Last day of my photo exhibition.

Today is the last day of my exhibition, A Journey into the Soul of India. I’m both happy and sad. Happy that quite a few have come to look and also happy that I had the courage to do this here at home. Sad that it’s all over.

I’m pleased that I have raised some money for one of the poor groups in India, the brick makers, especially the children.

It feels good to give back to some of the people that have taken their time to talk to me and let me take pictures.

Now I need to sit down and evaluate and see what I could have done differently so that I know until next time if I should decide to do this again.

Dear readers, thanks for your support !

Morning safari

My early morning visit to my drivers temple turned into a safari trip. Monkeys, huge mungo, big parrots, peacocks, goats, buffaloes, horses, mules, camels, birds of all kinds, nilgais, cows, snakes, toads and I’m pretty sure I have missed something but still you get the picture….amazing morning and it was only me and Pawan and the guys living at the temple. Seemed like the Gods knew this was my last visit so they really wanted to show me all the beautiful living creatures out here.

I think we saw more than 150 peacocks and peahens but first time I saw so many dancing at one time.
