Beauty Destroyed by the Beast

I shot this picture at a granite quarry close to Bangalore. Sited enroute to the Bengaluru International Airport, this mountain has been quarried since the past over 30 years. The exploitation of nature continues full swing with modern technologies and vehicles such as the lorry pictured above. In my opinion the title reflects the image. I am pretty sure before quarrying started to batter the rocks on this mountain it was a place of great beauty and serenity. Now thanks to greedy human beings the mountain is almost gone, and what remains is an ugly facade of broken rock, dust and the residue of pollutants emitted by the vehicles, and equipment used to destroy the rocky cliff.

Auction Deals On Coveted Items!!!

How would you like to buy your favorite gadget, say an iPad or an iPod Touch for 99% discount off its original price? I am sure each one of us would love it and grab such a deal with both hands. Well days of waiting are over, you can get that kind of deals on a brand new penny auction website known as dealfun. I first read about on one of the prospective user's blog. My interested was piqued and I immediately visited Dealfun website and investigated. First things first, the website is genuine, they do offer all the fantastic products that are seen on the homepage. It is a penny auction site with a difference, dealfun guarantees a win within the first 24 hours of your registration and they will reset your deals after that. I haven't come across any auction site which resets your deals immediately after the first win. The good deals doesn't end there. There is a free shipping deal going on right now on all products. You get products at a throw away price and then you don't even pay for shipping it to your place. Isn't a true American-style deal? I am sure you'd be willing to buy half the products on dealfun if only you would be allowed to.
