My entry in response to Cees challenge:



A vacation with family in the backwaters of Kerala….a perfect getaway from the hustle bustle to relax and rejuvenate!


My little one’s maiden attempt at making a beautiful flower rangoli (decoration) for Diwali, a few years back.  The X shape so perfect for this challenge!


Rudraprayag in Uttarakhand is a witness to the conflux of two rivers, Alaknanda and  Mandakini! The sound of the gushing waters and tranquil surrounding is a perfect panacea to soothe a stressful mind!


As the wax melts, the flame dispels darkness and gloom, infusing light and  glow. Isn’t it a great lesson for us to learn in life too?


The exquisite craftsmanship of the artists who must have relentlessly worked for years to build the Grand Palace in Bangkok, is an awe inspiring visual marvel!
