Kill is rather a serious word, so the Englishmen came up with a better sounding term- abortion. However it is still a taboo, a big taboo. Anybody who says it in a crowd and they instantly gets a stare back and they will be shot(verbally) by so call “humanitarians” with their moral and ethical views on how you SHOULD NOT even think about it.
Only the laying hen knows its ass pain (direct translation from tamizh- “muttai vita kozhikkuthaan athan kundi vali teriyum”) . Only those who need to perform an abortion knows the pain of doing it, mentally and physically.
The common phrase that I get shot back when I say legalize abortion:
You have no fucking rights to kill a life even if it’s your own child. (f*ck panna naalathaane child eh vanthichi)
You have to go behind the bars for breaking the law! ( oh yea, its totally legal to have premarital sex, i know!)
Unborn is still a life too ( un mairekkum thaan uyiru irukku, appo eppadi valaruthu da m*iru!)
For you to support abortion, you should have been aborted by your parents! ( you might be right, Mr Suppose-To-Be-Flushed)
Protection, you never heard about it? !! ( That balloon rite? Yea yea, the ones you love to blow )
* This is like my first blog post after more than a year in hibernate mode *
yawnnzz….. Mum woke me up yesterday and passed me an A4 size envelope from the mail man. Half asleep, I manage to open the cover without damaging the content. To my surprise I got this !
Well it’s a certificate of participation for my debut short film- Enough ! [bass in hindi] from BMW shorty. Overjoyed and my beauty sleep went down the drain but who cares 😛 !! I was thinking : ” hmmm that’s nice way to start my day and the year as well..”
After long back packing trip from India, it’s my 1st day back to reality (WORK!) .
While my outlook mailbox was busy loading the past one month emails, I was just running through some inspirational websites to boost my work mood after a month long break (no,it was all safe for work place [NSFW] websites ok!).
And I recalled that actually the short film that I mentioned earlier was made for some other competition and I actually didn’t follow up with the results with the assumption that I did not receive any email from the organizing committee. Hence I decided to have a quick peek on the winner list and see how bad I sucked compared to the other finalists.
As I was scrolling down the page (click here) and I found this at the 7th thumbnail !
I couldn’t believe my eyes! The debut short film of mine – Enough ! [bass in hindi] made it to the finals!!! And dumb me just gotta know this after one and the half month!!!!
I was a lil upset earlier that my shorty didn’t even make it to our very own Malaysian BMW Shorty competition but managed to console myself that, that’s okay as it’s my first attempt so don’t be greedy son. But this is like….OMG!!!!!!
Oh ya by the way, it’s the 4th International Wordless Short Film Festival that selected my entry and made it as one of the finalist. To add the icing on the cake that I’m savoring in cloud nine, it’s the only entry from Malaysia and one of the 5 of Asian entries for the competition made it there. The movie was premiered at Armory Theater, Sydney Olympic park, Australia on the 25th of Nov 2012.
I wish I was there to witness our work on the screen with people all around the world who attended the “big” day!
Just in case you have not watched it before, Bass (Hindi for ‘Enough’) depicts an orphan character who struggles to survive in the concrete jungle where he resorts to his artistic talents as a means of escapism and livelihood. The film is about the exploitation of an artist in the art industry and how the character faces it.
Check out the list below under FICTION category :
Yes we didn’t win the best movie or any award from that but, hey we made it there! Its like a great boost for me and my team to make more attempts in near future. I have no words to express my gratitude to everyone who supported me throughout the whole process of making it and during the time when I was down thinking I made real crappy stuff and wasted viewers 9.42minutes of their life.
Thanks again to everyone especially the jury panel of 4th International Wordless Short Film Festival for selecting Enough! as one of the best 20 from the rest of the participants all over the world.
‘Vision of Forever’ is an Odissi production of the highest caliber exemplifying works of the late Odissi pioneer Guru-Deba Prasad Das. Artistic director Ramli Ibrahim is unapologetic in his forthcoming of the spiritual depth of the complex psyche of India.

Many said that 2010 has been a great year for me because it seems i was more lucky and had became more of a household name in indian wedding photography industry, both locally and international. But i would say its because of the seed that i planted 2 years ago and the nurture of it had brought the fruitful year of 2010. The seed, my passion for photography ; the nurture is the continuous effort on making myself a better photographer in this industry.
Of course my hard work alone doesn’t pay it off to be who am i today, there is an old saying says we need two hands to clap in order to hear noise. But in my case because of the thousands pairs of hands and the claps for my work, i am here today as who i am. Hence my biggest thanks would go to my valued client who eventually became good friends, fellow PoserGraphers who shoot along with me, dearest family and lovely friends (both real and virtual i.e. facebook, twitter and also other social network platform).
A quick recap of 2010:
– The year started pretty well as i got my 1st northern region wedding assignment and it was a blast and then upgraded the gears and some lighting systems followed by my website upgrade from pure blog to a more interactive photography website .
– Shot a Conceptual Trash the dress pre-wedding photograph with the 5 elements theme name Panchabootha. It was said that its the 1st Indian trash the dress conceptual photo shoot.
– Got hired to shoot my 1st International Conceptual Pre-wedding shoot in Singapore, l’amour la nuit and you may view the work here. This was the shoot where PicVid concept was introduced by V.I.P Studio.
– Things got even better when I was hired to have a full coverage of an Indian wedding back in Chennai, India!! I was accompanied by 2 fellow photographers, suren and magen to deliver the best to client.
– To wrap up the year with some glory, I was hired all the way to LONDON to have full coverage of the British Indian wedding ceremony including the R.O.M, the Mehndi Night and Ponnurukku (gold melting ceremony) and the Pre-Wedding with the PicVid concept with the London Love story theme and also the Grand Ceylonese Wedding.
I might have missed out some of the achievement / accreditation things that i’ve done for the past years, and to many who may think its not even a matter to be mention or nothing to be shout about, thanks for thinking such way, you know you’ve been in my place to be the prominent who you are today. Being a photographer, our main nature is to sell our self (literally our work) as I believe if I don’t make some noise then i’m afraid I wont be heard at all. So why bother being “proud”, when yes I do feel a lil proud from what I’ve got collected by looking back from the past 2 years of my photography career.
Last but not least, Happy new year to all and to wrap up this blog post, I would like to give in some promo for my loyal clients and friends. Please check below poster for further detail.

This is one of my recent wedding reception shoot at the palace of the golden horses featuring Mr Vijay and Ms Rashmi (Mrs Vijay now) 🙂 .
Rashmi and I were friends from flickr since some time back but we don’t really communicate much over there. One fine day, I logged into my flickr and saw her message saying that her fiance might contact me regarding her wedding dinner reception photo shoot. I was a bit over whelmed because I didn’t know that my work had been noticed by someone from overseas. Oh yea, by the way, Rashmi is from Singapore and bro vijay is from here (Malaysia).
I still remember she told me in the message that she is a person with few word and camera shy and least photogenic which i totally disagreed and i bet you guys will too now.
Congratulations to the beautiful couples Mr& Mrs Vijay, now who said we both country people cant get along, hehe. One singapore, Satu Malaysia.
You have seen me bragging about my gears, wedding photos, engagement moments being capture and even pet photography. For a change, I’m uploading one of the baby portrait shoot that I had in JB last year. I didn’t had the time to upload it and while doing spring cleaning on my 1TB hard drive which is reaching its quota, i stumbled upon of baby chandini’s photos.
She’s a very jovial baby who can pose for camera and mind you she was not even one year old.
Wondering what the heck new year gotta do with my gadget bragging huh? hehe, well new year is just another day to me but i use it as a dateline to meet certain personal and career target. Forget about the car accident that i met 2 days before the new year, forget about all the dispute that i had through out the year. praying to lord that my camera bag and my wallet should swell and god bless all you and thanks to all my wonderful client to made me better day by day, shoot by shoot.
