Morning Stroll 2



A huge amber in the making, fossilized resin with tree inside.

Tree resembling a twig, a leaf, branches resembling veins dried.

Precious gemstone waiting to be formed, valued priceless.

Adorning heirlooms of memories, to be passed on to generations.

But only the resin being the golden orange sunlight, but only the amber our world.

The heirloom a morning cherished and saved, in the locker of our hearts impearled.


Candles 2


The city was Agra, the city of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The market was local market.Customers and hawkers were selling and buying things in frenzy. The time was just before Diwali. Road side vendors had spread colored sheets of clothes on the roadside and on their stalls and packed it with colorful clay idols of Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi. Clay sculptures were everywhere in vibrant colors. Birds, animals, Gods and Goddesses and these beautiful village women! The women were adorned in multicolored contrast attire, no two sculptures looked alike, and each one had a personality of her own, their eyes telling a different story, their curves revealing different hands which must have shaped them. Each woman had an earthen pot over her head symbolizing the container for water and a little child on their waist, silver glitter sparkling in the afternoon sun on their lehngas and silver colored jewelry adorning their necks, ankles, waist and wrists. They were being sold in pairs as if the vendor didn’t want the ladies to leave his stall without a companion. They were irresistible. It seems, sometimes, the simplest of things in the most unexpected places can leave one long for them as if they were something extraordinarily valuable.

Unbridled Expressions will be featuring for a week some photographs by guest artist Amit Sharma.
The photographs are about illumination.Illumination can be achieved by a single candle or numerous candles, it can be done by electricity,by the Sun,the Moon, by the knowledge imparted by a teacher to his/her students.Illumination is not just lighting up an area or space,it is also about the light imparted to the minds and souls of people. It is about lighting up a person’s existence and life.It is the act of getting illuminated or illuminating others and  being in a state of illumination. A mind which is illuminated by the light of knowledge and experience is the one which can illuminate a thousand other minds without ever striking a match.
