Photographer's Note

Recently I visited Puri, a religious city of Orissa, India on the coast of the Bay of Bengal. Puri is famous for the temple of Lord Jagannath (a form of Lord Krishna according to Hindu Mythology) and the Bay of Bengal.

I visited puri this time to snap moments - touchy, involving or saturated by history. I put some conditions for the play - involvement (direct or indirect) of the sea is necessary, no typical tourist shots, no personal connection with the subjects etc.

I snapped load of shots - mornings at Puri, noons at Konark, evenings at Puri again. Only 10% of all these I found can be exposed to the world. Others were tourist's shots, not a hobbyist's one.

This I got on the second day of my visit. The subjects of the shot - these two are unknown to me. Even I had not had any interaction with them. But this girl came into my frame suddenly and I started following him and his friend (brother may be) holding my cam. They were running towards south (to the Bhargavi River). Came back again. Their parents asked them to get off the sea. The girl agreed but the boy knew that he can stay in the sear only if the elderly girl stays with him .. ....

Only a stronger will power can make you win this fight ;)

I found Apu and Durga of 'Pather Panchali' [The Song of the Road] by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay [Bengali movie on this novel was directed by famous director Satyajit Ray] in them.
