Diwali, the festival of lights. During the festival, the entire city is adorned with sparkling lamps, colouful lanterns(kandils) & rice lights(torans). The atmosphere is of utmost happiness as the festival marks the triump of goodness. I hit the streets to capture all the energy & passion of this festival & here is my take on the ‘Festival of Lights’. Hope you enjoy & get soaked in the festive spirit. Cheers! :)

I renewed my subscription of Better Photography(BP) magazine yesterday & the BP team member instantly handed me the copy of this month. I placed the copy in my bag & went through my day. In evening as I was waiting for my turn at the dentist, I pulled out the magazine & began flipping. To my uttermost surprise, it had a picture from me in the critique section of the magazine.
This picture was taken by me in
2009 2011 with my compact camera Canon Powershot SX100 IS. I had mailed it to BP somewhere in 2010 May 2011 & it got published in October 2013. It bought a good long smile across my lips. As they say, “better late than never”. If you’ve bought the magazine this month, do check out page no.102 for my photograph in full glory.

Here, I’ll show you how you can install the Cisco Packet Tracer under your linux system. I would be installing it on Fedora 18.

I went all over the city to bring you the finest of the Ganesh idols. Here is my coverage of Ganesh Utsav 2013 right from the first day all the way till Visarjan. Most of the footage is shot hand-held except for a few shots. The footage was edited in OpenShot Video Editor which is a breeze to work with. The sound-track used is “Mourya Re” from the bollywood film Don. Enjoy the video. :-)
