Workshop

The architect made houses.
The filmmakers made films.
The scientist made discoveries. 
The teacher made them all.
 
I read this somewhere and found this so true. Teachers lay the foundations of a great society, and we are forever indebted to them. When I was in school, I got my self enrolled in a one-year photography course in Howrah, West Bengal. It was a free course conducted once a week in a government primary school on weekends by “Society of Photographers.” The age group of students was from 16 to 70. A group of eminent photographers have come together to empower people to follow their dreams, find an alternative profession, discover a new hobby and more importantly to teach a new way of seeing life. This course has changed the course of my life for good.
 
I try to find time in between my professional shooting assignments to teach. I have taught a number of students of different age groups from different parts of India and abroad. I take workshops and lectures in various film schools like Xavier’s Institute of communication, Digital Academy, State Film and television institute, Rohtak to name a few. It gives me immense joy to interact with students from different walks of life coming together to learn the language of Cinema.
