बस यूँही………

This brilliant photograph showing the brute, raw force of nature was taken at Ranpaat (रानपाट) waterfall close to Ratnagiri by my friend Dr Chandrashekhar Aparadh, a famous Urologist. The struggle for survival of a lone tree in the continuously cascading water is apparent in its inclination away from the water. The mist raised by the cataract swirls back counterclockwise. The wonderful and somewhat heroic interplay between the fury of natural elements and a creation of God trying to just stay alive, albeit shorn of all its foliage, sparked these words…. This could make the subject of a great painting. Thank you, Shekhar for the image that inspired.
