No! You Do Not Need A DSLR!!

Every day, literally thousands of people are entering the field of photography, let it be hobby or profession. Bottom line is everyone wants to taste the sweet word “Photographed by XYZ”. It sounds cool! It is something that is “happening” profession these days and as it happened with engineers, web developers and content writers, this is just another bubble getting ready to be taken away by some other profession as soon as it burst.

Camera companies have made it so damn easy! Have $400 (Rs.22000/-) to spare? Go and buy yourself a professional looking DSLR! Amazing thing is these little […] Continue Reading…

A remote button to shut my mouth!

So this what happened today. Me and my mom were discussing something when she heard some noise outside and out of no where she took the TV remote, pointed at me and tried to lower down my volume. I didn’t notice until she started laughing as she was about to ask me why my volume is not getting down.

Now what happened was whenever she wants to talk to me or check about the noise outside she lower downs the TV volume and that time only I was talking so out of habit she did the same with me! Be it be […] Continue Reading…

Yes, I am fat and I am ashamed of it!

Well who knew! Yes, I am obese and I am the clown who walks everyday on the road. The walking is not because I want to lose weight but I walk because I love walking. Yes, being obese and walking is not like eating cupcake. It hurts. No, it does not hurt my legs, ankles or knees but it hurts my feelings.

Few months back I shifted from sector 43 to sector 21 Chandigarh. I was really happy that I can simply walk to the mobile/photo market in sector 22 where I get most of my work done including editing […] Continue Reading…

A start

First of all, this is not to hurt either a theist or atheist. These are going to be just my views. Everyone is welcome to comment but I would prefer to avoid any hate comment or hate words. Just keep it simple and understandable for everyone.

I am a believer. I believe in existence of the power that can control once existence but where exactly I stand on this? I am very clear about some facts of life.

Science is important – Interestingly, more I tried to learn about present ‘holy’ figures’, more I understand the importance of science and scientific […] Continue Reading…
