Sunset at Dalhousie

When you wait with your camera…

I never get bored of shooting sunsets, every evening unfolds hundred of options, to me it is like photography opportunities flying all around you and there is no way you can grab all.

Firewood

Firewood – A day between cooking & collecting wood for cooking

 

No one would buy these flowers and she has no need for them. What she needs is wood to fire her kitchen. I saw here walking alone, load was surely heavy but her stride was steady.

Location: 500 meters stone – Kala Top,  Dalhousie-Khajjiar Road,   Himachal Pradesh, India

Crocodile Cloud

Oo – it is a crocodile

When you observe sunsets, sunsets reward you, they make you feel on top of the world, they show you their games. Watching the games clouds play has been my hobby, every sunset from a vantage point has a story to tell. I had all the time and I saw acts around lot of stories, this is life, this fun.

Langoor and Me

This Langoor gave me good looks

This is my world, who are you? This langoor gave me looks which were clearly saying, I am not amused to see you around, could you mind your business? Langoors are not likely to be courteous so his body language was not communicating “please” to me at all.

And here are a few lines in Hindi and translation by my friend Meenakshi Ahuja…


#Hindi

Aaj sadak pe ek langoor nain mujhe dekhaa
Main sadak par tha, woh dayan ek per par
Main chalta raha woh pichhe rah gaya
Usne ek udaan li
Shallang nahin keh sakte usko
Weh ek udaan thi
Woh seedha mere saamne ke per tha
Main sadak par tha, woh dayan ek per par
Main chalta raha woh pichhe rah gaya.

Kuch he shanon baad mere dayan kuch harkat hui
Main ruk gaya
Woh aagay chala gaya
Woh aagay chal raha tha
Main uske piche tha.
Dar to peeche he rehta hai naan
Maine khud se kaha.

Maine apne kadam tez kar diye
Usne ek udaan li
Main sadak par tha, woh dayan ek per par
Main chalta raha woh pichhe rah gaya

Translation by Meenakshi Ahuja

Today on the road I took
One langoor gave me a look
Me on the road
He on the right
I just walked
As he took flight
Can’t call it a jump
Definitely a flight
He came ahead of me
With all his might.
I was on the road
He, on the right.
I moved on
He was left behind.
In a few moments,
A stir
I stopped
He moved on
I followed
Behind him,
And following me
My fear.
But then,
I braced myself
The langoor took flight
I moved on
Left behind was my fright.

Cheers!

 

 

His Acts – Games Clouds Play June 22, 2014

Clouds in the sky

Clouds have a way of living life

 

Clouds have a way of talking to our world, it all depends whether we have the time and an eye to hear what they are talking. A few days back clouds played games over Bakrota sky, I could see a dragon and an aircraft. Friends said that it was a bird and a dolphin swimming. You take your pick on what do you think it is and do let me know what it is for you.

Cheers!

I am a crow they are eagles – I am firmly perched and they are not. Life is not about what you are born as but it is all about how you choose to live it. This crow is a smart crow who may not be able to soar very high or manage delicious prey but knows how to have fun all the time.

It is your life choose to live the way you want. Are you firmly perched? Ask your self and absorb the honest answer.
