The Selfie of Ravan Maker

That I love to travel is not a secret.  Not only distant dream destinations, I love to explore my own city also. For last few years it is my ritual to click pictures of Ravana under construction in Tatarpur and Tagore Garden area of West Delhi.  Right under the blue line of metro you can see Ravans under construction of all shape and sizes. Like every year I reached the Ravan market of Delhi and was trying to click pictures of Ravans under various stages of completion. There were Ravan heads lying on ground, with only one eye made, nearby [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Portrait of a Lady-  How I took these portraits

Story Behind Portrait of a Lady I clicked in Mehrauli Me and Tarun Gaur, my friend from Kerala Blog Express days was with me and we were trying to find our way out of the Jamali Kamali Complex ( Wait for a detailed post).

Portrait of a Chaiwala

From Chaiwala to Tea Ceremony in Japan With the Japanese Prime Minister Shinjo Abe hosting a traditional Tea Ceremony for our PM Narendra Modi, who started his illustrious career as a ChaiWala, life has come a full circle.

As the chaiwala adds fresh tea leaves to [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Charminar in Reflections

  Old Man With Charminar  These pictures were recently taken at Mecca Masjid near Charminar in Old Hyderabad. This old gentleman  is a regular  to the Mecca Masjid since his childhood and feeds the pigeons there. I requested him to pose for me and here is the result.

If you have [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]
