About this series

It is the universally acknowledged truth that dance is the hidden language of the soul. This collection was created when some synchronised steps were made alive by emotions and when the vibrant sky took part in celebrating a creative and divine art form from another artist's creative perspective.

The bits of advice bestowed from the rich Indian culture and its mythological stories have the same effect in even the modern era as it teaches -

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन ।

“Do not worry about the outcome, keep working, keep flowing like a river full of stones, and keep blooming amidst thrones.”

A stunning Bharatanatyam artist who expresses her devotion and shares her practice of eternal peace with her dance is captured in this collection. Within this collection, you will witness one artist celebrating another artist's creativity and trying to portray its beauty. The photographer's humble efforts to not just capture mere dance poses but to bring out the divinity that any art and artist's art form’s birth can be seen in this collection. From the “mudras” depicting naughty Krishna meeting Radha, Radha's portrayal as a Vasaksajja Nayika as she gets dressed to meet her beloved, and Lord Shiva's symbolising existence which leads to purity and salvation, this collection envelops all the themes (love, life and salvation) that the artists try to birth in a world rapidly traversing towards a mechanism. Thus, these photos work as visual treats to be hung in your bedroom, as wall pieces for your house, office or art studio, as the sunset colours, depth and energy of the collection transport people to a meditative world.

Like smiles, photographs are the universal language. When I started doing photography as a hobby, people started making fun saying “there is no fun left in medical science anymore”. I am a doctor by profession. Taking photography as a hobby turned into a passion for me. It was like a medium to interact with the outside world and not get caught in my turtle shell. I see photos as staying with a moment. You can hold those moments in your hand lifelong. It can defeat time for once.

Forceps, knife or Canon I can run both with equal efficiency now and proofs are my patients and these photos with a stunning array of colours and visuals. Photographs have a language, yes, they speak. They can educate you, wake you up, shake you up. In history, we have seen images that shook the world.

Every photo I click tells a story. For me, this is to show the world what I see at any cost, suffer hardships, roaming in extreme weather, patiently wait for hours for just one click, take extraordinary risks, all to capture and convey the story. It is a journey which tells me “May you never stop”
