On 10th January 2019, Photography Society- SRM AP’s photography club, began its aspirational journey of helping the students follow their passion in photography. The club is headed by the in-house photographer, Hemanth Kumar K and started off with 25 student members.
They have come a long way since then and celebrated their first anniversary with 80 kids in the orphanage- Chiguru Children’s Village.
The student members of the club- Hemanth P, Hemanth N, Sathvik P, Jayanth S, Chetan M, Sadwika, and Harini along with their mentor Hemanth, Vineesh Sagar (Manager-Student Affairs), and Neelima Krishnakumar (Student Counsellor) arranged for 240 books, a large cake, and headed off to share their achievement and happiness with the kids at the orphanage.
The kids ecstatically enjoyed the fun-packed day playing games, eating cakes, and simply running around with the sheer joy of having people around them.
Hemanth Kumar says, “All this while we tried being unique when taking photographs, and the will to do something different on our club’s anniversary made us choose to spend the day sharing our happiness with the kids. On seeing them smile, we forgot our own struggles and problems, and thus, we plan to continue doing similar work in the coming days. When we look back a few years from now, we would know we captured the memories of the day in not just our cameras but imprinted them in our hearts”.
