Photo A Day Experiment (PADE) Day28 - Special

Not much thinking again, for this Special theme I am posting a pic from my collection that first came to my mind reading the Theme.

Inspired by levitating self-portraits of a Japanese photographer Natsumi Hayashi, I tried this picture with a friend at Rangdum, Zanskar Valley.

This picture post is an Entry to PADE-2013, a month long Photo-blog event. To know more and participate, click here or here. Check themes here.

  1. Punit!!!!!!!! How??????? Wow!!!!!!!!!

    PS: Clear that you have left me speechless!

  2. @Juztamom, I feel his friend jumped and he clicked the photograph. Simple :)

    I also have a similar photograph with my daughter. :)

  3. Really? It doesn't look that simple to me. Won't there be more movement in the photograph? But if you also managed it then Wow!!

    I don't think I will be able to capture it like this. It looks like he is floating in air!!

  4. Awesomesauce capture. Is this you in the picture or your friend? Looks like you (or whoever is in the photo) is on moon and floating around!
    I have never captured anything like this either. This is one 'Special' shot!

  5. Thanks @Juztamom :)

    Well, it was relatively an easy shot, as @StirYourSouls told. The guy was jumping and I was taking multi-shots at high shutter speed (1/2000 sec) to avoid any motion blur. A good light and normal expression on face are the must needed things to make the photo realistic :)

    I expressed it better when my friend learnt to click it, but then it wasn't my shot :P

  6. Thank you @Ritu KT :)
    He was my friend, and we met for the first time on our Zanskar trip organised by Dheeraj of

  7. Naah Punit I think you are just being modest!! It is a great shot!

  8. *shy* thank you @Juztamom :)
    Well, have you visited Natsumi's page? It's a wonderful photography site..

  9. Yes after you mentioned her. And wow some of the shots don't look real!!!!Amazed!!

  10. This is epic .. so expressive yet so subdued .. hats off

Banned Indian Books

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth... Few days back when I came to know about a book on an Indian Business Barron on the Banned Indian Books’ List, the first thing that came in my mind were the lines from Tagore . What an irony, we live in a country, whose forefathers have dreamt about a nation without fear, about a nation with right to speech, right to knowledge; and where the Government enjoys the “privilege” to “freely” ban the books, censor what it feels offensive! Wikipedia describes Banned books as the books whose free access is not permitted. Further it says that the practice of banning books is just another form of censorship, and often has political, religious or moral motivations. In our country, banning books have got its history since the British rule days. In fact, few of the Books

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys .  Evolving Biker Code of the Nation  When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word. But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way

An evening in the Chilika Lake

( This post has been published in TheViewspaper as The Paradise called Chilika ) This year seems to be much more happening than I expected. I realized it when I got an invitation from a senior colleague to attend his marriage at Bhubaneshwar. Hidden was another invitation to revisit the Puri- beach and also the Chilika Lake. I hadn’t still come out of the hangover of my pan-India ride , when the date to fly to the City of Temples knocked at doors. Packing the very morning of departure with least pairs of casuals and 3sets of party wears, I joined Kaustav and Abhimanyu bhaiya on our tour de Chilika and Puri, also the Odiya Wedding. Chilika Lake is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest in World. It is an essentially shallow brackish water lagoon on the east coast, spread over the districts of Puri, Khurda and Ganjam of Odisa state. The lake, popularly known as Chilka, was designated the first Indian Wetland of International importance under the Ramsar
