BEAUTIFULLY STACKED PESTLE & MORTAR PIECES IN SHIRDI

These beautifully staked pestle and mortar (khal batta – associated with a ritual of Puja offerings to Sai Baba) peices at shoprs at Shirdi in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra pull attention easily.

And the captivating flow of the pattern their stacking makes elongates the attention span.

There are idols of Gods as well in the frame but the eyes make effort to go there.

A worthwhile click while on the go.

THE LAAD BAZAAR BANGLES @ CHARMINAR (3)

Some are like fields of sunlit corn,
Meet for a bride on her bridal morn,
Some, like the flame of her marriage fire,
Or, rich with the hue of her heart’s desire,
Tinkling, luminous, tender, and clear

From Sarojini Naidu’s ‘The Bangle Sellers’


Laad Bazaar-6

Laad Bazaar is famous for bangles though its numerous shops are also known as a cultural marketplace for other products of aesthetic value as well, like its exquisitely designed pearls encrusted jewellery.

‘Laad’ translates to endearment or fondness or adoration or many other similar words, but the meaning remains the same – the love bestowed upon, to pamper, to caress. It is adoration of pure feelings in human relations.

Laad Bazaar-7

Bazaar translates to market. Laad Bazaar is a centuries old market in the Charminar area of Hyderabad. It forms the essential part of the heritage that makes the Charminar the cultural epitome of Hyderabad, a historical city weaved in culture and tradition.

Laad Bazaar is about a cultural legacy and it reflects in products here and in the way the business is conducted about these products – the soft, pampered approach to adore the customers in a pure Hyderabadi style – to sell them, who are so dear to us in our families, the endearing thoughts associated these ‘circles of light’, the bangles, they are so fond of, as the Nightingale of India, Sarojini Naidu writes.

THE LAAD BAZAAR BANGLES @ CHARMINAR (2)

Some are meet for a maiden’s wrist,
Silver and blue as the mountain mist,
Some are flushed like the buds that dream
On the tranquil brow of a woodland stream,
Some are aglow with the bloom that cleaves
From Sarojini Naidu’s ‘The Bangle Sellers’

Who will buy these delicate, bright
Rainbow-tinted circles of light?
Lustrous tokens of radiant lives,
For happy daughters and happy wives.

LIFE AND ITS OFFSHOOTS – NOT OFFSPRINGS ALWAYS

Life n Its Offshoots-2SOMETIMES PLANNED – MOSTLY UNPLANNED

The tree with no leaves (dry or deciduous I won’t comment) in a walled space (I would not say it anything else but a perimeter with fence) – looking at this tree without leaves and extended branches – while sitting for a cup of coffee at one of the food joints of Char Dukan at Landour – and thinking of and on life in some personal moments of a wanderer’s life – this thought on ‘life and living’ comes to the conscious naturally..
