I walked past the busy streets near the Midland Colony on NH-39 to confront the gates of the Kohima War Memorial. There was an eerie silence in the air, a gentle whisper of the winds into my ears, as if they spoke something of this place, about the heroes who chose to fight against all odds- and became eternal.

Moments of Peace and Tranquility at the Mecca Masjid Hyderabad
Khairatabad area of Hyderabad is often a busy street. The auto-rickshaws brushing past from both sides creates a shiver for the new comers on this land. But for the sake of making it to the Mecca Masjid today, I was ready for all the odds.
