M Alphabet is important to every human , may be Money , Moments , Mementos , Manners but for me it is My Friend Mahesh Swami who is my Mentor for Photography also.
He has done 15 solo exhibitions upto now and after his last exhibition starting on World’s Photography day till 31 August 2019 in JKK , Jaipur India .invited few of the known personalities from fields of Art , Culture , Literature , Art Critic and Spirituality for a quality conversations on ” Being with Inward Stream ” at his home amidst Nature . .
Conversations and particularly from the assembly of wisdom thinkers from different fields was a treat almost for 2 valuable hours , off course with Coffee , Cookies and apple custard and later on visit to his Back yard Garden
When in year 2017 I requested to utilize some of his Photographs for my Wisdom Book ” Own Zero ” he refused with the smile for his works but instantly gave a offer of Mentorship to harness my talent of Photography. Great gesture , lots of time and Guidance, for my book ” Own Zero ” in 2017 and 2018 and he has been Mentor to many many and Photographs in this post are by two of his students only .
To be with nature is to be with your self,
To be with yourself is to be with one self ,
To be with oneself is to be with divine self.
A Quote from my book ” OWN ZERO ”
Mahesh Swami has conversation with his garden in such totality that his last 3 Exhibitions are conversations with his Own Garden. His work admires are all around the world .
I feel honoured to know him firstly as my friend and also as my Photography Mentor.
