Once upon a time with the Kanchi swamiji

Churumuri takes great pleasure in introducing its newest contributor, the well-known photojournalist T.S. NAGARAJAN. A former photographic officer in the photo division of the government of India—a job that saw him work closely with H.Y. Sharada Prasad on Yojana mgazine—Nagarajan is best known as (probably) the only chronicler of the interiors of turn-of-the-century houses.

In his first piece for us, Nagarajan describes an assignment to “shoot” the late paramacharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswati.
