Just Let It Flow

The artist felt terribly shackled as her work was not recognized.
Though it won awards, she got no mention...

Tears flooded her eyes and face.
She heard a sweet voice saying "Just let it flow".

Wiping her tears, she was surprised to see a little bird advising her- "Unshackle yourself and go with the flow".
She remembered what wise people have said- "The cause of sorrow is attachment".  

5 Reasons Why We Must Save Photos In Online Albums

I love clicking photographs.
I feel I am capturing memories.
However, I rarely use or share such photographs. They largely remain confined to my digital device's memory and are housed in privacy.
I have used a few for posting to my blog, but the vast majority remain stored and scarcely get a double look, thereby defeating the purpose why they were clicked.

You may wonder- why don't I post my photographs online?
Like everyone else, even I can upload to photo-sharing social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or to the available online photo-albums, right?
The reality is - my profile photo has been the same over the years across Twitter, FB, Blog etc!
How private can one be in this age of social media when someone or the other is tagging you?!
Who or what is stopping me from sharing pics and tagging others? 

Over the past few months, I have been considering some reasons why we must save our photos in online albums:

The Last Day Of My Life

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

How would you react if you came to know-
If there was a divine light/sound to tell you so-
“Today is the last day of your life on Earth”.
Wouldn’t the news be a shock, ending mirth?

Today is the day I have to revel & live,
Today is the day I’ll enjoy; not grieve!
Pending tasks, unfinished stories,
Half-completed-reports, unbalanced peace...

My procrastination & confidence is to blame,
I thought I’ll live long & life will be the same!
The realisation hit me that minutes are ticking,
‘Today is my last day’- I’m helplessly thinking.
WOW: Today Is Your Last Day On Earth

Special Student

When she first joined the dance-class, everyone guessed that she was special.
She earned a special seat, attention and care!
She was beautiful.
Her flawless skin dazzled more than her bright yellow frock.

“Here, let me help you begin.”
The dance-teacher kept his hands on her slim-waist and lifted her.
Her delicate frame seemed ready for any move.

The Garden View

She found a garden-space.

Something told her that it's too small for her huge plantation dreams!

She silenced the thought saying- the space is huge for an ant!

The next moment, she got an ant's eye view of the said garden-space!

The grasses looked huge and the sides of the table like a strong brick wall!

What had happened? How would she regain her previous dimensions?

Sunrise On The Chilika Lake

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
I love sunrise for the new hope, energy and freshness it ushers.
Recently, I had the great opportunity to watch the sunrise at Asia's largest lagoon and the second largest lagoon in the world, Chilika Lake.
This eco-paradise, located in the Ganjam district of Odisha, attracts lakhs of migratory birds.

Watching the sunrise at a tourist place is an incentive to say bye to sleep & the facilities of a comfortable room!
Do you like sacrificing sleep to greet the morning rays of the sun?

When I woke up in the morning and looked out, I could see the lights from the Kalijai Island nearby.
I hurried to the banks of the Chilika ready to greet the sun!

Design #OpenFuture

I'd change everyone's attitude & perception-
Everyone 24/7 will be their best version!
Spread positivity, enthusiasm & smiles,
Encourage all to do so across the miles!

If all of us think & act this way every minute,
We all can change the world bit by bit.
Let's revel in the similarities we share,
To celebrate the differences, let’s care.

#RasagolaDibasa : The Spelling Is RASAGOLA

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Rasagola has a historical and cultural link with Odisha, a state of eastern India.
Read about 'Rasa', Rasakora, Rasabara, Rasagola in Odia Dictionary here.

Rasagola is a centuries-old Mahaprasad of Puri Jagannath Temple that is offered to Lord Jagannath and His wife, Mahalakshmi, every year on Niladri Bije, the last day of Ratha Jatra (Car Festival). 
However, most of the world is still unaware about the real origin of Rasagola.

Following the Banglar Rasogolla GI tag in November last year, there has been blatant misinformation. 
Even pink papers like the Economic Times and sites like the Conde Nast Traveller have presented distorted and misleading reports.
You can read these posts for more- "Battle" Over Rasgulla - Misleading Media Reports 
 & Rasagola Project #RasagolaProject
Why is it that no national media reports news about Rasagola in Shree Jagannathji's cuisine?
Why all the national papers did not find this interesting for publication- that this special cover has been released by the Department of Posts?

The Object Of My Affection

Today on Bahuda Jatra, we had a family-function.
The object of my affection was a part of the celebration.

With my object around, the function was a treat!
For me, it made the Satyanarayana Puja complete!

This object makes its presence felt on occasions-
Irrespective of the big and small celebrations!

It comes in different sizes & colour- cool variety!
These days, one can find it all over, in many a city.

Proven Princess

 "What do you see?"
"The gates of an ancient fort... It's snowing. There's a crown on my head..."
"The fort no longer exists... I'm staying in the same place. Everyone calls me 'Princess'."
Her answers pertained to her past lives as she was undergoing past-life-regression sessions.
