Welcome to the Show, Will take you to a picturesque ride – the MELA.
But what’s the MELA is all about ?
An effort by a 18 year old boy to understand the rural culture and how it connects to our urban world. Though the pictures are taken from a 2 Mega Pixel mobile phone camera But it’s not about the picture’s quality, It was and always will be – “THE FEELING”, which always makes us feel connected to our ancestors, our heritage and to oneself. They say na “I traveled length and breadth of the world, to the five oceans, to the seven continents, but my heart still lies in the sand of my mother, where I feel the eternal love and I was and I will (always) come back for you, My Motherland. To all my fellows with heart – “Maa tujhe Salaam” !
