  1. A fitting verse after what has been a tumultuous (and depressing) week the world over. I don’t understand how hatred seems to be the preferred option of so many people when all it breeds is death and destruction. Thank you for sharing this, Madhu.

  2. I often find Rumi quotes to work with my blog posts Madhu – he’s amazing. Loved this one and the photo along with it. Wonderful!

  3. Ah, that Rumi! We could all take a leaf… 🙂 🙂 These two look quite content with their lot, don’t they?

    1. Thank you Meg. My comments on a couple of your posts last week got grabbed by your spam folder. I cannot comment now, unless your release me 🙂

      1. I just “not spammed” three comments. You should be free. I looked when you mentioned it before and there was nothing there. Sorry. I hate to miss special contact.

        1. Thank you! I complained to WP, and they say I am persona non grata no more….keeping my fingers crossed 🙂

    1. So glad you liked it Tish. I haven’t been doing standalone photo posts of late, but I was reading Rumi today and just had to pair that profound quote with this. Seemed to reflect the mood of the valley.

  4. Beautiful photo, but while I like B&W, I can’t help wonder what this would look like in color. India seems like a place full of color to me.

    1. Thank you Juliann. I rarely do B&W, much prefer colour myself. But this scene along with that quote felt right in monochrome somehow. Shall post the colour version in a later post.

  5. beautiful photo. one of my favorite quotes! let’s connect beyond thought 🙂

    1. Mine too. And it felt just right for the prevailing circumstances in Kashmir. Thank you for your lovely comment, have a great day Timali.
