Lights

What do we actually think about enlightenment or when we hear that someone attained enlightenment.I’m not quite sure what that means but I know it’s something positive because ‘Light’ signifies Hope.

We always heard things like Focus on the ‘Light at the end of the tunnel’ and navigating through the darkness with the help of that light at the end.But the question here is that ‘Is that light even real?’. The reality, as we see it, is not quite real. The stars we see in the sky at the night are not really there. They may have moved or even died by the time we get to see them.

But it comes down to our perception of light.Even the sun’s light takes 8 minutes to reach us, so as we see the sun at a certain moment, It is already 8 minutes older than that.Mirage and other optical illusions are also the games that light play.But whatever may be the case Light plays a huge role in creating our ‘reality’ as we see it.

In this blog, I’m sharing some of my clicks devoted to light and a few favorite quotes.

Wherever there is light, one can photograph.

~Alfred Stieglitz

City lights of Mussoorie spread across the Hills

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

a blurred memory from a quiet Goa night

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.

one from Diwali – the festival of Lights

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

Tullamore Estate, Mussoorie

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That’s how the light gets in.
~Leonard Cohen

Sunburn’15

There are two kinds of light – the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

~ James Thurber

lighting the Chinese lanterns

In the darkness before the dawn
In the swirling of this storm
When I’m rolling with the punches and hope is gone
Leave a light, a light on!
~ Midnight, Coldplay
