Pre DSLR Era...


Was digging the external hard drive for some important data few minutes back and suddenly banged to this lying in an unattended corner in a recovery folder which made many old memories alive and made me realize how fast time really flies!!
This is one among the very first few clicks from the newly acquired Canon SX100 IS back in the early 2007. At that point of time 10x optical zoom was really huge. The camera which taught me the basics of digital photography still makes my backpack heavy 24x7 though it does not produce this kind of deadly images these days after travelling all around and extensive use in many extreme weather conditions, still can compete with any expensive gear... All thanks to my cousin Jipy Bhai for carrying it from USA in that ERA.

Been there Done that!

What a nostalgia it is!!! 2 years back on the same day I just rolled down from the hills with a heavy heart and dampen eyes... The fortnight long dream ride almost came to an end when we hit Manali travelling from Keylong. I was sad like anything and it gulped down all the words coming in the mind and at the same time I was getting irritated finding myself so close to the plains. Why why Why I need to come back to the same life again, same people all around and ofcourse the same old lost memories! Absolutely nothing excited to create a mild curve on face. I so much wanted to stay there not only all the time but for couple of more life, simple innocent unknown people around but loveable than most known, a smile from a unknown at every node but sweeter than whom you loved, 10 minutes of friendship and 5 minutes of chit-chat but memorable than any hour long gossips... Enough, 13 seems to show it's lucky charm again... Yes, 2013 ;)

Daily Dose: 25 July 2011


Wish if I could scream like this... The reason behind, you are neck deep in work and need to drive real fast to reach at your goal post, at the same time rather than concentrating on the road ahead and focusing on driving... you got a panic attack and blaming that the wheels are just clamped... such a waste ME is!!!

Come on BOY, just try to scream and get out of it... the road ahead seems to be pretty straight.

[Photo Info: A fantastic piece of graffiti decorating a dead wall somewhere here in Nottingham. Just enjoy the level of detailing here, can you notice the soil pipe!! Another piece of brilliant work.]

William James truly said, "Where ever you are, it is your FRIENDS who make your world".

Cheers Guyz.

P.S. Many people do complain that I hate human beings in my photographs... And photo-shoots of many are still pending. So now a series will follow from the archive, as I never posted them before.

A small tea break from work ;)


This photograph was taken almost a month back in a traditional European tea house here in Nottingham. Such a nice and cozy place it was, and I was completely impressed with the variety of tea available there. This place deserves a long and extended post, hopefully will do that soon.

Do lookout for me, will keep popping in between...

My archive list is almost empty like this bottle, I clearly even can not remember when I last clicked... Damn!
But yeah, it is just a phase in life. At least I learnt now how NOT to carry the camera 24x7, I literally don't feel bad to walk anywhere without my gears these days.
Just few more weeks, 'Daily Dose' is on vacation now following my FB account, but definitely 'm missing and will miss all your comments/complements underneath.


And have a RELAXED weekend...

Happy 'RathaYatra'

Jagannath Swami... Nayana patha gaami... Bhaba tume.
Lord Jagannath, Lord Subhadra and Lord Balabhadra (From R-L)
Jagannath Temple, Hauz Khas, New Delhi

'Ratha' means Chariot or Car and 'Yatra' means Festival. 'Ratha Yatra' or 'Car Festival' is one of the very important festivals celebrated by Hindus, originated from Lord Jagannath Temple, Puri, Orissa but celebrated all over the world. On this auspicious day, only once in a year, deities Lord Jagannath, Lord Subhadra and Lord Balabhadra come out of the Temple and travel by huge traditional chariots being pulled by people. The procession goes to Lord's aunt's Temple where they stay for 9 days. On the 10th day deities return to their temple in respective chariots.
Non Hindus are not allowed inside the Jagannath Temple, it is believed, once in a year Lord comes out to see his devotees who could not get into the temple.

Huge chariots for deities at Grand Road, Puri, Orissa

Wish you all a very happy Ratha Yatra, may God bless you.
