Glorious Food

Love to eat. Live to eat. Some people eat to live, well, we are slightly different then. They say that half the pleasure of eating is in seeing and smelling the food. These are some delectable dishes from The Mansingh, in Gwalior.  

Make Portraits

One comes across the most interesting faces most unexpectedly. Never miss a chance. This here, is a very regal looking lady from the Patel community, photographed in Thaltej village, Ahmedabad.

About a Bride

What I particularly enjoy about photographing an Indian Wedding, are, the details; and the sometimes overbearing presence of Red. But then, that’s toned down by ┬áthe elegance of the bride.

Remnants of a Winter

When it was all blue, one brought in some warmth with a bright red lipstick, and some Bombay Sapphire.

Ganga

The Ganga, or as it is locally called: Hooghly, as seen in Serampore, West Bengal.

Little Boxes

Certainly no ordinary pair of boxes, these. Two of the finest indulgence stores in Calcutta – Flurys & Balaram Mullick – the confectioneries are simply delightful.  

Stationery

It has been an inherited habit – of acquiring and appreciating beautiful and well-crafted stationery; note-pads, cards, writing instruments, planners. Here’s a lovely bunch of pencils, note cards, and a pretty as a punch spiral-bound note-pad too.

Have some cake!

The most delectable red velvet cake, a wedding cake at that, from The Pink Box, in New Delhi

Birla Mandir

The immaculate temple to the Goddess Saraswati at the BITS Pilani Campus

The Good Life

A most delightful birthday gift from a most delightful friend. The mug has a Rumi quote inscribed around the inner rim: “I want to sing like the birds sing; not worrying about what who hears or what they think.”
