Photo A Day Experiment (PADE) Day10 - Shoes

 Now this is some really unconventional theme. For today's theme Shoes, I checked - rechecked my collection - and I didn't find much of such pics. Then, I found this pic that I shot at Calgary Tower few years back. This photograph not only reminds me of the pics we generally found in forwarded e-mails, but also a famous song from the movie Khamoshi-The Musical - Aj main upar, aasman neeche :), certainly not literally ;)

Aj main upar, aasman neeche
Also, these are my shoes (and yes I am wearing those) and shot through the glass-floor of the Tower. :D

And, I would also like to post another photograph shot during the famous Ganapati Visharjan of Mumbai, 2years back. Though, I am a practicing Hindu Atheist, it's not entirely a satire - but something to ponder upon. This shoe-less foot of religiously and emotionally revered Ganapati tells us how much festivals mean to us but not the people - our own people. It also shouts about hurting the ecology. Well, what else...

A shoe-less foot

  2. Another awesome entry by Mr. Ghumakkar :) That glass tower photo is amazing, it looked scary and sort of unbelieveable until I read where it was taken.
    The second one does show the ugly face of rituals, sad!

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

What Travelling earns....People?

When travelling is your passion, you are bound to see a lot in your life, meet a thousand through your journey. I realised a day back only that most of us love to write what we did on our trip, what places we visited, how was the road, the hotel, the people. The People! Do we actually write about the people we met, or the men or women we spend a good time with? I did meet few people on rides, while flying or on train journey who left a deep impression on me. But, never actually took pain, if any, to jot down about them. Just them and there stories. So, in this post I will be talking about the People only, a few of the few meeting with whom I still cherish. If you RIDE a Bullet, you ought to know him There are many a people all over India and World, who love to ride. Few of them love to brag about there rides, most are just concerned about there rides. I belong to the earlier class, ride and blow your own trumpet! This person, about whom I’m writing this section, religiousl
