His paint makes our homes. 
I wonder, what about his home?

Experimented with in-camera effect, to bring out a different essence to this usual scene around hyderabad old city. Taken from Charminar.

In the film Rush based on a famous Formula 1 Rivalry, one of the protagonists, F1 Champion Niki Lauda says "I accept every time I get in my car there is a 20% chance I could die, and I can live with it, but not 1% more." 
I wonder! This guy, probably as old as I am, when he signed up, did he calculate his percentages? Does he thank god everyday when he goes to sleep that he's not posted on a hostile border? Or does he lament that he only gets to stand and be a showpiece while his brothers-in-arms kill and die for his motherland? I wonder....
