Child Education, photo essay by Ranita Roy
Education plays a very important role in building a strong foundation of our society. India being first as under developed country and now as developing country, keep a strong focus on education system.
Apart from the general education system, Government put a special emphasis on adult and child education system. Still the entire system couldn’t achieve the desire result. The main threatening is the poverty.
The poverty line in India, is still around 22%, and this lead to the major issue like child labour. Hence, Government put a major focus on this issue and not only trying to build up schools in each and every block or village, also trying to generate interest on education through block development projects. Already mid-day meal has started by the government for students, especially in the villages and economically backward areas, free of cost, so the school going children can get their desire food, without affecting the cost of their family. Now people are sending their children to school for education. As a result, the countries social foundation is building up with knowledge and good values. (Ranita Roy)
Q&A with Ranita Roy
To me Photography is the best way to achieve the power of observation and express my inner feelings. My goal is to show the different moments and moods of life. I focus on place with regular people in exaggerated situations that highlight an aspect of who they are.
Photography and writing…
Generally the photos that I take describes about me and the subjects. I look for a sense of defiance and fortitude in my work. Picking up a camera gives me an opportunity to capture a specific vision to share with others. Ultimately, a well captured image represents a moment in time that is expressed infinitely, and that’s enough of a reason for me to hang a camera around my shoulders wherever I go. Many a times a photograph can have multiple meaning. But if I want to portray my point of view, then writing comes into play.
Who left the biggest impression on you?
First of all my family, they are the pioneer of my photography and then many legendary photographers I used to communicate frequently. Also I go through many stunning photographs in net, which inspire me a lot to do it perfectly with a meaning.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with the readers?
The world is an art, we need to know how to capture the art. For this you need to connect your soul with each and every art form to realise the essense of art and then act as an artist. We, photographers, generally paint with the light through camera, thus a sense of art is very essential. Along with the art, you need to have enough knowledge on the subject what you are capturing, it will give you the enough understanding of the subject, situation and the reason of capture.
