Paper Flower

A summer night’s dream Dreamt in many languages Carving the same name On whitewashed walls Squinting against the 3:30 pm sun Swaying in the reluctant breeze Always in the same colour Even when stripped of all colour I only see you in the peculiar pink of the bougainvillea of my dreams

Howrah Express

A short memoir of childhood journeys in the Howrah Express from Ahmedabad to Calcutta.

Work-Life Balance

Catching the dusty sun beyond my home; Across a line of borrowed water Dying, still, between two slabs of concrete; Grey half-circles under its eyes, In a hurry to leave, The day’s pending jobs hiding in twilight To reappear at daybreak When a dusty sun rises.

A + C in Jaisalmer

A most exciting time in the golden desert sands of the Thar desert with these two people who are so-much-in-love – would be any photographer’s dream.

Navneet is the better half of the couple who run…

How do you like your coffee?

I like mine strong. And I appreciate it in all its forms. Here’s one time I saw how the big, bad machines make some. I felt like I was instantly transported to some city that’s still living the ’70s.


There’s a bright happiness in yellow that other colours don’t have. I find yellow charming, and if done as elegantly as this for a wedding venue, it certainly brings some visual warmth to a winter set-up.
