Solar powered Help-Portrait (2013)

Solar smiles at Siuri, Birbhum – West bengal

This was our first Solar powered Help Portrait, Kolkata session! Done in collaboration with the local community in the interiors of West Bengal, Kolkata – India. Many families in the quaint little town called Huckukpara, had embraced the use of Solar Powered Lighting which resulted in substantial savings and increased productivity in their daily lives. We applaud the wonderful folks at ONergy for bringing affordable Solar Solutions to these remote places and wish them all the best in their mission of ONergising 1 million lives!

“A photograph is a portrait painted by the sun” ~ Anonymous

The Quote below perfectly summed up our first SOLAR POWERED Help-Portrait !! In this remote village, our portable printer ran on Solar powered electricity to produce the prints.

“A photograph is a portrait painted by the sun” ~Anonymous

Sujoy in a rare introspective mood while staring at his own photograph. “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

Seema studies at night under a solar-charged lamp. She is confident that with the extra hours that she is putting in, she will give tough competition to the students of other districts in the approaching board examinations.

Sujoy and his gang are having a ball (literally!) at the local ground. An intense game of football is underway on the swampy fields of the village under the blazing sun. It rained heavily just a few hours back and now the sun is shining in its full glory. This fickle weather is ironically very symbolic of the winds of change that Huchukpara is witnessing of late.

In the quaint hamlet of Huchukpara in Suri (Birbhum,West Bengal), Sujoy (the boy with the unbuttoned shirt) and his friends proudly pose in front of his Solar powered house. The Solar Panel can be seen at the background on top of an improvised bamboo pole. In this remote village with no electricity, Solar energy is literally lighting up a lot of lives and smiles.
