In the Digital age of photography where sentimental value associated with photographs are long lost in the gigabytes of your computer. Group like “Apalak” run by Himanshu Vyas and Suman Sarkar has not accepted the defeat yet. On the morning of World Photography Day “Apalak” had organised a group meet at Indian Coffee House, Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur. where everyone has to bring the prints of their recent clicks and then have a discussion on them (they randomly do these kind of meets and other activities also). No FB likes or Insta love was there; we really had to pick the prints in the hand, feel it and then had to communicate with the photographer. Touching a picture gives you a feeling like the picture had touched you back. We all had a wonderful time.
