Favourable Bags Tailor
On a Ramadan evening on the streets of the old city Hyderabad. I'm on a mission to grab some footage for a video documentary of Ramadan nights. While I was capturing this exact same picture without a tailor in the shop as I see him no where around, after few seconds he rushed into the shop and took his seat and resumed his work. He did this to make sure I get a good picture along with him in the whole scene. And then with his support I took some more good pictures video bites of him that evening.

She is not Nervous
The BHARATH CULTURAL ACADEMY 20th Annual Day Celebrations held in Ravindra Bharathi Auditorium and the crowd was thin. They are all female classical dancers of all age groups performing on the stage, While everyone is waiting for their turn and busy with their backstage rehearsals this young lady is watching the show and waiting for her turn to go on stage. I asked if she is nervous and she said no, which is of no surprise. She has let me take this beautiful picture and she left the place in hurry as she was called by someone. Unfortunately I couldn't share this picture with her.
