Thaipusam 2008 - SP - Day 1

Tired. Very.
But I do have some photos to load, which I am not very happy about.
Hoping...or rather praying ;-P for a better camera next year.
Hope to get better snaps tomorrow.

A beautifully decorated Kavadi.
Minimalistic, yet beautiful.
Idle, before the long walk...
They did it! Alien Vinayagar?
Pain or passion?
No words...
Connections...divine reality
Connections...with whom?
The power of the soul

Your photographs make me jealous.
I recently lost my brand new Olympus. Someone I know stole it, we were visiting his place.
Can you believe that.
The think called bad luck is kinda engraved on my head I guess.
I've been attending a lot of farewell parties offlate, and i so miserably miss my Olympus while everyone is busy clicking.
Anyway...thats just life.
You doing good now ?

well u do wonders with ur present set Siva ... I would love to see what you do with a more sophisticated version ...

when heart connects with the unknown .. when what you believe is no more just what others have told you .. when you rise beyond your human flesh ... you attain powers that mere mortals like me can never gain .. for you can get Him only when you have completely lost yourself .. what pain what joy everything is mere expressions left ..

well done

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
