Gone With The Wind

Gone With The Wind

A World Never To Return

Gone with the wind are the days I once knew. Everything is different now. Much different from the times that I once and see and known. It was much simpler to live back then. I bet that my father might have also had the same thoughts that I am having at this moment while writing this post. Nostalgic, Yes, for things in life and the way we are living it gets more and more complicated with passing years. It was simpler back then.

We did not have as much as we now have. Our earnings have increased and so has the complication of earning it has too. We spend what we earn just to get something that we believe that we need, but what we get with even paying more than what we once paid, is not of the same quality nor quantity.

We buy from glamour and glitter as it seems we are buying them and in the bargain we are cock sure that we have done ourselves the favour of buying something good. The fact is that we bought even better from the shop in the corner, back in the past from none of the glamour and glitter and it was sure then what we truly intended to buy.

Our children are born into this age where they know nothing of except the mobile and computing devices. They can’t even imagine that there existed a world sans it. Yet, for us getting to a telephone to communicate to some distance ear was an adventure which we enjoyed. My father before me had to actually travel to the ear over distances which sometimes which was adventurous, which took with joy and his strides.

Those were true communications. The simple faded printed photographs long lost in the physical long lost in some corner of the home gathering dust is also a faded memory. It is all refined photographs to enhance the personality but not the true self.

As I say those days that I once knew have gone with the wind never to return to my present and yours too. The joy of us living together which is no longer the same as each of us has to part for reason that we do not want to but for reasons that this economic age compels us to. If we do not listen to the dictates of the present then we are not compatible with it.

Our cities are not longer the cities that we once knew. Our villages and towns are also no longer the same for our cities have become over populated and the folks in the villages have come thinner and thinner. In the interest for better lifestyles and comforts of the glamorous urban settlements and faster lifestyles have become the magnet to cause this disproportion where in search for happiness which got temporarily some disappears to bring the true reality of misery, stress and sickness.

Gone with the wind when it was totally the opposite story. Where being mischievous was not as being evil. Now evil and bad is not taken as important and the virtue of mankind all depends on how much of wealth he has, though, hardly anyone feels that it is important whether he has made it from the sweat of his brows.

Seeing the way things are going I bet my children will have the same feeling when they are of my age that the days they once knew has gone with the wind never to come back, just as I feel now.

Morning Tea

For Your Cup Of Morning Tea

Exploitation for our Morning Tea

Morning tea is something which each of we tea drinkers look forward to. Tea is one of the most sought after beverages drunk in the world. It came about by the conquest of lands and many lands have been shaped and formed because of it.

So much so your morning cup of tea is now cultivated in practically every part of the global that is hospitable towards its growth. Yet like most sought after cash crops tea also requires intensive care and growth which involves labour.

Since most of your morning tea and for a fact tea is in those parts of the world specially the South Asian Countries that have large estates under cultivation, for which the manual labour for its growth is done by women as they are nimble enough for its tender care. But, have you stopped for a while to consider, whether these folks that make it possible to bring our beside morning tea to us are paid in proportion to the labour they put in. In one word, the answer is a big NO.

There are paid practically peanut according to what I have come to know and have learnt of it first hand from those very women who put in their intensive labour here in Nepal. This video is a testaments to the facts. They are paid about $10 a week making it only $40 a month and if they are absent from work because of sickness from their work in the field, their payment is further cut.

But nevertheless, they are content with their small mercies for their work put in. It is us that should be asking the question before we drink our morning tea in cups to suit our ambience, whether they are paid fairly as we pay fairly for the tea which we drink. The lion’s share of the profit goes, into the owners and the share holders pockets, just because they own the land.

Which is bigger, the one who labours for you or the one who owns the product? I think you conscience must be pricking you. It is time people like you and me make it their business in their own ways to see that these women who make the morning tea happens for us are paid a proper living wage. I hope this video of them at work proves the point.

Please pass it on by sharing and it is because humanity still exist that we can make the world a fairer and better place for all to live and earn.

Rural Lifestyle

Rural Lifestyle

A Simple Life

A rural lifestyle is much simpler than what one would find in the urban areas which is its from one day to another in hopes of making money just to spend it over and to go all over the cycle of it again.

The video of “Rural Lifestyle” is a short glimpse of how folks go about life with talk and the squabbling of different family members while caring two hoots of others presence. Talk is simple and on day to day living where each day is of importance but not stressful.

On the contrary, living cities makes you self conscious of every little thing right from your appearance to how your home looks. Everyday is an expensive day as you need to compete with your neighbour, and others that exist in society for basically much of what you actually do not need to live a happy life.

You are deprived of living a actually happy life as you are full of stress as how you are going to provide for yourself and for other family members and the others in the family have the same agenda on their mind as how they are going to economically benefit.

So this video I made of rural lifestyle will in some way help to alleviate some of the stress I hope. So with the help of this video, I hope you folks would consider keeping your wallets back at home and getting out into the rural areas of your country and living the simple life that comes with it.

You would find that rural lifestyle has much to teach us not only with the economic side of life but also make us understand that life itself is not money and that there is a bigger picture to it. Once we get this. Life becomes much simpler for us than complicated that we make it.


Woodpecker Video

Woodpecker in my Backyard

There is no more joy of hearing the sound of a woodpecker specially while you are compelled to live in a city. That is because the tall buildings have overtaken the space that was once meant for trees. These creatures that once lived in the same spot for years or their ancestors now no longer find it home.

I had the opportunity and joy of getting the sound of a woodpecker coming from my backyard. Fortunately, it has some trees around. This part of the day the sound of humans are at it minimum so not only could this bird go about it business of building its home in peace, but also lets us know that its build activities is also melodious to the ears of other creatures not like those of the human activity.

I quickly ran out with my camera and recorded its pecking against the tree after locating it in the foliage of the growth of trees. It gave me the joy of recording it for about 30 seconds before it flew off, mostly probably it was disturbed by come coming human being, or a crow that are the only birds that love the city.

Below is the video which I would like to share with you so that you can take a piece of natural joy of the woodpecker building its home.

I hope you have enjoyed this video of the woodpecker as much as I have enjoyed filming it.
