What do you see? 

This picture was captured by my roommate Srijita Mahapatra in one of my other friend, Surjyamukhi Bhattacharya’s Phone.

Look at this picture closely. What do you think the clouds and the sun signify ? Think of all the possible things you can come up with. 

Well, to me-

1. iPhones have pretty good cameras and how immensely talented my friend is 😂

2. Spiritually, it may signify the beauty of nature and the grace of our creator. How these wonderfully imperfect things, look so perfect to our eyes !

The glitter in the sky looks as if I could scoop it all up in my hands and let the stars swirl and touch one another, but they are so distant, so very far apart, that they cannot feel the warmth of each other, even though they are made of burning.”

—Beth Revis, Across the Universe

3. When someone wrongs us, we label them as bad people. Because of some wrong untimely judgements and decisions and some unpleasant behaviour, we label ,even, ourselves as bad people and we start thinking that we are not enough. But the truth is, our minds, our bad judgements are like the dark clouds here and our souls are like the sun shining in between them. We all have goodness, righteousness and potentials hidden within ourselves. And it shines through our souls, despite the bad things we do and the bad decisions we make.


Allow yourself to think only those thoughts that match your principles and can bear the bright light of day. Day by day, your choices, your thoughts, your actions fashion the person you become. Your integrity determines your destiny.


4. When we are hit by bad times, we deviate all our strengths and energies into the wrong direction. When one door closes, ten other doors are bound to open. We get so engulfed into the darkness that we stop looking for the possibilities. We only need the courage to be patient and start looking for opportunities. The sun here is a promise of hope in times of darkness. The sun is a flash of optimism and stoicism. The sun here, teaches us to dazzle irrespective of the background. Even the darkest clouds, can’t block a sun from shining ! 


When pain brings you down, don’t be silly, don’t close your eyes and cry, you just might be in the best position to see the sun shine.

  2. What an excellent post, Taj! I really appreciate it. I’ve been in a funk lately, waiting on some literary agents to get back with me. But I have to remember all the good in my life. I was offered three job positions. My kids are healthy. I have a lovely family. I’ll get my literary agent match in due time. ❤️ You lift me up! ☀️

      • It really is such a beautiful gift that we all have! Things have been a bit hectic in my world, had a possible cancer scare within my family, but yesterday mass was removed and surgeon came out after to tell me 90% that not cancer but still has to confirm with pathology but dr is pretty sure we are in the clear – thank you God! Night before was to take him to hospital my car AC went out but as luck had it I was able to use his car to drive and since he won’t be able to drive a few days I can put my car in shop. Then tomorrow it’s off to Corpus Christ, Texas to help my wonderful niece select her wedding venue decorations so probably won’t be posting a ton over these next few days. How about you?

      • I’m so sorry to hear about the cancer scare in your family. But I’m also very happy to know that it’s absolutely fine now.
        Cancer can be a pain for both the patient and his family. I am a medical student, I get to see so many sad faces and disturbed minds every day. Feeds on my soul. But, such is life. I’m glad that you people showed such moral strength then.
        Also congratulations to your niece on her wedding. Do keep us informed about the wedding. I would love to see how they dress up brides at your end of the world ♡ . Email me the pictures if you can.
        As for me, I’m doing okay. It has been raining on and off. And the weather is so pleasant right now, I snooze the entire day. I haven’t been studying well lately, But I should start soon as my exams are very close.
        And yes, I feel very nice to hear from you. Always stay in touch ♡

  3. My weathervane side think it’s sunny with heavy rain coming soon. 😛
    My imaginative side thinks that big white cloud looks like the left wing of a great bird sweeping away the darkness to bring the light. ☀️
    My whole self thinks this is an inspiring, positive post! ❤️
