Thank you sir. I have 3 projects planned, one of which is likely going to take 5 years or maybe more to complete. So I might just end up moving to hills eventually if things work out.YS, the B&W are very powerful. thanks for sharing.
what is the suspense with moving to the hills? do tell.
Quite true Khagesh.Who wouldn't fall in love with such a beauty? Barren, yet beauty! Sometimes I wonder, is it the beauty with which we fall in love or is it the solitude that we get in such places.
To come to think of it, is it for the fact that we get humbled which otherwise strongly egoistic. Or is it that feeling that we fall in love which is sublime, make us benevolent? Our egos, self-centerdness, whims and caprices which rule us almost every moment of our life are humbled in these places and suddenly we realize we are just a flotsam in the river of life. Aren't we falling in love with this?
Its difficult to choose I suppose. Yet, we all know we fall in love. The moment you return home, you want to be there once again.
Lets see how it goes .Great. I know Yogesh what you are going to do and you think the LOVE is enough for your new venture... hopefully not. I am sure you will fall in love again to find out some immortal flame inside.
wel done yogesh ji..............This isn’t a travelogue, this isn’t even a photologue. This is goodbye letter from one lover to another and the last dance, which played out between them. Not many will understand the emotions behind this, but this has been a decade long love affair and for me, it couldn’t have had a more appropriate, emotional and beautiful ending. This is, my tribute to the land I loved and will forever love from the bottom of my heart, yet, today I move on…
You have said your farewell earlier, when I was just thinking of ways of saying it to you and now I must say the same.
I fell in love with you the first time we met, since then I have come back to you again and again for what only you could provide and you have given me a lot. Today much of what I am, what I am known for and what I do is because of you and your unconditional love.
Yet today is the last time we meet as lovers, for tomorrow when I depart only your memories will remain and when we meet again, we will meet as friends.
I will come back for work and I will come back when I have to show someone one of my most memorable love affairs. But you know as well as I do, an era has ended now and I must move on.
You know the reasons for this better than I do, for you gave me more and more till I could take no more and I just sat there admiring the beauty I once loved. For you looked more beautiful yesterday and today than you had ever earlier.
You knew even before I did that it would be over now, I guess I didn't wanted to acknowledge it so soon. So we both put on our best cloths and danced one last time as lovers. We danced for hours and when I could dance no more, I sat down and watched you dance one last time for me. I smiled ever so softly with tears in my eyes, I whispered to you, thank you love and I will always remember you like this, for your beauty and compassion far exceeds anything I could understand and love. So I say goodbye now love, I will always hold your memories close to my heart and will visit you one day with my child by my side, hoping they too will fall for you like I did once and you will love them as much as you loved me throughout.
Forever in your debt,
The boy who fell in your love...
