The visuals of the ‘Jaane kya dhik jaaye’ campaign for Rajasthan Tourism are unforgettably gorgeous. Not just on video, but even in print. The lensman behind that campaign and about 700 more is no more, one learnt this week. He is being remembered not just for his talent, but also his modesty, kindness and helpful nature. He lives in the hearts of those he worked with. For those of us who did not have the pleasure of knowing the man, he lives on through his work.
In loving memory of fellow photographer and worthy colleague Ajay Salvi who was taken too soon yesterday following a heart issue
Ajay was one of my very first assistants in my professional career and worked his way thru sheer dint of hard work n passion for the craft.

You can’t keep Elon Musk out of the news and out of X. If it’s not for X, it’s for Tesla, which makes news all the time. Sometimes, the news isn’t so good. One hopes Tesla succeeds globally and brings business and jobs to more markets including India. And one hopes that it’s all done fair and square.

The Rajinikant mania is back with bookings for Jailer about to open. We don’t know if the movie will live up to the hype but for his fans, the promos are as much part of the package as the main event.

Delhi Metro seems to be trending for myriad reasons. Not the least among them is content from within the coaches, patforms and secluded stairways. I am not sure this is entirely a good thing. Dancing to create viral content in a public place and road rage moving into train coaches certainly don’t bode well.
Voices from across the world and protestors on the ground don’t seem to be having any effect on the regime and its handling of protestors. Ahead of the first anniversary of the death of Mahsa Amini, the regime is mulling a more stringent hijab law, say news reports. The protestors aren’t backing off either.
Something seriously wrong with people defacing a young girl’s gravestone. But is there more to this?
Yalda Aghafazli was a 19 year old protester who died mysteriously a day after being released from prison last November.
