Charity begins at home. So does adventure, I guess. A little trotting off the tar road can lead you to an environment devoid of honking horns , death defying traffic, polluted poisonous air, mobile notifications, over population and scheming distractions….full story here.
Found this woman praying in one of the temples of Gokul. Half my mind was busy enjoying the stark play of light, the image formed before me and how could I encase that in my camera. The other half of my mind was toying with the following :
Prayer is something I have always found intriguing. I do it too, mostly because I have been taught to. One should pray to thank the almighty as well as ask for help when losing hope.
Somehow its too selfish of a way to understand God. So, essentially He is some one who listens to your requests of earning more money, becoming more popular, getting higher grades and so on. Funny ain’t it. It’s like he has nothing more important planned for today than your menial askings. And we don’t stop there, we also offer him gifts for His services. Money, food, sacrifices of other animals (which were also put on this planet by Him, by the way)
What if praying was more of an exercise in self motivation. We pray to gain control over things we don’t understand. For example destiny, outcome, weather, life and death. What if praying only took the result anxiety off your shoulders, so that you focus more on performance and do better at it, which translates into better results. So was it really Someone pulling the strings so far, or was it just you improving yourself.

It’s always fun to head out with your camera and rejoice in the golden light on a cool winterish morning . Its even cooler to do that for your friends who want to get their pictures clicked, more so as a memory they’d love to cherish later. So when I got such an opportunity I couldn’t say no and squeezed out time from an academic-heavy schedule for some wandering and being lost.People maketh places.
Here are a few pictures.

It had been a long time since I had posted anything. Plus I’m tired of putting studies before hobbies, but alas that’s a medical student’s karma. Heck nevertheless I did venture out today to catch some winter light and was relieved to have a relaxing, pleasent morning.
No matter how much work weighs you down, one should always value, respect and find time for an activity you unconditionally love.
Stroll down the road. Humm that song aloud. Breathe fresh air. Cook your favorite food. Ditch the calorie counter. Go for a run. Read a new book. Meet old friends. Thank people you always wanted to. Call old pals. Click a crazy picture. Make memories. Move.

Some pictures from today.
Have fun. Good day. Keep coming. God bless.
It is that time of the year again. Display of human faith in all mighty in its colorful and intriguing avataar.
Glad to tell everyone that a picture I had clicked a few years back in one of my most memorable road trips to Ajanta-Ellora caves has made it to official Maharashtra Tourism Print adverts for promoting tourism here. Happy and encouraged to see my pictures being used with due credit.
Thanks to San Sp, senior member of Focus Bangalore Photography Club for designing the prints. They look cool.
Here is the actual picture and a link to the blog post.
