The picture of Gangotri (Gomukh, the origin of the holy Ganga) was clicked 4 years ago during my Kedarnath (Uttarakhand) visit.

What is in a shape?
Rapid stream hasn’t any
yet it builds many.

Zephyr shapes sand dunes,
The flowing water shapes stones,
Love can shape future.

    Beautiful words , from where you get this beautiful pic ? last line is so true

    • Thank you so much Mr. Saraswat. This picture of ‘Gangotri’ is part of my family album, and was clicked by my brother in 2011 from Kedarnath base.

    Very nicely written,
    But….sometime love also misshapes the future,

    • I know what you are trying to say. But mere pampering is not called love. True love incorporates discipline and it never harms anyone. 🙂 Well thank you for commenting. 🙂

  • Yes so true… such is the power of love.
