For me, Culture has no language it made by our Unity. Which means to me "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam". It is a Sanskrit phrase meaning that the whole earth is one family.

The entire sky would be in her Palm because she is created by God so freedom is her Birth-Right and knowledge is the key to the locks the society shackles of the females, it gives Wings to fly her in the open Sky.
— What does Dialogue of Cultures mean personally to you?
— For me, Culture has no language it made by our Unity. Which means to me "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam". It is a Sanskrit phrase meaning that the whole earth is one family. The first word is made up of three Sanskrit words - Vasudha, Eva and Kutumbakam. Vasudha means the earth, Eva means emphasizing and Kutumbakam means a family. "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam philosophy that inculcates that the whole world is one family.
A garden with diverse flowers with diverse fragrances , colors and adoration looks beautiful and gives divinity to the garden. I feel like Diversity of culture and tradition is our pride and divinity. In India, there are many different peoples living together, therefore, India is known as a country of "Unity in Diversity".
The well-matched co-operation between people of different groups living in a single society. Unity in Diversity itself is a slogan which shows the sense of oneness among people in spite of their physical or psychological barriers. Same I realised In Russia, which was my first International journey that is another heaven on Earth. The Russian are the real image of this common phrase because of their oneness though they come from different culture and tradition. Where people inspires people and are used to motivate people during any event or campaign celebration.
I've heard somewhere that "The World is a book and those who do not travel read only a page". Russia was my favorite page of that book where I bookmarked with the memories for my life long. Being a Photographer is the way to speak out and through which I can understand people and theirs feelings without borders, I adopt this frame of mind. "I stop thinking of the borders of our countries" when I start clicking. Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul. A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.
— Have you ever been to Russia before and St. Petersburg? What were your expectations?
— I have been Russia first time, it was my first International journey where I was Celebrating the feeling of brotherhood. it was beyond my expectations, but it was very short trip next time I hope I can get this golden chance for a long time.
— Do you have any idea about your future photo projects? Share with us please if it is not a secret?
— Being a Conceptual photographer my photography speaks a universal language that does not need translation. I'll represent another story which belongs to grassroots of society, and will try to create an impact at the grassroots level.
About the project
Importance of educating a girl child in Indian Society Education is an essential part of a living being, whether it is a boy or a girl. Education helps an individual to be smarter, to learn new things and to know about the facts around the world. Especially women education in India is the need of the hour. In terms of inhabitants, India is the second largest nation in the world but the rate of girl education in India is extremely low. Educating the girl child must be a necessity for the overall development of the country as women play an essential part in the all around process of the country. Generally, in rural areas, where people rarely want to send their daughters to school, they think that education is not important for girls as they grow up and eventually get married and settle down. People think that girls should be stay at home mothers to help their family and nothing else. This mentality is completely wrong and since girl education can bring around a massive revolution in the society, as lack of women education weakens the potent part of the society.
I firmly believes that photographs provide an outlet for others to express their feelings, emotions, dreams and aspirations.The heart and mind are the true lens of her camera. Being an artist tried to makes a true connection with the soul of a moment by my photographic Book titled "The Daughter" where I tries to convey through my subtle images, how a girl child grows her wings and tries to soar high into the sky under the beneficent gaze of her loving mother, but the society of men try to restrain her, clip her young wings down and condemn her to a life of misery where danger lurks around every corner. At first, frightened, she scurries away to the protective hearth and her mother's bosom. There, under her mother's watchful gaze, she learns to overcome the fetters of society and rise much higher into the sky, STRONGER.
