This is the view from the southern minaret of the famous Jama Masjid of Delhi. These minar contains up to 250 winding steps and small holes like these are built for ventilation in the Minar. On a clear day, it's a treat to watch old Delhi through the windows on the top.

Garudan thookkam from Pazhaveed Devi temple Alappuzha
.
.
Garudan Thookkam (Eagle Hanging) is a ritual art form performed in Kali temples of south Kerala, south India. The people who dress up as Garuda perform the dance. After the dance performance, the hang-designate dangle from a shaft hooking the skin on his back. In some places, the ritual is performed colorfully with Garudas taken in a procession. It will be performed in Devi temple during the festival of Meena bharani and Pathamudayam.
.
Legend has it that even after slaying Darika, Kali remained insatiable and thirsty. Vishnu sent Garuda to Kali to quench the thirst. A dancing and bleeding Garuda was taken to Kali and only after getting some drops of blood from Garuda, Kali was pacified. The ritual is performed based on this belief. (Source- Wikipedia)

“A Happy person is not always supposed to be Rich.”
This photo was taken in the potters colony in Uttam Nagar. It depicts the hard life that a woman faces.. A man works and earns for his huse for almost 10 hours a day whereas a woman continuously works hard the entire day to make the house, A Home.
Here, her smile depicts how she is happily making the cow dung cakes (gobar uplas) to cook as well as to stick them on the walls of her house to keep it cooler from the heat outside. “ You don't stop Laughing when you grow old.. You grow old because you stop laughing. ”
