May the blessings of Lord Ganesh be always upon you. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

Ganesha embodies auspiciousness. He is the God who removes obstacles and hurdles and with whose grace problems disappear and prosperity appears. The picture was taken on Mumbai – Pune Highway.  Clouds take the shape of Ganesha, as if the god is bestowing blessings upon all.

A Haiku is a Japanese poem consisting of 17 syllables in 3 lines, with 5 syllables in the first and third lines and 7 in the second.


Lei: A wreath for your soul  is a string of short poems reflecting on nature, life, illusion and inspiration.Lei
