An Abrupt Fascination!!! :)


It all happened during the classic visit to Auroville, the city of dawn, situated at about 10 kms north of the town of  Pondicherry. This was perhaps the first time I saw complete sacrifice and absolute dedication for spiritual devotion! To walk the path of goodwill and make this world a better place…To leave all the materialistic luxury and fantasies of pleasure…To achieve the immortal luxury of peace & satisfaction and accomplish the divine pleasure of benevolence…To heal the world with the realization of human unity. This is a town being built where people from all countries can live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, politics and nationalities. Auroville founded by Mirra Alfassa (better known as ‘The Mother’) is one of the biggest projects of Sri Aurobindo Society. It is Sri Aurobindo’s vision in action. It is a place which represents no religion, no philosophy and no sect.
The greenery around was serene. I loved gazing all over and was busy admiring the variety of plants and trees around while I was having a stroll in the campus…When my eyes suddenly fell on somebody. It absolutely distracted my attraction towards the place so green and so beautiful. Perhaps I saw something, rather,  someone more pleasing!

Art could be a pass time,
Art could be a passion all time.
Art could be antique,
Art could be modern.

Divine art is in any case a blessing,
Done out of passion or by profession.
Divine art is delightfully striking,
Certainly an eternal linger in fashion.

Aesthetically Divine…!!

Golden Temple – Amritsar, Punjab, India

The Golden Temple…I came across the name of this sacred temple when I was real young. Read about it when in school and wanted to visit this beauty ever since…It was the architectural splendor which was certainly the first factor of attraction. But little did I know about the heavenly bliss I would be blessed with, when I stepped into the premises of the Gurudwara (a place of worship for Sikhs).
