“Heaven on earth is a choice you must make not a place you must find” – Wayne W Dyer

View from the Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur

This is a small pond in the middle of the desert land. As far as you can can see there is no vegetation, but Earth is kind enough to provide us with some life sustaining water. Mother Earth is kind and caring but we have lost respect for her.

Sometime back I came across a news that people in China are buying fresh air packets manufactured in Canada. I’d rather plant trees for the rest of my life than get into a situation like that. As Sadhguru says, “Right now we are looking at ecological concerns as an obligation to fulfill. It is not an obligation, it is our life.” So lets start caring for the other life around us.

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Recently I was reading this book, “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan; and got into thinking about priorities and choices. As adults when we have a choice and everything is at our discretion, is there a clear formula for making decisions so that we can make the best decisions for us and not trade them for just any decision?

I found my answer in PRIORITY, as long as we pause and think what really matters to us and let that drive our day/decisions we will have a sense of progress and can avoid getting trapped in busyness.

This painting was inspired by two thoughts –

  1. How important our environment is – we should make all effort to keep the earth beautiful as it should be so that we can enjoy living in it.
  2. How important our environment is – we should surround ourselves with people who add value to our life’s so that we can stay positive, productive and happy.

Wall mural universe – completed

Yeyy… I am back !!! …. after yet another relocation and a whole episode of searching for an apartment – shifting and settling in …

It feels good to back on the web …. and on wordpress… never thought I would miss wordpress so much… ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I started this ambitious wall mural project back when I was home and getting bored ….


I was supposed to fill up only the vertical walls …. but I got too ambitious and crawled onto the ceiling too … ๐Ÿ™‚


Maybe next time we will find a different place for the refrigerator and fill up that void too … ๐Ÿ™‚

In today’s post I will share the mysterious universe I tried creating inside my home…. I am obsessed with the universe paintings these day ย ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

After two crazy months I finally got my painting time. I just started somewhere and this is what evolved. This painting inspires me to buy a telescope and see the real cosmos and planets out there.
