Through the window

Eiffel Tower- Through the window

My first glimpse of Eiffel tower was through the glass window. We were on the way to the Seine River Cruise. Dusk had set in; small clouds flitted through the sky. The evening shadows played with the glass to give a surreal look. This was how I saw the Eiffel tower the first time. Can you wonder that I was enthralled?

Strokkur Geyser, Iceland

The word geyser is derived from the Great Geysir. However, Geysir is very unreliable these days. Strokkur, on the other hand, with its reliable eruption cycle has become a more popular tourist destination. Strokkur is a fountain geyser located in the geothermal field in the Haukadalur valley in Iceland. Nearby are located many smaller geysers (as well as the Geysir).

Strokkur was supposedly set off during an earthquake in 1789. It is a very energetic geyser, the water sprouting around 10-20m high. At any time of the day, you can see rings of tourists, cameras in hand, waiting for the geyser to erupt. And Strokkur doesn’t disappoint; it erupts every 8-10 minutes sending fumes of sulphur your way if you stand in the direction of the wind.

Wordless wonder

Sometimes, the scene before you is so beautiful, that words are useless, the camera fails to capture the true essence, and you’re left stunned.

The Earth

Where the trees, mountains, and the sky are in harmony
Greens
Where the animals can live in peace 
Lieder
Where the rivers can stay pure
Flower
Where the flowers still laugh

This is what makes the earth…Hope we bring back peace and harmony on our planet.

All the above pictures are taken in various parts of Kashmir. Sadly, Kashmir is going through a very difficult time. But, the time will pass. Even though terror might seem powerful, its hold is momentary; love, on the other hand, reigns forever.

Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous – to poetry.

The changing walls of Thane

Wall-e-art

The dull walls of Thane have become vibrant, and lively. The new TMC initiative “Paint walls, beautify city” has brought together artists to paint murals depicting nature, history, and culture on the walls of the city. The beautiful murals around the city walls have added a much-needed artistic touch to the bland concrete jungle. Continue reading The changing walls of Thane
