Holi Hai

The festival of colors Holi is one of the major festivals of India, Holi is celebrated with enthusiasm and gaiety on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun which is the month of March as per the Gregorian calendar.Holi frolic and celebrations begin the morning after Holika bonfire (Days before the festival people start gathering wood and combustible materials for the bonfire in parks, community centers, near temples and other open spaces. On top of the pyre is an effigy to signify Holika who tricked Prahalad into the fire.). There is no tradition of holding puja (prayer), and the day is for partying and pure enjoyment. Children and youth form groups  armed with dry colours, coloured solution & means to fill and spray others with coloured solution (known as pichkaris), balloons that can hold coloured water, and other creative means are also used to colour the targets. The event has now become an almost international event and is celebrated by people (Indians or not) around the world.

Homeopathic Medicine Bottles

Homeopathy is an alternate medicine technique almost 2 centuries old. Samuel Hahnemann seems to be the daddy dear of Homeopathy.Its estimated that almost 50 million people are treated with homeopathy every year..Its effectiveness is debated..Believers say it treats even major tumors without any side effects while misbelievers say something what doesnt have effect will also not have side effects…Whatever may be true, i personally have found great relief for minor cough cold with Homeopathic treatment ..

Orange Dusk

A pretty old picture clicked by me…It wasnt even as dark as it appears. But when u set the aperture at around f/22, many magical wonders happen..

This brings us to the question ‘What is Real ?’.. Everything we see is regulated by our sensory ability to perceive & process available light..What about a colorblind person? Does what he see is real? or is what we see real? Maybe we will never be able to answer..Its like saying  ‘Oh Look that planet doesnt have Oxygen so there will be no life in it’ .. Its solely judged by our understanding that life happens only in presence of oxygen… What if there are organisms in other planets that live on methane ? and oxygen is poisonous for them? I guess we can never answer…

At this point i rightly remember a great saying by Aesop – One cannot look beyond his nose..

Please check out another picture which uses f/22.. Its used as a wall hanging by a local Church Father..
