Weekly Photo Contest. Contrast – Cry Freedom

Are You Free? Or, Am I?
Are You Free? Or, Am I?


I took this shot at Jama Masjid in Delhi. I don’t normally put up photos for photo challenges on this blog. However, the topic was irresistible.

July 4 approaches, and the Americans do treasure this date.

For us, August 15 is the day we became a free nation.

I shall return to this topic around August 15.

What is freedom?

Which of the feathered friends is free?

Cry freedom, my friends..


  1. Freedom and many other popular important words have different meanings for different people. It’s like ying and yang. Some want freedom to rob people (it often includes leaders of countries), others want freedom (and weapons) to defend themselves.

  2. Any kind of dependence is giving up of your freedom. We are never really independent in that sense. This picture is an insightful visual reminder of all the chains that bind us.

  3. I believe freedom is responsibility. It is about protecting that which we care about, and doing so by choice.
    I look forward to your August thoughts, Rajiv.
    Fabulous photo!

  4. We stumbled over here coming from a different
    web page and thought I should check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to finding out about your web page for a second
