171. Bang!Bang!

Just seeing this photograph reminded me of the nancy sinatra’s song- Bang Bang(My Baby shot me down). Another self-portrait using the awesome natural lights which come through my windows. I am thinking of making it sort of a collection of my black and white self-portraits

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

Sometimes you wonder where is that fundamental right to education when you saw a 6 year old child treading a rope just to get something to eat.

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 on the streets of Airoli, Navi Mumbai. I observed this from a long distance and was prepared to make this photograph. This is not a usual sight when you live in a metro city like Mumbai. Well, a city has all its colors 🙂

The local train at Thane station. Thane station is special in terms of Railway as it is the place from where the first train started off.

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.

Took this at Mulund, Mumbai. The institute at Mulund where I teach is in the middle of a vegetable market. I will be taking more photographs of this place soon. Keep visiting here

Was not able to upload any photographs as my internet connection got dis-connnected . This is the photograph of Airoli station. This is a platform on the harbour line. The Harbour Line is a branch of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. It is operated by Central Railways. It covers most of Navi Mumbai and the eastern areas of Mumbai. It has all these beautiful platforms with special design to use natural light as much as possible.
