Right Brain Fix

Of late, the desire to be a musician or a writer, or perhaps a photographer has been gripping me with an intensely overwhelming sense of passion.

Governed, boxed, ruled and most certainly blocked by a rigid analytically and logically driven left brain, I'm struggling hard to break out of the impasse, activate my right brain and step into a world of unlimited depths, exploration and mystic journeys - which I now seek so much to do!

I certainly will need to get my act together and envision a side of me that I haven't yet been and create a path which I hope to walk through and take a leap into that other world.

One life, after all..........need a right brain fix, real soon! :-)

Crusted in Canvas

Art is a wonderful expression, not just of creativity, but of life itself.

Forever in awe of this great wonder and greatly appreciative of people who possess this great gift, my senses were treated exquisite when I visited the Jehangir Art Gallery a few days ago.

Stepping into another world altogether, one so surreal, so full of expression and evoking powerful emotions, nothing could perhaps equate the outcome of the experience. For me, it was quite like reading pages of a very well written book - with a whole lot of meaning and perspectives that were unique yet sometimes very subtle.

Back home, I found myself floating in a world crusted in canvas, unable to let go of the wonder that had struck me that evening.

They say all destinations lead to the heart - mine is no different!

Faces in the Crowd

Two faces, a reasonable crowd, in a different city and 18 years later - what do you think would have happened?

Instant recognition!

V rang me up a few days ago mentioning he was here and I insisted we meet despite his hectic schedule - a first time meeting that would happen in 18 years, after school. We hadn't seen each other since 1994 but managed to stay in touch.

A brief lunch, recollections galore, memories unlimited and some thoughts later, the whopping gap seemed to vanish.

18 years later, nothing has changed! The same sense of warmth and camaraderie prevails with a many a nostalgic moment from back then, when life seemed less complicated and more blissful.
