If my words had wings…….

If words had wings

I would send mine 

flying into the sky

crossing the

vast blue oceans ,

soaring past  

the mighty mountains ,

into the wilderness unknown,

and the civilizations galore..

Flapping , gliding

and drifting

into those hapless places

that have been

shrouded in  darkness

 since time immemorial –

 A world of nescience ;

Incognizant to

the power of Knowledge

and the miracles

it can perform

And there my words

shall hover 

for sometime

till they bring about 

a new age , a new dawn .

Knowledge weathers all storm – ( weekly photo challenge – minimalist – 2 )

A Buddhist  Gompa , Arunachal Pradesh ,India

A Buddhist Gompa , Arunachal Pradesh ,India

According to me this picture , shot  in Arunachal pradesh , India , is truly minimalist . I love the,  silhouette of the Buddhist Gompa   ,  looking proud and resilient ,  against  the turbulent evening sky  . A buddhist gompa , is a fortification  of learning , lineage and sadhana ( meditation ) ….Most of them follow a general , sacred geometrical mandala design .

To me this picture , is symbolic . It depicts , in a sort of understated manner , the power of knowledge and learning . The fact that  Education can weather any storm , and  enable one to face the world without fear.

Knowledge – religious , spiritual , scientific ,social , psychological  , can transcend boundaries of caste , color or creed , and raise a person to a high pedestal , braving all odds. 

Knowledge and Education  are two sides of the same coin , and it is this coin which is the key to all social and economic problems faced by the world .

‘EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON WHICH YOU CAN USE , TO CHANGE THE WORLD.’ Nelson Mandela
