We held a contest for Four Season Wine in collaboration with Kalapalette on occasion of Valentine's Day for couples where they could win a photoshoot plus a bottle of wine. I know its March and editing/uploading of the pics got delayed and its been more than a month but better late than never... We did the photoshoot of this cute couple (Vidhi & Gaurav) in February and it was fabulous. One of the cutest couples ever.
Vidhi was bubbly and smiling away, whereas Gaurav was giving very serious expressions. Its usually awkward for guys initially but the couple gradually opened up and we had super fun! I still remember Vidhi's classic dialogue ' Dhar Jao '... means 'sit down or put the stuff down' before every shot in which they were required to sit. Lodhi garden felt majestic with bright sunlight and beautiful flowers.
Though the guards in the lodhi garden were not at all friendly! They were constantly bickering and were after our lives for the first hour - reason being.. we did little styling/make-up of Vidhi before the shoot and they were like - 'do you have permission for making this film...?' Whereas, the garden had so many photographers with big bad lenses, it was like a market of photographers instead of garden then also the guards were creating trouble for us only.
Anyways, back to the topic - I am sharing few shots of the shoot. Cheers to Vidhi and Gaurav!
And thanks to Four Seasons Wine for their delightful wines! :)

A child growing up in Paushi, a remote village in India studies under kerosene lamps and drinks dirty pond water every day. This not only retards his productivity but also makes him vulnerable to life threatening diseases. This is not an isolated example but the condition in nearly 25% of India (or of nearly 300 million people).

The format for UnBox 2013 departs from the previous two years, making it more open, vibrant and experiential. The ample, unique & green spaces at this year’s venue - ZORBA, allowed us to program multiple elements simultaneously, creating more of a festival and less of a conference.
Indian Artisans collaborated with artists and designers at UnBox to take craft-design intervention in new directions, UnBox collaborated with the pioneering crafts and heritage organizations - The Sanskriti Foundation and Dastakar to share the work processes and innovation challenges of master artisans with participants.
The Artisan Node at UnBox provided the following experiences:
‣a hands-on experience with the chance to observe master artisans and their approaches
‣debate and conversation with the people behind these seminal organizations
‣ creative workshops that propose imaginative ideas for challenges in the crafts
‣ resources for creating spatial and artistic experiments at UnBox
‣ create merchandise for UnBox participants
The challenge of creating meaningful craft-based interactions at a festival like UnBox is a critical conﬂict to consider. Artisan Node examined not just the expansion of the possibilities of craft, but also critiques typical conceptual and creative dynamics between design interventions and craft knowledge.
