Solitary : A photostory on human emotions at SREENIViews

“As soon as we are alone,…inner chaos opens up in us. This chaos can be so disturbing and so confusing that we can hardly wait to get busy again. Entering a private room and shutting the door, therefore, does not mean that we immediately shut out all our inner doubts, anxieities, fears, bad memories, unresolved conflicts, angry feelings and impulsive desires. On the contrary, when we have removed our outer distraction, we often find that our inner distraction manifest themselves to us in full force. We often use the outer distractions to shield ourselves from the interior noises. This makes the discipline of solitude all the more important.”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen, Making All Things New and Other Classics

On SREENIViews photoblog – Being abreast with the world!…

Human being has always been curious. Curious about knowing what is happening around the world. Who is behind this story? What could the response now be? Why is it behaving so? why does it look so? what is working as a catalyst? How will the world respond? The questions on who, what, where, when, why and how of every happening are interesting. We want to be aware, analyze with whatever data we have, create our own perceptions and take those decisions….

The messages went across the world using birds – mostly pigeons. Then came the printing press and slowly newspapers came into being. Then television stepped into world to beam films that made knowing the world more interesting and visually appealing. Then came along other forms of media like tapes, CDs, DVDs that made sharing easy. As the world moved into twenty first century, world wide web reached out everything to our desks. The world is at our finger tips. Anytime anywhere is the choice we all have. Now we can peep into any country, city or a colony from the sky, drive through a road looking all around sitting at our desk, even appreciate the art pieces in a museum! The future seems to be even more exciting with possibilities….

For most of us, the early morning cup of coffee with a newspaper in hand is a bliss! Each one eagerly awaits for the newspaper boy to through it every morning and scurry to get it. It is no different in a city, small towns or villages. Every curious human being quenches his thirst of catching up with the world, through the newspapers…..

On my Photoblog : Work is worship! so they say…..

Whether 19 or 90, the people who excel are those who give everything to whatever they do.

In my journey of life, while on work, I have been very fortunate to have had the camera by my side to capture a great number of people, eminent and also commoners, who are always giving 200% in every aspect of their life. For each one of them, the cause is the almighty and their work is worship! And yes, for a few, worshiping is the work! Though I have been collating this collection, I realized the MAY DAY is apt, to pay tribute to the worker in us!

“We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.”
— Earl Nightingale

On my Photoblog – “Everyone has a story….” : A Visual Poetry!

Every human being is excited about sharing a story gathered or an episode that he or she has been part of.

The journey of humankind in itself is a fascinating one and what would it be like to have a story from each of the six billion :With such a diversity –  roots of origin, culture, language – and the folklore that gets passed on, apart from the events each one is part of! What a documentation it will be.

All those places that I have been part of since childhood, have changed dramatically over the last couple of decades. The visual captures over years of the same place does not have any trace of the past. With this oral story telling tradition, a lot of emotions gets retained in the human folklore.
