"Please stop making me feel like an environmental terrorist!"
Since my childhood fireworks and crackers have been an integral part of Diwali just like it for Chinese New Year or the 4th of July. I am celebrating a religious holiday; I have a reason to enjoy a bit of fireworks, no matter how lame it may look to others; however no one seems to be having a problem with Fireworks Festivals or World Pyro Olympics who are doing it just for the heck of it.

A photo-shoot involving a smashed up glass bottles is not the safest of the thing to do especially when a 9 year old kid is involved, which is unavoidable as Manu HAS to be involved in a photo-shoot if I am doing it.

This is my first attempt at smoke photography and it happened by accident.

Ganpati Bappa Morya
An active participant and the reason we started celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi, Manu reminds me of my childhood. I was just the opposite of him. I hated going to temples.

What's on your plate
I find it is like going to a restaurant and ordering the chef's special and then wait to be surprised. Though this spider is most likely to be served a mosquito or a fly.

No Madhu, Only Makkhi
I don't know what a insect that loves poop and everything rotten and dirty is doing on a flower... may be has aspirations to be a bee.

RIP Robin Williams
It is heartbreaking to know that the man who made everyone else laugh was driven to suicide because of depression. I just can’t make myself believe it.

Almost a butterfly
This is a moth which is almost like a butterfly, not only in its shape but in beauty as well... or is it a butterfly.

Three's a Company
When magnified this much, the seeds in the kiwi look like kalonji - the seeds of onion.

Back in early 2000s when Kiwi was not as popular in India, a friend of mine said "So this is a different fruit altogether, I used to think it was a sapodilla of superior quality.

Badhia quality ka chikoo
In the photo session when Manuraj took this shot, I also took some pictures including this one, the posted yesterday and a few more to come. I arranged that shoot and Manu colcked the pictures. Now my aim is that Manu should be able to arrange a shoot like this himself. You know where he takes an object to be shot, selects the background other stuff.

Too good to be true
Manuraj was asked by his photography teacher to take pictures during the summer vacations and bring them when the school reopens.

Is it because sugar is cheaper or we have a sweet tooth
The percentage of cocoa on Amul Dark Chocolate is 55%. Where there are imported chocolates available with a higher percentage of cocoa, Indian chocolates usually don't have a very high percentage.

Natural Source of Antioxidants
Madhuri Dixit claims that one packet of Maggi Instant Noodles gives you the fiber you get from three rotis, however she forgets to mention that you also get carbohydrates of four rotis and fat of about two parathas.

From the finest Cocoa
The use of unconventioally bold typography and smaller image makes this stand out from the crowd most of which seem to have a similar packaging.
