When the weather is cloudy inside and outside, you search for a ray and cling to it like anything.

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results. – Willie Nelson
This post is for friends who were missing me. I am touched. I was absent from word press since 16th may for biopsy of a small lesion in my husband’s prostrate gland and subsequent treatment . The report being malignant , we opted for Robotic surgery at Kokilaben hospital, Mumbai. Since there was a time limit of one month between biopsy and surgery , we went to stay at Lonavla, a place full of trees and surrounded by Sahyadri hills , just proper for our mental condition, with my son at INS ShivaJI after completion of investigative tests. He got operated on 16th June and was released on 21st. He is okay and recovering fast. After three months if his PSA level is normal then we can sigh in relief. Hoping for the best.
Struggle is the essential part of the life.
Everyone is struggling for this or that.
At present I’m struggling to take a photograph of a beautiful black and white bird. It’d wings and tail has beautiful black and white stripes.
It comes near me flaunting its me beautiful black and white striped tail but as soon as I focus my phone camera it flies away and sits far away. Now my camera is not that powerful.
I have been at this lonely place surrounding by many types of trees and birds and squirrels. Except trees I have not been able to take a single photograph of a bird or squirrel.
It seems they have all planned to play a game with me. They come very near to eat fruit of the tree under which I sit and try to sit still for a long time but no luck.
Seventeen days and still struggling for a photograph. Tomorrow morning I’ll leave this place. No hope of catching them.
Always rebuild the connection with true friends, at any cost, if by any chance or mistake it’s broken.
Beautiful post by https://somawrites.wordpress.com/2016/06/13/precious-rubbles/. She has written beautifully what I wanted to say but could not like this.
And it rages on,
The fight for who has more right;
Whose blood is the bluest
Whose god is the greatest
Whose land is the most fruitful
Whose religion is superior
Who has the right to life
And who should die
It’s a lot easier to destroy
And takes much more effort to rebuild
Now you see it;
Now it’s a heap of ashes and rubbles
Hate justifies, anger unleashes
In their wake, crimson pools
Lifeless limbs, headless bodies
Smell of death and precious rubbles
Burn it down, destroy it all
Pull them down, all of it!
So much hate, so much anger
No love lost, so little love
Buildings torched, bridges blown apart
Animals set ablaze, Humans massacred
Of communities set to ruin
And a people displaced
Children orphaned, widows
Widowers, all homeless
Each, mourning a loved one.
And it rages on
Who wins the superiority war?

Thee most essential quality
Solves all problems
Understanding others problems
Understanding others stands on some issues
Understanding others religious, cultural beliefs and respect for them
Understanding between friends, relatives, spouses and all human beings
Makes life beautiful and bearable.
It’s all about our perception how we look at life, it’s ups and downs and every situation,
and that makes our life simple or complex.
Simplicity in human nature, writing, appearance and in character is admirable.
For some like me
A Herculean task
old habits die hard
I love these quotes about transformation.
“What transforms this world is — knowledge. Do you see what I mean? Nothing else can change anything in this world. Knowledge alone is capable of transforming the world, while at the same time leaving it exactly as it is. When you look at the world with knowledge, you realize that things are unchangeable and at the same time are constantly being transformed.”
― Yukio Mishima,
“When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings.”
― Dean Jackson
“The next step in mans evolution will be the survival of the wisest.”
― Deepak Chopra
“Meditation is the process of transformation and beautification of soul from a leaf-eating caterpillar to a nectar-sipping butterfly. It grows with the wings of love and compassion.”
― Amit Ray,
The most embarrassing situation in my life came when we went for shopping for my son’s wedding. My son , her fiance, her parents, my husband and me,all went together to purchase clothes and jewelry .
We entered a big women’s clothing shop. I noticed a beautiful dress on a girl standing very still and thinking that it’s a mannequin I went near to touch the cloth to see the quality of the material and as soon as I tried to touched it, it started walking away. Everyone started laughing. I never felt so embarrassed in my life.
Now, nowadays they make mannequin so human like that sometimes it’s difficult to make the difference until you see it from very close. Well, I have learned my lesson .
I think I have a split personality.
One part of me feels deeply connected to each and everything. With people, trees, sea, planets etc. Even with ants, birds and animals. As if I’m an extension of nature connected with everyone and everything with an invisible cord. There is love, harmony and understanding with everything.
On the other hand my other part seems disconnected to everything and everyone, even my near and dear ones, my friends. How much we know about each other? Everyone seems like an Island. Sometimes I feel as if I am standing very far away from everyone, detached . Looks like everyone is hiding behind a mask. They are not what they seem to be.
Or I am the one who is wearing a mask? I’m confused, very confused. Who is the real me?
