I have had something on my mind for a long time and I'm about to get started with it. Yes, it's related to this blog. Continuing with my post yesterday, 2018 had been a roller coaster kind of year for me. A lot of things changed, a lot of things happened. It made me change some of my previous perceptions, and strengthened some others. It made me look at a different view, yet taught me to remember my roots as well. It broke me a number of times, and it made me up more times than that. I got to appreciate a lot of things I wasn't paying attention to before, and I got to let go of a few others which I realised were weighing me down. I won't say I am where I wanted to be by the end of this year, I have unmet goals and unreached targets, and sometimes the thought gets suffocating. Yet, I am learning to take one step at a time, and not let the hauntings of those unreached goals mess up with my future targets. All in all, 2018 had been an eventful year, Alhamdulillah, and I am thankful for all it had to offer. Here's to looking forward and looking ahead. I will be posting daily from now onwards till the end of this year, so stay tuned (because that's a rare occurrence :p)
Oh and here's a picture of me chilling in an Ajrak Turban a friend made casually on this year's independence day celebrations at university, and I refused to give it back to him cz I liked it too much :p Was a fun day, that day. 💫 /
دل نو لگ جّان روگ تے کی کرئیے۔۔
کسے دی یاد وچ اکھیاں رون تے کی کرئیے۔۔
سانوں تے ملن دی آس ہر ویلے بلیھا۔۔
جے یار ہی بھل جان تے کی کرئیے۔۔۔ ۔
Dil nu lag jan rog te ki kariye..
Kisay di yad wich akhyan ron te ki kariye..
Sanoo te milan di aas rehndi aye har welay bulhya..
Je yar he bhul jan te ki kariye..
"We’ve all done things we aren’t proud of. I understand that. I know nobody’s perfect but how do you live with it? How do you get up every morning and face the world knowing you could’ve done better, that you should’ve done better. Is sorry enough? Can an apology actually heal our wounds? Ease our pain? Can it undone the hurt we’ve caused?"
I went there and was left in awe, the arches of the Jahangir’s tomb in Lahore are decorated with intricate Fresco and real stones are embedded in the walls. The place is very underrated as compared to the other monuments of Lahore city. The people working in the tomb told me that it’s considered as the eighth wonder of the world (although I don’t know if it’s authentic). It was built under the rule of Shah Jahan after the building of Taj Mahal. The stones used inside the hall with the grave are original and the ceilings were decorated with diamonds and mirrors but the ceiling was completely destroyed during the colonial era.
My shooting style is more impromptu than planned. I usually wing it as I do with most things in life. That's one of the reasons posting regularly is a challenge for me, I'm really used to taking a shot when it catches my eye, like this one here.
2019 mood: plan more, create more
