Fluffy Clouds…

Do you ever wonder what clouds taste like?

In the sea of concrete, some mornings are just beautiful… all you have to do is just look up at the sky!


A hundred flowers…

_mg_7243t_lr“I will be the gladdest thing under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay



All she wanted was to find a place to stretch her bones.
A place to lengthen her smiles and spread her hair.
A place where her legs could walk without cutting and bruising.
A place unchained.
She was born out of ocean breath.
I remind her;
‘Stop pouring so much of yourself into the hearts that have no room for themselves.
Do not thin yourself.
Be Vast.
You do not bring the ocean to a river.’
~ Tapiwa Mugabe


I live there…


―“I live there…
Far above the song-filled clouds,
where the dewdrops touch my skin so bare
I live there.”
― Sanober Khan, A touch, a tear, a tempest



Pighle neelam sa behta hua yeh samaan, neeli neeli si khamoshiyan, na kahin hai zameen na kahin aasmaan … sarsaraati huyi tehniyan pattiyan, keh rahi hai ki bas ek tum ho yahan … sirf main hoon meri saansein hai aur meri dhadkane, aisi gehraiyan, aisi tanhaiyan, aur main sirf main … apne hone pe mujhko yakeen aa gaya ~ Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

*This moment flows like a molten sapphire with deep blue silence, neither there is the earth nor the sky … the rustling branches and leaves, are saying that only you are here … only me, my breathe and my heartbeat, the deepness, the loneliness, and me and only me … all makes me believe in my existence*

Those Special Moments…


As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs. ~Sam Abell

The Sun will rise!


And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring? ~ Cast Away


Rain Rain, come again

It hasn’t rained yet. To borrow a few sentences from my friends email –

Pune is thirsty. Dark clouds tease the city but never offer more than light showers of rain!

It is supposed to be pouring in July and what we have seen is hardly a couple of short duration showers. If we don’t get rain in the next couple of weeks, our government will likely declare drought (it’s said).

We went to Sinhagad (a fort near Pune) this Sunday. It is a 50 mins climb (for fit people) so of course I took an hr and a half to complete. There was tremendous amount of crowd. Old and young and all climbing faster than me.. 😦

Yes, I am exaggerating! For the first time this monsoon, I was fully wet. It did pour on the fort, but again for a very very short time. After reaching the top we had the famous Kanda Bhaji and Pithala Bhakri (a very Maharashtrian food and specially fun to eat Kanda Bhaji during monsoons)

Here are some clicks from the fort
