All work and no play!
But we did have our share last weekend when me and Divsy went to lansdowne - can I ever forget the awesome weather and the fog setting in. I am also very happy about three things:
1. I visited 3 very famous temples of my land.
2. Clicked temples once again. (I so love clicking anything to do with God)
3. 13 abstract frames - out of the blue. I think I want to give a pat on my back for this sudden creativity. I am happy with what I got.
But I am not indulging in photography for some days - got loads of work on my plate. Guess what, I am actually enjoying it. I hardly feel like being connected to Net.
Oh and by the way, Mili is enjoying her stay at nani-house...I and manish can hardly wait to get her back - Miss you girlie. :)

"Step into my shoes and then see things" - how often have we heard this. Pretty much every time when we have a disconnect with others. What does it really mean? Change roles and see things from other's perspective. Well, right.
Not really easy. To step into someone else's shoes, you gotta take out your own first. Which essentially means you need to leave your comfort, ego, perceptions, thoughts and expressions to be able to relate to what the other person is feeling or thinking to trying to say. Do we listen? Do we understand? Do we make an effort? Been thinking...
More often than not, we try to step into other's shoes wearing our own - which rather than helping the other person almost suffocates him/her. We try to get into their situations with all of our perceptions and thoughts and ifs and buts...resulting in a total chaos for self and them. Wish we operated differently...
P.S: Mili's red pair that I absolutely love - I wish I coud step into these :)

....Obstacles come your way and reactions of various types block your way - its the breakthrough factor that counts.
'Every behaviour of yours is a reflection of the 'principles' you have set in your lives'. I quite believe in that. You need to constantly be aware of the principles that govern your life. And your beliefs. You can chose to be negative, or you can chose to be positive. You can let situations impact you or you can chose to take control of the situations. Often times 90-10 rule helps. 10% of life is made up of what happens to you (on which you have NO control). But, 90% of life is decided by how you react (which only YOU control). How very true.
My boss told me about the 90-10 rule and ever since then he has given me situations where I could implement it. I am glad he took time off to make me understand the apply it in my life. It works. try it out.

...a very very long time. Was on a photography break as well as blogging break. Somehow I seem to have lost interest in both.
Was it a phase? I hope this is a phase.
So much has happened since I last left from here - no start or end to conclude - life goes on. It most definitely does. I will not get into the eventualities of what it does to you. :) Hota hai, jindagi hai. Chalne do.
Work front - full fledged. I see myself dwelving deeper into the project. Thanks to my boss, he helped me in getting into the hang of things. Guess that was one thing really needed for me to come up the curve. Not perfect yet..but atleast I make an effort to be one. That is the key for me. Phase 2 begins and simultaneously Phase 3 assessment is going on. Important to handle it carefully. So I will.
Photography - pretty much a break from flickr. After my pushkar clicks, I did not touch my camera. But yes, I did click random flowers during my Subatu trip - a pretty refreshing trip it was. Pleasant, quite, peaceful. ben experimenting with lightroom for a while now - initially it irritated me, and then it really interested me.
Music - majorly on Trance these days...actually a mix of trance and techno. I am now planning to sink myself in Linking Park for sometime - I hated it when I first heard the band...somehow sounded rappy to me..discussed with a friend and cared to give it another ear...and man, I liked what I heard....
Next week I travel to Jaipur again - this time more than photography, I think I will indulge in a bit of shopping...just wish to change my routine a bit...being back old me...with a dash of the newie me...!
So long...god bless.
