  2. Kumar, I came across this picture on a book about India therefore I do not have a url link. HCB is one of my favourite photographers.

  3. Great picture! Though not through an HCB lens, I have been lucky enough to see many similar, amateur pictures from the scientists’ personal albums.
    (fringe benefits of having my Dad work at Thumba!) To see their proud, nostalgic faces when they show you these pictures – man, that is somwthing else!

  4. All beginnings start humble, rivetting viewers with the simplicity of it all.
