Showcasing photography talents

These young talents have delivered appealing photographs that belie their age. Looking at these pictures one may wonder if it’s the work of a professional. Young children from six to 11 year olds participated in a three-month long training and travel organised by Spiny Babbler. The children sure have learnt a lot and this is evident in the photos that are on display at the Spiny Babbler Art Gallery. The beauty of flowers, daily events in the life of city dwellers or a kid enjoying himself amidst nature all have been captured beautifully.

The photography sessions conducted by professionals helped children know various aspects of photography, from composition, colour coordination to the technical sides of using a camera. Besides the theoretical knowledge children were also taken to various places like Godavari, Bhaktapur, Shesh Narayan temple, Ason, Teku ghat and other places as well. According to Param Meyangbo, programs director, this is being undertaken by their Education Focus Programs for weekends. The exhibition continues till September 14.

Gai Jatra

Gai Jatra at Kathmandu by Ira Cohen
Gai Jatra at Kathmandu by Ira Cohen

The gai or cow is holy to Hindus . She represents Laxmi, the goddess of wealth, and guides the souls of the departed to the gates of the Netherworld. But Gai Jatra is not a somber occasion. Satire, jokes, fancy costumes, and colorful processions are the order of the day as people recall how an eighteenth century king rallied his people to cheer his queen upon the death of their son. Those who have experienced the death of close ones during the past year share their sorrow and fake comfort in the fact that the gai has safely transported the departed souls on their afterlife journey.
Young men wearing women's saris, children dressed up as cows, and whimsical characters of all sorts fill the streets. Special issues of local magazines poke fun at everyone and everything - even the most important people aren't spared.

Janai Purnima and Rakshya Bandhan

Janai Purnima and Rakshya BandhanJanai Purnima and Rakshya Bandhan
Throughout the Kingdom today, the "Tagadhari" (or those who wear the "Janai" or sacred thread on their bodies) change the "Janai" after having a haircut and a ritual bath on the occasion of Janai Purnima, also known as "Rishi Tarpani".

This festival observed by the Hindus, especially of the Shaiva sect, on the full moon of August is also popularly known as "Gunhu Punhi" in the Newar community.

According to time honoured tradition, people receive the "Rakshya Bandhan" thread tied around the wrist. The yellow thread is purified by the chanting of Mantras by Brahmins as a symbol of protection from fear and disease. They also observe the occasion as "Kwati Purnima".

Kwati, a soup prepared from nine different beans is a special addition to the Nepalese menu today.

The "Kulabarna Tantra" Tantrik test says that the soup is highly nutritious and keeps diseases at bay.

In the Terai region, sisters tie an attractive "Rakhi" around the wrists of their brothers wishing them long life and success.

Today, thousands of devotees worship Lord Shiva at Pashupatinath in Kathmandu and at Kumbheswor in Lalitpur and take holy dips in ponds and lakes.

Religious fairs are held at Gosaikunda, an Alpine area in Rasuwa district, and at Dansangu Triveni in Jumla district to observe the festival with offerings of worship to Lord Shiva.

A big religious fair takes place at Gosaikund Lake.

On the occasion, worshippers come from far places to take a ritual holy dip in the Gosaikund Lake and other nearby lakes.

On Janai Purnima, a full moon day, high-caste Hindus chant the powerful Gayatri Mantra and change their Sacred thread (janai), while a rakshya bandhan, a red or yellow protection cord, is tied around the wrists of other Hindus and Buddhists. Pilgrims journey to the mountains north of Kathmandu. Here they emulate Lord Shiva by bathing in the sacred lake of Gosainkunda. Those unable to make the trek celebrate at Shiva's Kumbheswor Mahadev temple. Here, a pool with an image of Shiva at its center is filled with water believed to have come from Gosainkunda.

A moment in time: 1954-2007 by Dwarika Das Shrestha,

A moment in time 1954-2007, Dharahara, 1959 by Dwarika Das Shrestha
Originally uploaded by

Dwarika Das Shrestha

Sometimes a talent is so special and strongly established in a family that its lineage continues for generations. Perhaps renowned photographer late Dwarika Das Shrestha, who set up the well-known Das Photo Store (till 2004) in Kathmandu, would be happy that the passion which ran in his blood equally infects his son and grandson, and perhaps others yet to come.

Photography as a profession in the ‘Das’ family dates back to four generations, with the foundation of Das Studio in Darjeeling by Dwarika’s father Thakur Das Shrestha/Pradhan in 1927, who migrated there from Kathmandu. Dwarika returned to Kathmandu strongly inspired in photography by his father. And the legacy of this master photographer survives in his son, Gyanendra Das Shrestha and grandson, Kashish Das Shrestha.

Gyanendra attributes his interest in photography to the environment he blossomed in. “My father always took me along when he travelled to take photos. He also gifted me my first camera,” he shares. “During a picnic in school, I clicked photos and my friends unexpectedly paid me for the photos. This was when I saw the commercial side of photography,” explains Gyanendra. He has since maintained a more commercial side to photography than his father, who preferred the documentary style.

“In this sense, I am closer to my grandfather as my photos are more journalistic,” says 25-year-old Kashish whose romance with photography began after he took up journalism in 1999. He has been a successful RJ, journalist, photographer and events manager. Two of Kashish’s photos were also selected for the recently released photo-book A People War: Images of Nepal in Conflict 1996-2006.

Dwarika captured images of people, landscapes and culture mostly in black-and-white using his favourite cameras Hasselblad, Linhof, Leica and Nikon. However, he also experimented with slides and colour photos. While he gained a good reputation for his highly circulated photos of the royal family, he had also photographed BP Koirala when he came to Chabahil, Kathmandu and distributed it among the democratic forces, which was considered illegal at that time. “This reveals he was a democrat at heart,” Gyanendra says with a proud smile. “He has left behind a rich legacy of photos,” he adds.

At the young age of 18, Gyanendra won The Koishikawa Rotary Prize at the annual international photo contest organised in 1976 in Japan by the Asia/Pacific Culture Centre for UNESCO (ACCU), and he won a prize again from ACCU in another category in 1978. Gyanendra’s photos have also been widely used, by the Nepal Tour-ism Board and various travel trade magazines.

For Dwarika and his near and dear ones, this August 18 will be a special day, as it will see the late master’s first photo exhibition, along with the photos taken by his son Gyanendra and grandson Kashish. Entitled ‘a moment in time: 1954-2007,’ the exhibition will be held at the Nepal Art Council, Babermahal from August 18-23 on the occasion of late Dwarika’s 75th birth anniversary.
“I’m excited as my grandfather and I had planned an exhibition just days before he passed away in April 2004,” shares Kashish.

The event, to be inaugurated by British Ambassador Andrew Hall, is being organised by the Association of Saint Mary’s Alumnae Nepal (ASMAN), and comprises photos of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan, Darjeeling and Ladakh from the 1950s to the present day. The photos will be auctioned and 25 per cent of the proceeds will go to ASMAN Art Fund for various art-related charity activities.

A Moment in Time: 1954-2007 is an exhibition of selected images taken by one of Nepal's pioneering photographers, Late Dwarika Das Shreshta, who established the Das Photo Store in Kathmandu in the 1960s. The images will span five decades in time and take you from Kathmandu to Ladak. His son, Gyanendra, and grandson, Kashish, too will exhibit some of their works at the event.

A Moment in Time:1954-2007 is organized by Asman and supported by Photo Concert, B&N and Nepali Times. The exhibition will be held at the Nepal Art Council gallery in Baber Mahal, Kathmandu from 18-22 August, 11AM to 5PM. For deatils: Kashish # 2324495
