Hey Lady! Not my cap.

This little fella thought I was after his cap, whereas all I wanted was to capture his innocence through my lens.

A Bird's Eye View of the World

This beautiful migratory bird was perched on the top branch of a tree at the Delhi Zoo and was busy looking down upon the passers-by.

Portrait of a Lady


I saw this beautiful Kashmiri lady perched on one of the cemented low bridges at the Delhi Zoo. Soon after I clicked this photograph, she looked away. Before I proceeded, she looked at me again and gave me the sweetest smile ever. I wish I had captured that smile for you as well but I was too busy returning the smile.

Narcissist Swan







A swan after my own heart. A totally narcissist bird, it kept looking at its reflection for a better part of 15 minutes that I was in front of the pond in the Delhi Zoo.

Dancing Doll



This huge dancing doll is one of many that have been installed at various points within the premise of Dilli Haat. I saw a lot of people posing in front of them for photographs. Just a little push at the dress of the doll and it dances beautifully.

Happy Valentine's Day


Love is surely in the air. Spotted this elephant couple busy flirting with each other at the Delhi Zoo. Look at the stylish male, with his legs crossed, oozing confidence and the female coyly listening to her mate :-)

Jaguar

The weather is Delhi is just right to go for a half-day long visit to the Delhi Zoo. I did exactly that yesterday. It is the perfect place to go shutter-crazy. Animals, birds, people... everyone is click- able.

This jaguar posed for me from behind its cage.



Will bring more photographs from my trip in the days to come.

Blushing at Sunset-Krishi Bhawan



I like the way the setting sun makes Krishi Bhawan blush into tones of pink while the sky enjoys being blue.

India Gate



A view of India Gate from far away. This is one place I visit to be happy whenever my mood seems to be going south. As usual the place worked its magic earlier this week and this photograph is the prized possession I took of my happy place.

Which is your happy place?

Music in the Park: Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma & Ustad Zakir Hussain

Though I did not get the best of photographs yesterday, I still want to share some moments from yesterday with all of you. As the moon was rising, my friends and I had rushed from office to be a part of a soul stirring musical experience at Nehru Park.



As a part of the Music in the Park concerts organized by SPIC MACAY (Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth), santoor maestro Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma and the man who creates magic on the tabla, Ustad Zakir Hussain held the audience in rapture for a little more than 2 hours of continuous performance. The two legends came together to pay a tribute to the Late Pandit Bhimsen Joshi.



Here is a short video clip of the music I revelled in for nearly 2 hours.

Raisina Hill at Dusk



Dusk is the best time of the day to visit the Raisina Hill. The moment when the sunlight simmers and the lamposts are switched on is nothing but magical. The red blooms just add to the drama around some of the highest government offices of India.

Shri Ganesh on the Drive



This is the little statue of Lord Ganesh (Ganpati) that sits on the dashboard of my car.

Buddha at Bercos


This is the wall at the Chinese food joint Bercos in Connaught Place. I frequent this place a lot with my friends and family and this wall is one of my favourite things at the joint apart from the delicious food.

Tughlaqabad Fort

On Sunday, I went to Tughlaqabad Fort on a walk conducted by the India Habitat Centre. I really like the concept of the walk, where a Delhiite takes a group of walkers around a place in the city telling the group different things about the place, such as the history of the place, associated legends and myths and best spots for amazing views.
