All in a day’s work for our valiant lensmen

27 March 2008

The life of photographers and videographers in India has become hell thanks to the relentless media boom, with dozens of them jostling for space, nudging each other, often coming to blows with each other, all to capture a frame which the reader may not notice, and sometimes not even care.

The problem multiplies manifold when top Indian leaders with their tight security requirements are around.

When police denied access to lensmen at Pompai church in the coastal town of Mangalore, during Congress member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi‘s visit on Wednesday, they went on a flash strike to draw attention to their woes.
