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! :)

In Better Photography October 2013

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.

BP Oct 13

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.

The sound-track used is “Mourya Re” from the bollywood film Don. Enjoy the video. :-)

Taking it to service centre was not an issue as I was assured of free repairs as the lens was under warranty. However I was worried in what condition will the lens be returned after the repairs. In India, most of the customer care are not really great. The consumer products are often manhandled & are kept in the custody gathering dust without being actually serviced right away.
