Osho Rajneesh introduced this word – Gestalt to me and since then I loved its meaning.

Gestalt – a configuration or pattern of elements so unified as a whole that it cannot be described merely as a sum of its parts

I believe that its all about how one is seeing and what is the frame of reference. There is no absolute truth nor otherwise.

For all this while, I avoided writing a blog as I always felt inadequate. Over time, I have reconciled to express from my reference point, as my Gestalt. Which may not be yours and that’s perfectly fine.
