The photographer Rubul Deka on his love for photography-
Discovering this euphoric part of life!
A very close friend of mine said that donkeys only work, but human works, as well as plays. Finding a decent job with a University degree is easy. I do have that one which earns me my bread.
Unfortunately, we have a mind that can’t be kept empty; like that of the stomach. And this is what led me to strive for something that would help me inculcate a healthy mind. Honestly speaking, I was in need of a hobby that fitted me.
This is a story from years ago. Coming to Dibrugarh University for my PG degree, I read a novel in which author Anuradha Sarmapujari talked about the mesmerizing beauty of the University campus. I too was awestruck by the splendid beauty of the flora and fauna around.
This time, I did have the pen, but lacked the art of playing with the words. I thought of capturing the moments with the camera which I did have back at home. Then, I realized that I got a hobby, a life with a purpose. And the little creative demon inside me found an outlet. This is how the journey started, the euphoric part of my life, this little part that I treasure till this date.
