Street capture of a wandering hindu sadhu in Trichy Tamil Nadu India.....he looked quite out of place in a modern city like Trichy but yet he was comfortable with himself as a way of life.....a life of simplicity (minimal worldly possession), vegetarian diet, prayers & a hope for a better cycle of life after death (reincarnation).
the mountains make you forget everything...

The Calm sunrise after a historic super cyclone Vardah devastated Chennai City reminds me that silence after storm is also a beautiful.
I made this image of 5% crescent 45 min before sunrise. My eyes were not able to see the pink color of clouds but camera did.
The vast variety of colors of the flowers all over the world is just unimaginable
I clicked the photo of this rose which was given with love to me by my love and thought of capturing it so that whenever I look at the whorls, it would tell me how deeply he loves me...
Another set of life at the Ghats of the Ganges, Varanasi -- The ear hair removal scheme
A scene captured in the shops selling saris in the holy city of Varanasi India.....the bull is considered sacred by the hindus & this bull never fails to visit this particular shop for half an hour or so every day for the last 2 years!
The management of the shop felt it was good omen & it became a local feature where shoppers will touch the bull for blessings.
In this frame, the crane appears to help the iron bar's to get up. It signifies that when possible, we should help others, even when we think the other person might not be able to help back.
A fly resting on barbed wire, against the sun, and chaos of construction all around in the my city - Gurgaon. Telling me that its not necessary to get affected by the chaos all around. Shouting loud that its time to take rest. And lastly, that how small one might be, he can make his mark.
It was a memorable moment on this Pongal day. Me and my wife Varthini were preparing to celebrate Pongal this year. It so happened children went to different places with their familes to celebrate Pongalthis year. First time we felt so lonely inspite of having lived a busy life all these years. It is a great learning to know lead a simple yet graceful life full of love and peace. I loved the divine atmosphere in our Puja room arranged by Varthini in her own style. I captured that very moment her

This awestruck color blend made it inevitable for me to not click a glimpse and share with all....
Hikkim village in Himachal, India holds the record of hosting the world's highest post office. This place remains cut off from other regions for half the year due to heavy snow fall over the passes. Its an extreme place to live with population around 200 people only. This place also happens to hold the record for the world's highest polling station.

These little children dress up as mythological characters and go begging from the people they meet. I found him on a train during my recent India visit.
In Gurgaon,India, construction of new urban area's is always happening - be it commercial or residential. On one such morning, it so happened that these two trucks were facing each other, and there was this tree standing on the road divider. I immediately saw this opportunity to show ill-effects of uncontrolled construction where this lone tree appears to warn us, that if we don't care for the environment now, nature will try and fight back.

I live in Gurgaon, - been here for almost 8 years now. And NEVER tried street photography here. But this time it was different. Took out my camera and tripod, and BAM, was at CyberCity - The IT hub of Gurgaon.
This photo is one of my favourite shots and was taken on 02.09.2017 at Lambert Nagar, Chennai. I liked the light and angle chosen for this frame.
After performing the annual ceremony I was thinking of my father and I chose to take a few photos just outside. This is in memory of my father. And our children also liked this one.
Life is so full of happenings, that we hardly notice as worthy. Here is my attempt to share those moments.

This is my home Ganpati...at His glory...
I shoot this image at famous kaas plateau near my home town Satara Maharashtra India.
There is a beautiful hill station called Kodaikanal in TamilNadu, India. I have been there 9-10 times however to the buzzling side of the same. But once, thought of exploring beyond the commercial side of the hill station. This picture was shot in a tribal village in one of the remotest corners of TamilNadu and I would say the people and the place itself is a hidden jewel. Not many people know that tribal villages like these exist in the Indian map. Was a satisfying photo shoot.
