Bridegroom on horse

These are a few photographs taken in Pushkar, Rajasthan, of a bridegroom atop a horse, in a baraat. It is a traditional custom in North India for the bridegroom to travel on a horse to reach the house of the bride. Family and friends accompany the bridegroom in a procession which often includes a live band. Dancing and singing in the streets during the wedding procession is the traditional way. Fireworks are common.

The procession takes place in the evening. It's a crowded street and the procession blocks the road.

Pune Tekdi

When you say Tekdi (Hill), any Punekar will know what you are talking about. There are many such tekdis (hills) in Pune, and they offer a respite from the crowds and pollution. Punekars climb these tekdis regularly and it is not just an exercise routine but also a spiritual experience in a way.

Sale Season in India

These last couple of years sales are a regular feature at the malls and in fact all shops. Prices on left over apparel for example are slashed to 50% or less. A few years ago in India one was suspicious of these sales, convinced that the shop keepers hiked the prices and then then cut prices in a fake sale. Today, most of the sales are genuine. The reasons are that the marketers make their money on the high priced items they sell during the non-sale season, and then want to simply get rid of the rest of the stock as fashions change. Consumers are no longer content with last season's clothes.

Sales of popular brands create a huge rush as is seen below.

Sale season in India

When sales are in season, there are sales in almost all shops in a mall. Can get confusing for consumers.

Universal Studios Dinosaur movie

There was this very entertaining fake dinosaur at Universal Studios in Singapore. Great fun to watch! Unfortunately as it was taken on the phone the resolution is not very high so one cannot watch it full screen.

Asian Small Clawed Otters

These are not baby otters. Out of the 16 Otter species in the world, these are the smallest. Not many habitats for them, but they are mainly found in some parts of Asia, including Singapore. These photographs are taken in the zoo at Singapore.
