It is a pleasure to see such greenery in this city.

Cutie Pie

This is the little finger puppet that is the only "decorative" object that resides in our car. Unlike many cars I cross everyday that seem like mobile stuffed toy stores!

INA Market

This is one of the markets in Delhi that is very famous. You get the most exotic vegetables, fruits, cheeses, herbs and meats, not to mention fancy hard-to-find ingredients. The one stop destination for just about everything you're likely to need for your kitchen: INA Market. Looks can be so deceptive!

Everytime I pass these structures at the flyover near the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), I wonder what they're meant for. They remind me of giant metal balloons. One RJ on an FM channel said the aliens had planted them there after landing on earth. I can't help but laugh when I remember that!

The Ring Road in New Delhi getting ready for the Commonwealth Games 2010! This is at Dhaula Kuan and is part of the CWG 2010 Streetscaping project.

Furniture Shopping

We went looking for furniture at the famous Kirti Nagar Market in West Delhi. As always, this caught my eye and I burst out laughing. This store was closed and many passers by wondered what I was trying to capture!

Dinning Anyone?

I wonder what they were thinking. With all that sound equipment they were carrying up, maybe they did intend creating a "dinning" experience for guests.

Valentine's Day

This was the spread that I was welcomed to after spending an entire week at my parents'. Thanks S! (Had I caught an earlier flight, this would have been a Feb 14th picture. But it was past midnight when we sat down to dinner!)

Everyday Art

I'm amazed at the murals that I saw all over Bangalore. Everytime I drove past one of these, I wanted to take a picture. I didn't go out much in Madras, or I would have captured some of those there too. These works of art just make the ride that much more enjoyable.

Craze for Cars

The car bug seems to catch boys very young. My friend's 3 year old checking out the all new Manza at a showroom in Bangalore.

Coffee, Conversations and More

There's a certain comfort in meeting old friends and having conversations over cups of coffee... this is the stuff memories are made of. The Transit Lounge, Forum Mall, Koramangala, Bangalore.

Commercial Street, Bangalore on a weekday afternoon.

I love looking at construction sites, trying to picture how this WIP will ever look like the model they portray. But they always do. Well, almost always.

The Elixir of Life

The authorities are never going to take their own messages about water conservation seriously. A water lorry in Chennai spilling water all over the road.

Pondy Bazaar

The pavement outside Rathna Stores in Pondy Bazaar, T. Nagar, Chennai.

I hope this book will keep me company on a long flight tomorrow!

Spelling Bee

I couldn't help but stop and take this picture! (Needless to say, I couldn't control my laughter.)

International Relations

I wonder what dear Leo would do if he had as much as an inkling!

Choo Choo Train

The pride of Delhi. The Metro pulling out of a station.

Traffic Signal

You can find just about everything at signals these days. These colourful balloons captured my attention.
