On an afternoon in midsummer; two souls, in love, reached a crossroad.

Over the horizon, the floating white clouds were meeting yet shying away without touching. A relentless march of colors everywhere. Sweet fragrance filling the air. Sun shining warm and wind blowing cold. Yes, spring has sprung, I murmured that day. Indeed, spring is a carnival of nature, I felt. I wanted to make that day special, so fixed up a rendezvous with our beloved little tramp, Charlie Chaplin in Vevey, Switzerland.
Festivals are interesting! We all celebrate our respective festivals every year. Perhaps most of us enjoy festivals with some set conventions and rules. I had seen in our culture, any deviations from tradition produce anxiety and fear of nameless consequences. In my early age, I never questioned those traditions, but now I do. Now I celebrate in my own little way. Here is a story of a Christmas morning in Switzerland.
Imagine a still dark night, you, a candle and solitude! Did you realize the solitude too was melting along with the candle? Did you notice that when you were focussing on the flickering flame, your solitude was filling itself with those untamed thoughts? Did you feel that the single melting candle defied both the darkness and the solitude?Did you feel that the single melting candle defied both the darkness and the solitude? #Travel #wanderer #wanderlust Click To Tweet
Villars-sur-Ollon, a beautiful Swiss village in the heart of the Vaud Alps is an easy day trip destination from Lausanne – a city on Lake Geneva and home to the Olympic Museum. Let me share with you all a beautiful travel memoir to this resort town that has an international ambiance. I visited Villars-sur-Ollon, the picturesque countryside of Switzerland, and imbibed a poetic mood. All thanks to its bucolic landscape.
When by chance our fingers come across fire, our reflex comes into play. We take off our fingers. I often wonder, why there is no such reflex for our conscience!! When we see any unjust happening around, most of us tend to let it go and remain unaffected. I dream of a world where our reflex will work for our conscience as well. That will be true progress; the progress of humanity and upliftment of society in the true sense. I am optimistic.
Be it the internet, our cell phones, TV, digital cameras or MRI body scanners and many such revolutionary things, we all owe it to Albert Einstein – the most influential scientist of the 20th century. He spent a substantial amount of his life in Switzerland. He studied, worked and met his first wife while living in Switzerland.
