The end of the calendar year always brings about a feeling of nostalgia, a moment for introspection on the year that went by, and hope for the coming dawn in the new year. My year has been a mixed bag with some personal triumphs and professional achievements tempered by the sobering reality of bereavements in the immediate family and a continuing quest for the perfect recipe for contentment with the lot one has been given. I have also seen my son grow up another year and tried to experience the world through his eyes and revel in the minutiae.
As a photographer, I started out 2013 resolving to devoting more time on developing my hobby and sharing these through my blog here and the other place (that which must not be named – FaceBook!!). In this I have been partly successful (life’s commitments get in the way) and there is so much to learn in the coming year.
So here’s wishing everyone a very happy, peaceful and successful 2014. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting and liking my posts!!!
The Jantar-Mantar is a cluster of 18th century astronomical instruments that formed an observatory for observing the celestial skies in Delhi. These were built by the Maharajah of JaipurJai Singh II. Today these buildings sit as an ochre and green oasis in the centre of New Delhi.
