Lotus, as in is divine when they bloom. The Ganesha idol decorated with Lotus for Ganesha Chathurthi along with Ganesha's favourite grass Dhruva or Durva at home.
Oh, these petals and the colours of the lotus petal made me stop by the man who was plucking the petals before closing for the day. They are so beautiful, I started clicking pictures of these petals. Pictures clicked at KR Market, Bengaluru.

Sahasrara means thousand, infinite! In this context thousand-petaled.

Flowers from Ladakh

Beautiful blooms on the Himalayan range. These flowers get six months of sunshine, they bloom in vibrant colours when they are not covered with snow in the summers. The roses so alluring and huge, the wildflowers too are so gorgeous, flamboyant sunflowers! The land of passes has bewitching beauty, like the people there everything is so divine.

Wedding Moments: Stage Decorations

Wedding season begins after Aati (Ashada) and most of the brides and grooms have started their preparations. 

Stage decor is one of the most important aspects for weddings. Your entire wedding album may look not so good if there's no thought given on the stage decorations. At times the wedding venue may not be great but if the stage decor is well thought, it's a boon. Also, the props used in the Stage Decor should go with the wedding theme and match with the bride and grooms attire. 

Stage decor has a major impact on your wedding moments, so do it right. 

How do you like the stage decor in the below images. We planned this one a simple but elegant manner and on a low budget. Feel free to contact me for Stage Decor ideas and wedding planning.

Dhakke - Mangalore's Fishing Dock

Dhakke, the Fishing Dock of Mangalore is near the old Mangalore Port. For a devoted fishiterian me, this place holds a special place. Though, I haven’t visited this place while I was staying in Mangalore for reasons obvious. Parents would take care of feeding us and the place stinks of fish but the fresh catch of the day would taste scrumptious.
Few days back we had a gathering at home and we had to buy Fish. So we planned for an early morning drive to Dhakke. Well, it didn’t turn out to early morning though. We were at Dhakke around 07:30 in the morning and the business was already in full swing with the auctions to movement of fishes to the tempos and trucks and offloading the fishes from the boats. There were crates and crates of fishes all over.
Few pictures from my visit to Dhakke and you will get to decide about this place.. stinky but lively..
