Sail through...

Sail through... Visiting my friend, who lives in Hertfordshire was always a joyous moment. First, he lived away from the main city- that gave me an opportunity to see the country side and he lived in a big apartment- that accommodated all our friends..so, basically, it was party time. On our evening walks to the nearby playground, we saw a group of people training for a sailing event...I knew they would sail through.

The Act

The Act Strolling with my fellow classmates, we were intrigued by the crowed gathered at the corner of the street at St. Germain, Paris only to learn that a young lad was displaying this balancing act using a glass sphere. The show lasted for 15mins but the memory , I think, is going to last for ever.

Home is where the heart is

Shillu :: Mysore Palace - once the official residence of the former royal family of Mysore, this palace is now one of the most famous tourist attractions in Mysore. It took over 2 decades to complete the construction of this beautiful palace. You can read more details here.
VJ :: Curtains & Bells : Sitting on the sofa at my friends place, I noticed these bells hanging into a string along with the vibrant red & yellow curtains. Occasionally, a breeze tinkles them to check their presence and hence they contribute to the conversation.

Angels & Demons

Shillu :: The picture you see here is a statue of demon - Mahishasura which is located on Chamundi Hills located in India, close to the palace city of Mysore. Legend has it that that the demon Mahishasura, the king of the area that is currently Mysore, was killed by the Goddess Chamundeswari after a fierce battle. The hills hence got their name and a temple of the goddess was built on the top. The goddess is also known as MahishasuraMardini meaning She who slew Mahishasura (Source:Wiki)
VJ :: Attending to the numerous requests by the mankind, running around the world in a jiffy, can make anyone tired. Seems like these angels are just taking a power nap so that they can be up and about in no time again...can we have some silence...please ?

Ganesha at home

Shillu :: Ganesha in an urn in my house. I like the reflections of the plants from the balcony in the water.
VJ ::
vakratunda mahakaya suryakoti samaprabha

Meaning: Lord with the twisted trunk, with the brilliant radiance of a billion suns, always remove the obstacles when I am on any challenging task.
