World Photography Day and Me!

Just after World Photography Day (and maybe a couple of days too late), a glimpse into what pictures mean to me, and why you see so many on my blog. And a few photographs to leave you with shared memories.

    Broken but operational skeleton ashtray from Indonesia. Picked up when I went there more than 16 years old. Carried it with me to 4 cities...hopesd to deter (disgust)  smoker friends. They couldn't care less... for @anushankarn Bebook - a mobile library for kids in the state of goa. Lovely initiative; supported by the equally lovely folks at Literati. Don't remember? It's that awesome library in calangute in an old Portuguese house... Shared pictures a few weeks ago. 
Proceeds from some books at Literati go towards the cause. 
POA -> visit Literati -> find those books -> purchase books -> support the cause.

I've done it. Now you do it too!  Let's get kids reading! By the beach... #bordi

If only my camera lens wasn't so dirty! The crematorium at #bordi 
It stands there on the beach, in the middle of nowhere when it's low tide. Never seen one like this. 
Cremation grounds / crematoriums always reiterate to me - you come alone and go alone. But none so far have made me feel how 'alone' that alone is... This one did. We stood near by with the wind promising to move even the earth with it's supreme force. 
These places always get me comparing the concept of cremation versus burial. I genuinely prefer cremation as a concept, with logical arguments and all! 
What about you?
