The beautiful is the bougainvillea flowers. Recently homesickness has been hitting me quite hard (yes yes, after 8 years of coping well it’s finally my turn to complain on the blog), and to combat it I’m trying to do things I like. Taking photos of beautiful flowers is definitely one of such things. Ha-ha, do I have to say that? I guess one third of my blog posts are about flowers.
Why these sudden attack of homesickness after many years of being comfortable in India? Well, for a number of personal reasons. One of them – my father’s death. It was hard enough to lose my grandparents while I was so far away, but with father it’s a different thing altogether – the whole life period is gone and there is no way back.
The ugly? The ugly is the building I see from my window every day.
I remember I was so puzzled when I saw it for the first time – why would a building look like it’s just been through the bombing of the World War 2? 🙂 When I was expecting my first child I was seriously concerned what the baby would think about the ugly world with building like that 🙂 Yes, sometimes pregnant women have crazy thoughts during their nesting period when they want to keep everything clean, organized and beautiful for the new baby.
You can have a better look at the building in this video. I took it many years ago and nothing has changes since then. Nothing can be done in terms of architecture, I understand. But oh my, simple painting would certainly do the trick! 🙂
