First eBook Launch — Landsort : Island of Happiness

Let me thank…errr… Ok i am nervous! First ebook up on the internet was possible because of so many people. BUT more interesting stories are from Landsort itself.

I and Pratik Gandhi went to Stockholm, this in July 2016 for TBEX Europe . Landsort one day visit was a fam trip organized by the team and Visit Stockholm .

Morning, 9 o-clock the bus with 9 of us, was going to start off for Landsort! I to be very honest, had not read nor heard about the place. Almost, LIKE ALMOST we missed the bus. We were standing at the wrong place, and we saw a energetic young woman running around and asking people where is the bus! We said — HI and found out that she was one of the nine members joining for fam trip! Inma — she introduced! Three of us ran (read really fast) to reach to Radisson Blu Waterfront Congress centre , where our bus was waiting for us. Damn! We made it!!!

It was around 45mins ride by bus. Met Ajay Sood , who happened to be busy speaking with stockholm police. I was shocked to hear his gear being stolen 15mins before the bus start. Please note Ajay is a very renowned photographer. Oh lord — was the only reaction popped in my head. Other fellow bloggers were pep talking and we exchanged greetings as we reached a harbor. Next part of the journey was on boat!

Music on the Streets

How often we miss things that happen around us. We have learned to be busy, by working more and ignoring art, which really makes us humans. During my recent short visit to Stockholm and Munich, I experienced a different urban life than in India.

Here is a short compilation of music on streets. Nothing beats the happiness when you experience such things on busy streets where people stop by and smile, appreciate and clap! God bless all the artists who bring joy in today’s chaotic world around us! Hope you enjoy this video…

Shadows and Cities

I love shadows of people, trees, objects – Cities!

Somehow, they make me think. Especially on busy streets, it is fun to click pictures against the sun. They don’t tell you if the person is rich, poor, black or white.

They are shadows! Isn’t that the reflection of human beings?
