hey akshay,
awesome stuff man...
I wish you & HT did a photo shoot on the horrific and dangerous journey of Virar to Churchgate in morning peak hours.
There are atleast 300 people sitting on top of the train in the morning, people risk life, limb and electrucution.

I'm sure your pics will awaken the guys in the Railways.

cheers man.

Stumbled upon your blog from Kala Ghoda Gazette. Stumped by your photography here. Your coverage of Korlai was great. I had been on a solitary 3 hour trip to this place last year. Its scent gave me a run. Recently I have started my blog @ would be happy if u ca take a look. It covers the recent cultural happening s in Mumbai. All the best for ur nomination @ Indibloggies(read this line thrice for 3 nominations).

Well I (was one of those who) nominated you & fully and completely knew you would win.

With no disrespect to the IB award, you're worthy of so much greater. Seriously.

I know you love what you do, but if you're ever down, remember that.

PS: That was ME waving out to you the other day when you were with ** and all smiles :)))
