The Peninsular rock agama or South Indian rock agama, Psammophilus dorsalis, is a common species of agama found on rocky hills in south India.

Young and females are olive-brown, spotted, speckled, or marbled with dark brown, and with a series of white, elongated spots along each side of the back. The male has pale brownish colour on the top of the head and back, while the lips are yellowish-brown, and this extends as a strip beyond the ear. A dark brown or black lateral stripe begins behind the eye and broadens to cover the lower sides. The underside is yellow with the throat mottled with grey.

These lizards basks on bare rocks where they are hidden by their cryptic colouration. They feed on insects. The male in the breeding season assumes bright colours. The upper parts become fine vermilion red or yellow, the lip stripe is sometimes pink. The under surfaces, limbs, and tail are black.

Males bask openly on exposed rocks and show head push-up displays. The larger males take up higher perch positions. They flatten their bodies when birds fly overhead

 

This is the typical South Indian breakfast : Idli, coconut chutney and sambar. :-)

South Indian filter coffee is a coffee drink made by mixing frothed and boiled milk with the decoction obtained by brewing finely ground coffee powder in a traditional Indian filter. The drink known as Kaapi, is the South Indian phonetic rendering of "coffee". The drink is also referred to as Madras filter coffee, Madras kaapi, Kumbakonam degree coffee, Mylapore filter coffee, or Mysore filter coffee. Outside India the term "filter coffee" may refer to drip brew coffee, which is a distinct form of preparing coffee.

Coffee has been grown in India since the 1600s, when it was first brought to India from Yemen by Muslim saint named Baba Budan.[1] The most commonly used coffee beans are arabica and robusta. These are grown in different states of South India, such as in the hills of Karnataka (Kodagu, Chikkamagalur and Hassan), Tamil Nadu (Nilgiris District, Yercaud and Kodaikanal), Kerala (Malabar region) and Andhra Pradesh (Araku Valley). The beans are usually medium-roasted and finely ground and blended with roasted chicory. The final coffee powder composition is typically equal quantities of Plantation A and Peaberry with between 10 and 30 percent chicory added in, producing a distinct aroma, thickness and colour in the resulting coffee.

Madurai, the City of Temples in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Its skyline is dominated by the 14 colorful gopurams (gateway towers) of Meenakshi Amman Temple. Covered in bright carvings of Hindu gods, the Dravidian-style temple is a major pilgrimage site. I took this from the roof of one of the antique stores on the main square surrounding the temples. They allow you on the roof in the hope that you will buy some of their goods.

South Indian style !!! prawn masala ! fish fry! fish curry ! Rice !

On the Indian Ocean in Varkala, Kerala State, India

Indian weddings mark not just the union of two souls but rather union of two families/ communities and hence the larger than life celebrations.. The wedding rituals, customs, food and even the bridal / groom wedding dress, jewelry, makeup and hair do are unique to the cultural community they are a part of..

 

The bride in picture is wearing a Silk Saree and has a floral hairdo (called floral jaadey) typical of a traditional South Indian wedding. Bridal Saree/ dress in one of the shades of red, yellow or green is generally considered auspicious for the occasion in most of the cultures (not all though) across India though the bride is free to choose any colour.

 

Chandeshvara Nayanar

The South Indian legend, narrated, for instance, in the Periyapuranam, states that he was born into a Brahmin family and was called Visarasarman. When he was a young boy, he found that cows remain uncared for, and hence he himself commenced tendering and caring for the cows. While doing so, he would pour some milk on a lingam, which he made of sand. The news of this wastage of milk reached the ear of his father, Datta; and he himself came to the field to scold his son. Chandesha was deep in meditation in front of the sand lingam, and he did not see his father. The enraged father kicked the sand lingam. At this Chnadesha’s meditation was interrupted, and he struck his father’s leg with a staff. The staff turned into an axe and his father’s leg was severed. At this point, Shiva manifested himself, and blessed Chandesha, declared that he would become a father to Chandesha; and restored the severed leg of Datta to normal state.

Many thanks to all those who view, fav or comment my pictures. It is much appreciated.

This fellow blends so well with this atmosphere maybe if I had waited longer I could have seen more blending with the stone he was hanging on.

 

Shot this at Wonderla in the outskirts of Bangalore

God Bless the just wedded Couple.

 

One thing I want to mention that in recent times wedding photographers occupy more the front portion of the function stage and become hindrance to relative and friends who are there to view and bless the occasion.

Earlier days photographers maintained some discipline and were precise and fast having confidence of their shot avoiding repetitions allowed others to see the marriage rituals.
