Check out the Agra Image Gallery

It is a lot easier and timely to just dump all my pictures on Facebook or any other media sharing site. A lot of people do it, but somehow I can't do it. There is a stringent selection process through which the images nees to go. The selected ones then needs to be optimised so they are quicker to upload and download and then I have to share my experiences and opinions. This needs time and that is what we have in short supply so instead of holding up all the pictures, a partial gallery is uploaded. Will post updates as and when I upload more.

Horse shoe - for luck

Some people put a horse shoe on their on their doors for luck. These are also for luck but a little different. You know, not everyone who comes to Fatehpur Sikri is looking for a child. There are people with other aspirations as well. Like the owners and jockeys of race horses who come and put the horse shoe on this door for better luck.

Going to these shrines has become more than a way of seeking blessings. This has become a promotional tool - one used quite effectively by the Bollywood. You keep hearing of producers and actors going to these places for seeking blessings for the success of their movies. The whole thing is then reported by the media the very same day generating the extra buzz around the movie, exactly as desired by the producers and the actors.

The Agra Image Gallery in now online. Have a look.
