STRUCTURES

Structure – sometimes ignored and at times overrated, but they always add an amazing element of beauty around us.

Here are some of the pictures for the WPC theme structure.

Satisfaction

Satisfaction for me is somewhat related to passion, the more passionate you are for a particular work, hobby, game, activity the more energy & enthusiasm you put in it and completing it gives you a bigger sense of satisfaction and rewarding experience, esp. to your internal self – more than any material gain. If your passion is your work so you can reap even material gains and you do it with your 200%.

I love telling small tales – So once a person was asked – What do you do for a living?

The answer was, I spend time with my family, love to do photograph, cook and eat food. Out of curiosity the person asked again – I mean, what do you do to earn money.

Oh ok, I work as a consultant but that’s not what I would call living. At the end everyone does not end up doing the work which is also their passion and that’s fair enough. You can do that as a past time activity.

As for me the most satisfying feeling in the world is the quenching my thirst with chilled water, the blessed feeling I have after it. It goes up-to my soul. Then there is my passion for photography which makes me happy. Spending time with family and watching your kids grow up is another feeling, who needs anything else in the world 🙂

Feeling of Satisfaction is very important in life and nothing should stop you from completing your work with quality and precision until you are satisfied – that’s the connect with passion and sense of satisfaction.

Here are some of the pictures which co-relate to the passion and the satisfaction behind it

Eat to Live or Live to Eat

Do you eat to live or love to eat? Will you travel to enlighten your taste buds.

We (calling out all who are reading this) are all fortunate in this world to have food at our disposal.  I am thankful that I get to eat in all quarters.

Being from India which offers a diverse eating option in every mile you travel it is sad that I am not a foodie, well I admit I take what is offered and don’t go for a food hunt spree.

Delicious Parantha with a lot of home made cream

 

Traditional food served in plates made out of leaves and a canopy arrangement for dining out.

Travel the distance

However I will definitely not travel for food, may be I am not that passionate.

I say very often that there is nothing like water after having some and a few have started to like it. Nothing quenches our thirst and longing when you are badly in need of some water.

Let us thank all the people involved in doing the most serious business around the world – “Cultivating Food” and helping millions of us alive. Seriously I am thankful and respectful to every farmer, dairy worker or anyone who is connected in bridging the gap from the farm to the our arm. We owe a big thank you to everyone out there.

Enjoy and lots of love, kisses and blessings

Survival In Captivity…

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

I used to maintain a book on quotations, metaphors and idioms when I was a kid, there was no internet kinda stuff.

One of the idioms that pops up is this one:

While others live to eat, I Eat to live. 

Eat to Live – Basically it means that eating should not be one of your favourite hobby, one should eat healthy and survive. At least I am not to finicky when it comes to eating. As a matter of fact we need to eat to survive else we succumb.

Live to Eat- on the other hand refers to the fact that eating for you is something beyond just survival.

Given the fact of captivity, do I need to bother what I have been given to eat once taken captive, still given the choice I would go with rice, tea, pulses, egg and bread.

In this age I believe having internet access will be much of a boon when in captivity. we can keep posting our daily update on social media.

The above image is from a country side restaurant in India when we were en-route to Agra to see the beautiful Taj Mahal. These are called Dhabas in India and they serve some real good traditional Indian mouth watering and relishing dishes.

So next time you come to India make sure you visit one.
