Life of a Hippie.

Image

I am walking on the road of my life,

I am the one who is reading and making the directions out of my map.

Reading all the milestones myself.

 

Neither I need a guide nor I need a GPS.

I don’t want to find any destination,just want to travel alone.

All I need is faith in God and my counterpart that is my family.

 

“Just living a life of a hippie”

 

I am moving forward in life with every little step I take,

I can’t look back but I believe that making mistakes makes you stronger and wiser,

Because every time you take a new step you think twice.

 

The speed breakers and bumps are the obstacles,that are too a part of my life,

And I will fight before life gets on without me.

 

My journey is not fixed,I have no travel plans,I have no fixed destination.

I only want to be  keep moving ahead,

I have a long way to go.

 

“Just living a life of a hippie”

 

The road I take is a game of my mind,Its what I like.

Just a pair of Jeans,a t-shirt and shoes makes me wander.

 

Just living a life of a hippie,

and

I guess I was born to be free.

“Never let your dreams be just dreams”

Image

 

Dreams are not those which come when you sleep Dreams are those that don’t let you sleep.Every person whether young or old has a dream And to fulfill them, one should not step back or be afaid of people.
We’re not made for the people. we’re made for ourselves.Either we can please them or us.

Chase your dreams.

Dreams don’t have to be small or big. Dreams are a total pack of life, for what we’ve been made for. Dreams are like feathers, free and no burden, they have to be kept flowing with the power of air. It gives an ability to move freely in life. Not fulfilling your dreams is just like tying the ribbons but you should always know that they shouldnt be tied up,instead they should be falling freely.

Second chances.

When dreams are not released, the person may think its the end of their life but second chances are always available which can be subscribed anytime.
You just have to believe in yourself and your dreams, faith will bring second chances. Never let go of your dreams.

Make sure that you ain’t surviving.

Asking someone is never wrong but taking and accepting their suggestion which you do not even want to accept is very wrong. If people do not understand you,don’t worry one day they will understand you,if people do not appreciate you,dont worry one day they will do that too.Never forget,that the thought that once made you happy, can never be wrong. If you’re doing what you want,you’re living and if you’re doing what others want,you’re surviving.
You’ve got to do what you’ve decided on your own.This is life!

All I can do is be mewhoever that is.” – Bob Dylan

A city of two worlds-Istanbul

Image
*Picture by Devrim Ates* (Sultan Ahmed Mosque,Istanbul)
Hanging in between the two continents-Asia and Europe,Istanbul is that only city in the world which fulfills this thought of ones mind.It is a city where two worlds collide. Yes,this beautiful city is really existing half on Europe and half on Asia  and having a blend of multi-cultured lives.The city of Istanbul, crosses the Bosporus  which is also known as the Istanbul Strait that divides Europe from Asia.Most of the people deeply visit Istanbul but forget to figure out this important fact. Istanbul is the largest city in the Europe.Its a city of beautiful mosques and palaces. Istanbul has always been a real treasure chest for its history,culture and its architecture which can  be experienced through its Greek side because of Greece extending towards it.Istanbul was always a cosmopolitan city throughout its history, its the most fastest and developed city of Turkey.
The majority of people consider themselves as Muslim and that too of Sunni branch of Islam.”The Sultan Ahmed Mosque” also known as “The Blue Mosque” is the most breathtaking religious landmarks and is the second most visited mosque of the world after The Hajj in Mecca,Saudi Arabia. And opposite it stands the “Hagia Sophia”,which is the largest cathedral in the Christian world.
Istanbul has always been on top of my list of the places to visit ever. East meets West, both physically and classically, creating an intoxicating cocktail of culture which makes it one of the most enthralling destinations on the planet.Istanbul has shown a lot of modernity and vibrancy ,the trendiest clubs, best restaurants and chicest shops on the continent can be found.
I’ve realised that writing this travel guide can really influence people but traveling to the such places in real is very vital as it helps you to judge all the little things of the world, its people,their language,their living,their food and what not.
Travel is one of the very things you can buy, that makes you richer.

The Name “Diwali” means “Row of Lights” representing the iconic seas of candles and eye-popping fireworks.Diwali signicfies a triumph of good over evil,symbolised as the triumph of light over darkness.
Rangoli -The Floor Art
Rangoli decorations, are made using coloured powder, are popular during Diwali.The purpose of rangoli is decoration, and it is thought to bring good luck. Design depictions may also vary as they reflect traditions, folklore and practices that are unique to each area.
This rangoli pattern is one of the traditional patterns as it forms certain geriatric shapes and flower and petal shapes. It took me 4 and half hours to make this floor decoration but its was fun and its only made once a year.
Enjoy.

The Taj Mahal, One of the 7 Wonders of the World
The white marble mausoleum located in Agra,India. It is the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian and Indian architectural styles.

I visited this beauty in June,2013 and its experience was one of the best experiences I’ve ever tasted through realms of traveling.
