830 Posts: That’s a Wrap, 2018!

When I started this space in 2011, and in effect the post a day challenge, it took me 18 days to get stuff out from my drafts. I ended the year with 350 posts, and given the passage of time, this milestone of 800+ should’ve been crossed years ago. But posting everyday, with a picture…

Something Just Like..

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and…

Ring Out The Old

For last year’s words belong to last year’s languageAnd next year’s words await another voice.And to make an end is to make a beginning. ~T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Vishu Kanni

Vishu Kanni is an important part of Vishu celebrations in all Mallu households. Being part Mallu (the one that comes from my father), Kanni is a part of the lunisolar new year celebration in my house too. Kanni literally means first view and is the first thing you open your eyes to on the auspicious…

Let Us Prosper

As I was born and brought up in Maharashtra, the Marathi harvest festival/new year (according to the lunisolar Hindu calendar) known as Gudi Padva is a celebration I look forward to. Padva in general means festival or celebration and the Gudi is a “flag”  of the Hindu god Brahma (Bhramadhvaj), who is believed to have created time and…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

An old memory, Tinkle surely would’ve been a fond reminder of a happy childhood for many Indian kids my age. And to this day, I love the comic! In fact such was the fanaticism of this publication in my household that my dad diligently collected and preserved hordes of the magazine to bind them into two sets of collectibles….

MJ’s Duplicate

We met this gentleman, when we were ringing in the New Year with a quiet dinner at a restaurant. The talented musician played some soothing country ballads to set the mood right. His sense of humor was awesome too as he referred to himself as a Micheal Jackson lookalike! He was camera-shy though hiding behind his…

Silent Sundays: Shapes

For a full year, it’s been about my shots and my perspectives. So this year, I have decided, that every week, I’d put up a picture that would ask you, my dear visitor, to give me a perspective instead. And what better day to start than the first day of 2012! So feel free to…

350 Posts: And We’re Done For 2011!

The year ends and this is the perfect time of the year to reminisce and thank each and every one of you, who made the year-long journey worthwhile. While I achieved a lot this year, everything seems to get summed up this collage of pictures, and this one beautiful song, dated to 1995. Here is hoping…
