Monsoon Glory – 2

Dark monsoon clouds hang low on the Western Ghats overlooking the 12th C Mahadeva (Shiva) temple in the village of Tambdi Surla, Goa. Many great Goan temples were destroyed by the Portuguese but this exquisitely carved gem, set in a remote jungle clearing, escaped unscathed probably because of its isolation. It is today the oldest surviving temple in Goa.

Monsoon Glory – 1

The southwest monsoons along India’s Konkan and Malabar coast are now in full flow. Those who live in this region of western India enjoy the verdant lushness that blankets the land at this time of the year. This is wild, opulent green that we are talking about, heightened by the diffuse lighting provided by cloud cover.

In 2007 I had the pleasure of photographing an entire monsoon season in Goa, and a small slice of it in Kerala. This is the first installment of a monsoon-themed sequence. To us Goans, the monsoon is not merely a season. It is a state of mind, a feeling. I shall try to convey that complex of emotions and aesthetic through these photographs.
