Hanuman - The God with muscles

This temple at Mahalakshmi layout in Bangalore has a very tranquil environment. The idol of Hanuman is a monolith carved from an ancient rock formation. I consider Hanuman to be the most powerful (in looks) among all the Hindu Gods. He is believed by some scholars to be a source for the Chinese mythological character Sun Wukong.

Mumbo Jumbo

Elephants are wonderful. I have been fascinated by these majestic creatures right from when I was a kid. I happened to stumble upon elephant links by Dey Alexander which is a great source for elephant related content. Below is a Photoshopped picture of me with elephant. I am shit scared to be this proximate with them in real life ;-)
My all time favourite elephant joke:
Q: What did the elephant say when he saw a dead ant on the road?
A: Deadant! Deadant! Deadant!!! (to be sung).

Q: What did he say when he saw a live ant on the road?
A: He stamped it to death and then said "Deadant! Deadant! Deadant!!!".

Light and Shadow

I just wrote and erased a letter. It was long, and I lost myself once again in my words.
I wish I could say what I mean, and I'll try.
There will come a time, gigantic waves will crush the junk that I have saved. When the moon will explode and I'll lose the souvenirs I've made.
Dear Wifey, you are beautiful and compassionate.
You are wonderful.

Dear Sweetheart

I hope you discover what I discovered -- that the world is full of beauty, hope, wonder, and love. And I hope you come to realize what I realized -- that nothing else matters.

I love you, desperately
