I liked the crow, and the postboxes.

Some Scottish woman told a friend of mine that she felt instantly at home in India when she saw the postboxes. So very Brit!

Keep clicking Soumya, and ignore the critics.

Rohit, the beauty of B&W is heard to beat. It has a surreal feel about it.

Aqua, hmmm... This reminds of an anecdote which Amartya da (the Economics Nobel Laureate) narrated. In his youth he had written a paper criticizing the theories of a respected economist. When Mr. Sen met him and asked what he thought about his paper, the respected economist replied, "Interesting." Our solitary desi with a Nobel in Economics was elated. Many years later when Mr. Sen matured in his vocation and realised that the paper was indeed juvenile, he confronted the respected economist asking for an explanation to his "Interesting" reaction. To that the other economist said, "When something doesn't interest us enough to think about it, we say it's 'interesting'" The easiest way to ignore something stupid without being offensive.

I do this a lot of times, though am not sure what your intention was. Knowing you, I don't think you're like the other economist or for that matter like me.

AFJ, Yes, another dull, boring and monotonous day. And I remain the eternal pseudo journalist.

Anthony, Been to your blog and I believe I surprised you.

Anonymous, The peeps are my beer buddies. Sense and senselessness depends on how you see it. To me everything I do seems mindless (therefore the title of this blog). But some people sometimes find some faint glimmer of sense here and therefore I blog.

Dwaipayan, They day I catch hold of you, little pesky cousin you're done for.

Abaniko, One is only bound the megabytes in the memory stick. And that's more than enough.

Thalassa_mikra, The digicam will go on and the critics will remain ignored.

hi Soumya
:)I call a spade a spade.
(your response reminds me of a similar scene from You've Got Mail, where Meg Ryan is stoodup by Hanks, and she shoots him an email)

I thought mayb I should elaborate on my 'interesting' comment. I loved your subjects more than the photographs themselves. It is the small things that matter, and most often, we miss the obvious.
I think it tells you sumthin about the photogrpaher himself;)..waht say?
