It is Friday night, and I am yearning for a cold beer. I check the fridge and find nothing. So I pick a bottle from the crate and push it in the fridge hoping the marvels of modern technology will help me. 30 minutes later, I am sitting with a still-not-cold beer in my hand absolutely parched with the shards of my hope scattered around me. Then the bulb lights up! I put the beer in balcony and put my hopes at the marvel of freezing Munich winter. My faith is restored in 15 minutes with an absolute chilled bottle of beer in my hand!
Man, I miss the warm climate…
Clicked in the very warm climate of Fuertventura, Canary Islands.

Tomorrow will be the same day as it was yesterday, then why this hooplah about a new year?! Have not gone on twitter/fb for the same reason. This is no new beginning, a new beginning is only when you want a new beginning in your life.. Anyway whoever believes in these things, a happy new year to you!
The only reason for this post – I wanted to publish the above shot. I rarely take a good fireworks shot, this was an exception!

Till today Diwali used to mean lots of hustle-bustle, fliers screaming sales, being forced to clean house (at times), applying for vacation 2 months back, and booking train/flight tickets even earlier. Never realized how integral these things had become in my life till today when I am celebrating – no that is the wrong word, there is no celebration here – spending my Diwali in office working more hours than usual to cover for people in India who are enjoying this day. For the past 2 days I have been avoiding Facebook like a plague as the posts and photographs only serve to remind me of what I am missing. I know today is a special day, it even feels the same way but I am forced to treat it as a normal working day. For me this is the first Diwali as an expat, and I am hoping all my subsequent Diwali’s are at home in India.
Enough depressing talk, I think another factor responsible for it is the weather. I don’t mind the cold, but give me some sun! 1-2 hours of sunshine is enough, but here the weather has been dreary for the last few days. The fall is at an end and as the Starks’ say “Winter is Coming”

Enough talk, hope everyone has a safe and really enjoyful Diwali!
Ferris Wheel at Oktoberfest Munich by Kunal
The natural lights dimmed, the artificial ones came alive, and as dusk settled over Oktoberfest 2012 Munich I captured this juxtaposition of two different light sources.

And this how a perfect day looks like.. Wish the summer (no,not the Indian one) was a bit longer here.
