Room No. 206 (2/4)
IIT Powai, Mumbai.
.
Talking about his experience of living in the campus, he says, “This place is very nurturing. It gives you an opportunity to explore yourself and be whoever you want to be.”
Being in the campus for 7 long years and spending most of his time alone in peace has brought him closer to himself he says. During these years, he has developed a pure love for nature and has become highly devoted to the art of meditation.
“I felt there’s more to life and I needed a guide to take me there. So I said to myself, ‘Let’s give it a shot. Let’s see if it makes sense.’ And now it makes more sense than anything else.”
Meditation has becomes a very integral part of his routine and he practices it every morning in the peace and seclusion of his hostel room.
“When you meditate, you can listen to your body and then your body in turn listens to you. It puts you in control and as you go deeper, you realize than you know nothing of yourself or what your body is capable of.”

Room No. 206 (1/4)
IIT Powai, Mumbai.
.
The room belonged to a small towner from Himachal Pradesh who at the time was on the verge of completing his P.H.D from IIT Powai after 7 years. The Dr. was working on his final thesis in the subject of Combustion.
I shot this series as part of a job assignment. The idea was to get inspired from the KonMari way of living. 
Like in the KonMari method, you surround yourself with things that spark joy in your life and eliminate the things that you don’t need, I found it quite similar to the way he had completely embraced things that he cherishes the most by spending most of his time with/around them. Being at peace with where he was, he eliminated the rest of the world outside the campus for 7 years.

More coming up from this series.

What if the sunset came in different colours? While it can't be a reality (unless global warming takes it too far), I hope this series helps you take a leap into imagination of the idea. .
