#2014 @Alleppey, Kerala, India
Kerala is one place where I saw the festivals are celebrated amidst all colors. This photo was clicked during my first to Alleppey, a beautiful town in Kerala. I was not sure for which celebration the decorated ones were being carried to. Every time I look at this picture I recollect the way these colors made their impression in my mind!
#2016 @Lonavla, Maharashtra
Photography is about the timing too! The click shown here made me experience this fact. I was casually clicking the landscape around me at Lonavla on a Sunday morning in the month of January. A horse was passing by and I realized that it will cross the bike parked on the road side. And then I aimed at that crossing-moment. And that got resulted into the above click, which is one of my favorite clicks of this year.

#2015 @Western Ghats, Mahabaleshwar, Maharashtra, India
Western ghats look breathtakingly beautiful at Mahabaleshwar, the hill station known for its unpredictable yet awesome weather. These photos were taken on an evening after it rained for about an hour in the mid of May, the peak summer month. Had it been a clear sky, probably a few other mountain lines could have got captured. Nonetheless, amidst the misty clouds, the beauty of the ghats has got enhanced I believe! Its a must visit place!
Everyone of us feels that we are special; while there is nothing wrong in feeling special about oneself, its important to remember that everyone we deal with also feels special about himself or herself. Giving everyone the due respect in all aspects makes the dealing an easy going affair.

Water, coconut trees, setting sun and river bank is one of the perfect combinations for photography. An evening spent clicking the sunset with the above combination was one of the best of its kind. Blissful experiences such as this one changes the way we look at a few of the otherwise regular things of our lives. Memories of such are for lifetime.
If only few people can like this movie's script, I'm glad that I'm one of them! Amidst the modern day movies of all types, a movie like this one is important to get released once in a while. To narrate the adorable human relationships. To demonstrate the belief of movie makers. To let the viewers think of their ancestral generations, who probably had only the survival instinct and less egos and less money and less hatred.
Rich production values are the boon to this movie along with Micky J Mayer's that fabulous title bit in the second half.
'Monotonous' is the right word for Mahesh Babu and Samantha's dialogue delivery and expressions. Looks do not work every time. A lot could have been done in a better way but Congratulations to Srikanth Addala for this thoughtful attempt.

It's been long since I cried while watching a reality show in TV. For a first time in all these years I watched "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" on Zee tv for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. More than Aishwarya, the singer in orange jerkin in the pictures shown here won my heart. He is blind by birth, but a fantastic singer by practice. He said on stage after his performance that he never had regretted for not having eye sight but from that stage, he would like to request god for eye sight for ten seconds, so that he could see the beautiful lady in the world, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Inner beauty is beauty but external beauty cannot be ignored too!
The moment he said that was the moment I melted within. Not sure of the reason, but probably it got to me that even though differently-abled people cannot do certain things normally, but they do a few things differently, beautifully and perfectly.

Summer is never the same for every one. And for the trees on this hill top at Bheemashankar forest, it seems, summer means nothing! In the forties of temperature, the trees in this forest have remained clear green! While entering the forest by car, it felt as if a cave, a green cave, was being entered. A great experience it was! A must to visit place it it, be it in rainy season or summer.

#2014 In the air between Pune and Bangalore, India
Photography from airplane is fun. It gives amazing experience and also ensures the time gets passed without thinking of the probable 'going down', for the fact that we are in the air up above the sky! When I got the window seat and next to the airplane's wing, I was not happy to begin with; because I thought it would appear in every photo I click. But when I clicked the above picture, it was the moment that made me wish for the same seat again and again! Realizations keep happening in life, does not matter where you are!
#2016 @Home Garden at Pune, Maharashtra, India
Freshness is the feeling we often want, to get relaxed and refreshed. Fresh vegetables make it most lovingly into the Indian kitchen. And if the fresh vegetables are from our home garden, then the freshness doubles every time not just we pluck them but also when we touch them even for few seconds. One such fresh feeling was felt from within when I touched the coriander plants in our garden on one fine Sunday morning. Awesome that experience will remain to be forever in my thoughts.

Playing a game the way it is not supposed to be played is cheating. Playing a game the way it has to be played is not cheating. Playing any games is tricky. And cheating is a bit more tricky!! Do not cheat; play the game the way it has to be played.

Sunsets are always beautiful; sometimes we observe and sometimes we do not. And those few times we observe them with involvement, they make some of the best impressions for life. A few of such moments for me have come from the photo shoot I have done on an evening at the sunset's time. The picture posted here is one such moment for me which makes me smile every time I look at it and along with smiles it also brings a few of good memories!
