Happy!

The title comes from Karma’s When I Feel Like It blog where she posts a photo challenge for a month.

1st August 2015.  The word flashed –  “happy”.  That’s exactly who I met. Happiness

When you love what you do

When you love what you do

She illustrates happiness. Her constant smile, cheerful face and passionate expressions. A film maker by profession, she makes documentaries on various life & reality topics that inspire with her thought “reality is always stronger than what you are”.

Miriam jakobs

Miriam, Camera and Action

That’s Miriam Jakobs – a film director from Köln, Germany who loves travelling, shooting, teaching and more.  Her famous works include Das Dunkle Gen, Heaven & Hell, The temple of emotions amongst many others.  She, together with Gerhard Schick, is currently working on a film on urbanization and they chose Bangalore city to map to the urban spaces. Her film shall release next year and I am very eager to watch it, hopefully in their presence again.

While she was in Bangalore, we met several times, exchanged talks, experiences and hugs. We connected with each other in just no time.

1st of August 2015 they flew back to Germany after having touched many lives in Bangalore, shedding light on the long lost and dead Kote fort which is now only 5% alive, driving events, workshops, presentations and so much!

I did not think much about the photo challenge, but the signs! oh the signs! On the day marked for happy, I opened the Diary of Anne Frank and here’s what she wrote on Wednesday, 23rd February 1944:

“This morning, when I was sitting in front of the window and taking a long, deep look outside at God and nature, I was happy, just plain happy. Peter, as long as people feel that kind of happiness within themselves, the joy of nature, health and much more besides, they’ll always be able to recapture that happiness.

Riches, prestige, everything can be lost. But the happiness in your own heart can only be dimmed; it will always be there, as long as you live, to make you happy again. Whenever you are feeling lonely or sad, try going to the loft on a beautiful day and looking outside. Not at the houses and the rooftops, but at the sky. As long as you can look fearlessly at the sky, you’ll know that you’re pure within and  will find happiness once more.”

So on a happy note, see you next!

Colors of my World

According to Karma’s photo hunt contest , We must choose a color that we are drawn to and post at-least three photographs.

This is a perfect challenge! I’ve been thinking which would be that one color and finally just one day before the deadline I have the below photographs:

The Marigolds

The Marigolds – I like Yellow nowadays..

Love

Love… Yes Red, Red it is.

Rangoli - Siemens, Mumbai

Rangoli – Siemens, Mumbai .. I always like purple. I do..

Variety

Variety – Pink! Pink!

One color? Which one? I’m sorry Karen, it was hard to choose. Every color is special.
