This week, Cee’s black and white challenge topic is Long Items. Let’s see what I can come up with 😀
I shall start, but of course, with a tree – a really tall one. On the streets of Delhi, caught through a car while stuck in a jam. Some things are good about a traffic jam too!
The long way home – err not mine though!
A sneak preview of a bit of ancient sculptures that dot the country
A glimpse into one of the many dances of India. There was one with a bicycle wheel on his head as well. No mean feat eh!
This is the holy Bhagirathi, the tempestuous, feisty Himalayan river who, according to legend, was brought to earth by King Bhagiratha and hence also called Bhagirathi or Bhagiratha’s daughter. If you are interested in the legend, watch this (very short) video.
This is the mighty Ganga, one of the longest rivers in India and worshipped as goddess Ganga. She is formed by the confluence of Bhagirathi and the Alaknanda at Devprayag. The view of the confluence is mesmerising but that is another picture for another post 🙂
I will wrap up this post with this really ‘long’ tree standing tall in the midst of a moonlight night.
When I started this challenge, I thought I wouldn’t have any photos and now I have too many!
Hope you enjoyed these photos, do let me know your favourite. If any.
Hello everyone! This week, Terri’s Sunday Still prompt is #Mysterious. So let’s see what I can come up this week.
That’s it from me this week. Stay safe and be careful. My heart goes out to all the families who lost their loved ones in the horrific Halloween stampede in Seoul and my prayers for all those who are grievously injured, may they recover soon.
This post is in response to Terri’s Sunday Stills photo challenge. This week’s theme is glass. And since I see the best scenes through the glass while travelling I jumped at the chance to share a few unedited raw pictures.
“It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision.” – Helen Keller
“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” – John Lubbock
“When life gets blurry, adjust your focus.” From the internet
Life had got blurry and came back here to find focus. Although officially it says I have been blogging for 7 years, I have been mostly absconding for the past 2 years. Hopefully I will be more regular now.
At least that’s the plan.
Yet, just like I didnt plan to start (or restart) blogging, life is what happens while we make plans 🙂
Here’s to waiting and watching for what life has in store for you, me and the rest of the world…

Short on inspiration and high on distancing dare I believe we are still together 😛
Ergo – let us all go ego-less 😀
Too much gyan kya? Let’s see what I else I can find…
Did you do that? Not me – I was a very good girl!
Not me… at least not then. But have been in similar situations while going into the boss’ room 😀
Yes! I will admit to this – you?
I have to confess, the cat is cuter! Moving on
Flexibility is key to survival.
Hmm I hope he didnt really die for then she would have had the last laugh – just kidding 😀
What’s your excuse? Mine is that it’s all those sweets I have been just drooling about 😉
So how many you identify with Aunty Acid? Oh that reminds of a joke where this guy was moaning to his friend, “I dont think my wife is ever going to die. She has nothing but clothes, she wouldnt be caught dead in.”
That’s all folks – have a great week and as usual none of this brilliant stuff is mine, I am just trying to keep the laughter going 🙂

Helloooo! How’s the New Year been treating you people? Stressful and worrying times for sure. And the fictional world is my go to place for escape. So here I am with a short story (< 4000 words) written for Amazon’s ebook contest, pentopublish4.
The scene is of the Hastinapur’s royal court, where the Pandavas have lost everything in the infamous game of dice. Draupadi has been dragged into court, deshabille by her hair, to be humiliated and molested in full public view with the tacit consent of the venerated leaders of the Kuru clan. What if Draupadi took matters into her own hands and redirected the course of the timeless classic, the Mahabharata?
If you would like to know, please visit the Amazon Kindle store of your region, where Draupadi’s Shame: The Mahabharata Reimaginedis available as an eBook only. I have scheduled the eBook to be available for free download for the 28th of February 2021. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to download it and also read it! Perhaps also do your good deed of the day (and make my day!) by leaving a rating and a line or two conveying your thoughts and emotions on the story. Reader ratings and comments also contribute to the selection process.
