Wah Kya Freshness Hai...

The last weekend, 26th Jan'08, I ventured out to Lal Bagh early morning. Since there was a flower exhibition going on in the glass house as a part of Republic Day celebrations, I was fortunate to take a few pics. Though I had seen exhibitions of this sort before, so I just wanted to capture, the water drops or the dew drops that ornament, the green environ around as well as the freshness in the air.

Stepping into the morning sun, breathing out freshness, breathing out new life, an assured welcome relief from the regular days, when the eyes are stuck in the traffic jams awaiting the traffic lights to signal to proceed, nostrils fighting against the dust, and noise and commotion all around.

Sometimes morning freshness can be equated to warmth. The mild wind on the face when one runs or walks hastily, air smelling of freshness and change, leaves falling like old hoarded comforts.


This is near the Lal Bagh lake. As few visitors were feeding these fishes, they had all foregathered near one corner of the lake. Too many fish, too little space to shake their fins with each competing for its share of food.



At present, I am reading a book titled Umrao Jan Ada by Mirza Hadi Ruswa and one of the verses from that book by Shaikh Sahib goes like this:
The heart shunned by the beauty's gaze is well:
Those goods no one can buy have quality.


Cornucopia of water droplets aka pearls of nature.



Ni, who accompanied me, also had captured some fascinating moments, that day. Thanks for your company and more pics coming along.

Keep reading and remain connected.

my! what lovely pics, sri GVK! you must send them as entries into a photography competition! your photos can be winners.

as i was viewing the photos i was transported to a world of nature that is becoming so alien to bangalore now. thanks for capturing them.

and the lake and the fish reminded me of the tunga river at sringeri where hundreds of similar fish gather to jump up and collect food (kadalepuri) offered by the visitors.

it feels very good!

the river name at sringeri should read as tungabhadra - a confluence of tunga and bhadra rivers.
