It really amused how certain photographers used aerochrome films to breathe tragic life into their photos. Although getting your hands on Kodak aerochrome is nearly impossible, images can be treated to somewhat resemble the outcome of these infra-red films.
Let's start by saying this; the following may not apply to 99 percent of you out there. And i truly hope that it doesnt. Some of you may find yourselves beyond this miser prophecy; and most of you will read past in absolute denial. But certain facts remain as solid as mathematical equations that do not…Read more 5 signs that you’re wrecked beyond repair

My lifelong dream to visit the best part of the Himalayas. Destroyed by daily routine and mind-numbing monotony, a few of us took a trip to Nepal. It wasn't about seeing sights and climbing mountains; we took our time to do nothing. Finally.
Every year, I hear the mountains calling. Last year, it was Dharamsala, the monsoon soaked home of the Dalai Lama. This is not about my trip to Dharamsala; but the drive back to Amritsar.
