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 satidfaction 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

COLLAGE

Life is a collage – collage of memories – good and bad, happy and sad much like the pictures we capture. Then only the purpose of life is understood, it just needs to have the perfect balance in color and contrast.

Here are some pics from the weekly theme Collage

My daughter would always create a card with a message written all by herself on the occasion of Mother’s and Father’s day. On one of the Children’s Day she made me feel that we should also create a card for her as it attached more value and sentiments than the gifts. As I know my art skills very well, so I have been creating collage for her on every Children’s day, here is one of them:

Bridge

Bridge

For me bridge is something that provides a connect between two physical or imaginary things, they might be living or non-living. It takes you back to time – so a song is a bridge in your life.

Here are a few pics for the bridge theme, hope you all will like it

Real Life Heroes – Putting their life at stake for others

I could not resist myself from pulling my car by the side of the road (the famous NH-24 which is always crowded)  to capture some pics of this man’s work while returning from my work to home. I was stunned to see this person’s job – fearless, bold and requires a lot of courage and talent.

High Tension towers were being installed and new wires were laid to carry power from the power stations to the city.  There are no covers too at the ground just in case he tripped and the rope fastened to him broke(although it was a very thick one so very thin chances of the same, however accidents happen).  It was almost dusk and he had to complete his work, move towards the tower(he was in the middle) and make his way down from the tower. He had been working up there since long and given the soaring temperature of 42 C it was really a brave-hearts work. I wish I could have his name and credit him in this post.

Still way to go and come down – he has a lot of stamina. Real Life Miniature Photography

My heart goes out to salute all those brave hearts who have such job profiles and yet they perform beyond expectations, complaints and any rewards. The matter of fact is that they are not highly paid individuals and yet they are part of a risk affair. God bless such people and give them peace and happiness in life who work their lives out to enlighten others life.

This also highlights another strange contrasting aspect of our social life:

Some pay to have adventure and fun in their life, while for a few it is the way of life, only means of survival – their bread and butter. 

Looking at the photographs I am sure you must have got an idea of the height of the wire he has been working on. What I can guess is 200-250 fts.

Strangest moment was when slowly the passersby stopped watching me click and one of them asked me “Is that a mad person who has climbed up?”. I did not know how to react and had a feeling of how ignorant this person is, I just smiled back to him.

Those who keep on complaining about their life and job try changing gears with this guy who plays with danger and his life in every moment he works.

God bless you all, stay happy keep smiling and Enjoy. A BIG Kiss 🙂

Earth Day – Paint the Earth Green

Lets us spread the word and awareness to do our bit to protect the only living place on Milky Way and even beyond our galaxy, at least that’s what I know.

It is the only planet which provides us with all resources to survive, let us value and educate specially our children and do our bit to save a bit for them. Everything will be trash if we deplete the natural resources – so reserve, conserve and spend wisely and value what you have been blessed with.

(Pic Courtesy: Concept suggested by my daughter during our tour a few days back, she spotted this small sapling and asked me to click while she shot with her point and shoot)

Hope we have abundant greenery, lushing and gushing rivers, green valleys with flowers and snow clad mountains.

Happy Earth Day to all.

Have a wonderful Saturday and Sunday and spread love 🙂

Hari Om, Jai Shree Krishna.
