Mumbai attacks aftermath pictures

The Frame and The Big Picture has featured series of pictures of people coping with the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai. They are touching. So many lives affected and shattered, really very sad.

I hope that people who have authority and have responsibility would go after those perpetrators, where ever they are. These jihadis should not be shown any mercy as they have not shown to 6yr old kid who was executed before his own parents & many others like him and moreover we should not forget their cruel torture of hostages.

I just wonder whether there would be same amount of coverage in international media, if there were no transnational victims of this jihad.

Mayawati's Arrogance

"NO ONE CAN STOP ME FROM BECOMING PM"...Really???

Mayawati and her supporters seem to think that it is her prerogative to be PM. One's caste should not be entitlement to ask for votes but rather it should be their honesty and competence to lead.

Picture was taken from a moving vehicle, so excuse me for the clarity.

Everyone is so angry with recent terrorist attacks on Mumbai and people are so shocked at the audacity of these terrorists but it was to be expected in absence of any resolute response from our government to their jihad, that is being waged on this country. I hope this time government's response would be sincere to protect Indian lives otherwise they would be underestimating mood of electorate. Anyways, I'm not too optimistic in their judgment & capability.


asian times has interesting article on this incident.

Creatures with no freedom

Chowk(junction) near charminar in hyderabad is famous for various bird sellers. They supply birds to different states and also provide for film shootings & functions. When there is business, It is very lucrative for the people involved. Unfortunately for the birds, it is horrible for being confined in a small area.

Caged

There are too many in a small place

It is sad that these beautiful birds will never truly enjoy freedom.

Parrots in cages Beautiful creature with no freedom!

Most of their lifetime, they are kept in cages, which are generally too small for them.


There was a government ban on birds trading but it was lifted after protests from traders. This is a scene at one of the breeder's place.

Situation in Bihar

Yesterday, The Frame (which is a similar initiative as The Big Picture) has published pictures from flooded areas in India & one village in bangladesh, with the main emphasis on Bihar. It is always easy to be insulated from others suffering, specially when we don't imagine or feel their pain ourselves. In that respect, these pictures help us to see the human suffering and comprehend the magnitude of the disaster which unfolded in these regions. Only if politicians and bureaucrats are not so indifferent towards human suffering and doesn't exhibit their ineptitude, it would had made lot of difference to so many lives and have reduced their pain. I guess, i can only lament and contribute funds to the relief work.

Facing the light

Bee

Composition wise i like this shot but have other pictures, where i can see details on this little guy more clearly. Amazed at what this little cameraphone can do and i think i will be okay with it until i buy something good. When Kodak's 7mp PS camera was hunting for focus, i-mobile had little problem in capturing this shot.

The Big Picture

There is this new blog on Boston Globe called The Big Picture, which tells stories through pictures. Alan Taylor who maintains this blog compiles all images specific to a topic from various sources and presents them in his blog. It has simple yet effective interface, which makes reader's experience even better.

Images of the big picture never seizes to amaze me, today there is a blog entry with beautiful pictures on world's largest cycle race in France.

All his posts are very touching and amazing. Below are few stories to show the brilliance of this blog:

This photo was taken in my house with i-mobile 902 and it was windy.

I decided to wait until PMA 2009 for Canon to release 50D, if not, at least by then price of upcoming 5d replacement will be reduced to some extent.

Amazing social worker

I'm bit skeptical about the media and their ways of creating news but if this is really true, then it is amazing to know that we still have such people left on this planet:

He was walking toward the stairs when a teenage boy approached and pulled out a knife.

"He wants my money, so I just gave him my wallet and told him, 'Here you go,'" Diaz says.

As the teen began to walk away, Diaz told him, "Hey, wait a minute. You forgot something. If you're going to be robbing people for the rest of the night, you might as well take my coat to keep you warm."

In such instances, usually people get angry thinking of their loss but here is a person, who wants to genuinely help this perpetrator and make him realize. Very few people overcome their emotions and think of reasons for a person to risk his freedom for the sake of few dollars. Thats simply amazing!.

Rest of this fascinating story can be read here.

New interest

Last year, I eagerly waited for the release of sonyericsson's K850i mobile phone. I had expectations on imaging capabilities of this phone but it turned out to be complete disappointment. Images taken with K850i are not even comparable to its predecessor, it couldn't even reproduce actual colors of the scene and the images had that washed out look. Well, this made me to look elsewhere and found I-Mobile 902. It has sony's 5mp CCD sensor and it interpolates images upto 8mp. It also has the same sensor which is being used in some Canon digital point and shoot cameras.

Initially, I just wanted to have a phone which has a decent camera and can be taken everywhere without the need of carrying dedicated digital camera around. I wanted such mobile phone which could document my life in pictures but slowly with excellent image quality of i-mobile 902 my interest changed from documenting things to creating pictures.

I seem to have found new interest but photography is darn expensive. Only if K850i wasn't so disappointing camera phone, otherwise i wouldn't had discovered my passion so soon through I-Mobile 902. Anyhow, i must thank sonyericsson for making such a crappy imaging flagship phone, which led me to the realization of my interest for photography. I think, I've out grown I-Mobile 902 and i need better camera and lens for the kind of pictures i wish to capture. I should also keep learning from excellent photographers on flickr & internet.
