Lots of talks of recession in the US going on..
wonder if many would head homewards...
How many will be able to hold on..

Often i wonder..
what is it really that makes people want to stay here?
There is definitely something that i am missing..
or is it just the grass on other side green syndrome.

There is more darkness in the world in the day than the night shows us.
The darkness that dooms over the society, is far more dangerous than the darkness of night.
How can we make the world a better place to live?

.. the other side.

The other side

When will humans stop thinking that the grass on the other side is greener?
I guess never.. as these are the most basic of human thoughts...

When will one stop thinking that I would have been better doing what I am not doing currently and something that I could have done IF i had taken the other path, leading to the other side?
Well now that you are NOT doing the thing you thought you would be better doing it...Its wise to start putting your heart and soul into the thing you are doing in order to do it better than the thing on the other side.

Miss the colors..

Fall Colors
miss the colors.
been a while since i saw some bright colors.
I think i should wear some bright colored clothes for some days..
hopefully that will help me out of the gloom.

the wind..


Its the wind that kills the life forms..
the cold is a direct component of it...

... to ignore or not.

Another Face of India had an online discussion regarding the subjects we shoot.
Often i wonder...
is it these scenes i miss when I shoot here?
had this discussion about the genuine compassion and the personal ambition.
pretty interesting thoughts here....

All Gray

Gray Scale

with the weather around...
with the numerous things going on..
life seems gray all around me.

A feeling...


.. sometimes I get this feeling ..
that the base is weak.
that the waves are strong...
that prohibits me from carrying on..

to reach the shore ..
to where I have not been before..
to a land of dreams and desire..
to be in a state of bliss I aspire.

Any one interested?

.. feel lonely...
leading to becoming lost...
the things want to keep me busy ..
i say to myself.. take it easy..
don't want to panic..
feel i miss the love tonic..

School Again an article in the NY times front page today.
Surprising that the place that they went to survey was in my home state , where needless to say the education needs immediate and urgent attention.

Waiting for the sunset
of the times when u were happy.
of the times when the things were good.

Tuesday, January 15, 2008


with so many things going around..
i think its necessary for me to pause..
and concentrate on less things..

Its better to do one thing well than trying to do ten things badly.

Often I think...

Should I call?

...about my existence...
...what was the purpose of me coming to this world.
What am I here for?
What is it that I am doing?

Am i happy doing what I am doing.

Study room

brings about awareness.
i feel that it is perhaps the only solution
to an eradication of poverty.

A lonely traveller...


..I am.
...wanting to capture the entire world in his eyes...
...even if i am able to do even 25% of the countries on the planet..
I will consider my life well spent!

Feel the force...

Waters of the Pacific

...of time passing by your ears... a whooosh..
...of its liquidity..
...of having life on the fast track..

Does it have a form..
Can you feel it?

Is it felt the same always?

On the road again...

Highway to Heaven.. I am..
on the roads again..

the roads seems long...
the destination is far..
the journey must go on..
and on.. and on..

Life is all about a journey that one takes..
the people u meet..
the places u see.

Just one of those days....

Shades of Grey

... when all u feel is gray...
no color around u ..
no enthu to think of things going around u ..
when u just wanna sit and stare into the horizon..
and let the waves wash ur feet everytime..

Have u ever seen time?

A wonder called Grand Canyon

In the Grand Canyon, the time seems to stand still.. the mountains are a testimony to the thousands of years that have passed... a bare witness to all the winds that have blown over the landscapes...
The beauty is mesmerizing and as a photographer, one can but only awe at mother nature and her creations.
