Ground Control to Major Tom

This picture was taken during our short visit to Nepal Television during MSNG Kathmandu. The visit to the state owned television station was quite insightful as we got to know that the TV station still used VHS tapes and technologies from late 90s and early 2000s to operate. Though there have been plans on upgrading the equipments as Nepal Television plans to operate full HD by the end of 2018, it still looks a far fetched dream to me.

The first Television station in Nepal, Nepal Television serves as a pioneer in Television and News broadcaster in the country. I would certainly be glad if they improved upon their services and have their equipments upgraded as soon as possible.

Brilliant Bremen

Bremen, a small and beautiful city in the Northern Germany. Taken during our trip to Bremen last year, we got to visit few of Bremen’s landmark. Our visit to Radio Bremen was quite productive as we got to get hands on experience on how a major media house works in Germany. I’d definitely want to visit the city sometime later in my life.

Illusive Ilam

Took this photo while walking towards the Ilam view tower on the top of the hill. I was waiting for the fog to cover the whole hill while it just blew over the top. To be inside the chilly fog while exploring Ilam was one of the best feelings of the school trip. The staircase to the top seems to make the landscape even more appealing with the yellow paint over its railings.

Though the fog didn’t let us get the proper view of Ilam bazar, the very same fog did create a breathtaking feeling for us to get lost into. East never ceases to amaze me!

Ilam – Where the Tea Comes from

Goodmorning folks, here’s a pic from Ilam, the tea capital of our small himalayan country. Known for its exquisite tea gardens, this eastern town didn’t fail to mesmerise me with its constant foggy weather and delicious tea.

I would definitely recommend a visit to Ilam for its serene landscapes as it would surely serve as a perfect getaway for a day or two.

Purweli Portraits

I had never been to the Eastern Part of Nepal ever in my life. Having been there for the first time, that too with a bunch of misfits of a friends from school was one heck of an experience. From the foggy Ilam to Muddy Hiley, Taplejung and the hot Itahari, the trip did help all the students from the Media Studies Department (Kathmandu University) to socialise and get to know each other.

The annual school trip has always been the event where everyone gets to know one other and this year was not different from the past. From the enthusiastic first years, barely present second years, reckless third years and lastly the relaxing fourth years, all the groups of students seemed to have enjoyed the trip to the fullest while also learning about the local elections which was about to be held in few weeks.

Terrific Taplejung

Terrific Taplejung

A gem in the eastern part of Nepal, Taplejung district is famous for it’s proximity around Mount Kanchanjanga, the third tallest peak in the world and other terrific spots like Pathibhara and the elongated stretch of Phungling bazar.

Also known for the cash crop of Aiselu ( I have know idea what it is called in English). the district produces over 4 tonnes of the herb in a year. One shouldn’t miss out on the local Mustange alcohol (trust me it is goood) when visiting Phungling bazar.

This image was taken for a profile shoot for MSNG (Media School Nepal Germany) in Kathmandu University School of Arts. Lena, who has been a very close and wonderful friend ever since we met in Wilhelmshaven last summer, wanted to do something new with the murals in my school. Surprisingly, it was the shortest of all the profile shoots, which only took about 10-15 seconds. Perfectly aligned and positioned with the mural, this particular image surprised us big time!

It has been a while since I have updated my blog. Have been quite occupied with loads of personal as well as academic matters for the past few months. It has certainly not been very easy for me to overcome all the tragedies and losses this year but at the same time, this year made me believe in my dreams as I got to experience a lot of things and meet a lot of new friends so far.

I will be posting at least three or four posts per week in the upcoming weeks to keep you updated as well as to share the things I learnt in the past few months.

Thus, Live Your Dreams, for it will come true if you do not stop working on it!

From the light towards the shadows, the journey seems to be frightening to the others but this isn’t a new thing for me.

Location: Nagbahal, Patan, Nepal.

This photo was taken during Photo Kathmandu 2015, a photography exhibition organized by Photo Circle. The week-long exhibition was held at various venues across the medieval city of Patan showcasing the history and phases of Photography in Nepal.Photo Kathmandu, the newest addition to the international photography festival circuit, is also stated have its second edition in October/November 2016.

I will be posting some few selected clicks during the exhibition in coming days as I have not posted any photographs for the past couple of months. Hopefully I will be updating the blog regularly again! Till next time photomongers!
