A lifeline

The river that feeds a state

It always fascinates me when I come across a natural entity that is the lifeline of a community. The river Teesta in Sikkim is one such thing.

It's such a beautiful river, and the drive on the NH31A from Siliguri to Gangtok, takes you alongside this river for a major part of the journey. The river adds to the beauty of the drive and any photographer would love the ride.

A new year is about to set in...

May the fog and haziness give way to clear paths and many more beautiful days as we make our way into the new year.

This is a morning shot in Gangtok, Sikkim.

Satisfaction and Joy

Content

...is being able to go to school without fear, in a society where earlier the moment you turned a teen and are a girl, the only place in the house was the kitchen.

Glad that some things have changed for the better in Bihar.

Finding Oneself

... in a crowd is always a tough task.

More often than not, we start to compare and equate ourselves with someone else and lose our own identity.

The soft side

Look in between the stoned wall

There is always a hard side and a soft side to people.
Sometimes all it takes is a little extra time to actually see between the stoned wall and reach out to the other side of a person. And then you see a beautiful friendship grow.

The beauty of Indian weddings

Precious


I am always happily amazed at the planning, the detailing and the execution of the Indian Weddings! I have been covering and shooting Indian weddings from different states and notice an underlying commonality amongst them.

In the meanwhile if you are aware of anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer do let me know! I am looking to cover weddings all over India for a book that I intend to come up with.

Towering Tall

Mahanagar Mukhyalaya

On a night drive in Mumbai, I noticed this building towering over the road in all its might.
Loved the architecture of it, and in the night yellow light it made it look a lot more beautiful.


I had to stop to take a picture of it.

The shooting game

You shoot I shoot

One of my favorite things to do when I go out for a shoot, is to click photographs of other people taking photographs of something else.

I love it.
