A Quaint Building

This old construction in a new avatar with paintings.Built in the time of Britishers rule in India.Location is called Bhadrachalam and which served as Division Revenue office.Mostly used rock cuts in walls and spacious enough for people attendance for various works.High roof,windows and arch cut shape along with greenery made it as something beautiful and unique.

Recalled older days with the quaint construction.Still, sturdy enough coping with time.Hope you enjoyed the site.

A Song for destitutes

Sasi Sri Koti is a quite known singer.Be it devotional,patriotic,folk or any other in nature get filled with soul without any effort.Right from my college days , I have been used to listen her songs penned by several literary and musical giants like Annamacharya,Tyagaraja and Purandaradasa etc.,She herself authored many songs apart from her prime love music.On some occasions,wanted her to give an interview but which never get materialized so far,  perhaps due to her modesty to speak out her achievements.

As far as my knowledge is concerned,her rendition is a household familiar through Radio,T.V. and stage performance.And she did her Ph.D in music from Kakatiya University.Imparting lessons in music as a faculty.Recently,the video presented here reached me through a swap from Whatsap and intrigued myself to post it in youtube for you all.

The people unfortunate by fate were there in the group of listeners and hope you understand the condition of them in a home.Some bhajan must have been going on and affinity for singing evidently seen among the people.A heartwarming sight in brief.I wish I was there to appreciate her.

Our World Tuesday

Night has its own beauty and when lighting pierces through it ,certain combination come out with showing things that were not to be seen till then.This picture was taken when I visited a village, Charla.Night has fallen and street lights were on,hardly any activity there , obsessed to have the moment of serenity.

What we get out of our wanderlust...Everything that will be useful and beautiful,here this picture seen was taken during my journey of Rayagada,Odisha.The sluggish hillocks with clouds seem as if it was the part of the distant sky.The flowing river with greenery on its banks adding further beauty to the landscape,by having rounds to the varied places we could see such kind of fascinating pictures.They imprint in our minds,and lenses capture for permanent remembrance.

Paper Utensils

As simple as it if one has wished to have articles manufacturing with papers.True,both these are made of papers.One is a pen holder and another one is a bowl.These both are made of paper and  creative sense of the perpetrators to be laudable ,however,things will be useful  like anything.How many days they last..? That's the biggest question here, We don't know it.Though looked fragile , they last longer as they should be.
