In the ancient times, every home had a sacred grove, indicating reverence for nature. Of course, we need to take everything in the current context – but preserving sacred groves, whether in one’s home or outside in public spaces, will definitely benefit the environment that is getting degraded by global warming. Vedic knowledge, if applied to current times in the right context, can only benefit us –no Vedic ritual is directed at the personal benefit; it is all meant for the greate good of the entire community, as the sacred scriptures point out, vasudhaiva kutumbakam – we are one family. Good karma generates even more good karma and will benefit everyone.

Photographs are an amazing way of storing all our wonderful memories for a lifetime and everyone does it too. But there is a small difference in clicking random pictures and artistic photography, which most of us fail to understand. You definitely need not be a professional to learn artistic photography, but, you can make that slight difference in the way you make your photographs look simply wow. You can compose your picture before you capture, when you capture a photo, give a little interest to the arrangement of nearby objects, their shapes and angle, to complement the main focal image. An artistic photographer always concentrates on the details of a photograph, rather than making it look vague. Even a small dew drop on the leaf looks pretty, when captured in detail. White balance definitely makes a photograph looks brighter than in its actual setting. But, not all artistic photos look great with the white balance effect.
