About Delhi Photography Club
 
Delhi Photography Club was setup with the intent of taking photography homes. The purpose of the DPC is to stimulate, enable, and nurture a fraternity of photography enthusiasts for mutual benefit.
 
Due to fast changing internet and mobile devices space, many more people are consuming photos. We want people to store their memories more beautifully. The club is perhaps the first initiative of this kind in the entire country.
 
To offer situations to practice photography, we do free photo walks every month. For learning the technique, we have workshops for various levels (beginner and intermediate), for motivation, we offer memberships and finally for platform, we have these exhibitions. The club also helps the underserved children to express themselves creatively through its outreach activities.
 
As a club, we have brought together businessmen, diplomats, doctors, lawyers, homemakers, students and children and helped them in their creative expression using a camera.

About Pushkar Fair

The sprawling annual festivities of the 100 year old Pushkar Mela through its dramatic collage of diversified pictures, mirrors the vibrancy of the gracious state of Rajasthan. It is celebrated for five days from the Kartik ekadashi to Kartik Poornima, the full moon day of Kartik (October–November) in Hindu calendar. The full moon day is the main day and the day, according to legend, when the Hindu god Brahma sprung up the Pushkar Lake, thus numerous people swim in its sacred waters. This iconic fair attracts thousands of livestock and almost a million tourists including many from across the world.

Then & Now

The original intention behind the Pushkar Camel Fair was to attract local camel and cattle traders to do business during the holy Kartik Purnima festival. Today the Pushkar Mela creates a stir among travellers with its awe-inspiring celebrations at this grand event cherished with life oozing activities, cultural and musical events, thrilling camel safari tours and a stay in the traditional yet modern camps. Images of silver bells making heart pleasing jingles, animals walking over sparkling sand dunes and beautifully decked up camels with their owners sitting on their backs has become the most fascinating norm at this stunning cultural retreat. A huge carnival is held, with an array of musicians, magicians, dancers, acrobats, snake charmers and carousel rides to entertain the crowd. The grand occasion of the Pushkar Mela is definitely a priceless treat for those who wish to eye the vibrant culture and traditions of Rajasthan.

“ॐ (AUM ) and its significance. by Shri Vinod Goel

Commonwealth

We nature lovers always tries to find out something different from our surroundings whether it is fauna , flora or the sky. Of course during the rainy season when most of the wildlife parks and the sanctuaries are closed except for the Southern India we look to the clouds which gives us chance to imaging as lot of patterns are formed among the clouds and it depends upon the viewer what he has in mind and what he is looking for.

Om1

In the morning hours I always try to look towards the sky before the sun rises and even afterwards and one may be lucky to observe a lovely pattern which one relate to a known thing. Recently a viewer happens to see a Shivalinga in the sky. Another viewer observed lord Budhha in the clouds. I too is in search of something unique for a long time .

It was on 15th of July 2017 when I appear to have seen the formation of AUM in the sky. But really not satisfied. Again search .It was a better representation of AUM which I was looking for on 27th of July 2017.

What is so special about AUM ?

Om

It is considered as most sacred and powerful utterances across all Dharmic traditions of India whether it is Hinduism, Buddhism ,Jainism or even Shikhism as Omkar.

In Sanatan Dharma AUM is the most powerful and spiritual symbol. It is often found at the beginning and end of many mantras.

Adi Shankracharya in his review states that Aum is a symbolization of Atman .

As per Shiva Puran –Shiva is declared to be Aum and Aum is Shiva .

It encompasses all words and all kinds of sounds of the universe.

It represents all the three fold divisions of time ie PAST ,PRESENT and the FUTURE.

The AUM mantra when chanted sequentially activates the stomach ,spinal chord ,throat ,nasal zone and the brain. The energy moves from the abdomen all the way up to brain thereby channelizing energy and activating the super consciousness of our being.

It has a very clear and physiological affect on the body.

Lord Ganesha is identified with AUM or OM . Ganapathi Atharvashirsa refer to this association. Even one can see similarities between the shape of Ganesha body in the iconography and shape of AUM in the Devanagri and Tamil script.

Let us enjoy the beauty of the AUM through the images from the nature .”
