I am free

I am currently at the 'I am free' sort of moments. I feel no obligations, no responsibilities, no strong emotions, no anxiety.

Life after this, seems full of choices.

I can decide to be in this comfort zone as much as I want to.  Or I can tear this all apart and jump back in. Or slowly play around.

It is super helpful to remind myself that 'life is short'.

It is a choice.

I am at this sweet unknown period of not knowing what to do.

Action solves uncertainty, ambiguity and anxiety.

"With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or whatever will bewilder me.
Whatever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going..."

ರಾತ್ರಿಯ ಕನಸುಗಳು,
ಹಗಲಲ್ಲಿ  ಕಳೆದುಹೋಗುವುವು.

ಹಗಲಿನ ದಿನಕನಸುಗಳು
ರಾತ್ರಿಯ  ದುಃಸ್ವಪ್ನಗಳಾಗುವುವು. 

ಈ ಆಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಗೆಲುವಿಲ್ಲ
ಆಡದಿರುವುದೇ ಗೆಲುವಿನ ಮಾರ್ಗ!

Oh hi!

Knock, knock!

Is this thing on?

Analog pics

So, quite a while back I "borrowed" this awesome film camera from Uncle of mine.

I've already finished a roll of film, with not so great results. I think I got some 3 or 4 good pics out of that roll.

So, obviously I went and bought another roll, 400 ISO one from FujiFilm. This time I got these results ! Got it developed at GK Vales, who didn't bother cutting the each print properly.

Also, I don't have a scanner, hence shot the prints via phone camera. Well. That sucks.

Here it goes -

Umm. That's about it. Pics aren't that great, and I suck at composition.

Oooooooo, Look what I "borrowed" again : -

It is , really

I step out of the house to find some thing to eat. Walk along the footpath towards The Forum. Its about 9 in the evening, traffic full with people desperately trying to find parking. Koramangala main road is full of life. Entire family, friends hanging out on weekend, odd couple trying hard not to overdo their PDA. Roadside dosawallas and paanipuri guys working hard. The veg/non-veg  momo guy trying to make a living. A couple haggling with auto guy. The Delhi boy with his BMW. All the cars and bikes trying claim their piece of road.

I just walk past these people, the chaos, the madness.

Neon lights everywhere. Smell of masala dose from some nearby Shanti Sagar. Empty cellphone show rooms. Airtel office is on its weekly off. Newly opened Van Heusen showroom, can't see any customers inside. The tender coconut guy is done  and closing his business for the day.

The Ganesha temple is all lit up.

As I walk past, a chilly thought runs through my head.

"Fuck, its cold. Should have worn the jacket"

"And like that, poof. He's gone"

Death is beautiful, death is misery. It is a full stop. Nothing beyond. Gone, gone forever. No traces. No funny jokes, none whatsoever.

Death leaves others with puzzle. Some worry, some take it easy.

For some, death of loved ones hits immediately; for some, it takes years. Some move on, some still hang on.

What's next after death, I don't know. It is beautiful, is all I know.

Published, again !

So, Vijaya Karnataka, local Kannada newspaper used one of my pics in their Saturday supplement.

Original pic here:

Onake Abbi Falls 3

My only complaint is they did not attribute it :-(

Earlier case of similar story from Udayavani is here :
I wonder if I can make some money out of these :)
