I very rarely take selfies, because, I am not good at it!. And photos including me, that too very rare – because, I will be the one who will be clicking always. So, if one of these happen, it obviously is with someone extra special. This time, it is with Devu…. who has been with our family, before I was born, who has been with us all along. She and her late husband Velayudhan worked for us. They had 2 kids, a boy and a girl, of the same age as my younger sister and myself… both died when they were small kids. After that, we were like their own kids for both of them. Velayudhan died long ago in a tragic accident. Devu is still around. Old age is giving her troubles to walk and move around. But her spirit to keep young and cheerful is still there!. She is not working any more, but comes home time to time. I managed to meet her this time, and it is then this click happened. Indeed, a celebrity in our life. God bless.
The below short story in Malayalam will describe life in those days:
It was not an easy task to capture this little spider, busy at work.
It was something special to witness this Festival of Lights at Kodungallur during this Navarathri.
The distance covered with the distance to cover is within the reach of those who try.
We will be there soon….
Congratulations to #TeamISRO – #Chandrayan2 is a success and #India wins.
As a #PassionatePhotographer, I know how difficult is to click a perfect photo of moon. We congratulate your hard work and dedication and sure that your continued efforts will find success soon.
Huge loss to all Non-Residents. One of the best External Affairs Minister a non-resident Indian can ever dream for. Several times a tweet to her office helped resolve urgent issues and made mission impossible possible!. May her departed soul rest in peace. Photo taken during her visit on 4th December 2018 to address Indian Community in the UAE. She was so courteous enough to allow each and everyone of the attendees, till the last lane to be photographed with her. Tearful pranams #SushmaSwaraj.

Photo Speaks: It is time to restart my weekly blog post titled “Mind Speaks”. This time, it will be handwritten. Not finding it easy, as I have not used a pen, or to be frank, a fountain pen for a very long time. These days, writing has become short, may be one or two sentences! I will try and make it legible and interesting. A challenge, as I do not have the option to delete and re-write when I write with a pen. Thoughts, words and writings have to be very clear!!!.
Summer is getting better, brighter and hotter. One way to win over it is to get used to it as much as one can. Like other activities, cycling is one of my passion and it is the best way I find to get acclimatised to the change of weather. Either in the morning or in the evening, through the dedicated cycling tracks #InAbuDhabi city, it is more than fun to ride a bicycle at a leisurely pace. As a #PassionatePhotographer, you get to see the city from various different angles that you normally don’t notice if in a car or any other mode of transport. My route today was through the Abu Dhabi Municipality. The special sign boards or “Year of Tolerance” are prominently displayed there from the day it was was launched. Seeing it, my thought process argued with me, how many times, I had to really practice my Tolerance skills this year?!
I am sure, reading this small note, each one of you will ponder about.
I wish to hear your experiences on this key topic.
Footnote to my post of today – Too much of computer and mobile and absolutely no writing by hand!. I found that my handwriting has become extremely bad!😢! So, decided to have a weekly blog post handwritten and posted as jpeg.
