Gandhi by Dhakshana Vel

Dhakshana Vel P, studying in 7th grade in Sharanalaya Montessori, Akkarai, Chennai remembered a photograph he shot a year ago to pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on this year’s Independence Day.

During the Photowalk held on the occasion of Madras Week last year (2019), a group of children was taken along the Beach Road starting from Dare House in Parrys. In a building, tucked away inside the General Post Office, Dhakshana Vel found a statue of Gandhiji. He clicked a picture and promptly made a digital poster for Independence Day this year.

Dhakshana Vel is a photography enthusiast and loves his camera.
