Happy Lohri….

Fire has always fascinated humans… and in India it is worshipped in many ways. On Lohri , which is mainly celebrated in Punjab, offerings are made to the bonfire and this day marks the end of the winter and ushers in longer and warmer days… The above photos are of the bonfire we had outside our house in Delhi.

Winter waterfowl waddling…..

_MG_9141-001

A pleasant and serene afternoon watching waddling ducks at Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary. This Bird Sanctuary is a wetland situated about 50 kms from Delhi. Its a beautiful place to go for watching wetland migratory birds, especially after September. Lots of migratory birds come here to breed and its a great place to visit for photography, bird watching, or even for a picnic…..

Happy Mothers Day….

Sitting in Singapore, contemplating the distant horizon, our little baby was a two month fetus… and even then you had that glow of motherhood on your face…. today your Son and I wish you a Happy Mothers Day…. for putting up with us 😄

Mittens Ahoy….

It was a hot summer day, people were sweating buckets and here I was with cold hands and a rapidly beating heart….. waiting for the word from within..

The day started as any other, with a hurried rush to get to work and my heavily pregnant wife busy as well. At office I get the call telling me, that the doctor would like to see us posthaste… Delhi’s traffic notwithstanding we reached the doctor in record time and were informed that our little one had decided that waiting was not an option (takes after the mother) and that we needed to get to the hospital for a routine procedure…

Cut to the next scene and there I was like countless other fathers before me, pacing the corridors outside the labour room…. and the wait was mercifully short, or maybe I was in a fugue, and the doctor reappeared, unflappable as ever and informed me that I was the proud father of a baby boy…. 

Blogging, photography and everything has taken a backseat while diapers, feeding times and mittens have become the centre of our world 😊
