My friend Rauf in Chennai, India is a graphic artist and photographer. You can spend hours at his site as the pics are gorgeous and his commentaries about life in India well worth every minute. His take on life is in turn poignant, funny, bittersweet and always self-effacing. I would love to meet the man and see the country.
Here, you can see the faces, wildlife, cities and countryside, the hustle and bustle of daily life and yes, the tranquillity of this most ancient and beautiful part of the planet.
Rauf presents a side of India that is very different from the usual travel or documentary shows we see but I suspect much more balanced. He tells it like it is and with great love.
So check out his blog 'Daylight Again' at:
