E very blade of grass has its angel
that bends over it and whispers,
“grow , Grow “
~~ The Talmud
A child said : ‘ what is the grass ? ‘
Fetching it to me with full hands.
How could I answer the child ? I do not
Know what it is any more than he.
…grass is probably a good thing ,
providing a home for crickets and ladybirds
and other small creatures.
It wouldn’t be much fun living on a planet where grass could not grow….

As the Indian Legend goes;
Whisper a wish to a butterfly,
since a butterfly can make no sound,
the butterfly cannot reveal….
The wish to anyone but the great spirit.
In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom,
The great spirit always grants the wish…
So , according to legend, by making a wish & giving
The butterfly its freedom…
The wish will be taken to the heavens

As I walked on my way, I realized that it is not only the sun
which can make a day much brighter.
How is it that we deny ourselves an inner sun, shinning through the silent words of
Even your inner colors change as the patterns of
your inner self dance to a new rhythm in life.
This must now be part of your daily movement: to recognize, greet, and
listen to all forms of nature, from the lowly moss to the greatest tree.
All share in he one life , all dance to tha same rhythm , all blend
their notes in the song of the universe.
We rejoice, our brother, for soon that song will blend into your pattern of color ,
and the doors of a new and deeper sharing will be thrown wide open…
You listen to the silent song of my

I always wanted to photograph a Tusker in rain……
early morning ride….
we were just entering the forest through the bamboo thickets…..when
we heard the sound of bamboo cracking….& the bamboo near the road swayed….
It was raining…
and I was praying….
the camera was ready…and we saw this handsome fellow emerge …
In the forest …

all at once…
“…….the painter is in love with colours,
The poet is in love with words…….”
and I was in love with this gentle gaint…
” The state of mind of the photographer while
creating is a blank….(but ) it is a very active state
of mind really, a very receptive state of mind, ready
at an instant to grasp an image, yet with no image
pre-formed in it at any time. “
