It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.

—The Buddha


#WordlessWednesday 74

(Taken from my travel diary—On the headland between Galle and Unawatuna, roughly, a 2 km walk from the beach, is the Japanese Peace Pagoda on Rumasalla Hill—one of four Buddhist stupas in Sri Lanka, where you will find this statue of the Buddha.)


If you are new to #WordlessWednesday, but would like to participate, here’s how you can join Natasha and me—Just follow our three easy steps:

  1. Post a picture on your blog that speaks for itself. It could be from your adventures, experiments, life’s quirky moments, travels or just plain random shots. Absolutely anything that stoked your being.
  2. Add our badge to your post and add a backlink to our posts. 
  3. We’d love it if you read, comment and share all the posts linked here. 

See you on the other side of the frame. 

Happy #WW. 🙂

    “Peace” is perfect for the statue. If only….

    • Esha M Dutta

      I can feel the irony in your lines, Alana. So paradoxical of the times we live in, isn’t it?

  • Shilpa Gupte


    Precisely when we see no ray of hope!! 😀

    • Esha M Dutta

      Yes, dear Shilpa. So needed at the moment. Happy to see you stop by the blog and share your thoughts. <3
