I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. J K Rowlin

40th Green walk - Rock Festival
40th Green walk rock festival has been
successfully completed, It happened like a fast paced thriller movie with
I dare say, I enjoyed it a lot because of those interruptions
which had happened.
Court judgment interfered, blissful rain, don’t know about
others, I thoroughly enjoyed driving my two wheeler to the venue- –
Face paced life style, running nowhere but somewhere in life, like everyone around me, I also long for peace, greenery,
Where else one could get it other than green walk.
What they had promised they delivered beautifully, rock
festival promised exhilaration, substance, deep core knowledge, photography,
talented people and friends. You could get all in one package, who would miss
it for heaven’s sake! Thank god I didn’t!
We were expecting around 1500 people, but because of the
nature’s wonderful curse only 500 turned up, nevertheless, it was a beautiful
experience having so many people around especially kids.
Shanthalingam sir’s speech was just magnificent, I chuckled
so many times listening to his speech especially when he under estimated
himself by saying, he got his respect back after participating in green walk.
I know the effort and pain Muthukrishnan sir and our green
walk colleagues had gone through, it had paid off, having all those negatives
such as no buses and heavy rain, still people participated, so we can imagine
how far and how strongly green walk had reached.
I m proud on their
behalf and also as a participant.
First many were not sure whether it would happen or not, due
to the reasons I mentioned above, but it did.
It was a through enjoyment day for the kids, they enjoyed
listening to the experts talk about samanar caves and its history. Making kids
come out of TV and video games these days are surely a challenge, but last Sunday,
green walk had successfully achieved that.
Games were conducted, competitions energized people, prizes
were distributed, even the local village boys participated and they were all
exhilarated taking prizes home! Seeing their smiles made many of us smile J
I wouldn’t wanna miss green walk mainly because it gave me
friends, wonderfully talented and updated friends who would also indirectly
urge you to do something in your life. When everyone around you have talent,
you would be little embarrassed to not have done something spectacular in your
life and it instigates, positively, of course!
It’s a place for photography, unfortunately or fortunately
this time I had decided not to take any pictures from my phone, so I just
clicked pictures through my eyes without letting an electronic instrument
disturbing my peace when I m enjoying the reality!
So much of wasted food, lots of tension, gripping moments –
in the end, it was a success, yes few writers couldn’t turn up, but the event
happened just as it would with every one of them around, successfully.
Now I am eagerly waiting for the 50th
Forgive me for stealing some of your pictures, i haven't taken my own, hence took some of these wonderful pics from the green walk page.
