“SoundS”
a Photography exhibition by visually impaired students.
At Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur from 12th to 16th feb, 2016

“ I cannot see but my inference is very good, my photography is this!” by Tinku Hazra one of the student, the first guy in black jacket.

I would say if you are in Jaipur and interested in Photography then you must go and listen to this exhibition and have interaction with these students, you might get new perspective.

A collage in the process . . . Where an artist Arvind Jodha wants to bring your attention on the kind of subjects getting more space in media rather then the genuine news. And where is the censorship?
This is from today's leading newspaper. I took this shot today at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur.

Toilet Window at Jaipur Zoo.

Toilet Window at Jaipur Zoo.
I always used to think and heard that there is a very thin line between sanity and insanity. I found out about 12 years back that this was not true. I was approx 25 at that time and was not interested in marriage, was antisocial and was more into arts and creative stuff. My mom thought that I had gone mad so she took me to the psychiatrist. After the thorough examination the dr. said don’t worry mam your son is not mad. He explained it to her that there is a gray area between “Sanity (Ideal socially acceptable condition) & Insanity” and most of the artists live in that gray area only. Anyhow now I even had the certificate that I am not mad.

Yesterday I went to the Jaipur Zoo with my kid and felt the need for pee. I went to the Public Toilet of zoo (everyone knows the condition of public toilets in India) and when I was relieving myself I saw this window. It was broken, dirty, and the wall behind it was in the same condition but light was playing a good role and I loved this frame. I took out my mobile and captured it.

As a Hindu born confused atheist, I from the childhood had been to Vrindavan many times, home of Krishna. When I was kid I use to come here with my parents and grandparents, we use to stay here for couple of days, use to visit and offer prayers in many beautiful temples which are in Vrindavan. Everyone was friendly and spiritual in their own way lost in search of Krishna & Radha. Population or Crowd or Visitors were limited not much, there was space to breath for everyone. There were no hotels there at that time but there were many Ashrams for stay and that was a nice and cheap accommodation. The city, Yamuna Ghats (River side) and Yamuna River were clean and beautiful. I even remember bathing in Yamuna River few times and it was a wonderful experience. Didn’t remember how and when those few days trips turned in to flying visits. In last decade I had been to Vrindavan many times but just went there offered prayer at Banke Bihari Mandir (the main temple of Vrindavan of lord Krishna) and headed back to Jaipur or some other destination.

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary

Big Bird Keoladeo Ghana National Park
First of all I am not a Bird or Wildlife Photographer, Secondly the only reason I went to this place is because my Wife asked me too. It was a short and sweet trip But yes after I visited this place I realized it is a beautiful place for Nature Lovers also (Like Me). I will say if you are a Bird Lover or Wildlife Lover or Nature Lover then you must have to visit this place once, it is a Beautiful place and I will Highly Recommended this place. Remember “I am not a Bird or Wildlife Photographer” so I didn’t had the big guns, I was just carrying 24-105mm lens on Canon 550D body and all these pics are from that only.

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary” or “Keoladeo National Park” or “Keoladeo Ghana National Park” is a man made bird sanctuary which is spread in 29 square Km and is 180km from Jaipur near Bharatpur on the Jaipur – Agra highway. There were more than 400 spices of Birds there but for me mostly there were three kind of birds Small birds, Medium size birds and Big birds. There were many different kind of Small and Big animals also in the Sanctuary.

The Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary remains open round the year from sunrise to sunset.
