The shadow never leaves...

Midnight Mass @ St John's Church ~15

One just needs to reach out to the source of light..
to view them.
Often the shadows say something that the normal eyes fail to see.

It was a great time I had.
A definitely new learning experience.

Go Play....

Go Play

Even in the worst of times, sports helps to ease the mind.
There is nothing more satisfying than sweating it out for an hour!

Just a small milestone. Profile views crossed 50k on Flickr.
I like to keep track of such things.
Attaching images, objects, moments to a particular occasion helps one remember it better!
Ain't it?

When I was deciding on what to do for a living, some years back, my father said that "Son, do whatever you want to do. But be "good" in it! "

Good design is a lot about practice.. being able to think in concrete concepts and supporting your design with an design argument.

Running away from Danger

The hardest things to leave you are the ones you enjoy the most.
If you can detach yourself from something so easily, it means you did not enjoy doing it in the first place.

Want to get back to swimming soon.... But its so cold in here!

Today and Tomorrow..

Today and tomorrow..

Jo hua, achha hua.
Jo ho rahahai, achha ho raha hai.
Jo hoga, voh bhi achha hoga.

Tumhara kya gaya ki tum rote ho?
Tum kya laaye the jo tumne kho diya?
Tumne kya paida kiya tha jo nasht ho gaya?

Jo liya, yahin se liya.
Jo diya, yahin par diya.

Jo aaj tumhara hai, kal kisi aur ka tha, aur parso kisi aur ka ho jaayega.

Parivartan sansaar ka niyam hai.

Essence of the Bhagavad Gita.



The feeling of avoiding being lonely in a crowd.
Always thinking that there is someone with you...

A pathfinder


I desperately need one..
Where can i find one...
Isn't the journey of life ;
meant to be journeyed alone
You come alone.. you go alone...

Why do we crave for a partner...
Why do we crave for a pathfinder?

Am I homeless

For a Living

Was sitting on a street at Kirkwood,
was waiting for the bus.
There comes this chick siping budweiser,
offers it to me (and my friend).

Did she think of us as homeless?

Its so difficult to deal with the problem of a homeless in a different country, especially having been with many homeless kids in India.

Being homeless...

Drawing room

Homelessness is the condition and societal category of people who lack fixed housing, usually because they cannot afford a regular, safe, and adequate shelter. The term "homelessness" may also include people whose primary nighttime residence is in a homeless shelter, in an institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized, or in a public or private place not designed for use as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings. A small number of people choose to be homeless. An estimated 100 million people worldwide are homeless.

Been working on a project for the homeless as a part of the curriculum.
The emotional content involved with the project is really strong.

Burn within...


Have you ever felt a desire burn you from within?
The wanting to do a certain thing before its too late..

Want to shoot the fall before its too late.
Everyday I have been watching a particular tree since the past few days...
and wonder if tomorrow will be the right time to shoot it..
Perhaps waiting for it to turn colors completely.

Doing things you love...

The worker...

Don't you miss the things you loved doing some time?
What is stopping you from doing it today ?

Don't you remember being happy in what you did?
What is making you sad today ?

Why let the circumstances come in your way of happiness?
Why not let it just take care of the sadness?

Remembering the portrait days.
will be back so shooting portraits soon.

Everyday you met someone new...

Some impress...
Some fail to do so...
Some have an everlasting impression on the heart...
Some are just worthy of a glance..
Some not even that.

It does not matter where u go together..
Or what you spoke about..

What really mattered was
if both were happy together,
if both enjoyed their time together.

I stood there...

i stood there...

I stood there...
Till the end of time..
Till the stars did not shine..

I felt each water droplet touch me..
i felt it just could not be ...
The force touching my soul..
the waters creeping through the hole..

I stood there...
wishing for you to be back..
wondering what it was that i lack..

An addiction...

One last puff | Chickpet

It always starts from a small step..
A small process...
One single puff...
One short gulp..

How many addictions have you accumulated over the past year?

A Different Eye...

Shooting Me

Guess it's important as a photographer to look at things through a different eye at times..
Many a times one does not realize the beauty of things if not seen through a non-conventional channel.

I Miss You...

Locked Dreams

Every corner of the heart cries for you..
Every moment I am reminded of you..
Whenever I am in solitude..
and in awe of the moment of truth..
I feel for you..

Was i too fortunate to land up here..
Was i selfish to leave you and not be near..

I will be back soon my dear...
I will be back , so do not fear..
I will be back.

In times of solitude...

Even the logs are company.
You wish to speak to them..
Listen to the silence with them...
Every shadow is a reflection of oneself...

Recognize oneself...


There is a time in the day
when i am unable to recognize myself..
the land and the skies seems to blend into one.
the reflections blend into reality...
the shadows overpower the figurine...

A journey begins...

Start Counting...
The pillars of abundance starts from one cent.
Should I start counting?

A heartening sight
new friends..
new buddies..
new partners..
new places..
new people..
Life is changing constantly.

The ripples effect

Ripple effect
It starts in the center.. the message percolates through the medium...
The effect can be felt far away.. far away in the distance..

Isn't that true of rumors?
