Nirvana, is the spiritual goal of Buddhism. My favorite among the last year’s photos, taken during the Sikkim Tour at the Institute of Tibetology in Gangtok. We reached there early in the morning before the morning prayers began, I saw this monk going to the prayer room and was ready to capture the moment. But much later, did I understand the so many levels of undertones the picture contained. I believe in many ways, in spite of all our involvement, it is some form of creative energy that makes art perfect. Some genius artist working in His own mysterious ways. Here, this was my tryst with Him. Heres to His creativity!
A boatman near the banks of River Hoogly near Howrah Bridge, Kolkata. Photographed at sunset, these men still make their livelihood from the river, while luxury cars speed through the bridges overhead. Quite a contrast, India is a land of paradoxes.
You have been here before, when and how, I cannot tell.
