When sun was embracing the horizon, it blushed with a touch of pink and lilac. I closed my eye to capture the moment forever, but as soon as I opened my eyes, everything went dark. Darker with gray shadows and blackness around me, with only a large spotlight coming from somewhere above. For sometime I feared that what I was seeing with my eyes closed couple of minutes ago.. [nothingness] is still in front me, when I have opened my natural glares. Luckily the thought that soul still remembers the charm that sun had before kissing the deep mysteries of the sea, saved me from drowning.
PS: This story is very symbolic and yet simple so try to read it and understand the symbols I have used.
Making smart choices:
1. Use Energy Savers than bulbs. Use LCDs then your regular monitors.
2. Don't waste water and food resources.
3. Eat more fruits and veggies than meat.
4. Plant a tree.
5. Try to avoid toxic materials.
6. Put your appliances on standby or shut them off when you aren't using them.
7. Think of upgrading the gadgets instead off buying new ones because it causes a lot of wastage of resources.
8. Go electronic than manual. If you are still in manual stuff, recycle but always remember that be efficient in your use because recycling also needs resources like water and it also produces toxins.
It is simple. You just need to be conscious and make other people conscious of this fact too.
This photograph was taken during a special lecture series session at Aga Khan University, Pakistan where Pakistan's renowned Classical Kathak Dancer 'Naheed Siddiqui' was shedding light on how dance relates to Spirituality and Islam. In this particular moment, she performed the whirls of Sufis and Derwaishs. This particular movement is done in circles, denoting life, change, motion and inclusiveness; the hand which points upwards denotes the greatness of God. It is a way of expressing your love to God. Who said Dance and Music is only for entertainment. It has a higher purpose that is which planets dance in a orbit
It is all about feelings and expressing those emotions.
You can also see AKU's logo in behind. It is a great addition to the composition as it has Quranic Ayah in it and the whole logo gels very well with whirling movement. Also the designs in the backdrop has Islamic influence in it.
Presents to you a lighter and more thoughtful image of REAL ISLAM.
I got inspiration for this fractal from this experiment [link] where positive and negative words were spoken and written over glass bottles filled with distilled water. Water when frozen, the water crystals showed that positive words created beautiful crystal formation and the negative ones, you can guess it! The blue color represents the water crystal and flower shape is the most common in all the positive vibrations. This experiment proves the effect of positive vibrations on the health and wellbeing of a person and universe as a whole. Therefore, it also proves power of prayers. Also if we keep clinging on the values and ethics which sadly our rotten minds consider traditional and superficial, we can make the world a better place. It is all about purity of the emotions in the heart which makes your inner self beautiful.
In this fractal I wanted to depict that Inner Beauty is like a soul which flows and merges into eternity like the petals of a beautiful flower. It glows from the center and then spreads in the form of the aura of a person.
Our body is 75% water. This is my concept of ethics and scientific prove of Inner Beauty.
