    Rakhi Day Special

    Posted on by Amrit Ammu in Indian Festivals | 2 Comments

    Share: It’s Rakhi Day – The Rakshabandhan (An indian festival which celebrates the bond between a brother & sister, wherein the sister ties a sacred thread on her brother’s wrist, while the brother promises to protect his sister and take care of her at all times in return) It is a very sacred festival I believe, as it is meant to strengthen the bond between brothers & sisters. They may be siblings or even cousins 🙂 This day every year, I tie a Rakhi to Harnoor’s wrist and I always fondly wait for this festival for various reasons altogether. He is a gem in my life. This post, I am dedicating to him as he is one sole reason why I am able to celebrate this festival with so much zeal. Second reason of course being that I much adore him 🙂 giggle* Okay I will write a quick interpretation …

    Share: Frame me colorful, he said.. For the colors are the source to happiness, which delve us out from the world of grey.. …And just right there I said.. Why not frame it fine, with a crease of smile to see your world ignite 🙂 This colorful picture speaks for itself and I am so loving its liveliness. The model in this picture being my brother, I had all the liberty to experiment with the picture right the way I wanted and imagined it to be. (Big hug to him for the patience and the right amount of enthusiasm he kept alive throughout the session 🙂 This picture was shot one sunday morning, when in a playful mood, I decided to experiment something bright and funny on Harnoor. It might have taken us an hour or so but the results were so vibrant to keep us fully charged during this whole …

    Share: (The photographs in this post are © Amrit Ammu Photography) I have shared my learning from this visit in terms of photography, at the end of this post. Have a look and let me know about your suggestion too ! I was talking about the photographs of beads, pottery and women accessories in the last post, which I am sharing up here. Just like before, these photos also depict a bright color splash on different mediums altogether. Taking up the beads section first, here we go for a vibrant ride below.. 🙂 This is how beautiful the loose beads looked, spread across on a large table. They were used to make customized bracelets or key-ring or neck piece or whatever-you-may-want out of them This is the thread with which the beads were stringed together in the form, the customer would prefer 🙂 Customization on the roll ! Above, you can see …

    Share: (The photographs in this post are © Amrit Ammu Photography) This post is a follow up sequence of  the blog  “On the occasion of Ugadi” On this festive day, our college mess was also decorated with flowers and Rangoli and there was a joyous atmosphere around. To be a part of the celebrations at Shilparamam, I was travelling in bus with my friend and on the way, while travelling , I saw so many ladies and young girls dressed up in new clothes and warm smiles. Many of them also adorned Gajra on their hair. The whole city was in a festive mood. On reaching Shilparamam, I just went wow over and over again ! I must say, I was witnessing this kind of creativity after a very long time. And on seeing the whole of it and capturing it’s beauty in my camera, I was really overjoyed. Here are some pictures that …

    Share: (The photographs in this post are © Amrit Ammu Photography)  This post is dated April 10th, 2013. Last evening in the city of Nawabs, Hyderabad, when I was travelling from Banjara Hills to Mehdipatnam, I noticed a lot of shops being beautifully decorated with flowers, lights and colors. The huge posters outside these shops were also speaking of some special discounts for their customers. I was trying to recollect if some occasion was around.. And soon I saw some boards that answered my thoughts.. It was Ugadi the day after ! On reaching my college hostel, I started searching about the festival and came to know that Ugadi which means “The beginning of a new age” marks the New Year’s Day for the people of the Deccan region of India, according to the Indian Calendar. Basically the New Year’s Day is celebrated throughout India, However it is named differently in different states. This festival …
