I am Strong
I’ve been through a bit in my life and I’m still standing
I have self worth
It took a lot of soul searching to finally see for myself
I am beautiful
I don’t need anyone to tell me, I already know my glow
I am not perfect
Nobody is perfect but I’ve seen my good and bad sides
I am just myself
I will never be alone, I will always be there for me

To explore the city inside out me and a friend of mine decided  to travel in local chakada(public transport) instead of calling a private cab. While travelling I was just goofing around with the camera and was taking picturing of him just for fun and was also clicking the streets around. Suddenly the chakada stopped to pickup more passengers. And these three ladies climbed in wearing their traditional Nawarri Saree. Confidence in her eyes, strength in her body line caught my attention. I was hell scared to click her. So initially I was faking the clicks and the moment I got the perfect picture my focus narrowed to the ladies and I removed my friend out of the frame.

Its my first photograph ever clicked that too from my friend’s camera. That was the time when i never found a story in a photograph neither the compositions or framing or any other aesthetics. So may be this call bell was a call for me to find my connections with photography.

While waiting in auto rickshaw for signal to go green a poor boy came to me with a tower of books. Books seem pirated to me. He was totally unaware of the fact that he was committing an immense crime. An innocent criminal I found on the streets of a never stopping city.
