Title : a glance into the Struggling Beauties!!



“I can freeze time, whats your superpower?”
– Ashish 

Ashish nayak ..a self-taught photographer and a traveler who loves to explore the delicate and minute human life amidst the cacophony of convulsive society. A gym freak and a free lancer, he has also worked as an intern for amazon.

So dear Readers, allow Ashish to present before you the colorful shades of struggling lives. A struggle that is passionate to withhold the little beauties of life…a passion to worship the work like Gods…a worship that bears only happiness filled future for families…


Emptiness alights
From a dusky chariot
Wearing sleepless eyes
Anxiety tosses and turns
I send slumber to fetch dawn


Life – a balancing act
between dreams and reality
hope – a double-edged sword
by which my hunger hangs sturdily


Hope has the quality of a spiderweb
Incredible strength rising out of tiny strands
So long you possess this miraculous thread
You will know despair is clay in your hands


Balancing herself on the rope as she walks,
Kids with their parents; laughs and talks.
She is a kid working hard to earn the bread,
Even when the world tries to cut her into shred


He bends the metal with a hammer.
He cut them with a knife.
He connects them with fire.
He molds them with precision.
He is a blacksmith for the world but an artist in his own eyes


“Don’t give up. The beginning is always the hardest.
Life rewards those who work hard at it.”
– Anonymous
