Thanks be to Ranga for this most interesting tag. I'm supposed to make an image of myself. Of all the people who have been tagged, mine is probably the worst. Here it goes:
I have always been of the opinion that black and white is the most pleasing to the eye, and takes away the strain of viewing all those unneccessary colours. Yes, I love minimalism to a certain extent, but I'm rather a mixture of opposites. Let's start with the images in clockwise. The first - the traveller down the lonely track is a tribute to one of those 'crazy' obsessions - trains! Believe me, I have walked down kilometres from home to the rails, and back all on a scorching summer noon to catch some rare locomotive. Call it what you want :D
Next, the treble clef (or "the music symbol" as some call it) - my love for music. I wake up in the morning listening to heavy metal, and sleep listening to A R Rahman. Music has kept my soul from disintegrating all these years. People turn to their Bible or Gita in times of trouble... I have found solace in the rhythm and harmony of all those notes. The music theme is continued in that collage-like depiction of some instruments.
The garish red, blood stained feet is a tribute to one trait that has always been in me. I dont know if its good or bad, but it's plain that I tend to fly off the hook sometimes, and when angry, I often tend to forget myself and where I am.. to often regret later.
The meditating figure atop a hillock refers to the deep, contemplating moods I sometimes go into - talking all the less to people and shunning humans. The road into the horizon - travelling, one of my favourites.
The bottom left assortment of icons is the techie in me - linux, blogging, etc etc. The central crosshair is something I've often thought of myself as - focussed nowhere, just a wee bit of many things, yet nobody in particular. Frustrating. It's also a tribute to my love for photography.
The disorganised nature of the whole image reflects how disorganised my life is...
Well, thats it. I tag g-man, sidhusaaheb, harishanker, and nitin.
