When the Beauty is Whole

  Sometimes, even the most beautiful things are eclipsed. From the partial lunar eclipse on August 8, 2017  

Poetry Atop a Mountain

If you thought poetry existed only in between the pages of a book, you’d be in for a surprise. Somewhere, high above in the mountains, almost lost in the clouds, hidden from civilization, is etched in stone the labors of men who build these impossible roads – at 13,700 feet above sea level. When you…

Come Gently to Me, Autumn

  It’s a day in October. The temperature is chilly to my Indian bones. And the beauty lies, not just in the lake, which of course could be a subject on its own, but also in the quaint houses and street that line the lake. The patterns in the sky are mesmerizing.  Almost, like a…

Mesmerising Colours

One of the most exotic sights in nature is watching jellyfish change colours. Such a mesmerizing sight! This one was taken at the SEA LIFE Aquarium in London.

Tranquility
