I was at the WIlls India Fashion Week few months back documenting backstage for Bodice. Few of the photographs are up at the Bodice Blog, while the ones that aren’t there are here.

If anybody might be wondering, no, no, most of the photographs are not edited 😉

Aftermath of Holi

1 2 3 4 5 6

This was my first Holi in Delhi and I chose not to step out of the house. People were throwing colours from one building to another, which was preceded by throwing water balloons since the past two days. We have a lot of children living in our colony, so that explains everything.

Holi, back home, in Imphal almost go on for a week. Locally termed as Yaosang, it is more or less like an occasion for hosting sports and cultural activities. Children would usually walk house to house collecting monetary donations or Nakadeng, dressed in colourful traditional attire. Young girls and boys  go for Thabal Chongba, (moonlit dance) which is descriptively a friendly way of meeting or checking out girls/boys from their locality.

I hope to go there someday.

Christmas Paradox

This December, I celebrated Christmas with two of my friends and a few people I met at the Cathedral Sacred Heart in Delhi.

These photographs are just my interpretations of the people and things I saw on the streets.

Here’s my nephew who just celebrated his second birthday on the first day of this year. Couldn’t be there for his birthday but heard he started licking the knife before blowing out the candles.

He happens to be probably the first kid I have ever photographed and damn it wasn’t easy. He kept chasing the camera, running around and pulling my hair.

One good thing, he loves the camera !!

Walk and Walk: Ziro Series #one

Ziro is known to be one of the oldest towns in Arunachal Pradesh, which is also the home for the Apatani people. Besides the mountains, rice farms and orchards, Arunachal has an ample number of helipads. This is one of them.

My friend says this is probably the only helipad in Ziro, which I guess is true and which is why the helipad usually becomes a football ground for most of the kids out there. Then with preferences, the football field would also temporarily turn into a cycling track or a grazing field for a lonely cow.

We preferred strolling and looking at the mountains.


Don’t Get Hit By a Rocket

Well, this Diwali, we decided to walk on the streets of the city and watch the fireworks. Fun.

It somewhat turned out to be a good idea. We almost got hit by a rocket. Missed me by few inches. Fun.

[Incase you are wondering what Diwali is, check here. Incase you already know, I hope that I put up more photographs later. Soon. Fun.]

Besides, wishing all, Happy Fireworks.

Fog People

Shot at Shillong on a summer day. It was full of clouds and fog and very few people. Here are the photographs of the few people I came across.

Man at Work

I stood there for thirty minutes and he was patiently purifying a single column of those glass panes. What should I call this? Meaningful or just another slow kind?

Or I guess it was his first day at work.
