Sriram from Chennai, India

Wish for yet another spotlight. The backlighting, the character and the contrasts... make it special. But my favourite aspect of the image is the eyes... simply 'the eyes of truth'. This is the mark of many special images to come!! Best wishes, Sathya.

Jason Kravitz from Brussels, Belgium

This is a great portrait Sathya - can you tell us more about the image - where it was taken, something about this charismatic person?

20 May 2014 5:13pm

@Jason Kravitz: Oh my... Didn't see this comment. You are one of my true sources of inspiration in photography.. how did I miss your comment!!! Coming to this picture....This image portrays his inner longing to experience the eternal truth, transcending through the levels of life in search of the divine. I came across this hardened, yet tender sage at a holy place called Thiruvannamalai in South India.

k@ from Paris, France
