Chembra Peak, Wayanad, Kerala
This peak is a lesser known place but a beautiful place for trekking and a short 4km mountaineering . The most beautiful part of it is the presence of a naturally formed lake in shape of ‘Love’ which is regarded as a popular spot for Valentine’s day celebration. The rough terrain and presence of elephants and Fox can sometimes pose dangers after visiting time.
Do you know that the beautiful part of being a freelance photographer is travelling day after day to most exotic places close to what nature has created. We are thus exposed to close proximity of nature than anybody else.
I love the part when I have seen a new perspective for a photo which is quite enough to quench my thirst for creativity. Apart from being a natural enthusiast my attention on wildlife photography turned upside down after I sought pleasure in experimenting with social photography quite too often these days. Thus the amount of travel I have taken last year has significantly gone down. But this year I managed to take two trips out of which one was just a leisure trip with my college-mates and the other was a single trip on to the hills and I quite feel so happy to be back in my old comfort zones.Here what makes me feel like a free flying bird is that nobody questions your authority or approach apart from the nature which quite often test you with its majestic peaks and wilderness.
It’s been 2 years since my last trip to the forest district of Wayanad in southern India and my enthusiasm was rather high. But my expectations were soon down in vain as to what the forest district have turned into. The wildlife has gone down, temperature has risen, rise of human intervention in forest life have completely dissimated the image of nature and rise of artificiality is visible everywhere. I could not find happiness anywhere and feels so disturbed even with my sleep.
Was there a cry somewhere..Who knows ..As the midnight approached somewhere I could hear a cry that only few could understand, a cry to go back to past. As sleep slowly engulped me I could here a voice somewhere asking me
I photographed this image few days ago and the universal meaning of the family it highlight is quite powerful and significant in the current world scenario where the existence of family is impugned.
All around the world lakhs of families are torn apart in different social situations stretching from much common generation gap issues to much more of an intensified and complicated war like in Syria where an estimated 6.1 million people are displaced. It is seen that the families are torn apart with dozens of children reported to be separated away from their families and yet not to be found. It is reported that lakhs of orphaned children are roaming the streets of refugee camps in neighbouring countries.Here the families are torn apart in a game of power play that have made men go insane despite having the thorough knowledge of what they are doing.
Simply saying “a situation when education have no meaning and all men are barbarians and a world craving for yet another moses”.
Apart from this there are those families out there that are torn apart due to some small issues. These are quite common all around the world and quite clearly unbalance the childhood of the children. Children growing up with their parents separated and a childhood spend without the love and care of parents will seriously affect the children in their future. Majority of the rise in mental illness and depression are the results of such an alienated childhood. Also many parents in last few decades have lost their way half through and resulted in deciding not to have children because they are not sure whether they could handle children along with their jobs and keeping in pace with the time.This is much more of a common trend these days that resulted in many issues around the world such as fall in population and unequal sex ratios. Simply concluding by saying that nowadays people have lost sight of the significance of having a family because of so called “Pressure and lack of sureity on whether they could look after the family”. Although I am quite happy with my family despite having so called ‘pressures’ .
Finally by saying all this I have a question for you ??
What is it family mean to you???
It is said that god created this world in 6 days and then rested on the 7th day.
It is also said that there are 7 wonders in this world.
And also there exist 7 colors in a rainbow.
And so on….. and if i keep on making the significance of 7 i will have to spend 7 days of a week just only to do so. Similarly like 7 every number has its own significance and its own uniqueness .Since the blog is all about 7 , i am going to put forward 7 questions for the readers which are quite easy if you consider the question in a less intriguing way.OK! THEN.. LET’S ROLE …
QUESTION 1 :Life is too short to tolerate _________?
QUESTION 2 :Which is the most happiest place in the world?
QUESTION 3 :If you can make just a 3 word speech to entire world what would you say?
QUESTION 4 :When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
QUESTION 5 :Why do pizza comes in Square boxes?
QUESTION 6 :How can you lift an elephant with one hand?
QUESTION 7 : What question can never be answered “Yes”?

These days some models act’s like this..They try relatively very hard to bring everything in and the picture do will look like this way before editing starts…
Modelling is passion for many out there… Everybody love to show off their presence in front of a camera…Creating a presence all over a frame is something that is exceptionally hard to come by these days and we need to do a lot of preplanning and preparations to make it happen succesfully. Sometimes it’s really fun working and sometimes it’s really frustrating when things won’t turn out to be as what we have anticipated.
Even everything goes very well and after we have set everything up and ready to go we may sometimes stumble upon on a serious problem with none other than the model itself.That is sometimes we come across certain models out there who are not at all be eye catchy in any manner but love to do shoots and turning them down from doing so be bad for our business. In those certain situations we needed to bring in extra inputs soon after the shoots to make the frame looks stunning and completely different and plainly saying it’s a hell of a job.
But while doing certain shoots we come across certain people having the gift of beauty that simply be worth photographed again and again. These people could bring out the emotions and feeling to their face without much needed efforts and the naturalism which is present after all will help in receiving some stunning pictures.
It’s the talent or a gifted ability something certain people tend to have in their life and they do make them unique.
Finally it’s 2017 ..Happy New Year to all..
The year started as promising as usual with the same old promises,false resolutions and sham political agendas.Netas woke up early to create a agenda for the year practising the all new strategies to plan for the year. Political conspiracies and plain lies are promised to be unvarying trend that is to be continued this year likewise.
The pundit’s claim that Rahulji’s latest trip to London is said to mastermind another political bomb against Modiji.Since every single one of the previous bombs have failed to explode questions remains on who really holds the trigger in opposition. Also 2017 promises to be a self evaluating year for Congress in basis of forthcoming assembly elections. The BJP on otherhand will continue to push the game with the idea of Modiji’s cashless economy .Despite few unrest last year BJP do hope to have a greater gain in the assembly elections and they have already set an eye on UP elections and the ongoing conflict inside SP will do favour BJP in UP. Whatsoever BJP will receive their answers on move for demonitisation through elections.
Another key point to focus is on the union budget presentation on the post demonitisation era and its own influence on elections and subsequent changes in political circle.Also for the first time in history the railway budget which was merged will only be presented within general budjet.There will also be the implementation of the GST Bill which on behalf will reform the tax system of the country and therefore turn the economy of country under the narrative ‘one country,one tax’.Internationally in 2017 India will have to face quite challenging situations on the policy front dealing with Pakistan and China and their push towards Economic corridor. Also the unrest in the middle East and of rise of various new alliances do surely measures India’s international stand on various issues. Eventually the ascend of Donald Trump to the most powerful post in the world will influence and measure the Indo-US relationship.Despite Trump having a positive stand about India questions still remains on various issues including US stand on Pakistan and of the new tax and immigration policies and its influence on India and Indians.

Please watch and share this video ..
The best thing that I have ever done in my life was done few days ago and I feel so happy to share it through this blog.
It’s Christmas and we a group of students from the college decided to do something that we have never tried out before.It was something that made us beleive that inside all of us there exist some goodness which is the real godly presence that on proper usage can make your life much better than never before .We have tried and succeded in extending our hands to help the homeless poor in the street here in Kochi and we do all felt the perfect happiness once we finished the task we intended to do.The smile on their face is enough to make your Christmas happier than ever before.I really find it happier giving away to these homeless people with food,water and clothes who dearly need them like any other humanbeing .As part of the plan we do also filmed few of those many reactions we received prior to giving away things to poor and finally we made out a short video so as to bring in awareness and inspiration to the people to do the same.
If I can change
U can change
Everybody can change
#check the video for reaction we had made out .. I beleive it can inspire you …
These words by Morgan Freeman in the film “Evan Almighty” just inspired me every single time I watched the movie. More than a dialogue, it do have a very peculiar significance of creating a close connection to our own life and to a question on how we can change the world or atleast our own world?
We all fall in traffic jams and traffic signals in our day to day life and we quite feel agitated waiting in such situation sitting back in your air-conditioned private cars or cabs.In those particular situations we quite often see homeless people most probably children wandering through the cars banging at window’s trying to sell something or even sometimes begging.In case if you haven’t seen that I probably suggest you to take your eye’s out of the smartphone for a moment and look around.You may surprisingly see a child trying to sell you cheap plastic pens for 5 rupees each.Since you have your own highly expensive pen in your pocket most of you will surely refuse to buy the cheaper one.But in that moment in case if you buy few pens for the sake of the child I may ask you to look into the face of the child and in there you can see a reaction ,a beautiful reaction that can make your day wonderful….
That is “One act of random kindness at a time” can bring in something that was not there before…
if you say a No, nothing will happen and the day will go on but If you say a Yes, it may bring in a change to someone’s life
Finally finishing my silly thoughts I just can tell you that,
If I can change
You can change
Everybody can change.
NB : We guys here are planning to giveaway stuff to homeless for Christmas…So we are basically starting a social movement for the year #christmas_with homeless
So please share and make it a success in social media and make this Christmas grand for all of us …
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
After much long waiting and anticipation I finally saw this movie few hours ago and in a quick remark I could say that it just only exceeded the average bench mark.
JK Rowling classic Harry Potter is still a long way ahead and fantastic beast do lack the clarity to fill in with its ancestors. Though the presence of a story dealing with excellent portrayal of 1930s lifestyles, stunning graphics and the promise for a sequel proves to be the positive aspects of the movie.It do well with technical aspects but do lack depthness in storyline.For those who are immersed in Harry Potter world especially through books I may say you may feel down with lack of magical world in it.In overall I would rate the movie
…ഉറുമ്പുകൾ ഉറങ്ങാറില്ല കാരണം അവരതു നടിക്കുക മാത്രം ചെയ്യുന്നു…
കാലങ്ങളായി ഭദ്രമാക്കി ഒളിപ്പിച്ചു വെച്ച പലതും ഒറ്റരാത്രി കൊണ്ടല്ലെ തകർന്നടിഞ്ഞത്… ഇപ്പോഴോ കഷ്ടപ്പെട്ട് പൂതി വെച്ചതൊക്കെ തപ്പിയെടുക്കണ്ടേ അവസ്ഥയും. നാട്ടിലെ ഉറുമ്പുകൾ പലതും നെട്ടോട്ടമോടുന്നുണ്ടെങ്കിലും കൂടെ ഓടാൻ സാധാരണക്കാരെയും കൂട്ടുപിടിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട് .ഒറ്റരാത്രി കൊണ്ടു എല്ലാവർക്കും നല്ല ഒരു പണികൊടുത്തിട്ടു നേതാവ് ജപ്പാനിലേക്ക് പോവുകയും ചെയ്തു.ഇല്ലായിരുന്നെങ്കിൽ ഡല്ഹിയിലേക്കോ മറ്റോ ഒരു ജാഥാ നടത്തി കയ്യിലുള്ളതൊക്കെ ചിലവാക്കാമായിരുന്നു. ഇനിയിപ്പോ അതും നടക്കില്ലതാനും.
