Beach Cricket!

Any evening, go to any ground, any gully, any park, any beach: you will find these guys. I am not a great fan of cricket, but I am amazed how this game has become a part of Indian life. In a country of thousand languages, this is the one common language that everyone understands!

Ahalya and Pinky!

Every time I go to my little cousin Ahalya’s house, she has some surprises for me to show. Last time, her cat had just given birth to two kittens. Whenever she shows her pets to me, I pull her legs by saying I want to take them with me as I don’t have anyone to play with. She gets angry and I love to see her cute face in anger.

So recently on Diwali, I visited her house. As soon as she saw me, she ran into her room and came out with this gorgeous kitten.

I understood this was one of the same two kittens which had not even opened their eyes a few months back. I asked her where the other one was. She said it died after a few days. She looked sad and I could not bear that anymore. I said, ‘Come on, let’s play with Pinky!’ (I don’t know why she kept that name!).
Well, the cute little Pinky looked hyperactive, was in a playful mood, and was playing with whatever came in front of her.

I just fell in love with her gorgeous eyes. This time I really wanted to take her with me. But I did not want to upset Ahalya this time. As I continued to photograph Pinky, I told Ahalya, ‘Pinky would have been happier if she had her brother alive, she doesn’t have anybody to play with her when you go to school!’

Ahalya gave a big smile and asked me to follow her. She took me to her room and asked me to look into a box kept at a corner. I went near the boxed and peeped in. Wow! Pinky’s mom had plans for her! Three brand new kittens! Ahalya had arranged a box and a cloth for Pinky’s mom and siblings.

“Wait for one more week. They will open their eyes and play with Pinky!”, Ahalya was too excited about her new friends. They were beautiful and colorful, sleeping peacefully with their mom. I did not want to disturb them. I took some quick shots and kept my camera inside the bag.

As I was leaving the house, I told Ahalya, ‘next time when I come, I will take all of them with me’.

This time Ahalya did not get angry! She was smiling, ‘last time you had told you would take Pinky next time, and you are not taking her now. I know you just lie!!’ :)

This blog is all about sharing my photographs and experiences with the world. Here are some random shots from my initial clicking days, with a very basic point-and-shoot camera, a tiny Sony cyber shot one. While this is my first post in this Photography blog, I thought I would start with posting what I started with. Simply, for my pleasure.. :)
