good enough!

aaji, i once asked my granny,
do you think this dress is too good (expensive)?

"what is more valuable than ourselves?
nothing material is too good."

words of wisdom from my grandmom.
how i wish i could talk to her today.

instead of hiding my real self like
a thief stealing from life,
i'd walk proud and strong,
not being ashamed to be me.

i'd always be good enough.

ajanta caves

crafted with love and care and patience. the stone pillow too has been softened with faith to form a soft cushion for the buddha's sleeping head. the ajanta caves were a joy to behold. to think they were forgotten for centuries together before being discovered...the caves are surprisingly well maintained, with eco-friendly buses leading upto them from the car park below.
