Art isn’t a puzzle that is only understood once it’s solved. It’s art that I don’t need to find anymore, it comes along and it finds me. Art is an exploration to me; when I watch the sea, the sky or even look at cars passing on the road: that’s art for me. The movement of things around me, the way each element around me is placed may seem customary for others but for me it’s a canvas that I need to capture.

In my opinion, men and boys who use “no homo” following a share of emotion are still in the dark. Everyone can express feelings like everybody else, it’s a human possession, not an individual personality trait that only a few people can carry.
Eloquence is expressiveness, as expressiveness is privileged. It cannot take one’s expressiveness to change another’s thoughts but it can take one’s eloquence to persuade another’s way of thinking.
Human mind is a strange box of insanity; we think what we ourselves discover, and mind those whose ways of thinking is no same as ours. The interval between changing from one’s today and tomorrow is a long journey of discomfort, struggle and then harmony.
Can man change for himself ?, Or will he change for the world in which he is destined to live in? We’ll never know.
No matter how conscious psychology is, it cannot fathom one’s direction of change and its drift. But what psychology dictates is a different tale of circumstances that lead to change in one’s life. The push, the effort, and the animosity of the situation that we’re in, defines that reasonable interval of our past and our present. We want to learn everything there is to know; we do not regret of that we don’t know, but, we remorse when we’re wrong about something we know. That is what makes us change. The lacking of correct direction that leads us towards the mistaken road, even if it’s not discovered by us. The expressiveness is being able to communicate with mind and soul, by one’s own strength, and passing the energy to those whom you want to make feel a difference; to those whom you want to feel a change. That’s eloquence that changes a man into a life that best suits him.
It is the absence of what we need that makes us think, that makes us wonder and experience as we do now. We pressurize the world to be there for our benefit, and when that happens, we transform our viewing into vision.
We understand that lacking is an addiction that we use to slowly drift away from the unchanged. Only when we learn to live somewhere between the lives of others and our own, can we accept reality.
They were playing with heated stones right under the sun’s nose, without a hint of discomfort or irritation caused by the thwarting heat, around afternoon. There was no one around the area to discourage them from playing with each other and their elders also seemed extremely calm about it. They were silent, excited and convinced about their game and they didn’t bother anyone around as well. When I went up to them to ask their names and request pictures, it felt as if they didn’t understand me speaking to them but they loved my attention. It was comforting to witness them trying hard to pose and smile to the camera when they didn’t even know who I was and the purpose of my attention towards them, but they did what I told them to do, nevertheless.
They looked at me as though I was the one they were waiting for to click their pictures and make them laugh. I tried to request them that they keep playing their games, which was what they called ‘stick and stones’, but they didn’t understand me well and stopped playing for some picture time. I wanted some shots of them running on stones while smiling and laughing, awkwardly, around one another, enjoying some time before they were to attend to some chores as they resided in slums but I got these candid shots instead. These are the best ones as well!
These remind me of the way one chooses to live life: while there are problems faced due to poverty, hunger, unemployment, etc. in their homes, there is that place where you stick a smile and share a laugh around those who you feel comfortable with. Because then, you’re not only sharing your joy, you’re sharing your struggle without having to say it out loud.
