Seti Gandaki Landscape

This is the view towards west from my home town Belchautara.The landscape is characterized by neatly carved cliffs by the Seti river. You can't miss the evening breeze from this place if you are around.

this, and that!

where do you find yourself,
when you are encountered with a sense of content
a sense of dissent, at the same time.

there is something you achieved
and a lot yet to reach to.
a bit here in your hands
and a lot out there in the woods.

how do you console yourself
when you euthanasiate —
from the ever lasting and never diminishing TODOs
from the small glow of achievement.

how do you draw a line,
between this tinyness of your spot, in space time continuum
and a total immenseness of googleplex!

this minuteness,
that vastness,
this little twitch of our lips when you smile,
that HUGE, forked, deviated delta in life!

how do you compensate
between the hatred — culminated from years of disgust
the sense of belongingness — the unchanged innateness

is the essence.
‘this’ carries you the best
than everything else.

is the goal.
‘that’ drives you further / crazy
doesn’t let you sleep.

the only issue is:
how do you remain aloof from ‘that’
‘that’ that always keeps you distracting,
or perhaps keeps you driving.

how do you keep yourself
in peace & in harmony,
the question I have, my friend:
how to be balanced between: ‘this’ and ‘that’

waiting for an orange

the day can never break
better than this.
look father - an orange coming up the horizon!
you kick-start my mornings —

the day can never break
as beautifully as it does,
for the fourth time
you caress me — searching for a divine retreat,
which, of course, i cannot furnish.
and incessantly kick me
out of unconscious fury,
which i love.
kicks were never sweeter!

the day can never end,
better than this.
we merge in the herd of — frogs, wolves, lions
and clever rabbits and raven!
when, you suddenly stop asking questions.
i realize,
its time to disperse the ants and doves,
and collect small sticks,
to warm up, our nest,
and bid adieu to this jolly day!

until the orange ripens,
through its trajectory,
and I wait, to hear:
look father! an orange coming up the horizon
you kick start my mornings,
you conclude my evenings!

Myopia is a severe disease of humankind

How often have we zoomed out 2-3 levels out and looked at the same scene? Do you recall the time when you looked around from above, rather than confining your view to a specific area?

Zoom Out & See!

If only people had done this, things would have been different.

Around Bouddhanath Stupa

Light is good,
When there is light, we can (easily) see things around. It makes it easier for us to connect with the environment (world). What if there is no light. Are we still able to stay connected? We "know" things are there, but we can't feel them just because we don't see them. We cannot see them doesn't mean they cease to exist.

See the last two photos, one is sun-lit, the next was taken when it was (apparently) dark. It took my camera 30 seconds to collect enough light to illuminate the stupa :) and it is brighter than the sun-lit stupa.

:) Enjoy the new year!

First Rays of Light on Mt. Hiuchuli

First Rays of Light on Mt. Hiuchuli
Originally uploaded by songsalways

On the chilly morning of December, I woke up in the hotel of Machhapuchhre base camp to get a glimpse of Sun rays touching the top of Mt. Hiuchuli. It was an awesome view, an awesome experience.
