I was not aware nor were you
And silence was the only word.
THANK YOU ALL MY FAMILY, FRIENDS, FANS & FOLLOWERS for being there for me. It was an enormous support from you. Its been two years now that Keep Picturing came in existence and today it is growing day by day. The thought of sharing my photographs came to my mind couple of years back when I was not confident about sharing my work. But today without hesitation I can do that. I never knew the wordpress community will accept and encourage my work so positively, it gave me confidence to keep sharing and keep picturing. I have my board filled with a great intellectual bloggers. You’ve all been a wonderful audience. Each comment on each photograph is learning curve for me. Keep Commenting as your feed backs matter and makes me grow. Here, I would like to take an opportunity and thank my three wonderful bloggers and of course to WordPress; because this place helped me to find them. Kendall F. Person of (http://thepublicblogger.com/) – KP is from California and a public blogger. He was the person who asked to share my work on his blog, even though I was too new here (The Neighborhood Show); which later helped me groom my skills and art. Thank you Brother for your undivided support. Love you Brother. Anne T. Bell of (http://talesalongtheway.com/) – She is from New York. A wonderful wordsmith; India lover; Mr. Modi’s Manager (You know what I’m saying Anne. Right!). I have no words how to describe how incredibly our relation grew over the time. Come Soon to India.

My first solo trip. Let me share a little bit about it. I’m walking down the streets of Darjeeling, looking around and finding newness in everything. Though the place is new for me, I can totally relate to it’s streets and colorful houses. It resembles exactly to those line houses I drew as a child on walls of my room. House with the roof top and chimney, sun rising from middle of two mountains and river passing by. Ain’t that a beautiful scenario to wake up to everyday! (P.S. : Also having famous Darjeeling green Chai is like living my own childhood drawings.). Every brick here tells me a tale. They tell me how long they have been here on the streets of Darjeeling. It is like they have aged under the warm sun, cool breeze, soft snow and the chilled rain of the city. The more it ages the more it blooms. Compared to my city this city is peaceful. No race. No rush. Everywhere I see, there is gradient. Either up or down. There is no straight. At one such gradient I looked up an saw this beautiful brick house with an elegant woman standing at the window wearing their tradition gown. I saw her elegance and now I can’t stop looking at her. She gave me a smile while I could not help but notice her beautiful eyes and pink blush-y cheeks. A moment later she disappeared and even I left. For next couple of days the route with the brick house became my mandatory route the further exploration; I looked up daily to the window but could not find her. I know, she will come out and give that smile again.

At the end of pavement a poor lady is selling colorful smiles to other kids; just to feed a piece of chapati to her own child.
