Immersed in the enchanting landscapes of India, my ongoing journey goes beyond mere appreciation for its beauty. Participating in the School of the Wisdom - "Love and Death in Great Spiritual Traditions" at the Blavatsky Bungalow on the TS Campus in Adyar, that was guided by Ravi Ravindra, from January 16 to January 26, 2024, but I am also deeply involved volunteering at Tiruvannamalai.

The moments captured in the four images below celebrate both visual splendor and spiritual exploration, offering glimpses into the rich tapestry of this journey. This dual commitment reflects not just admiration for the people and landscapes but a sincere desire to contribute positively to the communities encountered.

Here I captured the early morning tranquility at Adyar's Theosophical grounds in Besant Nagar, revealing a serene beach scene unfolding amidst the rising sun veiled by a gentle mist or haze

As the day transitions into evening, the same locale metamorphoses, bathing in a warm golden glow from the setting sun

A different facet of this vibrant odyssey comes to life. I took this one at the international premiere of "ARISI: RICE" by the Apsaras Arts Dance Company. This captivating moment unfolded under the auspices of the Madras Music Academy on January 15, 2024, as part of the Usha Marti Subrahmaniam Endowment Dance Program
