Vibrant

Hello World!
These past few days am feeling so happy….maybe it will be for a short duration but still am enjoying this feeling of blissfulness and gaiety…

It all started on Thursday when I was coming back from work and walking home….it was already dark, the sun nearly setting down…and I looked up at the sky…
I was mesmerized…how to describe this beauty of the nightfall sky…the sky was cloudless…not a single cloud at the horizon…the first stars starting to shining…and this amazing blue patterns …aqua from blue marine to a pale blue pastel….with the last rays of the sun adding a beautiful pale yellow tone…

The atmosphere is always more warm glowing on the mood of people…making them feel warmer and happier…the surroundings looking more striking, colorful and bright…

How not to fall in love with the vibrancy of summer and nature…

Morose

Hello World!
During these days, the weather in Mauritius was morose, cloudy with few sun rays succeeding to pave their way out of the mass to pour out some light across the grey sky…the ocean far away in the horizon…still in its pittoresque state was magnificent in its blue grey color with few tanker ships on the way to the harbor completing the picture…

Traveling back home in the afternoon is always the only rare moment when I can dream and relax…crowd of passengers/strangers crossing your path but bearing the same perplexed look of the tired person…many of them ignoring the art of beauty picture that nature is offering us…
crowd-of-people
I then think that life is so strange …. So many lives crossing yours and traveling away in a jolt of moment of the highway of life not knowing what’s waiting ahead…

Listening to my favorite tracks and gazing at the windows… I always welcome the enchanting image of the sun waving me goodbye while it’s fading away in the vast blue grey ocean… I then wonder how it would have been if I was near the grey ocean in this morose atmosphere ….

I imagine myself watching the cold ocean with its unstoppable ballet of waves….with echo of the wind playing around ….
The cold sensation of the wind gust brushing you and transcending your body reaching your soul… this chilly feeling of being cleansed out of all dirt and negativity…
Lying freely and carelessly across the grass…

I would stare at the grey sky with the few sunrays bringing out some warmth to the morose atmosphere….

Unity a word in itself full of meaning ,hope, dream of humanity....

phudivwebsm

My colleague told me on Thursday that she is going to celebrate Eid at her friend place...she is going to have lunch there…
I was quite amazed as she was a Hindu...
and more amazed when she told me that she had done that more than ten years ....
and I realised something....
here in Mauritius, we are firstly a multicultural island where we grow learning to live with so many ethnical and cultural differences...

unity-angel
we may be a small island but we should be proud of one thing:our unity...
unity-is-strength

unity in the sense that we can go beyond so many barriers and live in a relative harmony

for this week we have 2 national festivals in Mauritius:
· Eid ul-Fitr
eid-ul-fitr_comment_graphic_01
Eid ul-Fitr often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fiṭr means "conclusion of the fast"; and so the holiday celebrates the conclusion of the thirty days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The first day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month Shawwal.

entitled La Belle et L'Avion (the beauty and the airplane)....


From the start to the end of the documentary, I just wish I was somewhere else…someone else… living something else

Life appears so idyllic and livable...

Despite living on an island (rather a concrete island I would say)I found myself yearning everyday of a new life......

a place where nature (fauna and flore) is still being respected and honored and graced...

not a place where every inch of soil is being toiled with concrete  and overpowered with greed for money and  outrun with consumerism ....

a place where one doesn't have to be ashamed of the color of one’s skin, ethnical background or social background

a place where we don't have to fear of walking in the street or stepping out without any attack, theft, violence or abuse...

a place where your silence is not your weakness...
