A cycle happens to be #Samajwadi party’s symbol and the picture represents something else!!





Happiness can be very tricky at times if you are not clear with what you expect from life. One of my friends says this all the time, “You can be surrounded by a lot of problems and not feel good. Alternatively, you can simply wake up each morning and thank God for another beautiful day in life and try to make the best of it.” Or as another friend says it, “Happiness is a way of life.” This is my new year resolution as well – be happy, and do things that make me happy.

After being stuck in traffic, I had finally reached Nagarcoil having spent 1 hr 45 mins for a 20 kms distance! Its then that I came across this tea vendor at the bus stop. He seemed more than happy to see me given that there aren’tĀ  many Sikh peopleĀ  around in this area or for that matter state.

An infectious smile was accompanied with a very refreshing tea. The tea device that you see here is something I saw in Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the areas that I travelled. A unique travel experience indeed!




Kolkata is well-known as the city of joy, though I am yet to find good reason for this city to deserve this title. The sight of a human pulling the weight of another human(s) on this rickshaw makes me extremely sad. The analogy is that of a human doing the work of an animal. There are people who use avail this without getting bothered. Many among them are fat married Bengali woman, who are unable to carry their own weight. Wish this torture in the name of work comes to an end some day ….


The inhuman machine

The orange beauty

This picture was shot at my home in Ajmer. This is one of the beautiful flowers in our garden at home. It is things such as these that help me forget the frustrations and bring peace. The camera used was Panasonic Lumix FH-24.
