The Heart Of Life

Pain throws your heart to the ground, love turns the whole thing around. No, it won’t all go the way it should, but I know the heart of life is good. Just keep walking…

Ye mahaan drishya hai, 
Chal raha manushya hai, 
Ashru, swed, rakta se,
Lathpath lathpath lathpath.. 
Agneepath, agneepath, agneepath.

I’ve always loved these lines penned down by Harivansh Rai Bachchan and surprisingly I happened to read his poetry when I was 6 years old. It was one of the first poems that I had locked in my mind, frozen forever. Oh, and that song above the poem is called, ‘The heart Of Life’ by John Mayer. As always you should give it a listen if the picture right beside it makes you smile and you feel invigorated. And the shot was taken somewhere in Himachal Pradesh, India last year during my summer excursion.
