Her Sad Eyes

Sad upon her eyes left her face in a forlorn frown. 
Where, tears once existed, patched in salt upon her cheeks. 
Not a word was spoke, from lips that no longer wish to speak. 
As a world of billowy clouds, surround a plummeting, sundown. 
While a fresh blue moon grazes within her saddened eyes. 
A bounty lay upon her heart for a love wandering in a world of lost. 
In a life that lingers upon the doors to loves rift within a heartless frost. 
Reaching out to a darken night, forbidden to the stars within her skies. 
From a world of rubble buried upon her soul for a man that she does miss. 
Her dormant eyes laced within the brackish descent of clear-eyed tears. 
Now tells the complete sad tale of her heart from eyes that can only leer. 
As her eyes rest heavily, for one last time on her lips for that final kiss.

Pujo and Beyond

 Every Bengali has atleast one album in his/her facebook profile named 'Durga Pujo', containing photos of pandal hopping and the main idol framed from different angles. Those wishing to explore the photographer inside them, frame different other subjects including some candid moments. And for those who are photogenic, their album has more to do with their own photos and less with durga pujo.
I fall under the category of those who wishes to click candids, but is limited by time and gears. This years durga puja was the worst in my life. Never in my life had I spent such a puja. No outing and no pandal hopping for a single day. The reason is obviously something personal and not meant to be shared. However I managed a couple of hours at the daybreak of Ashtami. I would like to call it a photowalk rather than a puja outing or pandal hopping. Sharing some of the photographs

That post went Controversial

This is one of the best random and the most debated   snaps I ever took.

One of my earliest photos after buying a digi cam and later edited using photoscape. Now, this was just a sudden click during a visit to the Victoria Memorial with my parents, more than three years ago. I didn’t even take a proper look at the camera screen until I returned home. I took the decision of uploading it in my facebook account which was very new then. But who knew that the decision would make me unpopular among friends.
Things started to worsen when one of my classmates claimed to have seen this same image in google, however with the name of a different photographer inserted in it. Although he failed to provide any proof, but his words drew the attention of a lot of other classmates, and soon I was renamed as “photo chor” among many.
The next big thing took place when I shared this photo in a facebook page. People are right when they say that photos and poems should not be shared in public facebook pages. But people new in the social world hardly pay any ear to that. The post got less likes and more comments, comments stating that this is a stolen photo from google image. I have seen this image being uploaded by others with my logo being replaced by theirs ( the © symbol was inserted later on ).
I am obviously not the best photographer in town, neither am I the best photographer of my age. But the events related to this single photograph made me what I’m today, a better photographer than I ever imagined to be. It taught me the lesson that people will make it sure to criticize and create stories unless you earn yourself a degree, unless they physically notice you doing your job. And lastly, made me understand that the work was close to those you find in google images

The "About Me" Post

The Taurus are quite calm and serene, but when bothered, they will turn wicked and 

dangerous. There is a double world within them, a normal world and another spiritual and 

enigmatic to the extreme.

A B.Tech student in Electrical Engineering. Some 'friends' say I engineering is not meant for

 me. So do I, but would love to prove them and myself wrong. I never made any 

achievements at state level. But in my schooling, I got certificated in painting level 


I am a self-taught photographer, currently linked to a Kolkata based photographers' group. 

Apart from the mentioned above my interest also lies in technical designing, robotics, 

human anatomy and psychology.

Have been trying to discover my purpose in life. Hope to find the answer before its too
