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.”

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.
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.
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...
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.
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.

Borasses flabelliser or Ice apple in English . Come hot summer, you will find them seated on the roadsides, selling palm fruits. Much in demand as it quenches thirst and cools the system. Here we have a mother and daughter...yes the head of the family has gone to pluck more from the trees, which border either side of the National Highway and are found growing in villages too.
Street capture of a nihang sikh, easily recognizable by the striking colour garments, extended head turbans & long unshaven hair & beards. The nihang sikhs or akalis (literally mean immortals) are warriors carrying swords & spears & are guardians of the sikh religion & places of worship.
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.
