Thank you ....

Thank you .... by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
Thank you ...., a photo by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka on Flickr.

Today is the 13 May 2011; it’s been a kind of special day for me as I was back from Malaysia on same day on 2009 to Nepal. It’s been two years in Nepal, and I learn a lot about life, people, photography, filmmaking and much more.

It’s been while that I have not uploaded any photographs on my flickr site nor did any blog post, somebody said that I was lost, somebody said me that I might lost interest in photography. But truth is not that, I still have interest in photography as I use to have and I am not lost too, yes! I was inactive for few weeks but not lost. I have some stuff to take care so I did not able to give my full time for what I love to do.

Two years in Nepal is very fruitful to me, I learn a lot, meet very interesting and talented people work with them too, working with talented people make me feel that I am talented too but I still have to learn a lot and way to go. I want to thank all people who made my two years very wonderful in Nepal.

The Taste of Coffee

The Taste of Coffee by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
The Taste of Coffee is an experience of life lived with coffee in the farm as witnessed by three artists who set out to capture the richness of home-grown coffee beans on their canvas, microphone and camera respectively. Three artists, Clara Puddu, Eloïse Calatayud and Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka, with diverse skills and passion in their respective fields of art have highlighted the uniqueness of this rich and aromatic crop through their paintings, sound design and photography through this exhibition.

However, The Taste of Coffee isn't just about coffee, it is about the people involved in the sowing and reaping of the crop. The exhibition tries to draw attention to the lives of people involved in coffee farming though the chores of Surya Prasad Adhikari and his wife Saraswoti Adhikari, who run a permaculture coffee farm in Lekhnath -10, Begnas of Kaski district, Nepal. The exhibition also highlights the couple's perception and contribution to conservation and improvements of local varieties of cultivation, organic farming and sustainable uses of local biological resources.

The Taste of Coffee is up in painting, sound and photography exhibition at Nepal Art Council Gallery, Babarmahal, Kathmandu 19th through 27th February 2011. The exhibition will be inaugurated by veteran photographer Mr. Hari Bangsha Kirant.

The exhibition has been organised by with support from Galleria CUC and Momomagic.

Those eyes ….

Those eyes ….by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
Me and my friend went for a photo shoot at a brick factory at Bade gawn, Lalitpur to do a story about human right, I did not find anything related to what I was looking for but my friend did find something. But I did some random photography around and found this boy looking at me and I feel that his eyes are trying to tell something to me but still I cannot figure out what he wants to say?

Hunt for a good coffee ….

Hunt for a good coffee ….by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
As a coffee lover, I always want to know from where the coffee comes from that I am drinking each and every day and last few days I got to know a lot about the coffee and all the process that goes through before coming into my cup. Coffee grown in some part of Nepal goes to all around the world and it is the best coffee all around the world too.

Coffee Killer ....

Coffee Killer Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
Some says home is where your heart is and some says home is where your art is but I think home is where everything is; love, care and what you need is. In this photograph is a regular coffee, but the coffee that I drink in my home have something special that I never find in any coffee shop or other place that offer me coffee.

Taking it hard just like you knew I do ....

Taking it hard just like you knew I do Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
Cried all night 'til there was nothin' more
What use am I as a heap on the floor?
Heaving devotion but it's just no good
taking it hard just like you knew I would.

Taking it hard just like you knew I do.
