Port of Call

A Certain Slant of Light Photography

PSA, or the Port of Singapore Authority, is one of the leading port operators in the world. It played a vital role in Singapore’s marine trade handling industry, which is a crucial part of the country’s economy given its size and lack of natural resources. One case study which frequently popped up during my university days was how PSA pioneered the use of information technology in its quest for efficiency. One of these involved how the containers are stacked together, and the most efficient way to locate and unstack them for shipping. Looking at the scale of these containers, I can only imagine how daunting the process must have been.

But hey, repeating patterns!

CP (take2)

*and action*
Just yesterday, I was waiting at Connaught place for a cousin. I had as always arrived on-time, but the cousin being a Delhite and all, arrived a good 30 mins late. But I did made good of
the loitering

No matter how poor Indians get, we always make sure we have time to watch a destitute mannequin get his pants changed.

Also did find this national flag there in the CP roundabout. I think we have contracted the American disease of putting flags for public notice.


This thing is not as small as it looks:


This is what happens when you make a panorama in portrait-mode with shaky hands.


And some frail old buildings; I’d like to know the reason why they are being kept alive. It’s most likely a legal tussle I presume.






Suarez, you asshole!



Bus in the rain

Bus in the rain

Felt torn at this moment as it came screeching to a halt at the bus stop nearby.
Half of me wanted to be motorbiking in the rain.
The size-able rest wanted wanted nothing but the book-in-hand , the cup of tea and the condiments at hand. It was like those in management circles say, win-win.

I want to sink into a plush couch with a promise of the long summer vacations that the Indian summer bestows on school children; a tumbler of lime juice in hand, the sweet drum roll of 21st century Fox heralding a riveting movie and the sheer joy of inventing cricket strategies for the evening game in the gully.


Blah again




It’s a public holiday today in South India. It seems the birds are having a better time than me.





Mixed bag


Three months of Delhi, and now Bangalore. Will miss the process of growing plump on awesome food. Hello, reckless freedom.


Snapseed’s filters at work. Surprised and amazed.


Jaane Kahaan hai

Getting maps from the stationery store is a frequent exercise among students in Delhi. At least, it was when I was kid.

My favorite was a map which had the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal in cool blue, land boundaries in shades of grey and this particular one had a smooth finish. No print bloopers for me.In  fact, I just saw a scrappy , cheaper version a few minutes back.

I long to find that haughty, police-inspector’s-hat, we called the state of Jammu & Kashmir, high in the air. Our country is probably to get its boundaries altered without its permission, without being overthrown. All while I was getting ready for a lifetime of steady monthly income.

20% supercharge

This now, could mean electricity to 1 billion people(roughly 20% of the existing human race) on this planet who are without it.
In short, this device could be used to store electricity from varied input sources – car batteries, power grid, mechanical actions (cycling) etc. Outputs are in the form of USB exit points and it comes with a magnetic-base torch for immediate utility.

Funny part is, this video is not available on the website of the Artefact studio itself.
Anyhow, can’t wait for this.

That overwhelming tranquility of watching metal knot under the rumbling skies. Add to it the smell of rotting iron and the impending rain, and I wished I was a triped

He said to me, “You should probably crop the man and his derriere out of MY frame. It’s ruining the composition. The nice texture I have on my fur now *whimper*..I’m giving you your favorite sad puppy expression. *whimper* *whimper*”

I thought for a while and shot back with my favorite one-liner excuse for a leave of absence, “Severe cold and headache. Sorry. Not today.”

Me: “How about a small role in Men in Black 4, though ?”

He: * wags his tail *

Stupid dog. Little does he know that I’m just a codie.
