The tale of the wife, the mistress and holy drops of water…

Once upon a time, Lord Brahma decided to do a fire worship and decided upon the city of Pushkar as the chosen venue. Now as per the prevalent rules of the time he was supposed to have his wife, Savitri, along with him, but somehow she did not turn up. Being the pragmatic gentleman that he is, he married a local village belle, Gayatri, to do the honors  For whatever reason, this upset Savitri and she cursed Brahma, one of the members of the holy trinity of the powerful triumvirate comprising of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu, that his presence in temples to be limited only to one town in the whole world, and thus only in the town of Pushkar in the entire land of Hindustan will you find a temple dedicated to Brahma!!

Meet Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

As I was exploring the beautiful city of Montpellier in France, I had a lucky chance to see an ongoing exhibition by the famous aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The larger-than-life-blown-up images were transcendentally beautiful and awe inspiring. Born in Paris, Yann Arthus-Bertrand was interested in nature and wildlife from an early age. He founded the Altitude Agency in 1991, which was the world’s first press agency and images bank specializing in aerial photography. About 500,000 pictures were taken in more than 100 countries by more than 100 photographers!!
