Bye Bye 2012

Bye Bye 2012

This year was full of trips and EMI's ;P . We got our first HOME
I met Gulzar, My Idol, my Inspiration and got him to autograph his books in all three languages (Hindi, Urdu and English). I was also able to meet Indian Ocean - my favorite Rock Fusion band last 15 years.
We went to Dubai on our 1st Anniversary and enjoyed a lot with special people. London trip was excellent surprise and was ale to attend Hard Rock Calling 2012 in Hyde Park. This year I also covered few religious events like Muharram, Durga Puja, Chhath, Guru Nanak Jayanti and Christmas and was delighted to get some very nice as well as some good candid shots. My photographs got selected by Getty images for sale and many were sold giving me some good bucks. I wrote some good Hindi Poems , thanks to my house balcony which covers both sunrise and sunset. Most of the mornings I witness such a beautiful sunrise that I was forced to take my time to write some beautiful poem. Growth in professional career was also a big boost last year.
