I will pursue my
dreams again of visiting
a lot many places
I will go around
again exploring places and
I will wander in
those alleys again trying to
find lost history
For some, winter is all about the dark and dreary months when there isn’t a lot of activity.
But for others, winter is all about the joy and the celebrations of Christmas.
While winter months in a lot many places around the world can be dull and boring with the constant dark clouds and snow, it is also a good time for some winter sports, to watch the Aurora lights and make merry during Christmas.
I quite like this week’s Lens-artists challenge which shows what a difference a little bit of photo editing can make.
This one is at the top of Mount Tahtalı in Antalya where we went by cable car. In the edited photo, I have just cropped out the viewing platform so that the nature around stands out in contrast.

I am always amazed by how one person can move a mountain that an entire army couldn’t.

From the time we Indians are born, we are always taught the tenet of “Unity in Diversity“. This is based on the fact that though we have a number of different religions, regions, castes, languages, food items and more in the country, we still live in a united India. Yes, everything is not as perfect as it was intended with discrimination at various levels but then we still celebrate each others festivals, have different types of food and even speak more than one language.
Growing up in an environment like this has always taught me to appreciate diversity in every form. Having traveled to more than 25 countries across Europe, Asia and Africa, I have met people from across the board. It has given me interesting perspectives of their culture, their thoughts and even their beliefs. Eg: Saving and investing a certain amount of money is not just an Indian or specifically an Asian thing.
Meeting people who are different than we are also plays a strong role in helping remove stereotypes and myths created over many years. Eg: Not everyone from Africa deals in drugs and human trafficking.
