Meditating on Peace


First time seeing this place as a ten year old in 1977, I couldn’t help but fall in love with Pangong su Lake. Blanco cold, the peaks were snowcapped, even from May to July.  By the way, it looks really cool on google earth!

I really missed that view when I took my family there few years ago. Not white anymore due to the global warming, which some VIP’s declare is not happenning. For want of a better word, let’s just call it alien-hugged-warm😉

Leaving Ladakh for a moment, lets revert to the series on change. Peoples’ perspectives and attitudes have changed, so why is it hard for us to maintain peace instead of terror?

Almost there: 3 more wordNiche pictures (per my sad math😋)

Relocating focus changes …


War has changed,

reason hasn’t,

Weapons have changed,

bloodshed hasn’t.

Need has changed,

greed hasn’t,

Diplomacy has changed,

love-hate hasn’t.

What does relocating our focus change? What are the options in unconventional wars?

Patina love

Patina sheen effect on copper😉

In the good ole’ days, when people travelled on foot, they removed patina off stones and made pictures, like stick figures, leaving their mark behind which we ponder about even today!

Now-a-days we drive, ride bullet trains, and fly like birds, still travelling; looking for something, coming back with souvenirs, leaving behind nothing!

Times change


Sunrise is so beautiful, it reminds me of Rumpelstiltskin. Everything has turned to gold!

Our aging elders are like that too. All their wisdom and patience, make a beauty of relationships, embellishing it with gold. When they share an insight, it is always worth a listen.

🙏 This holiday listen in one unique different way for getting to know something about them, and one for yourself. No counselor can tell what your family can mirror for you!❤️💚

One-way ticket to …

Simply put, a majority is made with a diverse group of people. I wonder does majority constitute a cohesive group of single attitude or background or faith? Is that even possible?


We still hear conversations about mine and yours, ours and theirs, his and hers.

As a society, we are compartmentalizing people and cultures, consciously or unconsciously. How can we claim majority or mainstream identity, if we must downplay others, simply because they do not speak our language or fit in a different box, made by us?


Let us expect and respect diverse thought. It’s a one-ticket to success or failure by ‘majority’ definitions. In “Terror Strikes The HoCleS,” I have put across fun, progressive scenarios of people, some based on real interviews of few amazing people, to illustrate how we do more damage than good, and how they rescued themselves from terror. Dont tell the kids, but fiction is often based on facts😉!

One of them retired as a very high ranking official, one is a professor, and those still in conflict, I hope, will heal and make their lives better, following their inspiration. Interesting and most of us didn’t even know it!

Think about amazing possibilities as you hear this song🎶

Knitted thoughts


2017 has been an interesting year: geographically, politically, and globally catastrophic! Knitting all those thoughts together, I find we are not just searching for happiness, but also peace. Just a little mental break, a little relief from storied stress.

Shopping and SALE therapy isn’t doing wonders either to alleviate the condition of the christmastly seasoned mind😉

Therefore, here’s wishing everyone a simple life, a joyful season, and a peaceful realm as you interact with society and family. Enjoy nature even as she dulls in her beauty, for her work of providing peace continues on. ❤️ Happy (planning) Holidays!

Listening to yourself?

Have a percussive headache and reaching for a painkiller? When low on energy, some of us reach for coffee, tea, sweet- whatever gets us going. Seems normal!

I do that too, sometimes. But never on holidays and ninety percent of other days. But definitely, no chemical based energy enhancers.

Listen to the body? What is it saying? Tired. Sleepy. Unnecessary sweet. 

In my view, all are crutches for moments when we don’t listen to ourselves and meet our needs. Simple example is: I find kids eat snacks and ‘being’ with a cell phone frequently. In short, ignoring their own needs, health, and sanity. I ask you, if your stomach can work non-stop. After all, doesn’t the stomach need rest too?

This is what I do and it works without stimulants. Rest. Sleep. Walk it off.

Peer pressure for kids and adults seems to make people use stimulants to appear cool, energetic, and a go getter. Instead of peace of mind, many of us involuntarily teach our kids to project a false image.

Do we fear being called an ancient, underdog, or mushy marshmallow?


(P.S. Tomorrow, the other peace😉)
