Love for the Mountains


ALovefor1Bivash Das is an Assam based Mechanical Engineer. He fell in love with the mountains when he visited a friend in 2007, who was posted in Munshiyari, Uttarakhand. The sight of Panchuli peaks basking in the sun was etched in his memory for a long time. His numerous trips to the Himalayas have left him wanting for more. This includes the Hemkund Sahib in Uttarakhand, Kinnaur-Spiti valleys in Himachal, Bhutan, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Ladakh and Zanskar. Ladakh occupies a special corner in his heart and he has made five trips to this beautiful land. His interaction with one of his colleagues, Udayan Das (a macro photographer), inspired him to pursue photography. He is also inspired by the works of Debraj Chakraborty, Arif Siddiqui and Rajiv Kumar. You can check out his work on www.500px.com/bivashdas |SP
