An old man sleeps peacefully amidst the chaos at  Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Tiruchirapalli, India

Ranganathaswamy Temple is said to be the largest functioning Hindu temple in the world. The place is perennially crowded with local devotees and tourists. Amidst the chaos, I found this old man sitting on the ground and catching a nap while leaning against a roller up mat.

Lost

A toy train operator looking lost at a local fair in Thanjavur, India

While on a visit to Thanjavur,  I happened to visit a small fair near the famous Brihadeeswarar Temple.

The unsophisticated rides brought memories of yesteryear. Somewhere in the middle of those was this man, operating the toy train. Amidst the din, he gazed into the unknown. Oblivious of the chaos, lost in thought he operated the machines by reflexes. Starting when the last child was seated and stopping when the kids became restless.

While on a visit to Thanjavur,  I happened to visit a small fair near the famous Brihadeeswarar Temple.

The lights were bright. Rides in full flow. Smiles on kids faces. Calm on adults. Perfect small town feeling.

Taken on Puri beach adjacent to a fishing village

I was visiting Puri and took an early morning stroll on the beach. Towards the end of the beach there is a fishing village and fishing boats were returning after a night out at the sea.

Amidst the chaos and commotion associated with the returning of boats after a night of fishing, this old man was relaxing besides his boat – at peace with himself and the world around him
