Resting on barbed wire by Chetan

Posted on 2018-03-08

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.

Turbulent times

Turbulent times by Chetan

Posted on 2018-11-08

Belief gives us strength. It has the power to allow us to stand and win against something that our mind would otherwise surrender to.
Yet, sometimes there is a choice that we need to make, between beliefs and facts. And polluting our rivers is one such belief, in fact the most pressing one, that we should stand against

Lets do something

Lets do something by Chetan

Posted on 2018-07-28

This reminded me of a conversation from the amazing movie Nebraska.
He - What is it that you want?
She - Let's get married, or lets split up. But lets do something !!

Its important - doing something. Like talking, just share the concerns, the doubts, the conflicts, and rest assured it will end the problem. But what do we mostly do ? We start avoiding any conversation, go back to our cocoon and suddenly all the negative thoughts surround us, making the situation all the more worst. How woul

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.

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).

Human creation

Human creation by Chetan

Posted on 2018-10-17

Our hands can make the most beautiful creation, but can it match one having life? Life and soul that only nature can give. On one hand we worship god, and on the other hand we are killing the very gifts god has given us - animals, trees, air, water.

I am no more my reflection

I am no more my reflection by Chetan

Posted on 2018-05-08

The mirror shows the real you. The real you that is compassionate, helping, not judging, loving , caring and all other human qualities. But at times, out of obligation, out of expectations we try and become what we are not, and its then that the mirror becomes a necessity to see the real you.
Change yourself - Be the real you.

What do you see when you look at yourself in the mirror? (Captured near Yamuna Ghat, Delhi, India)
