FROM THE WINDOW OF A TRAIN

The photographs are not perfect as the window glass was not clean and also because of the movement and the speed of the train.

JOY OF ACHIEVEMENT

It may not be a great achievement but when I harvested  onions grown from discarded onion bottoms in a flower pot, it was a moment of jubilation. The summer has been very hot and water supply limited.IMG_20160504_064327

Another photograph which is a special memory where my nephew is standing with his cousins ( my daughter and my sister- in- law’s nieces) are jubilantly holding the toy cars gifted to him on his ‘Mundan.’

All Hindu children have their head completely shaved to remove the hair they are born with.It is very happy occasion and celebrated with friends and family.IMG_20150803_093425

 

DONATE ORGANS – YOU CAN SPARE THESE

Spare a thought for all those people who make life easy for us – the newspaper boy, the men in uniform, the milkman…….

Indian hospitality is legendary for its warmth- feeding the guests but there is so much wastage of food. Spare a thought for the farmers’ hard work and all those who cannot afford a meal a day.

Spare a thought for the birds and save trees and leave some fruit on the trees for them. After all they help in seed dispersal, eat harmful insects…..

VIEWER’s INTERPRETATION

Photographs clicked from a moving vehicle, photographs of moving objects, photographs taken during storms, rain or very strong sunshine sometimes create very interesting abstracts. Out of focus pics or inadvertent movement of the camera are a photographer’s shame but a boon for artists. Photographing reflective and shiny objects add another dimension to the image.

KABHI KHUSHI KABHI GAM – STATE of MIND

These photographs were clicked in the old part of the city of Ludhiana where I spent my childhood days. The temple where I went with my mother and brothers, shops where we shopped and despite the haphazard traffic and the din, I relived my childhood.

Beautiful sunset, sunrise, rain, rainbow, birds, flowers always make me happy

The death of the Hibiscus tree, whose bright flowers never failed to cheer me and a subject of many of my drawings. It was the vantage point for the Purple Sunbird pair that had made their nest on the opposite wall,

ALBERT EINSTEIN SAID”TIME IS RELATIVE”- PACE ODDITY

When you are happy, interested and having fun, time flies and when you are in trouble, waiting for your results or for your turn to perform or bored, the time stops!!!!

Did the watched pot ever boil?

 

Samay tu dheere dheere chal

sari duniya chhod ke mein to pichche

aage jaun nikal

pal pal…….

(O Time! move very slowly

I want to overtake this world)
