We have been blogging for one year now. The only reason we started our blog was inspiration from GMB AKASH.

We used to follow him on social media, as everyone does. We never knew he would turn out to be an inspiration for us getting into this blogging world.

He is a photographer based in Bangladesh, his passion for photography began in 1996. Now he has come a long long way of 20 years of his life as a photographer

And he achieved more than 100 international awards and have been published in more than 100 publications. He is the light who finds beauty in ugliness, strength in fragility and love in the lost.

He looks around for the untold stories…

So basically, In his child age, he never stopped following his dreams. He kept on wandering for stories around him, some of his stories were, the gay who used to dance occasionally in the lobby, girls under the red lights and colors of human emotions. His writing and photography influenced us to involve the people and the view of incredible humans from different culture and background.

He moves from place to place, cities, and countries and always tries to bring changes with his images and stories into the world, he had to Run, take a ride on the roof of train, sleep on the flooded floor and spend many hours walking through the slums.

Sometimes it was difficult for him to travel, He traveled to more than fifty countries, but most importantly he traveled through thousands of streets, which lead him to his sort of content.

He never thought of himself, he just did what he loves to do, which is Photojournalism.

He is an inspiration to many including us…

MUMBAI – The Gateway to one’s Dreams…

MUMBAI (01)

Mumbai/Bombay according to its recognition, the most popular city in India is Mumbai which is the gateway to one’s dreams. We were not too familiar with Mumbai.

On that day 28th of Jan 2018 we were very eager to hop on to the train as we planned from Pune junction, the train was ready to depart towards Mumbai which we had seen and heard in televisions, read in newspapers and published magazines. Yes, the facts about Mumbai!! As we got down the train at MUMBAI CST. (Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus)

Mumbai CST (02)

Like everyone we too rushed towards the exit of the station, the Mumbai police were doing their duty checking… We were having a bit of fear that this was the first time we had to visit Mumbai, Then we came across the Ticket Checker.

We spent some time over there… as always running Mumbai is the Heart of India. It’s full of wanderers and hardworking individuals, birds, artists, fisherfolks and millionaires, and lots and lots of people

It has India’s most rich film industry, some of Asia’s largest slums and the largest forest in a residential zone.

Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse, fashion hub and a point of religious tension.

The heart of the city contains some of the ancient era-architecture on the planet but if you explore a little more you’ll unfold unique bazaars, and India’s premier restaurants, the perfect combination of rich history, this city is known to have something for everybody. So, it’s no more a surprise that Mumbai is commonly known as

‘The City of Dreams’.

Mumbai is also known for its tourism (all throughout the year), Mumbai offers a mixture of everything. From beaches to hills, it has it all. There is also a happening nightlife and filled lifestyle. It is no more a secret!! you would know a lot about this city and what is to be given a visit.

If Mumbai is your introduction to India, prepare yourself, it is Energy…

Innocence…

Innocence…02

Our earth stood up with many sources, materials, creatures and much more which are beyond our Imagination for now.

As with the creature’s life also comes up with the human beings.

We have many roles in their present life. It can be a role of mother, father, brother, sister, a boy or a girl.

In all these roles It differs by two types which separate with gender which groups up with a Question of Education?

With a Question of Responsibilities ? with a Question of Safety Ann with a Question of her Existence means

A Girl…

We’ve got the look on the generation of now the children are being too sharp with minds and the sense of taking in a small age though.

They try to act to be an Adult and Behave like they were big. But, coming to the society and people and thoughts about the girl child are still to get a high fly with the wings…

As all the Questions comes up with Security of a girl

We’d wish every girl would have super power to protect them

But,

What about the cruel people who keep always waiting for deplete up the powers.

Everyone wins when girls and women access a full education. Educated girls and women are shown to have better maternal health and they are better equipped to raise healthier and more educated children.

Girls Education is more necessary for development of country,

Everyone knows it.

But,

“Still they face problems of Acquiring Education in some places though”

Innocence…01

what if I Exist, what if I step out, what if I live, what if I dream, what if I speak, what if I learn, what if I fly, what if I have wings… I Exist… I live… I speak… I learn… I fly… I am I… I am GIRL 🙂

 We were 13 people. Who decided to stand up with these Innocent dark vision world. Firstly we came up with the Question of Girls Education,  their security, problems they face everyday life. By the research we came to know that these Questions come faced by the girl whore are normal but, what about the girls who are feeble and child without parents.

                So, we thought on it for a couple of weeks and took a decision to open a home in which they can live freely apart from the wild and corrupt thoughts.

We all live here with a bond as a family here.

Every girl is disturbed here with some or the other problem. They are happy to their face but not with the inner soul.

  The girls here stay, live, eat, play, go school here but they never wanted to remind what made them feel so hurt yes indeed!!!  the Incident happened with them. Some of them come to me cry say but nothing, and sit with open and total blank mind what to say… the same incidents we hear Harassment, dowry, rape and you know the rest…. But we are happy here.

We need to find some way out, we need to ask questions not a few once because this is not the problem with a few lives.

        Girls rather saying woman also gave a huge contribution towards India. Women are becoming not only a significant part of society but also influencing the social change in society.

As a mother, she was not only the creator and maintainer but she also one hope to them to us..to everyone out there.

#SHE IS

She is believed to have her inspiration, abilities, and power.

Keep traveling… Keep exploring…

Father keeps quiet, he never talks to you about anything, Everyone has feelings for Mother but, fewer feelings for Father

“It’s very easy to be a dad but it’s difficult to be a papa”

Father plans for the future, he has feelings for the family, he cares for the family, thinks about each and every one in the family.This is the Gift to the father.

When I was traveling from Mumbai to Pune in first class Deccan Queen, my Attire was simple as usual.

     Some students were sitting in front of me, They were making fun of me, They were not knowing that I am Educated from Boston, London. After some time I called to steward and ordered some snack, I communicated with him in English as soon as after seeing and listening to me communicating in English they were shocked that my English was more fluent than their English, they came and accepted their mistake and were guilty. When I told them that ‘remember English is a language not a knowledge’ and stop taking money from your parents for your education

   ‘Earn and Learn’. After one month those students came to my place with their self-earned cars.

  I was taking care of my mother even she was in bed for 11 years. My mother once expressed her wish of eating mangoes, in the month of December.I visited many places many fruit dealers only for that one fruit, Finally after a week of searching. I Found Mangoes at the cost of 3000 RS a dozen .the dealer asked me why are you buying this non-seasonal fruit within a second I replied that “My mother wished to eat mangoes.” As soon as I replied him he offered me to take the mangoes free of cost. But I refused to take it free of cost and I paid him the cost of 1100Rs.

My father passed in the war (Indo-Pakistan War)of 1971. I found my father’s cadaver after 1 month.

 My father never earned money for us, he taught us a lesson, and he also told us to be self-dependent and learn the lessons of life all by ourselves. His teachings actually taught us how one should live his/her life.

  If you really want to do something for your father, do it now, do it every day, do it whenever you get a chance, stand beside your father in his hard times.Age doesn’t matter, ask him his problems.Try to keep him happy. If you do this much you will feel the crystal pleasure.

 By the way… All the people here in this ashram are dead, they are only Alive because they are breathing. No one is happy here they just pretend to be happy. there are many serious reasons, for these people are living in this ashram.

Father’s and mother’s days are only emotions be practical with your parents I will say one thing “Don’t forget your parents”.

If you speak sweetly, you can overcome each and every problem you will face.  After now I am going to the Himalayas.
