Hello Bloggers and Readers. Some of you might have thought that I have disappeared. 😀
Actually, I was a little busy in preparing for a job interview and I finally got into it. #first_interview #first_job #an_awesome experience.
HOLI, a spring festival celebrated mainly in India and some other parts of South Asia is also known as the festival of colours. On this day, friends and family celebrate and enjoy themselves by colouring each other making them look like a alien. 😀
When I was a kid, I used to be scared of those painted faced guys who came to our home to wish us holi. I screamed, shouted and locked myself into a room if I saw them by chance. My imagination was that the guys have been converted into vampires and they want me to join their vampire group. 😀
But as I grew up, my fear towards holi diminished. Nowadays, I enjoy painting each others’ face using colours and love being painted too. I also uploaded a picture of me and my friends after playing holi this year. 🙂
P.S. The third from left (top) is me. 😀
Its my friend’s birthday and somehow I got the idea of making a handmade card for him. Yeah I know for some people it maybe easy but for someone like me, it’s like cracking a hard nut.
But readers, let me tell you one thing, its my first attempt to make a greeting card. I watched some beautiful videos in youtube to find out the simplest one (obviously simple and creative). Here it is:
With the above idea in mind, i tried to make the pop up hearts. And here the the pics of my card:
I know it looks a little stupid, maybe funny. Still, I hope he likes it. 🙂
The festival of light has arrived. It is one of the most wide awaited and celebrated festivals in India. It brings an atmosphere of peace, joy and harmony. People love this festival because it lights up the world. But where our ancestors celebrated this festival by lighting earthen diyas, and worshipping God, modern day man celebrates Diwali with a lot more pomp and flair. Electrical Lighting and Firecrackers, seem to set whole cities ablaze; and though these pyrotechnical wonders look beautiful and bright, they come at a cost.
Countless accidents occur every year. Lives are lost as well.
Also there firecrackers are proven to be a major cause for GLOBAL WARMING. The first people to celebrate Diwali did it in honour of Lord Ram who returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile on this very day. But in a few years from now, there may not even be an Ayodhya.
So let this Diwali light up a new path for us, into a new world, one clean and free of pollution, but full of light and life.
Wishing every one a Happy and Safe Diwali. 🙂
Light the Earth Tonight,but remember to protect it too. 🙂
People who find me avoiding non-veg often ask me, “Are you vegetarian?” I say, “Yes”.
“But you belong to a Bengali family.” “So?” “Are others in your family vegetarian too?” “No.”
The same set of odd questions are shot at me at least once a week. Ah! The most senseless question, “Don’t you feel that missing out on something great?” I never understood one thing, why do people overreact at this fact. Few of us are born vegan and some find a reason to choose to be vegan. The only reason I abandoned myself from such stuff at the age of seven is that I feel that I shouldn’t be ruthlessly eating the body of an animal who wanted to live. We are factory farming animals just for our own consumption. Apart from satisfying the burning desire of human beings, they don’t have a reason for their existence.
People who call themselves animal lovers, do you really love animals? Loving animals is simply opposite to consuming them. What are you trying to show by loving one and eating the other?
With the passage of time, I learnt that veganism is a way of life that is not forced on anyone. 🙂 Its you who has to realise the injustice, brutality and the offense.
