Male black bucks locking horns over mates and territory are not very uncommon in Tal Chappar, but I had wished to photograph one such action moment for a long time specially in rising or setting sun light. This day we had ventured out early morning and reached the spot well before sunrise. As the day begun we saw quite a few males engaged in fights. The challenge was to pick the right pair. I wanted my subject to be backlit so I chose this particular pair stationed myself far off so as not to disturb them and waited for the moment. Composition was the key here. I purposely place my subject in one corner of the frame and included the path of dust. Award winning photographers say that your image should tell a story and that is exactly what I tried to do. By including the trail of dust I could tell my viewers which male was dominating in this particular fight and the light did the rest. It ensured that the dust particles lit up giving a feel of a stage set on fire.

In Ngorongoro Crater we discovered this male kori bustard trying to attract females. During courtship, displays of the males are impressive and elaborate, successfully advertising their presence to potential mates.The males hold their heads backwards, with cheeks bulging, the crest is held erect, the bill open and they inflate their gular pouches, forming a white throat "balloon". During this display the oesophagus inflates to as much as four times its normal size and resembles a balloon.
Weeping forest is one of my photograph where I introduce my thoughts as representing global warming or climate change, now days it is a big issue entire world.

Reality and religion resides side by side..No conflict in between the two.

Human beings live in the kingdom of nature, they are constantly surrounded by it and interact with it. The most intimate part of nature in relation to man is the biosphere, the thin envelope embracing the earth, its soil cover, and everything else that is alive.
Gua Caves is the local name for Devil’s Kitchen, a deep bat-infested chamber between three naturally arranged imposing boulders (Pillar Rocks), a sight that is listed in Selvam’s book. It’s now called Guna Caves after it was turned into a romantic kidnapper’s lair for a Tamil movie. Loud teenagers stand just outside the fencing around the cave, screaming angstful “Abiramiiiii!”s (name of kidnapped in said movie). Selvam and I go around the base of the pillar rock. Me, petrified about being the potential thirteenth ghost in the cave, and Selvam, looking for a certain hallucinogenic ‘magic mushroom’ that gets him a good price from “Keralites and foreigners''.

Alongside religion, comes superstition. And in the name of superstition, a young girl is drugged and declared possessed and punched in the name exorcism. The whole point of this exercise was to prove that the girl was possessed by her dead mother who wants to donate her ornaments to a temple (and not to her daughter). It was alarming that the crowd too believed in this.
