I love this one. This is Anasagar Lake, and its morning time, where this Boat which otherwise rules the waters of this Lake, is chained to the dock, waiting for its routine to start. I took the pains to wake up early morning hours to go visit this place to get some good clicks, and I can't complain of being disappointed. This historic man-made lake was constructed by Maharaja Anaji (1135-1150 AD), the grandfather of Maharaja Prithviraj Chauhan. And I must add here that its the lifeline of the people living in Ajmer (Rajasthan). There were times, when the lake was flooded with water, but thanks to the irregular rains and climate change, water is one thing this Lake yearns for.


Adjustability: of all these stones to sit together, even though being so brittle and hard in itself. Its a general way of making walls in Rajasthan Villages. I clicked this snap in the Forest Department Office in Bhim, District Rajsamand (Rajasthan) when I was on my way to some other place. I like this style of making the walls, without using anything else but a simple arrangement of stones. that's why I named it adjustability, because if these hard unbendable stones can be put together to form such a beautiful structure, then why can't us humans work together keeping aside our egos? Its just a thought. Think about it!


Clicked in the morning from the frosted glass window near my bed, this snap needs no explanation for its tag. Diffusion is generally a transport of material from a region of higher concentration to one of lower concentration. That is what is happening here, because there is a gradual mixing of the flower petals into the window, as if forming various identifiable pixels of various colour tones. The flower is a Bougainvillea Bonsai kept outside my room. And it always is equally beautiful when I wake up. Feels awesome to be greeted by nature in such a colourful manner.


There are only few things that always stay vibrant. Whatever be the weather, the water always is alive. I love this tendency of water, and its something I love to stare for hours. This is Anasagar Lake in Ajmer (Rajasthan). The white marble Bara-dari on the Anasagar Lake is exquisite. This historic man-made lake was constructed by Maharaja Anaji (1135-1150 AD), the grandfather of Maharaja Prithviraj Chauhan.


The colour Red and Yellow collectively denote Anger, and thats what I've tried to depict here with an extremely contrasting subject. The plant is in my garden, but I don't know what specie it actually is of. Stop laughing at me! It was an easy click, no issues, just a simple zooming and... press the shutter!

This one's dedicated to all my friends, who're nothing less than my complete Support System. If I am something today, I owe it all to them, coz if it were not their perfect advices at the right times, I wouldn't be who I am. It takes a lot of stones to make a building, and its not the stones on top that make it big, but the hidden stones lying in the foundation that decide the height of the building. Its something similar, coz its the hidden support of a friend that makes you YOU. This snap has been clicked on my way to Baijnath, a place ahead of Pushkar, in Ajmer (Raj.). It was the side wall of some dilapidated abode made by someone.

Taken at a railway crossing near Barr (Distt. Pali, Rajasthan), I guess its a standard snap that every photographer has in his album. So, even I was compelled to click this one. Anyways, I chose this title after consuming loads of time. I did not want to give it the standard age-old tags of distance, or journey, or something similar. So, I just concentrated over those two rails, who although being each other's best friends, never meet... Platonic, hunh?

Its an Indian Star Tortoise [Geochelone Elegans], and well, it comes in a package. Its hard bony or chitinous carapace covering the head and thorax has always been a point of curiosity. But well, I think its one of the best packed animals, having a ready home, and aptly protected against any predators. The carapaces are available in various colours, attractive all of them. I love this snap because of the way he's standing in it, like an aristocrat.


Mehrangarh Fort, located in Jodhpur (Rajasthan) is one of the largest forts in India. The fort is situated on a lofty height, and is enclosed by imposing thick walls. Mehrangarh (etymology: 'Mihir' (Sanskrit) -sun or Sun-deity; 'garh' (Sanskrit)-fort; i.e.'Sun-fort'; according to Rajasthani language pronunciation conventions, 'Mihirgarh' has changed to 'Mehrangarh'; the Sun-deity has been the chief deity of the Rathore dynasty.

This place has been my favourite hangout while I stayed in Jodhour for my Law Degree. I still remember how all of us friends used to go there and sit for hours. This snap has been taken from the terrace of Pal Haveli, a very nice restaurant in the Old City of Jodhpur.

Over The Edge

A simple snap, the tag says it all. Have nothing more to add, abstract click actually. I was playing with focus, thought of focusing in the middle, rather than the extreme ends and clicked this.
