With this picture of a gate leading to the Masjid-i Jahān-Numā, commonly known as the Jama Masjid, in Old Delhi I would like to wish “Ramzan Mubarak” to all my Muslim friends, colleagues and members of my team.
And of course to all of you, Muslims and non-Muslims, who are following my work on internet.

“May this Ramzan bring you the utmost in peace & prosperity.
May lights triumph over darkness.
May peace transcend the earth.
May the spirit of light illuminate the world…”

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

This parrot came at sunset nearby a window of the remains of a madrasa in the Hauz Khas complex in Delhi…

“When pain brings you down, don’t be silly, don’t close your eyes and cry, you just might be in the best position to see the sun shine ”
(Alanis Morissette – Canadian and American singer-songwriter, guitarist and actress, b.1974)

A few hours ago the sun was setting in the sky of Saket in Delhi and I took this simple picture with my new camera (Panasonic DMC-FZ200).
From the terrace where I was standing I could listen to the call to adhan (prayer) from the muezzin of a mosque nearby.
The sun couldn’t be more oriental and in some ways it became full of promise for someone who was sharing this moment with me and is expecting some good news in a few hours…

“Any active sportsman has to be very focused; you’ve got to be in the right frame of mind.
If your energy is diverted in various directions, you do not achieve the results.
I need to know when to switch on and switch off: and the rest of the things happen around that. Cricket is in the foreground, the rest is in the background.
(Sachin Tendulkar – Indian cricketer widely acknowledged as the greatest living batsman, b.1973)

On Sundays Delhiites gather at India Gate cricket Ground in New Delhi where girls, Boys or mixed teams, all dressed in white, are meeting for friendly matches.
You may bring your kit if you have and join a team, some cricketers may also share their bat, ball and wickets with you and you might even be asked to be the umpire.
Of course if you have a French background like mine all this probably won’t make much sense however it will still be a great show and a treat for your camera… 😉

“I could give you no advice but this: to go into yourself and to explore the depths where your life wells forth.”
(From “Letters to a Young Poet (1934)” by Rainer Maria Rilke – Austro-German lyric poet, 1875-1926)

 

This is the Sheesh Gumbad shot from the Bara Gumbad in the Lodi Gardens in Delhi.
During summers walking in this huge park among the mosque and all the tombs of this Pashtun dynasty which ruled Northern India during the 16th century is always a moment of bliss, mostly when come the monsoon showers…
Then clouds of birds try to defeat the sudden winds in the red sky of fire and from every corner, life is welling forth…

“What reinforces the content of a photograph is the sense of rhythm – the relationship between shapes and values.”
(Henri Cartier-Bresson – French photographe, 1908–2004)

This picture was shot inside Ali Isa Khan Niazi’s tomb who was in the court of Sher Shah Suri during his short reign.
It is at the entrance of the Mughal Emperor Humayun’s Tomb complex in Delhi.
The jali (latticed screen) provided a game of shadows and lights dancing on the wall with a sense of rhythm…

Sadanand Patil is a well-known Indian theatre actor who was trained at the National School of Drama (NSD) in New Delhi, one of the foremost theatre institutions in the world.
This was shot in the gardens this during a break between two scenes of a movie in which we were both working together.
This brilliant actor is also one of the kindest and humblest person I met.
