One Loyal Friend

“One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.”
(Euripides, Greek playwriter)

This is a portrait of my friend Anil shot in Paris a few weeks ago.
Anil is a true friend and a man of virtue.
We share the same passion for Punjabi music and singers, like Jagjit Singh or Shujaat Husain Khan among many.
When we meet in Paris everything vanishes and we spend endless Indian hours which have a touch of his homeland, Amritsar.

As Handsome Does

“Handsome is as handsome does.”
J.R.R. Tolkien (English Writer and Author of richly inventive epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings, 1892-1973)

This is my friend Anand who became our favourite model since a few season for our collection catalogues.
I took this picture on his motorboat last morning, while he was driving me from the palace of the Maharaja of Benares which is Ramnagar back to Varanasi (Benaras).
He opened this big umbrella in order to avoid the heat of the sun which was reflecting on the Ganges, temperature was then around 47°.
