“Sometimes I think that the point of birdwatching is not the actual seeing of the birds, but the cultivation of patience. Of course, each time we set out, there’s a certain amount of expectation we’ll see something, maybe even a species we’ve never seen before, and that it will fill us with light. But even if we don’t see anything remarkable – and sometimes that happens – we come home filled with light anyway.”
― Lynn Thomson

It’s World Environment day.It’s time to think and pause and take a look at our environment.
The green patches being replaced by the concrete jungle.The small streams,lakes and rivers home to many chemicals and sewage waste.Towns and cities growing at a very rapid rate and dwindling trees.Diminishing lakes in the city and its impact on the environment.
My little thoughts on environment in the form of poetry.
My first post on Thru D Lens my personal blog. This piece of writing Lessons of life a small poem scribbled way back during engineering days is the first work of mine in random writings.
Just imagine you are a so called average student in your college .A failure strikes your way and you are hardest hit. All your other pals busy gearing up for on campus placements, studying hard to get distinction in the final year to get graduated as a responsible engineer with flying colours.It’s a great feeling right you get placed in your final semester before graduating with two job offers in hand.
How it feels like if it happens the reverse it’s a struggle right??
Over the years what I have realized is life is just not about faring well in exams, getting your dream jobs but it’s something beyond that. I know I m being a bit philosophical, life is imperfect but imperfections is beautiful.
