If you follow my insta stories you probably noticed that I have been working on a big canvas painting. This art work is for a Japanese restaurant opening soon in China. Here is one of the very first draft done for this project.
When you keep walking
The structures arise
Some of it reveals
Other is exposed
Some of it magical
Others the mere thought
Where walls are home
And silence the member
Where greys are mysteries
And darkness the answer
Where sounds from railings
Call you often
Where past flashes back things
And you cry often
A structure of horror
Or a masterpiece of art
Would you dare to think
What if you were at the brink?

If you want a life you don’t currently live, you’ve got to do something you don’t currently do! My little thought for the weekend, comfort zones are there to contain you. What are you going to do this year that’s different?

Ever pondered what is that eccentric factor which made them eligible for living their lives in such magnificent palaces?
Probably the one which entitled us with living these travels spaces and exploring such masterpieces!
Dont you wish they had known that one day their mighty homes would become our narrow escapes?
but would they have known that one day we will be finding our escapes lost in the cobwebs of dead humans inside and working machines outside.
This magnanimity, haughtiness and rich glory had its roots in us even now and then! Travel to make a difference and signify your prestige.
I have had my share of stillness, an obedient childhood and eventually a job
Not any longer, its time it has to be u, me and the bounty across
I have had my share of social and financial limitations
Not any longer, I want to marry the freedom from responsibilities and expectations you can bless me with
I have had my share of a normal life
Not any longer, I need a dose of adventure, a ride of topsy turvy curves and a thirst quenching adrenaline rush to satisfy my wanderlust
I have had my share of weekend escapes
Not any longer, I dream of an escape as a free bird with wings of desires. Days of marvels and nights of stargazes!
Traveling is a syndrome
An addiction so strong
Walk, stop, turn around
Deep dig the sights surround
The happiness I cared for
Is right there I came for
Perfection is a hilly home
All the way to the top
The beauty that surrenders
The heart that renders
The possession to fall for
Is perfect one I wished for
Oblivion has nothing to perform
Deal is of the aware form
Where magical is the morning
Even nights have a beginning
A life so worthy of
Is the prayer I asked for
Childhood imaginations are funny, yet they are the only truths we believe at that time.
There was a time when I used to think that these elegant structures just existed in the social studies books and a little later I started to believe that foreign countries are the real house to such classy sophistications.
But my journey as a traveler taught me that such marvels are not defined by their locations, rather by their magnificence. You can find them at a corner of a street, at the country outskirts or even at a Mall road.. just like I did!
The picture perfect illumination of lights and the just-cleaned surroundings by the rain made the colonial structure perfect to be captured and my childhood fantasy came true, exactly as I had seen it in the books and truly as I had imagined it in the foreign countries.
Some sights pacify you, others give you the pleasure. But this was my pacifying pleasure!
