Beauty and Essential Crisis

Image
Beauty is that element present in body, in thought, in sensations that pulls and attracts an admiring sense organ towards that entity. It has that innate power to benumb the acuity of all senses and thus summon an altogether different “real reality” that feels like being the only reachable Truth. But feelings change over the course of time, and that which is now so new should soon cease to be like that. And thoughts change with the change of perspective. All our senses are so fickle indeed that they never learnt the Grand Constancy. The “new” then appears withered and wizened. It is that very thought of crisis that then feels like being more real than the preceding episode of joy and ecstasy in colour, smell, and silence. That is essential crisis. Crisis in itself is a great part that constitutes our essence of being here and now, and everywhere else.

Faith and Doubt

Image
Doubt precedes faith. And when once the torch is well lit, the darkness gets devoured by light. Yes, light contains darkness, but not the vice versa.

I was all alone on that day. Yes, I was all alone. I was taking photos of people bathing without the ulterior motive of taking pictures of women in wet clothes—well, not that I do not like the sight, I do do, but that I do not quite like South Indians in such a state—at the renowned ghat that stands behind the Temple when I was accosted by four Rajasthani drunk men, and I knew from their eyes and looks that they were finding fault with me and my camera at ‘that’ place. I drink, and I know how to tackle these! I saw them coming close to me, yes, all four of them, and I turned out to be the one to extend my right hand to befriend them. And soon they were all smiles and I was taking their photographs (friends! I shall post their pics ones day, but presently just listen to my story). They were all my friends, and were too happy not to pose s…

Chitkul; The Quiet Village

Image
Chitkul is a village in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh on the banks of Baspa River. It is the first village of the Baspa Valley and the last village on the old Hindustan-Tibet trade route. The Indian road ends here. During winters, the place mostly remains covered with the snow and the inhabitants move to lower regions of Himachal. Potatoes grown in Chitkul are one of the best grown in the world and are very costly. It is also the last point in India one can travel without a permit.

The New Sun

The New Sun
Yesterday is dead: The sun whose sheen did almost fade Had left a twilight upon the deep Before the dampened wick was fast asleep. And down along the western side It’d dipped into abysmal loss of pride.
But here along the eastern line Nativity of New Sun is seen With the radiance of a new-born babe Old route once more ‘tis quick to pave With tiles of gold in every fold And to dole out life to the weak… …and to the bold.
