Camera has been instrumental to Surya Shankar Dash’s life. Only when he realised its true power, his life changed for good. Surya gave up his Levi’s jeans and Woodland shoes to follow a frugal life. Abandoning the material pleasures has not been painful for Surya for he was too happy to let go the comforts and jump into the process — a process that he names ‘propaganda for the people’.

The art of Controlling
Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems in almost every aspect of life and it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of just an unpredictable emotion. And when this happens, you are thought of as someone who is needlessly throwing a tantrum over the smallest problem. In the end, this type of unhealthy behaviour can take a toll on the body and spirit and leave you feeling depressed, unfocused and suffering from unexpected physical problems. There is no need to prolong your suffering and feel depressed. Practice of yoga and meditation helps you to calm down and control your anger. Yoga and meditation teaches us the art of controlling and the art of silence.
