My Paintbrush...

These are "nothing" when compared to the great paintings across the globe but these are "something" to every artist who holds the brush.

I Sit and Think ....



I Sit and Think


I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.

I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall never see.

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.

I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.

But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door.

- JRR Tolkien



for the uninitiated - Tolkein is the one who wrote The
Lord of the Rings ages ago!

High Time...

well...i finished my last lab exam and was free for d whole afternoon. weather was awesome n for a moment i thot i was in a hill station. my frens avinash n naveen came to d college with some work,but cudnt complete for some reason...so v guys were free n thot of trekking....it was raining n we wanted to climb the steepest n tallest mountain around...and thats how we started at 1300 hrs.



no its not porcupine...its my head facing towards the rock which was our first big hurdle..

with the JOSH to reach the summit..we went on slipping n sliding and after about 20 mins we were almost half way thru..n we found a small little cave to relax..





then after takin a few snaps we went futher up..and realised that we were still far frm d center...journey wasnt easy...there were big trees blocking our sight n it was hard to figure out d correct route..my shoes werent holding d grip since it was rainin n i slipped most no.of times wen compared to avinash n naveen..we didnt mind all these things n went on cracking jokes n helpin each other..and wen we reached half the way we were not able to see anything except big trees around us...as we went further up we reached a point where we thot it was d END..




yes...this was d point where we got stuck up for a few mins..then it was naveen who was really mad to go anyhow climbed on my shoulders n climbed the huge rock with gr8 difficulty as we didnt find nything to hold on...then it was my turn..avinash pushed me frm bottom n i caught nav's hand n made it..then avinash made it a bit easy than both of us as he was taller. gosh!! at this point we were dirty with thorns n caterpillars on our clothes with few of then hiding..we thot of taking a snap n luked down.. we cudnt see nything as it was fog all around...



n this is how it luked frm that point..as we went further up we got completely wet n almost reached the top at 1415 hrs..we were on our knees as we realised we were at the top..gud god!! we were happy n proud of our efforts n v enjoyed every bit we struggled..



yo!! we made it atlast n we were completely covered around with fog...so we cudnt take out ny pics around us..we sat for around 10 mins at the top..



our journey down was not as tough as we thot coz we luckily caught hold of a sheperd n got down with less pain yet slippin n sliding...
