I love old photos because this is the only way I can really see our history. I like to check out the details such as clothing, decorations or food products because is not only interesting to see their habits but also how these evolved during decades or centuries.

If a bomb gets blasted somewhere in Hyderabad city, or Mumbai or New York or London or Sydney, and takes away the lives of some people, it would be reckoned as ‘Terrorist activity’ by the Police and Law. So, taking away the lives of the people and destruction caused to the... Read More
