A new beginning : Onam, 2018
The year 2018, will be etched in our memories forever, especially for the people of our state Kerala, India. Kerala is still trying to come in terms with the floods and land slides that claimed hundreds of lives and displaced lakhs of people across the state. The state has never witnessed any natural calamity of this magnitude. We saw people of all walks of life coming together to help and support all our brothers affected by this calamity irrespective of caste, creed, religion and believes. And this itself, is the essence of Onam.
Usually Onam is marked by 10 days of unlimited celebrations. Starting from Atham, celebrations culminate to reach its peak on the 10th day, celebrated as Thiruvonam. But this year, this Onam, is going to be the Onam of rebuilding , Onam of sharing and Onam of new beginnings. I urge each and everyone reading this page to contribute generously to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund ( https://donation.cmdrf.kerala.gov.in ).
This Onam is also a new beginning for my long cherished dream of setting up my studio space. As the work is in progress, I took up my first fully independent professional shoot with a professional model. We decided to divide the shoot into two phases, one, an Onam themed indoor shoot and the other, we are still finalising on the theme and style. Anyways, we did the Onam shoot during the first week of August, 2018 at my home premises itself.
