This was one of the most peaceful mornings after spending a night camping by this river at Chalal, Himachal Pradesh. Woke up at 6am to photograph this at just the perfect hour, used a ND filter along with my 18-55mm to get that silky water texture!

हम औरों के जैसे बन क्यों न सके? .
Why couldn't I be like the others? ( Part-2)
अभी हम सोच रहे थे कि क्यों और कैसे बदले खुदको
उतने में राह चलते मुसाफ़िर ने फिर वही बात छेड दी
आप बुरा न माने तो खुलके एक बात कहेंगे ।
I was trying to figure out the why's and how's of changing myself,to fit in,and suddenly a traveler passing by raised the same concern. He said,With all due respect,I want to tell you something today.
ज़माना हँसता है आप जैसे लोगों पर
पूछेंगे सब लोग आप क्यों सब जैसे बन न सके ?
हमने सोचकर कहा
समझ नहीं आता
किसको ज़ालिम का नाम दे
खुदको या ज़माने को?
I reckon,People like you are mocked by the society.Someday they'll ask you face to face,why you couldn't become like them?
I paused and replied, I don't know whom to blame for it. Myself or the society.
हज़ारों दफ़ा ठोकरें खाकर भी हम ये समझ न सके
जब सबने ख़ुद को इतना है बदला
तो हम कभी जमाने की रफ़्तार से अपने को क्यों बदल न सके?
Inspite of stumbling across,the path of life a hundred times and being mocked always for being different, I still don't understand -if everyone could mould themselves to fit in as per ways of the world,Why couldn't I ??
( Took this picture of a man dressed in traditional Himachali dress,particularly his Himachali topi(cap) worn by men in the state,on my first solo trip while trekking to Parashar lake.He was standing at the edge,looking at the mountains and smoking beedi. Finding me alone he came to me and asked where I was from and what was I doing all alone in a remote place. With not more than 20 people around the area😂)
P.s.- try reading the part 1 for a better understanding of part 2😋
