The photograph was taken in my family trip to Puri, Orissa from where my keen interest in photography has started. I was there deserted by my wife and son because I was blamed for not giving enough time to them due to photography. They were even not willing to talk with me. Then suddenly the unnatural and unusual activities of these monkeys made their glum faces smiling, and ease up the situation. I took this shot among too many activities of those huge numbers of monkeys.

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.
