On vacation — pun intended

Vacations — how we love them! It’s not just the water which comes in shades that give the colour blue not just a personality, but a soul; it’s not the sand that’s so fine that you’re tempted swim in it; nor does the salty tang of the insistent ocean breeze really explain it. What really […]

The life of a photograph, by Sam Abell

One of the most impactful books I’ve read about photography. Very little words, except the thousands in the photographs.

A day in Melaka

I hit the road last weekend with a few friends to travel to Melaka for a couple of days. It’s been quite a while since I travelled anywhere just for the sake of travel – so even though it was a short trip, it was a good one. The moment you cross the border from […]

A walk at Versova beach

I was home for just a weekend, but no trip home is complete without a walk on the beach, which thankfully happens to be just a hop, skip and jump away from my house. The first thing to catch my attention was this fellow, whose name was Nilesh and he happily agreed to be photographed. […]

Postcard from Mumbai

Hope everyone’s been having happy holidays. Happy 2007 to all. This, by the way, is the view from my window at home. Probably the greatest wealth I will ever have.
