A morning walk in Lalbagh

After a long, long time I visited Lalbagh botanical garden. Went for walk with two of my friends on a Saturday morning. It was buzzing with activities, people of all age groups, few with family, few with friends, few alone walking, jogging, running around to keep themselves fit. Here are some random shots from Lalbagh –

People and Portraits

Lot of my friends who see my people-portrait photos say that I capture those in an unique way with different moods and expressions. Often a question is asked – “How I manage to capture those expressions?”. Answer – I don’t know. I just wait for them and click. And personally I don’t prefer to capture people posing for me. I go for natural poses and most of my photos are captured unaware of the subjects. MithilNikon D70s, 1/250 second, F/5.6, 75 mm I went on a three day trek in Western ghats and got a chance to meet new people and capture them. So here goes a series of people-portraits […]

Dream that's gonna stay as one

I don’t remember when I read ‘Karvalo’ for the first time, that was more than 11-12 years ago. After finishing the book, for the next week I was contending myself on the book whether it’s a fiction or a true story. Over next few years, I’ve read the same book countless number of time. Just that one book made me a fan of Poorna Chandra Tejaswi. Later, I got hold of his other works – ‘Jugari Cross’, ‘Chidambara Rahasya’, ‘Huliyoorina Sarahaddu’, ‘Abachoorina Post Office’, ‘Kiragoorina Gayyaligalu’ and ‘Annana Nenapu’, about Kuvempu, his father and well known poet & writer. I liked the way of his writing style. Each and every […]

Magic with words

I was reading ‘Sanna Kathegalu – Volume 1‘, short stories by Maasti Venkatesh Iyengar, and there was this short poem in one of the stories. When I read it first, it felt familiar. It took me some time to make out the original rhyme. What a magic with words. Kannada What a wonderful language it is. Wonderful translation done here. Any guess on the original poem? 😉 Speaking about translation works, B>M Sri has done an amazing work in translating English poems to Kannada. Karunaalu baa belake is one such example. Original is here – Lead, kindly Light
