"Allen Ginsberg liked Calcutta best,because it was a city which honoured poetry and where poets were worshipped like minor gods.It was also here that he made his most lasting friendships with the great Bengali poets Sunil Gangopadhyay and Shakti Chatterjee."-Deborah Baker
Something very satisfying about knowing your favourite poets were friends.
Exploring North Ossetia with @itsbaaat
“I do not post just beautiful photos of nature,” Russia Instagrammer Batraz Butaev (@itsbaaat) explains of his love for the inspiring natural beauty of the North Ossetia region. “I share my memories of the most important moments spent with my friends in my favorite places, such as the snow-covered mountains, deep forests, mountain roads and waterfalls.” Following Baltraz’s lead, the local Instagram community has also starting using the #exploringossetia hashtag to share their own picturesque photos of the area. As he explains, “I wanted to have a common gallery with my friends, showing how beautiful nature is in the North Ossetia region.”
Even as I watch the world fall apart around me,even as I helplessly watch children being slaughtered and humanity falling apart…I truly believe this.
Don’t get me wrong,I’m not Gandhian by any means.But we will be emancipated only when there is-in the words of Tagore-not merely external conformity but an internal union of hearts.
I look forward to the day when we identify as children of this world before anything else-before a nationality,race or religion.

"It"s not for money and favour that we kneel before our work from morning to evening,continuing by candlelight through the night to the point of blindness and sacrifice ourselves for pictures and books,it’s to escape the prattle of others,to escape the community,but in contrast to this passion to create,we also want those we’ve forsaken to see and appreciate the inspired pictures we’ve made"

if you use the bible as an excuse towards being anti gay dont forget that:
- torn clothes (like ripped jeans)
- wearing clothing made from 2 different fabrics
- cutting your hair
- and working on Sundays
are all listed as abominations in the bible as well
