Life’s Dreary Moments
9th October 2015
I finally got my hoard of poems I used to write in school and which I thought was lost……. 😀
don’t you think of those days
when the things you expect doesn’t go your way
when hope plummets and never seems to rise again
the blackest moments when your heart is heavy
when you look at life as an abyss of unfathomable depth
and find even your close ones have deserted you
close your eyes and look carefully
was life testing you or just being a bully?
you will then realize it was because of those dreary moments
that the best brings out a smile

kaleidoscope in the dark

don’t be afraid
of the dark
beauty exists there too
Taken during a rehearsal, I loved the way the silhouettes showed against the light. It was my moment of satori. I have always loved the dark and feel the word has been wrongly portrayed as evil.

Hello There – Greetings from the stick people
4th September 2015
does your nose
the scent of childhood?
No these are not the scary legend of the stick people. They are harmless and quite a lot of fun to be with actually. Yeah the people on stilts :). Dont let their cumbersome walk fool you, they can run quite fast as demonstrated when we played catch me if you can (hmm maybe I was slow now that I think about it) and now imagine them them play soccer :D.
India, land of Colors and Cultures

busy grey world
a lone dancer
catches my fancy
I have always been attracted to colorful customs and cultures. The Mardi Gras and other such celebrations have caught the fancy of the world over. Closer home we have these dancers in stilts and horse costumes who also provide the necessary color to a a dull moment. Their dance called Kuduraiattam (literally translated to horse dance) to catchy beats can make you tap your feet with their movements…..The dance is popular in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. This is just one part of the country. Imagine the riot of colors India can be

Jolly Good Experience – Birdly
17th March 2015
feel like a bird
slicing through the wind
oh o experience over
I recently went to the Swiss consulate (Swissnexx) in Bangalore to try out their virtual simulator called Birdly. My timing was just about perfect since the crowd had just left. I was quite amused and curious when they asked how long back I ate.
The equipment as you can see above has two projections where the arms go. As you guessed by the name and design, this was a simulator to fly like a bird above the San Francisco Skyline. There is a fan to simulate the wind and headphones that give an overall effect.
The experience though a short one was anything like I had before. It was exactly like flying in the air and the flapping of wings and manipulation to turn and swoop exactly like a bird does. I did do a pigeon when I crashed into a building and the simulation ended but they were good enough to start it again 😀
That this was a freebie was an icing on the cake of course. Guess what I did after that? Tweeted of course!! (oh pun totally intended)

splash of salty manna
striking with force
washing away the tears
I love how the waves make a splash every time it meets the rocks. The best place to be is to be on the receiving end of that spray ….
