The photograph is taken amid the lights of Diwali, the festival of lights. It is one of the greatest festivals of India. He is my nephew and just 3 years old, but he is so daring that we have to keep ourselves always busy to take a look of him. On that day he was very eager to play with firecrackers. We were very anxious and always keep ourselves behind him. The idea of taking photos on him comes to my mind. After shots from different angles this one comes. After all it is very difficult to take photos of a child like my nephew who is always busy in his activities and if he sees that the camera is on him, he will never give the shot. So the photo is taken from his behind.

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.
