The Kaleidoscope

Nithila enjoying the patterns...

The Kaleidoscope is a perfect example of the human Fascination for geometric symmetry. Invented by Sir David Brewster in 1816, this simple gadget has long fascinated both adults and kids alike for the same reason. When Nithila wrote to Santa for her Christmas gift wish this year, Kaleidoscope was right there on top of the list. And I was as excited as my daughter to receive this gift from Santa.. Let your Christmas and the coming year be as colorful and exciting as these patterns I clicked through the fascinating Kaleidoscope.

Merry Christmas !!!

Autumn Leaves...

Wrinkled faces – worn and old
Hardened hands – frowny brow
Senses blurred- numb and cold
Memories move- to and fro
Lonely lives –sticks to hold
Tireless waves – of sorrow
Night and day – tales retold
Silent wait - for tomorrow
Autumn leaves –brown and gold
Meanings change – as we grow…
