Mumbai Through My Eyes…

Photography

Being a global citizen that believes in creating an impact through a social change, there comes a greater responsibility of understanding a system that fails to deliver. It’s been over four months since I stepped foot in Mumbai, and being in the city that belongs close to my heart has given me the chance to express myself as a local Mumbaikar, about some of the social and moral issues that provoke and concern me on a personal level. Firstly, let me just say, like any other big cosmopolitan city, Mumbai comes with a disclaimer which I would interpret as- ‘If you are willing to…

An afternoon at Swayumbhunath , Nepal

Travel

 We headed towards Swayumbhunath temple on a bright warm sunny May afternoon. Situated on the hilltop at western side of Kathmandu it’s around half an hour journey from Kamalpokhri the central part of Kathmandu. Although one can take various approaches towards the shrine, either the gradual rise or the young and energetic ones may contemplate trying out the steep stairway at the eastern end of the hill. Commonly known as Monkey temple as its infested with monkeys, this place is an ideal coexistence of Hinduism and Buddhism. The entrance is free for Nepali residents, however Indians are charged a nominal…

Kratie, along the banks of Mekong river

Travel

My bus to Kampong Cham, which supposed to be super-fast VIP one, was scheduled at 6 in the morning from Siem Reap and pick was to be at 5.30. Getting up at 5, when the whole hotel was still sleeping, I entered the lobby to wait for my pick up. The whole hotel staffs were snoring loudly and I decided to wait outside instead. The morning was a little hazy, but still quite warm. The mosquitoes kept zooming around my ear trying to irritate my already sleepy mind further. The pick-up van arrived, insides of which were modified to allow…

Crossing the border into Laos, first stop: Vientiane

Travel

Our long bus journey started in Hanoi, in a sleeper bus of ok quality. I had no idea how long it would take and hence I decided to kill the time by sleeping as much as I could. Next day, early morning at around 5, our bus took a long halt. Getting up to see what was going on, I saw a number of buses and trucks on a muddy track, surrounded by green mountains and ever-present mist. Finally, our driver announced that it was the border crossing checkpoint! We got down of the bus, passports in hands, looking for…

“Eagles come in all shapes and sizes, but you will recognize them chiefly by their attitudes.” This quote by notable economist E. F.
