“To her way of thinking, anyone who can not rise up and rebel, anyone devoid of the ability to dissent, can not really be said to be alive. In resistance lies the key to life. The rest of the people fall into two camps: the vegetables, who are fine with everything, and the tea glasses, who, though not fine with numerous things, lack the strength to confront. It is the latter that are the worse of the two” @shafakelif #bastardofistanbul #quoteoftheday #quotes #veteransday #armisticeday #worldwar #remember #poppies #travelphotography #travel #travelling #traveller #naturephotography #lodhigarden #garden #delhi #india #indianphotography #photographersofindia

Woh saara illm toh milta rahega aainda bhi, Magar woh jo kitabon mein mila karte the sukhe phool aur mehke hue ruqe, Kitabein mangne, girne, uthane ke bahane rishtey bante the, Unka kya hoga? Woh shayad abh nahin honge. ~~ Gulzar #gulzar #gulzarpoetry #poetry #hindipoetry #urdupoetry #hindi #urdu #kitab #books #bookstagram #photooftheday #travelphotography #travel #traveltheworld #travelling #traveller #travellersnotebook #santiago #chile

Coco Loco : What is your favorite festival? Tween : “my birthday” Why? “I get presents” Second favorite? “Xmas, I get presents” Third favorite? “Halloween, I get candy” Fourth favorite? “Easter, I go to London and I get candy” You know that we are living in a material world and she is a material girl. Teen : “Valentines, because it’s about love” “Diwali, because we go to India” “Xmas, because we go to the Bahamas” “Easter, because we go to London” Thursday’s child has far to go. . . Spouse : “Halloween” Hain? “Because it’s today” He lives in the moment. Tomorrow it’s Dia de los Muertos, the day of the dead. My current favorite festival. It’s neither the macabre Christian Halloween nor the solemn austere Hindu Shradh. Rather it’s a Mexican fiesta! A joyous celebration of ancestors who have passed. And so we have created an Ofrenda this year. Filled our altar with the smells of marigolds, the tastes of pan de muertos, the colors of papel picado, the lights from candles alongside sights of our dearly departed, whilst listening to Miguel sing, “Remember me, though I have to say goodbye Remember me, don't let it make you cry Remember me, though I have to travel far Remember me, for I will soon be gone Remember me, and let the love we have live on And know that I'm with you the only way that I can be” #diadelosmuertos #ancestors #dearlydeparted #dayofthedead #celebrations #remember #memories #life #death #happy #marigolds #photos #writer #writerslife #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writeraofindia #indianwriters #photooftheday #photography #photographer #photograph

Sadda haq aithe rakh: Once upon a time, when I was in boarding school, we were given Rs. 5 as spending money for Diwali. We were allowed to buy mithai and/or patakas. Our class made an unanimous decision to buy all the mithai we could with our money. We promptly polished off the mithai. When darkness descended on that moonless night our class sat forlorn. Watching from afar the patakas being burst which we ourselves had forgone from purchasing. That would be my first eco-friendly Diwali. The year ... 1978. “O eco-friendly, Nature ke rakshak, Main bhi hoon nature, Rivaazon se, samaajon se, Kyun tu kaate mujhe, Kyun baante mujhe is tarah”. #happy #diwali #shubh #deepawali #pataka #anar #ecofriendly #festivalseason #festiveseason #festivals #india #indian #indianfood #mithai #indiansweets #indianwriters #writersofindia #writer #desi #memories #childhoodmemories

Just yesterday the girls and I were talking about the older generation of film stars. The ones whose movies their dad watches over and over again. Jewel Thief ... Teesri Manzil ... I was telling them about the time I met Dev Anand. The time I met Shammi Kapoor. My Tween said I should take my husband to meet them because he is so enamored by them and their body of work. I had to inform her that they had passed. “And the women?” my Tween inquired. All alive. Tanuja ... Vyjayanthimala ... Asha ... Helen ... Because women DO live longer. Actually. #Happy #karwachauth #karwachauthspecial #fasting #feasting #longlife #life #husbandandwife #maleandfemale #desi #indian #indiancinema #indianmovies #indianwriters #indianwriter #writer #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writeraofindia #photooftheday #travelphotography #streetphotography #london #londonfood #dishoom
