lock away your blues

I am just wondering why do people stalk be it in the real life or in the virtual world.
I had thought I have deleted all dead contacts, am far away from people with whom I no longer want to be with, etc….etc.

I guess its easier said than done. Getting away from people from real life is so very easy than in the virtual world. And more the avataar’s you have the more the people stalk you everywhere. I just fail to understand WHY? I know for the matter of fact that I am not gonna talk to the people concerned, I have no interest in their life; why just they don’t let you live in peace.

To also quote an incident – I have deleted many a contacts from my flickr ID; some of them dead contact and some of them added through local photowalks. I had deleted this guy from my flickr ID. He then somehow managed to find me at facebook (though we do not have any common friends). As a matter of fact, I sent him a request through facebook to which I am yet to receive a response. Gosh! I have to clean my contacts in facebook as well.

All this while I was only reading that hollwood stars being stalked; have I also become a hollywood star. haha
When people can break relationships through virtual world, deleting/ blocking these stalkers should not be a big task but a relief.


treading towards a lesser known path…

Chikmangalur Sept 09 DSC_1020 as Smart Object-1 copy
I had thought of writing this sometime early in the week, but the lazy bum in me did not move.
The last weekend I went to Chikmaglur, Karnataka (India). Its about 5-6 hrs drive. Its a beautiful place with coffee estates all over and varied small and beautiful waterfalls as well. Its a photographer’s paradise.
I couldn’t take too many shots as it was raining throughout, nevertheless managed some shots and would share with you all in some days.

About this post:
I guess we all are afraid of something or other. And we know about it. Last weekend the fear of Strong Winds crept into me. Yes, Strong Winds. We all enjoy winds, the breeze; but strong winds.
We went to a peak of the hill where the wind was so strong that it was just impossible for any single person to walk alone. One had to hold someone’s hand. Did I say I wanna hold your hand. 😉

The moment I got out of the car, I felt the strong wind currents hitting me and I was not able to take more than a few steps. My face was becoming numb and my legs were getting weaker and the next moment I see myself inside the car again, while my friends had their date with the strong winds for some more time.

I guess, its good to chicken out at times.
