Every father has a dream to fulfill through his son. My father had also same wish. He always wanted to see me as a cancer specialist especially a radiation oncologist. By the grace of almighty God, I made his dream successful.
I also became a photographer as because from the beginning of my life I was deeply involved in photographic environments. My father was a very passionate photographer. He started his photography by Kodak baby browny, Yashica twin lens reflex and then Nikon with Mamiya large format. He had his own darkroom. So in my subconscious mind I used to love photography from my childhood.
I was always my father’s model for photography. I had a doll. I always tried to enucleate the eye of that doll. One day he beautifully captured that moment that of me enucleating the eye of that doll. My loving wife still laughs after seeing that photo.
My father provided me with all photographic equipments like Yashica, Contax with Carl Zeiss and Tamron lenses. In 1985 it was always a dream to have these superb equipments. My standard was Kodak Ektachrome, Ilford HP5 and FP4 film also with Ilford Multigrade paper. Without his endless support I could not go through. He always appreciated my photography to others, even not in front of me. He was always concerned about my passion for photography and always thought that I can quit medical profession for photography. He died in 2004.
After that I always thought how I could prove my gratefulness to him for my medical profession and photographic career. Than this is idea came to my mind to memorize my father life time throughout the world by photography. This will be a challenge for me to fulfill my dream successfully. All my family members and friends are helping me to success of his memory. I always pray to God to give me courage and strength to make it a successful event. So, I request every photographer from every corner of the World to help me by sending their beautiful images to make my dream successful.
