My two greatest passions - travel and photography, were both influenced by my father. His profession required him to move to a new town every couple of years. We'd send our luggage via a "packers and movers lorry" each time, all except one. My father would refuse to send the car as "cargo" and so we ended up travelling the length and breadth of India in our tiny car every time we had to move to a new town. I had the best time looking out of the window, soaking in the sights and dreaming of a life spent exploring the world. I've got his spirit of adventure and (unfortunately and much to mum's chagrin) his belief that you don't travel to a new place to "relax", you travel to explore. He is also a fantastic photographer and while I still struggle with the technical aspects of photography, I learnt through him that what really matters is the ability to identify and capture the right moment.
So this Father's Day and every other day, I'm grateful for having him in my life.
Seen in the picture - Papa, me and my brother, doing the most touristy thing you can possibly do in India - visiting the Taj Mahal.
