London Bridge

The moment one reaches around london bridge rather than cool breeze he starts thinking about bollywood movies specially SRK kabhi alvida naa kehna or kal ho naa ho. And it’s true I also started feeling the same. 

It was late afternoon we reached to london bridge station and more than anything our eyes were looking where is this scenic building and like giraffe neck we were changing our neck position and finally decided to use Google and followed till it took us over the bridge and the moment we reached their the feeling of being london got completed  as if this was something which never happened in all my past visits to london because it was between Heathrow to Kings Cross to St neots and back forth everyone. I should give credit to my friends and  Nikon camera which gave me motive to move around london this time.

Coming back to london bridge as I said it gives you feeling of SRK movies and his famous positions around the awesome building It gave me same nostalgia . London being a cosmopolitan city and place for young asian couples are the featured everywhere and around Westminster to london bridge it’s fully crowded when weekends start off.

On the far away bridge other side of London bridge with one side sun was setting and Sundays falling over london bridge was giving me wow like feeling as if I achieved something and my grateful desire to be a movie director was giving me kicks to leave my current profession to jump into what I really keep inherent desire and that gave me chance to wash my photography skills on my friends. For next 2- 3 hrs I was a romantic young guy or film photographer who was doing every tits bit to catch moments/picturesque into memories. 

As the sunset was close sky and rays onto the bridge were giving different angles to take snapshots and I being with my friends was in different world. 

This is first ever best outing I had in last 2 years of my international travel because I never made myself out to any sights except to the restaurants for business dinner. Taking time out to roam around london in evening I gave credit to my friends otherwise I would have gotten back to Heathrow and the feeling which I had while visiting london bridge would have been left once again somewhere in my list.

Although it s half hearted visit because it’s a romantic place but still worth paid off . Some of pictures I hit through the deck to fix this moment. 

London bridge yes it is one of the famous spot with its due meaning which we see in bollywood movies. 

London Diary Day 1

Kensington Gardens London.

Saturday night I and my frnds decided to have walk next morning to feel the cool breeze and Sunday london. This was the 2 nd time in London when I thought of going for a walk as parks in London are very beautiful and thoughtfully designed with antique sculptures and in almost all parks a small pond with bird sanctuary are managed. You will see all age group people running or walking to keep them fit. Often I compare that how much different life is in China and india where people get up in the morning to shuffle between morning work preparation and polluted air with candy noise from traffic specially metro’s which except areas near PM house or chankyapuri you will find enriched with forests else all park either you will find people running to fight with lifestyle diseases or preparing army exams. Very less people actually go for morning walk with purpose of being fit. We are habituated to show off that’s why we spent 2 hrs hitting the gym rather walk the talk with nature. 

This is what difference you will find in western countries here people earn to live but we live to earn and it’s not that we cannot have this life but we have raised our desires more than our health and to live life which has made most of the people in Asia suffering from lifestyle diseases and cancer by making body less immune to handle all this.

We only realize essence of life when we grow old and principally think that we have served our responsibilities to the maximum and now is the time to live before we take our last breath with life partner. 
When I see people here I find them mostly more purposeful to live the life without compromising basic necessities. Irony is that which I see from different angles what’s the actual purpose of living for most of the Asians and what they run behind are materialistic pleasures at cost of living the life. 

And we do not deserve these type of parks because we even being more educated will make these park a worst place to walk around no matter amenities are provided or not. Surprisingly the first chapter which is taught in childhood is to clean oneself and environment around but we have learnt only the former one latter one we always blame for authorities who see it’s a regular course of cribs from mango people. 

As being indian The purpose of jotting few words and some pictures of park here is do we ever think of making parks like these in common and with civic sense of making them clean to show our responsibilities towards mother Earth.
Many more will come in following days 

The Poor Heart

Heart physiologically an important organ of body involved in pumping of blood and beating differently at different occassions & psycologically we feel its the organ which feels but the biggest irony is that it just pumps up and down the volume of blood but then why we often come across people saying when it matters on relationship think from heart and on professional front use your brain. 
Human brain has been from ages a organ which has mysterious things hided inside in it. More you dig out, less it is and it still makes many stoned unturned as much you try to unturn. Brain is very smart in playing with all the organs and producing different behaviours or reactions at different situational swings and the most affected one is the Heart by its playful nuances. We say , we love , cry etc I mean all the feelings reflecting  in our daily life are governed by Brain no matter if its from frontal cortex or amygdala which are actually responsible for positive or negative feelings respectively. 

There must be beyond medical science purely philosphical or physcological why Heart is being called as organ which feels contracdictory to its function in real. The sensation of the beat during different feelings like love , hate , anger being mapped by brain creating a neuroimage and responding to fight or flight reaction . How much facinating is the relation between these two organs and their coordination. Execess beating of heart in happy or sad situation results in the arrest of the person’s life is often blamed to heart by stating ” why you felt that feeling so strongly that heart stopped pumping in reaction to it. ” But for a layman its unknown the director and story writer of all the feelings is Brain and poor Heart falls as a prey for all the blames.

The relationship between Brain and Heart might have been confirmed by medicine doctors but philosphist still go on thinking its the Heart which governs the emotions. 

Quiet MorningĀ 

Delhi Today is very quiet with cool breeze going on around 5.35 am. While sipping morning tea I am just wondering how much peaceful the moment is one can experience to find a space in 24 hrs day life where you are on with your ownself. No worries how the day will start whether it will scorching heat or its going to rain for day. 

I sitting on my favorite chair which I specially got it from china to enjoy sitting in small balcony of my apartment where I am surrounded by flower pots and big buildings which have stopped so far sunlight to fall upon my balcony area but most mesmerising is chirping of birds and my favorite reading stuff which relaxes me off before the start of noisy traffic sounds.

These types of days are really hard to get in summers when sun is directing heat  at 43 C on people but I should thank weather forecast department who predicted 2 days in delhi going to be pleasant. 

With a very long weekend ending up with labor day everyone is crazy of either booking bahubali conclusion or heading out to Corbett or Hills 200 Km odd away from delhi to give relax to family.

In another 15 min sounds of ringing bells in temples in each society around my apartment will start but still at the very moment I am trying to ease myself out because my brain is free of any business or personal commitments , I am enjoying my freedom and can challenge my brain think whatever I like to know rather preoccupied thoughts.

Often these mornings give me a feeling how much weekends are important to reenergise oneself and once the weekdays start it brain becomes occupied with negative to positive and vice versa thoughts and everyone challenges themselves to live the day. 

Being a night creature since my childhood I use to find utmost peace and silence but now I feel mornings have their own meanings though one finds lazy to get up early rather being awake for late nights as mind is feeded that one can get up late next morning if sleeps very late.

Gradually I am hearing sound of traffic , seeing some people running on the roads to reduce their body weight or control their cholesterol/blood sugar/blood pressure which has given them meaning to enjoy the feeling of being awake early morning before getting into tussle of everyday life.

Specially for husbands when they will stand in queue outside famous sweets corners in hour later to feed morning breakfast to the family with tasty oily feast giving their wives a bit of relax for the day or you can say its a forceful demand from current day girls not to make breakfast of weekends which gives me a laugh on situation of husbands.

So story goes on and still breezing good , not much big traffic sounds that tells most of the people around my area had bahubali night show.

This is giving me a very pleasant feeling that my mind has been charged while writing this short note as I have to get myself involved in some other readings.

Appellenz

A one night stay at city name Appellenz in Switzerland for a business trip , organized by one of my  friend. We left around 3 PM my colleague and friend in her car. While discussing about the business, terrain, lushy green mountains on each turning curve of road and train track. It always give me a feeling if there is a place in world where love and romance can be lived is Switzerland. Whichever city you go and roam around surroundings will give you inexplainable feeling. By the time we reach Appellenz it was already dawn but still bright sunlight falling on mountains surrounding the city made me to just check in the hotel and take out my newly bought camera to free my hands on photography. I and my colleague left for walk around. Though both of us are aquarians but class and attitude apart. He was on his way experiencing the small city known for its CHEESE for which Govt pays shepherds to take cattle high on the mountains to eat pure quality feed. And I was on my own just clicking pics from all angles. The hotel we stayed has another hotel infront of it named Romantik hotel which gave me feeling that it was meant for married couples to enjoy their honeymoon with SRK and Kajol songs in their minds and ears because the first thing you experience while you come to swiss is DDLG movie and everyone tries a pose with his or her beloved on terrain surrounded by green landscapes. 

By the time I and my colleague finished short trip my friend came and we had typical swiss dinner and my reservations to eat meat on thursday left me to enjoy vegan meal with soup and bread but more important were the talks over the table and restaurant was typical old cultural heritage and very soon all tables were full. People were enjoying beer and wine with their leisure talks which were sounding like birds chirping around but on their faces a relax feeling after day long work was pretty clear. 

As the dinner came to its end I and my friend parted away & by that time city was almost getting silent. After dinner before getting inside the room I just stand infront of my hotel and started watching the name Romantik Hotel. City was quiet , shops were almost closed gave me a feeling to compare how relax people are in their life in this city . I was really feeling what is purpose in my life , am i living the life which I always wanted to live which I use to dream pretty like the way people in Appellez . The truth was different though I lived and living life in different typical indian lives running behind money and securing future for financial stability etc etc but in my every visit to swiss I relealised life is to live romantically without living with a mediocre mindset. 

As the night was passing by i was looking from my hotel window that this will be sure one day my dream come true when I will be having a small cottage on top of mountain in my hometown surrounded by lushy green pine trees with garden of flowers and medicinal herbs and whole day I will be engrossed in things which I like to do most or missed while I was younger. 
In the end swiss always has a special place in my mind and heart touching nuances in my memories. 
Visit this beautiful city specially the small toy train to St Gallen in morning is very mesmerising.
