A couple of weekends earlier, with an amazing group of photographers from Pune, under the banner of Pune Photo Lovers, we went to Mumbai for a photowalk for a day. The route was simple, from the CST to Gateway of India and back via the Leopold Cafe. The 50 mm prime being the only lens with me, it was an amazing experience to restrict myself … Continue reading TTL: Mumbai

When it comes to being optimistic, there is no better symbol to the feeling than an impending sunrise. The glow is there, yet the sun is not yet visible. We know that with the advent of the new day, our demons shall be slain and we shall have a fresh start. Good morning dear readers!! Continue reading A New Day
Once a while, I face situations where despite having some ideas on my head, am just not able to put them down in a manner I would love to. There’s restlessness and simultaneously lethargy. A part of me wants to work, while the other part is just stuck or hung up on something else. Last time this happened, I took a trip across the country … Continue reading Creative block
Here’s how a solid circle, a tiny rock and a shadow can mean quite a lot. Continue reading A circle, a stone and a shadow

Now a days, it seems there are photo opportunities everywhere. Slowly, the 50mm i.e 75mm on my Nikon D3100, frame is getting set on the eye. I can guestimate the rough frame even without the camera. Guess, the regime has begun showing its effect already. This was the scene today as I woke up and went to brush my teeth. The lone crow, keeping watch. … Continue reading OCOL: Early Morning Watch
We come here every single day to eat, chat, chatter. Sometimes with our friends, or maybe solo. It’s always full and buzzing. This hall sees us more than our classrooms and maybe knows us better too. Calm, serene and all absorbing, the mess hall. I feel, a mess hall is an apt example of change in progress. Year after year, batch after batch, they come … Continue reading OCOL: The Mess Hall
Last year, around this time, I was in Bangalore, with a bunch of colleagues who turned out to be close friends, smearing each other with colour and having fun. This year, am at my granny’s place, in the town where I was born, the gateway to the North East India, nestled at the foothillls of the Shivalik mountain ranges, Siliguri. Anyway, its Holi again. The … Continue reading TTL: Holi @ Siliguri
