On paper cloudsAnd cotton windsDreams danceOn wishful wingsOf burnt sunsetsMelting sherbetsBerrylicious stainsOn azure vistasSilken summonsFrom opal skiesWith fluid colorsA painted sunrise
Traveling unrestrainedThe vast wildernessFloating on cloudsMaking mistakesCapturing the blissOf throwing careTo the whistling winds!All our messy livesSeeking happiness!Failing to beholdNature that throbsWith the powerOf just being!
Khushwant Singh observed, “Most men and women who deny God are to my knowledge more truthful, helpful, kinder and more considerate in their dealings with others that men of religion.” He was trying to probably say that lack of bigotry, fanaticism, and single-minded devotion to a God or a religion made people more open to accept the concepts of brotherhood and goodness of the human.

While the web series and the book are not connected in any way, as a viewer and reader, I found a common theme. The inherent violent, ratherContinue reading “Finding Our Religion”
This lush photograph was taken by me in April 2019 during a walk in front of the Hyatt House in Parsippany, New Jersey. It is a reminder of how things have changed in the past one year.
