Hindu Temple Of Greater Chicago

A place ,
where your soul can rest in peace;
away from
the rest of noisy world.

Felt serene,
 bound all ataraxis threshold.
Things do exist,
 beyond you and me.
Supreme power showering their blessings,
take out your hands to grab it.

Felt magnetized;
Now I realized ,
live today ; forget about the future.
To live life peacefully,
live it to the fullest.
Visit sometimes your heart and soul,
in this mindful world .

I do believe in survival of fittest.
But to be the fittest you must be happy inside,
to survive the highest tide.

QUANDARY of Confused Creature Confuse The World

Let me introduce you all to this quandary of mysteriously confused quirk seahorse makes the world confuse with amazing facts  like this:
1)  Look at this innocent seahorse.......looks are deceptive ...indeed very mysterious.There was a lot of confusion surrounding seahorses quondam and left many unanswered questions. Some books said they were insects, some called them shellfish. Today, we know them as fish-complete fish, with fins, gills and a swim bladder too. In appearance the seahorse is different from other fish, it has a head like a horse, a tail like a monkey, a pouch like a kangaroo and the eyes resemble a chameleon's.


2) Wow....no teeth......don't need toothbrush/dentist .....The food that seahorses eat pass into their digestive systems very quickly as they do not have a stomach and teeth. As the digestion procedure in seahorses is so quick they need to constantly eat to live.


3)Quaintly , Father with motherly superpower......salute them........Seahorses are the only animals in the entire animal kingdom in which the male has babies. The female seahorse deposits the eggs into the male's small pouch, these eggs are then fertilized by the male.Quite versatile they are and blessed with different qualities.

View From My RAM



A view from zoo in chicago clicked in 2006.
I was mesmerized by chirping sounds of birds, it was so calming and soothing .
The view offcourse was anticipitated to be clicked through my camera.
That symphonic ambiance ,that euphony was registered in my mind's RAM[Random Access Memory] (technical term) 4 years back.

Saint Louis Gateway Arch From My Camera

The St. Louis Gateway Arch is an elegant monument to westward expansion in the USA. Located on the banks of the Mississippi River in St. Louis, Missouri, the 630-foot tall stainless steel arch rises above the city skyline. The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial consists of the Gateway Arch, the Museum of Westward Expansion, and St. Louis' Old Courthouse.

Down To Earth Tree

These trees are so down to earth ,they don't ask for big things.
But still people cut them mercilessly.Trees are so kind and hardly expect anything from our breed ,the selfish humans.Even after contributing to nature,to us their is no pride in them .Look how graceful they are .....so down to earth.

MORAL:  Those deserve to be on the top who are instead of their greatness are still down to earth.

DOLPHIN SHOW IN CHICAGO

For the first time I saw dolphin show in Chicago and I was amazed at it.Dolphins were dancing,playing,jumping,at times very naughty, talking to each other by whistling.They cheered the crowd through their somersaults.Those were really trained ones.

QUESTION TO PHOTOGRAPHERS?

I took this photograph in chicago in sept2006 and I am not a professional photographer.Now my question is to all the photographer those knows in and out of photography about the defect visible in this photograph.

SKY TOUCHING BUILDINGS IN CHICAGO

How can you stop yourself from capturing it in your camera once it pleased you to the eternity.I experienced myself mesmerized by the view......it was an eye opening experience to me.It has brisk flavour in it ,its freshness.....so delightful .You don't want to blink you eyes when you come across such a view.Still my eyes are sparkling during posting it and those moments I am cherishing through blogging.

Peace Vs No Peace

Nature is peeping my soul for peace.
I am completely seized.
No movement no complains,
no heart burn no chest pain.
So relaxed today I feel,
like top on my heel.
When nature is so beautiful,
Why people belongs to it are horrible?
Why to ruin such beauty ?
Why to destroy such peace?
Digging earth,cutting beloved trees,
you have brutal killer spree.





Now their is no peace.
I am completely seized.
My mind is pondering 
and complaining.
My heart is burning with pain.
Feeling so disgusted,
human race must be tested
and quested.

GOODBYE NIAGRA FALLS

Felt bad to say goodbye to Niagra Falls as it was my best experience to ''admire natural and heavenly beauty''  of life till date.

Rhythm Of Niagra Falls

A strange kind of music I felt in those falls,
jhan-jhan-jhan rhythm it follows,
wow..
What a feel,
which no one can steal,
its my zeal.
Rhyming fall was a bliss to me,
thrill is my key.
Never ever saw nature on its knee.

Mother EARTH


I am mother EARTH,
gave you birth.


Don't kill me,exploit me,
hurt me.
By cutting trees,
you are cutting my fingers.
Don't forget I taught you how to linger.




Pollution is making my blood black,
My body is about to slack.




You destroyed my mountain,
to make your ways.
To me , you are fake.


Making airport underwater,
like cutting my throat.
To you it might be an achievement,
to me it is displacement.


You gave me scars all over,
I have been crying so far, but you never bother.


See I am dying.......
My birds stop flying,
my fishes are incapacitated,
nature feels precipitated.


Tsunami,Katrina,Nargis,Sichuan,
expressed my belligerence.


I am suffocated with pain.
My humility,blazon out,
getting me delirious.


It never affected you,
but I am.
After all I am your mother,
you creeper.


I am loosing myself,
I gulp.
You squeezed all my pulp.
You wounded me,
you slaughterer.


Don't you know?
If I die,
You neither will be alive.


Save me for yourself either,
you filthy creature.

VOICE AGAINST DOWRY

किसने बनाई है?
एक और नारी की बलि दी है समाज ने
उसका शोषण किया था हमने आपने,

आखिर वह भयंकर खेल को रचा कीने
कहते है यह सृष्टि इश्वर ने रचाई है

तो क्या यह प्रथा इश्वर ने बनाई है
जिसने भी बनाई है,आज मैं उससे कुछ पूछना चाहती हूँ

क्यूँ किया जाता है नारी का शोषण
जब उसे देवी मन जाता है?

क्यों उसे जूती व पैरो की धूल मानकर अपमानित किया जाता है?
कहते है देवी के चरणों में स्वर्ग होता है
तो फिर क्यों उसे जुल्म के आगे झुकना होता है?

यह नियम बताओ ,क्यों सिर्फ नारी पर लागु है?
क्यों शुरू से नारी को पराया माना जाता है

नारी के साथ शादी में दहेज़ क्यों दिया जाता है?
यह सौदा तो बिलकुल गलत किया जाता है
सब कुछ उन्हें फ्री में ही मिल जाता है

पर असंतोषी लोग फिर  भी नारी की भेट चढाते है
लक्ष्मी की पूजा में लक्ष्मी को ही जलाते है

मत भूलो जो दीपक घर में रौशनी फैलता है
कभी वो दीपक घर को जला भी सकता है

इस आग को आगे बढ़ने से रोकना होगा
नहीं तो जल्द ही समाज आग की
भयंकर दहेज़ प्रथा की लपेटो में होगा

HITTING THE CONSCIOUS OF TERRORIST

किसने फैलाई ये आग
तुमने मैंने या हमने लगा दिया ये दाग

तुम जैसे लोग धरती पर बोझ है
जो अपने स्वार्थ के लिए खून करते रोज़ है

तुम्हे किसी का खून बहाने का कोई अधिकार नहीं है
क्युकी तुमने खुद अपना खून किसी के लिए बहाया नहीं है

हिंसा से किसी का क्या भला हुआ है
जो आज तुमने ये मार्ग चुना है

शायद तुम सबका बुरा चाहते हो
इसलिये तुम किसी को विधवा ,तो किसी को अनाथ बनाते हो

तुमने बहुत लोगो का खून किया है
पर तुम्हे याद नहीं है की तुमने रोज़ अपनी आत्मा व अपने ज़मीर का खून किया है

अगर तुम पूरी तरह से राक्षश नहीं बने हो तो
अपनी इंसानियत का परिचय दो

तुमने जितने परिवारों को तोडा है
आज तुम उन्हें जोड़ने का प्रयास करो

फिर देखो जो खुसी तुम्हे हिंसा से नहीं मिल पाई थी
वो तुम्हे कितनी आसानी से मिल जाएगी

जो आग तुमने फैलाई थी,उस आग से तुम आज आतंक को जला दो
अपने दमन से यह बदनुमा दाग तुम आज मिटा दो
