Anik-Wadala Link Road

Ek duje ke liye pose

This picture I clicked is in Tehelka's Independence Special cover story called Love Across The Lines.

It's for a story about a couple, Murtaza and Shylaja who are originally from Bangalore and live in Mumbai with their infant son, Rehan. It's a love story that began high up in the sky where they met each other on a flight. No wonder they threw the rules up in the sky and got married across the lines. Read their wonderful love story and several others, here.

I also got to spend a wonderful, nostalgia filled, rainy afternoon with the couple and their son in their apartment. It's not everyday that I meet people from my home town, especially those who shared the same growing up experience as me. Thank you Murtaza and Shylaja for the wonderful chai-a and photographs.

Other photographs clicked on assignment, here.

Beautiful picture. You've managed to make it seem that you weren't around with a camera when this moment happened.

Thanks. It's very useful when people can forget that there's an idiot with a camera poking his nose in their business!

, “She refers to it all the time. Right now with my French beard, I am called a terrorist. Damn that Bin Laden!”

Loved this line... Wish more people had Murtuza's sense of humour; poor Dean Jones may not have lost his job.

Nice photo man! Now who knew that an elevator could provide the perfect setting.

The song from Ek Duje Ke Liye was what gave me the idea :) Thanks.
