Weekly Photo Challenge – Admiration


2 days back…29th April 2016 to be precise it was International Dance Dayย and this week’s Photo Challenge is about Admiration….so when you add up the two, the only person I could think of was my dance idol , my Guru – Smt Nivedita Mukherjee aka Shampadi for me…

Thanks Di for being a part of my life…blessed to be your student!!


Last rays of the sun...

Lazing by poolside when I caught this moment little did I think that it would turn out spectacular….love the pink circles giving a definiton to the ray of light…

Bhava – A transition

As a bud blossoms elegantly into a flower, such is the beauty of the transition of a woman.

Getting ready ...

Getting ready …

From being a shy nubile girl to a woman who unmindful of rules and norms set by society sets forth ย to meet her lover.

When Lovers meet:-)

Young Love

Her journey then to becoming a young mother who turns into a child herself in the presence of her little one.

Motherly Love

Motherly Love

Finally being the ultimate source of Shakti ย – the Shakti that can destroy all evil that seeks to disrupt this harmonious world of hers.

Shakti - Slayer of Evil

Shakti – Slayer of Evil

A woman represents each of these facets of Love and Compassion!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

Frankly speaking, Green is my least favourite colour when itย  comes to making choices for my wardrobe…. ๐Ÿ˜›

Having said that, I totally love the hues of Green the nature is painted in especially during the monsoons….its just refreshing and healing in the least!!

Sorry to be not able to capture “Out of the Box”,but below is my collection of “Greeny” captures….

It’s green down the road….

Clicked during one of my weekend early morning trips to the local Joggers’ Park, I found this pair of leaves clicked as it is on the border of the lake….made me pretty philosophical though!!

Wet and……Green

This was clicked in Mom’s garden during the onset of monsoons this year….one of my fav captures ๐Ÿ™‚

Dash of green

This was clicked on my way back from one of my cycling trips. The twig belongs to the “Tulsi” plant , considered as one of the holiest plants in the Hindu rituals and to spot this lying on the ground among the dust, brought an ironic smile to my face!!


Playing with Colours ….. II

In continuation to my design series, well here is the second and theย  final part.


Rangoli is an art of adorning houses with numerous dry colours which are mostly in powder form. It is a popular tradition in Western India and designs generally depict various floral motifs,birds, Gods and mythologicalย  stories.

As usual Ragini came up with a brilliant piece of Rangoli art…..kudos to the girl

Shivaji Maharaj


Well, the festive season is almost over and even the decorations are coming down, the bottles of goodies are nearing empty and I am already too sick of sweets and pharal ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Diwali to all of you!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Shubho Bijoya 2012

A collection of myriad images I came across this year during the Durga puja festivities…….each one represents a flavour of the festive season!!

This is the finale post in the Durga puja series ๐Ÿ™‚

Lamp and flower

Shine like the lamp but remain humble like the flower at the feet

Offering prayers

Have faith in what you believe in


The ghat that separates the God from the mortals

Mahishasur — the Demon

Existence of Evil is necessary to understand the Importance of Good

Shubho Bijoya to everyone…..!!!

Aqualife 2012

Waking up early on Sunday morning and getting ready to visit an exhibition is an herculean task atleast by my standards(which are pretty high!!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

So last week, when some of my friends mentioned about this aqua exhibition “Aqua Life 2012”ย  held in the city college, I decided to go for it atleast for my camera’s sake. Well, forgoing my beauty sleep didn’t wear me off that much as did the heat,humidity and long waiting period ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Waiting and waiting and waiting……

To be frank, the exhibition was sort of a downer for grown-up kids like myself. There are a couple of reasons to this other than the basic variety of fishesย  displayed. First of all, it really pisses me off to make kids waiting and secondly when you are running a ticketed show, please make sure you’ve enough counters and staff to handle the crowd already heated up due to the long waiting period.

Cool Dude like Dad ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yeah, Anikait (my friend’s son) was one happy fellow with just two words in his vocab for the day – Turtle and Fish.

Playing around with him was the fun part!!
