Sparrow Day

Today is Sparrow day on this occasion I would like to present a photograph taken in our campus at our farmhouse, feeling proud we still have same no. of sparrows at the place since years. Sometimes they do have fun with water. This picture is taken by my 8 year old son Arya. This is very serious that these tiny birds are vanishing from our cities and villages.

Path to Jahagirdarwadi

Path, way to Jahagirdarwadi wadi, maharashtra

Towards the village

“Path to Jahagirdarwadi”, This village is based at the base of Mount Kalsubai, the highest pick in Maharashtra, India. We were heading for our monsoon trek, I along with Adil, Santosh & Ganesh. On our way when we reached this beautiful village, here it was raining heavy, wind was blowing whistle at the maxim level. This beautiful frame was curvy road, homes behind were calling me get out of the car and shoot, I never rejects such calls Ganesh gave cover to me and camera and the frame is ready. The water was flowing everywhere, the rice paddy were flowing In such conditions the villagers were busy doing their routine tasks without any modern rain covers.
