A tribute to ordinary Indian citizens who have dedicated themselves to improving the lives of people around them. Their inner resources – vision, will, commitment, energy compensate for their lack of financial resources. They operate in the shadows, away from the glare of and glitz of fame and fortune. Their stories are inspirational. They teach us how can we beat all odds if we harness and channel our inner resources. UNSUNG tells the stories of nine amazing people from across India. The book was about 5 years in the making and in a way produced against many odds.

It features evocative B&W photographs by photographer Mahesh Bhat and text by the well-known journalist Anita Pratap. A part of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the causes of the Unsung Heroes featured in the book.

This book is collection of projections from my conscious and unconscious mind. Through my photographs, I have explored how the city has changed in the last 25 years. This is also an impassioned plea to support the arts and creativity to drive the true growth of Bangalore. It is not about the old versus the new nor is it about the history of the city, it is about what the city can be – Mahesh Bhat ”

“If Bangalore was a song and the lyrics were the ages the cityhas seena” this book, quite incomparably, is the tune the city hasbeen searching for all these years” – DNA, Feb 12, 2012
