Laxmi and I have been friends for over 30 years and and I became her disciple to shoot the most interesting documentary that I called Hijras of India .. but I found my pictures being stolen misused I surrendered my domain name Hijras Of India .
I also blocked this documentary of over 25000 images at Flickr from public view I just kept a few .
I am grateful to Laxmi for supporting me in this individual effort and we were meeting after a long gap...
Laxmi has visited my house met my wife daughter.. and is very fond of my wife ,,who holds Laxmi in high esteem.
I would have never gone to the Kinnar or Hijra Akhara at Ujjain Kumbh ,, I mostly shot close to where I stayed with my Naga Guru Shri Vijay Gir Maharaji Triveni ... this cosmic trip hapened thanks to my friend Francois Fo Paris who accompanied me to their Akhara ,,
He was meeting Laxmi for the first time ,, even the rest of the images that I shot at the Kinnar Akhara I have disabled from public view .

shoot what you
