It’s the biggest day for People of Thimi

The 2nd day of Thimi’s bisket jatra starts early morning. It’s fun to be watch locals carrying the god’s chariot on their shoulders. Whole Thimi’s street turns into orange on this day. It’s a hard work to take pictures in such crowd where the road is small and lots of colour powder are flying.

I capture some moments in my camera, hope it will make you feel that you were at Thimi to celebrate this festival.

Here goes one of the many chariots we see on the day

Bayon Temple, Siem Reap

It’s been a long time that I planned to travel and this time I did manage to do some travelling. I had planned to go to Myanmar this time, but due to some technical problems I could not; but instead made a memorable trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia and Roi Et city and the village around it in Thailand. This time I had my friend Mr. Hoan from Vietnam to travel with me.

My last visit to Siem Reap was not quite satisfactory to me as I had missed visiting many monuments due to lack of proper information. This time around, I did not want to miss a single monument and capture them through my lens. I had heard about the sunrise at Angkor Wat was amazing to see. So, one of my main objective of this trip was to get there and capture and feel the early morning moment.

In some of the blogs and articles it was mentioned that at this time there are very few people around but when I reach there I got to know what few people really meant. It was already over crowded but was less than the crowd I saw during the daytime in my last visit. Some photographers were already position for their best shot and I had to adjust with some of them with the space left over there.

The Rock Pub, Bangkok

Without music, life would be dull. Music has all the taste according to your mood. When there is a celebration time, music is always on, and guess what people says? Let’s rock man. Bangkok city is full of entertainment of all kinds. It is your choice which one you would love to take as your source of entertainment.

I have always been a rocker. Since the first day I have came to Bangkok, I always looked for a place where they have live music or a place where they play rock music. At the beginning of my days in Bangkok, I was somewhat frustrated, as I did not go out too much and so had no idea where they play such type of music which was according to my taste.

Province of Kanchanaburi - Thailand

Kanchanaburi

I had a week long vacation this time; and due to the vacation being very short, I could not to go Nepal to celebrate Tihar. So there were few options for me to go around in this free time. I had plans to go Burma (Myanmar) or Seam Reap, Cambodia. However, due to tight budget I had to abandon it as well.

Still I wanted to go some new places near Bangkok for photography. There is a train station near my hostel, Thonburi railway station. Since the day I arrived Bangkok, I wanted to take that train ride. Therefore, I thought this is the week I will make that dream trip.

Headbangers

Before I talk about the songs that made me a head banger, I want to share my opinion on hard rock and heavy metal music. Music pundits try to separate these two genre of music as different sect of the rock music, but for me they are synonymous to each other. They play fast, they are loud, and they scream and have great guitar riffs. We cannot differentiate some bands. We find they are part of heavy metal but they say we are not heavy metal band and some bands do not sound like heavy metal but are in the list of heavy metal band.
