The tricolour has always been very close to my heart, not only 'coz my grandfathers made a contribution to the freedom movement or 'coz 3 generations of my family have been serving the nation in olive greens but 'coz the tricolour symbolises 'freedom' & 'sacrifices'. It is a testimony to the selfless sacrifices made by innumerous people; a testimony to, coming together of people of different caste, class, religion, age & gender to demand freedom; a testimony that it doesn't always take violence & aggression to be heard...... non violence & truth can win not only wars but also hearts & respect. But sadly over the years, people have forgotten what the colours of our tiranga stand for -prosperity, peace, righteousness & unity. Every religion has claimed its own colour. People have forgotten that individually those colours don't mean much but when they come together, they make us a Nation, the largest & the most diverse democracy of the world. A nation which has risen from the ashes of years of plunder, subjugation & colonialism and stands tall amongst the other powerful nations of the world. It is our diversity which is our strength and on this Independence Day, I wish, my people understand that just like the different colours of flowers in a garden make a garden look beautiful, similarly what makes our Nation stand out is its diversity - diversity of religion, culture, traditions, language, habits, opinions, et all. This diversity is what sets us apart, what makes us unique. Don't let politics of few, divide and take away the beauty that multitude of colours bring to our nation. Embrace all colours & opinions, and that would mean true independence. #bookmark #availablenow #handpainted #handmade #waterproof #tearproof #unbreakable #acrylics #ply #fevicrylcolours #fevicryl #celebratingindependenceday #independenceday #indianindependence #flowersinagarden #handpaintedflowers #booklovers #thoughtprovoking #bookstagram #hastkari #hastkarimakes

As I was taking in the artwork previously posted, I looked across the street and was pleasantly surprised to find this beauty too! I love that this is right around the corner from my job! ๐Ÿ˜ #iLoveArt #Art #StreetArt #ThoughtProvoking #Inspiring #EscapeForASecond #Dope #Downtown #Sacramento #916

Yesterday I saw this silhouette being painted and I was really interested in what the result would be. Today I was lucky enough to catch the artist finishing up this incredible piece of art on my lunch break and just stood there in amazement. This is right right around the corner from my job, so needless to say, I will be back to admire! ๐Ÿ˜ #iLoveArt #Art #StreetArt #Inspiring #ThoughtProvoking #EscapeForASecond #Dope #NativePride #Downtown #Sacramento #916

After being discarded like garbage๐Ÿšฎ, still I smile ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ Outside joking with my friend (he doesn't want to be seen on camera lol). It was a good day today. I'm still alive and well, and still dope. P.s: he made me laugh right in the middle of taking a picture of myself and I decided to keep it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ #dreamer #dimples #dopehiphop #atlantahiphop #new #wssh #Gucci #guccigang #Eminem #lit #consciousrap #smartrap #thoughtprovoking #lyricist #like4like #dopelike #raplyrics #realhiphop #hiphopreal #music #musician #musicians #musicproducer #musicvideo #musicman

Simple aesthetics stand out amongst the crowd because everything else is trying to be too much. - Too much color, too many conflicting textures, too many different things happening in one photo. - A photo that just has one thing to show you is often the most impactful, the most peaceful... itโ€™s the same with everything. Honing in on the one thing, two people, three tasks that really MATTER is whatโ€™s most important. - What do you need to focus in on? - #minimalist #minimalism #minimalismquotes #minimalistquotes #minimalphotography #blackandwhite #negativespace #thoughtfulcaption #thoughtprovoking

๐ŸŽถWok this way!๐ŸŽถ . ๐Ÿฅ˜ #food - "What's left in the kitchen stir-fry" . . I had a bunch of leftover veggies and some pork in the fridge so I whipped together a quick stir fry. Fried rice, zucchini and squash, some peas, some okra, some spinach, mixed together with soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper, cooked in olive oil! It kind of turned out tasting like jambalaya with an Asian twist. Walt sure seemed interested!! ๐Ÿถ What's your best off the cuff recipe? . . ๐Ÿค” #thought - Own it! Own your failures, own your mistakes, it's the only way you will ever learn, grow, and succeed. Absolutely nobody is perfect 100% of the time. Everybody fails. Everybody has setbacks. There's a big difference between those who realize their erring ways and those who make excuses and point fingers. Be somebody who owns their actions and becomes a leader rather than a finger pointer. Get up, dust yourself off, and give it another go! . . . #stirfry #rice #friedrice #veggies #vegetables #leftovers #extrafood #foodcreation #creation #wok #wokthisway #tuesday #tuesdaymeal #mealprep #cooking #tuesdaythoughts #thoughtsoftheday #thoughtprovoking #doglover #dogfood #dogchef #coonhound #foodblogger #foodisfun #cookingadventures
