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.

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.

A coffee Cup.

बच्पन में जब माँ मुझे इंडियन कॉफ़ी हाउस लाती थी तब इस कप में बहुत सारी कॉफ़ी आती थी।
जवानी में वो घन्टौं ना खत्म होने वाली बातें न जाने कैसे इस एक कप के सहारे ही हो जाती थी।
अब ना तो इस में बहुत सारी कॉफ़ी आती है और ना ही अब ये घन्टौं चलता है। न जाने क्यूँ अब ये कप बहोत छोटा हो गया है।

Love Life Surrender

On a one fine winter morning I was just roaming around in one of the streets of Goner a village near Jaipur. I saw this small structure in ruins and started thinking how to photograph it? Then suddenly I saw this guy with his camel passing by from outside, I asked him to stop and pose for me. First he thought I was joking but then he stopped and posed & that’s how I got this photograph.
