  1. Congratulations Amrut!

    At least this war helped you in getting award.

    Keep clicking pictures of these kind of fights and win awards..


  2. Please understand these photo journos and cameramen risks their lives and earn their living. They are paid very less as compared to the reporting journos. Thry are the guys who get the news from the feild. It is not about Amrut winning an award for a photo which was violent, it is about being at the right place at the right time.

    I remember, when the Bgm bandh episode (Vijay More attack) happened few years ago, he was covering the news for a vernacular news paper. There was a lathi charge at Rani Chanamma circle and he had to bear the brunt. Police also attacked a few Sr. Journalists and they were injured.

    If you do not appreciate their work, atleast do not discourage them.

  3. Basically Amruit is a excellent phographer , at least in Belgaum he is the only lenenceman who click with apt news sence ..had good collection of varity ..Amrit keep it up ..expecting same quality work in future..
