MAHISHASUR AND THE FEAR IN HIS EYES
- A short story.
_
Mahishasur was born with superhuman powers. However, asuras/demons would always get defeated at the hands of the gods.
_
Irked by this and with the desire to become more powerful than gods, he began doing Tapasya (prayers) day and night to Lord Brahma, the creator, standing on one foot under a tree.
_
Impressed by his dedication, Brahma decided to bless him.
_
As a blessing, Mahishasur asked for immortality which Brahma denied with a smile and said, 'My son, what you ask for is not possible.' he said gently. 'Every creature that is born had to die. Think of something else. I will be happy to grant you a boon.'
_
Mahishasur quickly thought and asked for a blessing that no man or god could kill him. If he had to die, it should only be at the hands of a woman.
_
Being a gigantic demon, he was confident that no woman would be strong enough to kill him.
_
With this arrogance when Mahishasur started attacking the gods. In desperation, all the gods came together to combine their power and create this invincible women who is today known as Maa Durga.
_
She freed the world from Mahishasur's tyranny. The fear in Mahishasur's eyes before death tells the story.
_
Since then, Durga is worshipped during the Navratras and Durga Pujo and is addressed as Mahishasur Mardini.

Goddess Durga, the Supreme Goddess, is the embodiment of Pure Love, Courage and Divine Light “Jyoti”.
_
Goddess Durga is also depicted as a warrior woman carrying multiple weapons of different kinds (used in different situations), assuming mudras, or symbolic hand gestures that represent her teachings.
_
Can you guess how many weapons she carries ?
_
_
HINT: See the pic carefully to get the hint 😉

With Durga Puja just a few days away and the celebrations of Navratri starting from today, I took a walk through the beautiful lane of the making of Maa.
_
Over the next few days will be sharing clicks of my Pre-Durga Puja series.
_
What are you most excited about this festive season ??
_
_
Wish you all a very happy Navratris!

Went for a #heritagewalk through the history of Delhi last sunday.
_
And this little one sitting there, almost asking through its body language -
“ You have nothing better to do on a relaxed Sunday morning instead of making all that clicky noice and waking me up ??? Idiots!!!! ”.
_
🐿🤦‍♂️😂

LIFE WITH TECHNOLOGY
_
It’s on the table.
At the restaurant where you’re having dinner with an old friend.
You haven’t seen each other in years.
So good to catch up, missed the old times.
A wave of subtle vibration shakes the table.
Ignore it.
Wouldn’t be right to peek.
Another jolt.
It can wait.
Don’t you dare look.
Long dragging seconds limp along.
Who could it be?
Most likely nothing, another travel deal alert; it’s probably just your friend posting about how much havoc that butter chicken wrought upon their stomach.
Then again, what if someone is doing something amazing and I am missing it ?
Or an email from work ?
Is someone doing a live video ?
Did someone comment on my post ?
How much likes did I get ?
Has anyone seen my story yet ?
But?
Pay attention!
But, oh my God, what if it’s . . .
_
“Pick it up” the devil whispers on your shoulder. 😈
_
_
_
Sounds familiar ?
Well that’s life today!
The idiot box that has made its way from the walls of our rooms to a shrunken screen inside our pockets.
_
It keeps us constantly connected,
it keeps us constantly working,
it keeps us constantly distracted.
_
Technology -
It has made our lives convenient, efficient, knowledgeable but it has also made us prisoners in the open air.

PREDATORS KINGDOM
_
The Lost Chambers Aquarium - With over 20 marine life exhibits across 10 chambers in this Dubai aquarium, the overall theme is very much like a scene picked up from the Predator movie.
.
Walking through the glass tunnels with the surroundings of sea life in a jaw-dropping architectural design, you get the feeling of witnessing the making of a Hollywood movie.
.
Sharks, stingray, piranhas, lobsters and tiniest of seahorses are just some of the creatures you’ll come face-to-fin within this spellbinding underwater world.
.
Have you been to this aquarium in Dubai ?

HIDE & SEEK
_
What would you do if you found yourself lucky to visit a place on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with few tourists around ?
_
We chose to play hide & seek 😉😂
_
_
Have you ever done any madness while on a trip ?

HAVE YOU TRAVELLED YET ?
_
Let me tell you something, if you haven’t done a wildlife safari in Africa yet or it’s not on your bucketlist, you haven’t really travelled.
_
We all can yearn for the mountains and the beaches, but if you want to experience a genuine peaceful environment and connect with nature, go for a safari.
_
Will be sharing more pics and stories from my trip to Kenya in the coming few weeks. Hope you guys will like them.
_
_
_
ps: When I say a wildlife safari, I don’t mean the local jungle nearby where the guide takes you, shows a fake foot print of a tiger and then say - “See there are tigers here”. 🤣🤣🤣
Some of you might know what I am talk of!!! 😂

CONVERSATIONS WITH A STRANGER
_
There are many advantages of traveling:
- Explore new places
- Learn about different cultures
- Treat your appetite to different cuisines
_
But one thing that we don’t always expect is how we end up striking a conversation with complete strangers, both local and fellow tourists !!!
_
The beauty of traveling to a foreign land is that you get to leave your old emotional baggage and a life of the familiar behind.
You get to be yourself, leaving your many identities of who you are at work, at social gatherings and many others back at your own place.
_
You explore so much about your own personality, that you are almost never the same once you are back.
_
So if you are an introvert, travel !!!
As the saying goes - when you travel, you find yourself!
_
_
Have you ever had any random experiences when traveling ?

ROAD LESS TRAVELED ?
_
They say -
“Always take the road less traveled.”
_
Although in theory it might sound exciting and fascinating, not everything taught in theory can be applied in practical life.
_
So what do you think this ?
Just a cliche or has some meat to it ?
_
_
_
_
ps: Btw, on a road trip, road less traveled means raw, untapped and non-commercialised.
Result ?
Our natural scenic beauty. 😁
