#Freedom, #peace and #silence..... Do we really know what they mean? Here is my ephiphany

Freedom - something that we all crave for.... something that we all aspire to.

Is freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of movement, freedom of press, freedom of this and freedom of that - the ultimate form of freedom?

Over the Easter weekend, observing these two lionesses walking in the Savannah made me realize that what we call freedom is nothing but a glorified form of civil captivity.

Watching these two beautiful creatures strolling with an air of sovereignty, made me understand that FREEDOM means openness. I understood freedom means having choices, means having autonomy. Freedom is all about nonconformity and inventiveness......

Having had this epiphany I could not but ask myself the question as to whether what  we call freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of movement, freedom of press is real Freedom?

Peace.... is another value that the vast majority of humanity craves for....

Watching these two elephants playing and entertaining each other, made me realize that peace  is more than just the absence of war and definitely more than just tranquility.

PEACE is a profound experience. One that if everyone were to experience it, we would become better human beings.

Silence: The final gift of my safari experience was the realization that silence is more than just absence of noise and  more than just stillness,

SILENCE is beauty...., Silence is having the right frame of mind to spot, observe, take in and enjoy beauty in everything that we come across in our daily lives.
