Love and Pain.

Acrylic Painting on Canvas(18″×24″) by Abhisek Pattnaik

Often we stand at crossroads, feeling dejected reflecting upon the mismatch between our expectations and what life has in store for us. But it is in these moments of extreme privacy, it becomes rather more important to sit back and reflect upon these as a result of one of the universal laws of nature. Love and Pain. Ironically we never think of them putting them in the same basket. But they always happen to chase each other… don’t they?  Sometimes even occurring at the same time.

“Aab kya karein janaab! Aas he to niraasa to hogi hi… par kabhi kabhi.” 🙂

Dichotomy!

Model J P Sartre (French Philosopher)
Acrylic on Canvas by Abhisek Pattnaik

Dichotomy : the nagging struggle with despair.

The incessant need of our personality to be intentional towards ‘the others’ ; infinite series of reflections and counter reflections utterly confusing things for some while creating beautiful patterns for others. At last the only abode that remains true or at least can remain true to our authentic nature are our thoughts but alas! If only we knew how to master them! 

Transient Love

In this world…Where everything lasts only for a fleeting moment…
How important it is to capture that moment of purity… 
To simply adore it and come to this understanding of how lucky you’re to experience it.

So let me raise a toast…
Cheers to you, to me… to our transient love.

“I looked into her eyes and saw the whole universe engaged therein, begging for a chance to be imprisoned within them… and I gradually realized that sometimes it is better to leave things as it is…”

Charcoal on Paper (Our little secrets)

“For what now remains is only a fraction of what used to be. For our secrets seem like some myth and the characters in it like someone who I used to know long long ago. The little tender secrets of ours, best kept hidden deep within our hearts all these years, doomed only to be lost and forgotten for good, once our time comes…”
