Emerald Trail – A home away from home : on my Travelogue – Sreeni on Road

It was a wonderful trip of friends and their families who have known one another for the last 18 years.

And the destination was Emerald Trail, created by another set of friends Sumit Datta and Leena Lele at Bhimtal!

Here, I tried to capture Emerald Trail in all its essence, along with its immediate contextual environment – socio-cultural-physical-natural milieu.

A beautiful creation through sweat and toil. It is home away from home, in the rustic, pristine environment to recharge and relaunch oneself.

Apart from the peaceful environs that rejuvenates you and can give you time to think and initiate yourself in many a creative pursuit, you can

– Walks into the woods,
– go on trekks if you are adventurous
– taking off the skyway with parasailing if you are adrenaline-umped
– drenching yourself in nearby water streams
– go boating in so many lakes nearby
– if you love nature, then good-friend Peter’s butterfly research centre is a great place to invest for half a day

SREENI Views : Vanishing tribe – mom and pop shops? Will they really?

The FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) in retail is very hotly debated topic in India now a days. Many arguments against and quite a few in favour are floating around. The political parties with the single mission of saving their own perceived ‘base’ are raising hue and cry.

The question is really, will the move impact the street corner traders and, mom and pop shops, adversely?

Will this grocery store vanish from the by-lanes of LEH?

Kathakali and Flamenco Duet : Dushyasana Vadam on ‘Sreeni on stage’, my blog on performing arts

The experimentation of Kathakali with Flamenco in the dance-drama Dushyasana Vadham was very exciting to experience. The dance-drama pushed the boundaries of both dance forms to explore the spaces that were serious no no! Though moved away from the very traditional, the overall concept was executed with a dramatic effect. It was worth the experimentation. at the Delhi International Arts Festival (Diaf)!

Geometry – Inspired and instigated by nature : on my photoblog SREENIViews

Geometry is integral to Nature. Nature, in its myriad forms, has helped us understand and,evolve geometric patterns and constructs.

We, human beings, have adopted these constructs in a variety of ways –

a. Designing monuments and buildings,

b. Embellishing the mega-structures

c. The attires we sport

d. Accessorizing the looks of a human beings

d. To visual presentation of the food!

e. The dance forms mimic the natures patterns

The list is endless. Here, I try to give a form to the conceptual thought that has been lingering….

Colors of Nature

the flowery patterns of the roof interiors

Taj, Vrindavan and Fatehpur Sikri
