While I was in Bombay my friend Robert and I trekked over to Kandivali and had the wonderful privilege of photographing and interviewing Moksh, the apple of his parents’ eyes and the cutest 11-month old little boy I have probably ever met. Today Moksh will have completed a whole YEAR in the world and so in honour of Mr. Moksh’s birthday, here are some of my favourite shots from our shoot and a write-up from Robert. Mr. Moksh, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph you. I was blessed by your parents’ hospitality and your amazing zest for life!
Before you were in our lives, we often thought of Moksh as a
deliverance away from and out of the travails of this world. But we
are grateful, for your arrival and the metaphor of your life has
brought about a paradigm shift in the way we think. A change in how
we perceive various facets of the world around us. We are now on the
path of true understanding. Rather than striving to attain another
worldliness through our own meticulous merit, we discover that Moksh,
although pursued with passion, is intended to be received and
experienced with hearts of overflowing gratitude in the here and now.
Deliverance into the world of joyful living, that is the gift that you
are in our lives. Happy Birthday Moksh.
Mr. Moksh is a Surat born Mumbai resident, who celebrates his first
birthday today, 8 June 2012. His primary interests and fields of
expertise lie in naps, eating the Mumbai Mirror, communicating with
good pigeons, and most importantly, hanging out with his awesome
parents. He cannot be contacted for further information (sorry) as he
has no mobile phone, email address, or facebook page.
Happy Birthday once again sir. We all love and welcome you to the
extended family of humanity.
