A perennial lover of Cinema and student of Cinematography, I believe the distinction between reality and dreams is bridged most accurately as possible with Cinema. With a Graduate Degree in English Literature from Delhi University, and Post-Graduate with Mass Communication from Jamia, and a second post grad in Cinematography/Motion Pictures from SRFTI, one of the most reputed film school of the country. It has finally dawned on me that I can never complete my journey for learning of Arts and Cinema in this lifetime, but walking the path is where lies the pleasure. With History of roving almost all around the country in my youth, to like and blend in to multiple cultures and Languages is a truly a gift.
