“…Is jagaa hum mile phool dil mein khile
Kya khabar, kya pataa hum mein tum mein ho kya
Baaton baaton mein kabhi, aankhon aakhon mein kabhi…”
(…We meet in this place and flowers bloom in my heart
Who knows what there is in you and me
Sometimes in words, sometimes in eyes…)
(From the song “Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat”)

This picture was shot in the Lodi Gardens in Delhi where I saw this couple in love enjoying a moment of cool breeze before sunset…

“The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.”
(Henri Cartier-Bresson – French photographe, 1908–2004)

Lucknow, the mythical city of Nawabs, allows to travel in time.
I always enjoy to spend time in the Bara Imambara (or Asafi Imambara) complex for a sensory memory journey…

“I prowled the streets all day, feeling very strung up and ready to pounce, determined to ‘trap’ life – to preserve life in the act of living.
Above all, I craved to seize the whole essence, in the confines of one single photograph, of some situation that was in the process of unrolling itself before my eyes.”
(Henri Cartier-Bresson – French photographe, 1908–2004)

This picture was shot in Kalkaji in the garden which is at the corner of the place where I stay whenever I am in Delhi.
By chance I saw this beautiful horse grazing the grass among the tropical plants and the benches and bringing poetry to the city…

“Here Comes The Sun”

"Here Comes The Sun"

 

Everyone is freezing today in many countries in the world and in North India as well, so here comes a picture with a song in order to warm you up…;)

“Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, 
and I say it’s all right 
Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter 
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here 
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun 
and I say it’s all right 
Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces 
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here 
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun 
and I say it’s all right 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes… 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes… 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes… 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes… 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes… 
Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting 
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear 
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, 
and I say it’s all right 
It’s all right ”
(“Here Comes The Sun” lyrics by The Beatles)

Fallacy of Composition

The oldest living city in the world”.

This is a picture of Pritviraj and Vinod, who are pehlwans (Hindi word for wrestlers).
I shot it during their training at the gym, at sunrise near Scindia Ghat along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).

A fallacy of composition arises there, those two young men were not at all aware of the sensuality, nor of the ambiguity which is in the series of images.
The poses that I am showing belong to sequences of a basic training that any pehlwan has to do everyday.

Pehlwani (Devanagari: पहलवानी, Urdu: پہلوانی), Kushti (Devanagari: कुश्ती, Urdu: کشتی), or modern Indian wrestling, is a synthesis of an indigenous Aryan / Hindu form of wrestling that dates back at least to the 5th century BC and a Persian form of wrestling brought into South Asia by the Mughals.

Fallacies of Ambiguity

The fallacies of ambiguity involve a confusion of different senses however all those pictures are absolutely innocent, it is all about a kind of martial art which is one of the oldest sport in the world.

Pehlwani (Devanagari: पहलवानी, Urdu: پہلوانی), Kushti (Devanagari: कुश्ती, Urdu: کشتی), or modern Indian wrestling, is a synthesis of an indigenous Aryan / Hindu form of wrestling that dates back at least to the 5th century BC and a Persian form of wrestling brought into South Asia by the Mughals.

I have been showing those pictures to Pritviraj and Vinod who kindly accepted to pose for me.

They liked the prints of these series that I gave them.

Suspended disbelief

Massage is regarded an integral part of a pahalwan’s exercise regimen.
Ayurveda massage has two systems of treatment, one is to Pacify the aggravated Doshas by using proper natural herbs and minerals and second one is to purify the body, by “washing out” the increased Doshas from the body.
Oil massage is an important treatment in Ayurveda.
A massage that is part of the daily routine lasts for five to fifteen minutes.

But when it is performed for treating diseases it may take about 45 minutes.

During the treatment the patient is made to recline in seven standard positions.
This begins with the person seated in an upright position, supine or flat on the back, turning to the right side, supine again, turning to the left side, supine once again, and finally sitting as in the beginning.
Sometimes the position of lying face down is also adopted.
Panchakarma is a holistic rejuvenation therapy and is not just an oil massage, as it is widely believed.
