Bonus post : ‘The World’s Greatest Swordsman’

Sometimes, it feels so funny to read your messages. I was away for some time, and after I came back I found someone write me a funny message. She said,”I like your posts so much. But, it seems you live in a cave and come out only once in a while to make us happy.” Hehe, now of course I am not a Neanderthal ๐Ÿ˜€ I was travelling the last few days and so I had little time to post on the blog. But anyway!

This gave me an idea. The idea of a ‘Bonus Post‘. So from now on, every once in a while, I will show some Ankur-Love, hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ I will post something bonus, maybe a bonus picture, a story, a video or something that makes you hobbits happy! ๐Ÿ™‚ As for today’s bonus post, there’s a funny story I found some days ago. I think you will understand the story better (more of a joke, actually ๐Ÿ˜› ) if you look closely to the picture below. Read on!

A young man climbs a mountain to a ledge, where there sits an old man with a sword in his lap. The young man says, โ€œI seek the greatest swordsman in the World.โ€

Without a word, the old man draws his sword and flicks it in the air at a passing fly. The fly falls to the ground in two pieces.

The young man says, โ€œSurely you are the greatest Swordsman in the world!โ€

The old man says, โ€œNo. Further up the mountain is a swordsman greater than I.โ€

So the young man climbs up the mountain to another ledge where there sits an even older man with a sword in his lap.

The young man says, โ€œI seek the greatest swordsman in the world.โ€

Without a word, the old man draws his sword and flicks it in the air at a passing fly. The fly falls to the ground in three pieces.

The young man says, โ€œSurely you are the greatest Swordsman in the world.โ€

The old man says, โ€œNo. At the top of this mountain is the greatest swordsman.โ€

So the young man climbs up to the top of the mountain, where there sits an even older man with a sword in his lap.

The young man says, โ€œI seek the greatest swordsman in the world.โ€

Without a word, the old man draws his sword and flicks it in the air at a passing fly. The fly buzzes away.

โ€œWhatโ€™s going on,โ€ the young man yells. โ€œI thought you were supposed to be the greatest Swordsman in the world. You couldnโ€™t even kill that fly.โ€

โ€œNo,โ€ the old man says. โ€œThat fly is not dead. But that fly will never again father children.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

THE WILD ARMENIAN BEAUTY

Does it also sometimes happen to you that you come across someone and instantly recognise his/her talent and start believing him/her to what first came to your mind?

In New Delhi, I had gone to visit a Kyrgyz friend. She brought along two of her beautiful friends. One of them was Nara. Now, when I first saw Nara, I thought she must be some Armenian actress. And, to add to my doubts she exuded a high level of confidence in whatever she did. We went to the Lodhi Garden and since I had the DSLR with me, I thought why not ask if I could take some pictures of her. It seemed a bit cheeky to ask but once I gained half of her confidence, she willingly smiled and started dancing ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, I have never actually tried photographing models, so I didn’t know what I was really doing. Add to that, this wild girl dancing here and there, and playing around and making it hard for me to focus my 50mm. You know, she’s one of those girls that always seems to be posing. It seemed I was trying to photograph a dancing dolphin, hehe (I know that sounds a bit stupid, but that’s how I really felt! ๐Ÿ˜› ) But, finally thanks to my Kyrgyz friend’s help, I finally got some keepers!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 & HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The World has finally ended ๐Ÿ™‚ … oops, ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I meant the Year has finally ended, hehe (you must be wondering why I am so happy with this ‘end-of-the-world’ phenomenon, huh! ๐Ÿ˜› Well, there’s an exciting secret here. Wanna know that?? Ehh, read on! I will tell you that in a moment) But now, we have a whole brand New Year again. My heartiest wishes goes to each one of you and I hope you achieve all your dreams, and a lot of happiness comes your way ๐Ÿ™‚ For most of my readers in the West and most parts of the World, I am pretty sure there’s still a lot many hours left for the New years’ eve ‘Golden Hour’. Moreover, I am writing this post way earlier than when it’ll get published. But still, you know this bloke from India is wishing the very best for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY?

Co-incidentally, today also happens to be my sister’s birthday. What a great time it must have been to be born today. The whole world is celebrating, rejoicing for the amazing things that have gone by the past year, and hoping the coming year is even more wonderful than the last. I am actually jealous, hehe. So, I thought of dedicating today’s post to her and to all those of you lucky people who were born today!

This is a picture of me and her that was taken recently. While going through my archives, I also found a picture that may have been taken about 20 years from today. That’s the one on the right. Wow! we’ve grown really fast, huh? I must say it feels so nostalgic to see pictures of our childhood and remember of all the naughty things we did. Awfully cute, hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜€

Ankur Sharma

Okay, now for all those hobbits who couldn’t control their appetite for the secret ๐Ÿ˜› Well, guess what. The Mayans are actually happy the World didn’t end this year. They wanted to party and invited me as the Chief-guest. Thinking that their jinga-la-la dance would be easy, I accepted it. (Click on that link. It might well give you your last laugh for 2012 or your first for 2013) Little did I know that they would also fall for the Gangnam Style, hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€ So how do you plan to celebrate your ‘Golden-hour’? New year wishes to you yet again!

India 2012 : The Apocalypse is Now

Have you wondered about all this Apocalypse and Doomsday predictions that have been coming up every now and then? Well, every-time I watch the News or anything, I must say I am really annoyed. Not that I believe in it but that media BS is still kinda fake.

Let me tell you what’s gonna happen. You see that tuk-tuk rider over there? Well, that’s YOU. Not really you as in you, hehe (I know, you don’t have to ride a tuk-tuk now! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Anyway, you also see that sudden streaks of red, blue and white? That’s this ‘Apocalypse‘ crap. Within moments of it passing, you can once again enjoy the beauty at your back. And that’s how it is.

As for this picture, this is the beautiful India Gate at New Delhi standing strong and tall on this ‘D-booms-day’ ๐Ÿ™‚
