A Dash Of Blue

On a chilly, drizzly monsoon morning, taking a stroll along the Lily Pond at Lalbagh in Bangalore I chanced upon this magnificent creature – a Blue Waterhen – who was busy foraging for food and I was all but awestruck at its brilliant display of colours.

The blue waterhen, with a distinct red beak, glides through the water.
Wading through the Lily pond, it forages for breakfast.
Noticing something beneath the wide leaves, it pecks at it, but finds it not to be to its taste.
Aha! Maybe something catches its attention and it leaps for it.
Once done, it half-flies, half-walks back to its spot to forage some more.

A dreamer, a mystic and a traveller! Gallivanting through this life, I travel to understand my soul, place by place, people by people. As a constant learner, I dabble with photography, playing music, reading tarot, practicing Reiki, learning new languages, painting, and of course travelling – I feel it is this variety of life that keeps life alive and fresh. When I am not doing anything, I can be found huddled up with a book in a corner of my house, letting my imagination take flight.
