Let me end with this poem by Angela Morgan.

“God, when you thought of a pine tree,
How did you think of a star?…

God, when you chiseled a raindrop,
How did you think of a stem,
Bearing a lovely satin leaf
To hold the tiny gem?” …

– Angela Morgan

I know why the caged bird sings

“…. I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
    When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore,—
When he beats his bars and he would be free;
It is not a carol of joy or glee,
    But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core,
But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings—
I know why the caged bird sings! “

                                   – Paul Laurence Dunbar

P.S: These photographs have no connection with the poem yet I thought to share my photographs along with it.

What does the Road speak…?

A road can say many things….

A road describes of a journey, a journey ahead and a journey completed.

A road reminds us of our choice: the choices of our past and the choices of our future.

A road reminds us of our walking together…and walking alone…

A road tells us to live every moment…

A road tells us how well we travelled not how fast we moved….

And road signifies life…..

Road brings us home…road takes us to our loved ones….

It can take us so close and can take us so far…but it says choice is ours…

It tells us so many things…

and the road talks a lot…just like my mom….!!!

 Listen to what it tells you….

Let’s see photographs of some beautiful roads and see what else does it speak….?

(These photographs were taken over the period of two years)

Mussoorie; The queen of Hills….

Mussoorie is known as the queen of hills, popular and one of the most beautiful hill station in India. It is a small town  situated on the hills. The glorious and magnificent view of the mountains, snow during winter, lush green forest, splendid sunrise and sunset and beautiful view of the clouds make it a must visit place for people who love nature….

I had an opportunity to visit the place for the first time with my brother in October 2014 when the winter was just starting in India. We travelled to Mussoorie by motor bike and enjoyed the beautiful drive on the first day and also had a chance to go by bus on the next day. We visited some of the places and climbed mountain to have a view of Himalayan snow covered mountains from far. The climate was perfect to spend the day. I also had a long discussion on development with Dr. Jeph one of my friends while watching the view of the great mountains from his house. Here are some of the photographs of the place taken in two different days which would give you a glimpse of my experience in Mussoorie.

God willing I would plan many more visits to this place and especially during snow and share with you my experience through my photographs and hopefully with a DSLR next time.
