We're glad to announce our Marine Pollution Photo Contest winners. This picture will be featured in our upcoming issue, 12.2!! Placing first, we bring forth Radha Rangarajan's photo, "Inniku high heels curry saapadlaam!" (Let's eat high heels curry today!)"
"Inniku high heels curry saapadlaam!" (Let's eat high heels curry today!) exclaimed one man, and the others laughed aloud in agreement. These fishermen at Marina Beach had just brought their catch in, the choppy sea didn't make towing the boat up the beach easy. They began to pull the net apart - a mud crab first, then a little skate, and then came this lone sandal. A comic relief for the onlookers, but a regular annoying moment for the fishermen. This is what happens to garbage, it simply ends up in the sea. All along the coast, I kept photographing nets that had been pulled up by fishermen, and irrespective of the place and the quantity of fish, the one constant presence in all nets and on all beaches was garbage.

Life is never gonna be easy, you might think it's easy, but no, you just have got used to live with it. Be grateful for everything that happens, nothing in this life should make the reason behind your failure. We all are going through hardships everyday. Noone is actually happy, but people are so good at pretending to be it. Even the richest, most famous people are facing some kind of hardships. Money can't buy happiness. But happiness can buy you a good health, gives you relief and good life. Just learn to keep going, keep fighting and facing every test that God or life is giving you. Stay strong, because you are much better than being just an weak and hopeless human. Everything will be okay, it only needs the right time for it. Be happy, be grateful, because you have a roof over you, happy family, food and work. Be thankful for the little things that you have, remember there is someone out there is dreaming about having what you already have got. 🙏🏽 #awaiting313speech
Without keep fighting, without tears , without suffering, without sadness, without depression, without heartbreak, without mistakes, without failing, without sleepless nights, without being exhausted, without sweating, without worrying, without bad thoughts and without an will, then I would never been who I am, where Iam and how far I have become today. I never thought I would make it this far, and today I'm so proud of being me and myself, noone could ever change the way or who I'm but what I've been through in my life, is what has made me the way I'm today. I'm very thankful for everything I've been through in life, it was worth it even though I was very close to give up but I never did. Because my life is precious to the peoplewho loves me, even if it wasn't precious for me but with time I noticed that nothing in this life worth my pain, tears and suffering unless it's for my goals and family. I thank my family for supporting me and never gave up on me and had faith in me to success in life ❤ #awaiting313speech
Sometimes it feels like you are stifling, not because you're sad or because you're not happy. But because the thoughts that fill your brain with lots of plans, concerns and expectations. In order to breathe easier, try to pour out all these unnecessary thoughts and instead focus on only TODAY.
I thank everyone who has been supporting me all this time when I needed it most, firstly I need to thank my family SO MUCH for being there for me, helped me when I needed it most. SECONDLY I need to thank the love of my life for giving me so much happiness, love and support. It was the best year I could ever have in my life. I thank God for the ups and downs I have been through in life, for the struggle and blessings he has given me. This year I will keep going as I always did to reach my goals, being there and help my family and never let them down, be a good friend for every friend that has given me the friendship I always wished to have. I will give the biggest love for the love of my life and never let go. I CAN DO IT, AND I WILL. Watch me succeeded in silence and shine in loud. A year older, but still the same girl you knew few years ago, but alot happier, more mature, wiser and more beautiful. Stay blessed, hopeful and never give up. Noone and nothing is worth your time but only YOU.
Love is when a man love his woman more than everything, when he sees his woman as the most beautiful on earth, even if she wears make up or not. Love is when he offer all his time and energy just to make her happy and has everything she could ever dreamed to have. A real man knows how treat his woman.
Love is not only about saying how much you love eachother, but love is much more than that!! Know the difference between nowadays love and a real love like in the 80s. I love you unconditionally.
