After Pooja

The shawl and bag were colorful while the other colors were distracting, so I 'Gimped' them... found this image in one of my folders from last year...

A marked innate ability, as for artistic accomplishment. See Synonyms at ability.
Natural endowment or ability of a superior quality.
A person or group of people having such ability: The company makes good use of its talent.

I realised that 'talent' is wrongly used to refer to the ability to score in exams alone.
No, it isn't only that. If you are good at writing, connecting with people, singing, or anything at all and it comes naturally to you, it is a talent. If you are good at arguing against this, that is a talent too! ;-) If you enjoy it, it's only better.

I stopped enjoying painting and drawing. So I just gave it up. And I am not missing it one bit.

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to nurture it in solitude and follow the talent to the dark places where it leads.

Vasco 2

Entering the room allotted to us at Lapaz Gardens, we find the AC buzzing. I turn it off and open the window to be greeted by this sight...

The sea is so quiet. We do not know it was there until we are just 2 streets away and we see the sand and feel the breeze. The sand is warm. We spot coconut trees leaning gracefully, tempting us with their cool shadows. We trudge through the sand and then lay sprawled in the shade wondering if a coconut would choose to fall into our faces at this very moment... a heap of engineers we were...

My colleague enjoys the solitude, looking into the strangely silent sea...
Stranger sleeping... blissfully...

Finally, I got my rolls developed. The snaps in the previous Goa post were from borrowed digicams. :-) Here are some.

The under-exposed blob you see on the bottom-right is the boat towing the parasail...

I will post the other snaps later :-)
