My Tryst with the Lens


A journalist in Bahrain, I started my career at one of India’s leading newspapers, The Hindustan Times, in 1983. Later, I joined the Indian Express prior to a foray into the Gulf, in 1996. In Bahrain, I have worked at the now defunct Bahrain Tribune and at the Gulf Daily News.
Having developed an interest in photography at a very early age, in the days of the ‘box’ camera and 120 mm films, over a period of time this has developed into a hobby and a passion.
I am now working on a book of pictures, where I intend to showcase my perspective of Bahrain, for which I go around in my free time capturing interesting images and unique frames.

A selection of some of those images, as well as some thoughts and snippets on life as it moves along, are presented on these pages.
