A bird in its habitat - Little Forktail 
On every trip that I go out on, I have one or two target images that I want to make. This time on the visit to the Zuluk area in Sikkim I wanted to make an image of a Little Forktail in its beautiful habitat. Little Forktails are most often found around fast running mountain streams and cascading waterfalls.
So I was happy to find this bird in an attractive lichen-filled setup near Lingtam, Sikkim last week. 
Happy Diwali!

Mourning of Muharram
The rituals associated with 10th day of Muharram in Kolkata are essentially male dominated. However, there are a handful of women who play a significant role at the end of the ritual procession. I am not versed enough to comment on their role - but it is an important one I would guess.
I thought this image brought out the solemnity and sadness associated with the day.

Any case, he is the l toughie of the lot and gets to start new aquariums because you are never sure when one is really ready and stable. He is in a new tank now and gets to pose for you guys!
Fish-keeping is a childhood hobby that I have revived this year :)
