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.

I was walking on the streets of heaven when I saw an old lady sitting on the roadside helplessly in extreme suffering. I thought the children who have forsaken their mother in such cruel way deserve the raging fires of hell. She was partially bald. She had wrinkles all over her face and sunken eyes. When I approached her, she took her face away from me. I tried to look her closely and was shattered into pieces because of the shame I felt. She was my mother earth and I couldn't even recognize her because of her such miserable condition. I couldn’t believe that what I had started ignorantly as a part of industrial revolution was carried forward to such an extent that my fellow brothers and sisters who are worshipers of commercialism had made her bald in the mayhem of deforestation. She was completely dehydrated which caused wrinkles all over her body. Her face had a layer of smoke residue over her as if someone has smoked zillions of cigarettes over her face.

I couldn’t see her, face her. I wished I had no eyes. I wished souls had no eyes but they always have but we try to blind ourselves by closing our eyes resting deep inside. I touched her hand and she started getting violent to me and shouting about why have I caused such harm to her weaker children like fishes and other animals? I felt a storm in her body and the land beneath was shaking. Feeling and saying sorry wasn’t enough. The disasters wouldn’t stop.

Still I wanted to apologize but couldn’t even utter the words of apology because I was in such guilt that my mouth felt all stitched. I was crying aside. I changed my path and started walking towards hell where the temperature raised with every step that I take to get drown.

My mother earth couldn’t see me in such state. She was showing different signs to me so I can some wisdom from them. She wasn’t furious. A mother can never be! She just wanted some attention. I got the clues. I went to her, sat on my knees beside her feet, and hugged her. I didn’t want to say anything. She didn’t want to complain. I wished I hadn’t done that all but thanks God it wasn’t that late. By making small intelligent changes in my habits, I saved her.


I felt that warm shelter over me again. I am safe because my mother earth is safe. I love my mother earth. Do you?
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.

At the end of a frazzled rope hung a man, daggling by a few blistered fingers and a little hope. He looked down, staring into the black abyss below, wondering if it would hurt, and if there was a bottom. Only a half an inch, he slipped, but it felt like forever in an instant. He breathed again. In short, quick bursts, as sweat beaded his brow.

The rope wiggles a little and looking up he sees her, knife in hand, slowly sawing and smiling. “I know you said you loved me, but I thought I told you good bye.”

He knows he was special, he always felt that uniqueness somewhere inside. He knows the fact that never in the history has been anyone exactly like him, nor will there be again. He also knows that every man was unique in his own way but he is among the lucky few people who realize it.

He is loud and full of life in the deepest details. He loves to talk but it was not the case when he was a child. He didn’t speak for two years on this earth because of which his parents were quite worried. They consulted a doctor and after the checkup the result was out. “Whenever he’ll speak, he’ll speak to such an extent that it will be difficult for you to make him silent”, predicted the doctor back then. The guess came true; he is a complete chatter box. Now he wants to be a motivational speaker. He wants to change the world and the minds by using this skill in his workshops where he can help people to improve and kindle a spark of hope in them. He believes small steps lead to a bigger change. People say he is mad. Being a trainer would not be a job, a proper job they say.

He loves to read and write. He reads a lot. He thinks a lot. He daydreams a lot. He has a strong faith that dreams come true so he works for it. A guy who is sensitive to the core but the cruel world things boys don’t cry. Harsh and mean comments does shatter his heart of glass but he always follow his principles which include forgive and forget. An individual who values relationships and don’t accept non-ethical acts as norms. He loves his dear God more than anything as HE is his best friend and after HIM comes his parents. He finds happiness is small things.

He is insane, just freaking crazy.

But why do people forget Einstein was also a mad person in eyes of others. He wouldn’t be what he is in front of the world today, if didn’t want to enjoy his life even by making strange faces in birthday parties. Likewise, he sings in pathetic voice songs like,
“Dontcha wish your lover was INSANE like me.” Dances as if no one is watching and laughs as a ping-pong ball. Bright colors and aesthetics allure him. You can see it everywhere from his photographs to the wardrobe which he sport in those photographs.  He once had an eye-brow piercing and was stared by people as if he was an alien. Many couldn't believe he had done it. That is why I beforehand announced that he is loud with a capital L.

He worries, he gets depressed but then optimism doesn’t allow him to be down for long. People called him fat. He replied with a laugh and took all the pain inside. Now he is slim. He has lost 40 lbs, not because he wanted people to see him in a way which was more acceptable but because he wanted to be healthy. He still feels fat because it is really tough for a bird to fly if he has been in a cage for more than a decade but he is still trying.

He is a complex being due to which it is hard for him to live in this world but why not see the brighter side. Why not appreciate and be thankful for what you have and make most out of it.

The world calls him insane sometimes in a good way, sometimes as an insult. When they do it in a later way, he asks them to read ‘Veronica Decides to Die’. It is only then they will understand that it is proud to be called insane by the world because this way the strings of your life - the way you want it to spend - are in your own hands and not others.

I AM PROUD TO BE INSANE!
This is an entry for writing contest on theme Insanity.

:sing: Dontcha wish your lover was Insane like me :sing:

Smile does it for everyone. Just a smile. Have you ever received a smile from stranger? It is so selfless that it just gets into deepest chord of your heart. You know it is not fake. You can feel the warmth and the joy. Even fake smiles work. It has a fair chance to make you happy but more than that it does make other people feel special. Still try to put a heartfelt smile rather than a fake one. Smile to everyone, even if that person is a stranger. Who knows that smile can change that person life forever. Who knows that smile can vanish some anxiety/worry which had a strong potential to make a huge lost afterwards. Who knows that smile can give him/her a zeal to live.

Pass it on with a smile :)

This fractal is copyrighted to me and the usage of it in any form is non-acceptable. Until and unless, you have my personal permission. Thanks.

Made from start and rendered in Apophysis. One of my favorite and loved fractals

For :iconkaremelancholia: Inner Beauty Contest: [link]

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.

Hik Allah
Haq Allah


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.

Witness - "to see, hear, or know by personal presence and perception"

I see shock in her eyes. She is more concerned about 'witnessing' something than drinking.

Rejection is not the end, somewhere above there is always some hope.
