Initially i started this blog as a photoblog depicting pictures from all my travels. But lately i've realized that i need to share some of my travel experiences too. So here it goes.. celebrating Life and its wonderful experiences.

The preparation

28th Feb 2011, New Delhi

As said earlier it has been a very hectic start to the year… and after almost a month I got some time to look at my blog… Hope to be here very frequently..
A lot of stuff to update – an experience through my lenses!
It was a big occasion (yeah I got married) and I tried my best to keep my lenses beside me  to capture some moments… will try to share as many pictures as possible…
For last few days I was just thinking of one single picture to kick start my updates (After a long gap) and after giving a lot of thought I choose this picture… 

....during the week long ceremony I realized that every customs in Hindu culture is make us aware of the importance of  the five elements - how life is dependent on them and how they make a complete cycle of life?
This picture depicts how we as human still worship the earth in different form… The diyas and pot, made of clay, are integral part of all Hindu worship and festivals too (Diwali). The first prayer goes to the lord in the form fire using different form of diyas while a pot is used for various depictions (To be described in a later post)

P.S: Diyas/pots are kept is water overnight so that the clay can observe as much water (Till saturation). This makes sure that the diyas does not observe oil while lighting up and thus last longer.
