Story Series #3
Cycling through beautiful Jharkhand😎
How often do you meet someone who has the distinct recognition of being Jharkhand's first tribal photographer to have been showcased internationally. I reached Jadugoda drenched in the rain that i encountered while cycling on the way. But the warm welcome by Birulee family made me feel at home at thier spacious abode. As i enter the room of this young photographer, I see small figurines of Batman and Spider-Man, something you'd find normally in a teenagers room. But for someone who is born in a family that has exemplified the fight against UCIL's (Uranium Corporation of India Limited) Uranium radiation pollution, superheroes dont just sit on a house shelf.
has photographically documented the horrific effect that Uranium mining's radiation pollution has been having on the native Ho tribals who live in this region. His photographs have been featured in Uranium film festivals and Anti Uranium photo exhibitions in Brazil, Canada and Japan. He has been published by @thetimesofindia
among others. He may be in his twenties, when most kids out of college are looking for their first job, but for Ashish, these photo exhibitions are just a beginning. He plans to learn film making and document the struggle of inhabitants of Jadugoda against radiation poisoning. His youthful demeanor and a love for the camera instantly makes us connect and what begins, is the first step in our friendship. I'm honored to know him and wish he accomplishes all that he aspires to.
