Thoughtprovoking Cartoons

when life depends on others approval - its always precarious

vagaries of war
faith

the grass is not always greener on the other side
dont take things for granted - nobody is invincible
finally - personal favorite -
on going war between mind and heart

- special thanks to a friend for sending me this and many more :)

i like the faith...
and love ur interpretation of the the war b/w heart and mind one...
and the grass is not always greener on the other side..
but i think the first one is more like "performing/dancing for ur life"..
neway..

@raaji
who wins is more important :)

@cosmic joy
keep the faith :)

@vitruvian
they are left upto your own interpretations - what you say can also be true :)

all i meant is that if you live life with always seeking approval and applause from others then we are living on the edge of mental breakdown as soon as this support dwindles.....

my fav ..."the grass is not always greener on the other side" it never ever is...even i know..i still feel grass is greener on the other side.....i think i am insane.....

Sameera said...

That was really thought-provoking and the captions were cool!

Cinderella. said...

My fave - the last one.
Thats indeed what living and surviving are all about...
Neat !!

Cinderella. said...

Is the piece of poetry written under 'Virgin' yours...???

Its brilliant...awesome..!!!

And the closing verses...,

"...The gown bore the creases
Of their ecstatic nuptial
Virgin she was no more."

Man...!!!!!!
Too good...!!!!!!!

The last one makes me feel like the man is contemplating suicide. Hope that's not morbid!

@mel
thanks and you too have a nice day

c e e d y said...

@solitaire
yes, he is....but if you read closely it depicts a state of mind we all have....immediate circumstances in life want to make us destroy ourselves and our existence.....but there is something in our subconcious....that makes us not go over the edge....

you can add me....its fine...i will also reciprocate

Keshi said...

Preethi said...

Wow! loved them all. I'm always amzd at people who use their creative talents to somehow get the message across in a way that'll reach people. Mix humour with profound thoughts. A very difficult combination. Kudos to them and to you for posting it with your interesting interpretations. Will stay in my mind for days to come :)

ARCHITORTURER said...

Ceedy,

You have missed the true beauty of that first cartoon. Look at it again with eyes and mind wide open...

You don't need nobody's approval to LIVE your LIFE. Are you getting it??

Look at the image again!!

c e e d y said...

@torturer
welcome back....where di you disappear....guess you might have been in the dungeons....

i looked at it very carefully.....colorful people are over the edge and are relying on the dull ones.....what do you really want me to see..some out and say

rOhit said...

Last one was just awesome, so bloody true :)
Very good pics :D

ARCHITORTURER said...

Ceedy

Out of your darkest dungeon.....I have come to illuminate.

You are still not looking far beyond...Do you really believe that colorful people rely on dull people?

Let me ASK you this simple Questions...In the first cartoon, where do you see your self?? Are you among the audience or the Colorful people? And why are you there??

Preethi said...

@ ceedy: may i try? i'm curious

@ architorture: Dull people can never know what living on the edge means?!! They sit and watch the ones who are out there living it all - the colourful daredevils? Is that how u see it?

c e e d y said...

@preethi
sure you are welcome to have a banter with the torturer....

@torturer
actually i am no where in that cartoon - i am the director behind the scenes (always) - i create the edges instead of being on the edge

Pri said...
