Photographer's Note

uploading this photograph is mostly influenced by our TN friend George Veltchev's recent post on a beautiful sky during sunset and the clouds in it. well though, i had taken this photograph almost seven months back.

clouds, were always my fascination. since childhood. in our time, we had grown up with some lovely poems and stories written by Rabindranath Tagore. that actually made our childhood. there was a story about the world of clouds... their country, their festivals, their people, kings and queens... and so nicely he had related their world with ours that i had no reason to think otherwise. as a kid, i used to sink in those imaginations, and after some days, i could even relate myself with them. that was the beginning :) now i am a Physics teacher, i teach logic and reasons to my students, but i myself couldn't come out of that world of imagination. may be, i never tried to. yes, i don't want to.

this photograph was taken on 5th July, 2011. it was monsoon in India. and i was at bed rest in my house for i met a fatal road accident (it was luck and some people's promptness in sending me immediately to a nearby hospital that made me survive). i was in hospital for few days with fracture in my head and injuries here and there. at that time (in July), though the stitches were gone, and a month had passed, i was not able to walk on my own. i was getting frequent blackouts. my aunt used to be there with me.
it was 5th July. i looked through my bed room window and found, as if, a festival had started in the world of clouds! and i desperately wanted to be with them! first i took my camera and started clicking from my room. but that was not enough. i wanted to feel their enjoyment. for that i had to go to the terrace. but i was not capable of that. i requested my aunt (who, as a matter of fact, was a nurse) and with her help went upstairs.

and it was an EVENT! gorgeous... mind blowing view!! the rest of the day, till after sunset, i stayed there. and i had to call it a 'Cloud Day'. that could only explain the day.

now a bit science. these clouds are Cumulonimbus. that means full of water droplets. that's why they look so heavy and dark. since enough wind was blowing on that day, these clouds were making shapes, creating and changing.... making stories too :)

and since, these clouds by then, had not conquered the entire sky (as they usually do), the sun was in full mood and was shining upon them. which created extra light effects.
