Nirvana in batata-vada.

Seen at the annual festival of the Anant Temple in Savoi-Verem, Goa. Batata-vada is a spicy potato fritter popular in Goa and neighboring areas.

    There is no other snack that can match the humble batatavada your capture of this boy reminds me of my childhood.

    LOL!!! My wife sometimes, lovingly, call my son “batatya”…I was delightfully reminded of that when I saw this photograph. 🙂ReplyCancel

      Premanand-bab: ‘Batatya’ is an endearing sobriquet for the little one.ReplyCancel

    Yes, it certainly does look like the aliens have landed. I like the sense of isolation in each. You really have mastered drone photography.ReplyCancel

      Bob: Thank you. A higher vantage point would have made it even better but it was very windy with a threat of rain. I decided to play it safe with the drone.ReplyCancel

Fun and frolic.

    Very nice Rajan bhai! It’s snowing heavily here in this part of the world as well. Your post inspires me to take my camera out for a spin. 🙂ReplyCancel

Sublime light.
