..today was discussing with one of my friends about staying in an apartment. We were discussing about the houses people have and the amount of need that is actually there.
I was reminded of this pic taken at a street in Kolkata in May 2008.
We complain about the living room being too small or the bedroom not having the proper lighting or something or the other. The way we see it, every place has something for us to complain about.
Little do we realize that there are millions if not billions, who have not even heard a lot of those terms we talk about. What is a living room? What drawing Room? Study room? What kitchen?

Some days I just sit and realize that if I had spoken out at all times when I wanted to say somethings, things could have been different.
Many of us do not do so for the fear of being ridiculed, fear of failing, and the fear of the consequences that we would have to face. What the society would say? The society here could be the classmates, neighbors in the colony, or office mates.
So if you do not do it, Whats stopping you? Just Do it!

...today I was having a discussion with a friend. and the point I was making was that when you do what you love, there is immense joy to the soul. And that feeling is not replicable in doing anything else.
I love shooting portraits. After coming to the US, somehow that thing did not happen much and I went around shooting nature. All people shots posted here were from my archive.
This one however was on my last trip to India. Shot in Kolkata at a street side sewing shop.
Even in the hot Kolkata weather, with sweat dripping down, and throat choking with thirst, I could feel my soul beaming with happiness when I shot this.
Wish everyone did what they loved doing.

Yesterday, in my new office, I was grumbling about not getting a permanent office cubicle. I got like a makeshift cubicle.
They said they ran out of free cubicles.
Suddenly I remembered about this picture I had taken in Kolkata this summer, and all my grumblings went down the drain.
I suddenly realized how fortunate I was for where I am and how immaterial all my worries are when I look at things like this.

..i cannot do a day without chai.
..when served in a kulhad, the taste is divine.
Somehow I feel that the true taste of chai is got only at the roadside stalls.
Wonder whether its the smell, the ingredients, or the earthen chulha on which it is made.
There is something wonderful about it and that is not duplicable any where else.
So here's a toast to the chai!
