An emotion

A Hunch…..
An Intuition ….
A suspicion….
A sense….
A Feeling….

Fleeting…
Momentary…
Vague…..

An emotion….
Is like …
A Guest…..

Let it in….
And…
See it off…

Up side down….!

 

Some times…you have to let life turn…you upside down…so you can learn …how to live right….side up….#unknown

Isn't that true..?atleast this wee bird thinks so…I always it see it upside down. …enjoying munching on those acacia shoots…!

 

Eating …upside down…must be delicious..!!!!

 

 

Life is short….it can be turned upside down…any moment…sharia twain

 

So…enjoy life…however possible…even sometimes if it is upside down…

 

Bougainvilleas

 

As I sip…

My coffee…

Hear a chatter…

In my little green patch….

The bougainvilleas…

Yellow…orange…

Pink…lavender…

Look…at us…

Bright…& ..colourful

Even the sun…

Can't pale us..

So they…say to

The white one…

She smiles…nods…

Sways….& ..says…

Wait for the

Night fall…

No color…

Stands out…

As much as me…

As I shine…

Glitter in the

Moonlight….,!

 

 

At noon…as seen from kitchen balcony

It is very hot these days…more so between 12-3pm…but when I look out…life goes on as usual…for these birds…plants…it actually doesn't matter….their daily routine goes on…they have certain plans for the day…& it is done…each of the bird has its own favourite twig..branch…tree…

Here is a photo blog…thank god for my camera…& the birds in our campus.. Other wise boredom would have killed me..

 

Ever green…fresh…

 

This banyan tree is a favourite with sparrows

 

This thorny acacia…mourning dove loves it

Purple sun bird…often seen on this branch

 

The neem tree…mynah's pick

 

The pigeons are usually on the ground …in the shade

 

Bul bul…always very careful…stays away from the cats

 

Indian silver bill…on the farthest acacia shrub…because of the bright light…not a great pic

This again due to bright sunlight…& distance …not a clear pic…this is the most tiny bird of all…prinia…but the loudest…every once an hour…comes to the same shrub…sings a song…& disappears

This cat is no visitor …his parents live here in campus…his favourite spot..is this branch…bang in front of my window…

So…this is life at noon…

It may b hot…but never boring…

 

An evening in Paris ..!!!

It is more than a month now…since we are back in sohar…have been wanting to put up this blog…but some how kept postponing it…in a week I'm off to Bangalore …so I thought I shud put it up this night….

Paris…there is something special about that city….one can feel it…this is a photo blog…an experience I will cherish

We left the hotel around 6 in the evening…& our first stop was river seine…it is said it is a lovers spot…but that evening…full of tourists…although I saw few brides in all their finery…taking pics on the bridge…we walked a little distance…had an ice cream …& just watched all the people…!

Then we decided to take a ride on tuk-tuk…we met this young guy Thomas …who was the guide& driver

As the Eiffel Tower lit up…Thomas took many pictures..standing …sitting…!!! Eiffel Tower is best at night…morning it was a disappointment for me…

 

The tuk tuk ride began…this square..the obelisk…& some where there napoleon rests too

 

The arc de triomphe….majestic…crowded…& from here the champs élysées …begins

 

Lot of trees,shops,cafes,& lights

 

Shops…shops…&..shops

 

One can just sit with a beer or coffee…& spend the whole night there

 

Another end of champs

Louvre museum…entrance..this was the last on tuk tuk…then Thomas dropped us for dinner

 

The hotel is cile de Paris…it is on 56 th floor…popular with tourists & locals…for food & also the view of Eiffel Tower…

Must say it was magical !

 

The last…& a thing which was on vijay's wish list…moulin rouge…

It was so beautiful…such beautiful men & women…one has to experience it… It was worth it

 

Once the show was over…took a cab back to hotel…Paris was still busy…lot of people…may be it is a city that never sleeps!

Paris is perennial …I guess…one for all seasons…all times

As we got back to the room…I remembered that old Hindi song…

Aji aisa mauka phir kaha milega….aao tumko dikhlathi hoon…Paris ki ek rangeein shaam…!

Deko…deko..deko..deko…

An evening in Paris

Thank u vijay…& of course Thomas the nice tuk tuk guy

 

Wandering thoughts

Deep into the night….
As I toss…&…turn
Sleep…seems…
To be distant…
My thoughts wander…
Here..&…there…
But…then…
Slowly…surely…
They are all bridged…
As they connect…
Peace descends…
And..I …
Drift away…
Into the ….
World….
Of sleep….
