Another striking sculpture is “Ravananugraha Murti”.it depicts the story how Shiva humbled the pride of The demon king Ravana.When Ravana made an attempt to uproot the Kailash Paravat, the sacred abode of Lord Shiva, Shiva pressed the mountain down with the toe of his left foot, crushing the arms as well as the pride of Ravana.

As Yoda said in Star Wars, Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. So what can describe us better than a bunch of photons and a single photon is the symbol for my life. It has got zero rest mass and exists as the moving particle only. Always at move yet at peace. This blog is a journal of the journey of this photon. It is moving across this time-space curvature of life, a trip full of possibilities and probabilities, offering options and the contradictions at the same time.
