Creativity Carnival “Inspiration”

Shafali at Creativity Carnival, either draws sketches  or creates caricatures each week on Fridays, and asks the readers to respond to it by creating some posts, essays, short stories, poems or doodles.

This week’s prompt is a drawing of the ill-tempered Eve attempting to eat the forbidden fruit as seen from the caricature inserted below. You can view the full details of this challenge at this link titled “Creativity Carnival – Inspiration“.

Eve with apple

Inspiration is a kind of stimulation or feeling from within your soul, an innate urge to do something creative or useful generally for the betterment of life.

The urge to do something can be the result of seeing or watching something appealing to you from people around you or the incidents and circumstances around you. But getting inspired is generally positive in nature. Inspiration is attributed to positive thoughts only. Anything negative and destructive is not referred to as being the result of inspiration.

In the above caricature, on first glance, one will be looking at the act of eating the forbidden fruit by that ugly minded ( instigated by the satanic serpent) woman known as Eve. But if you look carefully, you can see other positive inspiring things also. There is the fallen apple, the sketch pencil, the feather and ink pot, etc.

So, instead of getting drawn by the evil thoughts and the ugly nature of things, you can look at it positively and appreciate the skills with which the figure has been created and get yourself inspired to draw wonderful drawings using the pencil, feather, ink.

If you are of research mentality like Sir Isaac Newton, you can analyse why the apple fell on ground instead of hanging in air and what are causes and the effects of it.

In our daily life, we can get so much inspiration by watching people or events and from the wonderful nature if we are positive enough to receive the signals. So one should be always positive and keep himself ever ready to receive the inspiring signals.

  1. An inspirational post, Mr. Venkatachary. Newton inspires us in more ways than one – doesn’t he? The apple could have two different symbolisms – one positive and the other negative. It could inspire the concept of gravity on one hand, and evoke fear and revulsion on the other. I do see a similar worm hanging at the left side of your blog 🙂

  2. True, Shafali. Everything can be looked in both dimensions. If we see negativeness, it will lead to evil perspectives and crimes. If we can see and catch the positive signals, it will make us constructive and creative.
    My worm on the left is only for drilling the ocean of knowledge and bring to surface the niche content. Not for preying and killing with deception.

    Thanks for your visit and nice comment. My blessings to you.
