i was busy enjoying the morning sky, this is Coorg, simply gazing, took only a few pictures and i did not even bother to turn around and look. i think i lost most of it.

First thing i did was get all the kids, they were excited,
there are two..... there are two.... can you see that ?
ooo ! uncle uncle the first one is getting deleted
What language !
i wondered what could be a better word, erased or disappearing ?
Half of it disappeared behind the trees
If we go to the fields we can get the full rainbow uncle, one boy said
by then the whole thing would be deleted, the other boy said.
they all wanted to see the image on the screen, i had shown them their pictures the day before
i said i'll show you later, don't miss watching the sky now. enjoy it.

i forgot all their names, any way i'll be going to Coorg again, they are all related to me, don't know how, they say i have taken pictures of their parents when they were young.
i don't remember anything.

    rauf, I'll never forget once I saw a double rainbow like this driving home from work. I stopped and went crazy clicking away. These are so stunning. That first one looks like a painting with 100 different colors. The gray and orange and gold are just magnificent.

    Oh cute little babies! Some so serious, trying to look grown up. Mr. Gray collared shirt, Mr. Elvis hair, so serious. I see myself as a girl in little yellow shirt half smile. You saved the precious photo for last. She wants me to touch up her fingernails. Such a sweet, happy, innocent face.

    They clearly all love Uncle Rauf.

    Laila, You have terrific imagination. But please focus on your studies

    Ruth, i was not aware of what was behind me. i would have missed it completely. i heard a strange sound of a bird, not pleasant, thought it was a peacock.
    i turned and saw this splendour.

    the kids were with me for the whole day asking all sorts of questions. i keep discovering myself while answering them.

    "i keep discovering myself while answering them."

    It doesn't get better than that.

    Your posts take so much time to come up that many times I feel like going back. Please do something about it. I know pictures take hell of a time.

    But then when I see the pictures, I smile just like I am doing now. :))

    But still pls do something abt it. Maybe you can have lesser pictures on the main page.

    Ruth, little girl in the last picture and the boy first on the first row were the most inquisitive. Kept eating my brain.
    It was fun.
    Do you pray ?
    i said no
    what is your 'zaat' meaning religion
    i asked what is the religion of the cow behind you
    'nothing' religion the boy said, not one bit confused.
    my religion is same as the cows religion i said, have you seen a cow pray ?
    boy said no, the girl said yes i have seen a cow pray,
    where ?
    infront of the mosque it was screaming

    Cuckoo, thanks. most of the posts here and 'Daylight Again' contain pictures. Can't do much about that. Besides i have two more blogs which you'll find at the top of the links PORTRAITS and PASSION GREEN which are nothing but pictures. I compress and reduce the file size of each picture for quicker loading at the cost of the quality. All the pictures are of lowest possible quality.
