This is my 1500 post.
It has been a wonderful experience for me to be part of AM3 community and to appreciate photos and views from very many great people. This gave us great opportunity to understand different cultures, people and places which we very much appreciate. I thank all our AM3 family members for their kind words, comments, guidance and support given to me all along. I should thank my son Dr Sunder who was keen that I should join Aminus3.

The saga of Iddly...6

The saga of the Iddly 6 by Devi

Posted on 2014-07-19

The owner of the small hotel makes iddlies (a South Indian breakfast dish) in a very traditional manner, using clay pots, cane plates, traditional batter and firewood oven for cooking. They get orders from other big hotels as the dish is very popular around here.

As I was clicking away she was feeling shy to pose and she kept insisting that we have some tea. She talked about how they moved to this village many many years ago and how busy they are now with orders coming in.

Ward off evil

Ward off evil by Devi

Posted on 2014-05-01

Tis woman belongs to the hills, selling tribal herbs.These particular roots are for " warding off evil "..yes..hang it in your home and if there is some negative force floating around, the roots are supposed to shrink and rot and you throw them into the dust bin. She learned all about herbs from her grandfather, she said. I saw villagers coming to her with some health issues and she was directing them to get some special plants and telling them how to use them.
No I did not buy this root;D

The Sapthapadi

The Sapthapadi by Sathya

Posted on 2014-09-18

The title "Sapthapadi" is roughly translated as "7 Steps"

The bride and groom take seven steps around the sacred fire. The groom walks with the bride to the right side of the sacred fire while holding his wife's right hand. He stops, bends down and holds the right toe of his wife with his right hand and helps her take seven steps around the fire.

This image was clicked when the Groom was helping the Bride to take the first step out of the seven steps.

Diwali Lights

Diwali Lights by Mohit Arora

Posted on 2014-10-24

Diwali, also known as the Hindu Festival of Lights, is celebrated with fervour in India (especially in North India). People light up their houses with oil lamps, candles and various forms of electric lights.

Seen in this picture is one such wounded up electric light hanging from my parents' house this Diwali. The bokeh in the backdrop is other such lights of different colours.

Candle light protest against child abuse 7/10

Candle light protest against child abuse 7/10 by Shuva Brata Deb

Posted on 2014-08-05

Last month Bangalore was shaken by brutal rape of a 6-year old at school. Worst, the it was a girl with special needs. Even worse, the parents knew about it after several days as the girl's complain about her stomach pain made her mom take to doc after few days.

Teachers are like second parents and school is a child's second home. In this incident we saw the school compromising morals and ethics.

Bangalore rose to the occasion. People participating in candle light march seeking justice.
