Status Quo or Soaring to new heights ? The choice is in your hand, say the pigeons during my morning walk today.
During my early morning walk today, an interesting learning.
This crow represents the typical human mind. Water is available aplenty; yet we look out for small drops of gifts free.
And finally we reconcile to the fact
The Boss makes a brief appearance before he allows himself to be overshadowed by his subordinates.
At the end of the day, he still shines while others whither away.
Ever since we returned back to Bangalore in April 2021 from the USA, it has been exactly the same conditions like what we faced when we entered NewYork in early February 2020. LOCKED DOWN.
Locked down essentially means you get lots of time to do “Roof top walking” a familiar routine in the early morning and evening for me; this time with a difference – with lots of friends and companions. Strange!
Yes. It is literally an expedition to the animal kingdom and in particular THE BIRDS. I can assure you that if the lockdown continues further I can probably claim to have understood what these wonderful creations of God speak among themselves.
Here is Cathy, the Crow and Peggy, the Pigeon in a conversation on a bright and sunny day. True to the current situation, they had their cup of woes too. Let us hear them.
Well, Don’t worry Cathy and Peggy. Normalcy should be restored soon. Best wishes.

Looking at the Sunrise with awe and reciting Aditya Hrudayam during my early morning walks has been my most enjoyable moment for the day for several years.
Nothing can be more invigorating than this particularly in this era of pandemic and lock down. The one hour that I spend in the early morning is worth the gold. That is what Aditya (Sun) seems to be telling me today morning.
Watch Him talk to me today, Sunday the 16th Morning between 0545 and 0645 Hrs in Bangalore

When a flower predominantly grown in South of India and a Hindustani Classical Raga of the North India merges, you get nothing but pure Nectar (madhu).
No wonder, I saw these Jasmine flower plants in the apartment of a Delhi based “Madarasi” (a typical name given to people from South India living in North India), now settled in Bangalore. Being a very close relative of mine, I didn’t waste much time to pull out my iPhone, open the Camera and iTunes.

After 15 months stay at the East Coast of USA, we are back at the base in Namma Bengaluru. Within two weeks of arrival, here we are ! under “Total Lock Down for 14 days” due to the second wave of the epidemic.
Heart goes out to the people suffering and affected by the virus. Lucky & fortunate elders like me should have no issues at all to stay at home in an apartment complex.
It is no big deal. Simple formula – Just lock down and look up. You will see what you want to see and not the barrage of negativity around. When you lock down negativity and look up for positives, you will see HOPE.
Here are some images of what I saw:
These iPhone images taken by me, reinforce my belief that Nature can present its best side even under stressful living.
I sincerely pray that this good side of Nature soon help us overcome its other side and presents a smile on us, the suffering Indians.
World ! Please Pray for Indians. This also will pass.
Pandemic may come and hopefully go; but there is no doubt that if it is early April, you will see the Central Park at the Newyork city springing up to life, providing happiness, cheer and hope.
Time to sign off from the USA for the year 2021.
Sankey Tank at Malleswaram, Bangalore is ready for me.
au revoir; abiento.
The essence of Spring time rising viewed from the 25th floor of Upper East of Manhattan with iPhoneX accompanied by the soft music by my grandchildren. What else do one need to brighten up the day?
As the Sun sprays its color,
When the Bulbs sprout,
When colorful birds begin their work with tunes
When the Cherry blossoms
We know its time for a new hope
