The lonely passages of the corridor, the shiny flooring and the continuous lamps, yes I have been witnessing them from last few days as I push the wheel chair of my wife to give her some relief walking after her painful treatment. The life on the floor has the same destiny for all the patients getting treated. Whats the hope? The hope lies in each room with its big windows facing the square yard territory of the hospital. As human we tend to see the other side of the coin, while walking I could not stop peeping inside each room and realised each room has its window of hope and that is how it has been destined. Well lets talk a bit about these windows which faces the city, the railway lines, the green corridor and the apartments attached to the hospital. Each has a unique view and vibrancy which makes the room lit up differently. Well when a soul is in pain the most important thing he ask for is not money but for these windows which give him the hope to see the beautiful world outside, but as mind gets stronger than the silence these windows stays where they are forgotten until you visit them again.
The windows of hope give relief when the trees behind them pushes the leaves to get a smile on your face, when the city skyline brings the metro on the track to make you enjoy the mobility and the vastness of buildings, when the railways pushes itself through the green corridor between the trees and bushes, and when you see kids watching you through their apartments wondering what behind those big windows. Yes the windows of hope.

They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends. The process of creating infographics can be referred to as data visualization, information design, or information architecture. (Wikipedia)
- Show the design through data visualization which depicts a story.
- Make your design appealing to the senses, each part within, must be integrated with the parent design.
- Use a vector software to create your design, keep the graphics and text layers separately
- Always consider to style your infographics with icons and graphics depicting the theme.
- Avoid relying too much on typography, show different ways of depicting numbers and numeric signs like plus, minus or percentage. Use basic features like creative pie charts, bar graphs.
- Use typography for headings and titles, to grasp attention.
- Break your data into meaningful headings via strong and catchy titles, supporting different parts of your info graphics.
- Prototyping the infographic is the best way to start. Break you data into meaningful layout and start doing the paper sketch. Visualize as you are putting the sketch and fill pencil colors into your data to see how the concept is building up. This will save you lot of time, to realign your mistakes.
- Start with the beginning concept, the middle information and the ending concept, this will open up a meaningful insight for the user.
- Identify each section of your infographic with a different color breaks. Avoid repetitious design.
- Make sure to highlight the "key take away" of your infographic as the center of attraction, as this is what the user is looking for. Make sure the "key take away" becomes the center part of your graphic.
- Avoid using dark colors or typical gradients with glow effects. Also try "not to use" typical white backgrounds,which might fail to address the starting and the ending point of your graphic.
- Stick to a three color palette, make the lightest as your background, the other two could depict the content. You can also use lighter tones of your primary colors to fill the other color gaps.
- Use the online color picker websites like Adobe Kuler etc. to make your palette.

I call my world the duplicate, because it overlaps all the happiness which god had planned for me.
It is you who reminds me the moments, we could have spent, and the life we could have lived, but next what I have? is to live up to this world I created for myself.
There is happiness here because he the god has a part to play, there are moments to be remembered from here because the moments are there which reflects. There is life which I live here because I created the one, the one I call the duplicate.
All what I can ask you is that one day from your life, that one moment which make me meet my real world, the world he created for me, some where hidden, yet to be find.
All what I can ask you is that one day from your life....to make me meet myself and you whom god created for me.

Nor fresh air, nor stale smog, he sits in one congested square, nor birds singing, nor winds humming, all he hears is the clock pinging Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
Nor sunlight, nor sunset, he works far off from what all gets, the natural process is not his style, he is designed to work amid the tiles, and ubiquitously the clock flies Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
Nor Food for life, or drinks to gratify, he picks on loads to fill his neither appetite, nor energy he gains or quality he retains, strive to the clock which always talk Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
Life like machine, living in his neither attitude, nor time he gets to sport, nor time for privileged journey. Soul on a single track, the bed to sleep and the square to keep, sounds the ugly clock Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
He has one wife, and a sweet son, and she just realized that his dad is no more fun. Lost in his observation and out of full attention, he lives by the click which sounds Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
Windows are dark and windows are bright, but her love is now just out of sight. Pledges were taken and life once awakens, but those days are now avidly shaken by Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
Empty his house; Empty his life, no one left to rejoice his flight. Billions he earned and Billons he dare, love ones have gone not to enjoy their share. The walls with frames now have dust of shame. Departed with sun and Departed with moon, Life did gaze at that empty roof. Silence in his home and Silence in his cadaver, spirit on its way to forgive him never.
Found between the silences of existence. Life external life gives him full attention, nor does he care the clock nor does he bear the click, once mislaid his life in Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock

Fifteen years of my childhood spent in this beautiful valley so close to my heart so close to my memories drives backwards my soul to live that era again.
Green trees and red leaves, lonely paths with cock-crow sunshine, small valley with fresh mountains the heart with a serene lake, is all what I remember when I recollect the memories of my childhood days.
I belong to the nature’s paradise located on a small hill station of Uttaranchal. Nainital is the name of my beautiful town the name one must have heard several times, whenever planning to visit a hill station in north India.
The blue winters with snowfall, with a sheet of black and white memories, those warm peanuts cracking in your mouth and the numbness of your hands.Walking across the beautiful Naini Lake and talking to the impulsive waves, those hazy and windy months, with flying crows and birds like drunk.
The autumns in the swathe of plovers, still glances for some warmth from the golden sunrise, walking across the pathways just flowing out of the unpolluted terrain. The unspoken paths and the wintry rocks folds each bend of your journey to suspense, walking across the valley covered by the bushy trees and chasing the golden rays as waking towards heaven.
The festive seasons holds its warmth, with twilight sparkling across the season, the moonlight covering the city with the diminutive colorful bulbs hanging across the soundless mountains. Glowing illumination floating with the waves of the water makes the evening signing in its glory. The stars touching the crest and the winds making the resonance brings the joy of life in the serene valley of festivals.
The bright summers brings the joy of life, makes the valley crowded with colorful kids and sparking couples singing in joy.The old in their youth with a click of a morning walk, feeling the warmth of the valley.
The purity of those days is there just in my memories; living in a fast paced world surrounded by unfulfilled errands, wall of aspiration now always throttle me, to complete my obligation which trapped my simplicity. Some day, I will set out to the heaven I have found on earth and live by my memories which I glimpse deep in my heart today.
Fifteen years of my childhood spent in this beautiful valley so close to my heart so close to my memories drives backwards my soul to live that era again
