Don’t look at the tents. Look at the stars above them. We never get to see so many stars in the city. Its only when we get to a farm in a remote village, far away from the city lights, that one gets to appreciate the vastness and beauty of the night sky. Just lie down on the ground and stare into the sky. In under an hour, we saw three shooting stars. This world is awesome. Thanks Amar Ramesh for capturing this so beautifully. — at Vaksana Farms, Rettanai Village.
The 100 Day Book Authoring Challenge got kickstarted over the weekend. 17 of us got together for two days at our farm. We unplugged ourselves from usual life to focus entirely on planning and prepping up for our books. Here are some of the snaps from the authoring retreat. http://Kiruba.com/authoring
It was my life’s first experience pitching a tent. I have slept in tents before but not in a tent that we set up ourselves. We pitched this at our Vaksana Farms and a few of us slept in it overnight. We had a very clear sky and the stars added to the surreal experience. To me, one of the best part was the experience of watching the fine tuning of this long exposure shot by Amar Ramesh Photography. — at Vaksana Farms, Rettanai Village.
