Spring Time!

Chirpy Sparrow, Where have you flown? Wont you chirp again? Its Spring time; wont you soak in the sheen of Sun? Wont you soar in the gardens bloom? Wont you be ever back? I miss you in all seasons!

On a rainy day!

When thunderous rains strike on a dark night,
I wonder beneath my warm covers: how do little birds survive rains?

Art of Sharing!


...just watching you was such a delight...

Quiet Demise

Yaad Karoge Main Jo Na Hoon toa..
Rutha na jaana tumse kahoon toa...

**Water Color, 27X37cm**

Lesser Mortals

I cant believe as I write this that we have reached a day when not exotic birds, but even house sparrows are getting eliminated from being our co-inhabitants of this planet! How far will we go on our narcissist trip before we realize we need companions?!

Do read about ornithologist Mohammed Dilawar  who works towards conservation of Sparrows...

At times, some questions go unanswered..
and so do some prayers...!

[Portrait inspired by a photo of Hollywood Actor Leonardo Di Caprio]

Quoting words of my friend Jay Krishnan:
"If one loses the gift of daydreaming, if one is no longer capable of wonder life ceases, like birds stop coming to an orchard that is dead. Who knows after time sand papers away at our hearts, everyday little by little, else there may come a morning when we may never again feel wonder in its full glory, we may never feel as powerfully anymore, we may never leap on an impulsive enthusiasm to do something, appropriateness will restrain the first pure words that come to our mind...never again will stray lines of poetry come to us amidst our chores, music will never make us cry again like children. We will be civil, successful and pointless. We will become shells of those clumsy dreamers we started out as, cast away from the ocean on to a shore where there is nothing but the grime and debris of the modern times. There is no fragrance in a lifetime like that….there is no possibility of becoming a poet in a space like that…it is a ritual of empty gestures madly done and forgotten…"

Quoting this beautiful ghazal sung by Hariharan:

"Phool hai chaand hai kya lagtaa hai
bheed mein sabse judha lagtaa hai "

Royal Enfield. When in motion, I always find it to be such a sensory overdose!
It definitely 'sounds' different from all its peers on any given road.
We can aptly say,  bheed mein sabse judha lagtaa hai  :)

Aawaara Dil

चला जाता हूँ, किसी की धून में, धड़कते दिल के तराने लिये
मिलन की मस्ती भरी आखों में, हज़ारो सपने सुहाने लिये

Made  from a photo I took at Jaipur.

The cycle rickshaw, its puller, the streets, all stretched to their limits...story of all Indian cities.Why is the System designed so that the whole population is polarized towards cities?! High time our cities got their moons..self sufficient satellite towns i mean..

Now, quoting good news on Feb1, 2013. Voila! 'Ask and it shall be given!' is coming true!!!!
"Eight cluster cities will be built around Bangalore at a cost of Rs.2,100 crore to decongest the city, which is bursting with about 10 million people and infrastructure constraints," state Law Minister Suresh Kumar told reporters here after a cabinet meeting here.
