I did not have to climb bus stops , I did not have to monkey around with gravity climb electric poles or lamp posts and I wondered would that have really got me better pictures.
I had nothing on my person just Rs 150 ..An ordinary 4 year old mobile phone a single camera a single lens I was barefeet no water bottle no snack box I drank my first cup of tea at Byculla.
I was caught at several places in a stampede people walked over me but spared my camera and I shot mostly from ground level..I could not be as acrobatic as Girish Mistrys students I thought living was more important than dying for a picture.
Before you shoot an event of this enormity you should know the ground rules bravado or trying to be one up does not help, as a student its better to have another student covering you ass shooting alone is not the temperament for this kind of shoot.
