Picturesque World has been moved

Picturesque World has been moved. I have decided to post my Travel related potos in my Travel Blog and rest photography related posts will be done in Random Thoughts.

Reason for move: Its tough to maintain 3 blogs regularly and I guess reading so many blogs is not convenient for readers. Its always better to maintain minimum number of blogs for the blogger as well as for the readers.

Another reason is to focus on my other blogs, to keep them moving. Slowly I am getting busier in my career, and it will be hard to post regularly, track and response the comments. Thank you all for your encouragement and appreciating my photos.

Rocky Nature

Today is World's Photography day, and photos of my Meteora trip are a small tribute. See my travel blog for some of the pictures of Meteora. This is a World Heritage site in Greece and a perfect combination of Nature and Creation (Monasteries).

Norway : B&W Nature

My trip to Norway in Nutshell was wonderful, this is one of the image from that one. The original image is posted in my Nutshell Photo Blog. I made it B&W deliberately to focus the white snow and to bring the contrast with the houses.

Back to Greece

I am back to Greece for a shot trip of three months (till OCT). I have been to many countries, but truly speaking Greece is unique for its landscape and natural resources and obviously for the ancient cultural heritage. To me the journey in Mediterranean is the best water trip I have ever had. The islands are wonderful and I am planning to visit some of them.

Eunuch baby dance: A Social Tradion

In my way back home last month I have encountered many different traditions and social hazards of Indian society. In my home town Kharagpur, I have seen a social menace of eunuch (Hizras). They used to go to the house where new baby is born. Dance with the baby, sing songs, perform some rituals and demand for huge money. Its really horrible, as one can not bargain and if not the demand is made, they will create a huge chaos in the locality. What ever it may be, it’s still considered one of the traditions of Indian society.

The picture above is of my niece in our Kharagpur house surrounded by a group of eunuch. After the dance they pray better life of the baby.

Typical Greek Face

Finally back to blogging after few days. Some of my friends asked how beautiful Greeks are. Yes they are indeed typical Aryans, brownish tan in color, usually black hair and heroic look. This is one of my colleague working in a big MNC though very informal in nature, nice as a human being. I love Greek people not for their non racist attitudes, but also for their BINDAS loving and lovely nature.
