Pensive...



When I saw this little boy looking out deep in thought at the vast bare lands, I just couldnt help but capture the expression in his eyes..
Although the pic has some reflections of the car window, I thought this earns a place in my blog :)

If parallels do meet in infinity...I think I was (almost) there ;)

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?


Doves looking out in to the garden from the city palace in Jaipur where the current Maha Rajah lives.

Bitter-sweet...

Monkey feasting on fruits of Neem(Kohomba) tree located by a busy road in New Delhi.

He was so engrossed in the apparent "sweetness" that he did not notice the spy at the window above...

Odd man out.....



Ornate sand stone pillars in the complex near Qutub Minar, New Delhi.


The homely looking post in the middle seems to be carrying the larger portion of the weight on his shoulders while the pretty ones gets to flaunt their beauty... : )
