Dilli Haat in January

On a chilly winter evening in January one place in Delhi welcomes foodies and shopaholics with open arms. This place is called Dilli Haat. My friends and I decided to go to Dilli Haat one evening last week when the sky was a beautiful shade of blue.

The place was decorated with lights and flags and the breeze ensured that both danced in harmony.

The lanterns and stars gave a rustic touch to the ambiance.

Musicians from Rajasthan kept the visitors entertained while they ate and shopped.

With several stalls of ear-rings I spoilt for choice.

There were several shoe stalls as well which caught my attention.
The knickknacks attracted us the most and we all bought something unique. Lopa bought this keychain.

We left after a round of loud of laughter over a delicious meal.

DIY Project for My Prized Possessions

I have mentioned my love for ear-rings several times on my blog. A conversation with my friend Jessica led me to search near and far for an ideal solution to display my ear-rings. After discussing several ideas with friends and family (yes, I take my ear-rings very seriously), I finally zeroed in on this particular way to arrange my ear-rings.

I bought:
1. A beautiful wrought iron frame for Rs. 350/-
2. Wire-mesh for Rs. 50/-

I went to a iron smith to get the mesh welded into the frame. He took Rs. 80/- for his labour.

Used the remaining wire mesh to cut two rectangles for my ear-screws. I raided my cupboard and found red adhesive tape to cover the edges of the rectangles.

Here is the result of the project. I'm now a proud owner of the best system to arrange ear-rings I've ever seen :D

Happy New Year

Procrastination, it seems, has become my New Year Resolution for 2012. I'm running a little late already this year because I went on a vacation to usher in the New Year.

I began the year on a great note by visiting my best friend, Kanchan and her husband Kshiteej, in Pune. Fell in love with the city. I had so much fun with friends that I forgot to take my camera out for most part of the trip. Kanchan and Tanmay (a new friend I made on the trip) were kind enough to take me to Khadakwasla (a dam) to take some pictures and exercise my shutter as the sun set on one of the first evenings of the year.

We reached the dam just a few minutes before the sun went down. The big banyan tree looked beautiful with its roots reaching the water.

I really enjoyed going shutter crazy as the sun played peek-a-boo from behind the branches of the trees.

And like everywhere else in the world, couples shared some sweet moments on the banks of the lake.

The sun exhibited all its glory in its dying moments.

With the sun setting, the banyan tree once again stole my heart in the golden glow.

The stars also came out to play as Tanmay encouraged me to play a little more with my camera and its settings.

The silhouettes of the hills in the aftermath of the sunset ensured that I fell a little more in love with the city.

The exercise with the camera made us hungry and we feasted on some well roasted corncob.

The corncob being roasted on coal lured me into taking some shots of the brilliant firework.

I hope this year is filled with beautiful sunsets for all of you. I promise to better my frequency of posting blogs and visiting other blogs and posting comments.

Last Batch of 2011 Photographs: Landscapes of Bharatpur

A very Happy New Year to everyone. I had gone to Pune for a week-long vacation just as 2011 breathed its last. Since I'm still left with the last batch of photographs from Bharatpur, I decided to show them to you before I begin 2012 on my blog. Hope you all enjoyed welcoming the New Year. I certainly did. More about my trip to Pune in the next post. Here are some photographs of the landscape I took in Bharatpur.
