PLAYING GOD

I am busy playing GOD these days ,

I have made the sky bluer ,

the trees and leaves cleaner,as if just polished and scrubbed

maidens fairer and prettier than they are,

clothes fancier ,their colours richer more beautiful than when bought


but i couldn't get the smiles on faces,the sparkle in their eyes,

or bring people together,and make them happy

so ,asked the big G,if He could allow me to do, JUST that !!!


"I have original copyrights on that one",said big G smiling.

I played god today and re-viewed history


today, i finally learnt how to use 'adobe photoshop' on my computer

and now am busy altering the way we look at the world.

i used to see adobe photoshop as a corrective software that can be used to cover up the mistakes done while taking a picture... or forging a snap ... this post offers a better & positive perspective .....
these mountains look familiar?uttaranchal?

HE may have the original copyrights on manythings..but we sure can do our good deed for the day...

nicely written...

Nabeel said...

yup photoshop is nice, moderation is the key.

G U R U said...

Maybe the big G is still trying to figure out how to use his version of the photoshop:) And maybe that's why he spoke about copyrights and stuff, to avoid getting embarrassed!

How do we know said...

too much!!

Gazal said...

:) Nice thought,

flyingstars said...

This is just beautiful...the words and the picture...lovely....now you will be really playing god with photoshop, which indeed makes picture miraculous at times. I can suggest another software to you, i.e picasa for minor corrections but is very easy to use...nice work!

as for the recipes in my blog, I have just introduced it lately, which I'm going to post occasionally. You can get the info. from the main page of my blog now. Thanks:)

Guruprasad said...

good pic... i've never used photoshop before but i've seen some of the god-like miracles it can perform!

but on a different note, have you heard of the one where the scientist meets god and says that i've finally cracked the code and i can now create the entire world just like you did. its not big deal. let's have a competition and create two new worlds and lets see who's world is better.

so god agrees. and they meet at the a pre-determined place and time. on the word 'go' the csientist bends down to pick up a handful of mud as the raw material to build his world. god says 'oh no you don't, get your own mud!'

“dear GOD, thanks for your brush stokes tonight over this horizon, the sky was cleaner, air was fresh, may be it was a little effort or a child’s play on your part, But a ‘big leap to the history of human being’ and if all other GODs, small and big, play their part and clean their part of the copyrighted domicile, definitely it will bring smile, sparks in eys one day to human existence. Thank you for your smaller effort of repainting an old canvas in your colour.”

The pic was great. But greater was the poem aka the poetic expression. The software must be flattered.
