“If you want to be reminded of the love of the Lord, just watch the sunrise.”
― Jeannette Walls
Well, I am a pretty lazy fellow. And getting up in the morning, just for the sake of running, is not a perfect way for me to spend them. Then too, my friends forced me to come and join them, they called me up continuously, until I got up. Grumbling tiredly like a troll awakened from a deep sleep, I climbed out of my bed. Looking around at the window, a sense of gloom permeates me as I realize that it isn’t even light yet. But my sole purpose was to capture the sunrise. So, I get dressed, keeping aside all these thoughts.
When I reached the nearby park, I see my friends and automatically I have a wide smile on my face. Something good happened after all. I was now excited to capture life around me and the sunrise, when I stumbled across this huge dead tree, with some crows sitting on the top, as if they were discussing their plans for the day. With the sunrise in the backdrop, I was mesmerized by this radiant sight.
That time, I felt how sunrise was a sign of hope. I heard it from people, but never really thought about it. A new day of life starts with it. When a man’s failures and circumstances are killing him, a hope rises. I was just sitting there, thinking about my life,how to re – assemble it, thanking god for such a statuesque view, and clicking photographs.
In life, there are many things that we have to learn to let go. We have to let go of situations, things, memories, people and even ourselves.
It’s easy to form an attachment to people and things. When you’ve formed an attachment to people and things, it can be a very painful experience and feeling when you realized that it’s time to let go. Even the mere thought of not having that person or thing in your life just squeezes your heart in pain.
However, there are times where you or that person has changed to the extent that it’s necessary to let go of the relationship or friendship, so that each of you can fulfill your life path.
Letting go of your past and memories are also extremely hard. Even though old memories can be tormenting, yet you might hold on to the past and refuse to move forward. However, by refusing to let go of the painful past, it’ll serve as a roadblock to love.
Letting go of your old self and the process of letting the new you emerge can be one of the scariest experiences in your life. But by leaving behind your old self and taking a leap of faith into the unknown, it might just reveal what you are truly capable of becoming.

Bee portrays the Common Man. Just as the bee, who works hard, flower to flower, just to end up giving all that it collected to it’s queen bee, in the same way, we pay income taxes to our corrupt government. The amount of hard work a common man put in, is not being respected by the fellow government. They are misusing the tax collections and everyday there’s a new scam. And to add to the misery, it is not working up to our expectations. The need of the hour is CHANGE. And as Mahatma Gandhi said, ““Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
