It's sometimes better to be a beautiful memory than to lead an ugly existence.

Diwali begins today- with Dhanteras. As I get set to celebrate the festival of lights in this foreign land- I know I will miss making rangoli- lighting diya's- hanging aakaash-kandil- and playing with anaar and phool-jhadees and most important of all- the home-made sweets and other delicacies that are going to flood my home and office back in India!

But I also know that I have the festive spirit in my heart- and even if it is without all these above things- I will celebrate Diwali here with a new dress and a candle or two! I will celebrate this festival with as much joy because the light is inside of me- and I carry it wherever I go :)

Here's wishing myself a Happy Diwali and a Happy New Year...

Yes- I do

I wonder how many people would have known that what seems like a hazy rose in the second picture was actually just another red flower before I shook it up through a Gimp whirlwind. In fact- it's quite possible that some people might not even see a rose at all in the second picture- but something completely different. We see what we want to see. The catch is- once we believe in it- it comes true- it becomes real for us. We first need to know what we want to see- and then believe in it. Mind you- however- there is a lot of difference between wanting something to happen and believing it will.

The hazy rose in the second image above is just an alternate to the first one having overwhelming clarity. And clarity does not define the existence of an image- just its credibility. A dream is an alternate reality. Wanting a dream to come true is common- believing in it- well- difficult. Do you believe in your alternate reality? The title for the post is my answer to that question.

Never underestimate the strength of silent faith.
