This photograph was taken in my school. It was the time of having mid-day meal, and the students were very eager to have their lunch. It was always in my mind to capture their jolly faces at that time, so on that day I brought my camera. Though it was not right to take camera in the school, but I took permission from the higher authority, and very cautiously took my desired shot from a distance.

Nirupam Roy is a school teacher by profession. His story of coming to the world of photography is quite fascinating. In one summer he planned a family trip to Orrisa, India. There he realized the necessity of a camera to capture the scenic beauty of the place surrounded by several sea-coasts. At the same time he wanted to photograph his family, especially his son Arkapravo, and bought his first camera Canon SX 40 HS. After returning home, he has fallen in love with photography passionately. Photography completely changes his whole attitude towards nature and human being. It gives him a sort of peace to his weary mind, as if a blessings from Almighty.
