Geneva Festival Fireworks

Conquering the darkness – Geneva Festival Fireworks 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?

The Broken Chair – A symbol of peace in Geneva, Switzerland!

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.

Discovery of the Higgs Boson at CERN, Switzerland

From the moment I heard that the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2013 has been awarded to Francois Englert and Peter W. Higgs for the theoretical discovery of a  mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC)I thought of sharing my experience of visiting CERN in Geneva, Switzerland with my readers.

The sound of water – Rhine Falls in Switzerland!

Whenever I hear the sound of water, be it on the shore where the waves are lashing, be it near a fountain, near the waves splashing in the lake, the ripples in a river, the sound of rain or be it around an enormous waterfall, it soothes me. A beautiful water body is not only pleasing to the eye but it also casts a magical spell in our ears.

A cruise on Lake Minnewanka in Banff, Canada!

The night was starry, and the moon was half crescent. I cuddled up beside the bedside window inside a wooden chalet to witness the night’s grandeur. But slowly, the starry sky lulled me into sleep. Next day, when the night departed, and the sun made its grand entry, I woke up and witnessed a magical morning slowly unfolding. The Canadian Rockies afar were shining in a silvery glow. The dewdrop on a green leaf was reflecting the morning glory. And I was slowly sipping in the cup of hot coffee. The spark of aliveness everywhere ignited the romantic traveler in me, and I decided to go on a cruise on Lake Minnewanka, in Banff, Canada by Pursuit.

Chronicles of Canadian Rockies – Banff and Jasper!

Every day at night I pull my blanket up to my forehead to cut off all possible lights coming from the modern world and crest towards dreams. During my trip to the Canadian Rockies, I didn’t pull my blanket at night because the internet and appliance rich modern world took a backseat and a dream-like reality, set in an idyllic location, encompassed my whole existence. Soothing sounds of water from the rivers and waterfalls, smells of berries and flowers and scenes of refreshing greenery all around rendered my days delightful. Every time I saw the beautiful birds in different colors flying cheerfully from spruce to pine and resting on a pebble in a tumbling mountain stream, I felt an urge to relinquish the lure of a comfortable modern life and embrace wilderness for the rest of my life. While I am still on my zigzag way, pursuing the diagonal between reason and heart, let me present you with chronicles of the Canadian Rockies as I witnessed them in the beautiful Banff and joyous Jasper National Parks in Canada!
