Freaky weather

Weather in chandigarh and surrounding areas is increasingly becoming awry and unpredicatable. There was heavy rain somedays back, when I took this picture. Damaged crops, and screwed up schedules and timetables. As if that was not enough, there started hailstorms. Huge big blocks of ice falling out of the sky and made an awesome racket as it did so. Woke up due to that racket and took this pictures from my hostel room balcony. Worried about the car getting dented but luckily no pproblems there.

Couple of days ago, an intense squall. Rain and wind, snapped power cables, leaves and flowers everywhere. Great day for photography.
And finally now, summer is advancing everyday. Its getting warmer and more uncomfortable, the fan is a welcome relief sometimes. Power cuts and sweaty nights will soon be upon us. And then there is this small matter of the world cup and the miserable Indian team.
I wonderi f I should now write exclusively on psychiatry and let this blog be known as a thinking mans blog!!!!

Wow shrinked Immaculate... these are truely beautiful pictures.

-common you have learned the art of integrating Science and Art. Why cant u integrate psychiatry and your art of photograhpy. Just find a methodology that would help you to integrate both. I would suggest reflexive action research methodology. Think about it.

Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature. The first recognition of beauty was one of the most significant events in the evolution of human consciousness. The feelings of joy and love are intrinsically connected to that recognition. Without fully realizing it, flowers would become for us an expression in form of that which is most high, most sacred, and ultimately formless within ourselves. Flowers, more fleeting, more ethereal, and more delicate than the plants out of which they emerged, would become like messengers from another realm, like a bridge between the world of physical forms and the formless. They not only had a scent that was delicate and pleasing to humans, but also brought a fragrance from the realm of spirit. Using the word 'enlightenment' in a wider sense than the conventionally accepted one, we could look upon flowers as the enlightenment of plants.
-Eckhart Tolle (New-Earth)
