YPS Meet | Sat, June 9 | State Youth Centre
It is time to get started after the Annual General Meeting and here is the first program, a slideshow of wildlife photographs by Dr. Ajit Huilgol, a leading Kidney Transplant Specialist at Columbia Asia Hospital and an equally accomplished Wildlife Photographer. He was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Federation of the Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry in 2006 in the medical field.
Dr. Ajit Huilgol, ARPS was drawn to the wild by the tales of Jim Corbett. At very young age he was longing to go to the forests and witness the life described by Jim Corbett. A college trip to Bandipur finally firmed up the dream and made Dr. Ajit commit himself to understanding and photographing of Wildlife. With support and encouragement from his wife, he managed to steal time from his busy work schedules to visit most of the National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries in India and a few abroad. He received the Runner Up Award in the 2009 BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition under the “Behaviour of Mammals” Category. His two sons are equally mad about wildlife and are photographers of their own standing.
He is a person of multiple talents. He was a Cricket Commentator for All India Radio since 1972. He had also tried his hand in movies through the film “Freaky Chakra”.
A less known fact is that he is an amateur hypnotist and the persons attending this session are sure to be hypnotized by his amazing pictures.
You can see more of his pictures on his website www.wildandsavage.com .
