Battle Beholders : Photography Exhibition

Today I visited wildlife photography exhibition at Bal-Gandharv Art Gallery, Pune. I am really surprised by the profiles of the People who has exhibited there photographs captures in different parts from all over the world.

They all were hobby photographers. 6 of them were Police and Excise commissioner and one was business man. It is really amazing to know that people nourishes their passion in the rat race of earning livelihood.

These group of people also know as focal group and they also released their group web site where you can find all of their work.

And the interesting fact is they have majority of their photos from India.

They have captured the photographs from Ranthambore(Rajsthan), Kanziranga(Assam), Gir(Gujraat).

Those were really beautiful photographs. I liked it.





Swine flu has not gone Sirji.....Keep patrolling...

Swine Flu claims 3 lives in Pune; toll rises to 52 (Source - PTI)

Swine Flu is still not in control. Doctors and giving there sweat and blood day and night trying to cure the swine flu patient but where is the part of duty from our side, the citizen’s side.

At the start everybody was scared and trying to do every possible thing that can prevent swine flu from occurring but now every body is thinking that swine flu is not that much serious and there is very less probability that swine flu will attack them. Earlier people were afraid of seeing the news of 1 or 2 deaths per day but now the death count has risen to 8 per day but now they started ignoring that.

But is only the part of duty from citizen why government is not doing some strict actions. Doctors intimated that Ganesh Festival can be the serious carrier for swine flu decease but government did not put a ban on it. As a result there are more numbers of patients found after Ganesh Festival.

Now Navratri is getting started, now again …

Want to revisit Agakhan Palace and Shinde Chatri...

From many days I am planning to revisit Aga Khan Palace and Shinde Chatri. Since both the place has the historical background and cool British architecture. Its a perfect place to get some great shots.

Today I planned to visit Shinde chatri but couldn't go there due to some unplanned work.

May be next week end I will visit those beautiful places.

Road to Shinde Chatri:

One of the greatest architectural beauties of the city is the Shindyanchi Chhatri, situated in Wanowrie. It is a memorial dedicated to the great soldier, Mahadji Shinde. The memorial complex also consists of a temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, which was built by Mahadji himself, in the year 1794. He left for the holy abode the same year and in 1965, Madhavrao Sindhia got the entire complex built, along with the samadhi (memorial). The major attraction of the Shinde Chatri is its exquisite architecture, reflecting the style used in Rajasthan, India. Even years after its construction, the memorial retains its architectural…

Rajgad Trek

Date : 22 August 2009
Finally we have visited the Rajgad fort, the first capital of Maratha kingdom. You must be wondering why I have written like this because we have made a plan to visit it on 15th August 2009 but due to swine flu fear and resistance of the family member I have to shift it to next weekend. So according to that I have dropped an email to all of my friends asking if they can join me. But surprisingly nobody was interested in joining me. What the gun!!!This is happening since all of my friends got married. It sucks…Then I asked some of the seasonal enthusiasts from my office, they also refused so the final list was me and Kaustubh. Last night I went to bed at around 12:30 and woke up at around 4:30am and I realized I have to get fuel for my bike. And I ran to nearest petrol pump but the attainder was not there. The watchmen tried calling him but he was not there. Then I tried for some other petrol pump but bad luck, they all open at 6:00am.So I directly reac…

Do Interesting Things :

We live in interesting times. We’re blessed that way.
The world is changing rapidly.
The way we work is changing, the way we live has already changed. Entire industries are crumbling, and more are growing on their ruins. People are empowered to express themselves, to create, to become a part of a global conversation and transformation, in a way that has never existed before.
What will you do with that?
What will your place be in this new, interesting world? Will you have a voice? Will you be a creator, or just a consumer?
Do something.
Do something interesting.
Be a part of the conversation, and say something remarkable. Create something unique, new, beautiful. Build upon the works of others and transform it into your own.

How to do this?
Write a book. Or an ebook. Write poetry and publis…
