Quite aptly, on Sunday, when we went birding to Ragihalli in the Bannerghatta Forest area, Geetanjali and Subir took us to a small lake where there were WHITE LOTUSES in profusion, and only white and mauve lilies. Just the sight of these flowers took my breath away for a while.
Here's the WHITE LOTUS:
And here's the water on the lotus leaf, which does not soak the leaf at all but rolls off and leaves it undisturbed :
Here are three water lilies, with their reflections in the water; thank you, Avinash, for showing me this view! So too, must one reflect upon oneself....
I am feeling very low (probably my mood is at the bottom of that lake!) just now, and I will wait until later to make the Ragihalli trip post. I must say, yesterday was a lovely day which gave me a lot of peace.
But now...there are tears in my heart as well as in my eyes...I suppose I will be OK tomorrow. Serenity is not easy to find!
