Invitation Card for His Holiness Dalai Lama's Function

When I was Working on the Stage Designing Project for His Holiness Dalai Lama's visit to Mumbai the organizers asked me if I could also design an Invitation card for the function. They said it was urgent and they wanted the first draft within a day. In a very short span of time, it was a very challenging work but finally it gave me a great satisfaction.......

First Draft
Well appreciated First Draft was followed by a convincing Final Design...

His Holiness Dalai Lama Stage Designing Project

His Holiness Dalai Lama's function was organised by Bihar Foundation, Mumbai on 19th Feb 2011.The Bihar Foundation contacted me for the stage designing for this function. They wanted the stage design to include Nalanda University and Lord Buddha. At first they wanted to create a 3D stage.

It was decided that the background so created would reflect that  His Holiness Dalai Lama is speaking from The Nalanda University, the first and biggest university of its time. The Image of Lord Buddha in the sky symbolizes his blessings.

After the design was finalized the organizers decided on  a 2D backdrop so the design was printed and used in the background.

The function was a huge success and my design was appreciated. For this I was awarded by Union Minister of Tourism Shri Subodh Kant Sahay and Bollywood singer Shri Udit Narayan.

Colours of INDIA

Colours of INDIA
Saffron, White and Green 

These photographs were taken almost 2 years ago when I was in Ansal Plaza one evening. I saw coloured lights on the Ansal Plaza Tower. So, I thought of experimenting with the Night Mode  in my Sony Cybershot camera. I took a lot of photographs but I thought that these 2 looked the best among all of them and they have all the three colours of our National Flag.
