Bhagamandala Cricket Ground

Bhagamandala, a small village in the far end of the Coorg is my native. Blessed with abundance of nature, it is one of the most beautiful villages in India. This picture is the Government school ground, where I spent all my summer playing cricket. Every time I look at the majestic hills, the lush green tress surrounding the ground, I cant help but think how lucky are the kids of Bhagamandala who get to play on this ground everyday.

Invasion, this is a picture of the lake inside Lalbagh, Bangalore on a very cloudy day. Looking at the sky I felt like the dark clouds would descend down upon us with fury.

Sharing a Smile

How often do we smile? i always ask myself this question when I feel the lines tighten my forehead almost choking my brain. Somewhere in this rat race we have almost forgotten to smile, we hardly smile at home, office how can we, with so much work, and to strangers on the road, out of question. The biggest irony of life I always felt was watching the laughter club in parks of almost every city. We need to fix a time, tell ourselves laughter is good for health and force ourselves to laugh out loud while all the while life keeps throwing you moments of joy, of laughter all around. Here is me sharing a smile with all of you, lets smile and laugh and leave behind the worries that plague our lives.

Making of a SuperStar

Often we come across people saying "if only I had the money to buy that, I could have excelled." "If only  my parents had agreed to send me to those classes, I would have conquered the world."
"If only I was as talented as him, I could have done something with my life."
"I am better than my neighbor that is enough for me."

We never for a second think what makes people excel, the difference between someone who breaks records and leaves the competition behind is that he is not competing with the world he is competing against himself.
Life will never be perfect, never will we have a perfect scenario where everything falls in place, the only thing that stops us from pushing ahead is ourselves, the single difference between a winner and a loser is that the winner wanted it more than the loser. The only aspect that makes superstars is the determination to become one regardless of the how hard life can hit you in your face.

Dark Clouds - HDR

Dark clouds galore but no sign of rain as lakes of Bangalore dry up with each passing day. This picture was shot from my terrace and processed as a HDR from a single image.
