life is beautiful.. , Marina Beach Chennai India 2006

Making promising India more promising is that they have heathier poplution profile
compared to other developed or developing countries like Europe, Japan, US or Korea etc.
They have lot more young people who study hard and work diligently for their brighter future.

Happy new year and good luck guys~~ !

How sweet are the hopes and the pleasures of youth,
Ere misfortune has blighted their springs to the heart,
Ere the seeds of suspicion, and envy, and art,
Have supplanted the feelings of candour and truth!

In life's joyous morning, how glowing, how bright,
Are the dreams of the future--by Fancy inspired!
Like bubbles, that ere they are form'd have expired,
So vanish its sorrows, as transient, as light.

But soon, oh! too soon, must these feelings decay,
The storms of the world they can never survive;
And alas! when once gone they can never revive
To soothe or to brighten life's desolate way!

palm trees on the scene.., Chennai Express India Summer 2006

A Moments Indulgence

I ask for a moment's indulgence to sit by thy side.
The works that I have in hand I will finish afterwards.

Away from the sight of thy face my heart knows no rest nor respite,
and my work becomes an endless toil in a shoreless sea of toil.

Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs; and
the bees are plying their minstrelsy at the court of the flowering grove.

Now it is time to sit quite, face to face with thee, and to sing
dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure.

.. Rabindranath Tagore

I'm sure that I was really lucky to have this kind of beautiful landscape of rural India
while running fast in the express train.. of course with the aid of my telescope lens..  :-)

life is beautiful.. , Chennai-Express India Summer 2006

Certainly because I don't have any connection with the living creature on this meadow
I have no other filters of thought other than just murmuring.. oh.. beautiful.. so peaceful..

My Chennai-Express was running with its maximum speed
when the train was traversing the Southern Western terrain of grasses and red soil in India.

Shepherds and the cows were standing firmly and proudly on earth.
And the scene made me feel that I was a man from quite different world far from here.
Indeed.. I was a man from the jungle of full of concrete, plastic, indulgence and greed..

As I saw the cows playing in the water I felt so cool and even purified.. :p

snowflake dynamics.. awesome!! , Toronto Dec 15 2010

Whether I'm moving or the snowflakes are moving along with the air pressure..
it doesn't matter to me as an observer.
The beauty of violent pattern of the flakes looked awesome as my vehicle got more speed.. :p

Campus under the full moon, U of Toronto Dec 20 2010

Chapman Stick - Heartstrings - Pachelbel's Canon in D

There was a full moon casting its white pale light over the beautiful campus.

I really like to stroll around the campus in the night watching the trees and old buildings
under the moon light as well as with the artificial lights on the ground.
