UDAIPUR – ONCE UPON A TIME

 

In April 2013, I visited Udaipur, the city of lakes. I am very fond of this city for the historic vibes it gives. During the same time I was working on a project about my grandfather Pannalal Patel’s life. Pannalal Patel is a national award wining Gujarati Novelist.

When I was roaming in the city, these places took me to my grandfathers  era during which he had written  his autobiography, ” Jeevan Sanjeevni.”

I started imagining his stories through my lens, maybe the times he grew up in looked like these black and white images….

i wish he was here with me to answer my questions about his life but since he is not there I can only imagine …

This is my tribute to the era between 1930’s to 1960’s when his stories were based on…
