Hmmm... I'm attached with this pic a lot, and the reason why its tagged as Journey is not because of the straight road merely, but because I clicked this snap during one of my life's best journeys. Anyways, for particulars, the road is N.H-15, and the stretch is from Bikaner to Hanumangarh in Rajasthan.

I was on my way to Pushkar, and the way is so full of monkeys all over. I stopped at a point to click this guy- He was staring at something, so keenly, unperturbed by the fact that I was so near by, as if he was analyzing something and calculating his probabilities. To tell you the truth, I'm so scared of monkeys that I didn't intend going too near him, so I just took my car absolutely close to him, zero distance, and then pulled down the window, took my Nikon in one hand, and my other hand on the power window button to pull up the glass in case of any emergency (so immensely foreseeable).

Anyways, for all the animal rights activists, let me assure that everything was done in peace with no monkey being harmed, whatsoever.


A Palm Tree, standing in the middle of nowhere, with leaves so well connected to the bark, screening the excess heat off the ground. What attracted me to click this snap was the well connected network of leaves... It looked Awesome!!


Another tree cut to feed the hungry humans? Well, call it an abstract description of a man murdered for others' needs. I'm connected to nature, so any such incident of deforestation really does hurt me.

Pink....!!! Do I need say more?

Its Bougainvillia flowers. The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colors associated with the plant, pink in this case. This plant is visible everywhere in Rajasthan and I love it, especially because of its colourful ornamental appearance. It somehow resembles Rajasthan- Thorny, yet so colourfully beautiful.

The Weeping Synchrony

Its a chance click!!! I was aiming for the pigeons generally, and clicked this one, not knowing that the synchronized movement of their wings would be captured so beautifully. I got excited when I saw the pic... The perfect synchronization, denoting the most imperfect expression- Sadness!

Well, the tag has not been kept by me, but by my sis who suggested me this title, and it was so apt that I could not resist keeping it.


Look at the snap! What comes to your mind? Stairs going up, or coming down? Well, that is it... Your attitude! Earlier I thought of keeping it Past, Present & Future, but then thought more like this tag. What do you think?

The place is Old Pushkar, recently reconstructed Ghats, taken from a distance to get the full view.

Where Next?

Where Next? With the amount of growth in population, sustenance is an issue. Its an abstract to denote what I Want to convey.

This snap has been clicked from Mehrangarh, the magnificent Fort of Jodhpur, sprawled across 1125 metres high Pachetiya Hill. From the top, it can be noticed that majority of the houses in the old city area are painted in blue. These blue houses belong to the Hindu Brahmin Caste of Jodhpur. The blue houses are an outcome of the extent of caste led beliefs that dominate the Indian psyche. Brahmins housed themselves in these blue homes to differentiate themselves from the members of other casts and belief systems in the past- A tradition that, despite the slow weakening of the caste system, has remained.

P.S- Do not make up your mind about Jodhpur from this snap. The city is not so conjusted as it seems here.


Pushkar- a small town in Ajmer (Rajasthan). Pushkar means born due to a flower. In Hindu mythology it is said that the Gods released a swan with a lotus in its beak and let it fall on earth where Brahma would perform a grand yagna. The place where the lotus fell was called Pushkar. It is one of the five sacred dhams, and has in recent years become a popular destination for foreign tourists. Pushkar lies on the shore of Pushkar Lake, and well, it is a beautiful site.

This pic has been clicked from Sunset Point (those who've been to Pushkar definitely know this place, and for those who haven't been to, you're missing something!). Pushkar Lake is surrounded by 52 bathing ghats, I donno how many could I capture here. I really had to zoom out the lens to 18 mm before I could click this wide angled pic. The place has its own aesthetic sense which really attracts everyone. Visit it for once at least!!
