Project365 ends today! 9
1st July 2015 – Mamallapuram, India The memories will remain etched for ever Of a year that went by in poetry and pics. But its not the places that will spring to mind.

While some of us mortals merely have a camera And the human art of balance, to be content. I had the craziest adventure last night, when I reached Athens. It was tough already, given that I landed at 10.30. What didn’t make it easier was that I had to make a Skype call as soon as I landed. I knew this was killing valuable time, but some things – and people – don’t wait. After the call, I rushed to the metro to catch […]

This was the first post of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here. 1st July 2014 – Singapore From dust we rose and to dust we shall go And dust is […]
