THE GREEN CLOAK OF NATURE




" To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug."            
Hellen Keller



'G' is for Green/ Greenery

From times immemorial man had a deep kinship with nature.Disturbing this relatedness means inviting his own peril.


Man, mountain, nature and sky converge to create a glorious visual narrative.


Pines studded hillside watched by the cloudy  presence of sky.

GREETINGS ON OUR 70TH INDEPENDENCE DAY


                                 CONGRATULATIONS!!!


With humility and overwhelming sense of pride and patriotic fervor, I salute those who passed through untold sufferings and made supreme sacrifices to attain our dream of freedom from the British rule. Though the story of our freedom struggle has been chronicled countless times yet its significance in the heart of every Indian never wanes. On this momentous occasion, I heartily felicitate all fellow Indians living in India or abroad for a bright and fulfilling future.

                        
                        

                              ' SARE JAHAN SE ACCHA
  

                        HINDUSTAN HAMARA HAMARA..........' 


 .............



Here friends, I'm sharing with you some of the photographs, which i took while watching the independence day celebrations on TV at the Red Fort Delhi. The images are not very good but they are part of a symbolism which is unique and sacred to us all Indians.

CUCKOO PAYS A VISIT



Early morning today, I's preparing tea in the kitchen and saw through the window the cuckoo perched on a pillar all relaxed in a meditating pose. Clicked.


It sensed my presence and was readying to fly away and i clicked. Though, as i moved in it stayed there for quite some time.



Friends,welcome here as always!
