Following a dear friend’s advise, I had submitted a photograph to Your Shot section of the National Geographic Magazine in February / March. Having little or no hope that it would even be amongst the Daily Dozen, I totally forgot about the submission. One fine day in July, another dear friend posted a comment with the news. It was only then that I realized that I had deleted the email, which had the notification from National Geographic, without even opening it Since then, I have been carefully reading every email that comes my way and few correspondences later, folks at NGM confirmed that this would appear, in print, in January 09 issue. Needless to say, this has been the best gift ever.
I know for a fact that I would have never seen this day but for constant support from the best place on God’s green earth and very many friends from around the world – Thank you!!
