Reverie


I was unconscious when I took this picture. I was sitting in front of the University gate lost in some wild reveries. The picture turned out to be good and now I'm trying to find out symbolic meanings behind it..

More Soda Please


This is another one of those old pictures from last year. It was taken at an authentic Chinese restaurant, 'Wok with Chung' in Bangalore. I had made the order and was contemplating over this glass of soda. If you look closely you can actually see the head of the dragon from the roof . (top left corner of the picture)

Lean On Me (A Mother's Love)

     This morning I was listening to ‘Lean On Me’ by Bill Withers while walking around the city discovering new places, and I got lost. I was so absorbed in the song that when I came to my senses I was standing in a street that I have never been before, somewhere away from the main street. Just in front of me was a local park with some benches here and there. There was nothing extraordinary with that park except that in the morning sunlight it looked really beautiful. So, I decided to go there and sit for sometime. I saw a few kids playing cricket with no shoes, everything else was silent.
     Ten minutes later one of the kid tripped and broke his nose, I was about to go and help him out when all out of a sudden this woman (I believe it was his mother) came rushing to the scene with an expression of such rage and worry  in the same face. Moments later she was hugging her child as if she had lost and found him again.
     This incident opened new doors for me. To see first hand an incident like that made me think of the love a mother has for her children from a whole new perspective. Everyone knows that a mother loves her child but how many children love their mothers back?
     On my way back I took out my phone and called my mother…..

Bonsai? Not So Sure..


This picture was taken some time ago, back in 2009 in Bangalore. It's a small bamboo plant placed on the reception table at a local dry-cleaning store where I use to frequent. If I remember right the guy even had a name for this little buddy.

Sleeping Beauty


"Why is it, that a dog, you know, sleeping in the sun, is so beautiful, you know, it is, it's beautiful, you know, but a guy, standing at a bank machine, trying to take some money out, looks like a complete moron?"
