Jaisalmer (3/?) . . Jaisalmer Fort is home to around 2000 people, and is one of India's last living forts. I wonder what it must be like to grow up here! . . @shreybhatia, remembering our conversation about how physical surroundings have an impact on you as a person 🧐 at Jaisalmer Fort

Something in the air this evening made me go back to where I stood 5 (gasp!) years ago, almost to the day. I'm wondering whether the raindrops still turn the baddie-court into a sparkling lake, whether the brick lanes still become green with moss, whether an army of parked umbrellas still transforms the audi reception into a colourful buffet for umbrella 'borrowers', and whether frogs still hop merrily into the hostels. Siiiiiiigh. . . . (Okay, I must admit, I am not nostalgic about the frogs.) . . (56/365) . . #MICApture #LifeAtMICA #MICA #MICAn #monsoon #rain #umbrella #petrichor at MICA

Dayara (3/3) . . I know this is a clichéd picture, but clichés exist for a reason, no? This was taken right after we put up the ⛺. My tent-mates had gone for a walk, so I had this view of Draupadi Ka Danda all to myself. . . A combination of the climb from Gui to Dayara + a nice hot lunch of rajma-chaval + just the right amount of cool wind + sunshine warming my yellow igloo + the buzzing lullaby of the bees...all contributed to a cozy siesta minutes after recording this! . .

Dayara (1/3) . . . “No dawn without the dark.” “No joy without sorrow.” They say you need contrasts to really feel a current state.  A collection of contrasts – this is how I remember my first trek. . . · City feet in new shoes | Shepherds’ paths cut into old highlands . . ·  Looking down, tunnel vision, measuring my steps | Looking around, horizons expanding, as forest and peak revealed secrets . . ·  The unhemmed, open skies of the great outdoors | The economy of movement in a tent shared with two other people . . ·  Grimy, without a bath for a week | Fresh, with mountain air and new experiences . . ·  Shivering, as ice crystals formed on the tent zipped against the cold night | Face turned towards the east, welcoming the warm sunrise . . ·  Hours dragging on torturously under aching feet | Exhilarating seconds sliding down a snowy slope . . ·  A stranger’s hand to help me up a narrow ledge with a dizzying drop on either side | Complete, utter trust that he wouldn’t let me fall . . ·  The kindest friends, who walked with me | Conversations with the voice in my head, realising I had to make myself walk . . ·  Feeling humbled by the frailty of my body | Feeling proud of my legs that took me where I wanted to go, my shoulders that carried my load . . ·  A longing to 'sound my barbaric yawp’, to leave a mark, to say ‘I was here’, in the face of all this eternity | A longing that this beauty would have no trace of me so that another may see what I witnessed, grateful that the Mountains were kind and gave me a glimpse . . . Dayara Bugyal, Garhwal Himalayas, Uttarakhand, March 2018 at Dayara Bugyal

Matching (5/5) . . Apart from the delight of documenting the co-ordinated shirt & pomegranates, this sight also made me want to start making a humble attempt at Steve McCurry's project of observing people reading. If there's one thing you Google today, make it "Steve McCurry reading", to see pictures that are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. . . . (52/365) at Pune, Maharashtra

(47/365) I know, I know, the caption 'Highway Star' doesn't really go with this daytime picture of a grey-haired gentleman, a bird that is grand but not known for speed, and a passenger who is far from a daredevil. But there was something about that fresh, breezy morning and empty road, that made the grey-haired gentleman transform into an F1 racer at the turn of the ignition, that made the peacock fly like the wind, and made me feel like I was the star in that Deep Purple song. . . . --- . . I wonder who decorates these rickshaw and taxi ceilings. at Bangalore, India
