During India Art Summit 2011, we saw lot of art-works in various fields, created by some of very popular artists from various countries. Apart from Photography, Paintings, Paper-art, wooden arts, there were lots of Sculptures... This is one of them and one of the most popular ones. This was already sold and it was unbelievable to know that large percentage of art-works were already sold.

Many times I meet people visiting Shimla and at times, few of them say - "What's there in Shimla to visit/see".... "Shimla is too much crowded" .... and I say "What exactly you expect to visit in a place like Shimla" ...
In my opinion, Shimla town has best walks around the Mall road which passes through wonderful deodar forests, very old British Architecture and should I mention about weather & freshness of the town?
This is one of the street in the photograph, which is near to Vidhan Sabha... And the BEST part is that places in Himachal are extremely safe but that doesn't mean that one should be careless about it ! bcoz, exceptions are always there which may happen with anyone in bad times.. But Shimla is one of the favorite travel destination. In case you are planning for Shimla and need more info, catch me at VJ@travellingcamera.com and I am not a travel agent :)

A very old Church hidden by long deodars on the way to Mcleodganj, Upper Dharmshala, Himachal Pradesh !!!
Most beautiful natural colors I have ever captured in India !!! It's rare to see colorful and neat places in India.. Many times I saw wonderful photographs from various countries with lots of colors and cleanness, but never encountered such places in India. It was a very quick visit to Dhamshala/Mcleodganj and we stopped our car near a church on the way. When we started moving towards the church, I saw this wonderful view !!! It was right time of the year to see these colors of deodar cones !!

Last year when I visited Banglore, UB city is one of the place in the list of Must-Visit places because I had heard a lot about it... And finally reached at the parking of UB City where we were the only ones to park Maruti Zen !!! Most of the cars in the surroundings were BMW, Mercs, Audi etc... Then we took a lift and reached in ground floor which looked like reception of a five star hotel... After roaming around we came towards open air restaurants which were too much crowded and had to wait for a long time... During this waiting time we had fun around these colorful fountains.. Children love these and used to play with water... Finally we ended up enjoying this evening around these fountains without eating anything.... After the lovely evening we had dinner at some Andhra Restaurant !!!

Few days back I met her at Humayun's Tomb and she wanted to ask something but hesitating to start.. First she started with a simple question about my Camera and introduced herself. She was travelling in various parts of India for last few days... She keenly observed some of the worker there who were doing some maintenance work at main Tomb... She was mainly worried if these people are completely going to change the monument or it's just few main pillars of the Tomb... Although she was appreciating their work and some of them were really changing the art-works on the walls...
Suddenly after few minutes of conversation with this lady and I also thought about it ... and realized that soon we may see a new/Modern Humayun's Tomb if not maintained well !!!

Few days back, I got to know about Delhi Drum Circle through Facebook. It's a community where all the Drum lovers or I would say music lovers get together at Deer Park in Hauz Khas Village on weekends with their instruments. It's very good to see such things happening in India and I guess Delhi & Mumbai are much ahead of other cities in this sense. Although I may be wrong...
During this event, I saw few kids playing these instruments so well. One boy was on flute and he was awesome !!! Here this cute girl was just sitting around this Tabla and enjoying the music there... Although she was not playing but interest towards Tabla in this age is also commendable... I am planning to go tomorrow for Delhi Drum Circle with a small drum.. Let's See...

I am sure that you will be able to recognize this Lamp if you have visited India Gate or President's House in Delhi !!! These are made up on red stone and carved to give this shape... Most of the buildings in this area are made up of same stone.. Like President's House, India Gate, Museum of Modern Art etc...
This shot was taken during a lovely evening during winters of 2010 and other photographs can be checked at http://phototravelings.blogspot.com/2011/02/india-gate-alive-at-night.html

This photograph was clicked last year during Mountain Terrain Biking event in Himachal Pradesh during October. This is first time I seriously tried panning but believe me it was too difficult with these guys :) Everyone has unique speed and very fast, in fact... And there is no chance of clicking two panning shots with one rider :)

Although the photograph is dull but I have clicked this on a very special day... btw the dullness of this photograph is due to exporting it through a software which tried to be over-smart with the Photograph and spoiled the sharpness of newly bought Canon 50D :) ... This Photograph was clicked on a day when I had to wait for my punctual friends for 3 Hrs in Cannought Place in Delhi !!! I just walked to Jantar Mantar and enjoyed the day with my Camera :)
