyland

My husband brought me to this place ‘Whimsy land’  to have fun as I always complain of living a boring life, now here  I can dance with the clouds, fly with the butterflies, play with the dolphins or whatever damned activities I can think off and now I should be thankful to him for fulfilling my dreams.

 I have to live here alone for a few days as he has some urgent work to complete then he will come back and take me back.

 It is one month passed and he has not yet come back.

 The staff here said that it is a mental asylum where rich people leave their burdens and pay a good some for that and now I’m to live here forever.

 I’m not complaining as it’s better here as compared to his ‘all work and no fun’ gloomy house which was like a tomb,I’m having lots of fun with the inmates.

ESE’ S WEEKLY SHOOT&QUOTE CHALLENGE – WINGS

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.

Birds have wings; they’re free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy.

The butterfly doesn’t know how long he has to live, but that doesn’t stop him from spreading his wings and his joy.

The butterfly doesn't know how long he has to live, but that doesn't stop him from spreading his wings and his joy.  Ash Sweeney quotes
 

It is well to fetter the wings of our fancy and restrain its flights.

From your parents you learn love and laughter and how to put one foot before the other. But when books are opened you discover that you have wings.

Helen Hayes

“Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

- A threshold is a point of entering; that point just before a new beginning — that split-second moment in time, full of anticipation. All the hard work is over; relief is palpable. 2- a level or point at which something is about to begin.

Biography of a film studio

 

I am an abandoned film studio.

Once upon a time I was well-known and full of activities. Directors on high chairs once shouted through their megaphone — Silence, Camera, Rolling and Action!

Today as Indian film industry is celebrating its 100th anniversary, I, which was once the launching pad for many superstars and legends is thirsting for a little recognition and remembrance.

No one comes here; in fact nobody even remembers that I was a studio that once upon a time was a major part of this industry.

Today I am nothing but the ruins of my glorious past.

 

Heritage Studios of Mumbai Some of the biggest studios of the 1920s and 1930s now lie in ruins.)
