The most crowded Indian city

From Palms to Alms

A visual narration of the story of an old minted coin in the Indian context. 

How an old minted coin whose value almost insignificant to a well of person journeys from his palm and ends up as alms to a poorer person for whom the seemingly insignificant denomination holds a greater value in life than that of the coin’s former possessor. And the fate of the coin, the possessor and the beggar bound together tightly by strings of religion hinting at the socio-economical divide in our country.

Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.

"Houston, we’ve had a problem”

A photo essay to mark the 44th anniversary of NASA’s finest hour.

Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the Apollo space program and the third intended for a lunar landing. The craft was launched on April 11, 1970 from the Kennedy Space centre, Florida, but the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded two days later on April 13th, crippling the Service Command Module. Despite great hardship caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of potable water, and the critical need to jury rig the carbon dioxide removal system, the crew tested and stretched to their physical and mental limits returned safely to Earth on April 17.

Also dubbed as a ‘successful failure' and 'NASA’s finest hour’, the Apollo 13 accident has been a landmark and a subsequent benchmark in manned space exploration history from which we have learned, improved upon and has redefined our understanding of words like hardship and dedication.

And the rigorous, incessant endeavour and will to succeed and survive on the part of the crew: James A. LovellJohn L. “Jack” Swigert and Fred W. Haise, who till date account to the set of the bravest men alive.

Cheap Trick and a Cheesy One Liner

Ever since I saw Ironman 3, I had thought of doing the book cover design for Tony Stark’s autobiography. Finally got the time for it.

Et viola !!

Still working on the content though.

Sanskrit Scroll

Word meanings of a few unique descriptive adjectives denoted to the seraphic characters of Indian Epics and the oldest literary chronicles in the world like Mahabharata, Ramayana, Puranas, Vedas and Upanishad

Following the oral recitation and transmission of these accounts dating well before 2nd century BCE, these tales finally resolved into written form in Sanskrit by 200 BCE and has carried on till date as the oldest, lengthiest and the most important literature throughout the Indian subcontinent. Ancient sculptures, art forms, paintings, folklores, architecture, music, dance forms, dressing styles, the entire religious and social structure of south and south eastern Asia, has come into being majorly because of the fore-mentioned chronicles. And they still do remain the most consequential volumes of literature and source of inspiration for believers and atheists alike.

Contrary to popular belief, I know exactly what I’m doing.
