Unusual monsoon pics: Shiva and the sea
We invited readers to send in their interesting monsoon snapshots. Here is the next set of responses -- and you can share yours too!
We invited you to send in unique monsoon-themed photographs -- odd scenes that are captured on a lens for posterity -- to share with other readers. Here is the next set of responses!
First up we received this interesting image from Pallavi Shivakumar, who says, "I went to Manipal last week for my son's college admission. We then decided to take a trip to the Mookambika and Murudeshwar temples. The South-West Monsoon is at its peak now on the Malabar Coast. The statue of Lord Shiva at Murudeshwar, with the dark, grey, rough Arabian Sea as the backdrop looked awesome in the heavy rain. Lord Shiva is the Lord of Destruction in Hindu mythology and this scenery seems to remind us of that -- man can never tame nature. This photograph was taken from the top floor of the nearby temple tower."
Share your interesting monsoon snapshots with us! They could be from anywhere across India or the world, but they have to be original.
Simply e-mail your photographs to email@example.com (subject line: 'Unusual monsoon pics') -- we'll publish the most interesting ones on rediff.com and in India Abroad. And make sure to include a little write-up of where you clicked the snap.
Remember, the theme is the monsoons, so your photograph has to gel with the season. Hurry and send in your entry today!
