Danushkodi...... A Tale.....

All these photographs were shot by me in a place called "Danushkodi" which is in south India.

There is no proper road to this place, need to hire a 4X4 jeep to reach..

This place was once an important entry point to India with all facilities like Railway station, and other government offices,
But then, A cyclone storm with high velocity winds and high tidal waves hit this town on 22nd December 1964 causing heavy damages
all dwelling houses were blown to pieces in the storm and marooned. In addition hundreds people died in this cyclonic storm.

I have recently visited this place to see people living in small numbers. they are with out even basic facility of electricity. This is the only place in the worls where I see the earlier generation has got a better life than the current one...its really pathetic !!

you will feel your heart heavy when visiting this place.

We all know Climate change is one of the main reasons for these type of tropical cyclones.

Its more justifiable if we suffer because of our mistakes and faults, but what those innocents have done to experience those disasters !
They even don't know what is climate change and global warming but they have become the victims of that, so pathetic....
Now its our call ! we have to do something about it............
small or big but we should start NOW !!!

Its a WAKE UP CALL Friends !

With love to nature....

The rain.... the freshness....

Yesterday evening,
I was just crossing the road and it was drizzling, thought I can reach my place which is very nearby but, before that rain came and I was completely wet.
I cursed for a moment and ran, reached home and started searching my towel to make myself dry and comfortable, that moment I realized something, I felt fresh both on body & sole !
I wouldn't have been that fresh even if I have taken a full bath with so called nature soaps and shampoos... I am sure many of you would have experienced this by one time or the other !

Here I would like to share some of my shots took just after rain, you can see the freshness and beauty of the nature...... you literally can't get this effect by spraying water on the flower... !
These shots are taken in Kodaikanal, Tamilnadu.

About me in simple words...

Hi friends....

Welcome to my page,

Some may know me and some may not, but for both the below is about me in simple words as I am :

My name is Muniswara Raja.PL and friends call me Munish !

My native is Chettinad near karaikudi the place is called "Kanadukathan" which is very famous for its cuisines world-over. Its also famous for some of the best architectural excellence.
I am brought-up in Chennai from childhood and done my schoolings in Chennai only.
After my education i was in Hosur and Bangalore for quite some years and back to chennai by 2005.

I started my career as mechanical engineer and currently working as Project leader in a MNC in Chennai.

The one big reason for starting my blog is my "Love on Photography", Its like love at first sight.... since my childhood I am more attracted towards photography, I look more on the photographs on my text books and magazines, I love movies with good cinematography irrespective of its content and language. All these years I have been a good fan of photographs and the real learning started recently, now I understand one has to be a good fan to be a good photographer too !
I am still learning and will learn for ever, Photography is an ocean and there is nothing called "I am done". Every time I take my cam out of my bag, I learn something new and its worth calling a MAGIC TUTOR !

I don't want to take more of your time.....and in this blog,
I will be posting more of photographs and story behind that.... hope you will enjoy it....your comments are most welcome in both directions....

Have a time ahead !
