    Where do the Children Play?

    Chris Avinash is always monkeying around! but this time, at the Skinney Alley gig at Kyra, I spotted him at the back of the restaurant keeping these 3 kids amused and getting them to do synchronized screams when the band finished a song and what not! The light there was just brilliant and the kids […]

    Anniversary!

    Shilpa and I celebrated 5 years together this month and this was taken on our anniversary! Infact, I wanted to see if we could do some home made studio style lighting with emergency lamps and co-incidentally, there was a massive power cut that evening!

  • The Paper Slut

    Arjun Ravi runs Indiecision, one of the best blogs about Indian indie music and he must be the one guy attending the MOST gigs in the country right now! I caught this photo when at the Indigo Children gig in Blue Frog. He should make this his visiting card!
