Set against the background of unfathomable sky and the boundless sea, standing as it is on the coast for a thousand five hundred years is Mahabalipuram (near Chennai, Southern India). Would have been there a zillion times before, right from the kindergarden to "beat it" singing (yep, MJ's!) school excursions and then to ''motorcyle diaries'' wannabe days from college! But, never felt like i did this time when i was there this time - early in the morning at the shore temple...the eerie quiet, cyclone skies, - truly humbling. Must tell you, the place looked so different from what i remembered - meaning it was so well maintained...guess the Unesco Heritage listing did help! Anyways, poor light, cloudy skies... dint really get that sun rise by the shore temple that i wanted to shoot....but then, these pictures dont look too bad at all!!
