Oh no!

This is a photo of mine that was published by FLOP Magazine in their Oct 2009 issue. I found out about it whilst I was away from home on a Eurotrip for a couple of months and the news (that the photo was being published) made me very happy back then ... it had something to do with being alone at that point and hearing some really good news, which made me feel a thousand times better ...

I am posting it on my blog today because I just found out that the magazine is shutting down ... I am very, very sad to hear that considering this magazine has been my utopia for almost a year now. So, all my friends who see this post, please visit http://www.flopmagazine.com/ (or click on the title of this post to be directed to the magazine website) any time this month and pay your homage - April end FLOP will do their last issue ... *sniffles*

Dear Arvind,

Glad you like the picture. Its very simple. I had taken a picture of some beautiful clouds whilst flying in a plane from delhi to chennai around sunset, thus the warm colours. Guys from FLOPMagazine basically did the mirror image thing with the picture and so it looks like this :)

G2 - I had even recommended your blog on FLOP Magazine because I thought it was hilarious and the people there really liked it. Wanted you to come and post on FLOP ... but alas!

Ch'mma - yes on photoshop. we create a mirror image of a photo, that's what's been done here as well. :D clouds can mean/seem so many diff things to diff people ... happy you like. love, molooo!

Great pic for sure... and even more photoshop work to beautify the pic to much more captivating memories! When I looked at the image in an enlarged form, I could imagine so many things.. heart, angels on top... Too good!
