This has been a mixed kind of week, with very heavy rain, occasional cloudy days and an everyday all-pervading gloomy sky that seemed to spread out all across the horizon. Continue reading
The glow on the boundless depth of the open sky. Once upon a time in Bangalore. 2017
Here’s wishing everyone an easy, chilled out weekend!
Today for #SkywatchFriday, I bring you three different skies portraying three varying moods of Nature. On a beautiful sunny day, Nature can be so mellow and calm, and yet, so portent with foreboding in the face of a storm. Which of the three appeals to you? I’d love to know your reasons too.

Somebody once asked me, What do you like most about traveling?
I didn’t have an answer then But I do now. I think travel pushes me beyond my comfort zone and makes me look at myself with new eyes. Continue reading
With raging floods everywhere in the Eastern and Northern parts of the country, I’m only hoping and wishing that things come to normalise soon and that the those affected may find the strength to get on with their lives after the spate subsides. Continue reading
Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth—You owe me. Look what happens with a love like that—It lights up the sky!
Today, I bring you these shots from a few weeks back, when we still had the occasional bursts of red and orange streaks spread all across, at dawn and dusk. That was much before the sky decided to wrap itself in a bleary grey cloak, with the onset of Monsoon, bringing the much-needed showers and a dip in the soaring temperatures. Sad to say, that Bangalore skies were never this dull, as they are right now. When I’m at home, I love sky watching in the wee hours of the morning and feel lucky if I catch a sunset, while wrapping up the chores, in the evening. These days, the luminescence of the flaming sky is being sorely missed. Sharing some shots that bring back fond memories for me. Hope you like them.
So, how have you been and how was your sky this week? If you love taking sky shots, do share them by clicking the link below. You may also visit the link to see the beautiful sky photos people post from all over the world.
I’m sure you had a busy week. But, tell me, when you had some time to spare, did you spend it staring into your gadgets, or did you raise your head, to look out of that window? Did you realise how time flies and how days turn into nights and the weeks roll into months? We don’t often realise that spending mindful moments amidst nature every now and then can be a huge stress-buster. Do take some moments to stop…pause…watch…and see how much beauty there is for us, without our asking. When you do, I hope you enjoy them. Life, they say, happens in these everyday moments, while we’re busy chasing other things.

I’m participating in the #BarAThon – a blogging Challenge which involves blogging on alternate days from Jun 17 – Jun 30, 2017. There is one common theme running across all the days, which is ‘Seven‘ and specific prompts for each of the blogging days, based on the titles of books.
Today, I have chosen to go with the theme- Seven memorable skywatching moments. Continue reading
“Waiting for Rain.”
A snapshot of grey skies looming overhead on a sultry summer afternoon and I am somehow reminded of how each one of is waiting for that elusive something to come and transform our lives -that quintessence of positivity, that makes us hope against the impossible at times, a bit like these parched leaves waiting for rain. While it pours and floods elsewhere, we are going through a severely dry patch in some areas of the city, particularly in the area where I live. We are all waiting for the rain.
This shot encapsulates that plea!
