In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.”


The chilly plantations in Thekkady were a pleasant change from the scotching heat in Chennai and I call it my happy place because I really liked the vibes I got after revisiting this picture. It’s a beautiful place and a must visit to everyone who likes and enjoys the peace and calm of nature. – Thekkady, Kerala.



There is absolutely nothing creepy in this picture. But corridors in general, are creepy. When it is really late in the night, this tiny part of a building is a scary stretch to walk into. From man-made calamities to camping days, dark corridors have seemed lonesome to me. It is creepy in a different sense. More of perceptive creepiness that creeps into you when you get scared. Did I confuse you? Well, this post was meant to. – Shot at Thekkady

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”


There are times when you are in a dilemma. You are confused. You rethink the next step you should take. You rethink which path to choose. You go back to steps and wonder if you are doing the right thing by making the next move. There are few things that inspire and push you to do the right thing in the end. That could be anything you don’t regret later in life. When everything seems blue in the darkest hour, you wonder if there is a silver lining. That is what I saw in this picture. A silver lining – literally. Something that makes you decide. Something that differentiates what you want from what you don’t. Something that you know will keep not just you happy but everyone around you happy. Shot at Thekkady, Kerala



This time this is as simple as it gets. A wooden door. In a beautiful resort at Thekkady, Kerala. It is just wonderful how much can be done just for an entrance. From carving it out differently to painting it yellow, there is so much experiment. The beauty of it all is, that is exactly what a door does. It opens up a number of possibilities, giving us the chance to explore and experiment.

Tea plantations in Thekkady. Lush green leaves with a strong fragrance of tea.


The Buddha. Orange robes. Serene. Calm. Beautiful. At Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka.


Tiny doors decorated in Green, Orange and INDIGO. The handiwork is undoubtedly matchless. The paintings on the ceiling and the walls are also breathtaking. Will share them in some of my other posts soon. – Junargarh Fort, Bikaner, Rajasthan.


Violet flowers from the Orchid section in the Perendinia Gardens at Sri Lanka. A must visit for everyone.


Yellow flowers seasoned with deep red spots. Those petals are aesthetically beautiful and symmetrical. No wonder nature is unparalleled in its beauty. Shot at the Perendinia Gardens in Sri Lanka.


Peacock blue. Up close and personal. Such stunning beauty. Unforeseen in nature. Shot at the gardens of the Laxmi Niwas Palace at Bikaner, Rajasthan.


Red. The walls of the Junargarh fort epitomise royalty and the skillful craftsmanship of nimble fingers have left their marks on them. Awestruck by intricacy, colour, contrast and hardwork, one can just keep staring at it and never get bored. – Junargarh Fort, Bikaner, Rajasthan.


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Vivid.”


In December last year, I visited Thekkady. This resort was so nicely decorated for Christmas that the reflections of the lights on the water of the swimming pool was breathtaking in itself. The colours were absolutely vivid and a myriad of them emerged when they touched the water. – Thekkady, Kerala.
