Photograph on ‘Independence’ by Haridhar Rengasamy

The Cypher is an exclusive community of some of our favourite artists and talent across categories of artforms. 

For the first theme of August, here’s the submission of Haridhar Rengasamy from Shiv Nadar University Delhi, a member of the (Photography and Video) Cypher on the topic – ‘India and Independence- what it means to you, personally in today’s day and age’.   



“Independence for me is the discovery of oneself.

Being free of the strings of social constructs.

The day you realise that not everything can be classified into Yin and Yang.

Life isn’t Black and White, it is infinite shades of Grey.”
