“You take the colours right from the palette, I say!

You speak of a place within, I gather.

Painter happens to be my soul, ain’t it?

You often have a say with the silence.

Such myriad colours you adorn yourself with

And glare at me for treading upon you

I gasp for breath out of exhaustion and astonishment

You sure have ensnared me in your arms”



Friend: Poetry

My heart stopped at its sight

Over and above the clouds

Untouched by the greedy humans

Nurtures the tired souls

Time stands still

Awakening the spiritual call

Intriguing is the silence

Never a song to the naysayers!

Face: Poetry

As the clouds cast their wispy will

A serene face phases the real and surreal

As humility hums like the bumble bee

One wonders the magnanimity of the marvel

The face faces the serene soul

To evoke an energy so purely powerful

The music mystically enthrals the seeker

And the blissful revelation is revealed!

After researching over the weekend on the how to’s and when to’s…. we hit upon a  travel agency and they said it’s possible in September and they could arrange with transportation and accommodation for the places that we wanted to visit.

Well, we were excited and finalized in on September….

Meanwhile, I did check with my traveller friend and he suggested that we do the trip ourselves and that he would help us with the plan…..

“Why not! That’s…

Trekking trail, Stok Kangri, Ladakh

Being on the edge always gives me an adrenaline rush. This trail was mesmerising as well as a bit scary but totally worth trekking through it.

On the Run at Tsomoriri, Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir, India

It was a beautiful day at the Tsomoriri Lake at 14000 odd feet. Just as I was capturing the scenic lake, I heard some noises and turned around. I then clicked in the nick of time to capture the running horses.




Stok Range, Ladakh, India

My soulful treasure: The Mountains, especially the Himalayas!

Days and days pass by,

My love for them stands by.

It is a calling I cannot ignore,

For I long for them forever more.
