Peace For The New Year


JenT and Cardinal Guzman, both bloggers, published posts on the topic of 2016 in review.

It got me wondering what had stuck a chord with my readers in 2016. In fact, nothing did the way one photo got a lot of attention a couple of years ago. It is this photo of a auto-rickshaw driver in Delhi. I think someone in Delhi who recognised the driver must have come across the photo and then his friends and everyone in Delhi looked for it.


Back to the photo at the top of this article. I saw it in the folder on my hard drive today and want to make it the motto for the coming year. And the motto is – Peace.


  1. I spent several months in Delhi. Drove auto rickshaws all over the place. It’s the easiest way to get around in Delhi. ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. And great for improving one’s nerves ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely portraits! The colors do so much also to set the mood.

    1. It’s interesting that you mention it. I didn’t ‘think’ about the colours of clothing when I was in India – women wore coloured saris, monks wore red robes, but I didn’t think it was colourful. I mean, it seemed natural. If I saw a street of women wearing saris or monks wearing red robes in England, then I would think it was colourful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Amen to that wish. 2016 has been such a volatile year that I will be happy to see the back of it, however, I suspect we are heading into “interesting times.”

    Looking forward to seeing/posting more photos in 2017. ๐Ÿ™‚
