Wandering sadhu in Trichy by sawsengee

Posted on 2017-04-25

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).

Holy cow.......there is a bull in the shop! by sawsengee

Posted on 2016-05-06

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.

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

Last one standing to save the environment

Last one standing to save the environment by Chetan

Posted on 2018-03-11

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.

Tribes of Poombarai..

Look that lingers..Tribes of Poombarai.. by Sathya

Posted on 2016-04-14

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.
