OCCHI al Lago di Avigliana

TORINO NELLA RETE

La QUIETE ASSOLUTA domina, in prossimità del lago Grande di Avigliana. Così assoluta che si sente perfettamente la paperella che nuota a parecchie decine di metri dal punto dove cerco di fermarmi per riprendere qualche … ma come si fotografa un lago? Vengono le stesse immagini del mare eppure al mare si respira un’aria completamente diversa! Al mare può essere pieno inverno, ma i piedi nell’acqua li metto sempre … qui al lago il 5 settembre 2020 con una temperatura ben sopra i 20 gradi, non immergo nell’acqua nemmeno la punta del dito! Eppure ci sono persone che non solo si fanno il bagno, in questo lago, ma indossano tute che sembrano astronauti per immergersi ed esplorare i suoi fondali!!

I locali, non molto numerosi, sono però tutti ben illuminati. Le persone passeggiano sul “lungo lago” proprio come al mare: mangiando gelato, guardando telefonini e sognando ad occhi aperti…

ELEPHANT MANDALA ART

Illustrated by Hannah

Who doesn’t love a cute elephant or two? Drawn onto a canvass in a fun, mandala style – yes please!

In many cultures, the elephant is considered to be a symbol of strength, wisdom and tranquillity. Being of Indian heritage, it is safe to say that the elephant makes up a large part of the décor in a typical Asian house, so my mum couldn’t wait to get her hands on this one. And yes, I was after another excuse to get out the Micron fine liner pens (don’t judge me!).

For this piece, I started off with a pencil sketch on a canvass; for an additional element of cuteness, I included a baby elephant, tied to the mother’s tail for a mother-baby bond. I then proceeded to add the outline and detailing in fine liner pen.

Important to a mandala piece is the use of geometric shapes, such as…

A lot of people have put their heads down in disbelief thinking that the current situation will never get better. Some think that they don’t possibly have a future. People are worried about living, existing and moving forward.

Careers, aspirations and dreams have moved away from reality for some. Some even think that dying during the pandemic is not a bad option at all as they don’t want to taste these bitter days.Everyone comes into a conclusion that the new normal will never be the same as old one.

Then there are people who commit suicide without giving a try. Even now, a lot of them still fight on the basis of cast, colour and creed. In between, politicians fill their own pockets.New laws are being passed.A lot of things are happening in between this total fuss.

Who will end up as survivors ?

This world is for those who…

The epitaph..

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE DO WITH IT—-THAT CAN BE THE PROBLEM!

Today, I would like to share about one of the biggest ironies that ever took place ; The man who invented dynamite and several other arms and explosives is the one behind the Nobel prize which even includes an award for peace.I am talking about none other than Alfred Nobel.Alfred’s dad was involved in a business which mainly dealed with demolition of old buildings and houses and selling the remaining parts and scraps.Alfred was a chemist and he wanted to help his father in his business which ended up in the invention of dynamite. It was a great invention during that time as it help fasten many kinds of demolition works. But it’s a human instinct to misuse everything, the same happened to dynamite. Theives, criminals, antinationals and terrorists misused it to the maximum.

Alfred was a pacifist and never believed in war and violence. There is a small story…

Too Much Of A Bad Thing

A ANTI-BACTERIAL BALLAD-!!!!! ❤

yaskhan

I write an antibacterial poem
On an antiseptic page
My pen metaphysical
A library of blue black ink
Fading into sepia of cornucopia
I hold my own hand
Fingers restless 
I clasp, unclasp slowly
In a forgotten time
The smell of sanitizer
Stretches the length of my breath
Mumble of masked words
Mouthed in a wail of release
Fertile eyes turn rubble
In the stillness of silence
Unsure of speech..

Corona is a loner, it would not die for me
But it has put the world on hold
On bated breath that fails to rise
An ancient disease brought into a new-age
Sitting on chests of men , with a violence bringing oblivion of death  
Science has kept us  waiting while the world is on a death-wish.....
