The Colors of Light


Glow the lights,
Of colors all bright,
Radiance and festive,
Luminescence so captive,
Celebrations around,
Happy hearts found,
Joyfulness of rights,
Happy Festival of Lights!

Team ‘sunrise’ exclaimed; let land be red representing love, let air go blue spreading calmness and let sky show green keeping the nature lively.

Team ‘sunset’ exclaimed; Let sky go red spreading love, let air go blue spreading calmness and let land go green making a better place to live.

Both the arguments had equal weights and investigating to all, God finally said, “Every sunrise has a sunset and hence I declare, beauty lies beneath the eyes” and disappeared.

Three Perfect Shots – Holi


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Three Perfect Shots.”

Take a subject you’re familiar with and imagine it as three photos in a sequence. Tackle the subject by describing those three shots.

 

Given the prompt, the first thing that came in my mind was Holi celebrations. Holi, in India,  is a spring festival also known as the festival of colors or the festival of love. Best part being i had three perfect Holi celebrations so far and its still very colorful right in front of my eyes.

The celebration was with colleagues, fellow professors. Though the celebrations in between 2010-2014 were good, this was the last one we had as a group. We all moved to different cities in few weeks. This one is special. Very special.
