Free Your Spirit

Let me share one of my experiences with you. I was a very good high jumper in school…I fell in love with this sport. Do you know how? It was a quiet afternoon and I was competing with a few hundred others in this event and it was only my 2nd time. I was standing in line after some 40 or 50 participants, and then told to proceed. When I reached the bar running and floated my body in the air to pass over it, suddenly, a strange feeling started forming inside. For the first time in my life, I felt like a free spirit in those mere 4 or 5 seconds, suspended in the air, and letting myself go. This made me feel so beautiful that I fell in love with the experience and this event became my favourite of all.

The photo taken by Photographer Tamal Debnath (Cooch Behar, West Bengal, India), brings back those memories. What would it feel like, letting go as the boys in this photo? No, I’m not talking about jumping like them, but think about what they are doing…not just bathing in cold river water, but jumping into the river and letting themselves go, completely. Wonder what they are feeling at that moment? Is it only a feeling of excitement, or the feeling of beauty? When you are working, have you ever wanted to let yourself go to see what happens? Just to cherish the moment? Share your thoughts with us…

    that window which’s other side god knows opens where but where ever it opens i believe is destiny of all of us.its built in every ones heart.but tragedy is no one find its key in whole human history.however sometimes for no particular reason or some kind of luck for some people this window opens itself.may be this window needs no key at all but some kind of luck or wisdom opens it wide. what is that wisdom or luck nobody knows?i think passion and persistance has power to open that window and thats the missing key of it also.
