Paradox of our times

Paradox of our times

While some countries began the summer with hope as vaccines started to roll out, most others were still going through lockdowns due to the increasing coronavirus cases. And with the beginning of August, the nightmare started to get real as the hospitalizations and deaths started to creep up in many parts of the world. But life rolled on as usual or so it seemed with the seasons leading the way. In the Northern Hemisphere, the weather was hot and sultry while in the Southern Hemisphere, the winter was coming to an end. The farmers began harvesting their crops as always. In countries with vaccines, life was returning to the pre-pandemic days. But in others, there was nothing resembling normalcy.

Blue skies, beautiful

sunshine, birds chirping around

freshness of summer

Seasons of life

Seasons of life

Spring brings new hope and cheerfulness,

Summer brings profound happiness,

Autumn brings new matureness,

Winter’s sadness, Winter’s sadness

First day of summer

First day of summer

It had been a long hard winter with coronavirus wreaking havoc day after day. It was heartbreaking to see people struggling for their lives as the medical community began to buckle under the constant stream of patients. The dark clouds of uncertainty hung over everyone’s life.

But the vaccinations provided a silver lining amidst these dark clouds. And as the first day of summer began, these vaccinations were speeding ahead and began to show that there was light at the end of the tunnel. As the sun shone bright, the brightness in people’s lives also began to take shape.

Yellow Summer

The sun rays are strong,

Water is a scarce resource

supporting cacti

Cycle of Seasons

Cycle of Seasons

As the seasons change, so does a lot in our lives.

While spring is the time for new plans to look forward to,

Summer is the time for so many outdoor activities.

While autumn is the time when colours and seasons change,

Winter is the time for getting in the warmth and spending time with family around the fireplace.

As the seasons change, so does a lot in our lives.

100 word fiction: Summer vs Winter

100 word fiction: Summer vs Winter

It was a warm summer day with brilliant sunshine. With the temperature in the early 20s, it was the sort of the day which one would spend out in the open as much as possible. He was used to the long and cold winters and therefore seeing the sun was a time to rejoice, an emotion he longed for.

As he walked down the stairs to tend to his fields, he couldn’t help but remember how white everything looked during winter. At times, the heavy snowfall would make things quite dangerous. And then, he would covet the warmth of summer.

Photography: Focus on the subject

Focus is generally the central point of attention and activity. For photographers, it’s all the more important to keep the focus on a specific subject so that their photographs are able to tell their stories.

The focus was on the sunset and the lovely colours in the sky

It had been a long and dull winter with a lot many snowstorms day in and day out. He was a perspicacious individual who always liked to be engaged in something or the other. For someone as professionally inclined as him, he had to find unorthodox ways to keep himself occupied.

And so at the first instance of summer, he took out his cycle. While he initially thought of the empty roads, he knew that cycling by the sea hearing the waves hit the shore felt blissful.

But as the rains came suddenly, he ran for cover under the gate.

Moonlight

It came as no surprise to anyone when she entered the shop and found it inhabited by fluffy cuddly creatures. She had always seen a lot of people bringing their pets or kids coming to the shop to play with them time and time again. In presence of these creatures, the kids seemed full of verve. On full moon nights, the shop used to organize pet friendly events for people to play and bond with these creatures. Their aim was to move thoughts of animal lovers away from the froth in the name of animal protection by other groups. Though the shop’s owner knew that his shop was in imminent danger from these groups, it didn’t stop him one bit. He was more than happy working in the shadows of others to do his bit in taking care of these creatures.

Summer was at its

peak though without power, he

slept beneath the moon
