Exactly! Like some rich guy in our place said, when budget homes were the trend in market : "At any cost I need to build a low budget home"

Love the 0170.jpg image of the floating birds. Pics capture more than the physical aspects.

Shubho, yours is a thread where I cannot decide that if the write up is better or the photographs. Every word comes straight out from your heart here. The pictures are splendid, but the write up is majestic. Appreciate your words and thoughts.

I realized this a few years ago after an extremely rough phase in my life. Since, then I am living it as there is no tomorrow. Not that I don't plan for tomorrow; just that the plan is calculative. This way I live for today because *this* is the tomorrow that I dreamt of yesterday. We often keep doing things/ saving/ planning for tomorrow, which may never come.
Living this way has made my life better and happy. Life, for me is about the days I am already living; not what may (or may not) come.

Great thread.

Regards,
Saket

Thank you so much Saket for the appreciation. And yes, you have taken the right approach to life now. It's all about taking things one at a time

Lovely write up and fantastic shots.
You brought us too all back to earth and down to basics.

Lovely photography.
Especially the grain fields with grass in the foreground.

Excellent pictures and a heartwarming narrative. Your thread has really reminded me and many others of an earlier era. Indeed you have rightly pointed out how we have taken so many basic things for granted. Time with our loved ones, good health, and Life itself are to be cherished and enjoyed each and every day. Look forward to many more travelogues from you. BTW your S10 looks really nice.

Cmon, a late night or early morning drive in your S10 itself could bring in Nirvana!

Beautiful set of pics! Thank you for sharing.

Thank You for this brilliant set of pictures and to pair it up with an excellent write up.

When I was really young my mother taught me to pray every night before I go to sleep and once when I get up the next morning. Just a 5-10 second thank you prayer. Over the years I continue to do so just out of habit. But reading this kind of gives more meaning to that habit.

Well, that's understood by default
An S10 anytime of the day or night is indeed pure Nirvana

Reading that brought a smile on my face. Please continue doing so. It's very important to be thankful to our creator. Who knows if we'd see tomorrow's sun or not

A heart touching thread in many ways. You have beautifully captured little things in life which are way far out of reach for a city dweller. Even I am a small town guy like you and many of your pics reminded me of my childhood days. Thanks for making me relive those evergreen memories. The picture of the little boy that asked you a pen and notebook brought tears in my eyes. Hats off!

Shubho, like everyone me too amazed with the picture quality and narration. And it has struck that chord with many due to the village thing we grew up in and have very less connections left now. So rated five star for this thread

I had been to this place many a times earlier when there are storks and pelicans were around. If you don't mind, just to refresh those memories, here is one from my old books - sitting at the top of all memories just like this braveheart and in a bunch like these tamarinds -

A log that was hardly 3 posts and half a page and it inspired discussions that has lasted three more pages. Vow!! Appreciate your efforts in putting your thoughts to words, interspersed with your lovely photos. As a person hitting the road to the country side at any available option, I can relate to the feelings expressed - but am not so capable to put in words as you have done. Great read. Thanks
