A different perspective of the magnificent Lotus Temple. This popular architectural marvel attracts thousands of locals and international tourists on daily basis and gets photographed a lot. But this unique, one of a kind 'Alien Face' perspective, i am sure hasn't been clicked before. Enjoy!
The Banke-Bihari Temple in Vrindavan is one such place to enjoy the festivities as it hosts a week long Holi celebrations here. During these days, Bihariji is dressed up in white coloured clothes and it is brought closer to his devotees to play holi. Vrindavan Holi is played with coloured water and gulal, a form of colour made using organic substances like flowers and kesar. Goswamis sprinkle colors on everyone. The whole atmosphere is made even more lively with music (bhajans) in the background and people dance to the tunes while enjoying the colors.
Durga is a 5 year old orphan girl. Durga's father left home before her birth and mother died when she was 2 months old. She is living with her 75 year's old grandmother and physically challenged maternal uncle who are living under below poverty line. Every day they are struggling to provide food and education to her. Now she is studying UKG with the help of a sponsor. The Inline statement is very difficult for them to give her a good life. Close-up shot of a cute girl with innocence expression, I like the blurred foreground with the crisp eyes in the background and Swing for the unusual angle of the picture.
A morning scene from the banks of river Yamuna, the banks in the local language are called Ghats. The Yamuna is one of the holiest rivers of India and also one of the polluted. Despite of the pollution it is worshiped by millions. Here a man adjusts his clothes after a dip in the river. Interestingly this part of the year many migratory birds visit the place and are generously fed by the locals in hope that they bring good luck.
It was in the early morning at Keoladeo bird sanctury. The sun was rising and this pair of sarus was dancing. Location of the pair and the background arches turned this moment in a beautiful composition.
I was in search of a photograph that can portray certain human desires. As I was roaming in the streets of Soho district, London, I noticed this person frequently looking back at the dummies in a sex shop. It immediately struck me as a suitable shot that can fulfil my requirements.
This photograph clearly depicts how there is always an invisible wall between humans and their desires. It seems that the weather is freezing and the person is trying to fortify himself against the weather while thinking about the comfort and enjoyment he could get through his desires.
This is Chameleon,a reptile.. This is the only species in world which can rotate its eyes 360 degree... As everybody knows it changes colors according to situation.. Now a days human is also becoming like this in his character due to changing situation and changing life...
Poverty is a significant issue in India, despite having one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, clocked at a growth rate of 7.6% in 2015, and a sizable consumer economy. Despite of many problems that people face on day to day bases, its important to learn and remain happy for whatever we got. Being rich and being happy are two different things.
I saw a street art once that read- 'keep your money, I want change', with an illustration of a vagabond. This instantly struck a chord in my head. "Is it really money that makes us rich?", i asked myself. I've been born and brought up in a posh area in South Delhi, India, surrounded but separated from the villages and streets around. I look around myself. I see luxurious homes with all amenities, but zero smiles. I see monotonous routines and hear half - hearted conversations. Then I see bare roads and temporary roofs, but innocence and laughter. It feels like they have nothing but everything; no care and all the time in the world. I am not superficial to believe that they do not face hardships, because who doesn't. But I do believe that they do not settle for lives of robots. Therefore, I demand, not your money, but change. I demand echoes of laughter, a light heart, and a beautiful world that is equally enjoyable for all. I demand an end to this never ending race, which leads to nowhere. I demand more dancing in the rain, because who knows what will happen the next instance. So might as well get drenched and dance, and dance as though its the last time you ever can.
On the Ekadashi before Holi, the Banke Bihari temple at Vridnavan celebtrates a unique Holi which is not celebrated with conventional dry or wet colors, but with flowers, and hence the name Phoolon wali holi (Flowers' Holi). The event is not as popular as the other events, but is quickly getting it's due.The gates of the temple open around 4pm and the Flower's Holi starts right after that. However, unlike other Holi festivities this is a short affair of just about 15-20 minutes during which flowers are thrown at the devotees by the temple priests. If you are not on time, it's very easy to miss it. In case you planning to capture it with your camera, reach early and be at the gate just when it opens.
This photo was clicked in Varanasi, India. This photo signifies the struggle of survival in harsh condition. This man is selling vegetables during a downpour, so that he could fend for his family with a selected vegetables and an broken umbrella at hand.
While coming back from Nubra Valley after a wonderful trip to Ladakh, I saw on my left this beautiful landscape. Its June and Nubra River is flowing silently while our vehicle cruising along the highway towards Diskit Gompa -Khardung La - Leh. I politely asked my Driver to stop the vehicle so that I can take a few shots. It was drizzling a few minutes back. The rainy clouds can still be seen at distance. Wish I could take few more shots!
