Today, I’m sharing an Article that I wrote and published in The Guardian a few month’s ago. I hope you enjoy it.

GET READY FOR THAT ONE FAMILY MEMBER WHO DOESN’T APPROVE. Most artists I’ve met including myself have almost similar stories growing up as little kids and wanting to become professional artists in future, but there’s always this one person that will strongly disapprove of this choice. In my case, a very close family friend played this ‘role’ perfectly. I visited his family one Sunday afternoon to say ‘hi’ to the new born baby, and while I enjoyed the delicious plate of white rice & stew his wife prepared, I never forgot his exact

Be Present


Pay attention, when someone is speaking, when you’re at a lecture, when you’re reading something, when you’re watching a TV show, Pay Attention.

I was the boy who was always in line for horse riding during funfairs and picnics. However, my first “permanent” encounter with horses was at age 8.

You probably heard that nothing worthwhile comes easy, as an entrepreneur experience has taught me that. I started my photography journey a few years ago, Yes with those cameras, back in the days of film photography. It was hard being a rookie with a film or analog camera. I remember vividly how I lost tons of money using the same setting for outdoor shoot and shooting with the same setting indoor. There was no LCD to ‘Chimp’ (Chimping is a colloquial term used in digital photography to describe the habit

Visions Of The Future


I recently discovered ‘Festim Toshi’ (probably an Alias), and they had a Fashion piece tagged “Visions Of The Future”. Insanely cool stuff.
