Igatpuri 2



Seeing this farmer walking back home makes me realize how different our path is when we come home. Very few of us even walk back to our homes after a day of work. The journey home is full of traffic jams, sweat, crowded trains, fighting with strangers. If only people living in the city could walk back home like this.

little monk

This one’s from a beautiful monastery in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh. Unfortunately the monastery was closed that day but then we met this cute little monk inside who showed us around, and we were quite amazed by the way he was talking to us so maturely. Clicked this picture while he was leaving after saying goodbye to us.

bhandardara

This was clicked during sunset in the quaint Bhandardara near Nasik. The sun looks smaller than usual and looks like a yellow ping pong ball placed on the mountain. The clear skies of Bhandardara offer an excellent crystal clear view of the sky during both day and night.

goa

Most of us know Baga beach in Goa as a happening party location, always crowded and full of life. But even Baga beach has its own little quiet corner we discovered while we lost our way on the scooter. I was quite happy to have lost the way, it led us to this place.

Himachal flower

It was difficult to pick one flower to click from a huge valley filled with beautiful white flowers.

Lower Vaitarna lake

Yes this is India and not the Maldives or Mauritius.

vaitarna sunset 2

Saw this beautiful sunset on the drive back home from Bhandardara. This particular spot looked untouched by mankind and nature had taken full advantage of that fact.

pawna2

A very secluded and ‘secret’ place near Pawna Dam. The place offers a wonderful panoramic view of the entire dam nestled between oddly shaped hills and mountains. It’s a long drive till this place but its worth it. The blend of orange and blue in the sky is what caught my attention.

Mahabaleshwar monkey

Clicked at the immensely popular hill station near Mumbai and Pune, Mahabaleshwar. You usually find these notorious creatures stealing food from tourists, but this one here looks to be kind of lonely at the moment.

Satara railway

This is a very small railway crossing on the way to Aundh near Rahimatpur station. The hot sun was shining with all its glory that afternoon but the overexposed sky gives this image the feeling of distance and infinity.

Satara

This was clicked in one of the temples in Satara. These two gentlemen here were just sitting there for an hour without saying a word each other and they were unintentionally sitting in a very photogenic manner.

vegetable vendor

This was clicked when I visited the weekly bazaar in Bhandardara. It was quite a scenic market and it was interesting to see the low prices at which things were being sold here compared to the prices in the city.
