What Next?

I met this Guy Yesterday, he sells balloon at Statue Circle, Jaipur. I was there with a friend to click some light trails, we both positioned our camera and doing some clicking. This Guy was standing near us only and he got curious about what kind of photography are we doing. So he started with some chit chat, then saw what we were clicking and then after sometime started telling us his story. 

He is a Poor Guy with a wife and two kids in village, he earns by selling balloons. He don’t know any other work cause from the childhood only he use to do farming with his father. Now just farming is not enough to feed his family cause that land is too small and most of the times because of drastic weather changes (We Call it Global Warming) crops get destroyed. So now his wife does little bit of framing in village and he sells Balloon here.

He recently came to know that Officers of Jaipur Development Authority are making some rules because of which no one will be allowed to sell balloons on Statue Circle anymore. So the Question for him which he was asking to me is What Next? (साहब आप ही बताओ गुब्बारे भी नहीं बेच पाउँगा तो अब आगे क्या करूँगा ?)

And in between all these things I took this Shot.

Red Of Rajasthan

Red is considered to be one of the most auspicious color in Hindu mythology. Traditionally Red color is obtained from the root of plant Manjit, it is identical with the blood or force of human life. Color red denotes well being, joy, fertility, prosperity and sensuousness. Color red has a very deep meaning in Indian psyche; it is a sign of woman’s marital status, in wedding women is decked up in brilliant hues of red and have red sindoor (vermillion) on forehead color red also denotes erotic connotation. Color white represent purity and simplicity and worn extensively by males in Indian subcontinent.

Incredible India

A small rain at most of the places in India is capable of making lot of puddles. Instead of Cribbing most of us Indians see all this creatively, for me this is a great opportunity for reflection photography.

Saffron Kesariya


Color Saffron (Kesariya) and other shades of yellow are regarded as auspicious colors. Color saffron is obtained from the precious saffron (kesar) leaves and in earlier times was regarded as a classy and rare color. With the Urbanization and easy availability of polyester printed clothes which are cheap and affordable, people are forgetting about the traditional colors and what they symbolize for. But still in rural areas of India you will find many people using these traditional colors in their day to day life.
I took this shot in a village of Rajasthan. This location was in front of the temple where these two old women’s in their traditional attire were purchasing vegetables from a much younger lady draped in a polyester printed sari. In this image we can clearly see that how plastic and polyester has made its space in villages of India also.

Is a Penny enough?

And at the end of the day of hard labor all he found was a penny in pocket, as the contractor had refused to pay up on that day.
