Amber Fort by Night, Jaipur.

Amber Fort in Jaipur is now open for tourists at night also, it’s trimming are from 7pm to 10pm. This step is taken by the Department of Art and Culture as the planning to promote Night tourism in Jaipur The Pink City. The planning is to open more monuments in Jaipur for night Tourism. These types of initiatives are surely going to help Tourism in Rajasthan.
Now comes the hard part for me to tell the ground level reality as per date.

What’s the Difference?

Yesterday was Sunday and we had a photowalk. Few of us photographers assembled at a point then we all headed to do some street Photography. We all were clicking and moving ahead. Then suddenly I took this shot and thousands of Questions filled my mind?

The Main Question was what exactly is the difference between these waste pickers and we “The” Photographers?

I took this Shot near the Badi Chopar, Jaipur.

Last Puff. . .

“His lips crashed against hers. If there had been air in her lungs, she wouldn't have known what to do with it. He kissed her fiercely, making her head spin wilder than a whirlpool, knocking every last puff of breath from her body.” 
Quotation by ― Ophelia London, Love Bites

All this happened at Indian Coffee House of Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur. and I took this Shot. . . :)

Hamara Bajaj. . .

 Hamara Bajaj. . .
Once upon a time when I was a kid, we just had one TV and one channel Doordarshan. There were few ads on TV but those ads had a big impact on the young minds, like still I think that Colgate is best, I Love you Rasna, Lijat Papad are the best, Swad Bhare Shakti Bhare Parle-G, Vicks ki Goli lo Khich Khic Dur Karo, Surf ki Kharidari main hi samajhdaari hai and so on. . . . 

One of the Ad of that time was “Buland Bharat ki Buland Tasveer, Hamara Bajaj. . .”  This ad also had a big impact on my mind. I use to think that just like a new and shining Bajaj scooter India is also very prosperous and strong. That time people really use to take care of their scooter with daily wash, proper cleaning, timely service . . . they use to have pride on their Bajaj. I use to think that people take care of India also in the same way. So whenever I use to see Bajaj Scooter I use to sing that slogan and it was a symbol for me of Shining, Strong and Prosperous India.

With the time I forgot about the ad got busy in life, learned the difference between private and public property and accepted the real condition of India. Then suddenly one day I saw this scooter neglected, ruined and standing in a corner and suddenly from nowhere I started humming “Buland Bharat ki Buland Tasveer, Hamara Bajaj. . .” but today meaning was so different.

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.
