For past few days we wake up to chirping of hundreds of birds, some kind of cacophony. But after a while, it becomes very silent. It has become a regular feature, the noise followed by total silence.
This tree outside our balcony becomes host to a group of visiting birds, they enjoy the hospitality and get busy with their gossip or maybe business plans and at times arguing loudly.
This is somehow not liked by the mob of crows who rule the trees in the vicinity, they come as a gang and make the chirping birds fly away.
But this mob has a Godfather, an eagle who is the ultimate boss, the crows also dread to be in his company. The tree becomes deserted when the eagle makes an entry and silence takes over after chirping & caws.

13 years back, I was trying to establish myself as a professional photographer, photography was undergoing a transition, film was getting phased out and digital technology was taking over. Books and magazines were major sources of information and knowledge.
One magazine which has been on my subscription list since then, which I still read from front cover to back cover without fail every month, a magazine which helped me in expanding my knowledge base, Smart Photography, is celebrating 13 years of existence. And in the 13th Anniversary issue, I am one of the chosen 13 photographers in India from various genres to be featured. Thank you Smart Photography for the honour and wishing you many more years of success.
