Relativity – Not just a concept

Relativity is not meant to stay in Physics text books. It’s a part of our lives.

Have you ever observed how photography can make things look closer and bigger? Something that’s small depends on where you are looking from.

Life is no different. We see everything relative to some other thing.

“They are rich”.

“She is beautiful.”

“Her life is one that of luxury.”

“They travel a lot”.

“He has lost a lot of weight”.

“She owns a villa.”

You get the drift? So, even before you think of comparing one thing to the other, know that it’s all about where you are looking from.

  1. Awesome click. This is definitely food for thought. How we perceive things and from what angles? And those angles? Where do they come from?

    True that. It’s all a matter of perspective- whether you’re looking down, up, ahead or back.

    Well said, Parul! Most of the times, we make judgements based on what we see…and not what we know. In short, we ought to look before we leap! And, change our perspectives. 🙂 And, stop making those judgements!

    Superb click, Parul. Loved the analogy. It’s all about perspective. Such a beautiful thought put across in simple words! 😀

    Lovely picture and an absolutely brilliant post. We always look at life a certain way, but once we change our perspective, things look so different!

  7. Very true!! And great photo!

    It’s all about perspective. We need to look inwards rather than at things/people around us.

    Great post, Parul. We see what we are looking for and sometimes miss what we are actually seeing. The picture is as beautiful as the post 🙂

  10. Ah! I loved the analogy here! Perception is everything indeed!

  11. True that many things that we do or think are relative. Pic is great.

  12. Yes, your words are so true! We live a life full of comparisons. Every action of ours, everything we own is compared. It would be so good, if we appreciated what we had rather than comparing oneself with others.

  13. It’s so true Parul and we often judge people or make hypothetical observations which are often flawed. One should avoid comparisons with others but grow at every juncture in point.

  14. Its all about perspectives indeed. And its amazing how the same thing can have different perspectives amongst many individuals. So even if its photography or our own eys and mind, it is the way we get to look at it!

    Yes it’s all a matter of perception . From which angle you are seeing things. Loved the photo and deep thoughts this first day of Diwali

  16. Alice Gerard says:

    Interesting viewpoint about making comparisons and looking at things from different perspectives.

  17. Life is always about perspective. I love the analogy. It’s wonderful to see the happy pictures online and get sacked into a vortex of sadness but we have no idea what the test if their lives are like. Always a good thing to exercise compassion.

    Absolutely loved your views. Specially in this age of social media, one can easily fall victim to comparisons.
