From childhood she has liked photography because her father was an amateur photographer.  She talks about the difficulty a woman faces in a profession like photography. She says, “It is very difficult for women. I am lucky that my husband fully supports me. So I can try my best to click good pictures. But the main thing is that we cannot go anywhere at any time. Some places are not safe for ladies.”She being skeptical about lack of awareness about South Korea amongst Indians, adds, “For us Singapore, Beijing and Bangkok are common destination these days. But I feel we do not know very well about Korea, we associate Korean culture with China and Japan, which is wrong. They have their own culture with incredible scenic beauty and four seasons. I think it is the safest country in the world.”last_img
