The photograph resembles most situations in life. We are all stranded like these birds; surrounded by deep waters from all sides. We all go through times when there is no hope in sight, no ray of light, no fucking semblance of getting it right. And yet somehow we wobble and hobble, dabble and paddle till the time the realisation dawns we have wings in the form of hope and faith, brain and heart. The joy is not from the flight but from the discovery of our mental limbs and the path towards finding them.
The Original photograph was taken from one of Vikas's albums from his trip to the Niagara Falls.
