Seeing it like I never saw it before

I was there all along. Walking the same paths, crossing the same bridges, conversing with the same people and yet….as I look it from the eyes of another companion, it seems unfamiliar. Faces creased by lines of wisdom and the harsh reality of life, smiles that have the beauty of being real, unwavering eyes that looked through me, saw my reality and shared some of its own. Life revealed without a word. I  am spell bound by Rajdeep’s pictures of Kareri and its people. He was right, the best pictures are those which make their own stories, not those projected by our vision. And that’s what makes his pictures special. True to his form, the pics are caption free, leaving in the interpretation of what I see to myself, almost like reading a good book. You are introduced to the characters, but the romance of picturisation is unique to the reader.

It made me realise how little i really saw, how much more there is to see and the infinite possibilities that exist when your mind is not looking for an opportunity but simply being…Thank you Rajdeep for introducing a new place to me and the best part is, now i know it shall always be…

About Namita

A melange of colors, just like the rainbow. Sometimes, as bright as the yellow sun, brimming with energy. Then driven by the passion of red to pursue my dreams. Calm like the clear blue skies and playful like streaks of violets. I am a collection of stories, each different and yet the same. I am simple in my complexities and something in my nothingness. For my bread and butter, I am a reflexologist – a profession which is more than just a job, it is my passion. When I am not busy in conversation with the feet, I potter around with my camera lens, indulge in good music and snuggle in with my books. And when my energies begin running low, nothing perks me more than traveling to unknown places, meeting all sorts of people and exchanging tall stories. I am a founding trustee of the Uday Public Charitable Trust that hopes to provide the gift of education to children of martyred soldiers and also other deserving children. It is a cause close to my heart. My gypsy heart cannot sit still and I must always move, explore…The mountains call out ever so often and I am off with my backpack. Trek, trek, trek…I want to push my limits always..rediscover my fears and move forward with my strengths. i love myself and my life, I must be god’s favorite child . With much to do and much to see, i am on the brink of another journey, always.
