Short story on Life

Gaurav Shrestha,
Delhi College of Arts and Commerce


I ventured towards Nepal, Land beyond our domestic boundaries. Spending the time in Nepal truly made me realise the heterogeneous culture that Nepal stores and how effective it is to travel. This picture generalises a very simple fundament, it makes us realise the essence of Serendipity. I know it’s beyond our Indian territory yet somehow all I wanted to portray is the spontaneity and beauty of moments. This picture was taken on the hill top, Bridabasani Temple (4300ft) and it depicts the flavour of imagination, all that I could imagine in my own paradigm became a reality at this moment. A perfect harmony between Nature and its residents, in our everyday complexity we tend to forget how beautiful perspectives and observation could be and how it affects our nourishment.

Well, this was the place beyond words or thought this particular moment was “Ineffable” and all I said to my self was – “Wow, I Feel Infinite”

“Earth has music for those who listen” – William Shakespeare

It’s all about memories at the end where we reminiscence about the moments spent and enjoyed. Accepting and living the spontaneity in our perishing life will not amplify our existence however it will grant us wisdom for true wisdom begins when we accept the way things are.
