and here goes my 100th blog :D ..

While walking down a street, I find the pavement is occupied by the banjaras ( living beggarly on the pavements). Barely anything to stack, unlike us, I find them into little chore of activities. Every possession of theirs is at display. Living under the hoods made from tarpauline sheets, the families of the same banjara community are living next to each other. While walking furhter , I find outside a similar small structure , a rangoli mentioning "WELCOME" in english . I was so pleased to see a rangoli outside a barely closed hut, with no doors ,no windows - a warm welcome note in the form of rangoli in bright White, Red and Blue mentioning a welcome to one and all travelling through the street!!

Thought to capture that in an image, but the immediate thought of impeding their privacy took me back.
Life is ..

Wish u all a very Happy Diwali and a Prosperous New Year.!! Enjoy


Another of my noting that happened today morning only,
while I was waiting at a shop making radium number plate for vehicles, I observed there were boxes of radium stickers on various subjects like various animal forms, birds, various designs etc. What hold my attention amidst tons of boxes was a small box marked " mixed bhagvan " meaning a box containing "mixed god"stickers...
Now conceptually this is so nice that it would solve major problems on this earth, majority of which starting in the name of religion..!! What say..!!
