The Sun Temple At Modhera

The Sun Temple At Modhera

A hot October morning in Mehsana took me to Modhera, to a beautiful Sun Temple dating back to the 11th Century AD. A glowing specimen of the Solanki architecture, the ruins of this temple left me both awestruck and sad!

A Day Excursion To The West Of Leh

A Day Excursion To The West Of Leh

We started the Ladakh trip on a soft note with a half-day excursion towards the West of the Leh, all the way till the Alchi monastery and came back richer, both in terms of experience and photographs.

Across The Khardung La

Across The Khardung La

An intimate affair with Khardung La, one of the highest mountain passes in the world, at 17,582 ft, that I crossed four times in a matter of two weeks.

Banaras: A Mystic Love Story

Banaras: A Mystic Love Story

An ode to the magical Banaras, the oldest living city in the world, a mirror of the Indian civilization and Hinduism, a reflection of our Ganga Jamuni tehzeeb, a place of love and devotion and one of the most unique places to visit in India. Also, my favourite city.


Freezing a moment in time, for eternity…

The Old Man With Prayer Beads

The Old Man With Prayer Beads

A very patient Ladakhi gentleman in a traditional attire and a prayer bead always in his hands, who agreed to pose for us.


Stories from our travels, as moving pictures..


Food, shopping, books, films, this and that of everything …


Our Story

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

~ Mark Twain

Back in 2010, we placed our trust in Mr Twain and decided to explore the world in the little ways that we could, while still going with our 9-5 jobs, EMIs and other stuff.

Shadows Galore is our look at the world, about the places we have seen, the people we have met and the experiences we had, through our eyes… behind the lens …

We hope that you will enjoy this ‘journey’ …
