GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1283]

I was up early and finished packing before we headed off to the airport for our last flight within Greenland, flying over most of the distance we had covered during the trip. Upon reaching Kangerlussuaq, we dashed off to Meet Nini, JP’s wife. Taking ... Read more >

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [2330]

I was still packing when our Komatsu Wheel Loader came to the front door to cargo luggage to the dock, and I was late. I ended up carrying all my bags in three flights of walking back and forth, had missed breakfast and worse, we were leaving Kangamuit ... Read more >

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1025]

This morning the sky was clear and I was up at 7 am, to see an already ready Simon walking out with his camera bag for a morning stroll around the village. Quick shower and packing later, we met our hunters, Peter and Betalt, at Breakfast. Quick ... Read more >

Day 9: Welcome to my Village

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [2221]

Arriving into a new city by the sea in a chartered boat is more fun when you are placed in it after a bone-jarring hike.  You feel glad that movement is through the power of a propeller and not from pushing your paining limbs. Riding the Taga ... Read more >

Day 7: Myths and Mountains

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1054]

I have no clue what day or date it is today, not that it matters in the mountains. What matters is that I have woken up with a terrible body ache. Our tent is pitched right on top of stones and uneven ground, a discomfort we (Lykke and I) discovered ... Read more >

Day 8: March Back to Civilization

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [948]

I have a perennial blue line across my lips. I am cold. This place looks like heaven. It feels like hell. In a place like this, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is at its lowest- food, shelter and survival. As you go up in the ladder, self-expression, ... Read more >

Day 6: Why are Musk Oxen so Cool

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1117]

I am getting my bum frozen in the Tundra. My hands are numb; my fingers, struggling to stay five intact inside a glove; my back hurts like it has never hurt before. Carrying a 60-litre backpack loaded to the brim, I have been hiking for what seems ... Read more >

Day 5: The view from the top

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1964]

Sleep, food, and the comforts of a bed have never been so welcome before. After the past few days’ adventures, the day started on a much-needed relaxed note. I had a renewed sense of gratitude towards comforts and technological innovations ... Read more >

Day 4: Snowflakes on Snow Slabs

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [2191]

Snowflakes greeted me first thing this morning when Jason’s voice probed me to jut my head out of the tent. Soft flakes of white floated around as a very sleepy me looked on with wonder. I spotted a couple of curious mountain hares. The sun ... Read more >

Day 3: Living in a Refrigerator

WORLDWIDE | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1097]

We are camped bang opposite the mighty Russell Glacier. The wind hitting the glacier comes back and chills our bones to the last ligament. Last night, bunking in the tent, I couldn’t sleep well. The wind kept howling and there was ... Read more >

Day 2: Hello Russell!

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1243]

Last night, after the sugarloaf experience, we finally managed to reach the camp and crashed soon after dinner was over. Jason acquainted me with all his camera gear, which alone weighs 100kgs! With so many carry-ons exceeding the prescribed weight ... Read more >

Day 1: Kangerlussuaq: Sugarloaf to Sugar low

GREENLAND | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [2755]

Disembarking from the Air Greenland flight, I was a wobbly doll with my head swaying from one side to another with exhaustion and sleep. The five hours on the flight passed in a soft lull and in conversations with a Danish Doctor working at Nuuk, the ... Read more >

Day Zero: Through Canals in Copenhagen

DENMARK | Monday, 21 Oct 2013 | Views [1347]

  After touch down at Kastrup airport, grey leaden sky and a tickling breeze reached me, welcoming me with the promise of good Nordic weather. I hailed a cab for the airport and the smooth plain roads of Copenhagen on a Sunday afternoon ... Read more >

Day Minus One: Aloha Doha!

GREENLAND | Sunday, 20 Oct 2013 | Views [1270]

Each time a flight lands, my mind wanders off to a Lego Set, as I peep out of the window like an excited child; It wanders off to tilt shift photography too, and the semblance of their make believe beautiful creations and romance with colour.  The ... Read more >

INDIA | Friday, 5 Jul 2013 | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

To photograph for me is to connect. To get a glimpse into another’s life, a moment, a feeling- in the time space continuum- and a means to share that bond. Bred on episodes of Globe Trekker, a travel show from 90s, I have always longed to reach out to ... Read more >

Discovering a camera in the year 2000 as a millennium gift was a milestone I could have never realized then. Experimenting, roaming with curiosity and consuming quite a few film rolls, the twelve year old me was mesmerized by the fascinations and wonders ... Read more >
