Everyday Scene

This gorgeous mosque caught my eye when I first landed in Bangalore. I’ve been always slightly apprehensive to click the place in it’s entire glory. This has probably been my best click of the lot, from a car stuck in traffic. A perfect shot for the holy month of Ramadan , some day I will…

Niagara Falls, India!

I have been visiting several spots around Bangalore with my mother. This place I discovered, thanks to a friend. Then I looked up more information about this weekend spot that I wanted to visit.

Skies Are Calling

Rainbows seems more like magic than science. What else could explain the skies on the right turning into the scene on the left? To repeat the words of artist Gilbert Baker: We needed something to express our joy, our beauty, our power. And the rainbow did that. The rainbow is a part of nature, and…
