As an art-lover I often visits places of Bengal, relating creation and creativity. Whenever I go to those places I feel really lite and free. I take inspirations from the people and their artworks. "village GHURNI"(Krishnanagar, Bengal) is such a place and my most favourite one. Not only because of amazing clay-dolls of that place, but also because of the people. They are really "down to art", dedicated and proud for their creations and of course very welcoming.
That was my 3rd oportunity to visit village Ghurni. After a tiring journey me and one of my friend reached there when it was around 11 a.m.. We were sitting on a rock beside an old pottery shop, then surprisingly I heard a voice of an old man, asking, "where are you guys coming from?" "You looks tired" - The kind person was the old potter in the image - I replied him back. After a little conversation he offered us to have some water and few sweets, called "Batasa", going inside his cottage. We were tired, so we accept his kind proposal instantly. And there in his cottage we met his family. Such a sweet and transparent family! Spending few lovely hours to remember with him and his family I realized the old potter is very emotional about his creations.
After experiencing a nice lunch all together, while I was secretly observing him at his workshop, he was making some idols of Lord Ramakrishna with such a parental care. Meanwhile I felt, "GOD FORMING IN HIS AFFECTION, AND HE WAS WORSHIPING GOD THROUGH HIS CREATION". Then I tried to explore his very own world through this portraiture and named the given.
I remember, there we (me & my friend) spend around 6 hours that day, without knowing when the time flew away. Every time I look at this image, my mind reminds me of those best ever sweet memories of my travel and the example of humanity. 3 years passed away and I haven't visit the place again. Who knows how they doing! But I must go someday again...........
One of the inevitable part of fashion technology is the use of mannequins. As I belongs to Kolkata, India, I got the opportunity to take some pictures of the place where they are manufactured.
Their origin is from some narrow alleys of North Kolkata, in the form of different body parts. They are presented to us wrapped in gorgeous dresses. They are the main attraction of the great lucrative looks of shopping malls. But they start their journey from very filthy, unhygienic places. Their destiny awaits there to.
I got the opportunity to click the picture of an old lady, peeping through the door. She lost her young age beauty and possessing a wrecking structure. This symbolizes the ultimate fate of these beautifully dressed mannequins. It makes me think that our life is no different from a mannequin's.
Capturing a time in one picture is very easy. But showing different forms of time is difficult. So decided to show time in my own way. Only you have to relate your present life situation with this picture Character's & choose the best version of your present, past and future.
