Street Stories

YPS Meet Live | July 12, Sun | 5:30 PM | YPS Facebook page

Our next YPS meet is by Mr Thejas K Rajaram who will turn ‘Story-teller’ for us to ‘see’ street stories unfold from USA.

Thejas loves life on the street. He is often found wandering in unknown streets, talking to strangers and taking street photographs.

Good street photographs fill us with emotions or give us insight.  Good street photographs go beyond light, shapes, and faces.  They use these tools to tell great stories of life.  Sometimes, they ask questions.  Questions that may not have answers.  But questions that open up your perspectives, making the need for an answer moot.  Street photographs are magical mirrors of life.

As humans, when we were little, we were entranced by mythological stories by grandmothers with white hair, slightly drooping chin with a kind face, a worn out saree patting us lovingly with their weathered palms.  The story seeking heart still remains with us when we are adults.  We seek to understand the world around us using patterns and stories.

Dṛṣṭi Revived

YPS Event Live | July 12, Sun | 4:00 PM | YPS Facebook page

One of the exciting experiences of being a YPS member was that of reading the newsletter ‘ದೃಷ್ಟಿ The Vision’, which used to be a monthly publication and carried the information on happenings of the Society and achievements of members. The newsletter serves as a means of connecting  members of the Society, irrespective of whether one could attend the regular programmes held.

The four-page newsletter printed in single colour, was transformed to an e-version and then to a collection of event updates on the YPS website.

A team of enthusiastic members have put together Dṛṣṭi in the form of a journal with interesting content and all pages in colour.  The YPS journal Dṛṣṭi will be relaunched on Sunday, 12th July 2020.
