Banana Vendor of Kochi

Shamir, from whom Ma sources our daily dose of energy. I'd clicked these pictures as 26th was a holiday and he came around noon. He patiently moved around his cart for 15 minutes as I requested him to and Ma placed me wherever I wanted to...

Experimenting Macro photography

A Complimentary Pencil

Ma is crazy about the Rubik's Cube
A tiny classic waiting to be read
Tried my hand at Macro Photography with self timer as suggested by a friend. Took at least 25-30 pictures, but, just found these 3 worth putting up here. :)

Some books have a meditative quality.

They make you forget the surroundings,

the colour of paper, fonts, dog ears or any such thing.

Just words and thoughts therein revibrate inside.

Taking you closer to bliss.

Truckloads of Joy

I tried clicking some trucks parked in and around Willingdon Island while returning from work. It is amazing how mundane sights become interesting when you have a camera with you.

Surviving in the daily life

Sometimes while trying to survive in your daily life you tend to miss out noticing what big transformations you have been through over the years. Last Sunday I happened to spend a few hours with two college boys (they may become filmmakers or writers in the future,who knows).  In between the conversation I asked one of them the year of his birth, 1994 he said. His reply made me  wonder aloud 'what was I doing in 94?' I was 22 then, had just joined the Degree Course (or was it my 2nd year?), wishing to make my life worthwhile. But, whatever I'm doing today seemed like impossible dreams at that time.

On Monday, I received a message from a friend saying that 2012 also passed in a jiffy, his son became 8 years old and daughter 4 years old. It made me realise that I’d no such scale to measure my own ageing (even though I'm for almost 15 years now and writing for at least 12 years). So, I feel mentally stuck in my teens or early 20s believing that life is yet to begin.

This video taken in the early 90s further shows the transformation in the physical world as well, these days PCs don't have floppy drives as floppies have become extinct and PCs have began to be replaced by laptops or tabs.

So, looking back can be fun sometimes.

A torn poster and a hoarding


Watching film posters is a weakness from childhood (this was clicked while going to work sitting in an auto).

And, this while coming back...


(was trying to get this hoarding of Biennale on the Thompampady Bridge for a while now).

Happy 2013
