Mahatta & Co.

With the title only, I don’t need to explain more about this post. The great Mahatta & Co. doesn’t need any introduction in New Delhi. Their landmark store in Connaught Place is must go for all the photography lovers. Last month, on my holiday to Kashmir and Gulmarg, I coincidentally ended up to their Store-Cafe-MuseumContinue reading “Mahatta & Co.”

But, I’m hoping to bring you some exciting posts from next month onwards. We all should take a break from our daily schedule in the urban cities.Continue reading “Escape to Hamta”

Box camera from Jaipur

This year is running too fast. I can’t believe February is also going to end in couple of weeks. Taking pictures is something I enjoy on every walk I take. Some makes sense and some are just for me, like random thoughts. While I was in Jaipur a month back, I got to meet SurendraContinue reading “Box camera from Jaipur”

Jaipur week

Year 2016 started with a lot of work and new challenges. Since 2011, I am visiting Jaipur in the month of January for the Literature festival. This year also, I spent a week in exploring Jaipur. Unlike, last few years, this time it was more exciting. Day 1 started with attending the talk of legendaryContinue reading “Jaipur week”

Poush is the 9th month of the Bengali calendar. It is the first month of Winter Season. Poush Mela is an annual fair that takes place in Shantiniketan. The fair starts on the 7th day of Poush for the full 3 days. It is been said that, Devendranath Tagore with twenty followers accepted the Brahmo creedContinue reading “পৌষ মেলা”

Kala Bhavan

It took me a long time to decide from where I should start this post. My last visit to Shantiniketan has changed my point of view of looking at an Artist. I have so much respect for each one of them whether he is a small flute-maker or a big painter. My small attempt hereContinue reading “Kala Bhavan”

Shantiniketan

Year 2014 was pretty exciting for me. I did some solo travels and got to experience life outside the comfort zone. It was from a long time that I was planning for a trip to Calcutta (West Bengal). They say that December would be the best month to visit there. Hence, I took my lastContinue reading “Shantiniketan”

With and Without You

Winter in Delhi is as beautiful as the Monsoon in Bombay. My first meeting with Bombay was in 2011. Since then, I felt a connection with this city. This city makes you feel free, free from all the questions you have in your mind. I moved to Bombay in 2012 with a dream to stayContinue reading “With and Without You”

Vintage Possession

I started binding notebooks some years back while studying in the college. My grandfather used to have a printing press back in early 90s. Today, we get brand new different types of notebook for our school and college days. But, during our parents time, the situation was not the same. My Grandfather used to bind the notebooksContinue reading “Vintage Possession”

Jami Masjid

I got to visit Ahmedabad in April this year. I had a list of places to visit in the old city. Fortunately, I got to stay with an influential Gujarati family who took me all around the city. The first and foremost thing you should do is to register yourself for Heritage Walk Morning heritageContinue reading “Jami Masjid”

Nizamuddin Auliya

Its raining outside, I wish the Monsoon comes soon!! Reading Amir Khusrau in my room, I am sharing today, the beauty of Nizamuddin Auliya in his words…. You are the friend to sorrowful hearts. Imagination and intellect are lost in you. Stars and heavens are in motion in astonishment at your deeds. The path toContinue reading “Nizamuddin Auliya”

Diary Leaves

There are few places you love visiting as many times you could. I am not a religious person, but with time I always liked to go to Vrindavan. As mentioned before in one of my post, I worked there on an assignment for couple of months. Since then, I am visiting this town to meetContinue reading “Diary Leaves”

Calico Museum of Textiles

Ahmedabad, the city once known as the “Manchester of the East”, due to its textile industry. I visited the city this month and had few selected must to go places. Calico Museum of Textiles was on the top of that list. It was initially a disappointment to know that you should have a prior booking forContinue reading “Calico Museum of Textiles”

On a day off

One of my dear friend ‘Nevine’ was in town last week. She is a great craft lover. We travel all around the city every time she comes here. This time our target was Connaught Place. There is a small lane on Janpath where you get some really beautiful handcrafted stuff. Here’s a small glimpse onContinue reading “On a day off”
