Raghu Rai

Where the mind, spirit and body merge with the world around and the intuitive truth becomes manifest. The secret to capture the amalgam of so many lives lived in different times. And in those moments of meditation one becomes the perfect screen—a mirror; non-judgmental, a pure reflection with one’s experience of years of knowledge and vision. The relevant and irrelevant separate to merge again. The feelings get expressed through physical reality, and intuitive energy comes to play through the image. But these whispers of Nature are not for all, only for those who make themselves available, mentally, physically and spiritually; expression takes a physical form and one can see the whispers translated into images. 
One cannot separate the form from the sensuous. Apart from its physical and emotional aspects, even the birth of a child is sensuous act. Different elements of life and Nature can begin to tickle or touch one. It’s the effect of much contemplation. At times, different meditations merge into one and, at times, they gather in a single space as, simply, a spontaneous collation of circumstances. It is the unconscious past melted with the present which reflects the future. The unknown and the unseen get revealed. 
Ansel Adam spent a lifetime photographing rocks and landscapes. Rocks formed by the earth, carved by the winds, begin to look like ancient people. A mountaineer climbs Everest, returns and looks up again. Everest remains untouched and ever-challenging like a beautiful woman. Years of togetherness, and as one moves around the curves, the passionate and the tender are evoked and yet the female form holds the mystery. Like the clouds—ethereal and endless forms ever merging and disappearing as if they never were. The tangible becomes intangible; the mysteries of life and Nature never cease to amaze. 
An experience becomes a DARSHAN . . .
