I am feeling pretty worthless especially when one of my office colleagues did a presentation on photography and after seeing the equipments he has and what he has captured, i have started feelling like what-the-hell-i-have-done-so-far which i can brag and may be blog.

with amitabh singing in the background on the radio which rahul tewari got for me :Meray paas aao meray doston…: I guess, i should close. hopefully i will be regular and would get some readers. 🙂

write back, if you know me !!!
