What could you do with three million Lego bricks? Build a city of course. At the recently opened Legoland Boston, the highlights are a few of Boston’s iconic buildings, painstakingly assembled with Lego bricks. The attention to detail is amazing and they have captured the main sights including a miniature of Fenway Park filled with […]
Spiderman has become Meera’s big hero since my brother gave her this stuffed Spiderman several months ago. If I ask Meera to drink milk, she retorts, “Does Spiderman drink milk?” One of the best parts of my day is walking Meera to her pre-school. On her walk she gets to see new flowers bloom, hear […]
Amma in Devi Bhava during her Boston visit in 2011. Dates for Amma‘s (Mata Amritanandamayi) Boston tour have been announced and Registration is now open for the Retreat. Here, you can read about my fabulous, life-altering experience with Amma. Hope to see some of you there.
I started the New Year chanting Lokāh Samastāh Sukino Bhavantū at an Amma Satsang. Then after a short nap, drove over to a friend’s and chanted the Hanuman Chalisa, seven times; then walked around Walden Pond. What a beautiful day to experience the magnificent. Walking Yoga, circumambulating the emerald blue stillness. A time to quiet […]
I don’t do weights! But my trainer friends urge me to build muscle tone. “It will help your running,” they argue. I do anything which helps my running.
Fascinating to keep up with this Hawk’s nest. Even after I got back from Mumbai, the Hawk babies were still in the nest. Now the babies are larger and ready to fly out. Also, tragedy. I am updating this older post with new pics as the Hawks grow up. So please visit often. And for […]
June 30th and July 1st, 2010 Of the three chicks, there was the biggest one who started to flex its wings and hop on the railing first. The second one followed within a week. The third was little and 4 weeks late to even flapping its wings. I managed to get them all on the […]
From Park Street outbound to Alewife, the Red-Line T comes above ground at the Charles / MGH station, goes across the Longfellow Bridge and then dips back in the tunnel at MIT. A short snippet of the Boston Skyline taken from the Red-Line as it speeds over the Charles river. The trip between stations takes […]
Since they were infants, I have shot pics of all our friend’s kids. They are a joyous bunch and I love showcasing them. Now, with Meera on the scene, some of my friends wonder if I’ll ever be as passionate about taking their pics. Well, they do have a point :-E| But for now, here […]
The days that used to lie curled up, numbed by penetrating frost, bit by bit stretch out their limbs now that winter’s past. ~ Sri Dharanidhara from Vidyadhara’s Subhaashita Ratnakosha Translated from the Sanskrit by Daniel HH Ingalls, Harvard University Press The original verses were composed between the 8th and 10th century. Vidyadhara probably compiled […]

Last Fall, our friend H asked me to shoot pics of her kids for their holiday greeting. Katrina is such a delight; ever since she was a toddler, every time she saw me she’d run over screaming “alun! alun! alun!” and give me a big hug. And Brandon is such a champ! No doubt I […]
Meet Vibha, darling daughter of our good friends Vandana and Aravind. I shot this pic during a gathering at our friend's place on August 15th. All kids had dressed in traditional garb to celebrate India's Independence Day. Along with her mother and brother they are currently back in Bangalore and Mangalore visiting family. If any […]
Boston's long winter makes me more intimate with treadmills than I care. With winter's grip slowly loosening, I take every opportunity to test my running legs outdoors. Even though we have yet to see 'warm weather', we have had a good number of running days. Thursday last week was just spectacular. The sun was out, […]
