Strange meetup

I enjoy photographing children, capturing their facial expressions and emotions in their most natural bearing. It’s difficult, though, to not disturb a little human being’s natural state and to let him/her be unaware of us, while a big black camera is watching them. I rarely get good candid photographs. But sometimes, I come across children…

Mumbai

Every time I enter Mumbai, I get an odd and indescribable feeling. A non-monosyllabic feeling . Maybe a feeling of arriving home.

The snow crowned peaks as sharp as an arrow with their inclined limestone beds which are the very reason for the formation and…
