Convocation renovation at IITB

Well, the convocation hall of my institute (IITB) is undergoing renovation. Yay! I will receive my graduation degree in the new revamped convocation hall. I went in and around to cover it. As usual, I have tried to show it through people working there.

They called me to take their photograph

Can’t resist taking this kind of photographs

The workers- they seemed to be fighting over some work issue but posing nicely for camera

Holi

Holi (Hindi: होली), is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus. Holi is also known as festival of Colors. It is played with water, colors and everything else :P. I covered the celebration of Holi in and around IIT this year.

I din’t sleep last night as I was watching a documentary on Photographer Richard Avedon. I will write about him in some other post. Everyone in hostel was sleeping so I went to slums in the institute.

Powai Lake Promenade

Yesterday I went for a photo-walk on the promenade built on the powai lake. Powai Lake (named after Framaji Kavasji Powai Estate) is an artificial lake, situated in the northern suburb of Mumbai, on Salsette Island, in the Powai valley, where a Powai village with a cluster of huts existed. The city suburb called Powai, shares its name with the lake. Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay one of the premier institutions of science and technology in India is located to the east of the lake.

On the promenade is a garden named Powai Nisarg Udyan. It has a special fountain show but it was not working.

The lake has lot of crocodiles. An unfortunate incident happened last year in which a fisherman was killed by a crocodile.

It was only one shot so there is no story behind it. Although I was ready to run in case the boyfriend spotted me taking their photograph. It was taken on my recent photo-walk to the promenade around Powai lake, Mumbai. I will soon upload the complete story.
