Vignettes: Entries from Photography Exhibition

Following are the displayed entries from Vignettes, an online photography competition and exhibition organised as part of Aletheia, the annual academic fest of the Department of Philosophy.

The Hand

The hand has a double connotation. For some it defines beliefs such as the deeply embedded lines on our hands. For the others, it defines the courage of raising our hands to question the beliefs made by others. It is time to stop. To stop and think about our beliefs.

Caged

Beliefs are equivalent to a cage. You can try to break them down but they only rattle. You can stick your fingers out, but not your hand. They enclose us in unbreakable bonds from all sides, left, right, below and above. How ever will we escape this cage?

But greater joy by far I know

When with sweet faith and eyes aglow

And faith and wisdom here below

Until one day by saving grace he’ll meet his saviour face to face.

Do our rivers that we consider Holy need to be sacrificed and left in a mess for purification of our souls?

I found this man cleaning the mess at the shores of river Yamuna before taking dip into the Holy river. The board right above his head reads a request and directs the pilgrims not to leave ‘Puja Samagri’ at the shores of the river & to use Dustbins. It’s not our sins that are washed away in the Holy river but the Puja Samagri which eventually dirties the Holy river.

Are the best plans for their child not the failed dreams of the parent himself/herself? 

Is what parents considered best for their child really the best or does it just ties the child to an invisible chain that leaves the child helpless and sometimes the chain eventually breaks shattering the hopes of the parents. What you considered best for yourself may not be the best for your child.
