[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sometimes we inherit our attitude and act like our primates when we do not think of others i.e the less fortunate ones. We call that attitude "Selfishness".
After a boat ride in Periyar lake, I saw a group of monkeys playing near the main gate. Someone threw a juice bottle. This monkey grabbed the bottle and immediately detached itself from the group, and started consuming it. I had a hearty laugh but then a lesson to learn - to give up my selfish attitude coz life is short."Life is indeed not measured by the moments of breath we take, but by those moments that take our breath away". I have learnt a lot thru contibutions posted by everyone on TE/TL and TN.

Hello Claude,
Very well said in your note about "SELFISHNESS" as well as reflected in the photograph captured by you. I appreciate your statement ."Life is indeed not measured by the moments of breath we take, but by those moments that take our breath away". TFS
