Strasbourg Cathedral – 7

Votive candles in the cathedral. I’m not a religious person, of course, but the simple faith of people moves me. Each flame a prayer, a plea, a tear…..

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  2. Ditto on the religious part for me, Dr. Hb, but there is something very moving and spiritual about the quiet and the candles and the architect of some churches. I have faith in other ways but it always moves me to see votive candles lit like this. Thank you for sharing this. ❤

  3. I’m not a religious person, either. I feel the same when I walk into a church or temple.
    Beautifully capture, Dr. Hb!
