The Conversation 

It just happened like that

I was not aware nor were you

And silence was the only word.

She will come out

My first solo trip. Let me share a little bit about it. I’m walking down the streets of Darjeeling, looking around and finding newness in everything. Though the place is new for me, I can totally relate to it’s streets and colorful houses. It resembles exactly to those line houses I drew as a child on walls of my room. House with the roof top and chimney, sun rising from middle of two mountains and river passing by. Ain’t that a beautiful scenario to wake up to everyday! (P.S. : Also having famous Darjeeling green Chai is like living my own childhood drawings.). Every brick here tells me a tale. They tell me how long they have been here on the streets of Darjeeling. It is like they have aged under the warm sun, cool breeze, soft snow and the chilled rain of the city. The more it ages the more it blooms. Compared to my city this city is peaceful. No race. No rush. Everywhere I see, there is gradient. Either up or down. There is no straight. At one such gradient I looked up an saw this beautiful brick house with an elegant woman standing at the window wearing their tradition gown. I saw her elegance and now I can’t stop looking at her. She gave me a smile while I could not help but notice her beautiful eyes and pink blush-y cheeks. A moment later she disappeared and even I left. For next couple of days the route with the brick house became my mandatory route the further exploration; I looked up daily to the window but could not find her. I know, she will come out and give that smile again.

A young poor girl gives the breath taking performance in the midst of nature. The Sun is already down and sky has painted itself beautifully with soothing colors. The orchestra of ocean and birds are composing music. It is an unusual performance of the girl and the nature as a team.

Fun

Searching for fun ?

I’m on a self assignment of capturing “fun” photographs these days.
I encounter a lot of moments happening around me every second; some days a lot, some days not so much. At times that these moments drag my attention to notice them.
As I am on this assignment, I try to extract different perspectives in the routine as well as the unusual. And yes I find fun.
It’s been a month now that, I’m travelling to Gandhinagar for work.
Luckily, I find a window seat every morning. So I get chance to talk to Mr. Sun every day about fun. My interaction with him is very surprising. Sometimes he directly hits on my cheek and the next moment he hides behind the building and suddenly he pops out from the trees.

So what is fun exactly? I ask.
Smiling, or getting satisfaction from what you are doing. May be yes it’s true, because I like this moment and there’s a big smile on my face. Listening to music, dancing, laughing with your grandparents, hanging out with your buddies, flirting with strangers, making love, kissing, glancing at someone…
I guess every single moment which brings a smile and sparkle in my eyes is fun. So when I’m having fun I don’t care what the world thinks about me.
