Threading pictures

How often do we sit in a pensive mood near a brook and reflect on all the things that nature has given us. Isn’t it nice to feel the water flow beneath your feet as you gaze at the wonderful big tree or the colourful trees that keep changing the leaves according to the season.

Isn’t it nice to observe that dandelion bravely standing against the wind.

If you sit close and observe you can see each floret getting swept away by the wind (following the laws of nature for proliferation) with the last floret still clinging on.

But soon this whole earth will turn into an arid desert if we blatantly start cutting the trees to make way for the concrete jungle.

For example the common sparrow is no more common and it is hardly seen now a days, mainly due to the shortage of the natural habitat that it had earlier.

It is about time that we stopped and reflected on our misdeeds of random destruction of nature or a time will come when our great grandchildren will be on their knees praying “give us this day our greenery…….”

We will be able to see and appreciate these parrots only if there are trees.

Jack and Jill would not have gone up the hill if there was no water to fill the pail (and the pail would not have looked so happy)

When we wash our cars with liberal use of water, a little thought can be spared to save water wherever necessary.

Like closing off that tap when the flow of the water is not required.

Or else a day will come when the taps will run dry.

If we want to have food on our table, if we want our children and our grandchildren to enjoy this world, then let us stop making this world a concrete jungle and adapt to the nature and live in harmony with it.

There is no sign board saying “Here is your opportunity” Everyday is an opportunity for us to make this a better place to live.

As they say time is running out and we should do our little bit.

Let us teach our kids to plant trees

It is time we stopped and helped our children to appreciate nature so that when he picks up a camera and clicks, he should be able to say “wow”

Thanks all for the appreciation.

I really enjoy your blogs, don't stop ;)

Very insightful, you're good! I'm more visual than articulate, so you have to tell me thought, I'm sure first was the thesis, then what; did you collect the images first then wrote or wrote first then collected the images? Either ways, I enjoyed reading it, thanks!

Hello! I think so too. very good blog. :). Need to appreciate the beauty around us, and leave it to our children and grandchildren.

it's always nice to take a step back and just take in the scenery!

May 04, 2011


I appreciate this because I have the exact same thoughts. Picking up a camera and taking a day away from everything is therapy for me. But at the same time it's a spiritual journey. To know the intricate detail that nature puts forth is something people all too often overlook. I appreciate my country life for the simple reason that I want my children to be able to appreciate the necessity for preservation and wildlife sanctuary. Thanks for sharing!
