Here is a tragic love story. Interpret it as you will. No words, only pictures here.
Today, 19 August 2020, is World Photography Day. Here is a photo that I clicked today. I dedicate it to #Worldphotographyday.
Paatal-lok is a Hindi phrase meaning deep inside earth or the underworld…It is also a crime thriller, a web series launched recently.
Corona virus has compelled us to introduce new rituals in our homes, making the task of living so much more cumbersome. Each time we bring in anything from outside, it has to be first sanitised.
Vegetables and sealed packets of foodstuffs, in particular, need to be dipped in baking soda solution before using them.
See above…My veggies bought yesterday…happily drying themselves under an electric fan after a soda bath. Water melon seeds, experts say, are good for immunity, so I have placed them too on the table to give them company…
Google Photos gave me a pleasant surprise yesterday (4 January 2019), my day off from work.
They made a movie out of my photos that I clicked that day and sent it to me for saving in my library. It looked so good, an evidence of a day well spent, as in a Jane Austen novel (my great grand neice Alia’s 7th birthday, a walk through a park, sunbathing in the balcony, etc, etc).
I never thought that the photos I created without giving much thought to it would turn into something so wonderful. Well, it proves that movies needn’t always be larger-than-life, doesn’t it?
With wars, calamities, and bloodshed all over the globe and Trump and Iran threatening to go to war, blissful images like these give you a niggling feeling of living in a quiet, cosy cocoon that may burst anytime…

In ones, twos, threes,
Into the lap of their Maker;
Still looking gorgeous…
By their loved ones
Still left on the tree…
Certainly not those
Where their Maker
Will throw them into next;
Inside a book,
Or around a temple idol’s neck,
In a woman’s hair,
Or in a flower seller’s basket,
In a brothel or a home
A tulip, orchid, or a rose,
A dog, cat, bird, reptile, or a human.
