    Most Excellent, dear Rajanbab.
    Your pics are most exquisite.
    And, while the camera helps
    I still believe it is the individual manning the camera who produces such brilliance

    Thank you for sharing

Only in Silicon Valley.

Seen today on my evening stroll in Shoreline Park in Mountain View, California. Beyond the lake in the distance is the Google campus and Google bikes are the conveyance of choice for Googlers.

    “yogī yuñjīta satatam, ātmānaḿ rahasi sthitaḥ, ekākī yata-cittātmā, nirāśīr aparigrahaḥ”

    “A transcendentalist should always engage his body, mind and self in relationship with the Supreme; he should live alone in a secluded place and should always carefully control his mind. He should be free from desires and feelings of possessiveness.”

    Bhagvad Gita: Chapter 6 verse 10
