The Golden Child... by Pavan Kaul

Posted on 2013-03-16

God is merciful...this child probably has no idea that there is a life outside of her poverty ridden existence. No wonder she gifted me such a lovely, sweet smile! Can there be anything more generous? Such honor, such courage! She taught me something I shall always remember.

“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

Top of a hill at Dandeli

Top of a hill at Dandeli by Shuva Brata Deb

Posted on 2013-01-09

We went to Dandeli to do whiter water rafting last November staying at Old Magazine House. Out there there is a 30 minute trek up the hill where you can see 4 rivers merging at the Supa Dam. Beautiful place to spend the evening and see the sun going down.

This picture was taken by keeping the camera almost at the ground, lens wide open without any view finder usage. Imagine taking a blind shot by holding your camera near your ankle.

Mom  &  KId :)

Mom & KId by Devi

Posted on 2019-04-13

I was rushing to the window every now and then to see if the Mom would lift her bum and let me take a shot of her eggs. No chance! !Was I disappointed? Yes.
But surprise of all surprises, I heard faint "cheeps" and I started rushing now to see the lil one. And lo! It came out and I took a few quick shots. Very soon the Mom sensed the human presence near by and ushered the kid under her wings! Aw!! Thank Heaven for small mercies. The zoom did not disappoint me !!

Lord Ganesha is our favorite God in our family. And it is a common faith among many people in India to offer prayer to Ganesha first before starting any new, work, project or business. And ths picture of Ganesha was so appealing to me as a fine art and colours. I chose to post this image on the New Years day with my greetings and wishes.

The long and majestic corridors of Knowledge and Education - Loyola College, Chennai.
It was a thrilling experience to walk along these corridors of my old college after so many years.
I felt I was a young student and still a part of this great Institution as I was going to see one of my old class rooms...

Street side magic

Shipyard Shaman by glenn

Posted on 2013-01-30

In India, shipyards owned by other countries hire men for vey little. For the workers this money is needed. They will endure undesirable conditions and pain to survive. They come from all over Asia and even Muslim regions on the globe.

Here a Shaman begins his spirit work to remove bit of splintered metal from this grimacing man's eye socket.

Victoria Memorial in the fog

Victoria Memorial in the fog by Shuva Brata Deb

Posted on 2013-12-29

I took this picture using a mid-level Samsung Mobile while running around this place early in the morning. I briefly stopped for a few seconds, took this shot and continued running.

I have been thinking of visiting this place with my SLR, but this picture made me think: What is the need to shame an SLR?

Prendre des photos à l'intérieur de ce sanctuaire hautement sacré est rigoureusement interdit!...
Avec reconnaissance, respect et humilité, je remercie le hasard des circonstances et les Dieux de ces lieux, de m'avoir permis de réaliser cette image.

Je la publie en hommage et gratitude à cette attachante population de l'Inde du sud, ainsi qu'à sa riche culture millénaire qui m'ont séduit.

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.
