BIOGRAPHY
PHOTO: Inspired by my father when I was kid, but it was never serious until it became absolute necessary for my graduation at Coffee Biotechnology Centre, Mysore. My initial experiments were on coffee plants and plantations in Karnataka, Kerala and Tamilnadu (also in Mizoram, Northeastern state of India) with Nikon coolpix. I was so happy that, I made very good macro work with coolpix which are in my PhD thesis. I lost many of them when my HP's hard disc crashed. Later when I moved to IISc (place for Science in India), I realized the limitations of P&S. Here I met a guy, who really inspired me to go for SLR. It took two years to build my savings to get my D40 (Science and money never comes together unless you are very lucky). End of 2008, some one came into my life and we started together our journey of life. Lots of fun, travel and the act of knowing each other took most of the time. Mid 2009, moved to France for science. Grenoble, a small town in French Alps, is a place packed with energy. Surrounded by the 3 massifs is the place of origin of French revolution (you don't believe but this is true) and also French resistance. 6th September 2009, Sunday at 5-45 AM, new member joined my family. I am really sorry, I was not with her at that moment, for which, she will never forgive me I guess and also because, I joined her and saw my son for the first time "after three months" (due to official paper work in French administration). With this joy, upgraded to D90 and kept the old lens. Now I have all my time during weekends to spare with my son and its my job to inspire him (well he is very fond of my tripod right now, he carries it always).
