Weird??

weird

Its surprising how we notice things at times. These were a few rejects that were left aside and it did appear a little naughty at first.

A small rally!

democracy

A week ago we had elections in the city. A lot of new players, new strategies. The person in the flag is a megastar(Chiranjeevi) and has created his party(Prajarajyam, meaning democracy) only recently. Remains to be seen if he wins peoples hearts in a new arena. Will the famed movie-politics nexus be a surefire formula to success?

These kids in the frame, I’m sure wouldn’t have payed their part this time,  and wouldn’t be able to do so till they turn 18.

Sweet and how?

mangoes

Its that time of the year, when the streets are lined up with vendors of these delicious fruits. No matter what the fruity, mazaa, slice ad campaigns say they can never come close to the real thing.

Thoughtful

This image was shot a week or so before blasts at Hyderabad. It was indeed scary to realise that terror could strike anytime and no one was really immune to it.

An artist and his pet performer.

sohan_lal_small1

Sohan Lal is my favourite performer at Shilparamam. He has so much of  infectious energy and enthusiasm. He is one of those rare people who has no teeth and still wears a heartwarming smile.  He makes the puppets dance to his wife’s dholak beats. He was telling me he had the whole range of puppets from Shivaji, Maharaja Rana Pratap Singh and Shah Jahan as well. And to perform the whole show for 2 hrs by 3 artists would cost 5000 . He claims this art form to be handed over for thousands of generations (from tretha yug, in his own words)

Also, this is not technically a Hyderabadi shot. Maybe Rajasthani or Gujarati. But thanks to establishments like Shilparamam who promote art forms from various regions all over India, one is able to enjoy appreciate and also patronise such dying arts.
