It was cold, and the only reason why Jhelum hadn't frozen in Pahalgaon (J&K) was because it was flowing. I had to live with the chilling feeling in my feet for quite some time for this snap... but every pain was worth it.

I'm Dangerous!

hmmm... this one's a beauty! I was scared of this hedgehog initially, but then I realized he was more scared of me; all the while his blue eyes trying to bargain that I must respect his love for privacy. So I did! But after I clicked this one...


I was walking by with my friends on a lonely road with my Nikon in my neck, when suddenly these dried thorns came in our way- Everyone else walked ahead but me, obviously absorbing the beauty in something so commonly found. There were many others, but this typical thorn somehow attracted my attention.

I could have written anything to describe this pic, but why Rajasthan? Well, firstly, am a proud Rajasthani... attached to everything that belongs to my land, and secondly because of the portrayal of Rajasthan to the whole world as a lifeless Desert. Agreed we're a Desert State, still, we know what clouds look like, and Yes! We do have trees and greenary too. I was a kid when someone said- "The moment you name Rajasthan, I can feel sand under my feet". I guess this pic's an apt reply of what Rajasthan is...


Even I did not know when I clicked this snap that it would turn out to be this beautiful. It was a winter morning and the temperatures for the night had been below the freezing point. I took my Nikon and went to find something capturable when I noticed this- a string of water droplets hanging down a cobweb thread, and I knew I had to have it.


Why Virgin? you may ask... When I saw this flower in my Garden one day, I was mesmerized by its beauty. It was so pure; untouched it stood in the morning twilight, hiding a secret within itself, and all I could come up with, was Virgin!

Keep Walking

I took this pic at my home in Rajasthan. It is an adult Lady Beetle [Coccinella septempunctata] walking down a Rudraksh leaf. What I really like about this pic is the consistency with which this insect walks down the edge of the leaf, inconsiderate of the world around her.
