Once we went on a trip to the forest of Dooars, in North Bengal, India with the hope to find wild animals; instead amid the forest we found these two, workers of the forest. Asking them we came to know that they are called ‘Kunki’ in local language. But why are they used in this way? Once our famous poetess Lila Majumdar wrote that wild is beautiful at the wilderness as children at their mother’s lap. Yet we are unjustifiably destroying the beauty of nature and its elements. According to the advocacy of Wordsworth that time is not far away when the revengeful shock will come from their part if we continue the process of domination.

Nirupam Roy is from a small town Tufanganj, located in CoochBehar District in WestBengal, India. Being a school teacher, entering into this unique arena is really dramatic for him. Going to school he always thinks about the phenomena of the society, but could not understand how the common yet beautiful aspects can be modified represented. Though he has done some documentary video works in YouTube, but it did not satisfy him. Then 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, and bought the DSLR, NikonD5000. Now-a-days friends rebuked him by telling that camera becomes his only obsession. But Nirupam believes it becomes his passion because he always thinks how the new concept of photography can be produced. 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.
