Photographer's Note

"FREE LIKE A BIRD"_MAY BE THIS IS THE MOST USED PHRASE IN HUMAN LIFE. IF ASKED, EVERYONE DESIRES TO BE A BIRD IN THE NEXT BIRTH. SO DO I. AND HENCE I TRIED TO CAPTURE THAT VERY MOMENT WHEN THE BIRD JUST STARTED ITS FLIGHT.EVERY TIME I SEE THIS PHOTOGRAPH IT REFLECTS THAT PERHAPS THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME TO BREAK ALL THE POLITICAL & SOCIAL CHAINS & SET MYSELF FREE.

BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENT SIDE OF THIS PHOTOGRAPH WITH A TINGE OF HOLY SPIRIT IN IT. ACTUALLY THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN AT THE BANK OF RIVER GANGES IN HARDWAR. IT WAS DURING THE SACRED OCCASION OF "MAHA KUMBHA".FOR MY FRIENDS OUTSIDE INDIA LET ME DESCRIBE VERY SHORTLY WHAT KUMBHA IS & ITS RELIGIOUS IMPORTANCE.

ITS A SACRED OCCASION OF HINDUS BUT DIFFERENT PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT CASTE & SECT PARTICIPATE IN IT. IT IS CELEBRATED ONCE IN 12 YEARS.IT IS HELD IN 3 OTHER PLACES EXCEPT HARDWAR.IT IS BELIEVED THAT IF YOU TAKE A DIP IN THE GANGES DURING THIS TIME ALL YOUR SINS WILL BE WASHED OUT.

PERHAPS THIS BIRD IS ALSO AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS AUSPICIOUS OCCASION.SO AFTER TAKING A HOLY DIP IT IS AGAIN READY TO START ITS JOURNEY TOWARDS THE ETERNITY.......
