From a visit to Mani Bhavan on Saturday.
Gandhiji stayed here from 1917-1934.
This is where the civil disobedience movement began.

Wow. Thanks for uploading these pics here.

So simple and soothing.

and what a contrast the last pic speaks of in present day India.

Like Munnabhai,I could almost sense Bapu's presence in the first pic..:)Lovely!It's in Mumbai or Guj? I visited the Gandhi Ashram once,in Abad,and it's equally peaceful.

Hello Austere:

Your images are, as always, intriguing and artistic. I like the geometry of the middle one.

I know I have been scarce at my blog, so I do understand why you may not be stopping by much anymore. But, I wanted to let you know that I am making a strong effort to be back consistently again, and plan to comment back to people who comment on my essays. So, if you are willing to give me another look, I think you will enjoy my efforts. So... please stop by again.

Hi Austy,

Mystic- thank you. There is more. That lane is just so beautiful, with a canopy of trees…

Amit- Sabarmati? Haven’t been in two decades. This place is in Gamdevi, Mumbai.

PT- of course I read your page. The last article needs thought before commenting- its technical- hence haven’t commented yet. But will.

Nimh: ha ha ha what book deal? I’m just making a beginning with translations, and there isn’t a market for translations. So be it. We shall persist. I guess get a good agent so you’ll get in the door. Best. Rootin for you.

beautiful pictures with a mix of anger..empty but filled with so much as the same.

reminds me of a ying and yang balance.

austere said...

crusty: thank you.

arunima: yes, except for that one room.

Portia said...

kind of like your writing, speaks volumes with apparent simplicity...i imagine the energy must be something there, although that is something i only ever find when not searching.

austere said...

Portia- True of your art as well, if I may say.
