Shot at Chandni Chowk, a market that was once divided by canals to reflect moonlight. Now there are just too many people staring at you.

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.

Perspectives

Baoli is a term for stepwell in hindi. The one I shot here is locally popular as ‘Agrasen ki Baoli‘ in Delhi. We went once and were late. I could just take around 30 photographs in abrupt 15 minutes with the security guards on the trail.

And with the few photographs I could manage to take, here is my first try at multi-perspective collage.

Hoping to try out more perpective shots of the Baoli, the next time I go a bit early.

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.


My Friend, Smita

A collection of black and white portrait of my friend, Smita. We sat together on our way to Delhi this winter and we didn’t have much to do, besides idle talks and taking each other’s photographs.

Before I realized there was a doubled layered window glass pane!

 


Delhi: A Stack of Old Pile.

I came across few of my old photographs. 3 sweet years back, when I used to roam around with my mini digi cam in my pocket, following people whoever took me anywhere to.

Here is few of the vague and unvague memories of my Delhi visit. Mostly taken on the highway.

     Two running trucks. A tower. An empty toll booth. A few electric poles. A fountain man.

Spot Spot

Spot Spot, as its name implies, is a traditional find the difference game developed by Gilsu Kim. Same as most find the differences games, all you need to do in Spot Spot is to find the all different spots between two almost same images.
