Love vs Bullets

Was playing around with a toy gun this evening, which I bought long ago. 
I know, many of us hate noise and air pollution during ‪#‎Diwali‬, but there's little we can do. 
In #India, every year; there's a lot of blah-blah-blah on crackers, but who cares. 
Nonetheless, all I could imagine & create is, only this...



Come, let us all shoot Love‬ for World Peace.

On Idols & Gods...

It was last year, I was returning home after dropping my daughter at her school, and I was passing through an area, where local artists make 'Ganesha' idols. These artists have been making idols for a long time, and city of Ahmedabad happens to be the largest supplier of idols.

Demand for idols of Ganesha & Devi Amba and Durga Maa; increase during Ganesh Chaturthi and Navratri or Durga Puja. However, unsold or unused idols lay in open & dirty spaces for the entire year.

I captured one such idol, which was lying totally unattended, and only after an year, I could write this micro poem.    

...and then
like used and abused humans
your idols too
shall be deprived
of
affection 
love and
praise.

Universe and beyond...

It was holiday today; so, I thought of exploring my painting skill on my designing software, and the first thing that struck me to draw was our Universe. It really is beautiful. I've tried to put it right. Pardon me, if it is different than what you think. Thank you. 
Happy weekend to you.

The Watchful Lens

Its been days; sorry, months I shared any captures. 

Life - at its own speed; takes time and toll of us humans. Isn't it? Smiling out loud.

Not that I wasn't clicking pictures, I was; it is only that, I was lazy, busy, tad busy, and easily tired with many battles to win. Again smiling out loud.  

On #WorldPhotographyDay I wish to share a photo of flooring at my home, which I captured couple of weeks ago; while moving in a circular motion, and later filtered to make it appear as a camera lens. 

Sorry, the picture is saved on another computer. Here is a link to the picture.

Hope, you enjoy. I invite you friends to add your comments. 

Long Live Photography! Add Voice! Let Them Speak!

The Almond Tree

Picture in the background of the poetry above is of an almond tree, which my friend (who used to live on streets) and I planted almost 30 years ago. I am happy that my friend rose from streets to become a assistant police inspector this day. Although, he meets me seldom, but keeps messaging "Do let me know, if you have any sort of trouble." ha ha!


There are numerous inspiring people around us, whose lives go unnoticed. To make them noticed and feel honored; all we need to do is identify their skills and bring them on paper. I have tried my bit. I sincerely hope, you will like the picture and poem as well.
