Day Six: Seven Shots that I Love


I am participating in the Write Tribe Festival of Words 1st-7th September 2013 ( Today, I have chosen to put seven personal clicks that I shot during my travel and that I personally love. My theme for Day 6 is: Seven Shots that I Love. However, it is not necessarily Seven best shots for the theme SEVEN since I have several pictures that I love. I hope you will love the pictures.

167The picture was taken in December 2011 during my visit to the city that never sleeps.  A tale where I re-lived my life in Mumbai and, of course, our iconic Chattrapathi Shivaji Terminus (CST) commonly known as VT Station. The historical architecture adorned and blossomed by the crazy traffic, yellow-and-black cabs, buses, vehicles form part of the moods and moments of amazing Mumbai. Not a dull moment!


Marine Drive, the place we are lost in dreams and thoughts in SoBo (South Bombay) and where I spent countless nights sitting alone and admiring the beautiful scenery. It is the soul of the city where so many who came to the city with dreams in their eyes slept on the pavement. I adore the nights sitting there and enjoying life. I was staying in one of the buildings opposite the sea (Yes, you can see the skycrapers) and you can imagine how lucky I was. It was my hostel on C Road, Churchgate, International Students Hostel in 2006-07. How I miss my life in Mumbai! Now, you gotta pray for me so that a miracle happens and I land in one of ma favorite city coz I wanna my life back.


The picture was taken on the day I was catching the flight, sadly leaving my muse Mumbai or Bombay. The shot was taken from the moving cab at Churchgate station and the picture showing ways  to LIC Building, EROS Theater and of course, Marine Drive. I love my Mumbai, Jahan pe Zindagi hai (Living Life King size). How I miss the city that never sleeps! Truly Maximum City! Yeah, it’s the double-decker BEST Bus. The picture was taken in the morning and this is a place where I left my soul. How can I forget the long walks, buying newspapers, watching movies, admiring beautiful girls, drinking tea and of course, holding the hands of my beautiful girl friend. Sadly, we are no longer together and she is happily settled in the States.

811I introduce myself. That’s ME! Don’t judge a book by its cover. It was not my picture as an innocent student but I visited college in 2011-12 and got myself clicked in tee and back pack inside my college, Fergusson College in Pune. Fergie as it is known is the place where I spent the three best years of my life. I am proud to be a Fergussion and how I wish I could go back in time, free of any hassles.


My Alma Mater, Fergusson College. It is the main building and also college circle where students hang around. I find my soul sitting with friends and enjoying life. I adore my college which is an integrated part me. Fergie is an amazing college during the times of British rule and it is an amazing place. Whenever, I go to Pune, the first thing I do is to take a walk in college.


Wanna take a guess where this picture was taken on New Year? Well, it was taken in Goa and now, don’t freak out! On your way to Goa, make sure you hop to South Goa, Conacona where Palolem Beach is located. I love the simple life and rural set up which is refreshing to one’s soul. This way leads to Palolem Beach and is an amazing place to stay. By bus, it will take you two hours all the way from Panaji and you gotta change two buses. But, it’s a journey worth taking and you’ll love the place.


Truly Divine, Isn’t it? It’s Qutub Minar in Delhi and the last picture was taken last year during an official visit for a week. I absolutely love Delhi, a city unique for its cultural and historical heritage, Delhi is charming and unique in its own way.

Hope you love the seven pictures and I shall leave you with a poem.

Pictures speak thousands emotions, expressions and thoughts:

Like the countless colors of life, pictures speak a lot about human relations and emotions;

Our heart melts and grow closer;

This is the power of Seven as we gather our thought process and creative leanings;

We haven’t met and probably will never meet yet our thoughts and souls have grown closer like strings on the guitar;

We bonded with each other for Seven Days of wonderful writing as our hearts strike a chord with each other;

This is the power of the heart;

Some call it love, some may call it the power of thoughts;

Let’s be grateful for this amazing journey where we lived life in Seven Days;

One more day to go;

Let’s make it moment of a life time;

Love you people and the Seven-er brought us closer.

Hope you like the pictures and the poem.



Work-in-progress, seeker and bundle of contradictions. Stubborn and Refusal to grow up and constantly in search of myself, I blurt it out on my space. Drop in and share some love. Indian by choice.

  1. Yes pictures do speak a thousand words. These 7 clicks gave us a peek into your life. Great memories!!

    The poem was lovely! These 7 days were an amazing experience…certainly brought our hearts closer!

  2. Lovely pictures that do capture the essence of the places you mentioned. And nice of you too 🙂 You are from Fergusson. A lot of my friends studied there. We went to Palolem Beach in Goa. It is nice and peaceful in comparison to the other more crowded beaches.

    1. Yeah! I was at FC and love the college days, best days of ma life. I love Palolem Beach and way better than the other crowded beaches in Goa. It’s an awesome place and love the serene rural set up:)

  3. pictures of course are lovely. They hold a very candid feel to each scene captured.

    Just one thing, do remove or disable the date display from pictures, i feel they often kill the natural element of the scene 🙂 Just a suggestion from my side 🙂
