The advent of the creepy - crawlies....

Its pouring out there as I write these words, the windows tightly shut to prevent my computer getting wet! No words today, just pictures...... taken a couple of days back.. Yes, now that the rains have begun, I have started carrying my camera along as we wait for Samhith's bus, managing somehow to click pictures of creepy crawlies, juggling with my mobile and camera in one hand and an umbrella in the other, not to mention trying to stop Samhith from running off into the rain!

Here's our first visitor - a beetle scuttling off in the water......

And these aren't visitors - these are permanent residents - centipedes - but they look a bit more attractive in the rains (If u can call them attractive, that is..)

And if you were wondering how many of these were around, here's a glimpse... that's just one small patch of the wall!!!

And here are a few mushrooms... they grow and disappear miraculously soon!

That's all for now, but the monsoon has just begun... and more creatures are sure to appear soon!


  1. yikes !!

    I'm sorry but centipedes and other crawly creatures are not something I love to see...

    But yes, the monsoon has been great till now. I loving every bit of it...

    sitting at my french window, having a hot cup of chai with pakodas and a good book to read... Aaahhh heaven !! :)

  3. Anu,
    On rains I agree with shyamgovind here.
    Thanks for sharing these creepy creatures. I generally freak out seeing them. :-)

  4. I used to live in a room bordering the Malad Creek some years back. And there was a treasure trove of creepy crawly life on my window sill every day. Pretty scary.

  5. eek! Anu!seriously gross pics!

  6. Juggling with too many things (mobie, umbrella and samhith) and u stil manage to capture these ? I end up dropping my mobile most times even without a camera around :)

    but centipedes and other crawly ones are not my fav too !

  7. Anu at the moment I won't mind them if I got some rain along with it.

  8. This post reminds me of the bite once I got from a was really painful

  9. What a wonderful insight into the monsoon season!

  10. We are still waiting for the rains. The pictures are great.

  11. Great photos! It's nice to see the rain since it's so hot and dry here now. My chickens would like some bugs but not beetles or centipedes.

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
