YPS Newsletter March 2017

From Editor’s Desk

February was a hectic month with lots of activities. But it was a month that will refuse to go away from our memory for a long time. Sri. TNA Perumal, mentor for many and a living legend passed away on February 8th. Many of the YPS Members and senior photographers visited his home to pay homage to Shri. Perumal. YPS also held a meeting on February 18th to pay tributes to this great master. Many senior professionals participated in the program and shared their experiences. Shri. Perumal’s son Shri. Jayakumar and Shri. Perumal’s close associate, Shri. Nicky Cruze also joined us during the session. We all paid homage to Shri. Perumal with flowers. This is one loss, which the photographic fraternity cannot bear. We at YPS pray to God to rest him in peace.

YPS has also announced a Photo Contest and exhibition in memory of Shri. TNA Perumal. The Contest will have four sections, viz., Birds, Butterflies, Wildlife and Monochrome all of which are close to the heart of Shri. Perumal. Check perumal.ypsbengaluru.com for participation. Last date for participation is April 15th.

The women power continued and we had excellent presentations by Smt. Prema Kakade and Ms. Hema Narayan. And this continues into March.
