Finding Mary.

Warm teacups and napkins perfectly in place, waiting patiently.Window curtains flowing and the food was warm.She was alone when they found her.With no sign of a forced entry nor a panic stricken exit.Mary appeared exactly a month after it dissapeared….without it’s crew.Right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.



Gyan Ban Thoughts - The Mary Celeste set sail around Nov 5,1872. About a month later it was found in the Atlantic Ocean unmanned and apparently abandoned, despite the fact that the weather was fine and her crew had been experienced and able crew.The ship had been at sea for a month and had over six months' worth of food and water on board. The cargo was virtually untouched and the personal belongings of passengers and crew were still in place, including valuables. The crew was never seen or heard from again. Their disappearance is often cited as the greatest maritime mystery of all time.Theories range from paranormal explanations involving hypothetical extraterrestrial …

Pensive

After all the stakes were so high. He oscillated role playing from what he'd do if he screwed up to what he'd do if he succeeded.

Edwina Mountbatten had died in her sleep.







Gyanban thoughts – Lord and Lady Mountbatten served as, respectively, the last Viceroy and Vicereine of pre-Partition India. Jawaharlal Nehru and Edwina Mountbatten shared a strong platonic frienship,perhaps borderlining on romance.Some secrets are forever wrapped in pages of history and only a few people know the exact nature of their relationship. The prime minister displayed exemplary courage to set aside personal grief and engaged with the important foreign dignitaries visiting Hyderabad House that evening.The final Goodbye t…

Lights,Camera - Action.

My studio lights are always glowing.She spins, clicks, laughs and swirls her hair.Her hands are smooth,feeling the metallic bulge.I look at her mischevious eyes and they tell a story.

Click.

She’s got to be crazy,I manage to grin.
Click.
She starts to laugh hysterically.
