Survival

“Extinction is the rule, survival is the exception” – Carl Sagan

I have been watching a crow family who have made the pine tree in front of my house their home. Perched on the top the Mama crow sat on her eggs and perched in my balcony drinking tea I watched over them. I had also bought a new DSLR so they were my muse for a while. I prayed for them every time there was a thunderstorm and the tree swayed left and right in the wind or whenever I saw the eagle hovering above.

The predator

And then came the day….. when I saw something I never thought I would see and which broke my heart.

Seemed like the eggs had hatched and the babies wanted food. The papa crow and mama crow cawed at each other(I had no clue what they talked then) and after the conversation papa crow perched near the nest while the mama crow went to the nearby pigeon colony. She tried to get near some pigeon nests but one pigeon family gave her a fight, however there was a lonely pigeon mama sitting on her eggs in one corner. The crow went there and started attacking the pigeon, the brave pigeon never gave up so the papa crow pitched and both started attacking the pigeon. They were so quick and dexterous that finally the mama pigeon couldn’t take it anymore and left the nest. Then the crows took the pigeon eggs to feed their babies. The pigeon came back to her nest to see the damage, I am not sure if they have feeling but to me it looked like she was heartbroken.

Like a curious cat I watched nature at work – my tea got cold…..BUT this got me into thinking –

Is survival the only purpose of life?

If YES – then there is no good and bad, they are mere perceptions – what is good to me could be evil to others and vice versa. There can be a justification for everything we do and the action could be right as long as our conscious is clear !!!

If NO – then should we just succumb to the bad and be grateful for the good and live life thinking – everything happens for a reason !!!

Just some r@nd0m th0ught$ !!!

You can find yogi’s any where in India, some new bee’s, some in the process, some who might have attained higher consciousness and some just pretending to be one. Looking at this one I wondered – is he a genuine one or a fake!!!ย  Is he meditating, contemplating or he is just tired and relaxing? What made him give up worldly pleasures and adorn saffron robes and roam the streets without shoes on his feet, a roof on his head? What could his life have been before he decided to take this path? Is he repenting his decision or is he in bliss already? Was it his true calling or just an influence?

I would never know ….!!!

“Little Steps – Big Impact”

My Bachi, little creature who had\has a huge impact in our lives. It been a year since he is gone but we still miss him the same. I still wonder how he might have returned back to this world – again as a dog, a cow which stared at me, the lizard which refuses to leave my room,ย  a human whom I might meet after some years; or is his karmic debt cleared and he is gone for good.

Pedestrian

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop” – Confucius

The two things I enjoy as a pedestrian in India is the simplicity around me and the colors. Even after such technological advances you can always find places where people and things move at a turtle pace and it all looks so peaceful and connected to nature.

Cattle herd returning home after leisurely grazing the whole day. BIT Mesra, Ranchi, the place where I was brought up and completed my education. Life there is so slooowww, nothing much has changed yet. All the while I was there I wanted to move to the city and to fast life and now I spend humongous amounts of money for a peaceful day or two.

Shopping market at Church Complex, Ranchi.

Love the Indian shops they are all so colorful and bright. They never fail to change my mood ๐Ÿ™‚

Earth

“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.

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™‚

wall-mural-2

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.
