Weekly Photo Challenge : Silence

“I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.”

About the photo –
Clicked by CANON Rebel T6i (and edited by Snapseed App), while on my daily walk at the Riverfront Walking Trail, Memphis – this photo clearly depicts “SILENCE” and the need for it!
In today’s world when everything around us is so deafening and ear-splitting, SILENCE is the need of the hour. Flashy friendships, blatant relationships and clamorous associations, they all are manifestation of unnecessary chatter! With fabricated liaisons and blaring lies being omnipresent, calmness is a necessary occurrence which comes to us at a high price! Towering buildings, maddening gridlock and oh! so harried lives – has had us all so tangled, that, calmness feels awkward!
I wish for muteness! I wish for calmness! I wish for a piece of “SILENCE” to call my own!

Weekly Photo Challenge : Weathered

“In sailing, in weather, in life and death, answers are not endings and questions are not to be feared. The unknowns keep us moving forward.” 
― Kaci Cronkhite

From the past!

About the photo –
Clicked by Nexus 6P phone (and edited by Snapseed App), on my trip to a small town called Bhangarh (in India), this photo speaks a thousand words about being “WEATHERED!”
Famous for its historical ruins, and considered to be one of India’s many haunted locations – Bhangarh (established in 1573) is an embodiment of age-long history and yesteryear. Once a town alive with people like you and me, it is now a land of relics, reminding us of an era of princely states and regal existence. From grand courtyards, abundant riches and effusive lifestyle to a wreckage that’s long forgotten, this town sermonizes the imprint of “time and tide!”
From witnessing the past to now becoming a “historical site” – Bhangarh with its legends of the antiquity, has for sure weathered!

Weekly Photo Challenge : Growth

“Once you hit rock bottom, that’s where you perfectly stand; That’s your chance of restarting, but restarting the right way.”

About the photo –
Clicked by Nexus 6P phone (and edited by Snapseed App), on my trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Ruby Falls – this photo, for me, highlights the process of “GROWTH.”
Depicted here in the photo is – a Stalactite (which is – an icicle-shaped formation that hangs from the ceiling of a cave, and is produced by precipitation of minerals from water dripping through the cave ceiling) and a Stalagmite (which is – an upward-growing mound of mineral deposits that have precipitated from water dripping onto the floor of a cave) – growing, drop by drop, over a million of years to form a Column, overcoming any challenges and distress thrown at them.
Resilient, irrepressible and effervescent – these so-called “rock formations” in the middle of no-where, braving through hardships and experiencing testing times, are a perfect reminder to us – to never Give Up Growing!
When you don’t wait for a perfect environment, but en-cash on the worst that the life throws at you – Growth is inevitable!

December Photo Challenge : Day 29

Hello everyone! It’s day 29 of the “December Photo Challenge” by Through The Eyes Of Gracie. Yay!

Here I am sharing with you all my two preferred versions of “Carol of the Bells” – The first one is from Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the other one is by Lindsey Stirling. Well, music has always resonated with me and my soul, dismissing all the negativity and the hostility around. It is my go-to thing to do whenever I am morose and bitter. No matter what and how I feel, music – always, always uplifts me to an absolute place.

Aptly said and rightly believed – “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” 
― Bob Marley
