  • I got the golden opportunity to review my ''Palkhi Festival'' photo series work with a National Geographic producer.
  • I was selected for this opportunity through Natgeoyourshot July 2019 monthly assignment. there were 8643 entries for this assignment. It was a dream come true to get feedback on my Palkhi Festival portfolio from Nat Geo Editor. I was extremely humbled by the written feedback which was 5 pages long which appreciated my current work and included suggestions, advice, examples and most importantly, an underlying motivation to keep going on.
