A Rohingya refugee receives an oral cholera vaccine from a Bangladeshi volunteer at the Thankhali refugee camp in Ukhia district on October 10, 2017. The United Nations launched one of its biggest ever cholera vaccination drives in the vast refugee camps of southeast Bangladesh on October 10 amid fears of an outbreak among nearly a million Rohingya now living there.
The throat fan in males of Sitana ponticeriana is brilliantly colored with red, blue and dark shades during the breeding months. When running quickly they often adopt bi-pedal mode of locomotion. I shot this image at Chalkewadi in Satara district. I observed this male to repeat the path while patrolling his territory. This is the only lizard in India known to adopt bi-pedal locomotion. It took me three years to get this image the way I previsualized.
The Fan-throated Lizard Sarada superba is a beautiful agamid found in most parts of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka & Nepal. These gentle agamids are colorful dragons of the modern world. These lizards have a thin flap of skin called a gular appendage, between their throat and their abdomen which they can flap/ flash at will. Normally these appendages are whitish or creamish in color, but what’s interesting is that during the breeding season (mainly May-June) the males of these species develop a wonderful coloration ranging from blue-black-red. They take positions over small rocks or branches on the ground and flash their brightly colored gular appendages to attract other females and also to warn off other males about their territory.
I was on a family tour to Kerala, India, one of the beautiful states of India, By 4th day of tour we were in Munnar, Kerala, India, This place is really beautiful in its own way. Wherever you see it is a beautiful landscape, In morning around 5 am we left from our Hotel in Munnar for sight seeing, as we were moving in a bus, i witnessed the beauty of Munnar. Even though i could not stop the bus for photography i manages to click pictures from the window itself. This picture could be considered one of the lucky shot i clicked from the window, trust me majority clicks from windows turned out to be beautiful, but this one is my favorite. I wish to visit the place once again with full preparation.
The majestic cascade of white water, gushing over the steep, nearly vertical face of the mountain from a spectacular height of 1017ft; is both breath taking and awe inspiring, making one aware that there are many forces in nature much more powerful that the human mind and body.The name ‘Dudhsagar’ literally translates to ‘sea of milk’ which many believe is an allusion to the white spray and foam that the great waterfall creates as it cascades into the waters of the lake. The falls are at their zenith during the monsoon season, although they are a popular attraction all year round.
A portrait of a Blue Bottle Fly clicked just before it lowered its head to suck the nectar from the flower below. It was as if it was giving me a curious look or maybe looking at its reflection in the lens!
This shot is from my recent trip to Langza Village in Spiti Valley, India. It is a great time to watch these animals going to their respective farms after grazing in the mountains. Shepherds don't need to guide them because these animals are smart enough to know which farms they belong to. Though they create a dust storm while returning but its an amazing visual to see animals and people working together.
A general evening where all went for a walk and its was every thing normal. Orange light was all over and it was just a different feeling in that every thing around was feeling like it should be kept still for ever. You could imagine how beautiful the evening was and to that the flying eagle was an add on to that beauty.
Dissecting the colourful nerves of India under the touch of conceptual artistry. A calm expression of those shades of VINTAGE INDIAN elements embracing around the silhouette with its utmost perfection. A poetry.....Ind-tage!
