Fitness has no barriers

Even the cattle near our office knows the importance of evening walks. Even if that means blocking traffic on the road. This picture will be submitted for monochrome maniacs.

Skywatch Friday..

I love the way how every sunset, and every day the sky is different. Can't seem to get satisfied with sky photographs at all.
My Inspiration to start posting for skywatch was magiceye, a.k.a, deepak, who is regular on "Skywatch Friday"

Rules bent at their convenience...

Maha govt for Marathi number plates in Mumbai : Tuesday, April 08, 2008
Mumbai: The Maharashtra government is going to seek permission of the Central Government to allow Marathi number plates on the vehicles in the city.
Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil said in the State Council that English number plate is must as per the Motor Vehicle Act 1989. Marathi number plate can be used by the owner besides the English plate. The state government needs approval from the Centre to amend the Act and introduce Marathi number plates on the vehicles in the city, the minister said. Patil also assured that the matter will be taken in to the cabinet meeting soon. The issue of Marathi number plate was raised by Shiv Sena MLC Diwakar Raote. He said carrying Marathi number plate is crime in the state. RTO officials impose fine on such number plates, Patil added.

Monochrome Monday...

The tree near our office doesnt have a single leaf on it. It was the most appropriate shot for the monsoon-craving weather.

Prison can be anywhere...

This snap is of an aquarium in our gymnasium. Though it looks beautiful, I am sure it feels like prison to the fishes in there. No matter how beautiful, there is nothing more worth having than freedom.

Death is just the beginning...

This image is of a graveyard visible directly through my balcony. When we bought this house, many people advised us against buying the house because of the graveyard view, but THANKFULLY, my parents didnt listen to those people and bought the house. I took the opportunity to occupy the room that has a direct view of the same and I have had the most peacefuly evenings in my balcony since Day One.
When it comes to ghosts, I dont believe in them, unless i experience something,..What about u??

Shopping is just a step away...

Thats the gulmohar (I THINK thats what its called...) tree in front of our building that accesorises the Asia's Largest Mall "R-City". Life is beautiful with some greenery around.

PLANT more TREES...!!!

Disaster is round the corner...

This is a heap of plastic bags. Shot taken at the Bandra on the way to the masjid on 9th June 2009 @ 6:15 pm.
I was explaining to the rickshaw guy how it takes 200 years for one plastic bag to deteriorate and he was really surprised.

Beauty in the rarest place.

I realised that for continuing this blog regularly, I will have to open my eyes and actually look around from a different view. Surprisingly, I found this beautiful tree and what I call a nice shot, in the most unexpected place.

This picture is shot near our office, in MIDC Vashi, on 4th June 2009, @ 5:45 pm. I call the place unexpected, coz the area is full of pollution and chemical waste, etc. Its unbelievable how nature finds its way around all odds...

Friendship is just a glance away...

That's my friend that used to keep me company during my mom's hospitalisation recently. This little feathered friend has been my mode of entertainment (Wink*) in many ways than one.
Clicked this photograph on 4Th June 2009, when I was packing up stuff for mom's discharge.

I will miss you buddy..!!!

Terror was just a blink away...

Had visited the Taj sometime back. Can't exactly recollect when this photograph was clicked, but while scanning my phone for old pics, I knew this photograph HAD to be a part of my blog.

This picture only reminds me of the helplessness I felt when i was sitting at home feeling safe on 26/11 while the brave soldiers fought with their lives at stake.

My obsession with Sunsets continues..Here's my last photograph of sunset till atleast the end of this week. Will try and get more innovative with my retinas..lol

Shot taken on 2nd June @ 7:01 pm.
I love sunsets...Being a "colors" person, I love the shades that the sunset forms in the sky....and the feeling it gives, from warmth to dark...I can relate life to it.

An evening to remember...

A view from my balcony of the club area of my building on 20Th May 2009 @ 7:08 pm. I couldn't resist myself from clicking those photograph..The feel of the scene was so beautiful...Orange sky...flamingos flying around...No sound, not even traffic or birds...and the sweet scent that emits from the earth after the first rain of monsoon.... I wish there was some way to capture that fragrance, but thankfully I could capture the image of nature's beauty. :)
