Image 1 – A Floating Park
The largest freshwater lake in Northeast India and it is the world’s only Floating National Park with circular floating swamps called as ‘phumdis’. Rich in biodiversity, ecology, flora and fauna. It’s really amazing to see the land with houses floating on water which needs to be preserved to mitigate the serious environmental concerns.
Location: National Floating Park, Bishnupur, Manipur.

A photograph is a Story – Day 11 (Theme- Cognition)

Image 11 – Past Ambage
दिन ढल गये, कई मौसम बदल गये..
ऊम्र ढल गयी और कई अरमान अधुरे रह गये…
जबभी पिछे पलट कर देखता हुं, एक गुजरा हुआ वक्त याद करता हुं…
अब मैं उन सभी यादों को समेटना चाहता हुं…
क्या पता कल फ़िरसे किसी का दामन छोड चलेगी ये जिंदगी..
या किसी को सवांरने चलेगी ये जिंदगी..

A photograph is a Story – Day 9 (Hamadryad)

The World’s Longest Venomous snake also called as Hamadryad means a nymph who lives in a tree and dies when the tree dies. This species of snake is normally peaceful and avoids interaction with other habitats. But becomes highly aggressive if someone tries to mess with their habitat. A perfect example of loyalty and aggressiveness.

A photograph is a Story – Day 6 (Theme – A Shy Bird)

Image 6 – Kingfisher
While trekking in Lonavala I found a colourful bird hiding behind the tree. I quickly rushed towards and started taking snaps from a long distance. This little charming bird was very shying and I was amused by seeing the beauty of expression. After so many requests this “cartoon network” gave me permission to click the picture.

A photograph is a Story – Day 5 (Theme – A symbol of Education)

Image 5 – माझी शाळा / My School
डोंगरावर वसलेली, झाडा-फ़ुलांनी सजलेली
बसायला जमिन आणि खेळायला शेत…
कवेलुचं छत आणि भिंतीला शेणाचा लेप…
स्वच्छ हवा देते जगण्याचं बळ…
आणि ही माती देते शिक्षनाचं बळ…
शोधुनही मिळणार नाही अशी सुंदर शाळा…
माझी शाळा

Located on a hill, surrounded by trees and flowers…
A floor to sit and a farm to play…
Roof made up of mud and wall coated with cow dung…
Fresh Air gives the power to live…
And this soil gives the power of education…
It is difficult to find such a beautiful school…
This is my School…
