Walk in the journey of life - 1


This is my first day in blogging.  I have neither read nor written - ever.  And this I am doing by the constant motivation from my daughter.  She is the one who insisted in doing so.

I have not thought much about what its going to be like.  But I guess, it would be more like walking along with me while I talk.  Please try and read and if possible do give feed back once in a while.  I am not going to write philosophy or theory of every thing or high fundas of life.  Its going to be just about every thing thats going on in my life and my attempts to seek happiness while I walk thru the journey of life.  In some pages its possible that I would have written about you too.

I am in the 50th year of this walk (of life).  There are many ups and downs (so to say).  I have had a fantastic life so far.  And having realised that I am 50, I am in the process of trying to change the perspective of life.  I will make my best efforts to be honest in this blog, share the things I do besides my profession etc.

Hope all of you like it or dislike (the only way I will know is through comments; both: +ive or -ive).

Walk in the journey of life - 2


There is a question I would like to pose for myself and to you all:

When was the last time you did some thing for the first time? What was it?  Be honest and let me know.  This is a question especially for people who are above 40.

You become what you think you are.   If you start thinking that you are old – you become old.  Feeling young or old has a lot to do with your thinking rather than the physical factor.  I know people who are 65 years ‘young’ in age and they behave like a teenager or 25 year person and I also know 25 year ‘old’ people who behave like above 60 years.  What I am trying to tell is that see the sketch attached below, I started in 2001 at Jaisalmer and I completely forgot about it until last week.  I have now completed it last week, while doing so, I traveled back in 2001, became 10 years younger.  I have decided to spend some time on doing things what I love doing and not only for living.  All of us must work for the living – but in the process – we forget to live.

Almost every one would have a camera these days.  Once it gets a little dry (rain), I plan doing a series of photography excursions in the city – exploring Sunday market, early morning vegetable market and flower market – grain market etc.  Would any one want to join?  Do let me know.  We can have a joint exhibition amongst our friends and if there a good response, we also could have it at a city level.  Next year is Ahmedabad’s 500 years, let us know our city better.  Take time out of your busy schedule.  Trust me – it will be a great experience and also you will be doing some thing for the first time.  I will work out program and let you all know.

Please check out the sketch and comment.

See you next week.
