As i was googling about the word GOLDEN HOUR i found this poem… Written by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

The name of the poem is THE FLOWER

Here we go…

Once in a golden hour
I cast to earth a seed.
Up there came a flower,
The people said, a weed.

To and fro they went
Thro’ my garden-bower,
And muttering discontent
Cursed me and my flower.

Then it grew so tall
It wore a crown of light,
But thieves from o’er the wall
Stole the seed by night.

Sow’d it far and wide
By every town and tower,
Till all the people cried
`Splendid is the flower.’

Read my little fable:
He that runs may read.
Most can raise the flowers now,
For all have got the seed.

And some are pretty enough,
And some are poor indeed;
And now again the people
Call it but a weed.

As i read the poem i felt a similar sense of how the society perceives any new idea with lot of unwelcoming attitude and later worships the same idea when they come to know about the real value of the idea. Here we go with a list of world’s 10 such inventions which initially faced a flat NO from the society and then the very same world embraced it and made it a part of their day to day lives.

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as i enjoyed the poem.

Thank you for giving it a read.

Lots of love,

Daily Prompt #14: Reading Material


Daily Prompt: Reading Material.

How do you pick what blogs or books to read? What’s the one thing that will get you to pick up a book or click on a link every single time?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us CHOICES.

To begin with let me start telling you one by one…

How do i choose Blogs?Very simple…

Step1: Open the WordPress.com

Step 2: Click on the Reader

Step 3: CLick the first post, read it, like it/comment on it then move on to DailyPost at WordPress.com which is something like an encyclopedia of hundreds of blogs from all over the world..

What is that one thing that interests me to read some blog?

A blog speaks about the Person who is writing it. It is nothing but a projection of his own personality, a reflection of his environment and a glimpse of his perceptions towards Life. Be it for the good cause or the bad. No doubt in saying that i first go by the Title of the Blog Post. I then go thru the About Page and try to understand what exactly is the Writers opinion about life…Then i start reading some posts. Secondly i also prefer “references” or in short the ping-backs. I make sure each ping back is visited and i get to see yet another amazing posts by some beautiful people. Things which describe the reality of life interests me more because we see Political Writings, Debates, Movie Reviews etc everyday on Television, Newspaper etc… but how much can we afford to get to see someone’s life who is thousands of miles away from us.Each story makes me feel life is so positive…

Now comes “books to read”

How do i choose books?

In the era of Online Shopping gone are those days when i used to ask my fellow classmate or someone regarding a particular book and then visit a cosy BookStore and read a book, and then decide whether i should go for Book A or Book B. Now all i do is first open Google.com and type “top 100 best novels India” Then i get some authentic lists by GoodReads.com or Flipkart.com. I visit the websites, read some preview and then just click “Buy”.

What sort of books interests me?

Basically i read any kind of book available on this planet except it should be in an understandable format. Books about love, life, self help, thriller, crime, philosophy, adventure and Motivation grab my attention. I try to pick those kind of books which portray the emotions of human beings in a very detailed manner. I love to read and explore those kind of books which help me discover the inner psyche and also helps me overcome my negativity.

Finally comes “Photography”

How do i choose my theme for photography?

I usually love to see the world in a very different way when it comes to LENS. The world which we see daily is my theme. I always try to capture something very natural in a day’s activity yet how people neglect the beauty of it. People Photography is my theme always. We live in a society and society is nothing but set of people living together. So my theme is all around them. The good, bad and ugly of it constitutes my theme.

I hope i have made a little justice to the Theme given by the Daily Prompt Guys by illustrating my interests in the form of a small blog post.

Thanks for giving it a read…

Love you all,
