Meghalaya has always been a favorite destination for the city dwellers of Guwahati. The love and hate relationship between Meghalaya and Assam has always managed to create memories. Here is a photo story that materialized on a Sunday drive to Cherrapunjee in search of Wei Sawdong waterfalls.
In Meghalaya every frame has a story
There is a story in every frame when you are in Meghalaya. The color of ordinary things is so vibrant and alive here that every picture tells a tale.
This isn’t a just a picture, it’s a story. A story we all hold within ourselves. A story that takes up most of our hearts. A story of the happy and sad times we never forget. A story that refuses to leave you, because a happy story is always a poetry in motion. Once you allow yourself to identify with people in a story, then you might begin to see yourself in that story even if on the surface it’s far removed from your situation.
The Beauty of Ruins in Meghalaya
Ruins are more beautiful than adorned castles, for ruins are the cathedrals of the timeBEN CAESAR
The broken stones in a ruined architecture will speak to you if you look into it deeper. We all as human beings, are occasional ruins, wandering among ruins, waiting to rebuild our castles once again.
Meghalaya effect: Simple things and Happiness
The Most Simple Things Can Bring The Most Happiness. – Izabella Scorupco. Can you imagine what your life would look like without music? For most of us, living without all those wonderful songs and compositions is simply unimaginable. In Meghalaya, you cannot help but sing.
Just like a good soundtrack accompanies a wonderful movie, music accompanies you throughout your entire life. During the ups and downs of life, there will always be those masterpieces that fully describe what you’re feeling at the present moment.
Adoration of Life
There is nothing wrong with taking action, doing things, resolving problems, and providing for others. That is how the world is built and modified. But to stop from time to time, allowing us to reflect on our past and map our future or even to think nothing is a necessity. It’s called Adoration of Life.
The dry grass in an empty field in Meghalaya provides an ample amount of color in a frame. What I love is how the color of the earth blends into the clear blue sky, painted by patches of white and gray clouds.
