    Changing Guards

    Lowering of US Flag



    The New Iraq Flag Hoisting



    US Army troops of the 1st Cavalry division's 2nd Battalion salute as the Stars and Stripes flag is lowered to half-mast, during a dawn ceremony in which the Iraqi flag was raised for the first time at a base in south eastern Baghdad on June 29, 2004. The battalion shares the base with Iraq's National Guard. The United States handed over sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government on Monday, two days before the schedule, in a surprising move probably aimed at thwarting any terrorist attempts.

    Sunsets

    Sunsets are the most beautiful things! An event that occurs at the end of each day, an event that most of us hardly stop to look at. Each sunset seems to be different from the rest. Each appears to have its own mood/personality. Below are some pictures of sunsets. You'll see what I mean.

    "Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink..!"


    Eleven year old boy, Neel Saikai, 11 fills a bucket from a submerged tube well at Hajo, some 35 kms east of Guwahati, on June 25, 2004. Four more people have drowned in rising waters across the country, bringing to 21 the death toll from floods which began this week and which have already displaced 220,000 people from 200 submerged villages in Assam.

    7 September 2004 (Every year)

    Mumbai celebrates the birth of Krishna, one of the cheekier Hindu gods, with lots of pots of yoghurt....and human pyramids.

    Lord Krishna, an incarnation of the Hindu God Vishnu, combines light-hearted mischievousness with omnipotence. His childhood was spent flirting with milkmaids and stealing butter kept beyond his reach by his parents. On his birthday, the enthusiastic residents of Mumbai string pots of curd and butter between buildings and the brave form human pyramids to get at them, so mimicking his exploits.

    is it a bird?






    Bird's Head and Bomberai Peninsulas of Indonesian Papua



    Visible from 800km away in space is the verdant rainforest that covers the distinctive Bird's Head or Doberai Peninsula of the island of New Guinea, together with the Bomberai Peninsula below it.

    This Envisat Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) acquisition shows the western part of New Guinea, just before Borneo as the single largest island in the tropics and the second largest island in the world after Greenland.
