170. Lonely

“रहते थे कभी दिलों में, अब फ़ुटपाथों में रहते हैं,
हर शाम कभी रंगीं थी, अब तनहा रातों में रहते हैं..
मन में तो टूटी दरारें हैं, पर दुनियादारी की ख़ातिर,
कच्चे धागों से बंधे हुये, झूठे नातों में रहते हैं…”
~Kanhaiya

These are some lines wrote by my friend Kanhaiya who is a great poet. After taking this photograph I was searching for some suitable quote for it when I noticed his status. We started talking and he gave these lines to use with the caption. Thanks a lot man!

I feel a little lonely sometimes. Maybe I still miss my college days. 6 days 10-5 work and then nobody to be there when you return gives a sick feeling sometimes. Photography is the only thing that is still protecting me from negativity

This photograph is just a glimpse of the madness of janmashtami in mumbai. Krishna Janmashtami (Devanagari कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी kṛṣṇa janmāṣṭami), also known as Krishnashtami, Saatam Aatham, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Sree Jayanti or sometimes merely as Janmashtami, is an annual commemoration of the birth of Krishna. popularly known in Mumbai and Pune as Dahi Handi, is celebrated with enormous zeal and enthusiasm. The handi is a clay pot filled with buttermilk that is positioned at a convenient height prior to the event. The topmost person on the human pyramid tries to break the handi by hitting it with a blunt object

I always get fascinated by this visual of ‘man working hard without caring for clothes, his body is only visible in some lumps and rest is all covered in dust. So focused on his work that he doesn’t care about anything else’. This sight was close to this idea and hence I captured it to make it immortal 🙂

Taken through the space between bricks which gave such a natural vignetting. This was taken at the Junior college I teach in Mulund. She is one of the helpers and it was around 5 PM. She might be waiting for to go home or maybe lost in some other thoughts.

It was one of those times when you were not able to capture what you actually saw. This mother-daughter couple looked quite happy but as I pointed my camera her look changed. And the photograph having that questioning look on mother and the barefoot daughter tells a completely different story.

Taken at Thane Railway station while going for the job. While traveling a lot for work nowadays I have realized why people say that mumbai is crowded.
