MahaKumbh: World’s Largest Gathering of Devotees

We are at Nasik, Maharashtra on the occasion of MahaKumbh which comes after every 12 years, is supposed to be the most grandest and largest religious activity of the Hindu devotees. Lakhs of them have gathered in ” Ram Kund”  to take a holy dip in Godavari river. It is said that doing that would wash away all the sins and one would get Moksha or freedom from the cycle of death and life. Enjoy the Mountaintops and Valleys“>pics.

Indian Man with 14 inch Tail: Reincarnation of a Monkey God ?

If I had a chance to be reborn then I would like to be a free bird 

Or I would come back as a fashion diva or a page 3 star

President of a country or…….. its just that I have never thought about it.

Let me share you a strange thing happened in one of the corners of India.

An Indian is being worshipped as a reincarnation of monkey God, Hanuman 

Does he resembles a monkey? No, actually he has grown his hairy tail.article-2553786-1B4365B400000578-780_634x567

“A man with a 14.5-inch hairy tail growing from his back has been hailed as a god by villagers in India.
Chandre Oraon, 35, was born with a patch of hair on his lower back and has refused to have it cut, leading to locals believing that he is reincarnation of Hindu monkey deity Hanuman.”

His followers see his ability to climb trees as proof that he is Hanuman, and believe he has healing powers.article-2553786-0E8659CD00000578-683_634x473

No Phobia Shmobia: Hear the Sound

If I had to live forever I would be a child, like both of them….

Listening to the sound of waves, banging into hem

Carefree, innocent, funny, would love to dream all day along

Lying on rocks, swimming in water and singing a song….

Observing the world, sense of hearing would be strong,

A pure heart with twinkling eyes , childhood is golden age

Poets have expressed so beautifully this first stage

How much scared I was to grow old

Now I have past that stage, became bold

IMAG1846

I want to be what I’m, comfortable in my skin

Wisdom gained, experienced hands, kith and kin

Handle work and home together, remain in spin

A wife, a mother who finds happiness around her sons

He plays the drum and I enjoy the beats, love the music sessions

He has conquered his fear of forgetting beats during performance

No phobia, he goes and give it all he has, in the audiance

WPC: Monochromatic II

Minimalist, monochromatic photos require a thoughtful eye in order to ensure that they are truly interesting, rather than mundane. Use of creative composition and angles, and a tight zoom on your subject can help produce a compelling image.

Innocence of a child, sweetness of a pie

Living life happily, contented, regret not die

I want to live, experience the truth, worth a try

Beautiful world, clouds, mist, rainbow and sky

Deep oceans, virgin woods, nature near by 

Knowledge makes me spirited soul, not a sly

I am moon myself, glowing silver light in the sky

I live in a moment” live it well

engrossed, committed, pride to swell

I become what is to be expected

living this very moment, not regretted

Time to move, I become ” Movers and Packers “

Living out of boxes, posted to exotic places

Hey ! I become traveller during vacations

A explorer reaching out to untouched locations

I am a photographer giving it a try

I am moon myself, glowing silver light in the sky

As soon as I enter the campus, an updated educator

a friend,guide, philospher to young custodians forever

I become a wife to greet my man in the evening

flashing million dollar smile ,fresh and glowing

Living this very moment totally enchanted

I feel like a writer, read, laugh and cry

A spirited soul, the moon myself,

glowing silver light in the skyVIDEO0087_0000001708

The Fun Platform for Golden Oldies

childhood, youth and old
childhood, youth and old

If I was the leader of the country, transforming fun into annoyance

I would change the plight of old people who seek no rejoice

Abandoned by children, lonely and depressed, left with no choice

I would bring fun into their lives by bringing the much needed solace

Lots of laughter, company of grand children, no anger or irritation

Older lot would be the happiest ones with full supply of protection

Dedication to make a fun filled world for oldies would be my endeavor 

Golden oldies deserve the love and respect from each family member

As the leader of the country I would create the awareness for a noble cause

They won’t be taking shelters in old age homes as they would be their own boss

Nature in Monochromatic Mood

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE

This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range.

A powerful monochromatic image is composed of a gradient of a single color, and has an emphasis on texture and composition. I have tried to focus on a single object, the images are not entirely monochromatic, they show the power that a simple color palette can have in a photograph.

 These photos show nature in black and white and I haven’t processed or used any effects while capturing the shots. Enjoy the snow-covered peaks, full moon, autumn trees, sea shores and lakes in naturally monochrome.
