Brighten Your Day

Brighten your day,

With Sunshine and Rose,

Each day is a new beginning,

Leave the darkness behind,

When a flower blooms,

It brings happiness,

Flowers don’t bloom,

Without Sunshine,

And, humans can’t bloom,

Without love and hope.

Morning Glory

When you wake up to this view,

It’s going to be a beautiful day,

And a great week ahead,

Gratitude, my dear garden Roses.

An ancient festival, to worship The Sun — The Chath Puja is celebrated primarily in Bihar, and other states such as, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi in India.

The Sun is the ultimate source of energy, and therefore it makes sense to pay our respects and gratitude to the Sun.

In this festival, there is a custom to worship the setting Sun, along with the rising Sun.

This festival is celebrated by standing in a water body, generally in a revered river, such as the Ganga, or the Yamuna. Those who perform puja, stand with folded hands, and then with offerings, mainly composed of fruits and vegetables, and homemade sweets, with all purity.

Basically, this is a festival to worship Mother Nature, because of which their is life of all the living creatures.

Purity, cleanliness, devotion, family togetherness, community spirit, perseverance are some of the wonderful things, which make this 4 days festival, unique and a true Vedic tradition of India.

Madhumalti flowers—Be Hopeful

When life seems stressful,

Go for a Nature walk,

When all hope is lost,

Admire the blossoms,

When nothing seems to be good,

Appreciate the life,

And smell the flowers.

Serenity — Poem

Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan Champa Flowers

You make my mornings,

So peaceful, and serene,

The heavenly fragrance,

As if the angels,

Have landed in my garden,

Just be there,

And spread serenity,

In my little World,

And all around,

Today, and everyday.

पारिजात—हिन्दी कविता

Parijat Flower from my garden

कहते हैं कि, पारिजात समुद्र मंथन में उत्पन्न हुआ था,

कहते हैं कि, पारिजात तो स्वर्ग से पृथ्वी पर आया था,

इसकी दैवीय सुन्दरता को देखकर तो ऐसा ही लगता है,

भाग्यशाली हूँ मैं, कि ये मेरे बगीचे में मुस्कुरा रहा है।

खुबसूरत अतीत—हिन्दी कविता

©Chitrangada Sharan Pictures

पुरानी अलमारी में, कुछ पुरानी यादें,

कुछ हाथों से लिखे ख़त,

कुछ शेरों-शायरी, कुछ सूखे फूल,

कुछ सहेलियों का पता,

चेहरे पे मुस्कान लिए,

सोचती हूँ मैं,

सब कुछ कितना बदल गया है,

बस यादें रह जाती हैं,

एक खूबसूरत अतीत की ।

One Flower is enough to brighten my day.

I love to capture the beauty of the flowers, through my photography. Flowers, don’t live for long, but in photos, they do.

In the very short span of their life, they spread joy, happiness and beauty.

Let’s learn from the flowers. 🌹🌹
