...and this dynasty.

Have a blessed week:)

Flying above the clouds...fills me with calm, every time. Always.

The night, the moon and two pristine water lilies.


My old, old Buddha cushion. Always near my pillow when i sleep. Been with me for years.

".,.sangeen pe dhar ke maathey, so gaye amar balidani..."
Naman tumko, amar shaheedon!
#AmarJawanJyoti #IndiaGate

same for you!
A new plant i got:)

Will be there for sure.


Aaj shaam wo phir aaya.
Wahi shaan. Wahi jamaal.

Truly blessed! Chanced upon this exquisite standing Saraswati. On cloth.
Adorning my wall now:)

So many puppies!
How to handle them?

From my album:) with one of my favourite politicians, Somnath Chatterji.


Another, tho not coffe table but a fine tome on Lucknow.

One of them here, published by the Los Angeles Museum of Art

My Mark Twain paperweight:)

A pair of green pigeons*, a rare sight othrwise, often visit us. Resting in the shorn-of-its-leaves Gulmohar.

So jaate hain footpath pe akhbaar bichha kar / Mazdoor kabhi neend ki goli nahi khatey.

Congress or Kejriwal.
A Party vs One man?

Personality cult politics? Megalomania?


Me in a 'day gharara'.
Years ago:) Eid.

This is so shameful or rather shameless. Dont miss the condescending smiles.
