Organised Chaos

I always think of cities as organised chaos and being born and brought up in one of the Asian metropolis, I have seen and experienced this chaos which runs deep even inside of people living in these cities.

Somehow, the melange of emotions, people and serendipity keeps this chaos alive. The story continues, the city keeps breathing and organised chaos lives on.

Of questions, emotions and lost moments !!

I took this portrait at one of the street shoots at Mumbai’s famous Abdul Rehman street market where this young boy was selling toys on the street. When I posed a camera towards him I got one poignant look from him which is also visible in his eyes. Those eyes as if hiding so many questions, emotions and lost moments in it.

Faith

“…there is a God, there always has been. I see him here, in the eyes of the people in this [hospital] corridor of desperation. This is the real house of God, this is where those who have lost God will find Him… there is a God, there has to be, and now I will pray, I will pray that He will forgive that I have neglected Him all of these years, forgive that I have betrayed, lied, and sinned with impunity only to turn to Him now in my hour of need. I pray that He is as merciful, benevolent, and gracious as His book says He is.”

This was a lucky shot on one of the street shoot at Vasai Fort where there is large community of Catholics fisherman. This is a small cross on the trunk of a big tree on the road side. It looked so beautiful and never knew it will come out like this.

Alone in a crowd

दौड़ते शहेर का हिस्सा हु मै, हकीक़त में उलझा किस्सा हु मै |

य़ू आते जाते लम्हों में, भूली बिसरी यादों का हिस्सा हु मै |

हादसों के इस शहेर में, लम्हों का सिलसिला हु मै |

Clicked this picture at Fort (Mumbai) at very first outing with Mumbai Weekend Shoot (MWS) on 1st January 2012. The picture always reminds me of being alone in crowd and getting lost in my own world. 

Life is a Journey

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

– Robert Frost

No matter how many twists and turns… they will never meet.

Image

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by
