I walk a lonely road.

 I walk a lonely road
I was just roaming around inside the Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace) Jaipur and then I suddenly saw this lonely cloud, there was no other cloud on the entire sky. At first look I thought that he is lost and he would be scared.  So I thought to comfort him, but after we talked a while I found out that he is a Lonely traveller who is visiting Jaipur and he enjoys travelling alone. I informed him about some of the tourists spots in Jaipur and clicked his pic.

A Feather.

A feather is lighter than your dreams and stronger than your determination. Not everyone in this world can understand the beauty and tenderness of a feather. I think to understand a feather completely you should have gone through a, sad ended but passionate love story.

I found this feather at Smriti van – Jaipur. Just looking at the way this feather was romancing around with the leafs, air and sunrays was divine feeling. In this pic I tried to capture some of that romance.

Smile of a child.

I was just walking in one of the streets of old Jaipur with camera in my hand and I saw this girl sitting on a counter of a small shop. Old Jaipur is very densely populated area, there are small shops and mostly everyone knows everyone who lives nearby.

I was walking on the other side of the street and saw her she was having a conversation with a guy next to him. She saw me and gave a smile and then again she got busy in her conversation with a smiling face. Smile is always contagious and if the smile is of a child then I will call it heavenly. I started smiling too and a quotation which I had read once just flashed in my mind. 

"It was one of those fine little love stories that can make you smile in your sleep at night."

I got in position and took this shot.

Pyau wali budhi amma.

In Hinduism people have this belief that soul reincarnates again and again on earth until it attain the perfection and then it reunites with its source the ‘Supreme’, this is also known as way to Moksha. 

There is also a shlok in Gita about it.
वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णाति नरोऽपराणि।
तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णान्यन्यानि संयाति नवानि देही।।

Meaning :- As a man discards old cloths and wears new cloths, the same way soul also discards old bodies and wears new ones.

In India people have this belief that if they serve water to thirsty they will improve their Karma and will move towards Moksha. You will find many of these kinds of pyaus all around in India where you will generally see old people serving water to the thirsty. They also believe that by doing this they will get blessings and have a better next Life.

Once on a Sunday afternoon me and one of my friend we were just wandering around in Kishanpol Market, Jaipur and he got thirsty. He saw this pyau nearby and went to fetch some water. That day I was bit blue, I saw this old lady sitting inside a small pyau and giving free water to the thirsty people and in return expecting that she will have a better next life by doing this. Her belief on Karma gave me something to think and I took this pic.
