DPSG Dehradun Photography Contest

Capture a moment of true happiness We all know that happiness is a feeling, an emotion that cannot be described but is felt, experienced and lived ….that special moment captured in the simplest of things ; that little flash of joy that is a moment seized , not artificially created and never bought.

Udayavani Childrens Day Photo Contest 2020

It could be in the most unobtrusive, unassuming happenings ….the brimming, bubbling, effervescing happiness in relationships, the spontaneous, unplanned, impulsive joy at celebrations, or just quiet contentment, indulgence, pleasure of fully experiencing the world around you …it’s serenity, its tranquility, its beauty !
