Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy in Writing

It’s been some time since I participated in Weekly Photo Challenges. This week’s challenge caught my eye and made me realise that 2013, although was a jerky uphill-downhill run for me, it had many great moments as well – especially in writing. This photo was taken by my friend Nu in one of our meetings… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy in Writing

Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated Timbrrrrrrr

 My college isn’t the only place which is GREEN. In fact, every campus area…well…the whole city is in a lush green surrounding. This was taken on a not so cloudy day in the rainy season besides the head canteen of the university. We came across this area when we bunked the class for an early… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated Timbrrrrrrr

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns to Wood and Paper

Earlier this year during my college trip to a far away countryside, in a deer sanctuary (we spotted ONLY four deer and one was ready to chase us till the very end for a hearty snack. That stalker deer), we took a little break in what looked like a fairly big open cottage. The roof of the cottage looked like this. The cottage cooled us from the scorching heat and it even gave me some time to take some good shots. (I had to make do with photos like these and dying trees and leaves. The deer only began to stalk us afterwards.)


The Fort of Books.
While walking on a street in FORT, Mumbai, I actually spotted a real fort. The photo below is just one side of the big book fort. It was even stacked in a way that one could go inside and search for more books. Now, this is one place where one could spend hours and days but sadly, some of the sellers pester you till you lose your mind.

Inside The Red Brick Building


We call this building – my college – the Red Brick Building.  The college is getting greener and greener every year and the plants have literally taken control over the building. There is not a single place to sit because every corner of the building is occupied by a proud, annoying plant. Even from outside, in a few years, the college would be hard to make out for all the huge trees growing at the entrance.

Sometimes, we call it the Red Fortress. Because IT IS one. And it will be. We always imagine a post-apocalyptic version of the college, where the place is still intact but overgrown by dried plants and trees. We have gone far enough to make an alien invasion story, and an alternate reality story involving the red brick fortress.

This college makes you do crazy things.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mumbai Rains Sea Adventure

My 5 day lone adventure in Mumbai proved to me a memorable one. It was the first time I traveled alone, and that too in a big, fast metropolis. But the Maximum City greeted me with its liveliness and even with its powerful gushing rains. Of the five days, I spent two days near sea.… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Mumbai Rains Sea Adventure
