Thought behind the thought:
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower”, by Albert Camus. There is so much hope in this quote that it instantly connected with me. So, each and every one of us who is a leaf has a chance to become a flower. It does not matter if it happens in the very end, it does not matter if it will last only for a brief period of time. Our day to be a flower will definitely dawn and we must wait patiently for that to happen.

About the Art:

The greatest artist in the world is nature. No one can measure up to her. Not in scale, not in magnitude and definitely not in style. Everything is loud, colourful and gregarious. Arrival of every season is an event. Feelers are sent out; previews are given to select groups and an occasional no show also adds to the drama. The two videos here today are like the “making of” movie clips about autumn. The time lapse videos give us an insight into the scale of this production. Leaving us completely transfixed, with the beauty, that enamours, captures and enthralls us.

Let us look at a few Indian actors and actresses in their wonderfully colorful costumes. We may not have the pleasure of experiencing autumn colors everywhere in India but this performance happens all year round. Trees in their magnificent splendor!

Chinar in Shrinagar

Palash in Ranchi


Jacaranda mimosifolia

Michelia Champaka

These actors perform unabashedly and bring so much joy to our ordinary lives. This is one drama that has been going on since the beginning to time and it should continue till time immemorial.
