Water - An Element Of Surprise!

The below photo was captured by my friend, Abinav, apparently very good in it, as you can see. Actually, this photo was captured as part of a contest for a cultural fest of a particular college. Without thinking, I gave a like for it and proceeded to share the picture. When I saw the picture, it got me thinking. Thinking a lot of things. Water, water, water. Well, it sure can be at both the extremes, the good and bad side. On one hand, when we look at it, water is an indispensable (Yeah, I still remember this word in school textbooks :P) part of our life. It is vital for all living beings and also useful for various reasons right from drinking to washing and also cleaning the hair when a crow shits on you and you not being aware of it until your friends mock at you (that is so not cool :|). If water is not there, we can't survive. On the other hand, the same water has the ability to terrorize us in the form of Tsunami, a giant wave. At the particular angle and imagination, you can sense it in this picture. 

Photo specs:
Camera: Nikon CoolPix P100
Aperture: F3.2
Shutter Speed: 1/1000
ISO sensitivity: 800
It is amazing, isn't it? How water could be both good and evil! The picture could be interpreted and imagined in different ways. I got led into thinking about various memories of mine with water. One of the earliest, most of us would have experienced- making a paper boat and making it float and move in water desperately, pushing the side-water aside. Rotating my hands inside water in a bucket so that it forms a sort of spinning vortex and stopping the current by holding against it, is something I do even now sometimes. And ofcourse, jumping or stamping your legs in the rain puddles. That is awesome. If you had never done any of these, then atleast do it now. It does give a happy feeling when you do it, trust me. It may be childish, but don't give a damn :P. The picture also looks like a fountain. 

We do also have our bad experiences with water. Atleast, when we were small. At school, there were instances where children threw water at each other, particularly aimed for the lower part of the body. No wonder, this erupts a laughter from the others looking at the one who got wet, finally.

More recently, at college, one of my friends had gone to the restroom. It had numerous auto-urinal systems.
You know, the ones that have the red LED light. This technology apparently helps in conserving water, it seems. Anyway the thing is, instead of flushing down, the water spat at my friend and that too right at the spot. Poor him, it was like him being Mr.Bean all over again. We were crying with laughter. It was so funny.
The next time you visit the restroom, move quickly away from the closet, mind it!

“Always be like  water. Float in the times of pain or dance like waves along the wind which touches its surface.”


  1. Wondeful water thoughts :D
    Initially I thought it's going to be a class-6 water essay but you made me nostalgiac with the boat and water splash fun. I loved the pic very much. Superb photoshoot with refreshing wet words :D

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
