Did you know that there are several cities within Bangalore? Did you know that a centuries old festival is beacon of communal harmony in Bangalore? Did you know that Chamarajpet in south Bangalore was the cultural centre of the city and shaped many a writers, artists and musicians? Did you know about the Jazz scene of Bangalore in the 40s? To discover a unique perspective of the city that has never been photographed or written about before, buy this independently published Bengaluru/Bangalore In First Person Singular. Through my photographs, I have explored how the city has changes and the constants that have shaped the city. This book is 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.
“The book is a celebration of India, people and the land.. It is an inspiring effort and demonstrates what can be achieved by photography.” The Hindu
