I was attending a seminar on book publishing, on my left was this pool where pigeons were drinking water. The beauty was so raw that I couldn’t concentrate on what people were telling from the stage… I had to capture them. The setting sun and the classic white bench in the background were an added advantage. How is this photograph – am still wondering (while loving it)…? Thanks Warmly bt
24 January 2016, Jaipur literature festival’s sunday – a pack day by all means – festival director, author of many books – including ‘City of Djinns’ which is my favorite book on Delhi’s history – William Dalrymple was busy attending and taking care of sessions, guests lectures and that’s when this photograph ‘Portrait of the White Mughal’ was getting born. (‘White Mughals’ is the name of one of his best sellers) .
This shot is so close to my heart.
