Rhythm

Bharatnatyam is one of the oldest forms of Indian classical dance. Probably, we would recognize it only as a form of art but it is beyond that; it is the magic of one of the richest cultures, India. The greatness of this traditional recital pattern will be apparent even from a purely aesthetic point of view. The beginning, which is based on rhythm alone, brings out the special charm of pure dance. The movements relax the dancer's body and thereby her mind, loosen and coordinate her limbs, and prepare her for the rest of the dance. Rhythm has a rare capacity to concentrate. The beginning is the most valuable and formed in such a way that it sets the dancer free from distraction, making her single-minded.

The dancer, Anjani is justifying the form as a grammar of dance, Bharatnatyam. With her flawless “mudras”, she depicts lord Krishna walking on a bank of the river Yamuna when he is heading slowly to meet her beloved Radha. The softness in his walk and the melting of his heart can be seen in this form through the pose the artist takes and the glow of the face reflects the joy of that excitement to see your love soon.

This magnificent pose is perfect for any wall and would definitely bring joy to your mind; I would call it a “second of meditation” because when I look at this, it brings me a smile.

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”
