One Way Ticket To A Different World

I spent the last weekend by the holy river Ganges, trying to capture the beautiful, colorful and busy spiritual culture of the people around - the pilgrims to the ordinary masses to the sages and priests and to the annoying men who were trying very hard to get a shot of you in their cameras / phones. The whole experience was very enlightening for me as I have never been to any such strong spiritual arrangements. It didn't matter if I didn't look like them or if I wasn't a Hindu or that I may not understand their rituals. I felt welcomed and accepted. I attended the evening devotional event there and received many blessings. I loved it.

We Are What We Make Ourselves To Be!!!

How is it that when, for the same reason, a person is happy whereas the other is not!!!??? - Some crazy thoughts going on in my head of late...

Silence In Action - Electric Universe

I have been listening to Electric Universe a lot lately...takes you away into outer space leaving you in tranquility. LISTEN!!!

Love the color of this street lamp by my sister's house...always delivers every shot in a captivating burning tone.

How simple things tranforms one's perspective!!!

I wasn't prepared to see such a beautiful display of burning candles when I visited a Gurudwara (house of worship for the Sikhs) for the first time with my friend and her beautiful daughter, last diwali, and somehow managed to take some beautiful shots with my phone camera. Blessed was that day!!!

Fire fire burning last winter in the backyard.

We Are Not Real If We Dont Appreciate All Beauty

Rose tea that I try to enjoy as often...I always have it in this huge glass and would see how they surface to the brim and gradually lose their color...sometimes, some petals float around reminding me of a beautiful scene from the movie 'Perfume-story of a murderer' where a woman's body is kept afloat in a huge glass tumbler filled with water. The movie haunts yoo crazy.

I Don't Care If We Are Going Down

A stormy dark night. Lightnings and thunderstorms. Out of electrical power. Sitting alone on my balcony forever. With my camera. Lightning flashes. My camera flashes. Trying to capture the beauty. This was the best from the lot. Lightnings can be very shy.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

I usually like to capture things candidly and without much preparation, and when you get the perfect shot at one go (or sometimes after multiple trials racing against your patience), that satisfaction is most precious.

But this one needed some minor settings here and there (if you call placing tissues around it a set-up) and since I didn't have a camera handy at that moment, I used my phone camera. I don't like to edit or touch up my photos that much, so this is pretty much how it was in reality. The flames just mesmerized me.

Monstrously cute

Love how it camouflages with the greens. Nature truly is beautiful.

My sister's small garden has beautiful creatures. And flowers too.

Into The Greats

One never know which turn will come
Or what is on the other side of the wall
Only embracing it all will hope surface
One each time, when skywards the heart seeks.

Taken at 2:30pm, Mcleodganj.

The same taken at 7:30pm. Beautiful how the clouds seem to wrap around the enormous mountain of rock.

It’s a New Beginning

"There is the imagined. And there is the imagination".

I have always been fascinated with how the sun immerses itself gradually into the vast horizon. Sometimes its quick and sometimes it burns out slowly. I would be deeply captivated with such view every time, and try to capture it with any equipment, if not my memory. While organizing all my photographs I realized that I had actually snapped sunsets in all the places I have been. Maybe a series of blazing sunsets could follow through in this blog.

This is one of the most recent one, taken from my 4th floor apartment.
