Alis Volat Propriis

Check. \m/

Something I have wanted for a long time, but like I had once told a friend who disapproved of tattoos, "I will never ink something on me if I didn't whole heartedly believe in it." I decided that I wanted this one a long time ago, but somehow I didnt feel like I was there yet. And then, today, I knew I had to get it.

It's Latin for "She flies with her own wings". Ask me what I have learned to value, time and again, more than ANYTHING else after all the struggle, heartbreaks and ups and downs and all the oh-my-god-WTF-is-this-a-fucking-soap-opera? life - without a doubt, its my independence. Being alone, no longer unsettles me, and trust me, that is a HUGE thing for me. So well... I got my second tattoo.. :)

P.S: Give it up for the tattoo guy Robin, who has done one heck of a neat job on it! I. LOVE. IT. :D

P.P.S: Tattoo# 3 remaining for it to get crossed off my list. And I know whats it going to be already.. :)

I ♥ my Nikon!

I think I am officially married to my Nikon. I feel lonely when I am not around / using it. Sigh. True love. :) I take loads of pictures almost everyday, but considering I am my best / worst critic, I don't actually get around uploading any of those pics, because I think they are just OK. :/

Anyways, heres what I took yesterday, which I am pretty pleased with. I have a thing for photographing kids and old people, they ALWAYS look lovely :). Oh, and I also have a thing for black and white. :)

Yesterday  I went to catch a late night show of Yeh Saali Zindagi... which was er... weird! :P Frankly it had way too much foul language and way less .. common sense! Anyway, I started fooling around in the intermission. And this was one particularly hilarious result :D We laughed so much, everyone turned to look what was so funny! :P

I died, waiting for HDFC Life Insurance. :D

Photo taken by Shyam from his iPhone, and those are my most well-worn out pair of favorite Converse sneakers. :) iPhone photography is pretty cool too, right?!

P.S: Adobe. Awesomeness. Period.

Have a photo taken by me published. Check.

I am super duper happy today! 
I get to cross off one important item from my 25 before 25 list. YAY! 

One of the photos that I took, is published in the online showcase called "Platonic Love Stories" at PictoryMag. Its this wonderful site where you can send in your pictures with a story, as relevant to the current showcase. Do check it out :)

My picture is #25, called Sameera. She is this awesome kid I teach at TFI (Teach For India), where I am a volunteer. I wish I could do it full time, but I cant. Someday I hope I can spend all my time, just teaching children like Sameera :) I took loads of pictures in the classroom, and I haven't uploaded any on the photoblog. Planning on uploading them someplace soon. Here's the picture I had sent Pictory - 

She looks so angelic doesn't she? :)

So there I go - 
Have a photo taken by me published. Check. :)
Hoping to have many more in the future :) :)

P.S: That pursed lips look on her face is because she didnt want to smile and show a huge gap in her front teeth :P She had just lost them! :)

I wish I knew how it feels to be free

Did anyone ever notice that most of our life, is just walking down paths unknown? That most of the times, we are treading roads, unsure of what we are looking for. Or for that matter, what we would find, what we hope to find.

We don't know what that walk would turn out to be like. Sometimes it’s like a ride at the amusement park. Funny, hardly any of those rides, those really good ones, could be called amusing, don't you think? So sometimes, that walk turns out to be one heck of an adventure. Sometimes, it turns into a nightmare. Sometimes, it’s like one of those times when the tape gets stuck and keeps replaying the last few seconds, refusing to budge. Sometimes there is that sense of stagnancy. And sometimes there is that feeling of watching sand slip all too quickly through your fingers. Sometimes its pain beyond anything you bargained for, anything anyone ever ought to deserve. Sometimes its ecstasy beyond your wildest dreams.

Is it just me, or it seems those paths choose you, more than you choose them? I think its just me.

It’s one of those paths that I am walking down on. There’s nothing more to say, really. You can’t define yourself unless you walk till the very end of that path, and look back to everything you crossed on your way there.

Up until then, I am just a drifter. Just another wanderer.

P.S: Title doesn't mean anything - those are lyrics of one of my favorite songs.
