Thursday Challenge – Green

Yesterday, while shopping at Easy Day Store (A Bharti Walmart Retail Supermarket), which happens to be on the ground floor of our apartment complex, an idea was born…

After keeping all the grocery items back home I rushed again to the store with my Nikon SLR camera. Got a few curious looks… ignoring that I met the store manager and told him about my POA.

While, he liked the idea but due to policy issues, would not allow me to click pictures inside the store. And then he himself suggested the solution!
A beaming me, gladly went ahead to do the needful.

Borrowed the stool from the Mehndi fellow who sits outside the store and displayed all the goodies on it and voila… the stage was set!

Presenting my Green pic…

… the various brands which are green in colour or packaging!!

Thursday Challenge – Metal

It’s Metal, this week at Thursday Challenge. And here is my metal…

These are the Tibetan Buddhist Mani Prayer Wheels. 
Each Prayer Wheel is filled with thousands of Avalokiteshvara mantras “OM MANI PADME HUM“. Tibetan Buddhists believe that spinning the Mani wheel in clockwise direction, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.

Clicked at the Buddhist Monastery at Mclodganj, Himachal Pradesh.

Thursday Challenge – Cars

“CARS” …New, Old, Sedans, Convertibles, Station Wagons, Sports,… that’s the theme this Thursday.

Last December, I clicked a picture of this Vintage Jeep which was a part of a small fleet of vehicles owned by the Rajah of Poshina, Gujarat.

We had a workshop at this palace in Poshina and during every break, all the guys (participants) would surround this Jeep and admire it from every angle, have conversation with the Rajah about it’s history, mileage et al. Having a ride in it one evening, was a euphoric moment for them!!

Thursday Challenge – Movement

Movement as in Shaking, Falling, Bouncing, Jumping, Curling, Sagging,.. That’s the theme this Thursday.Seen here in this picture is Aaryan enjoying Water Zorbing! 

Let me share the process involved in Water Zorbing…

First a person has to climb inside a deflated Zorb which is made up of PVC. Then it is inflated and finally zipped and sealed. Next, the Zorb with the person inside is rolled into the water.

It’s sheer fun to do Water Zorbing and even more funnier to watch others do it.

Balancing the position inside the Zorb Ball can be quite tricky, especially in the water.

People keep falling, rolling and curling inside the ball. The key to maintain the posture is to spread the legs and arms wide while moving inside the ball.

It’s not only a fun game for kids but also for the adults! Though the adults are better at it, because of their weight and balancing skills.

Have you tried your hands (arms and legs too) at Water Zorbing??
