what is it to be old and grey,
whey there is love in your eyes
a sparkle on your lips
and such amazing grace?

the cat

what makes you so content mr. cat?
what's your purpose in life, don't you worry about that?
how are you planning to catch your next rat?

you seem so sure of your place under the sun.
you don't seem to be keen to impress any one.

how i admire your style,your poise.
you've so much class and yet, make no noise.

the taj mahal hotel, mumbai before nov.26, 2008

img source: Taj images

this is how the taj once was. before the terrorists tried to bring it down.

why is destruction so much easier than creation? so much quicker? why does it call for the baser human emotions.?

the taj will stand again. mumbai will stand again. stronger. and more vigilant. my city weeps. my city cries. my city prevails. god bless mumbai.

the blue kitchen

check out this old, spacious traditional kitchen. at the end of the raised platform sit the gods. the cupboards are built-in with a netted cover to prevent insects entering. the floors are cool, black, stone.
