iPhone13|1/60Sec-f/1.6-ISO200|31Dec21-17:18:04

Chennai experienced a sudden cloud burst in Dec 2021 & it created a fresh flood in the streets of Chennai. All the homeless people took shelter wherever they could find dry ground. In this image, you can see these old homeless ladies took shelter in a metro station. I was surprised to see this old lady sharing her clothes to keep the street dogs warm. They were not her pet, she was homeless and yet a human filled with kindness despite the trying situation.

My son found the reason he loves his new school in its large spacious auditorium. Devoid of school children and the regular cacophony of a busy school, the space offered him some respite from being locked indoors due to the pandemic. He ran around the entire auditorium measuring this large space with the number of large steps he could take. Indeed, the school offered him freedom to grow, both in mind and in space.

Often, innocent behaviours of a child makes for funny situations. He could have easily dropped the flowers to his friend standing below, but chose instead to stretch and hope they could meet half way for the handover! I heard him say “jump... just a little higher!”

An artist from Rajasthan used to set up his shop of these handcrafted toys at a traffic intersection often. It seems that the Giraffes, Camel and Horse stood stupefied by the chaos of civilization at this busy intersection... just as human civilization would be if we were forced into the wild.

At the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park in Vizag, Udayan was intrigued by this reclusive Tortoise who seemed to have forged a great bond of friendship with the Squirrel. On closer inspection, the truth was revealed. This was a Tortoise made of cement intended for smaller live turtles to take shelter beneath it. Alas! This piggy-back ride would not ferry the squirrel anywhere.

1️⃣Won the 1st place in Weekly Travel Photography Competition (Sub: Zoo) of Lonely Planet blog (lonelyplanetcommunity.tumblr.com) & published in the blog as winning image and received a LP Book of Udayan’s choice (he selected The Food Book for his wife this time). [Link: goo.gl/zvjSM6]

Udayan had waited a long time for his order to arrive and he was getting as restless as he was hungry. Looking around, he saw the restaurant was filled with chattering families, lots of laughter, groups of gregarious youngsters and bustling waiters. In a corner, through the glass door, he saw this lonely man standing guard at the entrance. It was as if the glass door created a huge gulf between the guard outside and the merry crowd inside. Worlds kept apart by merely a piece of glass!

This image was shot during the holy month of Ramzan at a local Mosque. The building was decorated with lights and Udayan found the form of the crescent within the shape of the window against the glowing green light fascinating. He asked a devotee to pose for him at the window, but got refused. A short while later, another devotee walked up to the window, totally oblivious to Udayan. As he stood still looking at the busy street below, Udayan got the opportunity to take this perfect shot.

Driving through hills on dirt roads, Udayan reached a small tribal hamlet deeply nestled somewhere between Araku and the Orissa border. He saw a few structures where grains were stored, some chickens, some goats, two rows of thatched dwellings, a few old women and children. The kids were very shy and ran away as soon as he tried to approach them, yet came back to see the car he was travelling in. He handed them a bar of chocolate. They were delighted. This little girl in the image caught his particular attention because she was very wary. She kept her distance from both the car and Udayan, yet never letting him go out of her sight, lightly hopping behind some cover with her little brother wedged on her hips as soon as he turned to look.

1️⃣Accepted in iPAE2006 Salon (Butterfly Art Foundation International Photo-Art Exhibition) & published in their catalogue.

Often life presents a juxtaposition of circumstances and people that create a fascinating frame. Two women... a content widow with no worldly cares at rest near a pretty yet lifeless model, their feet inches apart, yet clearly conveying their different attitudes towards life. Untouched by the passage of time, the two women created a thought provoking frame for Udayan.

“Because I could not stop for Death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves - And Immortality”.
Millions of people from many parts of India throng the edge of the holy Ganges at the Manikarnika Ghat in Varanasi with a hope that their final journey on earth ends where humanity meets divinity. At the divine gates, their lifes deeds would be weighed and if the good weighed more than the bad, they would earn the right to walk into light. Udayan found this hunched old man emerge from a courtyard filled with wood that fuels fire to consume the mortal remains of humans. His slouching shoulders, measured steps, the weighing scale and his lifes possessions on his back summed up the solemn story of the last mile in this frame.

Wandering amongst tourists trying to eke out a living, this enterprising sadhu took on the role of a guide to help tourists around his city and make an honest living for himself. On a boat ride along the river Ganges as Udayans guide, this holy man made himself comfortable at one end of the boat with his smoking pipe and a content squat. He could not resist the temptation of some worldly pleasure as he sailed along the cool river front smoking his beloved pipe lost in thoughts of enlightenment.

“I’m hiding from my dad kind sir coz he will send me to school while I’d much rather pose for you.”

As the sky was beginning to light up, the horse and his rider came to the beach to exercise and stretch. What an amazing partnership they had! The horse used his rider as the anchor while he ran in circles and the rider used the horse as a balance. Who do you share such a perfect relationship with?

They had many the luxuries a man longs for, a TV to be entertained, a cooler to keep the Chennai heat away, an washing machine, a sofa and a bed to lounge around in... what they did not have though was a basic need, a roof over their head. They adjusted to the stench of the open road and made it their homeless home. They were making the most of their “wants” while they struggle to have their “needs” met.

As Sunday dawns, the fishermen bring their haul of fish back from the deep sea in the hope that the waiting customers will like the fresh catch and pay them a handsome price for it. Coming home with a haul of fish is a welcome sight on Sundays for both buyers and sellers as its meant for family, food and rest.

A traditional yet controversial practice, Jallikattu is an experience that one does not forget ever. The adrenaline of both man and bull reach a frenzy as participants attempt to grab the large hump on the bull’s back with both arms and hang on to it while the bull attempts to escape and run back to its owner. The owner of the bull has as much stake in this event as the men who try to stop the bull. The question on everyone’s mind is, will the participant be able to stop the raging bull or will the owner be able to draw it towards the finish line first. A platform for the display of bravery and skill, Jallikattu is a tradition that many practice in Tamil Nadu as part of the annual harvest festival called Pongal.
Will you be willing to take on the raging bull to prove your bravery?

Two labourers working at a construction site building a new water tank wanted to escape the searing heat in Chennai for a few minutes as they took a break. They found the perfect spot, 6 stories high on a ledge of the same water tank away from the blistering heat and the back-breaking work. I was captivated by their relaxed body language as they hung so high above the ground sharing a moment of peace and friendship against the maze of the supporting pillars and ledges of the water tank.

Bowling is the act of propelling the ball with a straight arm towards the batsmans wicket. This young paper boy was perhaps practicing his bowling, albeit with the morning newspaper! Its the technique that counts after all, not what you practice with or where... Udayan was “Bowled over!“ by the dedication of this paper boy.

Udayan’s three year old son decided it was time to sneakily service the cycle that held his fascination for so long without his fathers knowledge just before bath time so he could wash away any grease later. Just as he climbed his cycle to service daddy’s cycle, little Ujan realized that he had left the spanner and degreaser spray behind. Udayan got this candid shot of his in-house mechanic in action.

He was brought home when he was about 1 month old and as soon as he met Udayans 1 year old Daschund, Tobo, he chased after him. Thus he was named Gunda, the bossy ringmaster to the entire household. Gunda finds it hard to keep still, more so when there is food around. He is Udayans shadow, following him all day long or should we say Udayan is Gundas shadow? They are like two sides of the same coin. Inseparable best buddies.

*** Kulasai Dasara is the grand festival of 300 year old Kulasai Mutharammam Temple which is located at Kulasekharapatnam in Tamil Nadu. In essence, Dasara is celebrated in the 10th day after 9-day of Navaratri festival across India. However, at Kulasai, it is celebrated as a 12-days function. It is estimated that around 2.5 Million [25Lakhs] devotees visited the temple in the 2018 celebrations.

Teams are formed from each village and are sponsored by the richest family of the village or the village head. One member from this team is chosen to don the avatar of Goddess Kali, the central god in this festival. A strict condition is that only a man can dress as Kali and has to fast for 41 days. Other members dress up like other Gods or Goddesses according to their choice. During Dasara, these devotees need to dress like the god/goddess every day and have to abstain from impure thoughts and bad habits. They need to commit to being pure in body, mind and soul.

Kulasekharapatnam is a tiny coastal town with extremely high humidity and temperature. In this climate, it’s not an easy commitment to be dressed as a god in heavy costume and with bold makeup. If this was not hard enough, they fast for 41 days and carry a pot of fire in their bare hands, wear multiple weighty false arms and a pair of metal glasses with a tiny hole limiting their vision to almost zero and are surrounded by people playing drums and loud music.
I have seen some of these avatars faint out of exhaustion, heat, the frenzy around them and dehydration.

Each team roams around many villages during Dasara and perform a ritualistic dance to earn some alms. As it is quite a lucrative way of earning money, some individuals, especially kids, also dressed in godly costumes to make some easy money.

During the last day of the festival, the celebrations peak. The avatars visit the temple and on the last leg of their journey through the temple corridor, they perform a ritualistic dance in devotion to the God. To depict the anger with which Goddess Lalithambigai destroyed Magisasuran, they enter a trance like state characterized by deafening music and violent dancing.

After they have offered their prayers, they then finally go the beach behind the temple and worship the fire that they have carried in their hands. A cleansing dip follows where they take a bath and immerse all the godly belongings which made them look like God. Local kids then have fun collecting these godly avatars to play with them or keep them as a memory.

An interesting thing however is that taking a dip in the sea with all the heavy costume is a practical problem as water makes everything seem heavier. So they just stand in the sea and spray some sea water on themselves symbolically and take off their costumes post that.

Millions of visitors come to attend this event. Sometimes an entire village arrives by buses or in trucks. They pitch their tents in open grounds for three days making it look like a mini picnic complete with cooking facilities.

Local residents are also very helpful towards these visitors. They allow them to take shelter in their homes. Some families even offer water and food to these visitors.

The final day looks like a colourful carnival where thousands of teams line up in a narrow lane marching towards the temple for hours often stretching day into night. It is life-time experience to witness the event and feel their faith & dedication.

Meet my 48 day old son, Ujan Atig Pal (UjanAtigPal.com) who does not know what to do with his two hands. So he plays with them by himself & makes new poses always. He had to stay in an ICU at a hospital as he was a premature baby born at 29 weeks. Doctors said that usually night shifts were boring as they did not have much work to do. However during the 37 nights that Atig stayed there, each night was memorable & not boring as they used to spend their time with him and see his new poses with his hands always. This time too he was posing in a new manner with two hands on his face and a naughty smile. I could not resist myself from taking this candid shot! By the way, he is a really tiny baby. You cannot probably guess how tiny he really is from this pic as I have digitally zoomed in to show his mischievous smile.

A symbol of prestige and known for its hardiness, the Ambassador car was a gentle giant on the roads in its hey days. But neither time nor tide waits for anyone. Faster and sleeker cars took their place on the roads and the Ambassador gently got shoved to the sides of roadside. Neglected yet standing proud, it still serves a purpose. That of providing shade to a green overgrowth and of resting sports cycles against it.

Migrant artisans lined up on a pavement making and selling their wares is quite a common sight in Hyderabad. A group of drummers lived on the pavement near the road that leads to the business district in Hyderabad with their extended families. Each male bread earner of the family converted a tree into their shop, hanging rudimentary drums that they and their immediate family made from low hanging branches. What caught Udayans eye was the impressive sales strategy these drummers adopted. They did not bother selling their wares to people walking on the road. They focused on people travelling in cars with their kids catching their attention by playing a peppy tune on the drums because this customer base guaranteed a good selling price over the pedestrians.

The impressive arches of the Golkonda Fort, symmetrical and graceful, leads you into a complex labyrinth of rooms, stairways, corridors and open yards, each shrouded in layers of history. Mosques, ladies rooms, public conference rooms, war rooms, market places, this place was obviously a hub of activity in years past. Thronged by tourists, the fort has survived the ravages of time and still holds its place as a hub of activity in modern times. While one tourist was mesmerized with the architecture of the Fort, the others were off to explore more.

Big courtyards, complex labyrinths, a maze of arched walkways and scores of rooms. Golkonda Fort is the right place for curious tourists to spend their time unraveling the stories of past times. These two boys were a part of a school educational excursion. Udayan caught them wander off into one of the many geometrical corridors the fort is peppered with. What was the purpose of these corridors that went nowhere? Perhaps they were used just as it is used now, a safe place to “walk the talk“.

Hidden among the ruins of the Golkonda Fort lies an ancient Kali temple. Believed to be built during the time the Kakatiya reigned over this region, the temple lies sandwiched between two huge rocks. Udayan was captivated by the brilliantly painted rock faces and wanted to photograph it. This royally dressed young bride appeared out of nowhere at the head of the small wedge between the rocks completing the frame magically.

Lotus pond is a small serene water body in the heart of Hyderabad city lined with a beautiful park where many people go for morning walks amidst the verdant natural beauty.

Through pinched fingers, a stream of colored chalk powder flows uninhibitedly to leave a wonderful mosaic of flowers, leaves, birds and abstract designs. In South India, Muggulu (as its known in AP) is a treasured art form passed on among women from generation to generation. This festive motif deftly drawn on the street outside Udayans home seemed to him the perfect way to herald 2013. Welcome 2013!
