>Photo of the day – Latest Addiction

In Uncategorized on January 28, 2011 by kulliprashant


Grey Heron sits on a small rock in the Manchinbele reservoir, near Bengaluru
Bird watching and bird photography has been my latest addiction. I have never got up early in the morning to attend the classes during my college days, but there is a very little struggle nowadays getting up early that too on weekends for the most exciting thing of bird watching. I didn’t know that there are more than 300 species of birds sighted in and around Bengaluru. I’ve been exploring a lot of places for birding. It has been going good. 
Watch out for all the birding places in and around Bengaluru. 


>Photo of the day – "The Waiting"

In Desperate, Importance of something, Photography, The waiting on January 27, 2011 by kulliprashant


A girl standing at the edge of a water fall seemed like waiting for someone
The hell broke loose; the surrounding turned turbulent; standing on the edge of the death; the wait seemed never ending, for her.
Waiting is always an exciting thing when it comes to waiting for a special occasion; or waiting for your dream job or dream home or some materialistic attraction. Waiting can keep one on the other extreme too. When one waits for something (or someone) that never seems to come back, the waiting puts a lot of anxiety in the person. Knowing the fact that a thing will never get back to you, have you ever waited? How long can a person wait for such a thing? Is there a threshold? Doesn’t life take you along and eventually break the connection between you and the wait and set you free?
If you see, we always wait more desperately or eagerly for something which we lost during the course of life than for something which we never owned(but have a wish to own)! If we weigh the importance of something which we desired to have, it is weighed more only before receiving it and/or after losing it.


>Photo of the day – "I am not a philosopher"

In Philosopher, Photo Story, Photography, Silhouette, Thoughts on January 26, 2011 by kulliprashant


Today for a change I am posting one of the photographs that my friend Lawrence shot. All the credit for this wonderful photograph should go to him. I personally liked the pic a lot 🙂

While I am posting photographs and writing few thoughts around them, few people have started thinking that I have become a philosopher. Nope. I am not a philosopher and I don’t deserve to be one. I have just lived a small part of my life so far, so I can think and write only from the perspective of the stage of life I am in right now. I am yet to see more of life, yet to gain a lot experience, yet to learn a lot from others. 
Looking forward for more of life  (Photo Courtesy: Lawrence Mesquita)
I am trying to relate few thoughts with the photographs. The photographs are really not taken with any thoughts associated with them. The thoughts are attached to the photographs after they were clicked. When I looked into my archives, I found the photos are dead without any story associated with them. So I started  putting together the photos and the thoughts. I am also glad to hear that a lot of people have liked the way this blog is going. Thanks people! Your encouragement will keep me clicking more and let the thoughts around them flow.

btw, my friend has given me an image which makes my Travel Blog look perfect now where the title, caption, image and the content, all of them fit together the best. Thanks Lawrence!


Photo of the day – A Couple on a travel

In A couple, City Palace, Photography, Rajasthan, Travel, Udaipur on January 25, 2011 by kulliprashant

A couple in Udaipur, City Palace, Rajasthan seemed to be looking through some map
Going places and exploring the world is a pure joy. What is life without the travel? I can’t imagine. If you have a companion who shares the same interest then the journey would be even more interesting. Some travelers I met and spoke to during my travel all these days, were very inspiring. I spoke to an elderly woman, who had a wish to step in most of the countries on the earth. She made her dream come true by exploring the South African wildlife; SA being the last country in her list. She said she has carried loads of moments from her traveling experience.

I too have a wish to travel as much as possible. Traveling keeps my life going. I hope it continues this way till the end.


Photo of the day – “The Burden of the Past?”

In "Burden of the Past", Agony, Old age, portrait photography, Street photography on January 12, 2011 by kulliprashant

The Burden of the Past?

Wrinkles on the face; faded enthusiasm; the ropes tied to his shoulders which carried a huge weight; shoulders seemed to have given up yet the legs seemed to be pushing forward; the time is slipping as he approaches the end of life; neither a smile on the face nor agony is shown; feels like that man was just indifferent to what he was up to. It appears, more than the weight on the shoulders he carried the burden of the past. 


Photo of the day – "A rich smile"

In balloon seller, Children, Footpath, Poverty, Rajasthan, Rich, Street photography on January 11, 2011 by kulliprashant

What makes you richer?

Hanging on to the divider of a road, tired of running around for the whole day, yet passing that contagious smile to the people who give her a stare, there stood a little girl watching her dad sell as many balloons as possible for that day. Little does she know about wealth, little does she know about the life, yet that smile had so much of inspiration for the grown ups. I just feel when she smiles and looks at people it appears as if she is asking them a question “what makes you feel richer?”


Just when I thought…

In Uncategorized on January 10, 2011 by kulliprashant

Just when I thought I would be more expressive this year and start blogging regularly, a mail from a friend of mine, threatened me with the following content in it. It is a snip from the Horoscope for 2011 that is forwarded to me. 

Beware, as Ganesha warns you against expressing yourself freely on social media. Take good care of yourself towards the end of the year. Saturn in your 8th House may mean some problems. Take care! All in all, a wonderful and adventurous year ahead of you you, yet do remember that too much risk is injurious to health.

This horoscope is a crazy stuff when you receive it in your inbox. You don’t want to read it also, and without reading you can’t delete it also.  All in all, it seems to be an adventurous year ahead for me. I have never stepped back facing adventures in life so far. What’s the fun if it is not adventurous. Living a smooth life is more like doing a wild water rafting in still water! So I am up and prepared for it. One good thing I hear is that the year would be very exciting as far as travel is concerned. I hope I reach out to many places in the coming year too, and come up with wonderful set of photographs. More importantly with a wonderful moments to be cherished for lifetime.

Hope it all goes well with everyone around!
