"One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs,
Or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls."I love the the feathery clouds over kaleidoscopic sky,the moments of sunrise and sunset, the smell of wet clay just after rain,the sound of turbulent ocean,the serenity of woods.I have this irresistable urge to escape from monotonous life and explore different aspects of life,coz life is short...isn't it??

The Sweep Of Autumn Air
Kashful and Breeze
The time was August-September last year, that is the romantic AUTUMN season was just starting. Blue sky, feathery clouds, and it is the "Kashful" which attracts me the most. People call me crazy as I carry my small camera everywhere I travel, even at my tutions. My passion for photography evoked when I was in my 10th class, but at that time I didn't have a camera. It was when I was in middle of 11th class, that I carried the camera everywhere no matter what people say or my parents rebuke. So while going to and returning from tution cycling, I used to look sideways and make plans of visiting the interesting shooting places in the way. My mom is very strict about my timings so I could utilize only 15-20 minutes in photoshoot while returning from tution. So here I am telling about those two days on which I clicked the pictures of the "Kashful".
DAY 1 : I was returning from my biology tution and had cycled long, so was very tired. The scorching sun was with full power, my skin was burning, but I thought that I would not get such a chance again. And I stopped near the field where a house was being built, beside the house there was a jungle of "Kashful". I stopped my cycle and made it stand nearby and locked it so that it won't get lost. I took my bag on my back and took out my camera and looked sideways if anyone was seeing me. I saw none, and I was relieved !! Then I entered the grass-jungle and took a few shots of the "Kashful". The sun was very scorching, so the exposure was very high. Anyway I was satisfied that I was able to take the shots. Here, have a look...
DAY 2: My satisfaction was not quenched so easily. It was mid-September, and I was returning from my Chemistry tution, I had to return a copy to a friend and I had to cycle much more than 1km from my chemistry tutor's house to my friend's house, it was totally on a different direction. But returning the copy was important, so I had no other choice. Panting, I went to her house and returned the copy. While coming out her house the craziness bit me and I was eager to pant some more!! I cycled some more towards the Highroad which connected four places(stations), I still wonder how much crazy I was that I cycled such a long way to CLICK SOME PICTURES !! I found an isolate place full of grasses longer than my height! And to me it was just like a heaven full of snowy,feathery "Kashful". I wondered that if someone murders me inside this grass-jungle and leaves me dead, none will be able to find out in a few days!!! I also was worried a bit if there was any snake! But I remembered the tagline "DARR KE AAGEY JEET HAI" (victory is before worry) and I went on clicking. Different species of Munia birds were fluttering beside. I thought if I could lie down over the Kashful bunches and sleep...
The Golden Strands
Touching The Sky
I spent almost half an hour there and was fully soaked in perspiration all over my body and hair. While coming out the grass-jungle I sent a Message to my chemistry tutor, a superb photographer himself about my photoshoot :-)
The Best Shots Of That Day
My work for that day was done and suddenly I was feeling very tired and wanted to go home as fast as possible. So I bid good-bye to the beautiful place and came out along the narrow way between the grass..
The narrow way between the grass
So hereby I'm wishing all a very happy Autumn in advance and if possible do spend some time amidst the kashful, it's really amazing :-)
