This image is a perfect example of how a particular landscape can remind you instantly of a set up of a movie. I am sure it does, well this is not Punjab & this is not even one of the film sets staged at the famous Yash Raj studios. This is my village in Gujarat where such a location is present. Only if Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge was shot here, more tourist could have been attracted & even more revenue could have been generated. Love this image for it's vastness, colors & the immense fragrance those crops use to spread. A perfect tribute to Bollywood's most celebrated romantic movie DDLJ

The Perfect Marine Drive

Amazed. I was, looking at this pic for once I thought I can click pictures too, an amateur at the profession taken from my Samsung Ace. So love the pic not only for the way it has come out but also for the editing done on it. Let me tell you, this image did not have any rains in it initally, neither the sky was so romantic purple in color but I am glad the image came out just the way I wanted it. No matter how many times I have been to Marine Drive, it always keeps telling me there can be a better view of this place, there can be a more perfect image of this place. Till date this has been the best for me. Hope you think the same too. The best of this place is yet to come btw.

The Snorkelling Place

It's blue, it's beautiful, it's peaceful & it's a dream destination to be at. Langkawi's Peluar beach which is famous for it's Snorkeling adventures is for sure a place to be when in Malaysia. The place is so clean & beautifully carved by the Gods that it make you stunned at the first moment you see it. The experience of playing with fishes, sharks & several other marine life is just not explainable. The place has a complete different charm to it, one which cannot be explained but just felt. This landscape is just a glimpse of it. A place like this makes you say "Malaysia - Truly Asia"

My Best Pic at Langkawi

I so love this pic taken by me at Langkawi. What I like about it is, that it's not the photograph that has come out nice but the place itself was so beautiful that it made it perfect. More then an image it looks like a painting. One I always use to imagine during my school days when the teacher would say "paint a landscape students". The drawing of school days finally got completed after this very pic. Langkawi has some breathtaking landscapes & scenery but this one is by far the best among all. One also realizes that the famous action scene of the movie DON involving the Bollywood Badshah "Shahrukh Khan" & Boman Irani was shot here.

Welcome to Langkawi

Some things are not bought they just come to you. When we left from India for Langkawi we were expecting out hotel to be simple & without any luxuries. However this image is exactly a perfect description of how the place welcomed us. The hotel Bella Vista faced the beautiful Indian Ocean & a breath taking scenery around. One could keep glaring at it all day. Loved this place.

Many moods of Marine Drive

This place is unique & must have been witness of several stories of human beings who would have fought, loved, expressed, cried, smiled, sung & would have spent a time which one cannot forget. Marine Drive in Mumbai is one such place which you just cannot miss as every time you go there it has something different to offer you. The waves, sky, sun & peace provided is ample here. Keeping the various moods of this place decided to upload all these pics together. Many more pics of this place yet to come

Pink Leaves Lane

A long stretch with a shade on top of you. A shade created by the intersecting branches & leaves of trees places opposite each other. Beautiful & lonely that lane was, once you walk from there you feel as if you are special & out in a different world. This thought struck me, took the picture of the lane exactly they way I imagined & gave the leaves a pink shade. A place as such may not exist really but for my imagination it defiantly does. Imagination, may be such a place does exist, have not seen all hence.

The National Bird

Caged is it's beauty, it's freedom & yet it gives you a pleasant sight. Peacock may be the national bird of India many of them are caged these days for allowing visitors to view. This one was beautiful, had a brilliant appeal & made you think of how pleasing it would be to see it out in the open. The moment I went near to it to click a photograph it poked it's beak suggesting as if try & get me out. Most beautiful bird yet not preserved rightfully.

Water Channel

Not sure what you call such a collection present around in the resort but it made a great sight & one could find such water channels every where in Aayus resort. One thing it made me do was take a picture as soon as I saw it. Must say was impressed with the way the motion of the wheel has come out very well even in the image.

Lord Krishna's Palace

Huge, brilliant & golden that's what you see once you enter the resort. A huge palace made as if it belonged to the Lord Krishna era. The detail involved in it, the way the colors are given & the sun shining on it made it a perfect dream palace. It was just not possible to cover this all in one image. Hence tried to cover the most & do note this is an original image without any filters or edits. It's one of the most liked images on my Instagram uploads.

Lord Krishna - The Master Mind

Weekend & as planned we friends decided to go to Aayush Resort near Panvel. Though I had been there before but I could hardly recollect anything about the place. As soon as you enter the place you are welcomed by this brilliant & epic statue of Lord Krishna & his horses from Mahabharata. Such was the power of the image that I wanted to cover it all in one click. Lord Krishna is considered a master mind of Mahabharata & this scene is considered to be a photo cover of the entire battle. Love the way the carvings are seen in this image.

Cricket can be beautiful too

So one fine day as always we friends were playing cricket on Venus ground. The match became too one sided in our favor to even raise any sorts of interest. Fielding neat the dressing room I decided to make the most of the time I use to get with the ball not coming in my side. I asked one of my friends to pass my phone from my bag & took a quick click while fielding for the Instagram collection. Must say I love this pic for the quickness involved & for the clouds that kept staring our game of play.

Marine Drive - Be the way you are

Whether it is morning or evening this place has some magic in it, it just lifts you up. Gives you that perfect smell which you want to take back home. Gives you that perfect image that you want to remember & gives you the perfect inspiration to keep moving on. I feel this pic describes each & every aspect of it. Just love the way how the sky has begun to stretch it's arm & given a perfect feel to the evening. Though I have not seen the very old "Bombay" but I strongly feel this is what it must have been. Calm, composed, relaxed & providing everyone an opportunity to dream. What do you say?

Juhu Beach

When one is in Mumbai for a trip, he is always suggested to go to the place called Juhu beach. Not only for the location one is asked to but also because of the various celebrity homes present around this area. So being a Mumbaikar myself it was long I had not visited this place. So as again one find day during office hours we decided to go to Juhu beach & chill. Sitting there I could see how people are enjoying the sea even in enormous sun without the fear of a stroke. May be they were still feeling it was a pleasant day & hence I tried my best to convert a sunny looking beach into a beautiful evening with the help of Instagram filters.

The Instagram Race

This picture is a result of my urge to get a pic up on Instagram featuring my bike Bajaj Pulsar. I wanted to take one while riding & this is the closest possible I could get to try & include my bike in it. The hint of hand that is seen in the pic is mine while on the rider's sit. Yes it is dangerous but the road that I clicked this picture is always empty, hence eliminating the risk to some extent. Not the best of pics but the effort involved & the speed at which I wanted to click it, it deserved an upload. Vrooooommm.

Love for the Sea continues

It's one thing in Mumbai which has not changed & never will. It's mood keeps changing with everyday that's it. Just like me even my friend has this fascination towards sea. So one Sunday after giving our prayers to God, we decided to explore the moods of sea at Marine Drive. That's when I captured this image & gave it a filtered look. Sea, something which keeps inspiring you.

Beat the Heat

Summer's in Mumbai can be really bad & can beat even the best. But just like every other city even Mumbai has it's own way to Beat the killing Heat. "Golas" they are called, crushed ice with flavored syrup on top with various varieties. So one find day just to beat this heat we office colleagues decided to go to Juhu for one of these rounds of Gola. Gola, beach, sea & perfect breeze to complete it. Try it out next time you go to Juhu.

That one for Friendship

I had been for a holiday to Malaysia in Oct 2011 with 3 of my other friends. Months passed by but we could never stop discussing the trip. So one fine day we decided to gather at a place & rewind our memories of the beautiful & adventurous trip. This one is for the bautiful journey & to friendship. Malaysia Truly Asia

Notorious Jiya

She is my neighbor's kid but is more often spending time at our house for the very fact not a single person shouts at her & is pampered the most. She is mischievous, notorious & yet super sweet. So if pics were to be taken she had to be an essential part of Instagram collection, since most of my phone pics are also loaded by her poses.

Love for the Sea

It's one of the most posh areas of Mumbai with several Bollywood celebs residing here, yet the sea does not differentiates & gives an equal opportunity to stare at it. Love this pic for the timing when I clicked as there was not a single person around except my friend & me. It felt as if the sea for a while belonged to us & the waves kept inviting us to jump. An early morning outing which made the rest of the Sunday Perfect. Carter Road - Bandra every college going kid must have at least been here once in his days.

3593 Captures

You may wonder on reading the title, it means the pic has been captured while riding my bike which is numbered 3593. A Bajaj Pulsar & I am proud of it, has been a beautiful ride till now. Back to the story behind the image, this was taken while returning home from office. I usually like to take the back road behind the Inorbit mall, it's a long road but is empty & helps me avoid signals. Plus I can speed in too. Love the way Sun shines in this image & the sky has become tired. Love this pic for the instant manner I clicked so that it can be uploaded on Instagram.

Versova Beach

When the Boss is out we take over, that's what we did one day. All by ourselves in office, we just decided to bunk few hours of office, go to a beach nearby, "The Versova Beach" & relax. Relax not exactly we ended up sweating because of the humidity & heat but managed to take this pic for my Instagram collection. We also managed some nice individual profile pics. The beach is clean & empty, am sure it would be a great sight in evenings & on a less sunny day.

Sachin's 100th Century

GOD! Literally he is in India. For every time even if he sneezes it becomes a big news. So how would we Indians avoid this. Sachin Tendulkar was stuck on 99 career centuries for a long time, entire India wanted him to reach the 100th mark. Even Coca Cola decided to honor this achievement by a century can. What I like most about this pic is the color Gold. Perfect to describe an achievement as huge as this. Long Live the Master Blaster - Sachin Tendulkar. Till date it is the only Sachin's coca cola can pic on Instagram.

Office Office 2

Yawn! Literally I was when I decided to collect things present on my desk & click this particular image. There is no other story besides this about this image. Yet love this pic & would love to show it to my photography professor who use to use various lenses, shades, lights & of-course models to click what he called "The" pic. Intagram has reduced all that to just one click & a "Nashville" filter.

Office Office

Working Saturdays, new to the Instagram app & an urge to click an image to share is what this pic is all about. "Lucky" Bamboo sticks given as Christmas gift, glares which I use while riding my bike & my Samsung Ace to click it - a combination of 3 products got this. Must say Instagram makes the most ordinary pictures look professional. That Bamboo sticks have grown now, does it indicate luck? I hope it does.

Marry Go Around

One find day after a dance practice session for my friends wedding, we friends decided to go & relive our childhood. This fair "Mela" as called locally was being held near Girgaun Chowpatty. Just love this pics for the colors it shows & the way it depicts the colors of Google also. This image had been in my phone ever since, Instagram gave me an exact platform to display it. So Marry Go Around & have fun.

Subrato Roy Sahara Stadium

Considering I am a huge cricket fan this was the first image I uploaded on Instagram & must say it has been one of the most liked images till date. Love the way the image depicts the Indian colours in it. The stadium hosts cricket matches & belongs to the famous Sahara group headed by Subrato Roy. Stadium is located on the outskirts of the peaceful city of Pune & gives a spectacular view while seated amongst the crowd. Probably one of the most beautiful stadium India has. This image was taken during the first match hosted & stadium being inaugurated.
