Motion Blur

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge “Motion“:


I took this shot using a Canon dslr camera (1100D).

I love this picture because it was my first attempt at clicking a night photo that captured motion blur, and I think it turned out well 🙂

Enjoy the photo! 😀

Living the Supernatural


“Carry on my wayward son.. There’ll be peace when you are done..”

These Kansas lyrics, made wildly popular by the hit American television series Supernatural, are instantly recognized by viewers. (Check out the full Kansas song with lyrics here!)

This is how it all began.

Spanning across the genres of horror, suspense and action, Supernatural revolves around the lives of brothers Sam (actor Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (actor Jensen Ackles). Writer and creator, Erik Kripke spent over ten years developing the concept of the series, having long been interested in urban legends. Supernatural was first broadcast in September 2006, and is currently in its tenth season. The show will be back for an eleventh season!

Sam and Dean Winchester

Sam and Dean Winchester’s lives are an endless road trip – it starts when they set off to look for their father who is out to avenge their mother’s killer, the yellow-eyed demon Azazel. With help from the expert Bobby Singer (actor Jim Beaver), angel Castiel (actor Misha Collins), and occasionally from Crowley (actor Mark Sheppard), the King of Hell, Sam and Dean are out to avenge their parents and sanitize the earth of any evil force they chance upon. They soon realize that it is each other that they must save.

The plot is packed with paranormal elements and creatures such as wendigos, wraiths, shritgas, shape shifters and demons. These monsters have been drawn from mythology, urban legends and even children’s stories. There is also a biblical narrative that comes to the foreground as the seasons progress.

Classic rock music such as that of Kansas, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC has been generously used to flesh out Dean’s strong but anguished character. Supernatural can in fact be credited with reviving classic rock!

Check out this hilarious spoof by Jensen Ackles, aka, Dean Winchester!

Supernatural has made global impact, winning a number of awards and high viewer ratings. Fans get the opportunity to interact with the cast in conventions organized across the world. With a dedicated fan following of over 3 million, the idea of a spinoff series has been eagerly welcomed.

Mumbai: The City of Lights!

Hello dear readers! 🙂

There was a time when I had completely stopped posting on my blog. That was last year when I was trying to make sense of my world and take control of my life. Then in June 2014, Mumbai happened to me! No, it’s not an illness, but rather a fever! 😉

Mumbai is the finance and entertainment capital of India. I had been accepted at one of most prestigious institutions in the country, Xavier Institute of Communications (XIC). I was going to study mass communication!

But I come from New Delhi and the idea of moving to Mumbai was ridiculous to me! But after eight months of being here, I’m quite the convert!

More than anything, I love how a large chunk of the population prefers using the public transport, despite owning personal vehicles. That definitely helps reduce the traffic that clogs the city, and also keeps pollution in check! It really amazes me that this city even has a mobile app guide! This app, M-indicator (Check it out here on Google Play!) gives you all possible information about the city – from local train timings to metro, ferry fares and schedules to movie show timings and even job offers! It now has a safety feature for emergencies also! The local trains are the lifelines of this city!

I never thought I could manage travelling in these dangerously overcrowded trains till I HAD to step into one, simply cuz there was no other option. If you want to be on schedule, trains are the best! You may have to stand throughout your journey in sweltering, overcrowded conditions but you beat the traffic by a huge margin! I soon learned that the happiness of being able to rest even half your butt on the ‘fourth seat’ (little space created by three people squeezing in, for a fourth person on a three-seater) in a crowded local is unmatched! I was so surprised to see trinkets being sold in these trains – from earrings and makeup, to magazines, to snacks and even vegetables!

I have found Mumbaikars to be very helpful and down-to-earth. I have witnessed and received generosity on many occasions, and I’ll share one incident. Now, it is fairly common to see people clamouring for seats and make deals with anyone getting off before you do. In one such crowded local, I stood silently, wearing my heavy backpack and a young woman offered me her seat as she prepared to deboard. Such unexpected kindness was really heart warming!

Mumbai is the city that never sleeps! I will vouch that it is alive at all times, and autos (ricks) and cabs are easily available till late into the night. The drivers don’t fuss much and take you to your destination. Here, I also found that people interact more. People do own smartphones and such gadgets but human interaction is still very alive!

There is so much culture to explore and soak up. The British architecture, Parsi bakeries and quirky cafes have won me over! And most of these restaurants have very humble servers. They are polite and often go out of their way to ensure that you have a good dining experience. Street food is also pretty amazing here and it’s quite hygienic and reasonably priced. The go-to option is vada pav (a burger with a flavoursome potato patty) of which I’m a big fan!

Last but surely not the least, the Arabian Sea is a vital part of Mumbai. What came as a pleasant surprise to me was the fact that the well-known Marine Drive is just a walking distance from college!

More than eight months ago, while confirming my admission to XIC, I didn’t tell my parents that I would have class till 8.30pm or so. It was obvious that my parents would freak out and dissuade me from joining XIC, seeing that Delhi is not very safe at night. I didn’t tell them until two months into the course – but my regular reports of how safe and friendly the city is, helped me ease them into it 🙂

Eight months ago, I had landed in Mumbai, having promised myself that I would go back to Delhi as soon as these ten months ended. I was just not prepared to fall for this city. I was stubborn. But now, I’m reasonably unsure if I want to leave Mumbai.

The Rule of Thirds

I took this shot using an 1100D Canon DSLR. Shot in monochrome mode, this picture hasn’t been retouched 🙂

And oh, this guy was easily 4-5 inches across. Quite obvious why I didn’t go closer and zoomed in instead! :’D
