Hi there! I always wished of making a blog wherein I could share in my perspective through my photographs. This is my first blog post. So if you like it, don’t forget to like, comment & and share!
By reading about places, people tend to make a lot of assumptions. So did I. Never knew a pea-sized country like Vietnam would be so beautiful with people having extremely compassionate & big heart! The scenic beauty of Vietnam is breathtaking, the smell of the place is mesmerizing. Presenting to you Vietnam through my lens !
She wore her dresses of ‘respectable’ length and learned to keep her eyes down. She always learnt to listen to everything and not voice her opinion out, lest they labelled her a feminazi. She always left work before it got too dark and didn’t wander out out late at night. She always learnt to enjoy herself, but within limits and didn’t drink too much, because then it would be an ‘invitation’. She always learnt to control her eating habits and didn’t eat what she want for the fear of being called fat. She took up a ‘respectable’ job and didn’t choose her passion, because they say it’s not a girl’s job. She always remained chained within invisible boundaries and didn’t fly free.
One day, she realized something that no matter what she did, people would always have something to say. She realized that people will have their opinions on how you ought to be and how not. She realized that if she spoke up, they’d call her a rebel. She realized that if she kept quiet, they’d label her as meek. And one day, she got tired of the society’s rules on how should not. That day, she let go of all those invisible chains of rules and propriety that the society imposed on her.
That day, she realized what it felt to be free.
And finally, she realized her happiness mattered more than people’s opinions of her. Her wishes came first, not the society’s restrictions. Her wants came first, not the society’s expectations of her. Just like that, she realized that being her was important than anything else and that anything else and that she’d be happier that way.

With a kaleidoscope of music, dance, theatre, literature, food, street stalls, cinema, workshops, visual arts, urban design and architecture and heritage walks in store, the Festival continues to present a melange of arts for the city to savour. The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is a community celebration of the arts within one of the most beautiful and historic precincts of Mumbai, The Kala Ghoda Art District. The Festival has grown exponentially, and is hugely successful, drawing over 150,000 people from all over the city.
Aim is to preserve and refurbish the heritage arts district of Mumbai with the co-operation of local authorities, create and spread multi-cultural awareness through platforms like festivals and events especially amongst those who have little opportunity to access or be exposed to culture.
