It is a refuge. I hope people actually get the time to read everything thats on the internet nowadays. So many people sharing their ideas in a very unique way. Some do it just for the sheer fun of it. Some do it for commercial gains, some for fame, some just to reach out to whoever they can.
I write on this blog mostly considering it as a note taker; As a dashboard for my opinions. A friend of mine introduced me to this site, and I am forever thankful towards him. I can see my thoughts like this clearly. Things that I don’t mind sharing with the world appear in front of my eyes with clarity. I realize that what i write on these blogs are things that I firmly believe in. These thoughts are those that I have no fear in declaring in public. What comes on the screen is a part of me.
Saw a documentary on National Geographic about Lions and their survival. Its a tough life. Wonderfully done film. I cant understand how they have managed to get so many angles of those kills. Simply amazing work. It was just like a feature film, with a plot a story, a climax and an end. I mean to do something like that with live animals in the wild is outstanding work.
I would love to go out in the wild one day and shoot a safari film. I had always had a dream of making something like that. Documentaries are my passion. If I had a choice I would put everything aside and just make films. I have to work on that. Lets see what comes ahead.
The documentary said in fifteen years there will be 8 billion Human Beings living on the face of earth and today there are only 20 thousand lions left in the wild. 8 billion with all their mess! We need to change our lifestyle! We need to put an end to this madness! we need to be better citizens of the world. We cant be so irresponsible! It is our duty to protect, and if nothing.. the least we could do is not to harm!
I love coffee ice-cream. There is a posh coffee house at the Taj in Mumbai called the Sea Lounge. We used to love to go there whenever we got a chance to have coffee ice cream, and a view of the great harbor seas of Mumbai. The name was very interesting too. It was Viennese (we used to pronounce it as vianoise, or maybe it is spelt like that.. I dont remember the spellings from the menu, i just remember the creamy taste). Another thing some of us loved to have over there was five star bhel puri. One plate costing around 300 rupees, whereas you could get one of those in less than 20 or 30 maybe outside. To have bhel puri the common street food of india in a five star plate in a five star hotel was something different, an experience in itself.
I havent been to that place since a very long time. Sea lounge was our hang out place. There is a shop called Nalanda on the ground floor, My mother used to take me there. Wonderful books. My mother is all about books, and reading and getting to know the world, and getting creative. I simply admire her passion towards knowledge and creativity. She always finds happiness in the written word.
Surat too makes one of the finest creamy coffee ice creams ever. Badshaah and Kings make delicious ice creams. They dont always have it in stock but when they do they know where its going to go. Its going to go straight to my fridge. I tried baskin’s coffee, but no where in comparison with Kings of Badshah. These two are like the giants of ice cream next to where i stay in Zampa Bazar Surat. They have loads of orders, in the gallons and gallons.
So long is there ice cream in this world I love it!!
The beauty of nature is unique, unmatched, and fantastic. There are infinite patterns not always symmetrical or matching to each other, but everything put together makes it a masterpiece. If we look at a single plant, we see that it grows in different directions, some leaves go right and some go left, some go up or some go down.
Researchers have found some maths in some of the designs of nature, like the Fibonacci sequence for example. Overall there is beauty in chaos. On the other hand when man makes a building or a chair or a table he has to be very careful in following a pattern, or some maths so to say. Man does not have the total liberty to create chaos and that it may ultimately result into beauty. Although man has found a way of imitating that chaos in the so called Modern art.
Finally we went up to the terrace for a walk! Today was our 10 year anniversary! Gifts are always welcome at such an occasion. The trouble is to find the right thing for a person.
I like the way things are packed. It reflects upon the sentiment behind the gift. The amount of effort one is willing to put in to wrapping that gift, is the amount of love that person has for you, I believe. A gift no matter how small should be presented well. :):):):):) even if its an emirates toothbrush case ; ) [That line was from my wife :)] She is funny. She has this thing with gifts. She packs them so well. My last birthday she had a whole treasure hunt planned out for me. There were gifts every where in the house. It was wonderful.
The thought and the willingness to spend time and energy to make someone happy results into these decorative gifts. I just love them. I wish they keep on coming with all their beautiful packaging
