Hello!

I am a physicist by education and photographer by passion.
While flickr is great for sharing amongst a huge number of people, I still prefer the clean look of www.gadha.org

Gadha Gadha means donkey in hindi and punjabi. Not only do I love the the word purely from a linguistic and aeshthetic point of view but I also see a photographer as a neutral, ideally invisible onlooker who can be present in a scene in the most non obstrusive way. Gadha fits the bill! I imagine myself as a gadha while photographing and documenting streets who can see everything but does not influense things to a degree to have an impact on them so as to change them. So when heard gadha think of it as a donkey with a camera!
