PROMPT #161- I invite you to meditate on the light this week, and share your take on the subject.

absence of light 

is the root cause of all our fears

let the light reach

the dark corners

of  mind, and heart

and enlighten the soul
to accept,

it’s okay to have 
some flaws

some flowers

give their fragrance at night best

let me accept

light and darkness both

and

unshackle me

from fears

PROMPT #160

I give you a situation this week.

You go down in a lift that doesn’t stop for hours. When it finally opens, what do you see?

HELLUCINATIONS?

We, 

the law-abiding
justice-seekers, call us fools or whatever…
Crammed in a lift going down. It may take hours we are informed. We don’t mind if it takes months or years, so long the door opens to the justice we are seeking.

Though at present things are looking grim as always we can’t afford to lose hope we, the die-hard optimists are prepared for the worst but hope for the best
Finally the lift stops.

The door opens,

‘Welcome to the fool’s paradise’

we are cheered by

the skeletons of the previous justice seekers.

Am I hallucinating?

giving finishing touches

never ends

you go on adding something here

delating something there

till your last breath

picture yet unfinished

yet to choose the right frame

ongoing process

someday someone will

finish the job

perhaps…

PROMPT #158- Singularity

Super human intelligence is here

you will be outdated

they try to scare me

I am already scared

I rely too much on 

my smartphone for information

than my own brain

which has punished me

by refusing to keep memories as before

But

what really concerns me is

will my equation with my loved ones will change

will my mind stop reading what they want to convey

Will I run for my phone to

read what their every gesture means

isn’t that the height of

horrible singularity

The Art – Patta Chita Paintings

Posted on

The Art – PattaChita Paintings

The base for the PattaChitra is created using threads from an old
saree that is then mixed with chalk, tamarind seeds, and a gum-like
resin from the bark of a local tree. After the drying process, the base
of the PattaChitra is ready to be painted upon.
The Art – PattaChita Paintings

The colors used are also 100% natural. The colors are extracted
from rocks, lamp black, Indigo, Conch Shells, and so on. The natural
gum of a fruit called ‘kaitha’ is mixed with the colors along with
water to ensure the colors stay fast.
The usual PattaChitra paintings last at least 100 years,

The Artist – Bijay Kumar Mohapatra

A National Merit Award winner, Bijay’s paintings have been exhibited
in many well- known galleries. His Pattachitra painting on Ramayana
was exhibited at the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya,
Bhopal. In 2008 and 2009, his Patta Chitra was displayed at the
Barabati Nrutya Ustav in Cuttack.
Most recently, his work was displayed at an art exhibition at the Sri Sri
University. Bijay has received the Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavana Award
from the Rajiv Gandhi Forum. His artwork has found a place in a
children’s book “Srujamyham” published in four languages by Pacad
Comics, Bhubaneswar.

Bijay now runs an Institution in Orissa where he trains young
children in this art. If you get a chance to speak with him ever, you
will realize his passion to keep this art form alive. earning money
from this painting comes a distant second in his mind.
The proceeds from this painting will go towards running of this
institution and more importantly keeping this beautiful
traditional art from Orissa alive.

3 Nature Therapy Exercises to Help You Live in the Now

“Nature is the best medicine for serenity. Peace. Calmness. Stillness.It’s good for the heart.” ~Karen Madwell

I was looking for a way to stop obsessing over the future. I’d spent my adult life as an underground musician, and it had been wonderful for the large part. The thing is, it wasn’t good for me anymore.

I felt anxious onstage. I felt really uncomfortable with so many people looking at me. I had changed as a person, and yet I continued putting myself through performing even though I hated it.

Have you ever done that? Have you ever continued to do things that you hate because you identify so strongly with what you are doing? If I wasn’t “a musician,” which I had been all of my adult life, then whatwouldI be? It felt as if I would be nothing at all.

Through dabbling with various new musical projects…

PROMPT #156- Deadline

Let’s set a deadline

Or I would procrastinate

But it’s so tiresome

Continuous tick-tock, tick-tock

Builds the pressure, makes queasy

Dead Are Unimpressed

Dead Are Unimpressed

One Woman's Quest

A cruel master
the ticking clock
So much potential
Get it done!

I rush past shadows
crumple the pages
failed attempts
mounting

What of dreams?
Of life’s destiny?
How I worship
at the altar of should

Even with positivity
fantastical notions fall short
I argue against uncertainty
meet only disapproval

There is no magic
no pre-destined fame
just dust gathering
the dead are unimpressed.
