A Word A Week Challenge: Music

My entry for this week’s ‘A word a week challenge




Loving Always….

I would like to share a poem written by my friend- Priya Narang. She is an ophthalmologist by profession, and I always saw her as someone very passionate about her work. I loved these few lines that she shared with us, and frankly, took me by surprise.

A Word A Week Challenge: Action

This week’s word a week’s challenge is Action. My entry for the same is-

103_0021Some time back, the Indian Army showcased their might of arms and artillery for the public. The people and most importantly, the kids were given a live demonstration of how the tanks, guns (even the very large ones) worked. Seen here, is my daughter learning to man a ‘land to air’ gun, used for targeting enemy fighter planes!!

Phoneography challenge: My Neighbourhood

This week’s Phoneography challenge: my neighbourhood

I’m not very good at this, in fact, my first attempt at something like this.

20130313_070420This board here says “Police Headquarters” in Gujarati language. My neighbourhood comprises of the city police establishment. We wake up to the sounds of the police band playing the marching tunes in the mornings.

In India, feeding a cow means ablutions from all your sins. So people buy the fodder from him and feed the cows. It works well for both the parties!!



The Sabarmati river, very much a part of my neighbourhood. As the temperatures have soared and the flow of water decreased, the algae has covered the riverbed and turned it into a swamp. It all looks bad, but the good news that it has attracted a whole lot of water birds, like comb ducks, lapwings, egrets, kingfishers, terns, cormorants, ibises, etc. Today I even saw a flock of painted storks.
