In this age, when our lives are changing fast and the overwhelming powers of technology are stirring every aspect of our living, I often think about the cardinal values in life. Will they remain the same or will they change with this fleeting age? Struggle for survival has been there from the beginning. Our past generations had struggled with a conviction for a few certainties in life. In today’s world, conviction and certainty and even identity are flickering in the dynamic realm of a fast-paced society. Hence, during my travels whenever I witnessed weddings, I felt a sigh of relief. It is indeed comforting to witness love and dreams still occupying a place in this world.

No matter what the religion is, a newly married couple visits God's abode and seeks blessings! I met this beautiful and newlywed couple when I was exploring a vibrant temple in Phuket. . Traveling teaches us not only diversity but also lets us experience universal human emotions. Beyond cultural, geographical and political barriers, you and I can meet a completely different person and can connect. The universality of some emotions makes the world beautiful. Now back to that day, that moment… . Two pairs of eyes were sparkling with new dreams, new possibilities and love for each other. I loved seeing the Thai attire of the married couple and congratulated them. They smiled and said, "Thank you so much. Our new journey begins." . I wished them a good life ahead and told them to fight back at all the challenges together that life will throw and share the happiness that life will gift. . Did you meet newly married couples anytime while being a tourist? How was the experience? . #TravelRealizations #thailand #phuket . . . . . . . #newlyweds #justmarried #watchalong #culturetrip #thailandinsider #amazingthailand#Indiantravelblogger #Indianblogger #passionpassport #postcardsfromtheworld #indiantraveller #temple #wanderlust #traveldeeper #seetheworld #travelblog #indianphotographers #indianshutterbugs #indiapics #indiaclicks #indiatravel #visitthailand #thailandinstagram#thailand_ig #igersthailand #storytellersofinstagram #openmyworld

I saw a big fat Indian wedding at the Gurdwara in San Jose. It was a pleasant summer evening and I couldn’t resist clicking this picture!

While traveling whenever I witnessed a fleeting scene of a wedding, I captured it. I loved seeing the smiling faces and eyes full of dreams. The cardinal values and emotions of human beings are perhaps still the same everywhere. The difference exists just in the outer shield. I wished all of them a happy and fulfilling life.

well-wishers!

A sojourner doesn’t tell only travel stories but also feelings that we can all relate to, irrespective of the distance, age, and culture.
