The Light on Colourless mentality…

      From the ages, slavery is a part of human existence. In humanity, there should not be severance of slaves and kings. One society always struggles to survive their existence. They become slaves of the high society or much powerful people. There are a lot of examples of how kings killed people of the other region to become a king. I never understand  the actual reason for imperialism. It is for people or only for the attitude..?? It should not only be for the authority, it’s for the solutions. But that dark disposition continued in the imperialism. There is misuse of power and position from centuries.

      Over the years, some communities suffered a lot in the time of slavery. That can not be imagined how they survived in that period.. The blackout on the surface of mind created a lot of troubles for some people. The difference of colours was noticed from the darkness that was covered in the mind. It is always more important to observe fair than fairness.  Attempts were made to identify the colours by the psyche.Though some people from the power knew and understand the truth of tones and they supported to those communities. It is never possible to understand or know the tones in the darkness. That darkness reflected on the struggling society and they became resistant. Few of them turned into a way of crime.  

       Colours are scattered everywhere in nature. There are deep tones and light tones in every corner of the world together. That togetherness creates a beautiful world. Whenever I paint something I always put opposite colours on the palette together. I mix opposite colours and that produces rhythm to my paintings. 

      It has changed a lot in democracy where everyone lives, plays and celebrates together but still sometimes, that attitude reflects and we see protests and agitations. We hope that someday this blackout will get the sunlight on it then that will be a different world with pure vision.

      An eye has a power to see colours in the other’s eyes. It should not be use to discrimination about the colours.

Thank you so much…

Nature for education and Nature of education…

In every aspect of life, we are learning something new. We educate us in a different role. Sometimes of life, of any subject, art, driving, in a career etc. We can be well educated but not anyone can be fully educated even by the end of life. In every zone there is a different system to study and learn. The most valuable study is from the innocent age when we go to school. Observation is the main key to learn something. Our ancestors observed first and then applied to their routine. By that they started to find solutions to problems. They innovated some invaluable things without any school. There was only one teacher and it was “Nature” . 

Painting by Navin R Soni

From the ages in Hindu sanskriti there has been a system of study from gurukul. ‘Sandipani’ ashram is the best example of it. In those times, students used to come from their home for a few terms and learned by staying there at ashram. They learnt by sitting under the tree and connecting with  soil. It’s amazing where the results were only seen in the eyes of gurus by their marking and not marks. Maybe there was no mathematics like today. They taught about shooting, languages, astronomy, yantras, mantras, tantra, different mathematics, science etc. The conversation of learning and teaching was in the proximity of nature. That’s why there was no burden of getting highest marks and being at top or bottom.Now, education has been changed totally. Air condition buildings, semesters, materials, books, exams, academies etc. Though the education system has a lot of issues, students should utilise their smooth efforts to study. Getting knowledge from study is more important than getting marks. Many students fears a lot during exams and takes stupid step of suicide !? How!? Exams are more important than life?. Even life is not an exam which can give you a certificate. It’s only filled with lessons. We can have great examples where one girl becomes an IAS topper or CA topper who is living in slums! A great respect for those who are studying hard to achieve something in life. Some have no smartphones, no ac classrooms, without study rooms achieved a lot from their learning. Those who have failed in exams and felt like losing a world should take inspiration from them. 

  Students in those times when an education took in gurukul by the imminent nature. There was no disappointment in the process of learning. The spoken words by gurus were first dropped on the leaves of the trees and then to the ears of students. So here it is much different from there. Hope this difference may be reduced by the coming tutors or students to achieve new heights of education. 

Education is not the slave of facilities, it’s a learning process by interchange between nature and human nature for a better tomorrow.

Thank You so much.

The clicks without cropped …

The light is a source of our vision. Naturally we see the light in yellowish or reddish tones but it has been of seven colours. By capturing this light by our eyes we can see and feel those emotions. Emotions of nature and human nature. Eyes are the main sense that capture perfect colours from nature and we can feel that colourful world.

 

Painting by me…

In today’s world, people have those assembled eyes on smartphones. I often goes to feel those beautiful colours in Nature. I see people gathered for enjoy and have some good time  there. Once, I went on a short trip near my town. A group was there to a picnic spot. Everyone got busy with their smartphones and cameras to capture images. Those 5 by 3 inches machines captured videos and images very smartly. After the end of the day, we get back to our bus and everyone was busy to see their phone clicks. There were more selfies than nature . I found few guys were discussing about that place and went their without assembled smart eyes. They found a beautiful place near to that spot and enjoyed by capturing with  real eyes. Everybody was wondering that why they hadn’t notice anything like that?. Do they really enjoyed or they went there to capture only photographs?!?. Some people never enjoy by being there and they get excited about taking photos and sharing later. Many of them even taking photos for their social media sites !?. They never feel where they are. Though taking photos is always precious for memories and we should have few clicks, but capturing images by our eyes are always has great remarks emotionally. An assembled eyes of smartphones has never those emotions that we get from our own eyes. Someone who visit places like this should spend one day without clicks. I am sure they will find a great pleasing moments without capturing. 

Moments and places should never captured in frames, it has a lot of uncropped images that can change our lives. 

Those dampness between eyelashes has always better emotions than assembled clicks. 

Thank you so much…
