"Pahaadon Se Pyaar..." - Ronak Sawant


Pata nahi kya hua hai mujhe aajkal,

Pahaadon mein apne aap ko dekh raha hoon,

Pahaadon mein apne dil ko mehsoos kar raha hoon,

Pahaadon mein jaise shayad khud hi ko dhoondh raha hoon.

Abhi toh yahin hoon main par dil hai kahin pahaadon mein.

Yeh pahaadon se pyaar hai mera yaa kuch aur...

"Abhi Toh Bohat Kuch Hai Baaki..." - A Poem by Ronak Sawant


Din aata hai,
Din jaata hai,
Rukhta nahi hai yeh kabhi,
Bas yunhi chalte rehta hai.

Zindagi ka dastoor bhi kuch aisa hi hota hai,
Jo kismat mein likha hain shayad wahi milta hai.
Waqt toh bohat hain humaare paas yahan,
Lekin uski chaabee apne haathon mein kahan.

Har pal yahan kuch na kuch hote rehta hai,
Din bas yuhin dhalte jaata hai.
Kabhi hai khushi toh kabhi hai gham,
Kabhi chehre pe hassi toh kabhi aankhein hai nam.

Kuch seekhle iss din se yaara,
Aayenge na aise lamhein dobara.
Rukhna mat itne dur aakar,
Abhi toh bohat kuch hai baaki mere humsafar.

The Step Up by Johnnie Walker | Photography by Ronak Sawant


“Photographs that captured right, speak infinite.”
- Ronak Sawant

Back in 2015, I did my first ever Professional Photography Work for India’s First Digital Mentorship Program – “The Step Up by Johnnie Walker”. The Step Up is basically a Talent Hunt Show which is also tagged as “India’s First Digital Mentorship Program”. This show thus aims to provide a platform to youngsters to showcase talent in Fashion, Food, and Music. Mentored by the Mentors like designer Nikhil Thampi, chef Nikhil Chib and musician duo Gaurav Raina and Tapan Raj of Midival Punditz.

The Step Up... A Reality Show in which I was the only Photographer and a younger Person among all the Step Up Team, Artists, Cast and Crew. I covered all the episodes, in general, the entire show that included Fashion, Food, and Music. Thanks to Globosport for this opportunity. This was indeed a big thing for me as a Photographer because I always wanted to try something apart from Street Photography (the style I love to do). So, it’s a dream come true.

I know it has already been a year since the show and now I am publishing all the Step Up pictures. The reason because I was busy with my final year BSc IT Graduation studies that happened right after the shoot. So all the pictures I had captured I just have to save them into my PC as I had to focus on my last year of IT.

Also, even when I was shooting the show that time I was into my SY-BSc IT 4th semester exam phase. I even missed my 2 exam papers during the process as I had this shooting schedule and some Dance Performances in other cities outside Mumbai. But all thanks to my BSc IT coordinator teacher for understanding my dreams and letting me do what I wanted to do.

Finally, I’m all done with this BSc IT studies. Though the 6th-semester result is still yet to come, but who cares! So this is how I started doing edits of all the pictures I captured in 2015 right after my final year IT exams got over.

So here it is, The Step Up Photography Video. These are some of the best shots from the shoot all in the form of a video. I say it again, it’s a dream come true!

I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed shooting and creating it.

Here is the video:

“थेंब आनंदाचे (पाऊस आला)” - A Poem by Ronak Sawant


आले ते थेंब, आला आनंद
हो आला, पाऊस आला
चेहऱ्यावर आले हस्य परत, तर मन झाले उदंड
कारण आला आपला लाडका, पाऊस आला.

यंदा आम्हा-सगळयांना फार उत्सुकता होती तुझी पाऊसा,
कारण दुष्काळामुळे सर्वांचा घरी आलेला वळसा.
आखेर तु आलास,
नि सगळयांना चिंब भिजवू लागलास.

ह्या सुखलेल्या नदयांना आता तुझ्यामुळे पूर येईल,
हे सुखलेले झाडे पानांने, फळांने व फुलांने भरून येतील,
सृष्टी हिरव्या रंगाने रंगून जाईल,
मोर वना-वनात थुई थुई नाचू लागतील.

हा सर्व निसर्ग सुंदर दिसेल,
बळीराजाच्या बळाला आता यश मिळेल.
हे सर्व काही आभाळातून कोसलणाऱ्या तुझ्या ह्या थेंबांचे कमाल,
तर रिम-झिम पडणाऱ्या तुझ्या ह्या सरींची धमाल.

काही लोकं मनसोक्त भिजून तुझा आनंद घेतात,
तर काही लोकं पावसात नाचून व खेळून प्रफुल्लित होतात.
काही लोकं भजी व टपरीवरची चहा मित्रांसोबत घेऊन मजा करतात,
तर काही लोकं घरबसल्या परिवारासोबत गाणी ऐकून पावसा तुझा स्वागत करतात.

सर्वांना आपला वाटणारा तू,
जेव्हा गेल्या काही वर्षात गेलास निघून,
फार वाईट वाटलं मनाला तर कधी आले रडू,
आमच्याकडून काही चूक झाली असेल तर मोठ्या मनाने माफ टाक करून.

तुझ्या थेंबाने मन होते ताजेतवाने,
तर तुझ्या थेंबाने आठवतात ती बालपणाची पावसाळ्यातील आठवणे.
तुझ्या थेंबाने मन होते प्रसन्न,
तर तुझ्या थेंबाने बदलते हे जीवन.

तुझ्या थेंबात आहे दिलासा,
तर तुझ्या थेंबात आहे काही तरी खास,
तुझ्या थेंबात आहे जलसा,
तर तुझ्या प्रत्येक थेंबात आहे आनंद वाटण्याचे ध्यास.

ही ठंड गार हवा,
तर हा मातीचा गंध,
किती अनोखा आहे ना,
हा पावसाचा आनंद.

असाच येत जा नेहमी पावसा,
आणि असाच आपल्या थेंबाने सर्वांना आनंद वाटत राह.
कारण, तु आम्हाला हवा आहेस,
तु आम्हाला हवा आहेस.
