Cowbird!

Always use to wonder where my pieces of photos would fit in the larger puzzle of life or would it just remain as self expression. But finally there came Cowbird and its saga of Occupy where some of my tiny observations seemed fitting. It needs writing ~ while I lost most of my writing skills…

#occupywallstreet

Sept 17, 2011 — On the very first day of Occupy Wall Street, standing with not less than a five hundred large crowd, quiet unaware of where it’s all heading to. There were no leaders, people gathered in groups and talked their mind. There were all kinds of things from corporate greed to public transport…

Mollywood on walls and shutters

Well, this is not a pressing issue in any case, but a curious look at the changing visual landscape of Kerala, discovered over a year of mundane travel across some districts. As our favourite stars Mammootty and Mohanlal migrated to brand ambassadorships of Kalyan and Malabar groups, more girls have started climbing the hoardings of…

Music under NY

Traditional Chinese instrument ‘Erhu’ being played. An accidental find of the same person from 2001. A lone musician on his Trombone.. Michael Schulman of Black violin, who plays a very interesting electric violin.. The duo Tuba players.. At a deal of one dollar, she accepted my photography offer.. and a Mouth organ player…

Music under NY!

The best thing happened to NYC perhaps is its musicians! Some are known, many are unknown..they sing in the bright and dark corners of subway stations, while trains and crowd bustle about. Genres surprisingly range from Blues to Bhajan, Classical to Techno! Whichever, they make you smile, they make you stop, they make you sway,…
