My journey of Udaipur City...

Udaipur the City of beautiful tranquil water Lakes and the City of Dawn is one of the most naturally beautiful cities on the planet earth. The rich cultural, social and natural heritage, aesthetic beauty and ecological richness, so far preserved through the surrounding lakes, serene and opulent hilly range of the Aravalis and lush green vegetation and pleasant gardens and harmonious built forms present a unique condition of scenic beauty. The magical beauty of this Lake Pichola allures the visitors again and again.

Udaipur, or rather Mewar, being one of the oldest kingdoms in the region, continues to instill even today a sense of pride among its people. Udaipur is a historic city and part of ancient Capital City of glorious Mewar of Maharana Pratap. Udaipur is also well known as The Venice of East, another Kashmir of India, and it offers one of the widest ranges of cultural heritage. Udaipur, by virtue of its interconnected lakes, has a large water retaining capacity. The lakes, mountains and the habitat of the city present an excellent example of harmony between the nature and the built environment.


Found her walking in the crowd ... during Hariyali Mela.

The words are at the tip of my tongue.
I desire to speak, to express myself.
But, my strength is beneath me.
Instead, I slip away mysteriously.

Little Boy and His Truck

Little boys and their toys go together
like clouds in the sky make up the weather
A little billy truck out the back
is now a grand racing car on the track
The circle of life goes round and round
the next generation has toys their father never found
Little boys and their toys will never part
they just keep going on and on...

An Old Man

I'll tell you who I am . As I sit here so still...
Inside this old carcass a young guy still dwells,
And now and again my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys, I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living life over again.
I think of the years, all too few gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people open and see.
Not an old man. Look closer and see ME!!

He sits Alone

He sits there alone daily
Just wishing for someone
To take the time from their busy day
But night falls and there are none.

Her Little Man

Mother and Son always share a special bond together...
Let me come along
for the ride and I will
watch you spread your
wings and fly.

Just Another Day at Work

He walks down the lane with basket on his head.
It's just another day at work.

That Smlle

Upon her face sits that smile .. the twinkle in her eyes gives way to the secret held inside.

A Woman's Eyes

Her Eyes Will Always and ever be….

The reflection of her soul
Vision of her essence
The window to her heart of gold
The acme of Quintessence...

Her Gaze

Her Gaze so fierce, one glance will pierce. Peering in her eye had taken its toll, but nothing i could do since she's in control. In that moment she made time freeze. Then came her words, and my heart nearly seized. Believe this is true, although she may not. I quickly realized her eyes were fiery hot. Her eyes flared with passion when she gave a smirk. But deeper in her eyes I saw happiness and hurt...

Old Age

I used to think that growing old was reckoned just in years.. But who can name the very date when weariness appears?
