I own “Hercules” bike. I had used it to commute to my office when it was closer to my home; since office shifted bike stood stand still in one corner of my house. I plan to revive my cycling once again, its time to feel cool morning breeze blowing through hairs again; experience the nostalgic smell of the soil after rains; thrill to ride the bike again. After all this is where I learned “how to drive”.
When my new digital camera (canon S5IS) came, I was eager to learn all photography tricks. I came across this trick called HDR photography and exposure blending which is possible with the help from digital camera. This was my first attempt on it.

Our national animal is fighting for its life.
From around 40,000 at the turn of the last century, there are just 1411 tigers left in India.
If we don’t act now, we could lose this part of our heritage forever.
Aren’t tigers the majestic, powerful, gracious and brave and bold creatures? They are the “symbol of power”, perhaps that is the reason why killing a tiger was considered royal sport.
