Incredible India

The Dramatically poised Bhaava

TRULY INDIA - Where else do u find such DRAMATIC EXPRESSIONS...!!!
The Dancer on move during the Ganesh Idol procession for submersion. The special expressions portraying anger in one of the BHAAVAS of Goddess Kaali ( as she was slaying the demon Daarikan in anger )is seen only in these masked dancers. The dance is a part of Theyyam practiced in parts of Kerala. This is one of the choicest themes of the dancers and the drum artists
. It happens only in our Incredible INDIA.

Sea-side Radio Centre


Chunnambar Beach, Radio Centre

This was an old dilapidated yet I guess working radio centre. Shot at the Chunnambar beach or the famous Paradise beach of Pondicherry. The beach ( 8 km further south) can be reached by a ferry that charges around 25 rupees to 50 rupees. The beach is quite serene and small. Only limited crowd is seen there. Some beach sport can also be done there like volley etc. The sea is a bit rough, so it is advised not to go far in water.

Bathing in Adi Ganga



Local Bengali boys take a dip in the Holy river Adi Ganga at the banks of Kaali Ghat, Kali temple, Kolkata. The river was once a symbol of purity and a lifeline of Bengal. Now it has been turned only to a murky stream of dirty water.

Childhood


The Sweet Childhood

The shot of this girl was taken at a locality near Kaali Ghaat, Kolkata. I was awed by her pure innocence. She was least bothered about the camera and myself,who had just steeped in from nowhere. Actually, her eyes had gleamed on seeing the instrument. While she played and was looking towards one of my friends  nearby, I captured this candid moment.
