Horny Pleasures III

Horny Pleasures IV

India is a sexually repressive society. It is not easy to find a sex partner. Fortunately soft porn Hindi films* provide some solace to baser instincts.

Plane Watching

Plane Watching

Pity those poor folks sitting inside the plane. They missed the thrill which these two kids experienced while watching it lift off from Delhi's Palam airport runway.

Bazaar Security

Bazaar Security

Delhi is always prone to terrorist attacks. Here in Sarojini Nagar Market (a place which did witness a deadly bomb attack few years back) a police-walla looks for possible suicide bombers in a bazaar bylane full of evening shoppers.

The Baby Market

The Baby Market

Delhi's Shankar Market is situated just beyond the Outer Circle of Connaught Place shopping arcade. But it could have been as well named Mini CP. With mini CP-style corridors, mini pillars (white in color,of course), mini showrooms, it suffers from a great CP hangover.

Sitar Concert in a Piano Shop

Sitar Concert in a Piano Shop

This picture, taken at a more-than-hundred-year old Connaught Place showroom in Delhi, is dedicated to Maria Irod of Bucharest.

Holy Kitchen

Holy Kitchen

Bangla Sahib Gurudwara is a Sikh temple in Delhi but anyone with any caste or religion can go in, pay respects to the holy book, and have a clean, satisfying meal, made lovingly by pious people, in the langar. Everyone, rich or poor, is served humbly and expected to leave only after they have eaten to their heart’s content.

Indeed, there are very few holy places in the capital which are so welcoming to people of all faiths.

Breaking News Boy

Breaking News Boy

This young man has a tough job. In the heat and humidity of a Delhi August, he runs from this place to that to cover events as they happen. There are many rival news channels in the city, the competition is tough and he has to be constantly on his toes to be the first. In exchange, he has to hear the general crib about the "news-hungry, intrusive, insensitive media-wallas."

Happy Childhood

Happy Childhood

Please do not feel pity for this happy child. He does not go to school and in fact sell balloons to rich people's children; yet he is looking so happy in life. Or is it the samosa he is having with tomato sauce?

Busy Hour

Busy Hour

A busy bazaar corridor in Delhi; busy people passing by; busy business hours ticking in the busy wrist watches; everyone just too busy to notice a baby-mother duo sleeping on the floor.

Sweet Sleep


Shhh…somebody* is sleeping…
